Earlier today, Polish Counter-Strike team Virtus Pro earned $100,000 and the gold medal in the EMS Major Series One. The match, against Swedish side Ninjas in Pyjamas, was played in front of a raucous home crowd in the city of Katowice, Poland.

The players, the capacity crowd of 11,500, and the thousands playing the game around the world know it: 2014 is the year of Counter-Strike.

lol I have over 400hrs in it, I wish I would have tried this game a lot sooner, what an awesome and complete package, I have racked up a few hrs just learning with bots so far and watching streams and comp matches, had a few casual rounds but I like to know what I am doing before jumping in head first, Im no run and gunner so if ever become decent at this game will be through accuracy and playing smart and learning. I would say at this point is probably the best value for money game have ever bought.

I have about 150 hours with bots alone on both CSS and CSGO. It's definitely one reason why I'm fairly decent at the game today.

One point that I try to make to people who ask about CSGO, is that if you end up buying it and you don't like it, it was only $15 (3.74 on sale) and you didn't break the bank or anything, unlike you would with battlefield, being $50 and another $50 for premium.

Not to mention you get more support for your dollar. BF4 has been out almost a quarter of a year, give or take, and still has problems that have been persistent since launch. It also has an extremely SLOW dev team and EA/Dice are no good at making big decisions / changes. CS takes all this out of the equation with the workshop, let the players do the creative, and let the devs fix the problem. I couldn't agree more with the OP Who said 2014 is year of CS.

I wish Valve had the power to kill LoL with Dota2 and run the MOBA scene, but I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon, unfortunately.

EDIT: The price tag is a scam! Everybody here knows we've all spent more than $100 on this effin game ^^ thumb.gif

I was fortunate enough to have very few problems with bf4 outside of the now generic hit reg problems etc. Never played a Pc fps until Sept/12 and bf3, am 41 so was never really into fps, got more time on my hands and steadily it grew on me. Just sick of the cheap deaths in bf series, that you have no counter to or cant do anything about. In cs so far, even with bots it feels like I get killed for my own play if that makes any sense and to me that feels more satisfying. I had 1300hrs in bf3/4 and for a good slice of that was looking for something else that appeals, this ticks every box and would have happily paid a lot more for it. Also the community seems great which is an added bonus.

I know, it's sad really. I myself have spent $114 on in game items alone. But all of those purchases were completely optional.

For battlefield, premium is optional too, but when an expansion comes out you won't be able to play with your friends for a couple of weeks because you don't have that expansion or the premium service. The only thing even remotely close to premium in CSGO is the operations that come out, but those are only $3-$6 and you can still join your friends and play with them without purchasing it.

Agree with both of you ^

BF3/BF4 are not the "war/firefight sim" I wish they were. They are beautiful graphically, and have great campaigns, but unfortunately the multiplayer (the heart of any real FPS) is gimmicky as hell. And I totally see what you are saying about the death/reg comparison. In CS, they mechanics of guns are solid, they are the foundation of the game and totally fundamental. In BF4, it seems like something that is often patched / changed. This brings up tons of problems in multiplayer and totally destroys any form of competitive play.

As far the money thing goes -- I have over $100 spent, but I realize now, that is "steam money" and afik there is no real way to check how much money you spend from your debit card per game. I'm sure you can lookup all the purchases from the account -- but that wouldn't help me since I've bought ~20 games off my debit card as well.

After watching Katowice, I have a strong feeling that CS is the future of esports. LoL, SC2, and Dota2 (not really though) come in as close competition, but there is just so much to be done with CS. The presentation is truly amazing, and the people working for the events are overqualified. My example of this is the older american caster, I think his name is Scoots? But when I first starting watching CS competitions I was watching ESL and thought; who is this old guy? I did research on him and here's the deal -- He was an ex CS player, don't know if he was pro/competitive or not, but he's a vet. He also was a regional event manager for Coca-Cola in the US... wait, WHAT!?! This guy is not only a trained / enterprise event manager, he's a CS player as well. I think that totally changes the traditional outlook of these PC nerds at events. They got some great talent, and have been putting on AMAZING events. I am very excited to see what more 2014 will bring ^^

Got a question about drops.

If I were to host a dedi and me and my friends play on it passworded would you get drops? Or do you have to use the Valve servers for that? Just wondering as we rarely play against anyone else, rather just play against each other for a laugh, but it would be nice if we could get some drops while doing so.

On another note, really enjoyed watching EMS One, didn't get a drop, but it was really entertaining with some super close matches. sNax's move against NiP that's posted further up just topped it off.

You get it on non-valve servers (3rd party host) so you should when hosting yourself. Id imagine theres a console command (google) so check its on.
