GameGune 2012 Coverage: Day One



The image GameGune 2012 (Bilbao, Spain) Counter-Strike 1.6 tournament with 22 500€ prize pool is now starting and today we will see the first groupstage matches of all 24 participants including image Natus Vincere. While this time our boys arrived to Bilbao, Spain without our coverage writer, this does not mean we will not have some exclusive content to provide.

Despite last years' edition, GameGune 2012 tournament format has changed. Now 24 competing teams will be divided into 6 groups per 4 teams each. The groupstage will be played as Double Elimination with bo1 format. Play-off will be played in bo3 format with each round random draw. You can see the groupstage seedings in the expanded newsfeed.
