Counter-Strike Go now free to play, adds Battle Royale mode

That says that if you pay into it, you don't need to add a phone number. Only the rank 21 method requires you to add a phone.
Fair, but I don't see why they would remove this since it was already a function of being able to get Prime Status before this and remains for other scenarios

First few games I played were fun, but definitely not 'fast-paced' as they're touting it to be. You barely get any ammo and buying/delivering takes quite some time. I do like the idea of a more scaled back BR game though.

They should have made a new CS game and a propper 100 player BR mode. This looks so weird.
eh, they really shouldn't.BR started with smaller numbers than 18. The Culling originally had 16 and it was great. We don't need yet another 100 player BR, there already plenty filling that spot. Smaller <20 players BR has its place and it should work great with CSGO gameplay.

Playing it all I can think is, I wish they spent the time they did on this on something else
I would have preferred a 5v5 unranked casual gametype with the ranked ruleset. But aside from that, there isnt much the CSGO team could work on. New maps are usually taken care of by the community and the game itself is pretty solid right now.

Free to play? The smurfing was already so frustrating that I dropped the game, can’t even imagine the sweaties now!
What a fucking joke.

Okay. A small Battle Royale with counter strike gameplay actually sounds pretty fun.
Good to hear. Pretty much what my friends are saying. Sadly a bit busy at the moment to try. Longer term concerns are just seeing how the game copes with this Free to Play model combined with Prime status

Might be a cool take without the extra fluff. I do like the gun play in CS. Is Source 2.0 something they use yet, not that it would mean Valve make a bigger game, just wondering as small levels were a thing with Source.

At first I was like "Yay, I might play this again for the first time since what, middle school?"

And then I was like, "Isn't this game toxic af now? Isn't F2P going to make it worse? I'm good."
