gogo Western Wolves!!!! btw, NiP will win I think maybe Hawks can do some damage.coloN first lan with Anexis, exciting tourney :D
2012-12-06 02:49
Finally a final without VeryGames. I'm hoping that Team X will do better than VG.
2012-12-06 02:51
Hope that Hawks/Curse manage to upset NiP, if the two less experienced players keep their nerves thight and perform as they do online, they have quite a chance in the tournament
2012-12-06 02:52
can't see them beating nip but second place is very achievable
2012-12-06 10:54
very close to easiest group possible for nip. cph wolves and western wolves switch and it would have been the easiest group. Group B is very intresting but i think lemondogs wins it and aL 2nd.
2012-12-06 03:03
gogo Curse!

I think the final will be NiP vs Lemondogs.
2012-12-06 03:05
nip - anexis
2012-12-06 14:48
Maybe Lemondogs can make it to the finals, go go Western Wolves and aL!
2012-12-06 03:07
is waver better then downie?
2012-12-06 03:10
Hard to say! it's sad that downie is inactive because he got a huge talent just like waver.. But waver was the best choice to replace downie so they are both really good =)
2012-12-06 04:39
Indeed, they're pretty similar but I'd waver is probably more motivated.
2012-12-06 04:49
I'd say.
2012-12-06 05:15
Indeed indeed, it's gonna be fun and see how this team will get better and better if they stay togather and don't split up!
2012-12-06 05:32
Waver is faaaaar better then downie, noone can deny that.
2012-12-06 09:37
congratz NiP

Nip Sponsors are organizing it that's why there is huge difference between 1st prize and 2nd and 3rd prizes because they know NIP will win :) NICE STRAIT BY XIZT :)
2012-12-06 11:56

Hope that Hawks(Curse) can actually advance to playoffs this time.
2012-12-06 12:13
What a bad scene in CS history bcos of Valve nubs. They changed and made a game which is very stupid and bcos of that many of them are struggling to adjust and perform. CSGO is not a challenging game. crap. Instead of this they could have pushed CS PROMOD. All please quit watching these tourneys, many of us already did as no competition. All switch to dota2. Put valve down xD. So spectators no publicity, no publicity no sponsorers, no sponsorers no teams, no teams then no game xD.
2012-12-06 13:16
yer because when 1.6 game out everybody was an absolute frag demon and every war ended with playing scoring 30-0

I find cs more intresting now bcaus of the new game. In my opinnion Valve should shut down 1.6 & CSS master servers as they did to 1.5 when 1.6 came out :D
2012-12-06 14:25
" All switch to dota2. Put valve down xD." lmaaaooooo
2012-12-07 01:10
