WEM 2012 to feature CS 1.6

A new season of WEM will reportedly take place on October 23-28 in Hangzhou, China featuring Counter-Strike 1.6.

Although cnFrag.com reported that the season is already scheduled, according to Can Yang from OGN which is the organization behind WEM and e-Stars, WEM is still in talks with the local Chinese government regarding dates.

According to Yang, a World Esports Masters season is however confirmed for 2012, although so far the dates for the event are not set due to the ongoing negotiations.


WEM 2012 to return to Hangzhou 

Furthermore, cnFrag.com reported that WEM is planning on switching to a format featuring qualification for their event as opposed to direct invitations, which is how WEM has picked their teams for each of their past events.

The upcoming season is expected to be bigger than previous ones too, which could mean an increase in the number of participating teams similarly to how e-Stars went from six teams all the way to sixteen in 2011.

So I made a comment about CS 1.6 not dying in 2012 like many "experts" predicted, and it gets deleted? :O Anyway, I hope this gets to be a good tournament. More proof that CS 1.6 is alive and shooting!

Ofc it got deleted cause noone fucking cares if it or it isn't dying.. main this is that we already know it isn't and won't since we will still play it but you ofc think about making a stupid thread which leads to dying...
2012-05-23 15:16
Thread? No, comment. And you should care about this tournaments, because the lack of them will lead them to the demise of CS 1.6. Capiche?
2012-05-23 22:38
Nope.

worth betting in cs, because despite being an old game already, continues to be played by thousands, and has a great community behind, and for me still one off the best first person games. It seems that 2012 will be a good year for cs :D
2012-05-23 15:51
Very Nice !

Hell Yeah!

2012-05-23 19:50
People have been saying that "CS is dying" since like 2005. Maybe, just maybe, people will stop saying it in 2020, when people still choose CS 1.6 over the likes of CoD or whatever the Xbox kiddies will play then. Maybe.
