The popularity of eSports during the coronavirus outbreaks heads all records. Computer game tournaments did not have to be suspended this difficult time. In particular, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the legendary shooter game, makes fans happy with interesting matches and news every day.

We invite CS:GO fans and sports betting enthusiasts to follow the results of eTournaments online via the Scores 24 platform or application.

The latest developments around CS:GO

Despite the fact that the popular shooter game is loved by millions of gamers from all over the world, Valve, the CS:GO developer, is regularly criticized by game fans. The fact is that the developer does not really spoil the gaming community with official updates. However, in early June a long-awaited update came out, which managed to upset many gamers even more. 

Previously, CS:GO allowed users to receive prime accounts by fulfilling the in-game conditions. As prime players, gamers could win titles, medals, free skin chests, gain experience, participate in ratings-boosting matches, and activate items with bonuses. 

Now the prime account can only be purchased for $15, which certainly did not please the enthusiasts of shareware games. 

However, supporters of fair play were happy. They believe that now there will be fewer cheaters in prime matchmaking. Previously, dishonest gamers easily got themselves a prime account by continuing to cheat among prime players until being banned. And after that, they repeated this procedure endlessly. Now Valve will charge $15 for each eSports fraud, which will surely bring a lot of cheaters to their senses.

Interesting facts about eSports athletes

People who are not very much into computer games competitions often ask: how do eSports athletes train? How to join the team? How much do gamers earn? 

Let us answer briefly. E-Sports athletes train on their own until some team notices a tough player and invites him to their place. Basically, they do the same thing as CS:GO amateur players – they play the shooter game. However, professional gamers spend much more effort and time in order to bring their skills to the perfect level. 

Just like in many other sports disciplines, There are transfers in eSports. Players can change teams, often observing one rule only: transfers can be made between major tournaments. The current and future teams of the gamer discuss the financial issues of the transfer, after that the buyer pays the agreed amount and takes the player. 

The salary of top eSports athletes from the CIS countries amounts to $20,000 on average. And this is not only income from tournaments. Gamers can enter into advertising and sponsorship contracts, as well as to conduct paid streams.
