CPL returns to Köln

First big CPL Europe event of 2002 announced

CPL Europe has unveiled its first major pro-gaming event of 2002, taking place in the German city of Köln between May 17th and 19th. There's no information yet on how much it will cost, how big the prizes will be or how many people will be able to take part, but all of these details should be announced over the next few weeks, with registration opening next Monday (March 24th). What we do know at this stage is that both Counter-Strike and Quake 3 teamplay tournaments will be taking place at the event, which will be hosted by the Maritim Hotel, conveniently situated on the banks of the river Rhine. CPL Europe have also decided to eliminate the bring your own computer LAN party area which has been a fixture of previous events. Apparently this "underlines its intention to focus on the official tournaments". And is nothing to do with the fact that only about a dozen people bothered to show up for the free BYOC area at the CPL Europe event in London last summer. Related Feature - CPL London coverage
