General CS: GO eSports Page

Based upon the original Counter-Strike game that was launched back in 1999, the Global Offensive game has surely made the CS: GO eSports industry what it is today. With two teams that are going against each other in an attempt to win the match, the game’s competitiveness was what brought CS: GO to its current glory. In the game industry, the game is one of the electronic sports that have a lot of tournaments and pro teams that boost popularity even further.

With multiple game modes, maps, and amazing skins, the first-person shooter is something that will still be around for a long time to come. How did it all start for the video game, though? Let’s take a look into eSports Counter Strike.

CS: GO eSports History

CS: GO didn’t exactly come out of nowhere. In fact, the shooter game was released as a sequel to the first version of the game, aka Counter-Strike: Source. When the game started being developed with the goal to be ported onto video game consoles, Global Offensive has been created. In March 2010, the development for it began, but it was only in August 2011 that is was revealed to the public.

Later, in November, the closed beta started, and only ten thousand people were able to play. But more and more people were allowed after the game has addressed some issues, and in August 2012, the game’s release was announced.

Ever since the CS: GO eSports release, the game has been constantly updated, with new modes, weapons, and maps being added as time went by.

Professional World

CSGO didn’t remain a simple game – it became a chance for players to go professional and win some cash for simply participating in tournaments.

Basically, nowadays there are third-party organizations in the eSports industry that host competitions, along with Valve. Over the years, the number of tournaments for CSGO eSports has increased, and one of the most popular events hosted by an eSport organization is the Major. The Majors are tournaments held every year, with large prize pools that teams want to get their hands on. So, many eSport CSGO players can gain additional cash by playing the game.

Of course, not all prize pools are that high, and in 2015, some eSport association members announced that there will be a formation of a trade union. This one set some demands for teams that attended future tournaments. Posted by Alexander Kokhanovsky, CEO of the team Natus Vincere, an email was sent to the organizers of professional eSport competition organizers on CS: GO. One of the demands said that teams that were part of the union would not go to any eSports CSGO event that has a prize pool of less than $75,000. Some of the teams that were announced here aside from Natus Vincere were Titan, Fnatic, Team Liquid, Team EnVyUs, Counter Logic Gaming, Team SoloMid, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Virtus.pro and Cloud 9.

Popular Game Modes

If you’re getting into CS: GO, it’s important to know the most common game modes, so you can get started and try to get into professional eSports competitions in the future too. Here are some of the modes of the PC game:

Deathmatch

This eSport CS: GO mode is for people who have already spent time in the game and can deal with faster pacing. You need to make decisions and move quickly and respawns can be done instantly. Even buying weapons can be done for a limited amount of time.

You have to get points by making kills, and different weapons will offer you different amounts of points.

Casual

You may be newer to the game and want to get used to it first, or you may just want to enjoy a chill match. Casual mode is for you, then. In this game, you can play at your own pace and it’s pretty easy.

Demolition

Demolition can be pretty entertaining because here you take turns defending and attacking a bombsite. The gameplay is fast-paced, and you are given a certain weapon at the start. As you advance and make more kills, you will gain stronger weapons and so on.

Final Thoughts

The Counter-Strike eSports industry is big, as the game introduced many people to eSports and gave them many things to look forward to. If you want to get into eSport CS: GO, it’s important to know basic information about the game.
