First prize is now half of that, and only those in code S get decent cash prizes. Even if you end up in the finals in code A you get less than most of those in Code S.

MLG takes two days to win 50k, GSL takes a month to win about 45k...

Im not trying to start a flame war but a battle in cross systems would be very unfair. I wouldnt make any judgments until you've done both and have been someone in the gaming world.
I've played both and played leagues in the CoD2 days and IMO console players are usually dumb as ****. I've watch some MLG CoD4 games on youtube and they were terrible. Simple strats, just rushing around, no good set nades, no spam spots, terrible aiming, etc. It sucks that they get paid to play that bad.

As someone that has played on a high level and won some money money through CoD on console, I'd like to know who/what you watched. People are entitled to their opinions, but when it feels like the person is implying that they can do better in any way it just bothers me.

As for the terrible aiming part...well it's console. People can only be so accurate with awful joysticks.

dead link,
on topic I think that the halo people are better than the cod people, and they should have more pc related games.

I don't really remember but they were some "big" name teams though. I could do better, but I play on the PC so it's different. But that's it. That's why I can't watch these "pros." I'm used to the "high" level of play on the PC and when I watch these guys play like average pubbies then it's just painful knowing they're getting payed. I feel so nerdy now.

Because shooters on consoles are like driving oval racing cars with restrictor plates. I stick to the Formula 1 cars i.e. the PC. Not being able to do half of the things I do on the PC because of a gimped controller is lame for me.

You COULD NOT do better. This is what everyone that hasn't/doesn't play on the platform says. Flat out wrong.

I could do better but I play on PC so it's a moot point and the level is higher because you aren't limited by gimped controls. A lot of those guys could benefit from watching some videos on tek9.
