I don’t think anyone’s ever looked at Counter-Strike and said, “Man, I really wish that was a fighting game,” but Chris Le’s video might change some minds. It re-imagines CSGO as a hyper over-the-top fighter with juggle combos, supers, and even an announcer. No, it’s not and probably never will be playable, but it’s…
Fans were excited about the prospect of a Team Liquid upset on home soil after the squad’s triumphant run leading up to the ESL One New York grand finals, but Europe’s FaZe Clan had other plans.
In its first ever action against individual influencers, the FTC has ordered that Trevor “TmarTn” Martin and Thomas “Syndicate” Cassell, the two ringleaders of the CSGO Lotto controversy that shook the CSGO gambling scene to its core, “clearly and conspicuously disclose” material connections next time. So basically,…
Last July, esports organization ESL lifted the lifetime ban on tournament participation from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players who had been caught cheating or participating in match-fixing schemes. The new sanctions now call for a two-year ban on cheaters and a five-year ban on match fixers, with the potential…
The folks behind EasyAntiCheat, a service that stops people from cheating in video games, deal with one of the messiest issues in the medium. People often feel that anyone caught breaking the rules should be punished severely, but you don’t always know why someone cheated. That’s where things get dicey.
That’s the question Clicky Crisp ask in this video. Then answer, in a way that makes me wish this was actually the way you played this video game.
On October 9, 2016, Team Argentina placed second in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive World Championships, winning $20,000. But months later, they still haven’t seen the money, and other teams who competed and won prizes say they haven’t been paid either.
There have been a number of great matches at the event, and Cloud9's push to the grand finals has fans hyped, but nothing will top this guy’s bold decision to carry a shitload of beers back to his seat all at once.
Few photos from the forum ages of online gaming live in greater infamy than one of what appears to be a human duct taped to the ceiling of a dimly lit basement, his arms reaching out to lightly graze the keys of a Dell mechanical keyboard.
Pop quiz! Is Counter-Strike: A) a squad-based tactical shooter that pits terrorists against counter-terrorists or B) a fighting game about chickens whose eyes are alight with Kentucky fried fury? Like most questions in article ledes, that one was entirely rhetorical. Thanks to mods, either option is correct.
Typically, esports stages don’t get much more elaborate than a big screen, some colorful lights, and maybe a smoke machine for effect. Over the weekend, Republic Of Gamers decided to one-up everybody with a “stage” suspended from vertigo-inducing heights.
In recent times, official in-game Counter-Strike events—Operations, as they’re known—have grown rare. Valve only created/curated one in all of 2016. Today, though, without any real warning, they’ve kicked off a new one. It’s called Operation Hydra.
Not everyone who watches the Super Bowl plays football, and it turns out the same is true for the League of Legends World Championship. According to research done by analytics firm Newzoo, 42 percent of esports viewers surveyed do not actually play the games they watch.
Vanessa Arteaga had been playing fighting games since she was a child, long before she became one of the highest-paid women in competitive gaming history—but her tens of thousands in winnings still pale in comparison to the millions that her male peers have made in competitive gaming in the years since.
UPDATE 5/9/17 12:00 PM: This story seems to have been based on a hoax designed to get BuzzFeed and, by extension, other sites to publish an inaccurate news article. Sly Buehl Rigilio is quoted in a new article on Infowars saying that he and his friends posed as trans women to trick BuzzFeed “for the laughs.”
This is what happens after you shout “Fuck you all, god save the queen” to a crowd full of Aussie Counter-Strike fans.
The hierarchy of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gets a shakeup at the IEM XII Championship in Sydney, Australia as the European powerhouses make room for the resurgence of South America’s SK Gaming. Even Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač, bought earlier this year for $500,000, couldn’t save FaZe Clan.
One year ago, popular streamer Jaryd “Summit1g” Lazar dropped the proverbial ball off a cliff when, while subbing on a pro CSGO team, he managed to lose a round he’d basically won by walking into his own molotov.
