Counter-Strike Source has been the main centre of attention with the GotGames State of Origin, CG finals and the OGC NZ Invite Grand Final.
Over at the OGC NZ Invite League we saw Boneshot taking on ix in the Grand Final. ix, arguably the best in the league, are on a hot streak winning their last seven games. Boneshot on the other hand have lost once, so they'll need to put that out of their heads when they take it to de_train for the first map.
The team line-ups:
Kow jezR Meat Happyfeet Equinox
Supertech Grudge Marcuslol Parabola Hangman
We have just seen the CG Season come to an end. It was a fantastic season, and there is still much more amazing action set to come out of CG with the Invite league and a few other suprises coming your way!
Syndicate took on Mad.Kentz in the Semi final on Tuscan. It was a great much with a few lols and definately worth a listen. Kitfox did an awesome job covering this match!
Team Forbidden take on Hype Gaming in the other Semi Final as Kitfox and Dejavu call the action LIVE from the back streets of Tuscan.
The CGo GRAND FINAL is upon us with Mad Kents taking on Hype Gaming!Tune in as Pandan and Boomser call the shots in this fight for the grand final game! The demo can be found here (once its up): http://www.cybergamer.com.au/files/pc/#demos-css
CGi World At War featured a one sided map mp_airfield, highlighted when teams don't turn up with a full complement of players, but still some great action.
CyberCore vs, Nova
Rampage is all that can be said, especially when you don't turn up with the full complement on a map that is as biased as Airfield. You're basically stuffed.
clockdoctors vs. XG
Airfeild hosted what was sure to be a good match with the favourites XG looking to pick up another win, while the clockdoctors were looking to pick up their first!!!!
Qlimax Crew vs. Rhythm
QMX take on an understrength Rhythm on Airfield in this round of CGi. QMX the clear favourites go on a killing spree and position themselves on the top of the league.
Top of the table GameArena action went crazy as the top placed Axios had defend the attack from we hate cheats - a massive game ensued that went right down to the wire.
Left 4 Dead's 2nd Semi Final was played and the action was Left 4 Dead at it's finest as the Square Brackets (  ) took on Quattro for the last final berth.
Cybergamer CoD4 saw a top of the ladder clash between Existence and Qlimax Crew. Existence were looking to pick up the 4th spot so they could have another go at the top of the ladder. District was the site of the affair.
Premium Gamer Quake Live Pro-Am #1 has this one last game to go, the Grand Final. Tonite we will crown the contender and see who’s the pretender.
