The whole story regarding iBUYPOWER started as a completely normal business story – it was a tech company producing computers and systems for its customers. But it grew to be something much more than just a company – it became a huge influencing force that helped to spread Counter-Strike across the world.

Unfortunately, they have faced a few blocks in the road over the years. The team they were sponsoring had legal and technical issues. After some of their players got in trouble with Valve, they chose to take a step back and not sponsor any team whatsoever.

Nowadays they aren’t flying high as they once were, but still host Master tournaments and other events in the USA.
