CS:GO becomes free-to-play, battle royale mode in new update

Striker
December 6th, 2018 22:30

Valve has released a new update, making the full version of CS:GO free-to-play, while adding a new battle-royale-style game mode called "Danger Zone".

The game has become fully free-to-play after Valve hinted at their plans of making it so with previous updates, which allowed newcomers to utilize certain parts of the game free of charge, such as playing offline and spectating matches.

A new battle-royale game mode Danger Zone, which also comes with a case of the same name with 17 community-designed skins, is now available to be played solo or in teams of two to three players.

The full changelog of the update can be found below:

[CSGO – Danger Zone]

– Introducing Danger Zone, a fast-paced battle royale game mode built on CS:GO’s tactical gameplay. For more details, visit: www.counter-strike.net/dangerzone
– Danger Zone can be played solo, or in squads of two or three players.

[FREE TO PLAY]

– CS:GO is now free to play. For more details, visit the F2P FAQ.
– All players who played CS:GO before the Danger Zone update will receive a commemorative Loyalty Badge they can display on their profile.
– All current CS:GO Players have been upgraded to Prime Status
— Prime Status continues to match you with other Prime Status players
— Additionally, your Prime Status will give you access to the new Souvenir MP5-SD | Lab Rats (available by earning XP while playing Danger Zone matches) and the new Danger Zone case.

[Danger Zone Case]

– Introducing the Danger Zone Case, featuring 17 community-designed weapon finishes, and the Horizon Knives as rare special items.

2018-12-06 23:05
I dont play MM like u normie im faceit level 10
2018-12-06 23:19
you are not even remotely good at the game if you have high trust factor
2018-12-07 04:17
who the fuck cares, his point is that you will face less cheaters LMAO
2018-12-07 07:53
and my point is that you suffer from low trust factor when you're good at the game and get reported from time to time. and what's yours?

K bud you clearly have no understanding how it works. False reports do not harm your trust factor. They have stated this numerous times. I've been reported countless times for cheating on my climb from GNM to LE. Theres been 3 convicted cheaters in my last 100 games from MGE-LE. From what others have stated the only mass reports that hurt trust factor are if your reported for griefing in multiple games, so be less toxic.
2018-12-07 16:28
source? they? edit: found this just after 2 minutes of googling: "So what if the Prime system was re-imagined using a wider range of factors? We started with that question, and have been experimenting with matching players using observed behaviors and attributes of their Steam account, including the overall amount of time they had spent playing CS:GO, how frequently they were reported for cheating, time spent playing other games on their Steam account, etc. We call this system Trust, and these factors considered together form a player’s Trust Factor." blog.counter-strike.net/index.php/the-tr.. i dont throw, i try to be as friendly as possible all the time yet whenever i queue with my friend it says i have significantly lower trust factor than my friend.
2018-12-07 18:54
That just means your friend has a way higher trust factor than you. Doesn't mean your trust factor is low
2018-12-09 12:33
which does not make sense if you look at our accounts
2018-12-09 16:48
Why not? You don't have any good idea of what goes into determining a trust factors to begin with. I'm sure there's some other stuff that determines a trust factors that Valve hasn't brought up.
2018-12-10 01:26
ok maybe i should put it like this, my account should be better or has higher reputation etc than my friend's. I'm sure the factors cannot be weird stuffs like your account's name id, your favorite gun in csgo etc? it has to be your game hours, how frequent you are being reported, even inventory and similar stuffs?
2018-12-10 07:35
Steam id may actually affect your trust factor, I'm sure they factor in the age of your account into their calculations
2018-12-11 13:48
i doubt it does but even if it does, mine are all pretty family-friendly and my account is much much older than my friend's. the only possible factor that's left and i could think of is number of reports
2018-12-12 05:59
Tbh I don't really care enough about this, it's hard for me to just believe you without knowing everything but I also don't care enough to put in the effort to know.
2018-12-14 00:35
yea i dont feel like convincing you as well maybe just end it here and continue on believing what we believe

Its true. For pepole like me who play faceit for free will be very fucked up when they can register in faceit whitout prime, get banned on faceit and maje another acount. Would playing leagues help?

I don't think cheater will buy the prime status now because for them it's not important which players are there enemies. Free to Play will be full of hacker but Prime will be slightly free of it after some time.

But that will take reeeeally long and until they are level 21, they will most likely get banned And if current cheaters, that got prime, are there, they will also be banned and they have to create a free one, so we „experienced“ players shouldnt be worried. Only the Free-Players.
2018-12-07 06:14
and community servers? they have no prime

2018-12-06 23:28
Yeah but the one thing you aren’t getting. prime is automatic now when you pay. Before it was like this. 1. Cheater buys account 2. Cheater plays against other cheaters until rank 21 3. Cheater cheats in prime Now they can skip either 1 or 2 Either skip 1 and grind a free acc to rank 21 Or skip 2 and instantly get prime, no grind necessary

With a free account you won't acquire prime if you reach level 21, only by buying it.
2018-12-07 23:01
No you mustve not read properly. Read the Free to play FAQ, if u reach level 21 and add phone number, you can get prime on a free to play account. So now you have the options: 1. Either buy the game to instantly get prime 2. Or get a phone number, get rank 21, and get prime.

