Top teams north and faze and 60k viewers on semifinal. LOL, i would understand if some tier 3 teams would be playin. You cant explain this with anything really. Its just sad fuck pubg, most boring game.

Dude it's 1AM over here in europe, it's the middle of the fucking week and it's european teams playing at these crappy times. Tbh even I, as a FaZe supporter, want to leave right now with this half hour technical issue. Fucking ELEAGUE...

273,776 currently playing csgo, it's really low indeed
2017-10-13 00:50
in peak hours the number doubles, which is decent for CS.

But csgo is hitting all time low on twitch since the last major... It's really worrying because it's estimated that over 100k active csgo players have switched to PUBG, even tho i see no competitive future for that game...
2017-10-13 00:59
Who cares about some people switching to a game that will die in a few months? Not everything is about hitting peak numbers every month, CS isn't a game for casuals to overrun. This is why always games like COD were more popular for a small while, but died within a single year, yet CS holds the strongest for 18 years with only 3 game iterations. You also don't mention that CS is already 5 years old, and it's mostly grown stronger with the years.

you don't understand 1 thing about pubg. people go to pubg because they like casual games not stressful games. That's why pubg has more players. Of course pubg will not be a competitive game since there is no way in hell they can make tournaments with that game.

also 100k watching LoL, and 40k watching shroud playing pubg...
2017-10-13 00:51
LoL is just a rerun of worlds atm, and once again, it's the middle of the week and 1AM over here. Btw, LoL's last update was 100M monthly active players in 2016 but recent ladder statistics have shown that 100M people are playing on Chinese servers alone. LoL has like 15x the active playerbase of CS, it's no surprise it gets so many viewers.
2017-10-13 00:54
You know that chinise people don't watch twitch right? they have their own streaming website which has +400k viewers at league...
2017-10-13 01:04
Yes, I know, even more. I can't stress enough to people that Riot's advertisement and global support of their game is the reason LoL is such a big esport. Last year's worlds final had 14,7M concurrent viewers and over 40M unique, that is more than NBA finals, superbowl, anything but the football world cup really. Only 1.5M or so in total was on twitch, 1M of that being on the main channel, like 5M people were watching on korean/chinese streaming sites and a ton on TV as well. Funny cause dota2, a valve game, on this year's TI had 8 times the prize pool of League's worlds prizepool last year and yet not even 1/3rd the concurrent viewers, even less unique ones.
2017-10-13 14:58
League has 88 Mil chinese "people" (they have a shitton of servers in china, so people make alot of smurfs) Playerbase in the west isn't even that big in league. imgur.com/a/TV3bb
2017-10-13 01:09
But as far as I know this was based on 2016 info. Since then, obviously, it's continued to grow...
2017-10-13 14:56
NA audience watching the most overrated broken game in history. (PUBG)
2017-10-13 00:55
everyone is following shroud,
2017-10-13 15:07
funny how that wasnt a problem a year ago? Sure, it had less viewers than in peak times but it wasnt like this

hopefully boston major will get more
2017-10-13 00:49
It will as majors per usual but even on a major scale it will be a letdown. We need a new map other than dust.

tuscan sounds good
2017-10-13 00:54
+1 this. IT would bring so much more than just fucking remodelling the old ones.¨ brand new map, imagine the hype and excite to watch it. Most maps are so fucking boring now, inferno for example.

but we all saw how it went when valve tried to create a map of their own (canals) so why not take basically every fmpone map and add them to the game? that dude is amazing. and tbh i dont really like the idea is reusing old maps liek tuscan, i think that cs needs something new instead
2017-10-13 01:00
canals was never meant for competive play. It was just a filler. Yeah but that is not gonna happen. i would like tha map located in the conctruction building whatever its called

Won't happen. The creator doesnt want his map to be used.
2017-10-13 00:59
i mean, ppl said that 9 months ago aswell. then the eleague major hit the most viewed single stream on twitch with over 1000,000 concurrent viewers

Honestly, im kinda tired of the current map pool, maybe adding a hostage map would bring a HUGE twist, could gain some interest
2017-10-13 01:01
+1 been thinking this about years now. Or just make brand new map. or bring italy or aztec back somehow

office would be insane, most ppl dont use ak m4 on it, some parts (long, maybe near ct spawn) you could use akm4, but awp and smg/shotgun would be fun to watch
2017-10-13 01:05
i would like aztec even tho its kinda boring, but i like the sceneery and the green visuals. Rework that map and it would look fucking amazing. Bored of these dull sand maps like cache, mirage, dust..

true, the rain of aztec is always fun (i think theres rain sometimes?) and the peeks on bridge and stuff would be cool, +1 bring it back
2017-10-13 01:08
Fucking yeah, loved the awp battles on bridge and on doors. Also its so fucking big map which relies alot in aimduels instead of executes which would make it alot more interesting and the invidual talent would shine.

