WCG ends with PC gaming; go mobile

The World Cyber Games will shift their focus onto the mobile phone gaming platform and will discontinue with all PC games.

The news about WCG to focus on mobile phone gaming has hit the streets, but still no official announcement has been made from the South Korean organization. Although WCG announced their annual game voting a while back with CS 1.6 featured, it looks like they have changed their mind now.

A few days ago the rumor popped in various forum threads and pcgames.com.cn also brought a report on the matter. Today, cadred.org posted a leaked letter they have come in possession of. The letter has allegedly been sent out to all WCG partners, signed by WCG CEO Brad Lee.

The leaked letter reads:

"In recent years, the gaming and IT trends have been moving so fast. In the current status of gaming and IT industry, one of the most remarkable information to us was the mobile shipments have exceeded the PC shipments.

As wide spread mobile devices, mobile gamer would rapidly increase as well. In this situation, the major PC game publishers have been expanding their investment and business in the mobile game development & publishing.

This information was very cruel to us since we had been committed to the PC-Based gaming event for long time. We have witnessed that there have been many companies and organizations who went out of business because they didn't put effort to change. Therefore we concluded that we should create WCG's new identity.

Under this circumstance, we made a hard decision that we should bring the mobile, new key sector in the game industry, in our event concept. Hence, WCG decided to start the Mobile Game-Based Festival.

To create the Mobile Game-Based Festival, WCG is under the discussion with the sponsors and game publishers regarding new event structure and the countries for new festival. Therefore, there will be no longer present event module, such as Pan Championship, and PC-Based National Finals. And, the official game titles of WCG will consist of mobile games."

The official WCG titles will therefore in the future only feature mobile phone gaming at their events. Mobile phone gaming has already been featured at several of their events. In 2009 the CS final between fnatic and AGAiN was moved off main stage for the second map, in order to make room for mobile phone gaming.

Also last year we witnessed WCG go big with mobile phone gaming, handing out the biggest prize at the 2011 finals to Asphalt 6 on Samsung's Android smart phone. A total of $55,000 went to top three finishers, with the winner taking home $40,000.

With the focus switching to mobile phone gaming, we can look back and at the 11 years where WCG featured PC titles, including Valve's Counter-Strike every year.

Year Host city Winner Winnings
2011 Korea Busan, South Korea Poland ESC Gaming $25,000
2010 United States Los Angeles, USA Ukraine Natus Vincere $25,000
2009 China Chengdu, China Poland AGAiN $35,000
2008 Germany Cologne, Germany Denmark mTw $50,000
2007 United States Seattle, USA France emuLate $55,000
2006 Italy Monza, Italy Poland PGS $60,000
2005 Singapore Singapore United States Team 3D $50,000
2004 United States San Francisco, USA
United States Team 3D $50,000
2003 Korea Seoul, South Korea Sweden SK Gaming $40,000
2002 Korea Daejeon, South Korea
Russia M19 $40,000
2001 Korea Seoul, South Korea Canada LnD $40,000

Stay tuned as the World Cyber Games are still to make the official announcement of the shift to mobile phone gaming.

Yeah. Total Facepalm. They don't seem to realize that although there are plenty of "mobile gamers," these people aren't actually "gamers." They are people who own cellphones and occasionally use them to play games when they are the train/bored/etc. I don't understand what makes them think that the mobile gaming community is competitive enough, or even CARES enough, to spend time watching other people play mobile games. In my opinion, WCG will either reverse or change this decision to include PC games, this is an elaborate troll, or WCG will die. (This is from an American, not South Korean, point of view)
2012-03-26 17:46
Couldn't agree more. Hopefully they'll come to their senses.. soon.
2012-03-26 17:58
This.
2012-03-26 18:14
yeah i guuess 40k prize money for one person by simply playing a game on their phone isnt enough motivation for most people..
2012-03-26 18:16
nobody really cares about mobile games so nobody will know about it, and the event will be a total failure in a way, good riddance. Last years were pretty lame with only a few good teams attending, many weak ones. If only WCG had understood earlier that video games will never be recognized as a real sport then maybe they could have made good events, without this dumb rule against players from another country or all this drama in ceremonies