Why do people keep thinking this? Matchmaking is based on trust factor yall. Those free to play accounts will never match up with you.... ever. Like never ever ever are you on 1000+ hour account going to be matched up with a free to play account. And those that buy prime right away will have nearly 0 trust factor so again they wont match with you....... its not that hard to comprehend.
2018-12-06 23:07
you seriously overrate trust factor considering people with low hours could match with players that have been playing for years in the past. prime also devalued as all the current accounts got promoted to prime. and you mention only mm... this will affect everything else including faceit. guess everyone is forced to play mm now?

yeah but not if you cheat, you will get banned before you get prime anyways
2018-12-06 23:11
Depends on what cheat are you using. You don't need to go full tilt and then ez prime.
2018-12-06 23:18
in that case nothing has really changed then, f2p or not.
2018-12-06 23:19
Maybe yes maybe not. We need some time to see what will happen with cs go mm etc. On the other hand there will be many kids to rekt on mm rn =D
2018-12-06 23:22
you won't match up with new accounts anyway since your trust factor is much higher, and alsy you have prime
2018-12-06 23:23
valve only does ban waves 1 time every couple months, more than enough time to cheat to level 21, remember you level a lot faster when you aimbot everyone down

that all of 3rd party competetive sites like faceit, pvpro, esea and etc. will be useless. this prime status shit will only work on matchmaking which means anyone will be able to cheat on cs especially on 3rd party websites. ---> valve forcing us to play on their shitty 64 tick servers

2018-12-07 11:00
Well, on the other hand the game has pretty much been standing still the last 2-3 years. Would be nice with more players, more prize money and more prestige in the professional scene.
2018-12-07 11:51
the bigger prize money is what fucked up the pro scene in the first place
2018-12-07 12:02
all the new players will be 100% cheaters, everyone who isnt cheater will delete game after getting aimbot wallbanged 20 times in their first casual game
2018-12-07 12:03
All new players wont be Prime though.
2018-12-07 13:40
exactly, so every one of them that isnt cheating will quit after a few minutes of getting wallbang aimbotted by cheaters in their first game of casual
2018-12-07 13:40
Sounds like you have a very narrow view on the update. It hasn't even been out for a day.
2018-12-07 13:48
i have some experience. i am a programmer, i understand how this kind of system works. as soon as valve implemented prime MM, i said it would kill the game. because since prime, every new player is playing against cheaters every match until they get lvl 21, and they will quit. without new players coming in, the game will die. i have watched many fps games die, battlefield, cod, most times its because the devs fucked up and took the game in the wrong direction, then it just takes a while until 99% of community is cheating and its impossible to have fun any more. csgo is currently almost at the end of the road.
2018-12-07 13:52
i dont need to play the game or anything to understand what will happen, i only read the patch notes, it can only go 1 way from here: more and more cheaters and no new players = dead game.
2018-12-07 13:53
And I don't need to play the game to understand that CS:GO are going to get bigger than ever, and that the ones that are interested in playing more fair will buy Prime.
2018-12-07 13:55
put yourself in this position: you install the game for free to try it out, and first game get placed in a non prime game of casual on dust2 with 90% cheaters. you get aimbot wallbang headshot every time if you try to cross to B. if you go short or long you get prefire headshot. at this point either you immediately delete the game and go back to playing fortnite, or you will try again, maybe a couple times, again meet only blatant cheaters, and delete the game eventually. why would anyone who has that experience for free even consider paying for this game? its not reasonable to expect that, or that ppl would play against spinbotters for weeks to grind to lvl 21
2018-12-07 13:57
im really sorry, i know how you will feel soon, its how i felt when cod died. but it wont get any better if you lie to yourself about it. just accept and move on.
2018-12-07 13:58
I can bet you my right arm that CS:GO are going to get bigger than ever, and that's the only thing that matters, because the only thing that is going to guarantee that this game is going to die is that it doesn't evolve. If they would only keep releasing minor updates together with new operations, this game wouldn't survive for long.

Okay did every game studio just decide "Hey lets just all fuck up at once so people don't know who to be angry at!" Jesus fucking christ, as if the game isn't already cheater riddled enough.

Dude, read, players who bought before this release now have Prime status and are matched with Prime players only, if you want to play with them as a Free player you have to buy the Prime "membership".

All non-prime cheaters got prime for free and now they are able to ruin your game in any moment. That sucks. I think this is the end of my adventure in CS:GO. Back to 1.6 Boyz!

2018-12-06 23:59
Ye but now if someone gets banned on faceit all he needs is create new email and new csgo acc for free. Before this you had to own another csgo copy (which means cheater always had to pay minimum 15$ to play faceit again). Non-premium faceit is gonna be literally hell to play and in premium there is gonna be like cheater in every 3-4 games because all they need is buy month subscription for 5$

First they come with Artifact, a paid card game where you have to buy cards, and now this. What is happening volvo? Too much dope, hum? Now they'll put all their efforts on the BR shit to attract new players, and we vintage cs players will just be forgotten. I needed to stop playing a little bit, anyway, so thanks for killing my all time favourite game.

