Scammers Are Impersonating Popular Twitch Streamers

Scammers Are Impersonating Popular Twitch Streamers

Anybody can make an account on Twitch. It’s a quick, simple process that takes only a few minutes. You (a super villain, in this hypothetical scenario) might be wondering what’s to stop somebody from naming an account after a popular streamer and, say, scamming a bunch of people. Not much, it turns out.

Over the course of the past couple years, people have impersonated popular streamers across...

Steam Workshop Content Must Now Go Through An Approval Process

Steam Workshop Content Must Now Go Through An Approval Process

Valve has quietly changed the way the Steam Workshop handles new content and updates to existing content. Maps, weapons and other user-created items will now need to go through moderation and get approved before they can be downloaded by other players.

This was first spotted on the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive subreddit by PCGN. User TanookiSuit3 shared some screenshots showing the change...

Counter-Strike is one of the biggest competitive shooters on Earth, so of course, would-be cheaters flock to it like thieves to an Uncharted 4 delivery truck .

The Most Common Movement Mistakes In <i>Counter-Strike</i>

Some solid tips on movement and peeking angles. voo CSGO shows some of the mistakes new and even experienced players make a lot (strafing by using W too much for example) and how to fix them.

Checking angles and positions is indeed the key to become good, and no matter how popular CS:GO is, tricks like these aren’t common knowledge among new players.

Santorini is one of Counter-Strike’s most well-regarded recent maps. It’s attractive, well-balanced, and compact enough to create tense showdowns. How do you make a map that stands out in a Dust2-obsessed CSGO landscape? Like this.

Santorini creator Shawn “FMPONE” Snelling teamed up with Max Reiger to create a...

Valve recently brought the hammer down on custom Counter-Strike servers that don’t fall within a set of very specific guidelines. It’s a big change to the game’s ecosystem, and many players don’t think it’s for the better.

Christmas came early for Counter-Strike players in the form of a new battle royale mode with its own fun (albeit compact) map . Thanks to an Easter egg on that map, Portal fans think their Christmas might be coming, too. To this, Valve responded that no, there is no Santa Claus.

SteamedSteamed is dedicated to all things in and around Valve’s PC gaming service.  

It’s a big day for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Valve’s tactical shooter mainstay has gone free-to-play, and it’s added a battle royale mode called “Danger Zone.”

The change to free-to-play is pretty straightforward. The base game is now entirely free, giving players instant access to “all game modes,...

<i>CSGO </i>Skin Traders Dumping Their Inventories After Valve Announces New Rules

Despite Valve’s crackdown on CSGO gambling sites that use Steam in 2016, there’s still an active cosmetic skin trading (and yes, sometimes gambling) scene around the game. A recent set of trade limits from Valve, though, has skin lovers selling off their collections for fear that the scene is on its deathbed.

“CSGO is over!” has been the refrain of Counter-Strike skin buyers, sellers,...

How Esports Broadcasters Decide What You See

How Esports Broadcasters Decide What You See

Gunfire, spells, commentators talking a mile a minute, momentum shifts, plays you can literally miss by blinking: there’s so much going on during esports events that there’s hardly any time to spare a thought for what’s going on behind the scenes, let alone what’s happening right in front of your eyes.

Observers aren’t as immediately noticeable as commentators, but their role in esports...

Modder Creates PUBG-Style Mode In Counter-Strike

Modder Creates<i> PUBG</i>-Style Mode In <i>Counter-Strike</i>

Despite how different they are, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is, in some ways, the new CSGO. It’s the big Steam shooter du jour, and it’s stolen Counter-Strike’s realistic gun porn crown. But there’s one thing CSGO has CS-going for it that PUBG doesn’t: the ability to consume all other games, thanks to mods.

Go 4 The Kill is modder Kinsi’s take on the idea of a battle royale game in CSGO. The...

What Counter-Strike Mapmakers Think Of The New Dust2

What <i>Counter-Strike</i> Mapmakers Think Of The New Dust2

Valve has once again tampered with the holy grail of Counter-Strike maps, Dust2. Long considered a gold standard not just for CSGO, but for multiplayer maps in general, it’s very difficult to tangibly improve without accidentally knocking the overall synergy of the map out of balance. Has Valve succeeded this time? I asked a handful of prominent community mapmakers for their...

Oh how far we’ve come.

Turner Broadcasting is kicking off the spring Counter-Strike tournament in their eSports initiative, ELEAGUE, so they got someone as big as their ALL-CAPS LOGO to promote it: retired basketball player Shaquille O’Neal. Because sure, why not!

It’s actually a pretty funny video. Or at least, you know, a couple parts are funny. I liked when he had the cheese.

Changing Weather Puts New Spin On Classic <i>Counter-Strike</i> Maps 

Counter-Strike’s best maps are finely tuned staging grounds for battles of tactics, will, and hair-trigger reflexes. A slight change can have a tremendous impact on how they play. Even something as seemingly insignificant as the weather, as this mod demonstrates.

Valve Says They'll Start Cracking Down On Gambling Sites That Use Steam

During last week’s big Counter-Strike gambling scandal (and really just in general, where gambling is concerned), Valve remained conspicuously silent. Now, though, they’ve said they’re gonna start telling gambling sites to cease operations entirely.

In a statement on Steam, Valve business authority Erik Johnson wrote:

“These sites have basically pieced together their operations in two-part...
