The Championship Gaming Series, founded in 2007 to be the chief competitor to Major League Gaming, has announced that they will be shutting down operations effective immediately.
LOL what will DJwheat do next?
but I will say that it wasn't very fun too watch. Black Mumbo was the bomb,, but all the other competitors and games were just boring to watch. Soccer in real life sucks too watch, why would they put that in the championship gaming series? Also,, they played counter strike, which is a good game in its own right, but it isn't as mainstream as games like Halo or COD. Unreal Tournament would have been a better choice even. The only way a company like this could make it is if they had mainstream games to compete in. Sh*t, even Mario Cart and Smash bros would be better choices to have in the championships.
The scoring system was horribly flawed. CS was way too significant and made the games like Fifa look like filler material. Also it was xbox 360 games then CS for the PC...why split platforms then give the 1 PC game the most points?
Its a good game,, but COD4 would have been alot more exciting. You are obviously a pc guy. Since you wanna go there with it,, why don't they get a Total War champion ship? If your gonna throw a gaming championship, then go big. People like you are the reasons why compies like this go out of business. You have to think big or gtfo.
Counter Strike FOREVER!!! Also, Resistance 2...
COD4 is way to noobish. It doesn't even take that much skills to kill a person. It's just spray and most of the bullets will hit him with barely any recoil.
feel bad for participants but it was an annoying thing to watch, I'm not sure gaming is ready for such an orchestrated event.
I like to watch it from time to time but I feel embarrassed just to watch it. It's the way they do it. Kinda to geeky.
It's way more fun to actually be playing the games than to sit and watch'em. And i could imagine all the money that was spent to produce these events. Ahh well, you win some and you lose some
Championship Gaming Series?????? What? Anyway all the hype is with MLG. They even air Halo 3 mlg tournaments on ESPN.
I know how crazy is that...i remember seeing my first episode and i was like...what does this have anything to do with sports...it was so awkward to see it inbetween basketball and baseball...
