CS:GO now has a subscription service providing higher participant stats
Once I used to compete in Counter-Strike 1.6 tournaments, I might accomplish that with a print-out of the map we have been taking part in taped to the wall by my monitor. In the present day’s Counter-Strike: International Offensive gamers go a number of steps additional within the pursuit of being higher at clicking on heads than the opposite staff.
To help them, Valve have launched a brand new subscription service known as CS:GO 360 Stats. For $1 a month, gamers get entry to match stats from their Aggressive, Premier and Wingman sport mode matches.
Valve quietly introduced the service as a part of the newest launch notes. It is mild on element, however a FAQ has a bit of extra. You’ll be able to signal as much as the service in-game, and solely matches you play whereas your subscription is lively have their stats recorded.
It isn’t clear to me how a lot profit this gives to gamers over and above free providers already accessible. For instance, csgostats.gg and scope.gg provide related stats for free of charge, when you can add demo recordsdata to Leetify to have them analysed by an AI.
There’s a related official subscription service for Dota 2, known as Dota+, however it gives much more than stats (and prices extra, at $4 a month). Perhaps CS:GO 360 Stats is a toe within the water and the subscription, or the stats, will develop in time. Though proper now the CS:GO neighborhood is generally simply involved Valve are going to compete by killing off all these free stats web sites by way of limiting their API.
The stat service is not the one change within the newest replace. The hen fashions have additionally acquired a visible improve, and on traditional map Nuke, somebody has “Centered a lamp that was bugging me”.
