DreamHack Valencia to feature CS

DreamHack will be hosting a full size LAN event in Valencia on September 21-23 with a BYOC area and eSports tournaments in six games including Counter-Strike 1.6.

DreamHack Open's dates were announced already over three months ago but now the full details of their Valencia stop have been published with Counter-Strike 1.6 being one of the game titles at the tournament.

The Swedish LAN organizer also has another stop remaining in Bucharest roughly a month later which is another possibility for a tournament in Counter-Strike 1.6 but plans for the Romanian stop are yet to be released.

CS 1.6 to be played at another DreamHack tournament 

According to DreamHack Spain's website, the tournament in Valencia will act as a qualifier for DreamHack Winter 2012 which implies that Counter-Strike 1.6 will also be featured at the Winter event, traditionally the biggest of the year.

DreamHack has been a long time supporter of Counter-Strike 1.6 which has been their most popular game in the BYOC area as well. They have shown loyalty to games by also still including QuakeLive as a title at this past weekend's summer event.

dont hate IEM, hate on ESL organizers
2012-06-19 19:33
lol, so you say that its stupid to invest money (and make a bigger income) in a more popular game than cs 1.6... tell me more about how retarded IEM organizers are. :)
2012-06-19 20:37
IDGAF ABOUT MONEY, BUT U DO WOW, well they pick of cs 1.6 from the line and makes the fans unhappy! so what do you choose, fans or money!??!??
2012-06-20 00:14
No. Im not talking about myself, but about the investors who can make the professional players still want to play. And no, they dont give a fuck about fans, they are interested in money. And in this case, they are right. They are not there to have fun, but to make as much money as they can. And a game which has 200k viewers is a much better advertising space then a game which has barely 20k at the finals.
2012-06-20 10:14
Thats the part you and iem dont understand making the fans happy = more money it doesnt make sense if they have 200k viewers in a game (which they dont have ofc) or 20k..
2012-06-20 13:40
okay mate :)
2012-06-20 15:48
Rofl as if to say the fans alone are bankrolling IEM. Just shut up you deluded fool.
2012-06-20 19:20
Fans = more support = more cash whats so hard to understand LOL so just stfu please noob.
2012-06-20 19:32
Where is the support coming from? Fans are not putting up anywhere near the numbers SC2/LoL/DotA get in streams. Your logic is retarded, but hey i'm on HLTV, 96% of you are spastics.
2012-06-22 18:47
Ofc they are putting anywhere cuz no fans = 0 viewers, seems logic right? and it makes no sense that a other game have more viewers. But yeah its ok i know you are britian some people there have to rethink their mistakes :/

another fail by cadred. cs1.6 isnt dead yet. but let's face it... it will be soon. anyway, nice good time! this may be the last big cs.16 event. i`m gonna watch all pov`s
2012-06-19 19:00
Well 1.6 is gonna be in gamegune which top teams will attend. The article also states that this is a qualifier for dreamhack winter which is according to the article bigger and better than the summer event. So I think dreamhack winter will be the best tournament of the year.
2012-06-19 19:29
they can't get rid of cs they can just edit cs for more graphics and so on cause it has the best amount of players so possibly i think they will be adding more graphics menus and so on
2012-06-19 19:14
GO K1CK! 2nd time in a row, let's go!
2012-06-19 19:18
Very good news! Thx DH!
2012-06-19 19:21
I don't play video games beside cs (mostly 1.6 but GO & csp too & some mario kart wii but that's irrelevant;). I read too often that 1.6 is dying, I just have one question : which game(s) could bring in more people (players and spectators) and prize money than 1.6?
2012-06-19 19:28
I don't quite understand your question. If you're saying 1.6 has the most spectators and prizes well sadly, it doesn't. It did once upon a time though :) if youre saying which game that is coming out could do this? None off the top of my head right now, the three major esports games seem to be holding a solid spot, for now. (dota2, LoL, SC2) but 1.6 and SC:BW are the great grandpas of Esports :)
2012-06-19 19:34
I think he meant FPS. That's the sadest part, CS (team-game) and Quake (1v1) are the best FPS in their categories, and both are on the down part cause some of newfags kids want some GoOD GrapHiSmS. So whatever happen next, another FPS will be a regression.
2012-06-19 19:49
Ah well as far as competitive FPS goes there is of course!.... Well... There's that one game where the achievements pop up on your screen! It's just... Greeeeeat......
2012-06-19 20:02
I wonder if there is any FPS bringing more spectators/players than 1.6 ? Does that mean FPS does not interest people anymore? SC2 and RPG type has always been followed by many but I don't like those :(
2012-06-20 16:20
At the moment, no. Halo did okay but I think pro scene is dead(?) and CoD:MW3 blows. But pretty much all the CoD series after the fourth are completely unfit for competitive play.
2012-06-20 17:12
Dota 2, LoL, Sc2 & 1 atlest.
2012-06-19 19:33
i feel so bad for my friend that you wrote to me -me "hey wanna go play some cs 1.6?" -him "no cs 1.6 is dead anyways" -1 to him :-D

when cpl died iem came up. now iem died (actually became bigger died for cs) another tour will come up :).. maybe dreamhack will replace iem with a lot lower payroll for sure. we have fnatic BEAT IT, copenhagen games , dreamhack , gamegune , ESWC(if they do an event this year) , World eSports Masters, other lesser tournaments like ASUS summer,spring etc and maybe its the time one of the best e-sports organizations ESEA to take charge and start organizing a world championship at United States! i think that would revive a little bit and the american scene!! also IEM said that there will be CS in some tournaments that are worthwhile of having a cs tour. Like a european one that will feature loads of teams :) dont get desperate "For a truly global project like ours, with events on four different continents and many different countries, we require game titles with professional players and teams from all corners of the world. In the recent years of Counter-Strike 1.6, the game has retained its status of a top professional game in Europe but declined in other parts of the world. This was evident at our events outside of Europe. With this as the basis, we have decided to take Counter-Strike off the main titles list. This means that if CS 1.6 will be featured at an event, it will only be for certain events where it is a perfect fit for the Intel Extreme Masters locally" from IEM announcement

We all were mistaken, we thought that IEM and WCG are the best tournaments, but now I see that they are hunting only for money, but only some torunaments still care about eSport scence. Thank you Dreamhack.
2012-06-19 23:46
care about the eSport scene? Jesus Christ some of you guys are delusional
2012-06-20 00:56
Maybe I'm delusional, but if they cared only about money, they would drop cs long time ago. Because Dota, LoL, sc brings a lot more profit.
