60 Minutes at CPL Winter

The CBS news program known as ’60 minutes’ will be covering the CPL winter event this year. For those of you who have never heard of 60 mintutes, It’s been in Nielsen’s Top 10 programs a record 23 consecutive seasons and an average of 14 million viewers tune into the broadcast every week. It is a very mainstream program in the USA; Dustin Hoffman, Jim Carrey, and Alicia Keys have all been featured on the show recently. Now its time for the CPL’s turn.

Okay heres the good news.. 60 Minutes will be focusing primarily on the competitors of the USA national Painkiller qualifier for the $1,000,000 CPL World Tour. Not only could you guys be travelling to America to play in the first Painkiller world tour qualifyer, but theres a large possibility you could be on TV and viewed by over 14 million people aswell!

I am very pleased to see this anouncement. It will surely help e-sports a hell of a lot and I would like to thank the CPL for their grand efforts.

  1. Even if all those promised features will reach us at time, painkiller will still remain a crappy game with it´s ridiculous spawnweapon.
    Don´t get me wrong, i kind of like this game because of the dominating rocketlauncher and the lack of ping-weapons like railgun, but as long as the 200-damage-doing-dildo-gun stays the spawn(!)weapon we will see some very silly world tour matches..
    And don´t come up again with this “you got to have something to defend yourself against the RL” bullshit, the shotgun is defence enough.

    PS. NO, the stakegun is not a skillweapon!

  2. a little update, 60 minutes is also currently in sweden right now for dreamhack a guy followed us around last night to dinner and out to play tennis.. cool stuff

  3. has eSrem said … it s a very complicated subject for television … coz u need a good explanation of it …if u just show 500 moron in front of their computer screaming HEADSHOT MOTHERFUCKER it s not a good thing … so i hope it will be a great interesting subject …

  4. Hmm. I am very excited it will be on such a popular show. I hope they don’t fuck it up like some other bits on esports I’ve seen. Generally though, 60 minutes seems to do a damn good job on their news stories, so we can hope 🙂
