Why Valve care more about DOTA2 than CSGO?
Sweden m4st4m4st3r4wp 
Why we dont get international like dota 2? Is it cuz csgo has random shit guns through the years like cz, tec9, aug and sg etc? So they dont want to give millions to ppl playing rng game. Or is it cuz valve know many to pros are cheating? Or why the fuck they dont care more about csgo?

they dont want to promote a terror simulator game they are ashamed of the game they created
2020-03-29 18:25
Is that srsly a thing?
2020-03-29 18:26
yes it is the only thing hold them from promoting this game even better
2020-03-29 18:27

Since TI2012, China had 23 players in teams. Says a lot. + most played game is a rival to dota, thus pumping money in dota gets alot of attention from competition + cheating scandals are nonexistant in lan mobas because of the way they develop the game + already big audience from dota 1 + starcraft(not implying they are the same) - cs probably had the biggest audience before all those mobas, since everyone from the 90s had played the game. The marketing time to make cs #1 esports is long gone(even before 2012 when csgo was released), thus leaving it as is may be the best choice, risk-wise.
2020-03-29 19:46
United States 10YearBansRUs 
again thats evidence, not proof.
2020-03-29 20:26
The proof is TI's prize pool. Since Valve puts 1.6mil and 25% of battle pass, the revenue is pretty high, excluding the skins. However, that doesnt mean that they wouldn't make more $ if they put money in csgo... I only tried to reason their decision.
2020-03-29 21:05
United States 10YearBansRUs 
the question was what brings higher revenue. if we're arguing the TI prize pool then if u used market buying in cs and took a cut from that for the prize pool it could be way over dota due to key buying etc. so that's kinda a non point. there reasoning is counter strike is hard to advertise i believe but again i have no proof. there is no obvious answer because its obviously a stupid decisions by valve
2020-03-29 22:59
I'm still under the impression that marketing CS has long gone... LOL and dota has the spotlight of esports, leaving cs a small portion due to the domination of its genre. If they made the decision to support cs back in 2003-2009, the outcome would be much bigger than lol and dota combined imo. However, the scene would be much different if they marketed csgo the same way they did with dota. Currently, cs is the second game in prizepools and this is due to other organizations putting money in it - if valve dominated cs, yes the prizepool would be much bigger but no attention would be given by other organizations(apparently dota gets some attention with the minors, but is it enough?)

Cambodia Aces_Y (since Dota 2 newest is 2017 we gonna use 2017 for csgo too) so it's $406 million for Dota 2 and $341 million for CSGO
2020-03-29 19:57
United States 10YearBansRUs 
But CSGO has completely eclipsed Dota 2 in player count in the last year so surely 2017 is a bit outdated considering how ever evolving the player counts are?
2020-03-29 20:25
Europe LoookATme 
Cuz more money
2020-03-29 18:30
Dota2 has much more content+ gaben probably care much more about Asia region+ dota2 probably wanna be best moba game and they have strong opponent LOL. And in general dota2 is just better.
2020-03-29 18:30
you cant say dota is just better thats not how comparisons work
2020-03-29 18:46
League > Dota 2
2020-03-29 19:30
dota 2 is more marketable and can be played on toaster in a third world jungle which means it has a potential for a bigger player base
2020-03-29 18:33
It can? My computer handles csgo okay but i lag af on dota 2.
2020-03-29 18:33
I think that too they have bigger profits from dota
2020-03-29 19:15
Its funny cuz Valve is kinda trying to kill dota for the last year or so.

They didn't? They still gave significant updates in dota
2020-03-29 19:25
? Do u even play dota? They changed the game so muxh that the playerbase decreaset by almost 2 million and went back to 2014 in terms of active players. The worst part is they do nothing to improve beginners experience and huge part of the community is old people who cant spend so much time adapting to the fundumental changes they made. Also the summer mm update was a joke

Read my statement again jackass. The beginners experience has always been shite so i don't know what changes you expect to happen. January WAS the lowest point of Dota player count but it doesn't necessarily means valve tried to kill it. Fundamental changes? So you're saying outpost and neutral items affect the player base so much so that people just gave up and couldn't adapt to it. While ignoring the fact that the following patches are the results of community feedback regarding balance change to adapt to those same update. Summer mm update? Ranked roles? How's it a joke?

2020-03-29 22:28
Gabe is playing dota2 himself you can check his latest interview, not sure if thats anyway related to the development of the games, just making a point by connecting the dots, but imo you cant say they dont care, they are just okay with what they have at the moment since they as an organization are making lots of money from both
2020-03-29 18:41
Not to mention vr things hal life alyx .
2020-03-29 19:13
I think that's exactly the case. Gaben plays dota all the time.
2020-03-29 19:26
+1 true, valve pumping huge money into dota2 yet CS is more stable. They are just retarded and took the risk which cost and still costs them money and playerbase. Lack of iq imo.

DOTA 2 is Valve's, while CSGO is by Hidden Path
2020-03-29 19:19
China SwooksarV2 
I think it's because of the more investments from the Asian scene, aka china. And that's where the big money is at. Or, Gaben just likes Dota 2 more personally
2020-03-29 19:22
I want some new weapons with new spray patterns. Like ak74, g36c, m16, sg550 commando, maybe some rocket launchers. But these should be active at scrimmage mod. This would be fun

Because CSGO is already the biggest game of its category, no need to promote it more for them. But in Dota2 Category there is big LoL, so if they wanna attract LoL players they have to make it looks good with lot of money and big events

how is CSGO gettin bigger? the game went free 2 play and the player base grew like 20% from when it was a paid game, if CSGO was gettin bigger then valve would never make the game go f2p, usually when companies make a paid game f2p its because the game is dying.

The Dota ecosystem is broken compared to the CSGO ecosystem, so not really... Dota events barely gets any views, Dota just has 1 big event every year and that's it

"barely get any views" lmao it gets way more viewers than CSGO events, dota is like the number 1 e-sport in china and china has a pop of 1.3 bi

We will get some sort in the future, it just takes time for the scene to slowly step up, they can't risk CS:GO going the Overwatch bubble route.

Valve doesnt care about either. They dont care about esports. They care about VR. Gaben wanks his sosig to vr technology and animated ass.
2020-03-29 22:30
Icefrog is the smarter developer than the 2 csgo dudes. Since the 1 csgo maker is fired csgo changed a lot. I have no doubts that Icefrog works atm for csgo_dev team.

CS GO stays alive without Valve caring about it, because cs is easily the best shooter there is. DOTA2 needs updates and care to not lose against LoL.

Maybe u r right. But u know their updates suck so much? In dota2 in this case.
