CS:GO eSports History


Counter-Strike is probably the most popular multiplayer FPS franchise ever. It was first released in 1999 as a beta version and CS 1.6 was published in 2003. Counter-Strike: Source wasn’t a likable adaptation and the community rejected it. In 2012 Counter-Strike: Global offensive was released and it flourished. With many years of patches we heave the current CS we love to watch. CS:GO eSports is now one of the largest in the world.

The very first CS:GO major was in 2013, it was DreamHack in Sweden and Fnatic took the champions title on their home turf, though the runner-ups were also Swedish. The prize pool for the first major was surprisingly high, $250,000. This was a huge breakthrough for CS:GO eSports ,as a whole, because it meant that pro players can make a living off playing professionally. Today we see Major events with prize pools of $1 million and with more exposure, it’s sure to rise.

CS:GO is a competitive multiplayer first-person shooter video game. The game pits two teams against each other: Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists. Both sides are tasked with eliminating the other while also completing separate objectives. The Terrorists must plant the bomb, while the Counter-Terrorists must either prevent the bomb from being planted or defuse the bomb if the Terrorists manage to plant it. Since there are two teams in CS:GO eSports matches there will be fans that cheer for both sides. The winner is the team that wins 16 rounds first, although sometimes the length of a match is extended.
