Dunno what to say about this one
dont get why the price is divided in 8... makes absolutely no sense at all
I think all the subtop teams are very happy with it.
Im only like 20 mins away, but

1. I don't play cod4 competitively
2. I have two exams that day :<
On a Satuday and Sunday? :D
well two on Saturday D:
Nice! Held at 17-18 though :)
tosspot + dates = drama
Nice, are the big teams attending?
No Fatgames
ur a comic genius
Hope we can find a suitable standin for revoltz :o
More money \o/

Best of luck to those who get chance to attend.
Birmingham, dirty northern area. >:E
but gl anyone who goes for it.
does this point in the direction of COD4 becoming a official tournament game for the cgs?
[sarcasm] of course not, the fact that its organized by the CGS just means CGS admins are bored! [/sarcasm]
not sure I like that idea tbh :X
the sarcasm wasn't really necessary
the official game for cgs is most likely to be q3 (for 1v1 at least) according to mr wheat

a fact that makes me the happiest person on earth atm :D
Well CGS won't be adding any games without replacing an existing one (this year), and they don't have any duel based FPS to replace. I also doubt they will drop CSS in favor of coD4 but who knows...
cu there without doubt.