Everybody has been upgraded to prime? WHAT THE FUCK IS THE MEANING OF PRIME THEN!?
2018-12-06 23:32
it never meant anything, just that you played the game for a couple hours and gave valve a phone number. it was a joke from day 1.
2018-12-07 11:10
You're missing the point. People wouldnt get prime on their cheating accounts because then their main would get linked to their off accounts, and so if they were to get vac banned on their off account their main would also get banned. That prevented people from having prime on their cheating account and kept prime more clean.
2018-12-07 18:04
youre missing the point that getting spare sim cards has never been an issue, and if you register each prime account to a different number, they will not be linked cheaters go to great lengths to ensure they can cheat as they want to, they buy dozens of accounts in steam sales, and they can get multiple sim cards to get prime. there is a large incentive to get prime as a cheater because you will be matched against slightly less (blatant) cheaters, and its not like valve will ask you to confirm your phone number every week, you just link it once and then you can throw the sim away

2018-12-06 23:59
why should it be easier for cheater now ? all CURRENT players are prime now, because they have paid. it`s absolutly normal to upgrade existing profiles if games go ftp, anything else is a big fuck for the customers who paid. and the last thing which kept hackers away from csgo were the 3$ for a key, which most hackers bought years ago in big bundles. BR: stop cry, it`s a fun mod release without beta phase. what means that a lot of things will change during the next weeks when the data and feedback is there. overall, this update is a clear signal that they are working on a new CS
2018-12-07 00:02
before they had to pay for account, now its free, so millions of kiddies around the world will download something from aimware.net, make free account, and start cheating on the same day, without buying anything years in advance. if you dont think cheaters will increase by a huge amount you are kidding yourself
2018-12-07 11:14
Update okay free to play okay but only battle Royale mode if u want to play competitive they have to pay 13 Euro that's will be cool and don't upgrade all to prime....

It is clearly time for a gameplay change inside CSGO and Valve brings in a new gameplay. Why still complain about it? If you don't want a lot of hackers then play Prime. CSGO is made free because they feel that the player base is getting lower and they need to make the game affordable. Overall in my opinion, it is a good update.

Its getting lower cause lots of turks and russins using cheat in csgo they need fix this part not free to play it
2018-12-07 01:06
I believe this is the problem in almost most games no matter if it is Battle Royale or FPS or other type of games. I think that they need to be more responsive to the reports they receive such as griefing, abusive voice chat and abusive text chat. It would be very useful
2018-12-07 06:15
other shooters seriously have at least10x less cheaters than csgo
2018-12-07 11:16
I think it is because this game is skill-dependent which makes more people (who are noob or bored with the game) starts to cheat inside this game. I personally have never tried other FPS games in laptop but I have tried playing Black Ops 2 in console and I believe it isn't as skill-dependent as CSGO. (This is in my opinion and I maybe a bit delusional with my opinion). It is actually up to the game you are talking about. If it is a game like Call of Duty, I wouldn't think a cheater wants to cheat in the game because it is expensive as hell while CS was only Rp 97000-ish (equivalent to $6.50 - $7) which is relatively cheap. If people in hltv still try to complain about VACnet, I would like to ask them to be a valve employee and try to ban all the cheaters available inside the game because Valve is certainly working hard to develop their anti cheat and as the anti cheat grow, the cheat itself tries to make itself not detectable to VACnet which gives them harder time to find those hackers. I respect Valve with their hard work given to develop anti cheat for us.
2018-12-07 14:00
in cod, i could win against ppl who had aimbot or wallhacks. just by clicking faster. if they have both aim and walls or aim and trigger, then it wasnt possible. in csgo, if your enemy has aimbot or wh, you will lose. he will just win every 1v1 fight with a lucky headshot or a lucky timing.

2018-12-07 01:25
I'm not saying that non-prime has no hackers but there will be less hackers inside non-prime than prime. The idea of making the game free is to bring in new players into the game and it is not wrong to do. Valve wants to make CS alive again by making it free and new mode. Just stop criticising Valve for your own ego. You not liking the update doesn't mean that this update is shit.

2018-12-07 06:07
Are people on this website daft/silver? They're acting like any account that didn't have the ability to become prime will now magically get prime, which isn't the case what-so-ever, so players coming in from F2P aren't going to be in Prime matches- the Prime FAQ answers all of this. You'll still have to pay as well as have a phone number associated with the account to play Prime- Nothing has changed and there won't be an abundance of hackers because of this update. Also BR is stupid, but with the game becoming F2P I can see why Valve would take this direction. It's a stupid addition that I don't agree with, but it'll only get more players (most likely younger players riding the BR bandwagon) to play CS and possibly stick with the regular part of the game.
2018-12-07 01:09
everyone who bought the game before today got prime. every cheater with lvl 3 playing in casual can now just queue for prime mm
2018-12-07 11:17
So this game is basically ruined now. FaceIT is going to get fucked, Global Prime MM is now impossible to play because every single player is cheating. Oh, and the BR mode is fucking garbage.

