CS:GO exceeds 100 million euros in prizes
The most popular shooter in history has surpassed this record figure since the beginning of the championships of one of the games that have marked a before and after.
To talk about Counter-Strike is to talk about a classic, about unforgettable moments in Dust or Inferno, about the afternoons of colleagues in a cybercafé hanging out and biting off each other to see who could make more frags.

It’s a game that has been tried out by practically everyone, which has meant a before and after in the video game industry and, above all, in the electronic sports sector. Because yes, League of Legends will be the current audience leader, but Counter-Strike has been there for more than 15 years.
With the arrival of CS:GO, the sportsearnings site began to calculate all the money distributed in prizes in the Valve shooter, and last August 26th the figure of $100,000,000 distributed since 2012 was exceeded.
The professional scene of CS:GO seems eternal, and is that they have passed all kinds of sets that have marked an era in the game. From Ninjas in Pyjamas, through Fnatic to the last most dominant set: Astralis.
In Spain, we also have teams to remember, such as that KPI that was a big hit, the mythical x6tence or that Movistar Riders quintet that, although it seems to hit bottom, excited the whole Spanish community.
And even if you get competition, as may be VALORANT, Counter-Strike will be eternal, and if it seems surreal to exceed 100 million dollars in prizes distributed, surely they will have more than double to distribute.
