One of the most expected gaming event in the planet called DreamHack Winter, which takes place between 28th of November to 1st of December, have released a teaser video to pump up some more excitement to everyone who are eagerly waiting to make it this years edition.
One of the most expected gaming event in the planet called DreamHack Winter 2013 is taking place at the Elmia Fair in Jönköping, Sweden. The event will be held between 28th of November and the 1st of December. There is no such gamer who could resist to go to this event and I can assure that no gaming enthusiast is going to want to miss out this years event after such of a trailer teaser.
The other factor which makes people go there and see it for themselves is the enormous prizepool for the CS:GO that haven't been featured as big as this one so far: In total of $250,000! A figure that was partly raised by Valve's Arms Deal aswell.
After very intense final game between the freshly signed SK Gaming CS:GO team and Team VeryGames on the best-of-three game system, the French team came on top.
As we were all witnessing very intense and insane gameplay by the two finalists of the Beat It European qualifier teams. Team VERYGAMES managed to win the first map against SK Gaming with the result of 19-17. However, SK didn't leave it just like that and managed to make their way back to a tie situation by defeating VeryGames in the overtime with the same score of 19-17. Both maps were overtimed, but as soon as de_inferno went on, VeryGames took a long lead and managed to secure their win already on the first side of the map. Our boys struggled hard to make the gap smaller and tie it up but VG didn't leave them a chance to make any progress towards to it and they kept pushing onto SK really hard until the very end.
Still though, our own boys, SK Gaming managed to proceed their way up to the Beat It finals in China and we can expect some big and great results from them further on in these upcoming few months.
Here are the results of the MSI Beat It European qualifier top 3

Operation Bravo, the latest collection of top-rated community maps, is now live in CS:GO. Buying a pass will get you unlimited access to a map group of eight top-voted Workshop Maps playable in casual, deathmatch and—for the first time—competitive mode. The map group consists of seven new maps (Agency, Ali, Cache, Chinatown, Gwalior, Ruins and Siege), as well as a returning favorite (Seaside) that we’re eager to try out as a competitive map.
Like with Operation Payback, buying a pass to Bravo gets you an exclusive upgradable Challenge Coin. This time around, though, the coin will double as an operational scorecard that’ll let you keep a complete record of your stats from all Official Competitive Matches for the duration of Bravo.
Another addition to this Operation: weapon finishes. We’re shipping 31 new finishes as part of two all-new weapon collections with this op—one available exclusively as individual all-map weapon drops to Bravo pass-holders, and the other available to everybody as part of the Bravo weapon case, also available through timed all-map drops. (Pass-buyers will get Bravo case drops in addition to regular drops.)
Check out the Operation Bravo page for more information, or just launch CS:GO, grab a pass and get in on the action.

Mariusz "Loord" Cybulski, also known as former ESC Gaming member, has announced his decision to assemble the new Global Offensive team which also means his returning actively to the gaming scene.
He have now assembled a team that looks seriously capable of doing some great job and massive damage at home and abroad aswell, although he have mentioned before that he was looking for a team with different goals. The team is assembled also along with Krystian "uszy" Siekański, who is part of Poland's European Championship lineup, and Jacek "minise" Jeziak, former player of ALSEN and GF-Gaming.
These last two names, Piotr "peet" Ćwikliński and Bartosz "Hyper" Wolny, were both trying out for ESC Gaming in recent weeks but still decided to jump into the shoes of the new Polish squad.
This is how Piotr "peet" Ćwikliński commented the whole situation:
Here is the new Polish CS:GO team roster:
Mariusz "Loord" Cybulski

The team I interviewed earlier in September for SK Gaming have kept their promise with the fresh results and also gained the title of the top CS:GO team throughout the Baltics.
The TECHLABS Baltics CS:GO Cup took place online and it was held between 18th to 20th of September and was organised by Skillz.lv community. The prizepool was small, $1500, but it was still worth fighting for.
The first day was played with the Best-of-one system which finally picked out the teams who could be playing at the next day of the event. First day was hard for some of the teams since they didn't advance up to the second day of the cup.
Second day was way promising. By playing the Best-of-three system they managed to sort out the best teams of the tournament. There teams who advanced closer to the finals started the day with flatout 2-0 wins over their enemies and managed to get straight on to the next round of the tournament. By the end of the second day when koxx.lv and DeNova.lt got their chances in the bronze placement game, the last two teams, MayaM and DeNova had the chance to challenge eachother in the finals.
Third day was the day to see which is the best of them all and as the results show us, we have our top three sorted out. Third place went to koxx.lv, second place went to DeNova and the winners turned out to be MayaM.
This is what Hendrik "cheti" Vallimägi had to say about this briefly:
These are the final results of TECHLABS Baltics CS:GO Cup:
1. MayaM - $750
2. DeNova - $450
3. koxx.lv - $300