2018-12-07 02:14
LMAO no its not even than that.. the BR mode is optional. You know ? like Wingman ? and Arms Race, Demolition.. casual.. deathmatch.. custom maps etc. its all fucking OPTIONAL what a bunch of retards Yes F2P is a concern for cheaters, but thats all. Though its not a game problem, its the fact you are on a remote PC over the internet lol. 100% cheat detection is categorically IMPOSSIBLE without VAC resorting to methods that end up crippling the PC completely, or the luxury of LAN security protocols. (actually even then, VAC could run the most resource heavy verification and heuristic scanning etc, and it'd be beatable just by the cheat software being sophisticated enough and installed before Steam) Plenty of cheaters in every online game that has people.. so.. *shrug* good riddance ? if all the criers fuck off, less people less incentive to cheat. Most cheaters are just assholes who enjoy annoying others and will move onto a more populated game lol
2018-12-07 07:24
software anticheat on lan is fucking retarded. waste of money. you control the environment, just dont let players plug anything in, dont give them internet access, and no one can cheat on lan. all this lan software AC bullshit is just secuity theater to distract you from the fact that there are no proper physical measures taken to prevent cheats from being loaded.
2018-12-07 11:19
Exactly, as I have said many times if it was properly administrated a LAN would be 100% cheatproof simply by proper security protocols, system and domain policy, and proper control of the human element eg cameras, redundancy in admins responsible for overseeing players/PC's etc People who say cheating on LAN is easy just use this memory stick or hide it in mouse firmware are just spouting bs they heard from some previous moron. Nice to see someone else is not a moron, props to you lol. Yet to be proven wrong, if its so easy lay it out proof of concept every detail including how to get around ACL's, aka how to elevate privileges without paying 90K on the black market for a 0 day local priv exploit etc. Even then.. not much good if they have to put it on the PC after you set ACLs or before - meaning soon it will be sitting there in the SSD image forever, easily spotted by comparing that image to the base system image before user specific customization.. easy peasy for very basic forensic software lol. Noone can provide PoC without it being like "somehow taking the PC in the back room for 5 minutes and opening it just before the match and then again right after winning" Even though it wouldnt be an attack vector with other layers like ACL I would still have front USB not plugged into motherboard etc.. tape over ones that arent in use, its easy as hell to verify peoples drivers so checking and then letting them install everything the day before, then make the BEFORE image No problem letting them have internet access btw, its not hard to lock down the PC when all it has to do is run CSGO. Deny the limited priv user access to write files anywhere etc. Network admin can just allow SYSTEM and Administrators etc etc.. anyone with a clue could do it just have to be methodical and look at the problem from the attacker side. Security is about layers and finding ways any layer can be weakened or broken, and adding redundancy Anyway.. I guess we just let people be morons its their right :)
2018-12-07 11:56
>easy peasy for very basic forensic software lol. implying tournaments use this software. they might use it when their AC detects word.exe, after they get an alert, but they will not be preventively scanning all the images of every pc in between matches, that would be work. if people wanted to do work, they wouldnt work in esports. theyd get a secure job. so, as long as people use a private cheat that is undetected, i very much doubt anyone would find it in those systems. they are currently not even using keyloggers etc afaik. very basic measures are being deliberately ignored, and what seems to me is the only valid reason for that is the tournament orgs maintaining plausible deniability, if they dont find out whether people are cheating, its not their problem. also i would like if you watched this video if you dont know it yet youtu.be/drrGTxsYhv4 of course as you said it is a bit more complicated than just plugging in your phone or downloading a .exe file, if at least the organisers set up the windows install right, unless you use zero days or other very expensive methods. and the org could check all those SSDs, in between matches. i just seriously suspect that thats too much work for them and they are content just providing viewers the illusion of security. security theater. i have 0 reason to believe that any tier 1 tourneys are trying harder than MLG was to stop people from cheating, like, if they were, surely hltv would write an article about it or something, there has been 0 info on anti cheat measures since 2015. tournament orgs should be flaunting that its not possible to cheat at their tournament, with all the measures they have taken. there are enough ppl who think like me that we have a serious cheating issue, so it should result in higher viewer numbers if a tournament made more effort to be clean, no?
2018-12-07 12:15
it might be no problem to give players internet access if you lock everything down, but i see no reason to open those attack vectors in the first place. players dont need internet access to play a lan game. they only need to connect to the game and ts server on lan. what do they need it for, to browse hltv in between games?
2018-12-07 12:15
Yeah easy af firewalling off everything but Steam content servers so no VAC auth errors, not sure of all the details on that but very easy to work out and implement. Now that I think of that point, LOL VAC ISN'T EVEN NEEDED ON LAN why the fuck do you wanna try to detect something that could have gotten on the PC ? if something was allowed to do so its gg and VAC has no chance, the person who installed it has the upper hand. Physical access to a PC means you own the PC, and being allowed to install a ring0 driver is essentially the same thing with enough work. The latest generation of malware drivers are incredibly sophisticated and years ago I read an article when I was still in the biz, that leading AV vendors now predict eventually there will be malware that may be unremovable lol gl game developer when people like Kaspersky say that Those PCs are basically a console that only has one game. lol moronic to treat them as anything else
2018-12-07 12:50
people have been able to store cheat binaries in images in their steam gallery and in workshop maps.
2018-12-07 12:51
Yeah this was patched long ago I remember reading about the workshop file exploit and smh how just how lol. Getting the binary to load is another thing entirely if you currently did get it downloaded but yeah, best to be safe than very sorry, right :D
2018-12-07 12:54
i never heard about the gallery one being fixed, only the workshop route. to prevent players from putting binaries in image files valve would need to reencode all the screenshots and shit ppl upload
2018-12-07 12:56
Yeah not sure about that one, thanks for correcting. Good old steganography ! bloody image files. Of course it wont load automatically so moot point anyway as we agreed 3 more hours until the games fuuuuuuuuck
2018-12-07 13:09
agreed on the other point, preventing physical access is priority 1
2018-12-07 12:52
