      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

The CS: GO community has been buzzing with CSGO Ak47 Skins excitement and intrigue over a new website counting down to the release of CS: GO for China. The game will be released and developed by Valve in conjunction with China's MMORPG developerPerfect World.

Perfect World is known for making games such as Neverwinter, Blacklight Retribution and Star Trek Online. In addition , and perhaps most importantly, Perfect Globe are already responsible for Valve’s other huge esports title, Dota 2, in China.

A press conference held on April 11th revealed a number of features that will be made available to Chinese players such as 64 tick official matchmaking servers along with different anti-cheat measures.

On top of the official servers, there will also be 3rd party services offering 128 tick rate servers, much like CEVO, FaceIt and ESEA in North America. The anti-cheating measures will include the requirement to link an Alipay account, a Chinese service tied to personal identification much like PayPal, in addition to Valve’s Anti-Cheat support.

In an effort to help players in their attempt to make a career in CS: GO, tournaments like Chinese Pro League (CPL), similar to NA’s ESL Pro Group (ESL), and City Elite Events will take place. Reddit on the CS: GO sub have also speculated that Valve will have to publicise the odds of getting each item in their case drops as per new Chinese regulations.

The website has a number of helpful tips and guides for new players such as the various game modes, the game’s different cases and ranks as well as the most recommended guns to use along with their brief descriptions. The website also gives a short history of the Counter-Strike series from the 1999 release all the way into the present day.

Esports Insider says: Expanding into China not only serves as a new market for Valve but also as a new source for professional talent. It will be fascinating to see how many Chinese professionals arrive on the international scene in the near future.
