WCG Pan-Am with 100%, Brasil, UMX

WCG Pan-American Championship 2012 will be held on August 24-26 in Santiago, Chile with the American, Brazilian and Canadian representatives announced so far in Counter-Strike 1.6.

Although World Cyber Games 2012 will only feature a promotional CS: Online tournament at the world finals in China, the Pan-American games will once again host a tournament in Counter-Strike 1.6.

The past two events have been won by Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's crew under the names of compLexity and mandic. This time the squad will be donning the name of Brasil Gaming, hoping to right things after a disappointing showing at DreamHack Summer. Lincoln "fnx" Lau announced the team's attendance on his Facebook page.

Last season's ESEA Invite finals were supposed to be the qualifier for WCG Pan-Am for the US, but due to a mostly Canadian team winning and both Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert and Braxton "swag" Pierce parting ways with the team, UMX Gaming has received the spot instead.

Interestingly enough, both Gilbert and Pierce will be attending WCG Pan-Am, but playing for UMX Gaming whose starters Kyle "flowsicK" Mendez and last season's stand-in Paul "pauLy" Guerboyan will not be attending. This will be Pierce's first international tournament.

The Canadian team is centered around two time ESEA champions Kory "semphis" Friesen and Brennan "ele1Nt" Webster with long time Canadian representative Garett "Grt" Bambrough being the third known player. The team also features Friesen's friend Ryan "lars" Larsen and a WCG admin.

WCG has not yet published much information about its Pan-America event but we will do our best to provide coverage from the tournament as the Brazilians will be looking to win their third championship in a row.

Very Nice

I like the mention ... "and a WCG Admin." P.S.: Most of the information you need is on WCG Chile website: wcgchile.com/home/noticias/noticia.php?i.. Otherwise try to e-mail them and I might even be able to get them to give you access for HTLVs. @lurppis
2012-08-17 08:56
Hltvs that would be really really good! Thx
2012-08-17 09:42
thanks for the link, sent them an email. if you can help hook up HLTVs for the public when you're at the event let me know, semphis/ele1nt/grt know how to contact me as does almost everyone on umx

2012-08-17 15:10
we have no idea. nak/btt instead of bit/shemp would be the best choice
2012-08-17 19:22
nak/btt instead of shemp? are you kidding?
2012-08-17 23:08
If I'm not mistaken, it's PlayArt's spot(FalleN's team), Brasil.AMD is just sponsoring them for this tournament

They probably got knocked out of the qualification for it.
2012-08-17 22:07
they didn't participate in the qualy because they are "confronted" with the host, LocalStrike

Ultimax Gaming with n0thing and swag plus the orinial members: Kiko, sobo and Stenoo are going to beat the sht outta the game. I was wondering why swag was on the umx roster on ESEA, now I know lol.
2012-08-18 05:46
swag, kiko and sobo were former teammates and used the end tag -iwnl- (i will not lose) even when not playing together, so i assume they're friends. throw on top max effort (now area 51) said they don't plan to put effort into 1.6 (sgares said this on esea forum as the reason why n0thing left), and i imagine he'd rather play with closer friends than stay on that team
2012-08-18 17:46
Ya probably, also becauze swag is unable to play in the CS:GO tournament due his age and Area 51 is for CS:GO
2012-08-18 19:24
