i think you are right. Valve could have not let this game die, but they only care about money. As long as hackers keep buying new accounts they are good. They dont give a shit about CS as an esport, which is why it will die as no new players are now playing csgo. Most new players quit within few hours, and older players like me are getting tired of the hackers and same boring shit for 3000 hours.
there will be no cs:go2
it will die but not in 2020. maybe 2022-2024
the average rn is like 500k not 300-400
even if that happened, every player in top10 team will be multimillionaire and don't have to do any work ever again. u mad brah?
