Looking back: This was CS:GO in
Even the players are human
Quite often in tournaments we’ve seen mind boggling plays coming out from the veterans of Counter-Strike, yet sometimes even they have moments that show they’re human just like us. Kenny ‘KennyS’ Schrub had a moment like that earlier this year where he might have been focussing a bit on the wrong part of his screen… .
These clips are easily missed, however, if you see the things coming out from the NA scene. There it seems like every match has a crazy highlight.
Bigger rosters, bigger wins
With some players of Astralis taking a temporary step back, it became more and more apparent how much of a strain competitive CS:GO can put on the players. This has since then transitioned into having the first rosters with six or more players. The team mainly benefitting from this seems to be Vitality, with the French organisation picking up Nabil ‘Nivera’ Benrlitom and putting him to good use in some of their victories.

This six man roster has not really caught on yet with other teams however. The costs that come with a CS:GO team are quite hefty and adding another player would mean yet another big paycheck to cover each month (and possibly even a buyout to get him on the team in the first place). Astralis themselves have had some players join and leave during the temporary absence of some of their players, yet have kept Lucas ‘Bubzkji’ Andersen as a sixth man. It seems unlikely many teams will adopt this form of bigger roster themselves, however with more success comes more money and possibly more players in the roster.
NiKo leaving FaZe
Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač has left FaZe Clan after a lengthy stay, joining up with his cousin in G2 Esports. Since joining the team Niko and G2 have been doing quite well, winning the first match against FURIA and beating some top teams after. The move in itself was quite shocking as NiKo had an all-star line-up around him.
This year however they did perform well but were unable to get wins consistently or even get into the Grand Final, often ending third. After a two month talk between the organisations a deal was signed and NiKo was able to embark on a new journey. Yet with the addition of a new player some teams still try to hold on to the regular roster size of five players, meaning that Audric ‘JaCkz’ Jug has been benched early December.
Cheering all over the world
Usually there’d be a clip in here somewhere of an international LAN where we’d celebrate the incredible win of a certain team. Yet with the pandemic still going on, only some online cheers were visible on the broadcasts.
Is the international scene dead at the moment? No not at all! Some American teams and players (both North and South American) have temporarily migrated to Europe to be able to compete against top teams and of course compete in high level tournaments. Some slightly lower ranked NA teams can’t afford the move but do sometimes have some interesting ‘home distractions’.
Million player milestone
When the pandemic reached concerning levels and multiple countries imposed lockdowns, gamers found more time to play their favourite titles and of course to hang out with their friends online. For the first time ever CS:GO reached over one million concurrent players, showing the game is far from dead with new milestones reached despite the game being eight years old in
What about highlights?
Just looking at the relatively lower clip views on the respective Twitch channels, it seems as if people are possibly missing the LAN vibe of cheering people as backing vocals for every clip. We’ve already given you some fun clips but it’s also time to show some Brazilian strength and (over)aggression. FURIA’s Andrei ‘arT’ Piovezan has really finetuned his W-holding skills and takes advantage of the open mid of Vertigo in the following clip against Team Liquid.
If you thought that was good, there is one thing you need to have seen this year and that is probably the most disgusting pistol ace ever shown on stream. It is to no surprise it comes from the prodigy himself, Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut.

Is CSGO really dying in ?
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has a unique player base that loves to hate the game. In the CSGO realm, comparison of Valves shooter with every new FPS game is a norm; facts are mostly irrelevant. Is CSGO dying?
Jabs and comments from the unversed were disregarded, but ex-CSGO professionals also added to the discussion. Most recently, Michael shroud Grzesiek jumped on the bandwagon by claiming CS is undeniably dying in one of his videos. Various esports maestros including gaming analyst pimp chipped in—the ex-professional player directed at a ceaseless bull session that follows CSGO everywhere.
G2s owner Carlos ocelote Rodriguez also disagreed with Shroud.
CSGO player count is thriving in

Released in July , with less than 2k active players, CSGO picked up the pace rather quickly. After a dwindling player base, the fps game managed to peak , concurrent players in , according to steamcharts. This breakthrough took five years, but unlike other fads, this game was here to stay.
Since , Valve’s GO has managed to break several records, crossing the one million mark in March of The iconic shift in player count could be attributed to the COVID situation. Many novice gamers unlocked the true potential of CSGO behind the locked doors during the pandemic. The game experienced a monumental rise in player count from April to December , gaining 27% more players.
Like any other game, CSGOs player count isnt always booming. The count dipped, but it always powered through the downturns.
CSGO VS the new games
Valorant is not CSGOs first adversary. The comparison police were on the rise in when PUBG was officially released. Despite belonging from a different genre, the game managed to eat up a considerable chunk of CSGOs player base. There were guns, action, scenery, and all the ingredients that CSGO had, but comparisons failed to diminish CSGOs loyal fan-base.
The players experimented with PUBG, but the absence of five versus five format, tactical play, and competitive energy sent the CSGO fans back to their home. The minor shift in the player count was re-fixed; the numbers rose to more than K concurrent players in January
Two years later, Apex Legends had to suffer the weight of comparisons. The game was widely different from Counter Strike in terms of graphics and genre, but imminent judgments followed.
Valorant is the new contender, and it has undoubtedly shaken some of what Valve created. It would be irrational to overlook the ramifications caused by Valorant, as numerous CS professionals have packed their bags and left for the animated world of Riots tactical shooter. However, the player base of CSGO didnt take many hits.

Months after the release of Valorant, CSGO gained 2% more players in August With more than K concurrent players in October, CSGOs player count is on the peak. More players continue to log in for a gaming experience that has created a massive universe of esports.
In terms of player count, has been the best year for Valve. The professional scene did suffer a bit, but pandemic cranked up the player base to eleven. With LANs return, Counter-Strike Global Offensive is expected to make and break new records.
The lively crowd, surroundings decked out in tech, and enemies sitting across from each other, are just a few key ingredients of a LAN tournament; ingredients that you cant possibly have in an online setting. Fans cant wait to fill up the Arenas once again, and comeback of LAN might tempt many inactive players to log back in to their steam accounts.

Most of all went to the accounting department, they rushed around the floors, all covered in soap, and even did not appear in smoking rooms. The department where Olga worked also got it - the commercial director popped in and, not seeing, in his opinion, due zeal, he. Burst out like a donkey, threatening all punishments, up to and including dismissal. The guys in the department tried to explain that they work like the damned, only that the computers do not smoke, but it was useless - he.
Was insane and did not want to listen to anything.
