DreamHack add de_forge

Today we are happy to announce a cooperation between ESL, e-Stars Seoul, DreamHack and ESWC. In the upcoming 2011 events of these organizations all organisations will use the same map pool with seven maps.

The results of this will be the addition of de_forge to the DreamHack 2011 map pool, as DreamHack already added de_mirage for DreamHack Winter 2010 and DreamHack Summer 2011. Following maps will be used in the upcoming CS tournament, DreamHack MSI Beat IT Championship at DreamHack Winter 2011 24-27 november. DreamHack will announce more detailed information about the CS tournament and qualifiers in the upcoming weeks.

This results in the following map pool:
- de_dust2
- de_inferno
- de_nuke
- de_train
- de_tuscan
- de_mirage
- de_forge

Statement Camille Versteeg, head of competitions ESWC:
“For years we have been seeing the same Counter-Strike 1.6 maps over and over again. In the past it was impossible to add a single map because teams would not train them if only one event would use it during the tournament. Now with this initiative we hope that teams are able to practice and play some new maps. I personally hope that other organizations out there are willing to follow our initiative.”

Statement Alexander Nehr, Tournament Director CS1.6 ESL
“Today we would like to announce our new Counter-Strike 1.6 mappool for the Intel Extreme Masters 2011/2012 season. We are really happy that we don’t do this step alone but in cooperation with ESWC, DreamHack and eStars Seoul. With the help of several professional teams we all together agreed on this new mappool for our upcoming tournaments and I hope that there will be some more cooperations in the future. We are all competitors but we still need to work together to help our beloved eSports.”

Statement Tomas Hermansson, Head of Esports, DreamHack:
“Counter-Strike 1.6 is still the most popular game at DreamHack festivals, qualifiers and events. Last year we started to use de_mirage to give the DreamHack tournament some extra flavour – now we’re very proud to team up with ESWC, ESL and eStars Seoul to announce the official map pool for the upcoming DreamHack MSI Beat IT Championship at DreamHack Winter 2011. This kind of co-operation is important for the future growth of eSports.”

We would like to thank all teams and tournament organizations that helped us do this.

    Now you just need to add a good map (mirage is good, but forge…… srsly, it’s so uneven)

Get ready for Dreamhack
