CS:GO action about to hit SEA


We are about to experience a very intense first quarter of the year as exciting Counter-Strike tournaments make their way into the coming months. Rapture Gaming Network will give you a sneak peak of the CS:GO competitions that are about to kick off.

CyberSeries Asia: February Qualifier (23 February)



The monthly CS:GO tournament organized by CyberSeries Asia continues with another round of qualifiers. The tournament, much like in previous legs, will bring 16 teams together in a single elimination tournament format.

The top 3 teams will win a slot in the grand finals where they will be pitted against top CS:GO teams like Orange E-Sports, Smackdown.DC, TNC and Flash E-Sports.

We were able to catch up with the captain of one of the finalists Carpe Diem, Muhammad “Defty” Abdillah, who said that on top of playing scrims, they also played in the CyaC league with the goal of improving themselves. The team is trying to learn more strategies so that they will be ready when the finals kick off.

SGAMBER Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Tournament (24 February)



Singapore teams are in for a treat as the SGamber CS:GO Tournament hits shores 24 February. The tournament will be held at SGAMBER LLP. It will only feature 16 teams and will play out on a single elimination tournament format.

The champions will receive SGD400 plus five (5) $20 Steam Wallet Code while the runner ups will receive SGD200 and SGD100 respectively.


Gigabyte Mineski Pro-Gaming League Counter-Strike: GO (9 March)

The first leg of the GMPGL Counter-Strike competition will start 9 March. It is open to all teams in the Philippines and the league will boast two divisions: Class A for the contenders and Class S for the top powerhouses.

While the Class S teams will headline the top CS:GO teams in the country, the Class A division will be kept open for any team who think they’re good enough to challenge as the next big contender. All six teams in the Class S have been already seeded and they will be joined subsequently by the top 2 Class A teams.

Top Filipino giants such as TNC, FG and Wolves have already competed in the first leg of the tournament. As the CS:GO community grows, more teams are expected to join the upcoming legs of the GMPGL.




Each leg there will bring a total of Php11,000 prize money to the table. The champions will receive Php5,000 while runner ups get Php3,000.

The tournament will have a points system. The team that receives the most GMPGL points at end of the season will represent the country at the Philippines Asian Cyber Games.

We were able to grab a hold of MSI Evolution Gaming’s Team captain Elgee Gaboy who said that the team has been spending the last two days practicing for CS:GO. Elgee and added that he will only be coaching the team since he cannot commit much time towards CS:GO.

Now is the time for SEA teams to lock horns on the battlefield so stay tuned as Rapture Gaming Network brings you more updates on the Counter-Strike scene.
