Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 12 years ago.

Report article RSS Feed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta Key Contest

Update: Winners have been announced! Congrats to all the winners!

Posted by Henley on Feb 23rd, 2012

Hello Modders and Modies. As you know yesterday I hinted at being able to win yourself access to the newest CS:GO beta and today is the day you find out how. This is going to be a fairly simple contest to give 15 keys to our community, the other 5 keys will be given out to the some of the more active people within ModDB (as judged by staff).

images 5

To enter all you need to do is impress the staff by writing a simple limerick, poem or short story about why you should be in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive beta and if that is too difficult counter-strike in general will also suffice. Post your entries in the comment section below. You can enter as many times as you like, and the most creative and original entries (extra points for funny entries) will win. You have two days to enter, and winners will be notified by personal message on ModDB. If you do not claim the reward within a day we will just give it too another entrant. Take note, if you submit your entries in any other way we will ignore it so don't bother.

Best of luck!


UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!

We have our winners! Check your inbox soon for your beta key.

GuyOnAManatee:
Here is a gamer named Manatee
Who had only one last plee
He can't aim for shit
and constantly rage quits
But all he wants is one key

ModDB: This kinda sums up my experiences with counter-strike over the years.
---

mjnowak:
The keys are few,
The crew is wise,
A contest of English,
The noobs demise.
To play Global Offense,
With a free beta key,
Would be so intense,
Where else, but ModDB.

ModDB: Love it, especially how you rhymed ModDB with something.
---

dontragemebro:
people who play CS try for headshots
some people may claim they use aimbots
nothing is sadderwhen people cry "hacker!"
when people just like to play a lot

ModDB: I am sure it was all just skill! Like your mad rhymes.
---

Epidemic12:
Awpers, Awpers, everywhere
Will they see me?
I don't care
In B tunnels?
At long A?
Well placed frag grenade,
And they ragdoll away

ModDB: AWPers more like no-skillers... HA. I'm funny.
---

Wombo194:
Open the door
Get on the floor
Please give me a key because I'm poor

ModDB: Lets hope this funds your archaeology event.
---

twinnuke:
Bullets ablazing
Newbies a hating
Aim bot Aim bot they cry
but I'm just amazing

The sniper they fear
A scoping i steer
as the bullet leaves the chamber
Not a head is left near

ModDB: I dunno about you guys but twinnuke's new album is hella-tight! 
---

medve:
roses are red
violets are blue
i hope this will have a proper promod

ModDB: You and me both sister! 
---

ZaliaS:
For the first time on ModDB,
The Devs tried to make a fool of me,
Wasting my time,
To come up with rhymes,
Just for a damn beta key.

ModDB: I'm sorry alright... I just wanted to be with the cool kids. 
---

jimmynavio:
A key to this game, I desire
And proof of this fact, you require?
With one single move
My fervor I'll prove
By lighting my crotch hair on fire!

ModDB: I am afraid to ask for pictures to confirm this, but I love your commitment! 
---

campbullard:
24/7 born and raised
on dust 2 is where i spent
most of my days
poppin' off headshots
no scopin' these fools
gettin' called haxxor
like it's preschool
when a couple of t's
who are up to no good
started causing trouble
down in packaged goods
got in one little knife fight
and the admin got scared
says you going to csgo beta
you belong in there

ModDB: Shit just got real....
---

MilfandCookies:
In 2000 it first began,
To four different games it would span,
With great mods and fun,It became number one,
The Counter Strike franchise change man.
One of these glad men was I,
Who, for Counter Strike: GO, would die,
But without a beta key,
No GO for me :(,
I'll make sure that key is all mine.

ModDB: You sir are a poet for the ages!!! 
---

freepwnyridez:
My girlfriend cried "You must come to bed!"
"Quit CS and I'll give you great head!"
I cried "Dear I can't yet!"
"I really must plant this!"
Guess I'll have to whack it instead!

