Beginning tonight, we're hosting daily Counter-Strike: GO events on our server. Because why the hell not?
Our weeks-old, St. Louis -based CS:GO server has hosted lively Steam events about twice a week. We run custom maps exclusively because the community has somehow produced 1,000 of them for CS:GO since adding Steam Workshop support last month. I earmarked my early favorites in February, but new favorites have already emerged, like the cs_sauna remake.
How to join, in four extremely simple steps
- Join the PC Gamer Steam Group to be notified of events
- Subscribe to our CS:GO Steam Workshop map collection (this will auto-download and auto-update the maps we run on our server through Steam— MAXIMUM CONVENIENCE! )
- Join the server ("PC Gamer | The Psychedelic Den of Map Experimentation," IP: 188.8.131.52:27015) around 7 PM PST / 10 PM EST
- Have fun; be the kind of person you'd like to play games with
Thanks to GameServers for being a darn good server provider. If there's a config setting you'd like changed or a map you'd like to see in the rotation, just let me know or leave a comment on the Steam Workshop collection. Messages sent to firstname.lastname@example.org stir my spinal community antennae implant.
And yes, we know CS:GO isn't the only game in the universe. But we've got a good thing going there, and I'd rather do a slow roll-out of community funtimes than expand things too quickly. Look for more games and events to pop up throughout the year.
