Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a multi-player game between two teams. Half of the match is played for more than 15 rounds and the team with 16 wins. To win a round (and earn a point), a team must kill all members of the opposing team and / or complete separate Map targets.
Counter-Strike and csgoroll , Minh Le and Jess Cliffe were formed by two students in 1999 as a mode for the popular FPS game Half-Life. The game was followed by Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, developed by Turtle Rock Studios and released in 2004. In the same year, Valve released the original game remake, Counter-Strike: Source.
During this period, the eSports scenes were divided between the original Counter-Strike and Counter-Strike: Source csgorol, both of which were great games on their own. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was published in 2012 and signed a smart step. The goal was to combine both scenes for the first time. The game was met with cautious optimism on the market, but Valve increased its popularity while the game was regularly updated.
The ESports scene continued to grow and there were many major contests (FACEIT, ECS, ELEAGUE and ESL Pro League). The most prestigious tournament was the CS: GO Major, which was managed by Valve and had a record pool of 1 million dollars in the past and a record-breaking number in the twitch.
