ESL Go4CS:GO cups announced

Electronic Sports League has announced Go4CS:GO powered by CM Storm cup series which includes a weekly tournament in CS:GO as well as monthly finals, totaling at 1,000€ in prize money.

Each week teams have a chance to win 100€ in the weekly cups which are open to everyone. Teams will score points based on their final placings. In the monthly cups, eight qualified teams will compete for a 500€ first place prize. Note that ESL will not be handing out CS:GO beta keys to participants, so you have to already have the game in order to participate.

ESL is hosting weekly CS:GO Cups 

The first cup takes place on Sunday, July 8, starting at 14:00 . The sign up is already open here, but note that you have to confirm your participation 30 minutes before the cup starts in order to reserve a spot. In case you didn't make it in time, ESL will open up more spots 10 minutes before the cup starts, if teams failed to confirm their participation.

Why pump money cs:go? Most people will never play it.. I do not understand

quite the opposite. most people will play it at least ones. it's 15$ for god's sake!
2012-07-05 09:36
actually alot of people play it already. Don't forget valve didn't want only 1.6 players to attract. Alot of cod and source players are joining the game. Same for a couple of 1.6 players, and at the end you get a bigger community than those 3 games mentioned above!

The only drawback is that the majority of the game is based on source.... The source community is way smaller then the 1.6 community and still the make CS:GO "sourcelike". It really makes no sense at all in my opinion. Back in the days alot of 1.6 players tried source and got back to 1.6, when valve doesn't improve the overall gameplay of GO, it won't be a succes

smaller then 1.6 :)
2012-07-05 19:01
It doesn't matter how big a community is. Lets say if you can get 20% of the player base from each cod4, source and 1.6 you already have some quiet nice activity. After all since its a new game alot of new people will try it out, and don't forgot all the other fps shooters I did not mentioned above! In my opinion the game is not as bad as the most people say. I enjoy 1.6 alot, there won't be any game that is as good as 1.6. But we need changes to get a fps-game to shine again. People expect a new cs 1.6, but people need to understand this is a whole new game. I want to see new talented players, new teams.

if it's a whole new game, it should not be called "Counter Strike" but as well it's still called "cs", we, the players, expect more . Simple as that

How can you expect more from a game in closed beta stage? cs wasn't that good back in the days aswell. They made it like a perfect fps after quiet some updates. What im trying to say is; the game is not that bad as most people say, and I bet most of the people here didn't even try it by thereselfs!
2012-07-06 11:20
The first cup of these had 1,500 clans sign up, and 700 actually sign in. It won't be a success?
2012-07-05 22:46
In my opinion CSGO is a good game, I like it.

yeah an what happened? nothing. the game turned from ultra-mega-bullshit into mega-bullshit. GTFO with your feedback-shit. As if Valve/HPE would care. 1.5 months before release, the game is still in a terrible state and 99% of all good feedback giving got ignored. Can't play that shitty game any longer. It makes me sick. It's okay if you're enjoying it, but don't call other people retards just because they don't like CS:GO. btw: that "pro-feedback" was nothing than a marketing-gag.

So much hate. 1.6 gonna die as main e-sport title. Sorry, it died this year. Only community will reamin. Deal with it guys. Year from now, CS:GO community gonna ba larger than 1.6 is now. Even when game gonna suxx. It's natural order for so.

it wont necessarily be bigger then the CS community is atm. sorry but why would you even think that? being on this forum for a long time i know that maybe 0.1 % of this community will change to CSGO i dont know maybe 40% or something will change from source to GO. how would that make it bigger? kids wont buy counter strike. thats the word on the street... that CS is not and CoD is hot.

2012-07-06 19:32
Why I think that? It's VALVE, and they leave nothing to accident. Launch of CS:GO will bring something that 1.6 and source don't have right now. A support of developer. And players are gonna have to choose. Do they play CoD 4fun or CS competitevly. I know that many of you are sure that tings gonna be like with Source release. Early baby boom for game, and back to 1.6. But we saw many proofs that times have changed, and They could be much more diffrent than for source. OFC there will always be players that gonna play 1.6 4fun, but we are here, and CS 1.6 is an e-sport here. And it's time as e-sport is coming to an end (Sadly). That's why all we can hope for now is to CS:GO become better than it is right now. So we could play and have same or even more fun with it being so competitive.

