Omglul, CS is popular because Mibr’s investments led by Paulo Veloso on CS 1.6. The result of this endeavor was on 2006 Brazil won their first major and yet its the only esport Brazil is relevant.

Not really, cs is famous because 1.6 was present in every corner on lan houses and in most young male lives during the 00s.

It was fun to play and make fun of your opponent, we usually separated 2 teams on the same lan, and so it was really fun to see one or the other team lose to make fun of the other, everyone left happy after all, it was a good time to take the stress out.

Adding to #37, before lan cafés were a big thing we had what we called 'locadoras' where whoever had consoles could rent games or you could pay by the hour to play any console you wanted right there. This was already huge before HL/Quake/CS/Starcraft that made PCs popular This was how most millenials spent their time and some of the newer generations went along as well

I played in cs lan houses from 2000 to 2005, and it really happened that a giant community started playing again when the fallen team was at its peak.
2021-02-03 13:52
basically what @pls_cancel_gaules said early 2000s was a time when PCs was expensive but everyone used to go @lan play with their friends, the most played game was CS by far them came mibr going int and winning championships, which made this passion even stronger Fallen and CS:GO, LG/SK and so on was like, the 2nd chapter of this, the first was this early 2000s and mibr really almost every kid born in the 90s have this nostalgia feeling of going to the lan with friends back then
2021-02-03 13:57
Too much cyber cafes in 00's, or "Lan House" as we used to call here. Most of nerds that today have around 25-30-40 years old lived this era playing CS 1.3. It was really crazy.

CS started in Brazil in Lan Houses where many people went with their friends to play and there they discovered CS 1.6, in 2016 when LG won the Major many people started to follow Brazil in Esports, in 2018 when Brazilians started to lose many people stopped following, but in 2020 Gaules was on a podcast called "Flow Podcast", there many people liked him and started to follow his streams and consequently follow CS, Counter Strike in Brazil is already popular since 2000, however Gaules did community kinda triple

Fallen + Gaules fallen created the structure and taught Brazil, and created this passion that we have. And gaules made cs even more popular with his streams, he is more a casual "caster" and many people that don't even play, liked that's why he has 100k-300k people watching.
2021-02-03 14:30
due lanhouses back in 00's and NO Steam servers everybody knows CS, Tibia, Call of Duty etc, but CS was the most easy to download for free and well, its the most popular game since his first release
2021-02-03 14:35
Gaules propaganda so strong, and the power of Fallen EL MARKETEIRO. 80% of BR players never played on GC. Yes, number from my ass.

All started with lan-houses, where CS 1.6 became very popular here, and then in 2007/2008 CS 1.6 was banned in Brazil, so it lost the popularity, but in 2009 it was back again. CS:GO released and it wasn't as big as CS 1.6 was. But with the help of pro-players thriving and grinding in the CS:GO pro scene, it rlly became a thing here, more because of FalleN's support. We say he is the "dad" of brazilian CS scene. And later with gaules' livestreams that became very popular and reached a very big popularity here.

It was a mix of things said above in the comments. I remember when I used to go to the LOCADORA and lan houses as well with my brother. The environment was amazing, the passion for games started there. For CS, it in fact started with mibr in 1.6 and then the most influencer player FALLEN came and he changed the game and community, literally. He was responsible to implement many things here, a visionary I'd say. Now, it's up to gaules to keep the hype (it seems to getting better than I expected).
2021-02-03 16:56
it's fun
2021-02-03 16:58
17 years ago almost every street had a lanhouse with counter-strike 1.6 , for you guys get an ideia almost every person in my class played csgo even girls played, so its kind of a cultural thing and we are very passionate for cs in general and gaules made that feeeling come back again.

CS became very popular in the beginning of the 2000's era because of the LAN Houses (cybercafes). Most people who played CS back then never really paid attention for the competitive scene, but the game was very popular. PCs were VERY expensive for the average brazilian, our internet was pure trash, LAN houses were a place to hang with friends and stuff, it became cultural.
2021-02-03 17:12
1.6 was popular because of cyber-cafés and mibr back in 2012 BR scene was pretty much dead and no one wanted to migrate to csgo, fallen was one of the csgo precursors alongside with ESEA