Predicting is one thing. Not saying it won't happen. Someone well within the Turtle ranks.
2012-03-26 19:57
I think it might get one more season. It's clear they've been waiting for CS:GO but I'm not sure if the game will be ready in time for the next season and there's no way they're going to pick up CS:S after many years of ignoring it.
2012-03-27 01:00
Yeah, I think it's one more season at best. Not so sure they'll go with CS:GO, though - unless Valve/Hidden Path change their agenda drastically. And if they actually do go for CS:GO, I'm certain it will flop. And CS:S, haha, yeah.
2012-03-27 01:24
Well they need, or at least I hope they need a team based FPS title at their events (esports would be fucking dull without one as I personally feel it's the most exciting one to watch). It's apparent that 1.6 is on the way out as a top level esport, no matter how much people will hate to hear those words. CS:S has never been and most likely will never be a top level esport, not matter how much CS:S players will hate to hear those words. CS:GO is basically the only option for people who love the FPS genre and although it may be very different from the other two games it still keeps the core elements of CS (skill required, simple and tactical). CoD/BF will never be created with esports in mind so you can forget about them. As sad as it sounds, if CS:GO fails as an esport, FPS fails as an esport. PS. Is there a notification on this site if I get a reply? I can never tell if someone's replied to my post or not :(
2012-03-27 02:04
I agree with your first two paragraphs. But I refuse to believe CS:GO will make it in the top circuit unless Valve/Hidden Path change their agenda drastically. I don't blame them for having their own agenda at all. It's quite understandable as they're a game development company. But they will obviously not be catering for the already existing community, and the game will not be able to gather enough players to make it in any form of e-sport top circuit. You "Community" tab should turn red when you get a notification!
2012-03-27 02:13
Well yeah, catering to the two existing communities won't be at the very top of the agenda and neither should it be, they're going to need to entice new players. That doesn't mean the game can't be a success though, as I said even if it's different to 1.6 and CS:S it will still retain the key CS elements; difficult to master; money system; tactical; simple; fun. I've seen first hand how open the CS:S community are to switching when it's released but that won't be enough to make it a huge competitive title, for that to happen the 1.6 community need to take a leap of faith too. Although a similar scenario to the one when CS:S was released and nobody switched, this time 1.6 won't be around for much longer so if they don't there will be no CS, for anyone. I just really hope people give it a chance despite its obvious differences. The CPH Games should be a decent barometer as to how it will play as a competitive title, I'm pretty excited for it :D
2012-03-27 02:35
I'm not so sure about that. Counter-Strike is not Call of Duty; it's not a franchise that attracts new players any more. I do think CS:GO would depend somewhat on getting players from both CS1.6 and CS: Source to make the switch, in addition to completely new users, of course. So did CS: Condition Zero, though. And even though I loved, and still love the game, it did not enjoy much success. I kinda fear just that. I don't thinnk CS:GO will make 1.6 players switch, even though I'm commenting on this in a very early stage. If nothing else comes up, like CSPromod or a CS2, whenever that may be, CS1.6 will become a casual game with a few small events in Eastern Europe. With CS:GO's current situation, I don't think Copenhagen Games will be a barometer of how it will play as a competitive title. The game is not competitive at all in its current form. And I don't think people should see it as a barometer either, because it will just make it worse.
2012-03-27 02:51
i can't imagine see a match between SK vs fnatic for example on a iphone dafuq ?
2012-03-26 20:21
I saw this move coming, with Angry Birds Space being released ;)

2012-03-26 16:43
haha, seems legit
2012-03-26 16:43
PGS, AGAiN, ESC. Good to see it. WCG was the best event, but now, when almost all teams have players from different countries, WCG lost on prestige.

Are you fucking kidding me?, How can little mobile games EVER be competitive. C'mon this is so DUMB, i can't believe it. WCG will surely go bankrupt with this idea, and lose thousands of followers, thanks but no thanks, mobile games are made for shortening time, either when your waiting for someone in the car, or just in the office with nothing to really do, but not for COMPETITIVE playing.
2012-03-26 17:08

Nice! Gonna practice minecraft now :)
2012-03-26 17:20
lol its a good thing none of you will become business majors. this choice will being them more money and come on as you all know, every sport revolves around money. cs revolves around money. no money no cs. doesnt even matter if the community is large and continues playing
2012-03-26 17:20
Um... The community IS the "money" we're the reason that this game gets any spotlight at all. It's the same with any game. Maybe there is a lot of money in making cell phone games but I don't see how playing them could make any. The only way to make money off this is how much advertising they'll be doing for new phones which if no one is watching to even see the advertisements it all seems kind of irrelevant then. This move screams failure to me.
2012-03-26 17:58
well i feel like more people would be likely to buy a game that can be readily dled on their phone anywhere than buy a mouse or monitor becaus the pro pc players are using that. as gay as mobile game competition sounds, there are many people who. would practice to get a shot at that prize money and "fame". i do agree that community is money b but if sponsors arent interested and the economy sucks, cs competition dies. bottomline there will always be more money in mobile phones than pc gaming.
2012-03-26 18:09
I agree with you there. Cell phones might be the biggest thing on earth right now. But I just couldn't see people watching people play on their cell phones on a main stage screen. That sounds incredibly boring. Which is where this throws me off, what money is to be made if no one watches the streams and advertisements. I think they'll get a lot of great advertising deals and it'll make them a lot of money for the first few tournaments but when no body is watching the streams eventually these advertisements won't be needed thus, wcg will meet it's end. I don't know. I see where you're coming from, cell phones are very easy to market it's just the games played on them in my opinion, simply has no real target audience( for viewing )now creating these games is a whole different story. If game creation is the way they'll make money okay then this is a very smart move but if organizing live tournaments is there ace in the hole, well then I believe they're morons. Because I don't see anyone wanting to watch. Just play.
2012-03-26 18:26
well put. now that you say it and i think about it, it would be hard to imagine how anyone would find the competition interesting when mobile games have always been casual. how would wcg even reach out to the game buyers and players and advertise their tournament. i suppose the games news will announce it but most dont care to read that. but there are so many people with phones who download games and if they happen to be playing a wcg game, there could be a large majority of those players who would be interested enough to watch others fight for prize money over the streamon thier phone wherever they are. furthermore thegames they choose will not be simple like angry birds although it may be at the convention in a booth. the games thry choose have some com petition quality that allow people to play multiplayer.i believe most of thier money will come from advertising an sponsors who support the phones and games
2012-03-26 19:06
what fame do? do you really think there will be a PR0 comMunitY and ClaNz of angrywords and tetris?? lol.