>I would still have front USB not plugged into motherboard etc.. imgur.com/a/MdYCu
2018-12-07 12:17
Haha yeah, but that SSD is imaged before customization, after player customization, and again after match. So even if someone slipped something in.. sleight of hand style.. quickly tried to install something a) privileges stops it or b) they have to remove it again after match without being seen fiddling with USB or in explorer.. the cheat loader if not already selfdeleted, the driver which is going to be difficult to do gracefully, wont be gone completely without a reboot - and ALL traces eg config file And if they value their career, somehow securewipe the HD sectors it was sitting on.. all without looking suspicious post victory lol If I was an org or especially if I worked at Valve there would need to be a very detailed security protocols paper submitted or good luck hosting a major. Every tournament org should be taking it on themselves to be proactive, giving some level of detail to the public about security measures. No need to reveal some of the specifics or all of the layers, just put it out there that they vet all hardware and drivers. They image the base system drive before cloning to every PC, then again after any user touches the keyboard or box.. with date/time/user filename etc.. and again after matches. Also clearly state there are standard security protocols and give some example info like no admin privs, USB autorun disabled, file write access is semi or very limited, point out they have admins here here here.. cameras here here here Have not seen any of that. Just that one article pre Katowice a couple of years back I think it was, which was not detailed enough for my liking, it left more questions than anything. But it is common knowledge the big orgs do systematic drive imaging for security as well as convenience. It'd just be nice if they made more effort so people didn't just to conclusions/conspiracy theories. Especially computer illiterate people who dont even know what different levels of privileges means ._. those people are the ones who tell all the other computer illiterate people how "easy" it is to cheat and VAC missing cheaters is proof blah blah. In this time we live in its amazing this is even possible, people should at least have enough education to know what they dont know shit about and what not to spread misinformation about :( though they generally arent thinking its more ego reactions. Its common for humans to justify their view with illogical bullshit, just look at flat earthers lol
2018-12-07 12:41
im pretty sure most flat earthers are just trying to meme i kinda agree with the ppl who say its easy to cheat. if tournament orgs actually backed up and looked in the system images as you say, then they could catch some players, im quite sure of it. but they dont look. so no one needs to put in effort to hide their traces. their career is never in any danger, because no one gets caught. as long as you manage to get it on the pc and execute it, and the software AC doesnt recognize your cheat, you are good to go.
2018-12-07 12:51
That's the problem IMO.. we don't know what they do, we dont even know if the players are logged in to limited or full priv accounts, we can only speculate. I am pretty confident the biggest orgs are well on top of it, anyone with a couple of basic IT certs can lock this shit down lol
2018-12-07 12:52
they can but its more profitable to let players like flusha shox coldzera simple aimbot on lan, its spectacular, more viewers, more ad money, more sticker money.
2018-12-07 12:53
Sounds way too much like conspiracy theory I'm out lol :D I have zero suspicion about any of them except one flusha clip which is more of a gee really than actual suspicion. The inferno B CT one where he checks left and fires at nothing definitely fits with low sens swipe left bang on keyboard which I've done myself plenty of times in less confined space. The 2 shot inferno one on A is circumstance at best IMHO, where the player appears behind.. it would take a long time to go through the logical process and discuss conscious/subconscious human data interpretation and so on but the first thing you have to do is look at some of those times where someone has 2 targets and gets caught trying to aim at both kinda thing, the subconscious decision making processes in play when that happens realtime, and the nuances of biology are a similar situation I would think. You can do things you didn't consciously decide to do, you can't explain it or even understand it yourself in most cases, its a very complicated subject and I am not a professional :D I just know enough to know you are not actually in control of your aim at all times. Its fascinating how much data you discard and never even know about, its just how the mind works. Too much data, there is a complex system in play when a human interpreting visual data - the brain discards countless amounts all day every day. One of the things that magicians leverage. Also Samurai, who knew something many actually don't - when you focus on something in particular your FOV narrows significantly, allowing stealth attacks when expertly understood. Anything someone will think about or be interested in will cause their eyes to betray them :D audio data is ofc a key trigger to be aware of when becoming a Samurai. GLHF
2018-12-07 13:05
i see simple aimbot all the time these days, his shaking is not natural, just like many other players who have suspicious shaking when enemies are jiggle peeking around edges. when the aimbot latches on and lets go, there is shaking.
2018-12-07 13:12
but besides this discussion which we cannot resolve with what you will probably say is a lack of evidence, i think we can agree its very suspicious that tournaments havent been taking basic anti cheat measures at their million dollar tournaments with players who get accused a lot.
2018-12-07 13:14
mm yeah if I wasnt lazy I would write to some of them, because it looks lazy but for all I know they have all the other bases covered and there is no need to go completely paranoid :D Lol Finally game to watch, nice chatting m8 have a good one
2018-12-07 16:13
if orgs wanted to prevent cheating, the measures we have been discussing to prevent physical access would have been implemented in 2015 or before, as soon as the pro cheating accusations really started. they are cheap simple and easy to take.
2018-12-07 12:54
I havent read whole dialogue but - if they really wanted to prevent At least 7/10 of cheaters joining the game - just make ID based system which would ask to confirm your identity by sending copy of your passport that would need to match a name on bank payment method when buying prime account. Thats so simple and effective. Cheaters would get wiped out in a matter of months and people would be scared to cheat cuz if u get banned once, it will be extremely difficult to join this premium queue again. Here’s a solution for you Valve, make it happen. :) oh wait sorry. This wont happen cuz all they want is money. No time for valve to so something about it.
2018-12-07 15:23
Problem with this method is that valve will never make it happen. :) This would wipe out half of players, cuz no cheater wants to play against a cheater and normal queue would be infested by them. Anyway
2018-12-07 15:36
cs is the most cheater infested shooter ive ever played, worse than cod. the game mechanics just make wallhacks and aimbot super effective

