It's not the most fun article. Below you will read about whether it is possible for CS:GO to switch to Source 2 and how it might end.

Source 2 launch: Goodbye CS:GO?

 

Switching to Source 2 may be the biggest disappointment for many players. There are many reasons for this, many factors. If Valve copes with this, CS:GO will gradually die. Valve doesn't want t repeat CS 1.6 and CS:GO case when they create a new game, but no one wants to switch to it because the old version is fantastic to play. Valve has to minimize risk, and all potential resentment. The official release date for CS:GO on Source 2 is unknown at the time of publication. Data engineer Aquarius said that the game developer is testing a version of a new engine in a public build. However, Valve has not yet reported on the update in the game. Cyber-sport.io prepared its position, explaining why CS:GO won't change even after Source 2 release.

CS:GO online statistics

Have you paid attention to online statistics in CS:GO? The current year was not some record year, the largest online was less than a million people. That is different from the record-breaking 2020 for CS:GO. At that time, an online record was set - 1.305.714 players. The positive growth dynamics at that moment continued for a very long time. Since 2012, every following year has set a new online record, and the community has grown larger. All this ended in 2020. It's not surprising if the online record will be broken after the game transitions to Source 2 because many players will want to look at the changes.

 

Source 2 change CS:GO

On the one hand, it's fantastic. It will give the impression that CS:GO is developing and the developers care about the community, but this will be a delusion. Most likely, many already guess what can change in CS: GO. For the average player, the changes will be invisible. After the transition to Source 2, many will not even notice this because, in the first place, this global change is made for developers. The graphic design of the game will remain the same. All textures, maps, weapons, and player models will not change.

 

Esports is what brings new players and fans to any organization. That is very important for Valve. If you change the game's physics, the geometry of the cards, weapons - it will be chaos. Esports players will need a lot of time to learn how to play after such an update. They will need more time to be ready for new tournaments. Thus, the company loses time, and time is money.

CS:GO downfall

After a new online record due to the transition to Source 2, the opposite effect will begin. CS:GO will start to die. Why? It will be driven by hype. Valve has been intriguing for five years with this update. Each player made their predictions about what would change in the game. Lots of news about it. Each video blogger fed their viewers with this information. It turns out that nothing will change for the players. Blow at Valve, who fooled their players with a bright picture, will kill this game. It will end in disappointment for those who have been waiting for this for five years.

Dota 2 and Source client

This game made the switch to Source 2 a long time ago, but it was still possible for fans to play the old version. Dozens of gamers played precisely the old one. At the same time, the transition to Source 2 itself was not much advertised, and the community did not have sky-high expectations. CS:GO has been feeding players flashy promises for five years, raising everyone's expectations. After the disappointment, the rebound effect will be pronounced.

Usually, the signature hero is the one you play the most. You know what to do on it in almost any situation, and you know how to play against counter picks and so on. And, of course, you have to enjoy this hero, which encourages you to play a bunch of games on him in a row. When I first entered Dota 2, my signature hero was Bloodseeker. I liked his mysterious clothes and strong abilities. For such an easy-to-use hero, he was pretty strong. Below I’ll tell you how I realized it.
