  • Valve announces to shut down CS:GO trading on OPSkins

    No Comments
    OPSkins shut down by ValveThe seven-day trading restriction has caused discontent among many players. Especially those who liked to do skin trading wanted Valve to take back the changes. To bypass the lock, OPSkins, one of the largest marketplaces for skin trading, has introduced a new feature that can bypass this trade barrier just a few days ago. The so-called "ExpressTrade" allowed users to trade their items without waiting and therefore faster than in the Steam Market. However, Valve has now announced in a blog post that this feature violates their terms and conditions and that they will shut down all OPSkins Bots by...

We see two entraces to the spot and probably there is a third one when climbing the straw bales, just like in the old version. The entrace from tunnels however has become a little bit more narrow, which could make it harder for the Terrorists to enter the spot....

    No Comments
    CS:GO GlockValve continues it's work on balance changes for pistols in CS:GO. In the latest "1.36.0.3-rc1"update, which is now live on the beta servers, balance changes have been applied to the Glock and the P250, in order to emphasize "skillful use of the weapons".

  • 118 banned cheaters in only 52 matches!

    No Comments
    cheaterIt's almost unbelievable what reddit user "caracholo" shows us in the statistics of his last 52 matchmaking games before he got the "Prime" status. In these 52 matches, 118 players got banned by VAC afterwards! This means that you have roughly two cheaters per match and these are only the numbers of those who got caught by VAC. Although it is to be noted that these numbers only apply to non-Prime matchmaking. To play Prime matchmaking you need to authenticate your steam account by adding your telephone number, which you can only do once. This makes it way harder for cheaters...
