Thread: CS:GO Goes F2P

    CS:GO Goes F2P

    So CS:GO is F2P now and have "prime status" for people who already owned the game or want to drop $15 to get it. They also added an 18 player battle royale mode called Danger Zone.

    Man, I remember when Valve wasn't showing up late to the party on industry trends, those were good times.

    Those with Prime Status are entitled to a free weapon skin
    ...nevermind

    edit -- ok I poked around and it turns out, in addition to said free weapon skin, you only play with other Prime Status players and have access to Prime-exclusive drops.
    Still kind of meh, but I guess what else are they going to offer in a game like CS?

    Only play with other prime status players? Feels like they know people are gonna hack the hell out of the game now that it's f2p...and they know there is less hacking when it has a pricetag....

    Prime existed long before this, and people hacked the hell out of the game long before this.

    Doesn't really have much to do with it being F2P.

    Being completely free only opens up things worse...get banned? Just make a new account! No money required!

    money was never a problem especially as you have to buy hack subscription i the first place

    Normally, I wouldn't care. But it seems to be fairly easy to cheat in CS:GO, at least before hackers would have to drop money for each account they hacked on.
