It looked obvious, when AuroraUnited picked up the former Spanish team whatsup? a few weeks ago that the team would in fact be making the switch, alongside many others it's beginning to seem, to CS:GO. The Spanish side, now supported by the Danish organisation, have picked up a few awards in the past couple of years and are viewed as the strongest side that Spain has to offer right now, cemented by their recent win at this year's Spanish EPS finals.
But looming over the horizon, is of course the new iteration of the Counter Strike franchise, and the Spaniards will not be hanging up their mice just yet, in fact it looks as though they are welcoming the new game with open arms.
AuroraUnited will from year 2013 not be supporting Counter Strike : Source nor Counter Strike 1.6. The decision is made to only be support Counter Strike : Global Offensive players and teams, aswell as the other games already supporting. It is time to make a change in the FPS genre, it is time to unite the 2 communities, and build 1 strong. FPS games are dying, and we have the chance to stop it, and it’s now. Games as League of Legends, StarCraft 2 etc. is taking over the eSport scene. After ESCW announced that they were not going to support a Counter Strike : Source tournament, and other tournament organizers taking the same decision, we decided to go all in on the game from year 2013. After Assembly and the next Insomnia lan CS:GO is probably taking over. As we now see many top teams already spending more hours on CS:GO than CS:S/CS it’s probably a sign saying that they are going to shift. And when all the good teams shift, the rest of the scene will probably follow them. I have tried the game. It has potential. It can take FPS games to a whole new level. It will no longer be dominated by your aim, now it’s your mind winning the match, making the game more tactic adding the molotov and decoy grenade. Please, don’t get scared because a few chickens is running around in De_Inferno. Isn’t this what we have always talked about? Isn’t this what we all wan’t? To bring the two communities together?"
Aurora is not attending i46 but will be attending several big events in the future. This is also why we are going to make the shift, as we have ambitions playing against the top at an international event. As our team won 2 lans this summer, it's time to be proven international.
Things seem to be looking up for the Spanish/Danish dynamic duo, and hopefully we will see great things from them in the future.