Theres also teamwork involved, clutching could be tough, and if ur man dies you better get that trade, great map for dbl awp setups
2017-10-13 01:14
it would just be like fresh breath of air. Also the scenery would be big +. TO me most of the maps look/feel the same. just imagine the hype if they would bring that map back with rework.. they really need to do something and remodelling the old ones simply doesnt cut it.. Why they cant understand this?

what if they had some map like in the middle of some urban high rise area, honestly all these like country-ish maps r old, maybe like an office but bomb sites and a little bigger, and i know they r trying to be nice with a new d2, but reminds me of santorini from op.wildfire, which isn't bad, just something i noticed

cmon.. you know that that does not have anything to do with this.
2017-10-13 00:52

2017-10-13 01:28

2017-10-13 00:52
and? they played year back same but still +40k more viewers. fuck pubg boring shit
2017-10-13 00:55
Dont like eleague production feels like random online league match cuz no crowd
2017-10-13 00:53
Eleague is one of the most boring tournaments.
2017-10-13 00:53
Kinda is yeah, same they got major. I wish MLG would have got it

2017-10-13 00:58
Meh CS is getting boring to watch overall. To me it was fun to follow some teams who always came up with new ideas how to take over sites, or use different rotations and positions as CT, everything is just MONO nowadays "Throw smoke there, run there, shoot there, flash there, stand there". Sadly it's just not fun enough to watch pug style matches anymore, even tough it's massive skill involved ofcourse.
2017-10-13 01:02
True. Also im so bored about the fake hype casters (sadokist) I can even hear from casters voice that they are somehow bored. All these esl/ecs matches.. the casters arent even trying anymore. Thats why i would like a brand new map.. not fucking rework of the old ones.

I have a theory: huge fanbase of VP NIP fnatic NaVi is a bit tired of their bad (or in case of fnatic not brilliant as they used to be) shape and that's why the viewers numbers are not as high as year or so ago. Not stating that fanbase of those teams was the healthiest but when CS was more competitive more people have been watching and cheering
2017-10-13 01:06
You are missing the point that all of those teams made lineup changes which should attract fans to watch. "like who is this new kid rez, or golden for example" sure they have been pretty bad form but Navi has been bad for over year now aswell VP. Also na teams are doing pretty good with liquid but even that hasnt bring much viewers.
2017-10-13 01:11
Personally I consider those tournaments as off-season, not because those matches are less important but the atmosphere is rather not tense

I just think maps are getting boring. I hate watching inferno or train. I love playing the maps, but like god damn so boring
2017-10-13 01:09
+111 agree. Fucking inferno its so fucking boring literally. The same fucking executes all the time. On inferno only exciting thing in that map is where the t's go by CT and flank the banana defenders but its really so fucking boring. Most boring map by far to watch.
2017-10-13 01:12
2017-10-13 01:13
almost half of those players are from china. Dota and CSGO numbers dont show chinese players since they play on other servers (perfect world)
2017-10-13 14:22
PubG is fucking trashhhhhh lmao
2017-10-13 01:13
It is. I cant understand how these streamers stream the same shit and ppl get excited over and over agian. Sure theres stuff happening but still its fucking dull. and literally 1 playable map (LOL!)

boring to watch, yes. but definitely not boring to play. i bought it when it got released into EA back in march. haven't touched cs ever since, i even deleted the game from my pc. it's not for everyone tho, but the numbers don't lie. people got bored with old games, and it's nice to have a fresh breath of air.

as long there are majors for CS:GO , the game is nowhere dead. Now a dead game would be CS 1.6, CS: Condition Zero (in truth it was dead since release) and CS: Source.
