    Default CGS Announces Pro-Am Division

    CGS Announces Pro-Am Division
    by Sara "gypsy" Cameron

    May 19, 2008


    Championship Gaming Series™ (CGS) has just announced the launch of the CGS Pro-Am Division, which will include the addition of two new Pro-Am games for online competition, Valve’s Counter-Strike® 1.6 and Team Fortress® 2. The new CGS Pro-Am Division dramatically expands the opportunities for amateur and professional gamers to participate in CGS competitions.

    CGS Pro-Am will launch in North America and Europe in August 2008, with players competing on CGS game servers, online. The top two CGS Pro-Am finishers in those two games in each region will receive top seeding and travel packages to compete in the Counter-Strike® 1.6 and Team Fortress® 2 showdown during the CGS 2009 North America Combine. The CGS 2009 North America Combine will showcase Counter-Strike® 1.6 and Team Fortress® 2 tournaments with North American and European players competing for a total prize purse of more than $50,000, plus additional prizes.

    “The CGS Pro-Am Division is a critical step in the league’s continuing evolution and the growth of our worldwide audience,” said CGS Commissioner and CEO Andy Reif, “Now amateur players are going to have a chance to step up and play against the very best pros in the world. We are also going to keep expanding the opportunities for gamers to play in CGS by adding more Pro-Am games and more competitions with our partners.”

    “Every gamer wants to see the dream match-ups between their favorite teams,” said Marcus “DJ Wheat” Graham, CGS Senior Producer, Online and internationally-recognized eSports broadcaster. “The CGS Pro-Am Division is going to help make those matches a reality. From a programming perspective, it’ll be fantastic to see CGS pros going head-to-head with other teams showcasing their talent. We’ll also finally see a unification of Counter-Strike players, as CGS pros will have an opportunity to play Counter-Strike 1.6.”

    More information, details, and rules will be available soon at thecgs.com. Registration for the CGS Pro-Am Division commences in July, 2008.

    This is wht the main page says...

    The Season Begins! »———————————————————————
    The Championship Gaming Series Pro-Am Division is your opportunity to play with (and against) the pros. CGS players are some of the world's elite gaming athletes and they are ready to take on all comers, including a team comprised of you and your friends.
    Game play has started! Registration for the inaugural season is closed, but that just means the season has begun. During the initial campaign, starting September 10th, gamers from across North America put their skills to the test as the fully-registered teams compete for honor, for fun, and for their share of over $40,000.00 in prizes and the first Pro-Am championship.

    Teams will battle in cyberspace over the course of two months in three separate games: Counter-Strike 1.6, Counter-Strike: Source, and Team Fortress 2. After that, the best teams in each game head to the playoffs to determine who gets the glory, fame, and fortune. The playoffs begin November 7th.

    If you didn‘t register in time for the first season, don‘t fret. There will be plenty of opportunities to play down the road. For more information on upcoming seasons sign up now for the Pro-Am newsletters.