How can I accept this when I spend all my childhood with this game.If I accept cs is dead my childhood is meaningless..I can't do that.I so pissed of with Valve,they said the dont want to involve cs.1.6 player,but they do and now cs 1.6 community is getting smaller and smaller because of the improved CoD game called CS:GO...

i've posted the most out of all cs 1.6 players there but since it makes no difference i don't have any motivation to waste my time giving feedback that won't be implemented. i won't play the game myself so how it turns out won't have affect on me. if valve/hpe WANTED my help, i would give it to them, but they were only interested when i was giving them bad PR.

Honestly, i dont see a need for 1.6ers to have a say in CS:GO anyways.. its not like CSProMod is receiving anymore attention from 1.6ers as CSGO is.. and that seems to be pleasing ppl enough. Its a shame u have a defeatist attitude, but if you arent going to play the game regardless, i guess its not really down to you to beat your head against a brick wall(valve/hpe)

sure, but cs:promod is made to replicate cs 1.6, unlike cs:go. i don't see why you would call my attitude defeatist, in reality i just don't care enough. it's like carn once said, they want our help, they will come to us. they clearly don't, so let them so what they wish. it's not my job to fix their game.

It absolutely isnt your job to fix their game.. its OUR job to fix OUR game... i saw the suggestions u put up on the forums, they were sound. and many of those suggestions ARE in fact in the game.. albeit in their own incarnation that valve/hpe saw to better fit their own idea for what CSGO will be... cs:go will either be an instant hit out of the gates and bring in 10,000's of new players to the competitive scene, which will FORCE 1.6er's over... or it will fail.. and then CS in general falls of the face of the e-sports scene. Then what are we left with? CSPromod? lets face it, this community (hltv) has a poor record of embracing the death of its preferred title and moving on to the next best thing.

like i said on twitter, i don't have the need (that apparently tons of other people have) to have a "CS" or an FPS game in general as a title in esports. if/when CS 1.6 dies and if CS:Promod doesn't become a hit, i will just focus my energy on one of the many real sports i already follow. my interest in esports lies directly in cs 1.6 and as long as i don't work for any company in esports (and i don't plan on doing so). i don't like where esports is going in general.

Wow you're so blind. Even Lurrpis got your ass owned. It's so easy to call people stupid, but so hard to prove the facts you are sustaining. There's no fucking 1.6 player giving feedback. And the feedback given is just ignored, because it's not of their interest.

Also you should read what Valve was saying about CS:GO "That's what Counter-Strike is: a game of skill. And this is what CS:GO is: an effort to put anyone who has or should play Counter-Strike into the same game. That's a big enough goal but not a grand enough one to merit the name Counter-Strike 2."

CS:GO can't be competive like 1.6. Just because there's a specific. It'snot on this level. It still has many problems. And it's clear that you can't trust HPE. Why do you think BFs and CODs couldn't reach 1.6 level?

A game needs a community to be an esport game.There's nobody to advertise CS:P. Valve's using fairs like PAX 2011, E3 2012 and 1.6 events to advertise CS:GO. They made 1.6 million dolar tournament for advertise DotA2. What could CSP developers can do? Also they need so much time to make it really like 1.6. "That's what Counter-Strike is: a game of skill. And this is what CS:GO is: an effort to put anyone who has or should play Counter-Strike into the same game. That's a big enough goal but not a grand enough one to merit the name Counter-Strike 2."Valve

lol. Do you know that HPE is developing CS:GO? And do you know that HPE broke CS:S and caused the death of this game? CS:S pros started to shout in steam forums because of them. And do you know that last gameplay update came 3.5 months ago? No 1.6 pros are giving feedback on steam forums.

