A game isn't going to die because a scammy site is down, and because Valve finally put it's shit together.

CSGO didn't die when CoD and BFs were making a push, it didn't die when Overwatch released.

It won't die now.


The risk I took was calculated, but boy, am I bad at math.

Gambling sites are not scamming not all most of them are real and you cant compare cs go with overwatch and btf and cod

You're worried about the fact that skins' prices are going down.
And this is supposed to kill the game.

I still don't understand your reasoning.

You're right that not all gambling sites are scams, however people using CS:GO to gamble was actually illegal on so many levels. Players of the game whose countries either have age restrictions or outright bans on online gambling were having a backdoor opportunity into online betting. Valve were right to shut down the 23 sites involved in the online gambling associated with its game lest they receive a law suit.

I'm not going to comment on the gambling part, as I don't think your intention was to start a debate. I just wanted to say I'm sorry if the game ends up not being popular anymore, I know you've mentioned how much you enjoy this game and it really sucks when you can't play a game you love anymore or it becomes less popular and there's less people to play with. I hope if this happens you're able to find something else you love to play.

I doubt Counter Strike will die because of this. They've been a huge fps game for a decade and a half now and having these scumbag websites getting shut down is not going to kill a game like CS.

It's unfortunate when rogue admins and users mess up a legitimate gaming site. But this happens all over the internet, not just the supposedly shady/seedy parts of it. Hopefully things get resolved and the game won't become unpopular. If it does, I hope you find another outlet of entertainment.

csgo wont die because skin gambling was wiped out. I havent met one person anywhere that has quit for such a reason.

But yeah, it sucks you gotta either buy skins, keys, or wait of in game drops... but hey, its sucks. I know.
