Quote:He was the founder of the CPL (Cyberathletic Professional League) and the online equivalent CAL (Cyberathletic Amatuer League). The CPL was the precursor to Dreamhack and was even before ESWC and the WCG. CAL was the online league to play Counterstrike in and was around way before CEVO.
I would say Angel Munoz was a great foundation for what eSports is today.
For CS 1.6, Team 3D, Team NoA, the original Schroet Kommando, Eyeballers, Complexity all started in CPL.
For Quake, the CPL make Wombat, Fatal1ty, ZeRo4, czm, cooler.
The CPL World Tour brought Vo0 to light in Painkiller and really put Fnatic on the map. Painkiller was the first tournament to be hosted in ten cities world wide for a one million dollar prize pool and finished off being broadcasted on MTV (which was a ****ty finals).
