New Counter-Strike Tournaments Are Prepared for 2020 in Argentina


In Latin America, there are games that have several professional competitions managed by the same videogame developer. Riot Games supports the League of Legends scene with its own administration, while games like Counter-Strike work with third parties, but it does not keep track of the work they do, so many competitions in our country aspire to be professional, but still, They keep amateur dyes.

In Argentina, although League of Legends is one of the most played games with Fortnite, in terms of visualization and attraction Counter-Strike takes the lead. Valve FPS has a great tradition in our country and is the most popular in any videogames and esports fair. In the last Argentina Game Show, the final between 9z and Malvinas Gaming Game Season filled the stands and filled the space full of fans who saw the team of Captain Guillermo “Guishorro” Areco lifts the competition trophy, after being eliminated at the opening

Great surprises are expected for this title next year. According to reliable sources, both the Professional Video Games League (LVP) and an important international organizer are working on a possible entry to Argentina with professional Counter-Strike skills. The entry of these organizers is a new way of working for the teams. In League of Legends, where the LVP held the grand final between 9z against Isurus Gaming at the Sanitary Works Stadium, teams must be established as companies in the country and all players are requested to have contracts, to give a legal framework not only to the competition but to the work of the teams. In addition, quotas usually belong to the team. It is not entered by qualifiers, but by the presentation of a sustainable economic plan where teams must demonstrate economic solvency and a work plan.

On the side of the international organizer, who held several important tournaments in Brazil, she will have an individual Latin American league, where the champions of each league would face each other in a great Latin final. In the same way, as with the LVP, teams must work on a long-term plan that demonstrates the work to be done throughout 2020.

These types of leagues are established in different countries, the main example of the LVP being its CS: GO league in Spain, where teams are not classified but are accepted based on their work plans and if they can effectively be maintained. One of the participating teams was the Spanish x6tence that features the Argentines Jonathan “JonY BoY” Muñoz, Nicolás “NikoM” Miozzi, Matías “Tutehen” Canale, Tomás “tomi” Guardia and the Spanish Moris “OMG” Marquez-Cid. In Brazil, two leagues with the same format debuted: the BBL e-Sports Brasileirao and the CBCS, where the teams were invited and had some degree of exclusivity in terms of participation in other leagues. Internationally, the ESL Pro League and the Blast Pro Series circuit maintain a similar work style.

The Argentine Counter-Strike scene, despite its popularity, has many informalities. To date, there are few teams that provide contracts to their players, the majority being word agreements. This is mainly due to the fact that the constitution of an organization becomes an expensive process if there are no brands that support investment, one of the main problems of a country where video games are bastarded and associated with the lack of physical activity and social abstraction. With the arrival of both leagues and the deepening of other games in Argentina and Latin America, the formalization of electronic sports and the creation of a stable platform are proposed where investments can help teams grow and get in tune with the rest region of.
