PGS announces €5,000 CS:GO tourney

The ProGamerSeries (PGS) organisers have announced that they will also be running a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament with €5,000 up for grabs.

The Portuguese event has caught the eye of the 1.6 community as it may be one of the last opportunities to see the top teams lock horns in this game before they switch to CS:GO.

Natus Vincere, fnatic and Anexis are some of the teams who will be in attendance in the 1.6 tournament, which will hand out a whopping €15,000.

Following the announcement that the prize purse for the Starcraft II competition had been decreased due to the fact that it fell on the same days as other events, the PGS organisation has now put together €5,000 for a CS:GO tournament.

The competition, called PGS MSI CS:GO, will be limited to eight teams, with the prize distribution as follows:

1. €3,000
2. €1,350
3. €650

Teams who wish to attend this event can contact the organisers here. Stay tuned to HLTV.org for all the information about PGS, which will take place from October 11-14 at Exponor, in the city of Oporto.

True that.
2012-09-17 23:24
i havent bothered to locate their site or anything like that. not really sure why im flamed. i asked a simple question and i motivated my question with my last sentence. that was all. im happy to be proven wrong. its just that there is (or was, more like) events out there offering $$$ and then never paying it out, even big ones that on the outside have presented big sponsors etc. i think it's just healthy to be sceptical when it comes to a new event (this might be an old portuguese event but they've never hosted a big european tournament like this as far as i know)

But PGS has held events before, not on a european level, but in local level. So they deserve a bit more of trust. Also, IGF offered way more money lol.
