Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Competitive Gaming is Becoming More Legitimate

Since the time where friends got together and played video games at LAN parties, competitive gaming has grown at an exponential rate. Before, games like Call of Duty, Halo, Street Fighter, and Counter-Strike were at the peak of esports with small tournaments all over the country. Fast-forward to 2018, and now these games - and more - are played in tournaments all over the world.

CS:GO patch puts the spotlight on the R8 revolver

Every once in awhile, the fine people behind CS:GO (Counter-Strike: Global Offense) decide “you know, I’m bored, let’s make chaos” and that, is how you end up with the R8 revolver.

 

Quickly becoming known as the pistol equivalent of the AWP, the R8 is a high impact pistol with 16 bullets and a trigger delay. So now you can one-hit people from across the map, but you have to account for the slight delay between clicking and firing. For those who played CS 1.6, you might remember similar characteristics (minus the trigger delay) in the original Deagle.

CS:GO Updates July 9

There comes a moment in every CS player’s life when you open up Steam, click on the play button, and yet, no game loads. You then notice the pop up informing you that the game is updating. “Oh great” you think, “are they nerfing the awp again? buffing the SMGs?”, it’s always a mystery when the release notes come out after the update is pushed.

That time has come again.

Last night, CS:GO pushed an update that was mostly focused on stemming exploits.

EGF Monkey Business

Last night the latest weapons skins case for CS:GO was released to the community featuring some super loud designs and some hefty prices. Although the case’s name suggests a relationship with the original Chroma case, unlike the eSports cases, a Chroma 2 key will not work with the original Chroma case. 

Valve: Updates to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

January 8, 2015 - Valve has released their latest update for Counter-Strike:Global Offensive since mid-December.

The most noticeable update is buffs to the infamous CZ-75. The gun’s clip has been restored to its original 12 bullet capacity, as opposed to the nerfed 8, and the rate of fire has been returned to its previous state. Although no specific explanation was offered for why the gun’s stats were changed, it likely has to do with community discontent at changes to one of the community’s favorite eco-round tools.
