Sweden defended their title in CS 1.6
22.08.2010 15:07
The only champion who keeps the trophy!

It was not the match that the whole audience has waited for here at the gamescom in Hall 7. The ASUS ENC Finals 2010 in Counter-Strike 1.6 showed us a very strong reigning champion and a challenger with some kind of bad day.

Sweden dominated both maps of this finals and won very easy as it seams. Even if the stars like cArn, forest or all the SK players stayed at home the so called "b team" of Sweden didn't gave Ukraine the slightest chance to win today.

The scores of Sweden [2:0] Ukraine

de_inferno: Sweden [16:03] Ukraine
de_train: Sweden [16:06] Ukraine

Final standing: Counter-Strike 1.6

1st: Sweden (6,000 Euro)
2nd: Ukraine (3,00 Euro)
3rd: Denmark (2,000 Euro)
4th: Russia (1,200 Euro)

Congratulations to Sweden!

Denmark scores the third place
22.08.2010 12:48
A thrilling 3 map fight in the third place decider

This match was like an awesome roller-coaster! Russia was awake from the very first second and gave Denmark not the slightest bit of a chance on de_dust2. Only 2 rounds were book for the Dens when Russia hit the 16 rounds.

But when de_train was on and Russia was playing on like on de_dust2, Denmark finally awoke and turned the whole match around. After winning de_train, de_tuscan became a real thriller with Denmark winning with 16:14!

The scores of Russia [1:2] Denmark

de_dust2: Russia [16:02] Denmark
de_train: Russia [10:16] Denmark
de_tuscan: Russia [14:16] Denmark

In a few minutes the grand final of Sweden vs. Ukraine will start. Stay tuned!

Who's gonna be the champ? markeloff or GeT_Right?

Ukraine just won the eastern European semi final. On three very tensed maps the team of Markeloff, Edward and co. had to show some of their a-play. After winning de_inferno and losing de_dust2 the Ukrainians got 5 T rounds on de_train and brought this victory home as CT by only losing one round on that side.

The scores of Ukraine [2:1] Russia

de_inferno: Ukraine [16:10] Russia
de_dust2: Ukraine [12:16] Russia
de_train: Ukraine [16:11] Russia

21.08.2010 12:30
2:0 vs. Denmark brings Sweden close to the trophy

What a game in the early morning! Both Sweden and Denmark gave us an awesome show and made the crowd constantly grow. On both maps the team split the halfs to rounds in a row for one of the teams. In the end Sweden won the match on two maps but both were very, very tight.

The scores of Sweden [2:0] Denmark

de_tuscan: Sweden [16:14] Denmark
de_train: Sweden [16:12] Denmark

Now we are waiting for the match of Russia vs. Ukraine to determine the opponent for Sweden in the grand final.

Saturday at gamescom: The visitor overkill
21.08.2010 11:36
The ASUS ENC Finals 2010 area is packed!

It's only quarter past 11 in the morning. Every 5-10 seconds you hear an "A" and "SUS" shouted by the crowed that gathered right in front of the ASUS Extreme Overclocking Stage, almost combining to some kind of brand name you might know. The shoutcast of the CS 1.6 game between Sweden and Denmark is pumping to your ears. Everything is noisy but absolutely awesome and everybody is having fun. That's the feeling you get at the ASUS booth in Hall 7. You are more than just welcome!

20.08.2010 19:29
One of the biggest CS:S scenes finally got their trophy

In an exciting match between United Kingdom and Denmark the British players showed all their skills and got the trophy a whole scene has been longing for. On de_dust2 and de_nuke they dominated the match and only showed some weaknesses but always cam back when the rounds became important.

France claims 3rd place
20.08.2010 16:24
2:0 for the French - Germany 4th again

The "Source-Nation" does not leave the ASUS ENC Finals 2010 on the last position. France just won their match versus Germany on two maps so the reigning champion comes out last at this finals here at gamescom. Even a cheering audience couldn't stop this from happening. RegnaM and his teammates made their stay here in Germany a bit better after yesterdays loss.

The scores: France [2:0] Germany

de_dust2: France [16:08] Germany
de_nuke: France [16:04] Germany

Now we are waiting for the players to set up for the last match of the day which is the grand final of this years ASUS ENC Finals in Counter-Strike:Source. Enjoy the show!

Bulgaria is the new FIFA champion
20.08.2010 15:13
Only one goal decided the match - Congratulations Bulgaria!

A long and hard match was decided by only one single goal not shot by styla. Bulgaria was the team that defend the last running match at the same score for quite while and so secured the title with a very tight 7:5. After the match, Germany protested that Bulgaria did time play in this match.

After watching the replay for a few times and consulting one of our most experienced admins the admin team here at gamescom decided that there was a minor time play, but that it was too minor to give a defwin to Germany. So Bulgaria is the new champion in FIFA and Germany lost the second match at the ASUS ENC Finals ever.

Final standings:

1st: Bulgaria (4,000 Euro)
2nd: Germany (2,000 Euro)
3rd: Romania (1,500 Euro)
4th: Ukraine (1,000 Euro)

Congratulations to Bulgaria!

Romania just won the 3rd place
20.08.2010 11:44
By a very late goal Romania did it!

What a game we saw only seconds ago! Ukraine almost looked like the winner of the 3rd place decider but Romania stroke back. With a goal in the last few seconds of the game Romania won the last submatch and made the expected 6:6, which would have gone to Ukraine by goals, to a 7:5 in their favour.

Now we will start the grand final soon with Germany facing Bulgaria.

Denmark first team in CS:S finale
19.08.2010 17:16
Beating the favourite on two maps

Our booth nearly bursted during the first CS:S match here at gamescom. Both France and Denmark did a great job and made de_nuke a thriller to watch. 16:13 was the result when Denmark found their a game as Terrorists and got a good run. On de_train it looked like a even clearer result when Denmark only gave away 1 round for a long time. But in the end France could get 3 T-round, the pistol and made the game more interesting again. But Denmark found back into the game and got all 4 T-rounds they needed.

Semi Final #1: Denmark vs. France
de_nuke: Denmark [16:13] France
de_train: Denmark [16:07] France

Now we are just waiting a few more minutes to see who will win the second semi between Germany and the United Kingdom. Stay tuned!

19.08.2010 17:05
Technical difficulties block streaming

We are very sorry for all CS:S fans out their who have waited for the first match to start.

Update #1: We have had a visit of our provider here at gamescom who thought to have found the problem.

We are doing our best and will give you more information as soon as possible.

Germany 8:4 Ukraine
19.08.2010 14:13

The second semi final will follow shortly and with Jens Nowotny, former player of Germany's football team, on their side they hope to keep the score for Germany in ASUS ENC the same as last year, where they can out on top.
