In news that makes us feel ancient, DreamHack has decided to host the Senior Championship for Counter-Strike Global Offensive. The requirement, that you must be aged over 30-years-old.
Hosted in in Jönköping, Sweden between the 17th and 20th June, DreamHack Summer 2017 will actually host four special tournaments. Juniors, Seniors, Females and Free-For-All. The first three tournaments will see the winners claim 10,000 SEK (£877 / $1,139) while the Free-For-All winners will net 15,000 SEK (£1,315 / $1,708).
The BYOC (Bring Your Own Computer) events will be made up of 64 teams that will be whittled down over three days until the winner is crowned.
While there is research which suggests your reaction times drop off after age 24, it still makes us feel over the hill to see the over 30’s classed as “Seniors.”
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is available now for Mac, PC and SteamOS.