2018-12-07 02:24
This does nothing, anything Steam does on the client can be reverse engineered to make workarounds. By being ring0 and loaded before CSGO/Steam (a driver based rootkit called a bootkit) the cheat software can circumvent hardware ID checking by telling lies to VAC. The amount of effort to even attempt this battle makes it pointless for Valve. The innovations Valve are making are very intelligent though, and can be effective - given time of course. Anyone who is super serious about the game may have to cough up for premium services.. but if they're so serious it will be worth it ? with 128 tick and community of like minded, generally more mature people..

2018-12-07 02:27
I dont see a reason to play br a played a few games on it and Ring of elysium is free and the br gameplay is better imo only reason cs br is good is if someone is playing on bad hardware
2018-12-07 02:28
People who already own CSGO and people who will buy the upgrade (same price as CSGO was) will have Prime status and will only be matched together. This barely makes any difference apart from Casual and third party.
2018-12-07 02:34
barely any difference? go play a mm game now and count the aimbotters, i dare you.
2018-12-07 11:22
0 so far
2018-12-07 15:09
havent played for 2 years but i remember everyone complaining about cheaters though I almost never encountered any cheaters. You rarely spot any good players at all in mm. Go play at a third party platform and stop being mad.
2018-12-15 06:05
yeah i tried paying for faceit and big surprise people are still stupid there. its not worth the time. solo queue is just never fun. this game is dying. the community is shit now. i would have to find a regular group to play with, but i dont play regularly myself.
2018-12-15 12:21
by the way the point was that every smurf and cheater now got prime and therefore it will make a difference in quality of mm matches
2018-12-15 12:22
idk about smurfs been global since 2013
2018-12-16 06:45

I wanted 128 tick with matchmaking and VAC re-haul. Free to play is fine with me for the community boost as long as its regulated. Making someone have to play casual cheating their balls off for a few hours just to ruin Prime Match Making games at level 21 is an absolute insult to long time players of the franchise. The patch took like 2 minutes to install... It couldn't have been that hard to do the things i mentioned as well...

