We've got sweet news for you! Ben Nichol a.k.a. MrBitter will cross the pond and move to Germany, joining our team for exciting new projects to come. He got a lot experience being one of the most popular StarCraft II casters, has his show "12 weeks with the pros" and commentated the North American StarLeague. From now on he will be a fulltime caster for our upcoming tournaments.
The new season of Intel Extreme Masters will feature two new maps. We've decided to add de_forge and de_mirage to the Counter-Strike 1.6 map pool. It's the first addition to Counter-Strike, since we've replaced de_cbble for de_tuscan back in season 3. This will revitalize Counter-Strike 1.6 and its greyed, rusted five maps.
