Happy Birthday, CS:GO!

CS:GO is another year older! This year the CS:GO community has been incredibly busy, producing everything from custom maps to weapon designs, and generating the largest tournament prize pools in Counter-Strike history.

Your support led to last week’s record-shattering ESL-One Cologne 2014 CS:GO Championship, where over 409,000 viewers tuned in to watch the grand finals, and millions of unique viewers stopped by throughout the event.

It’s time to party. Help us celebrate by grabbing some friends and getting in the game!