ModDB: I was tempted to not pick this one, I cannot deny it is clever though! 
---

tioslash:

"Invalid CD Key", Steam?
I swear! I´ve got it from ModDb!
Was it a dream?
Where is my CS:GO beta key!!?

Well, I still need my fix!
So what will it be?
It´s back to 1.6...Or wait for Half-life Three?

Damn it.

ModDB: Wait! The first key I sent you didn't work? I'm sorry here is another... 
---

hevlovesbike:

Registered today
Now im itching to play
Saw this contest
That sparked my interest
Oh to kill again
On my steam engine
Missing the thrills
Of a Counter strike kill
To fill this void
you have been employed
Now all I seeis this beta key...

ModDB: Welcome to the family of mad rhymes and modders! Have a key... 
---

Cas943:

Twas the night before the beta,
And all through the map,
Not a CT was stirring,
Except John J. Fap,

When the terrorists rushed in,
Weapons held high,
John J. pulled a pin,
And watched them fly,

With one terrorist left,
And no where to run,
John J. said,"Now ain't this fun?"

His weapon a blazing,
The terrorist's balls they were grazing,

In the end he saved the day,
Old John J.,
So wake up CTs,
Don't be AFK.

ModDB: Don't you be AFK accepting this key!
---

Congrats to the winners and thanks to all those who entered. So many entries!

I sit here, juggling a toothpick with my tongue from one cheeck to the other. My tongue dances with the fashioned wood in a show of my common everyday anxiety. I'm thinking of how Valve is making a new game. How the Source engine is getting new material to show its potential. I keep asking myself "Why do I even need this key? I haven't even played CS: Source since that stupid Christmas event." Because I haven't played a Valve game I didn't like? This is true, but is it really a reason to write into a contest for a key? I can't deny my fond memories of CS: Source. I'm thinking of the first time I got a new PC. At that moment it was the most beautiful and fun game in the world. I mean, I sucked at it. I still do. But I wont reminisce on Counter Strike memories. Because I don't need to know how much I liked Counter Strike then or now. A shooter is coming out, a sequel to a series I know I've enjoyed. It's from one of my favorite developers Valve. It's on the game engine I plan on developing on that I continue to learn more about every day, Source. I really don't think now is the time to chew on a toothpick and wonder if I can get a beta key, or if I deserve one, or if I should let others take it, or whatever the hell. Because it's really more simple than that. It's the time for me to throw this toothpick away and write. So.

Only fate knows if this story shall sate, I begin to tell the tale of Rook98...

Rook was once a noob, and his teammates were rude.

The ally terrorists camping spawn said to rook as if he were fish food.
"Rook98! there you are mate! please run through the map, and you shall act as bait."

Rook did as they said, without delay, but unfortunately, to their dismay... alltalk was on, and the plan was in shambles, it was up to our hero, to make a great gamble.

The bomb had been planted, but all his teammates were dead. Rook98 saw, they were all shot in the head.

Rook made the decision, to run to A, were he hoped his teammates had planted... but they did not say.

When Rook had shown up, he had the site blown up, and victory came to the terrorist, HOORAY!

So in the end, the CT's died, and the cake was not a lie, so moist and delicious the terrorists ate, and all of it is thanks to Rook98.

They say you should try things at LEAST once.
Even if it's only a glance,
I'm taking a chance to get this game in my hands.
I can't rhyme, but I'll try, because CS is sick.
Even if I lose, or I die, or I get my *** kicked
I know I'd have fun because I got it before everyone.
Honest, it'd be an honor,
It's a VALVe game!
And at least it's not L4D3...

I'm not a rookie but I'm not a pro I speak of my own experience that every year I've been playing counter strike, was a golden age from 1.3 to 1.6 (for me) then were taking failures, condition zero? is the corresponding line of evolution than I expected, source? valve seems to try to make the jump to the next generation of that time but remained in "failure", today not all play source because most players prefer the world and continues to play 1.6, I test the global beta to see if have been able to jump right to the new generation and management of it, miracles do not ask, just ask for a version in line with the previous line cs how good it was and bring my experience. Thank you!

