    Playoff ineye demos 28.10.2008 14:37    
  140 ineyes available

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 1716030 from Anonymous 2010 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.

  mousesport's youngster interviewed

Shortly after mousesports defeated AGAiN cyx talked to SK's Carmac. The bigger part of the spectators agree on he was the best player in the whole tournament. Watch a pretty speachless cyx only minutes after they won Dubai.

In an additional interview Neo had a misgiving when he stated "Mouz were the toughest so far" befor they played the Grand Final.

  mouz overpowers MYM at first map

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. AGAiN didn't found the right instrument yet. But since both teams chosed dust2 again we will see if they did now.

    mouz advances to final - facing MYM 24.10.2008 16:52    
  Nope, Gameplay couldn't

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 AGAiN, which knocked them to the Lower Bracket yesterday.

With an impressive T side on de_nuke sdasdasdasd is marching further. Since AGAiN 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.

    European Mainround match live in Dubai: ATS.dk vs. MYM 24.10.2008 13:33    
  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. Anonymous 2010 won the first map 16:8 on de_inferno, the second one will be de_nuke. Seems like MYM isn't awake yet.

  Thank you Valve!

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.
