made it way friendlier for new users and these numbers aren't fake all you gotta do is check the case prices all rise up suddenly
faceit only reason i play csgo
Because it is one and only FPS game that is super-competetive and skill based
Nice thing this voice ban.
Now need to add more ranks.
Need to improve wingman so most solo queues play wingman.
And add a languange thing so that people who can speak understand same language play with each other.
Trust factor needs to be improved and thats it.
Operation and free to play
People forget it's the only fps that can easily transition into another other FPS. If you get good at counter strike you're usually good at any other fps. Can't say that for any other game.
Fortnite = building fast, aim means nothing. Dead game, mechanics dont transition into any other game.
These changes are all aimed at casual gamers.
It's disappointing to see.
it isnt popular, dont get brainwashed by meaningless numbers
ez 2 cheat, no real punishment, f2p and repeat = fun. ez math mens))
Mostly operation, but also alot of new chineese players
growth in china
revitalized stream presence forsen xqc trainwrecks etc.
Skins and streaming. Twitch had a huge part to play. Remove skins and twitch, you probably lose a decent percentage, and all the females.
It's no coinicidence that CSGO reached its highest peak of active players than never before. The answer is so simple; the coronavirus. The asian continent covers more than 40% of the world population and when the coronavirus had its outbreak people stayed inside to ply videogames.
source? you might ask. well, anyone who is knowledgeable within the stock market knows this is true
CSGO playerbase in early 2013 was low as hell. Wasn't until the update that brought skins and trading that made the game explode.
Remove skins and trading and 70% of the playerbase will leave, no joke
free cs and HVH every game
Player models actually gives the other team an advantage, for those who uses their brain.
CS started with and Old Business Model, most successful MMO like League of Legends, Fornite and dota are free to play, kids nowadays they refuse to pay cash to play but they will spend all their allowance on skins.
After CSGO went f2p the playerbase started to picked up again, even Pubg now is releasing Pubg lite that is f2p.
Because the formula works. Also, skins.
Because it had the name Counter-Strike in it.
Because people who play the game first time, instantly understand what’s going on
Because Valve keeps making moves that attracts new players and sustains old ones. On top of base game already beign great and having enough players to keep matchmaking queues filled. If it keeps happening then there is no reason for player numbers to decline.
Because csgo is cool, Gaben is GOAT, source engine is life
Because Fortnite is getting shit. And any other game is shit.
So all noobs are going to CSGO.
Project a is competiton and a threat to csgo's player base.
Example, when Overwatch was released and people said it would lower the tf2 player base.
The exact opposite happened, players wanted to support the game they loved.
