Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) Esports

With over 20 years of competitive play, Counter-Strike is one of the most well-known and recognised first person shooters in the world. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) is the latest version of the game and is played professionally in major tournaments around the world.

Matches pit two teams of five against each other in a best-of-30 match. Essentially, in competitive play, players must purchase armor, weapons, defuse or rescue kits, and manage their in-game economy to maximise their chance of success and hold advantage over the opposing team.

The game has seen professional competitive play for the most part of a decade and over the years has matured into a fan-favourite eSport with a sprawling fan base. It’s growth in popularity is attributed to fine-tuned gameplay mechanics, a ruthless ranking system, and an unparalleled field for balanced team-based combat.