Counter Strike 1.6 is the greatest game that shall ever
exist. No game has impacted my life as much as CS. It
taught me the importance of teamwork and improved my social skills growing up. CS 1.6 introduced me to a lot of friends from all over the world that I still speak with to this day.

1.6 eventually faded out of my life after high school. Every now and
then, I'll jump on a server to school some newbs. The skill of head
hunting is like riding a bike, it never really goes away. The game play
is still better than any FPS out there. The feeling of a headshot rivals that of an ******.

Counter Strike isn't just a game to me. Counter Strike is apart of my
life. And the memories of scrimming late nights, trying out for a new
clan, and working together with complete strangers will be with me for the rest of my life.

Please give me a Beta key!

Thanks,
Nick

Will I be noticed? Will they give care?
Hopefully they don't begin to stare.

A full life of knowledge trained to a pique.
design, testing, feedback, that I seek.
Helping hand in my favorite game.
To mooch here would simply be insane.

But alas, my real life calls back
Outside right now it is very black
Sleep, now, is the best action I deem
perhaps of counter-strike is what I'll dream

Since I heard of the beta I couldn't have gotten a wink of sleep if I tried,
If I told you I wasn't excited for this then I'll tell you the truth: I'd have lied;
Another day passes when I have no access and I bear the pain less and less,
To be somewhat honest I don't play much CS 'cause I am a noob... I digress;

The Gabens of old tell of casual mode,
Where noobs like me can survive;
And the graphics, the views,
It looks shiny and new,
It all makes me feel alive;

It all looks fantastic,
The bombs look bombastic,
I can't wait to dive in and play;
Exhausted of options I thought up a limerick,
For I can see no other way.

Now this is a story all about how
my k/d dropped upside down
It only took a minute
That game wasn't fair
Now I'm called the n00b
by gamers everywhere.

From xbox playstation and even PC
No games seemed to be right for me
I left a game when some pro thought it'd be cool
to troll me endlessly, what a tool.
I'd never seen something that brought so much glee
as that CS:S guy staring back at me.
CS:S on sale, now that was my kind of game
Finally I'd lose my nooby nickname.
Three days later I'm beastin it up
No longer a negative K/D, now that's whatsup!

No longer that noob that knew not what to do!
so let me make a simple proposal to you!
Let me have that beta key.
Something so good should be given to me.

Because I played CS since 1.2 beta.
Because I made our lan parties play it instead of unreal and quake.
Because I supported steam when no one else did.
Because I have spent countless hours on CS...
Because I am an old man now, I don't want to die without playing CS:GO!
So pretty please, a beta key for an old man?

WitheredGryphon Feb 21 2012, 10:15pm says:

Since '08 I've been avidly gaming in Steam. I picked up Garry's Mod because I heard of it as one of the best sandbox games of its time back then. When I went into multiplayer I saw many purple and black boxes consuming the screen. I proceeded to ask the other players, why this was? They told me I must have been missing Counter Strike: Source. That is when I was first introduced to one of my favorite games I've ever played.

I bought Counter Strike: Source and was dazzled by the quintupling of the server amounts. In fact, there were so many the router overloaded and dropped internet connection for half an hour. To this day I still don't know how to fix it. I digress, there were so many servers that it was nearly impossible for me to pick one. So I picked a random Dust2 server.

This was the first time I experienced team-based FPS gaming. Outside of console games I had never, at this point, been introduced to the such. I assumed the title of "Beginner's Luck" then shot and stabbed my way to the top of that round. I continued to follow this pattern of randomly joining "pubbie" servers and fighting until I bested them all.

What I want Counter Strike: Global Offensive to be is my chance at a real competitive gaming experience. With this beta key, not only would I be introduced into an environment where I would get to enhance my gaming experience, but I would get to involve myself with communities in order to fight in skirmishes and clan vs. clan matches. With a beta key I would be able to do this along with getting to assist the developers with the development process of a game that will revolutionize how we look at the Source Engine.

