About Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Tournaments for money
When it comes to esports, there aren’t many games that contributed as much to its origins as the Counter Strike series, which is one of the oldest active multiplayer game series as well. Counter Strike: Global Offensive, or CS:GO, continues to be one of the most popular esports titles. The game, which in 2021 will probably run on an any PC, focuses on two teams – terrorists and counter-terrorists – trying to secure a location, defuse a bomb or rescue hostages. Counter Strike has been a classic ever since its conception as a Half Life mod, and has served as a point of reference for many other games later on, including the recently released and increasingly popular Valorant (which is arguably its biggest competition at the moment). The game went free-to-play in 2018 and its community continues to grow despite ongoing problems with cheaters and Valve’s inability or unwillingness to solve the issue. Regardless, Counter Strike is one of the most important series in the history of gaming, and CS:GO tournaments draw the attention of huge crowds.