id say around 80% of the people posting on this forum have mental health problems, and thats not helped by the journalistic skills of HLTV, not accepting CS:GO and only writing bad things about it and making everyone on the forum think exactly the same. facts are 1.6 is dead, its never going to be big again, thats life. what all you people can do is support CS:GO and your love for CS will make it possible for CS to be the leading esports once again. if you sit here and say "1.6 4ever" and "csgo is shit" then CS will die out, i mean was 1.2, 1.3 etc good? if they were so good they why are you playing 1.6 now? because it needed fixed? just like csgo? at the end of the day, even without the 1.6 community, CS:GO will get the playerbase it needs to be included in big competitions and LANs, either be apart of it or go back to playing 1.6 but accept its not the biggest esports game anymore. (behind LoL,DOTA2,SC2, and even FIFA)

i am willing to bet $100.000 that CSGO will never get "playerbase it needs to be included in big competitions and LANs" lets say half of the CS1.6 community changing to CSGO + half of the CSS community. that would give 20.000 more players then the CS community is made of. how many will follow the competitive scene? remember its a brand new game with good graphics. little kids is gonna be 50% of the community (half of the source community) lets say CSGO would be at IEM probably 2014. it will be a massive FAIL with 10 - 30.000 spectators. that is a lot of spectators but CS 1.6 was removed with 74.000 specs... CSGO will then be removed from IEM and die...

im not from 1.6 or CS:S, and many other genres of gamers are looking to move to CS:GO including : CS:S, 1.6, TF2, CoD4, Battlefield and if you think CS:S sold 30,000,000 copies when the game was "crap" im sure you can work out how much a half decent game will sell, hell i bet half the people on the forum buy it anyway because its pretty cheap.

First of all, how can CS:GO will get playerbase? COD sees 40 million active players monthly so why it'snot in e-sports? It will only attract casual gamers like CS:S. COD,BF3 etc. have amazing graphics. Why would people chose to play CS:GO instead of those games. 1.6 is the only FPS game in esports. It'snot in good level like old days but it'snot death in Europe. It'snot completely death in World too.[ESEA had 20k $ tournament. There will be more K1 Leagues.(The first one had 31.500 dollars) GameGune 2011 is coming up] Many teams are still here. Pro players aren't giving any feedback on steam forums. 10 topic for month. Last gameplay update came 3.5 months ago.

CS:GO is an esports game, CoD is not. Simple as that. 1.6 is on its way out of e-sports and nobody can deny that. Also, K1 league is CS:Online.

CS:GO is designed for competetive 5v5 play, with a clear objective, and well adapted maps. Whereas CoD games' main focus is on public games with many players.

1. A competitive team-shooter isn't restricted on a 5on5 setup. That's just what fits best to CS's gameplay. 2. CS:GO's maps are in the same way "clear objective" and "adapted" as a lot of COD maps. Are you aware of the fact that COD also got a "2 bombspots and 1 bomb"-mode? Have you ever played COD promod? 3. Even though Valve brought up the 5on5 setup as the "new standard", CS was originally made for public gaming (like COD). Also a huge part of the CS community still play on public server and they asked Valve/HPE to get their 8on8 or even 10on10 setup back which they also got now. 4. BF3 is already played in the EPS and the new "Close quarters" is heading in the same direction as CS:GO and COD. The things which made CS a perfect game for competition got lost more and more and CS:GO isn't much more of a competitive shooter than many other new shooters are.
2012-07-05 19:22
That is just your opinion. There are thousands of CoD players that will counter your statement. Does CoD have LAN prize money tournaments? It does. Does CS:GO have casual mode? It does. And no I'm not a CoD player.
2012-07-06 17:28
Do you know CS:Online? It's 1.6 but modified. That's what Counter-Strike is: a game of skill. And this is what CS:GO is: an effort to put anyone who has or should play Counter-Strike into the same game. That's a big enough goal but not a grand enough one to merit the name Counter-Strike 2. even Valve's saying that they'renot making an esport game. And you read what i post. You shouldn't expect more from CS:GO.

CS:GO has no had gameplay changes for like 3-4 months and it is incredibly boring to play. I can only think that ESL is making this cuz of its graphics and he potential a new CS could have but TBH the game is just terrible. almost as bad as CS:Source and its 20 man community.

Wow some flame grilled burgers going down on here....heres the options; Run 1.6 / CS:S / CS: GO all together as I think it wlil be anyway Turn off 1.6 / CS:S and just force CS:GO Just remember a few things also for as long as I can remember from 6.5 beta to the final move to 1.6 every release there was uproar from everyone about the modifications/changes made to the game this will only ever continue that is just the nature of the beast as they say. You create a popular and huge concept like Counter Strike this is what happens. Does anyone remember when the WON Servers finally got switched off? haha everyone still gaming hard until that day Anyway I just play for fun now no longer in a clan/team my friends have real lives so do I infact.