2018-12-07 07:41
How has anything changed ? 5v5 competitive mode is still there you know.. noone is making you click anywhere else
2018-12-07 07:45
Which is irrelevant to what I said. I didn't argue that I was forced to play this mode, I said that Valve is on the path of losing the identity of CS, and I'm not interested in this path. Surely I'll continue playing 5v5 with my friends from time to time as long as there are enough people to queue against, but that's besides the point. The problem is not having a new mode, there have been new modes before (although it can be argued that it fragments the community if the mode doesn't attract enough new and consistent players, which is not as much of an issue with that one because of f2p). The problem is that this new mode is not in the spirit of CS unlike the previous ones, it's only here to follow a trend, and this f2p switch is very likely to drastically change the community of the game, which in turn will change what Valve has to do for the game, pushing further and further away from the core of what CS is (or was, depending on how you view things). I think that with this "new" stance from Valve, the population in standard 5v5 will only shrink in favor of other "trendy" modes, and that's not what I play CS for, I might as well install other games for that who will do a much better job at what they're actually about. They're trying to imitate other games when CS should on the contrary distinguish itself from other games to have its own identity. My best hope is that this attempt fails dramatically. After all, BR games have far more BR content than this small mode has, it's basically a few years late to the party with only one map, and the graphics are getting old as well, I doubt the f2p crowd will try that for more than a few weeks and then go back to the true BR games. The only question is whether Valve doubles down or acknowledges this failure (assuming it's a failure).
2018-12-07 08:29
third option: valve will do nothing as they usually do
2018-12-07 11:25
Regardless of whether you agree with Valve's decisions or not, I don't think it's a tenable position to argue that they usually do nothing.
2018-12-07 18:41
they do usually do nothing, are you from some alternate universe where valve has put a capable team on csgo?
2018-12-08 11:08
It's factual that they're not doing nothing, you can just look a the changelog to see that they're doing something regularly. Wether you like what they're doing or not is another thing entirely, but they're not doing nothing.
2018-12-08 17:56
mm dunno, i get your point but to me CS will always be the core concept of 5v5 competitive, team damage, full economy, boosting another player etc. This changes nothing, just like any other mode it is icing, not the cake But yeah.. Valve has their view of what the game is and their stance on the competitive mode and all the changes over the years is their responsibility alone. I see how it can be a concern with them adding this, I don't think they are trying to compete with other BR games at all.. just get more hours from CSGO lovers who dabble in BR because now they dont have to switch game ? And let BR players who maybe dabbled in CSGO, have a game conducive to their game preference/skillset but still with the unique CSGO mechanics.. BR and CS friends playing this (eventually) makes sense for more hours but without actually competing.. I like that they want to cater to us as much as possible :) as a BR noob I dont have any desire to put in serious time to get good at PUBG so I might end up playing a fair bit of this one day depending how the development progresses. It's a very rough draft copy for us to review IMHO, maybe they even said that on the site or FAQ, i dunno.. pretty obvious they will put in a lot of time to make it as good and fun as it can be for as many people as they can. I respect that a lot.. they're ironically Valve CORPORATION.. corporations are generally pure scum all about money for the execs :) Valve are a flat employee structure who care about quality software and happy customers. If they have enough money to build a ladder to the moon, so what we love their stuff lol I don't agree with them completely but I think they have brought more depth and versatility to the 5v5 game, like the recent economy update which was almost exactly what I've been yelling about for years.. but not at all how I would have done it. Now the early rounds of a half are even more crucial, there has always been this battle for economic control in the first 5 rounds or so.. I think they've kind of made it even harder for CT if anything, the SMG meta and this are opposing stances for the same situation, what do you do if you win the pistol, buy SMGs ! but if you are CT how do you manage round 2 now ? buy rifles and hope they bought ? buy SMGs and hope they didn't ? round 3 buy without a plant now, even round 2 buy with a plant ! there was always varying decisions based on risk and playstyle going on remember when prime SK used to buy 5 UMPs ? lol.. some teams would buy 2 rifles even 3 depending on map and so on. This just seems more difficult a situation, haven't really thought through it just seen enough games to ponder it a bit, but would be great to see a detailed breakdown of how the changes really play out in many situations - if anyone has done such a writeup out there let me know pls :D I guess I could just google Bottom line is I dunno ? we dunno.. time will tell how CSBR goes forward and how this new economy meta complexity evolves.. I'm just.. idk, not going to have a kneejerk negative opinion about any of it without more data ? always at least 2 sides to everything sorry for essay bro, peace
2018-12-07 12:16
I don't really disagree with the way they've treated 5v5, this is not an issue for me and given that they had to deal with a more casual player base than in 1.6 and Source, it's normal that they would include more casual aspects in it. They had a few clear fuckups like the revolver and the cz, but otherwise I think they managed their split between hard CS fans and casual new players quite well. This is different, switching to f2p and trying to attract the BR community feels like a desperate move to try to "fit in with the cool kids". The hypothesis that it's just to appeal to the part of the CS community who spends time on BR would make sense if there was no f2p switch, but with the f2p switch I think there's a deeper motive than that. If this succeeds, I think it means the game will hold a very decent portion of players who come from f2p BR, which are likely to have very different expectations for the game than the original CS players have. If it means that, then I don't see Valve ignoring this big part of the community, which means changing the game even further in that direction. I agree that the content itself is too new to be criticized too much, and that's fine by me, I don't care much about the content itself, I'm far more concerned with their intent (which, granted, means assuming a part of this intent because I don't work at Valve, but I think it's an educated assumption, not a blind one). Although I do respect Valve for their policies which have brought so much to gaming, whether in pure games or with their platform Steam, I do not trust them one moment for not doing purely business based decisions, and my suspicion is that this is one of them. We'll see, personally I think that if it succeeds Valve will mutate CS so much that it becomes barely recognizable. If it fails, well, I don't know. But I'm willing to be shown wrong by them. In fact I hope they prove me wrong. I always hope my concerns are wrong. All I know is that if I'm correct, I won't follow their lead because I would fundamentally disagree with their vision for CS.
