Crucial Cup_2016_01


It has been announced that the CS: GO portion of the Crucial Cup has been cancelled due to a “numbers game”.

The full announcement is as follows:

Good morning everyone. It has been a hectic week of negotiation and administration. We have decided to drop CS:GO from the Crucial Cup roster purely because there are too many other events that clashes with the calendar and not enough interest shown in our cup.
I know that most of you might have been keen to play in our cup, but its a numbers game. We simply can’t host a tournament with so little interest and so many other competitions running at the same time.
There are more Crucial Cups coming up in the future where we will try and work around other tournament calendars to find a gap where more teams could be available to play and compete, and hopefully for some bigger prizes too!
I want to thank all of you that have entered for the support shown, I will understand if you are dissapointed or frustrated, it was a hard call to make and I can only hope that you understand why the decision has been made.
Best of luck in all/any of the other cups and tournaments that your teams are competing in.
Best Regards
Stephen de Witt
