About a month ago I joined the management of Champions eSports Association (CEA). That’s a professional gaming organisation, formerly known as mysod.nl (Surrender or Die). The main focus of the organisation is to take professional gaming to the next level. I’ve already blogged some on the gaming community and it’s shift toward commercialization and professionality.
In CEA I find that all necessary ingredients are available to make something nice out of it all: the number one Counter-Strike clan (with Crimson, m!nto, mAdb-, FragM, r0y and MasterMe) in The Netherlands and a solid foundation of very capable people in the organisation.
The next couple of weeks the Counter-Strike clan will be playing several important tournaments and qualifiers. This sunday the qualifier finals for the Eurocup Cyber Games will be played online between us and ForZe at 21:00. Check out Gamelux for more details if you want to view the match live on HLTV.
Expect to hear a lot more about CEA and their community website.
