Counter-Strike: Global Offensive — #1 in Global eSports!

Counter-Strike is a popular multiplayer first-person shooter series that occupies a top position on the competitive video game scene. CS is a veteran of the gaming industry and players were first introduced to it in 1999. True, at that time, CS was just an amateur mode to the popular at that time game Half-Life. However, the company Valve was able to evaluate the potential of the modification and in 2000 released Counter-Strike as a separate game. It was the right decision, as the new shooter really caught the gamers’ taste and occupied a leading position in the video gaming market, competing with such projects as Quake and Unreal. The reasons for the success were the original model of team confrontation and close to the reality of the story part, telling about the anti-terrorist operations. With the release of each subsequent version of the game, the public interest in Counter-Strike only grew.

In 2012, Valve released Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, abbreviated CS:GO, which is still relevant today. The game gained particular popularity thanks to competitions within the CS GO eSports.

The Essence and Rules of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

The rules of the game are quite simple. Players are divided into two opposing teams. One team is the special forces, the other is the terrorists. At the beginning of each round, players purchase weapons and equipment that help them perform the combat task. The purchase is done with virtual money, which is earned during the match. Killing the enemy, planting a bomb, or defusing a bomb all earn money to the players’ account. In addition, completing these tasks is a condition for winning the round.

The competitive part of the game consists of 30 rounds, each of which lasts no longer than 1 minute and 55 seconds. The team that can win 16 rounds first wins the map. The entire match may consist of several cards, so to win the match, you must finish the greatest number of cards in your favor.

CS:GO is a team shooter and this has a strong influence on gameplay. Gamers must not only know how to handle different types of weapons but also learn how to work as a team. Only coordinated actions will allow the team to count on success. It is especially important when we are talking not about amateur matches, but about the competitions of professional eSport CSGO.

  • The prize pool of a top championship can be as high as $1,000,000. This is a lot of money, in the struggle for which the best teams must invest maximum effort.
