CS1.6 gets de_mirage and de_forge
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.
This is a collective decision of ESWC, eStars Seoul, Dreamhack and ESL. All of these organsations will use de_mirage and de_forge in their upcoming tournaments, to establish them as good and as fast as possible in the international Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. Furthermore several professional teams from around the world were involved, to assure that the new maps meet the requirements of competitive play.
New Counter-Strike 1.6 Mappool
"For years we have been seeing the same Counter-Strike 1.6 maps over and over again. In the past it was impossible to add a single map because teams would not train them if only one event would use it during the tournament. Now with this initiative we hope that teams are able to practice and play some new maps. I personally hope that other organizations out there are willing to follow our initiative."
We hope you will enjoy both new maps in our upcoming CS1.6 tournaments.
