It’s been a long time since the last Q3 Promode tournament with actual prize pool (as in ’more then 20 bucks’) took place. Some smaller cups occurred from time to time, mostly for pure fun and enjoyment, which is basically all one can expect from Promode in 2013. Tears have been shed about the grim future of Promode, glorious fights that have been fought, great time we’ve had and so little hope we had left over the past few years. The times have changed and brought ’pure’ shooters to a mostly stuttering position, with little of new players’ inflow, communities fracturing or disappearing, and Promode has suffered the full extent of it.
While there have been some wild attempts to revive Promode, to some success, with the last developers dropping CPMA development it seems to be no longer possible. In the end, however, all comes down to playing the game you like and having the enjoyment of beating someone with your skill. It may not be possible to make our favourite game big once again but there is a breed of new players playing along with old ones still enjoying it.
That is why during last summer meeting we, #promode.ru community, decided to organize a worthy tournament with a prize pool to spice up the challenge and make things a bit more interesting once more. We talked over the current state of the scene and realized that teammodes would probably not get enough teams signed up, so we stayed with the idea of managing a pure 1v1 event. Most of people still involved in community donated so this is where it kicks in.
All players are welcome to participate. Older 1v1 veterans are encouraged to flex some muscles and get in. We hope U.S. & Canada players would consider participating as well.

Hello there everybody! Obviously CPM is pretty much dead, but yesterday I was randomly watching IGN Pro League stream and SirScoots made a really good point which encouraged me to finally organize this tournament, he said something like “let’s not get into which game is more skilled or which one is cooler, if you like the game, support it, support the players and support everything around it”. So this is my contribution to CPM because I simply like it:
± Aspirations for the Duel Tournament Series
I would like to make a new CPM duel tournament for the upcoming year, CPM FightClub 2013 Series: from the players to the players. The format would be scheduled for 2 cups per month, with a hypothetical LAN party at WZZRD gaming café as we have been planing since summer (depending of how many people are willing to go).
± Current Schedule Draft
This would be the whole schedule:
The red dots highlight the weeks when each edition would take place, July and August are the months available for the LAN (in case it is going to take place in August, we can make two more editions in July).
For the starting edition, we might have prize money for the 1st place and some beta keys for the 2nd and 3rd. I’m gonna try to set up a donations page for the LAN tournament, we might get interesting prizes this way.
± Opening Tournament
I’ll make a post about CPM FightClub #1 ASAP, hope there is going to be enough interest to keep my motivation up, besides, anyone who’s interested in helping me out with dirty admin stuff just let me know and of course streamers/casters who would like to take part of this are very, very welcome. Any kind of work would be awesome, a logo for this tournament series or simply spread the word! We’ve already done a test tournament not so long ago and
For several weeks, newborn released the official CPMA website. For the time being, it only consists in a single page with official binaries and some random videos, nothing more to expect. Maybe we will work together later, with newborn, for a joint style, but nothing concrete is planned yet.
The GET CPMA button on the top left corner of the pages of this website will bring you to this website as well.
Here are a few statistics about #cpmpickup games from cpmpickup.eu. If you have more to share about others communities or more recent values (those from cpmpickup.eu are about 1 year old), don’t hesitate to contact us, we would be glad to add them.
As announced on the 11th #cpmduel cup, we just released the Rankings system on the website.
For the time beeing, only the #cpmduel cups rankings is available, but more rankings can be created if needed.
About this first ranking, you can find more details on the page, like used values, rules etc.
As you can see, this is not the only changement on the website, left column disappeared, and we`ve not found it yet. So the menu went on the top bar, and the other parts on the right. Great, more space for the main content !
The menu has been organized in 5 parts (+login).
News: Everything related to the activity of CPMA, News, Tourneys, Streams and Rankings.
Misc: Every media content or useful links for CPMA; Servers, IRC, Quotes, Maps etc.
Guides: Guides and tutorials, like Installation, FAQ, Tech sheet, and so on.
Communities: Pages for the various communities on CPMA.
Setup: Page for some action on the website, account page, Search page etc.
Expect more changement on the website to come. If you have any suggestion, do not hesitate to share them here by leaving a comment.
Thanks to the work of a cpmer, the #cpmpickup website has been redone with a new design and new features. Like minky did on his own website, stats are also provided on this one, from the last matches on their servers to the detailed stats for a precise player.
