Cph Games prize breakdown unveiled

The organisers behind Copenhagen Games have announced how the prize distribution of the male CS:GO tournament will be made.

The Danish event will run from March 27th to 31st at Øksnehallen, an exhibition centre in the heart of Copenhagen, with a whopping €33,000 up for grabs in the male CS:GO tournament.

This is the second-highest prize purse in the history of the game, falling behind only that of DreamHack Winter 2012, which handed out 300,000 SEK (approximately €35,000).

It has now been revealed that the winner of the tournament will walk away with €16,500, while the losing finalist will have to settle for €8,000. The third-placed side will receive a cheque for €4,000.

Cph Games prize distribution:

1. €16,500
2. €8,000
3. €4,000
4. €2,000
5-6. €750
5-6. €750
7-8. €500
7-8. €500

More info about Cph Games, such as the schedule, format and the prize distribution for the €7,000 female tournament, should be released soon, so stay tuned to HLTV.org for all information about the Danish event.

8.000 EURO for ESC it's also a nice price ;) They're not on NiP's level yet, but who knows what the future will bring ;)
2013-01-30 16:06
Actually the dumbest thing i�ve ever heard. Ok, they are favorites as i stands now, but i think it will be more balanced with time. NiP started playing the game before everyone else did, and that�s the main reason for their early success. My prediction would be teams like ESC, ex-mTw and some of the other scandinavian teams to actually give them a real fight to the very end. I atleast hope so! But againt, that is just my thoughts. On the other hand we got tha NaVIIIIIfanzz x)

i think Asian teams are more focused in cs:O than cs:GO !!
2013-01-30 10:35

And whats the deal with that? cs:O will never be a global thing. The Asian scene is pretty sick to be honest, and they have the talent to put in some great results in GO. Just wrong direction to go.

1 reply
well they know that cs:GO is the new competitive game after 1.6 but they still keep playing lot of events with cs:O, and also there is no Asian team from the 1.6 squad or ONLINE squad switching to cs:GO if i'm not mistaken, because they already got many Asian FPS games just like cs:GO in terms of graphics (CrossFire - Glorious mission - combat arms - sudden attack) !!

Nah he does quite a few other events in SC2 and other parts of the world.

Are you sure about this? Because I'm not sure when he has joined the ESL.

Literally when he joined ESL, he had a couple of events just after he did. I could be wrong, but I'd like to see him cast CPH Games, because last years CSS tournament was so much better with him casting it.

2013-01-29 22:51

Nah its better this way, dont let the top teams get rich, and demotivate the lower teams, everybody got a chance with this prizemoney
2013-01-29 23:49
Actually it's better this way to cover a part of the costs for the top8.

Cu there guys!
2013-01-29 23:00
OMG I just had the best idea! Make 1st place prize money only 1000$ and we won't have to worry about NiP winning everything! Even if they win they still lose!

Nice, nice, but will be there prizes like time ago? I mean, 40K€, 60K€, 35K€,,, cs prizes right now are really low :( Most tournaments have like 10 or 15K€ pool prizes, some years ago those tournaments weren't even played by top teams, sadness :( I want better live for players! Give cash sponsors!!

In all fairness, were you around at the beginning of 1.6 where it took a good 2 years to get such big prizes.
2013-01-30 00:59
the last time cs had a prize pool of 60k was in 2007 and it was 60k for the entire tourney, not just 1st place
2013-01-30 01:16

CPL summer 2003: 60k for 1st place. CPL summer 2006: 90k for 1st place. ... and maaaany more tournaments.

there were many with 30K+ or 40K, this one is not that bad, but there were/are a lot of them with something like 10K€ tournaments, which is sad, I mean sad for the counter strike, caouse it means there is no too many sponsors or don't want to put money in this game
2013-01-30 01:48
Low prizes, 1st and 2nd..... that's my salary.
2013-01-30 01:00
Man.. NiP must be rofling so hard atm :D
2013-01-30 01:18
csgo deaded 1.6 stronk
2013-01-30 04:47
The third-placed side will receive a cheque for €4,000. No way, Zahid Butt pays with cash!
2013-01-30 14:55
16.500 for the first place is far too much considering NiP won everything till now. max 12k would be enough.
2013-02-25 17:29
1 reply
agree...16500 is way too much for the 1st posi....the 5th,6th and 7th position should get more money as it will inspire more teams to participate and motivate them to atleast grab a top 7 finish
2013-02-25 17:53
"The Danish event will run from March 27th to 31st ". If Heaven Media would be amongst the organizers, you'll have to free your agenda between 2 and 9 of april to see the matches after the delay. also, there is a big chance that GOTV wont work or it will be password protected.
