HLTV.org live from Valencia

September 21st, 2012 13:01

The Spanish stop on the DreamHack calendar is just hours away from starting, and we at HLTV.org are already comfortably set up in the press room to bring you all the info.

DreamHack Valencia is the first major international event embracing Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, with the winners earning themselves a spot at the world finals in Sweden, in November, on top of a €2,500 cheque.

The first match, between x6tence and bemyFRAG, will kick off only at 17:00, which is why no teams have so far arrived at Feria Valencia, where the event is taking place.

However, the tournament area is already set up and the first BYOC attendees are making their way into the building.

Below you can find some of the first photos that we have taken at DreamHack Valencia. The complete gallery can be seen here.

Stay tuned to HLTV.org for full coverage of DreamHack Valencia.

If NiP or VeryGames win, do they take the Spanish teams spot? Why is that allowed if so?
2012-09-21 13:26
Wait what?

Ah okay. Just seems a bit strange, as in all other sports in the world, it's done by country. Along with ESL too.

2012-09-21 13:44

Ah ok, just didn't seem like there were enough qualifiers to warrant a 'spot' for a CSGO tournament :D I thought they'd just invite europes best
2012-09-21 14:15
Damn those cases look nice!

anyone have a link for the stream?
2012-09-21 14:19
would love to see interwievs with for example, friberg, fifflaren, xizt and any VG player.
2012-09-21 14:19
I remember that times when almost everyone wrote on forum something like :"omfg cs:go it's shit,1.6 forever...etc." now when i see topics about this shitty game comments much more positive
2012-09-21 14:29
those idiots are relegated to just writing badly written blogs where they pretend to write something else but always end up with how csgo is awful
2012-09-21 14:35
Thanks for pointing out the obvious lack of interest you have in the game. I feel better for it.