2018-12-07 18:39
Yeah OK well said :) I'm mostly on the fence but lean to the side of Valve being good people and business decisions aren't huge motivation they're ridiculously successful anyway. Countless other companies would die to be in their position. Just their 5% cut of other virtual items sold on Community Market is fkn ridiculous amounts of money, let alone their keys/items and their 15% on sales of CSGO TF2 Dota2 and now Artifact stuff ? I literally think they could build a ramp out of cash to the moon one day. Pity they're privately owned and don't have to have public profit reports, I think a lot of people would be so blown away by their numbers. Just the feeling I get from what I know, the couple of guys I have talked to especially my account problems back when TF2 trading was huge, Tony aka drunkenf00l was a life saver and such a nice guy who went out of his way and was so helpful when I desperately added him on an alt account after having my account stolen in a series of social engineering attacks on Steam Support to gain access to big value item accounts in 2012. After I got the account back they somehow got it again but we were on it and tradebanned my account temp before they could login and get the (duped) items again :D The other guy was head of security and had a pretty big discussion with me via the forums, went above and beyond in service for some random user, listened to all my complaining about security protocols and lack of things like 2 factor auth, geo IP history as an indicator for account ownership and all the little things I bitched about. A bit after I got another PM where he told me about internal changes and account flagging, and eventually there has been that complete overhaul of support, and Steam Mobile Authenticator. The internal changes to how account ownership related support tickets were processed and the automation of certain things, along with safeguards really made me smile at a horrible feeling time back then. I would very silly to talk specifics but they came up with really intelligent solutions. And even put my home landline on my account just in case, as in if anyone ever tries to claim they own the account they can't actually make changes without confirming to the system they called my number in Australia :D like I said, above and beyond ! The fact there is very little hierarchy in the company says a lot to me also, basically just Gabe on top of one group of people who try to do top quality work, decide for themselves or in groups what to work on to be most efficient and useful etc.. not how corporations work at all.. sounds far more like a family from the info out there. And daddy GabeN lol But yeah very well said and it'd be foolish to just assume they're angelic etc and willing to burn money so other people are happy.. that does bring me to one last point though.. the Federal lawsuit they were facing was what forced them to stop letting all those scumbags make money off their IP and their resources.. all those trade bot accounts use resources day in day out for years and they didn't rock the boat right up to the end ? no action against those "businesses" but they were forced to take action or the feds would surely rule against them for facilitating unregulated gambling, even if unwillingly and being a clusterfuck of a thing to forcefully remove from their systems.. Not entirely community serving, yes gambling gave their game a boost, people watching games because they bet skins etc.. increases in income because of it were surely an obvious thing but I still find it hard to blame them.. they were always against PayPal or other money trading for their items and would not support people with 3rd party shit like that all the way back in TF2 days, in 2010. They really didn't want people to be able to make deals and then use their trading system to complete it.. so much so there was a forum thread about the future of item trading and economies in general, I posted a lot about it and how they should be eBay basically, making their system the place people could use money for items and taking a cut.. obviously they had already talked internally about possible options but were very active in the discussions and promised to deliver the best they could in a safe secure Valve way. Steam Community Market beta came out about 18 months later as a rough guess, and like eBay their platform is damn good for all involved, yes ? the key reason I used eBay as an example was exposure, at the time I was a very active buyer and seller and gave examples of how much I got for some items, how many views something.. lets say low demand obscure could get etc.. it would sit in a shopfront for years I bet.. classifieds or other ways to sell it were so inferior because of the massive potential audience, identical items on a small auction site have gone for tiny fractions of the price on eBay many times, have bought and resold some lol. Even sold some TF2 stuff on eBay for a while which was a bit rude of me I guess :D but damn was it easy ! and didn't have any chargebacks, met some very nice TF2 people and everyone was happy to just give money and get that item they wanted e.g Earbuds which were trading currency. No brainer to go the way they did, pity we couldn't persuade them to have some cashout type system.. imagine you could convert Steam wallet to Steam gift voucher codes and then sell those ? ah well :) too many issues to allow it, voucher resellers like PayPal sellers would just end up being a strain on their support team, far less than PayPal headaches but still essentially the same problem, allowing trading/sales outside of their control.. no way for them to verify who is the scammer and an angry customer hates Valve because of someone who is not Valve ? would not be fun. Lets just say.. not a good business decision :D And yeah money being stuck for Steam would increase buys/resales on Steam Market but thats the side effect not the root issue, surely. Easy to just point out how things make them more money but the motivation wasn't that.. the overallbetterforeveryone mentality is just sensible and good will never hurt anyone. The more people try to work together for overall good of us all, the better. Hurry up everyone, or do you wanna go extinct ? shoutout to Elon Musk as a person, idc about anything business related or some shit people might hate on about him, his JRE appearance told me all I need to know about who he is as a person, a shining example for humanity. He cares a lot about all the important problems we mostly all just ignore year after year. Things are too hard or someone elses problem etc.. most of us look out for number 1 and dont care about the next generation, time bombs of financial social and environmental issues etc etc. Yeah there are lots of others like him but the vast majority of people are the opposite and think dog eat dog is the smart way to live your life.. hurting other people is grade A plan lol.. yeah no.
