20 years of history and u want to change a very thing that made counter strike? No
posted about this already
csgo will become sjw-approved game, so no.
What sponsors are we missing out on? The only reason OWL has big sponsors is because those teams are owned by big business men that use their connections to get them ex coca-cola (activision guy has a seat on the board of coca-cola). Also these games (LOL, OWL) run in seasons which is much more advertiser friendly than tournaments. If there is value in sponsoring these events sponsors will come at the end of the day businesses care about money. As long as the org is business savy they can land non-endemic sponsors look at Astralis and Audi.
What are you a fucking normie?
I though it in CS 1.5 when I start to play in 2001.
I thought Counter Strike is a game that shoot in people so it will never be on TV or become a sport, the game was prohibited in Brazil because of the map cs_rio that time.
We have a boom of lan houses, the game almost die in 2010.
But here we are, watching the Majors.
5v5 PLACE THE TEDDY BEAR AT A OR B, AND HUG IT BEFORE IT GETS SAD! (defusal)
No one cares burger boy 😎
I am disgusted by the sjw's and this leftist propaganda shit but unfortunately CS:GO honestly NEEDS to start growing, and that seems as a way to make it happen, otherwise it will die within couple of years.
This Video shows poor research and false conclusions. While on one hand he talks about not getting enough big sponsors like Coca Cola, he ignores that comparable companies like pepsi and other big brands are sponsors. Also the reasoning behind the teams interviewed is misleading. Not every team needs to be in csgo. If Schalke prefers other games that is fair enough.
The biggest problem however is, that he suggests changing T and CT would solve the problem, but then critizises that blowing up the powerplant on Nuke or the house on Overpass is a problem. If that is a problem, changing the names has no effect at all.
Also the R6 argument; you could also have T and CT in a sinulation. It is okay for players to be the „bad“ side of things.
In general one should expect that people can differentiate between game and reality. Terrorism exists for more than the last 3 years. If anything, the whole game is problematic, which again, would be stupid as it is not real life not does it represent any political opinion.
It's a game about shooting people in the head and planting bombs (Besides that, it's rated 16+ & 18+)
We don't need to change, the sponsors do.
No, stop being cucks and realize no one wants that. I'd rather die than see some shills change the only game I remotely care about to match their opinions because they're too scared to scare other people. If people don't like CS they can GTFO and make their own game.
Call me cuck.
If it means the esport and game continue to grow I don't care if T's are called attackers.
Changes zero about the gameplay.
"United States" flag checks out, expected from 24/7 perpetually triggered snowflake nation
I mean it makes sense why sponsors wouldn't want to associate with this e sport in today's time. Many "news" outlets could tear up big companies by using click bait titles such as "Blank has become a partner with a game that promotes terrorism". Society is too delicate and would take that as granted which is bs and could in turn only hurt companies.
Counterstrike without Counterterrorist?
If people dont like it they are at the wrong door. I dont want money in eSports if they dont accepted what it is.
its a game, not a middle east simulator... if ur an investor and cant understand the difference i dunno how u actually got money in the first place
CSGO as a game on every level is dying, even as a f2p game, it can't pull the same players it used to.
what a stupid idea rofl change something that has been the same for 20 years?
why would you want more money in this game? all that more money has done is give everyone and their grandma reasons to cheat on tournaments.
This isn't American Football.
This world has become so sensitive.
Its a game about shooting people in their head. It has gore,blood which people are fine with. But problem is with simple term terrorist?
Grow some thicker skin. Globalist corps will never want to sponsor cs.
They have others plans.
So you can imagine yourself hearing "Attackers win" at the end of 1v5 clutch with bomb planted? Hell no that's gay.
changing the word from Terrorist to Attacker does not change the fact that you are playing as a terrorist
Bullshit thats what old folk would say,wait 10-15 more years for future CEOs when old ones retire they will invest in esports and it will be top 1 sport EZ FOR ME
Well the attackers are planting bombs to blow up civil targets, sounds pretty terrorist like to me
attacking a site and planting a bomb to destroy it = terrorism, you can call them Cute Waifus if you want, but they're still terrorists
Besides the Schalke retarded guy said that the problems are "shooters" not the terrorist label
no, cs should never be a top1 contender for popular game
shit like aug, or every thing that valve does to make the game easier, for popular "gamers" to play is fucked up, and kills the game
the game in its original form didnt die for so long, valve will end up killing it by making it more and more popular (trying)
The fact that you think changing the names from ct/t's to something more SJW friendly would somehow attract more sponsors is one of the dumbest things I've read on this site.
this guy interviews 2 org owners who couldn't hack it in CS and draws his conclusions from there. Plenty of other orgs are doing just fine in CS. Turner didn't have any qualms televising CS with Eleague and they managed to sell television adspace just fine
rename CT to America, T to ISIS, get funding from Trump LOL
CSGO will outlive this political issue
