Women's Counter-Strike Is Ready For A Breakthrough

While the explosive growth in popularity for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has mostly made the Fnatics and the Na'Vis of the world into esports stars, the women's competitive scene has often been an overlooked cornerstone of the game. That's finally starting to change as they some of esports' biggest sponsors and organisations have started to give them serious support.

The announcement last Thursday that Team Secret, winners of the Dota 2 Shanghai Major, are expanding into Counter-Strike with a women's team is an indication of just how fast the landscape is shifting toward greater gender parity.

It's expected now that esports organisations will operate teams across more than one game, and it's no surprise the Team Secret would pursue Counter-Strike at a time when its popularity and viewership are higher than almost any other game. But it is remarkable that Secret chose to recruit the women's Counter-Strike team We Run This Place on the heels of their victory at the Intel Challenge in Katowice.

The new Secret team (formerly WRTP and Games4u) won the Katowice's women's event in absolutely dominant fashion, taking the $US15,000 ($19,723) grand prize without losing a single map. However, the women's tournament was also notable for featuring another instalment of what is becoming one of Counter-Strike's most enjoyable rivalries: CLG Red vs. Team Karma. CLG Red are some of the best-known players in Counter-Strike, a group of veterans whose history in the game stretches back over a decade and includes some of the greatest moments in CS:GO history.
