[Kotaku] Valve's Decision To Charge For Limited-Use Sprays In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Infuriates Fans

The latest patch for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive brings back a long absent feature: graffiti and sprays. They are now a consumable item that can be purchased. Fans lobbying for their return are displeased to say the least.

Sprays have existed in Valve based shooters as far back as the original Team Fortress Classic and Counter-Strike. Players could even upload their own designs or pictures. The feature lasted all the way up to Counter-Strike: Source before being removed in Global Offensive.

Valve Charging for spray in cs:go game seems like worse then ea access.

Yes, I miss the times when I can pay for an overwhelming advantage in actual game play. /s

Fix the advantage issues with it (you can use them like a one-way window) and I have no serious problem with it. You don't have to buy them, and losing the ability to use sprays hasn't really mattered until now, now that they're back but monetized. It's an obvious money grab but not one you have (or need) to participate in.

Except Origin Access is actually good. You can abuse it to pay less for games.

Just a PSA.

This is so Valve right now...

They'll make the argument that they're doing a service to the community by keeping the community clean of vulgar sprays. This of course doesn't take into consideration the in game chat being comprised of string of words that can only be found on CSGO or on a 4chan / reddit message board.

This is a new low for valve and their money grubbing ways

That's it, just bring back 1.6 and Source where we were able to do skin mods and sprays without paying.

That feeling when you're old enough to remember this. Its getting more and more difficult to defend this company.

I guess Valve felt Gabe's money pool was a little too low. Valve is getting complacent. Yeeeesh.

Straight up terrible. Valve should be ashamed.
