8 world-beating teams, 14 exciting playoff matches, 80 top-class players = 140 unique ineye demos. We've just uploaded all ineye demos of the Global Challenge Dubai Playoffs.
A lot of good players like ArcadioN from TEAM p00nhandlers or the Ukrainian crew of DTS.chatrix.old participated in the group stage but didn't reach the playoffs. There were some very interesting games like SK Gaming vs. fnatic as well. Since we don't have the time to upload all ineye demos of the Group Stage, leave a comment which demo you want to see and we will provide it as soon as possible.
Back from Dubai we've just uploaded all HLTV demos of the Intel Extreme Masters III Global Challenge Dubai group stage and playoffs. Have fun if you want to watch a match you missed or want to see again. Tomorrow we will add a lot of ineye demos, but the mouz ineyes of the Grand Final are already disposable.
They did it! The reigning champion of the Intel Extreme Masters wins the Global Challenge Dubai. mousesports wins against ESC ICY BOX in the final. A few month ago Kapio stated at a German Intel Friday Night Game that his team is the worlds best on de_dust2. Today they proved it!
As the tournament is almost over we have to think about the best indiviudal perfomance of this tournament? So it's on you! What do you think? Was cyx's AWP unbeatable or LUq's clutch play? Did Doomsder's Bambi mousepad convince you? It's up to you. Write your Most Valuable Player of Dubai into the comments.
The first map is over and mousesports is still in the game as they won it. It was an impressive frag show by mouz, especially cyx' AWP shots rocked the boat. ESC ICY BOX didn't found the right instrument yet. But since both teams chosed dust2 again we will see if they did now.
After a very equal first half mousesports just owned sdasdasdasd as defender on de_inferno. Ruuit and his colleagues were no match for the German mice. Kapio's team will now have the chance to take revenge in the Grand Final of the Intel Extreme Masters III Global Challenge Dubai as they are playing ESC ICY BOX, which knocked them to the Lower Bracket yesterday.
With an impressive T side on de_nuke sdasdasdasd is marching further. Since ESC ICY BOX knocked them to the Lower Bracket nobody could stop the Finish, neither the Swedish powerhouses fnatic and SK nor mTw int.. Now it is on mousesports to thwart contE's team. The LB Final will start as soon as Kapio, tixo, gore, cyx and gob b have prepared at the stage.
The Lower Bracket round 3 starts in a few minutes. mTw int. and sdasdasdasd will compete to advance to the Lower Bracket final. The loser receives $4,000, but the winner keeps the chance to win this tournament and $25,000! Watch it live on ESL TV.
European Mainround match live in Dubai: ATS.dk vs. MYM
Warm-up exercise for the Polish
Since both teams participated this week at Global Challenge Dubai they didn't have the time to hold their Intel Extreme Masters Main Round match. So we've decided that they can play in the tournament area here in Dubai. TEAM p00nhandlers won the first map 16:8 on de_inferno, the second one will be de_nuke. Seems like MYM isn't awake yet.
As you might have noticed we've had a few problems with the Counter-Strike 1.6 update yesterday. There was a possibility that your CS would crash, just as we've seen on stage or ESL TV. Today HLTV.org reported that Valve released a new update and fixed the problems. Let's hope that we stay spared for today.
In an absolutely fantastic match ESC ICY BOX knocked mousesports to the Lower Bracket final. Both teams were very equal and it were mainly the saved weapons which brought the victory to the Polish players. Now there are only three matches left to decide who the biggest part of the $50,000 prize money. Stay tuned and watch everything live on our Coverage page or on ESL TV!
What a game! sdasdasdasd outplayed both Swedish powerhouses in a row. The winners of Los Angeles and Montreal aren't in the tournament anymore. So we will definitely see a new winner in Dubai. Ex-Roccat will face mTw int. tomorrow at 13:30 CEST. The last match for today will be the winner bracket final mouz vs. MYM starting in 25 minutes.
