portal PC gamer notes that the official microblog of the network shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) explained the futility of players attempting to sneak into Counter-Strike 2’s limited test.
As a reminder, access to Counter-Strike 2 challenges is only available to CS:GO players. The lucky ones are chosen by “latest game time on official Valve servers, trust factor and Steam account status”.
Apparently, a non-zero percentage of players who didn’t get into Counter-Strike 2’s limited test with the first wave chose to trick the system and spend several (dozens) of hours in CS:GO to improve their chances at the increase qualification.
As it turns out, Valve has a very clear position “last season”. CS:GO user activity is considered only before the start of Counter-Strike 2 limited testing last week.
“Inactivity on the official matchmaking servers in CS:GO does not increase your chances of getting into the CS2 restricted test. The playing time scored is your playing time before the start of the restricted test.”valve cleared.
Counter-Strike 2 will feature updated maps, a teak structure, dynamic smoke from smoke grenades, backward compatibility with CS:GO items and new models for them, improvements in visuals and elements, interface and sound.
Counter-Strike 2 is scheduled for release in summer 2023. After the start of the limited test, the peak in online CS:GO exceeded one and a half million people for the first time – on March 26, 1,519,457 users were counted in the shooter.