2012-03-26 18:39
cs? did you that WCG is not only about cs, What about games like lol, SC2, WoW, and others? do
2012-03-26 19:02
good point but how are these games that much different than cs in terms of number of viewers. wcg is basing their decision on stats and speculation. if there is a significant number of people who are are playing a mobile game then more than likely a large percentage will become interestex in wcg.
2012-03-26 19:12

2012-03-26 17:58
Why? Because tablets and phones are less than a computer? As far as I know there are phones running GTA 3 like a charm. How many PC's could do that when it came out? And now that Quadcore is on the move on tablets shit its gonna get hot! Its obvious that I wouldn't agree for this, but there's no problem on supporting this platform at least for a game or two, the same way you people would like CS 1.6 to be supported :)
2012-03-27 19:21

Finally WCG have realized that there is little to no interest in Counter-Strike 1.6 anymore -- but dropping PC gaming as a whole? Especially as Korean gaming is only getting stronger with SC2 and LoL seems a bit excessive.

2012-03-26 17:49
Thank u .... Im done waiting eagerly for a shitty tournament which doesnt allow players to record POV's and forces people to watch their stupid orgasm inhanced korean lady commentator to fuck the whole final up for EVERY DAMN spectator ... NOT even fucking HLTV , and thats asking too much , not even demos ... CRAPPIEST rule of 5 national players only , which destroyed any chance of having a diverse team as the REPUTATION of this bullshit tournament exceeded anyones imagination of keeping players with mixed nationalities . thank u for switching to the mobile games so that asians will dominate with their small hands and nerd abilities .... THANK U WCG for relieving us of that shitty CS tournament u organized
2012-03-26 17:50
+1. It was a really shitty tournament towards the end and I think a team like Again only went to clinch a record three wins and freeze that in time, or SK went to finally win a WCG title for example. Otherwise most top teams didn't even care about going.
2012-03-26 18:05
Well, i do agree that the group stages were quite lame this year but the final was between the prime suspects anyways. SK and ESC, 2 of the best 3 teams in the world currently. So, they didn't really get it for free. I see nothing wrong with 2010 tournament, btw. All top countries were there, as far as i can remember.
2012-03-26 18:18
You're quite a piece. Having a competition of nations is not a bad idea. Just because top teams recently have mixed nationalities doesn't mean WCG was a shitty idea. It had its flaws but it was an amazing concept. If it wasn't for WCG, you wouldn't have seen a team from your(or my) country competing against the best in the world. It gave exposure to teams from unknown (in gaming circuits) countries, which is a good thing. And we've been over the "why no hltv" argument over and over again. You pay them sponsorship money out of your own pocket, they'll give you hltv, heck, they'll fly you to the venue and let you join the server as spectator. Get a brain. You're a lowlife disgrace to the 1.6 community and gaming community in general.
2012-03-26 18:14
... i have my own opinion , but i wont call u a low life :) ...
2012-03-26 18:24
Having an opinion is fine, but it is OBJECTIVELY the wrong things you are blaming WCG for. I agree the level of tournament was at a low in 2011 but you have to remember that we have had few of the most amazing tournaments and matches in the past, thanks to WCG.
2012-03-26 19:34
I think I'm in love with you

The real truth is that Counter-Strike is dying, we can say "Counter-Strike is the best game ever (this fact is true), Counter-Strike will never die (I hope)..." it's because we're afraid. But one day Counter-Strike must die.
2012-03-26 20:32

2012-03-27 19:23
Something waiting to happen ... The communities of Counter-Strike is left as a last resort self-sufficiency. Do I mean? The CS can never die because if a group taking "leadership" as it so chooses. Generally tournaments in Argentina are not supported by any company and the awards are funded by registration for the event .. Well, this may be so long as in Argentina but not being Sponsors-dependent self-sufficiency was achieved with the same players who love the game and they, the ones who decide when the CS dies in Argentina.
2012-03-27 03:30
Argentina, here I come!