Hoping for the best,

WitheredGryphon

dreaming of playing counter strike go
this is my only chance so i gotta flow!
Im not interested in selling the key for the chedda though!
so please give me the key
Im being so polite cant you see?
I was searching m o d d b
Saw this contest on the news feed and I knew it was for me!

[Chorus]
IT GOES M O D D B!
PLEASE GIVE ME A CS GO BETA KEY
I SAID M O D D B!
ALL IM ASKING IS FOR A CS GO BETA KEY?
M O D D B
CS GO WAS MEANT FOR ME!

[Verse 2]
Don't you see my lines of effort?
let me put something random in
LIMES AND LEOPARDS?
I deserve a key because Counter strike is all play
its all i think about every single day!
im suppose to be doing homework right now
but who cares!? I always procrastinate
So please give a key to V I B E
I was going to finish this song but then i took an arrow to the KNEE!!!

[Chorus]
IT GOES M O D D B!
PLEASE GIVE ME A CS GO BETA KEY
I SAID M O D D B!
ALL IM ASKING IS FOR A CS GO BETA KEY?
M O D D B
CS GO WAS MEANT FOR ME!

Bullets are flying
No one is dying

I need the key
That will set me free

To continue the mowing
And to send blood flowing

I dream of invalid solids,
But all I find is misaligned textures.
Perhaps CS:GO will be my orchid,
A heaven of maps made by good developers,
With let's hope an updated Source SDK.

Shall I find my way into the beta,
My objective shall be pushing this new beast to it's limits.

I don't know why you guys can't just draw names for this game.
When it comes to rhyming words I find it tedious and lame.
But what the hell, I'll enter something, what else can be done?
But when your favorites are selected I can bet this won't be one.
But if I am selected you can count on me for sass,
Cause I won a stupid contest goin' all Suess-y on your ***.

So!

The great games of old doth battle yet, but they've age more and more in recent years, and none can stand forever. Once those who've yet to fall reigned as lone victors, but now they're naught but hermits. In the days past, such games as olde Counter Strike in ninety nine, once but a mod, brought balance to a yet unconquered field, with balanced play and wide appeal. A good game it was, yet now those who once stood so staunchly have drooped their shields, at long last tired from their battles.

More came, some better yet. Unreal Tournament stepped forth in the same year and ran dry alike, but, as did Counter Strike, lived on in blood and heart. Good games as well, made and played for fun, as a true game is. It continued for many moons in this fashion, and warriors had not to fight so hard.

Now autumn's leaves have fallen and frozen, and the field is left in winter. The new now marches in warm clothes, offering ale and cakes to those who are so foolish to accept, a sad many. The new was good for a time too, with its 'iron sights', and claims of 'realism.' Aye, a wooden horse appeared as a gift too in the eyes of the Trojans. Now we are fed nothing but the oat left in the barrel; short, stale and unvaried. Each year another beast is spit forth, and each year more succumb to it. A beast with many faces and many names, some old and some new. Call of Duty, some have called it. Others Battlefield. Its writhing heads bicker amongst themselves, snapping at one another with dull fangs, suitable only for holding fools in their places. It claims more limbs and maws constantly, with its allure of unhindered coin and safe investment. Few take risks any more.

But those few remain, and are the bravest of all. Mojang, maker of worlds. Frictional, champion of darkness and terror. But one more than all. One hero who stands so bravely, a badge of the beautiful humanity of our struggle. A hero who proves with not just a message, but with people and coin, that they can stand free from this sad fray and prosper. This hero is Valve, and they'll not soon surrender.

The old returns now, welcomed indeed, in the form of the glory-child Global Offensive. It shrugs off the sad dullness of the new, but embraces its beauty upon the eyes. One day it, too, will grow beyond what was thought possible, and it, too, will sit amongst the olde legends. Counter Strike: Global Offensive shall save us all from this wretched bane, and we are all eager to see it.

Many wrote poems, hymns and songs, but what can be better than the olde and familiar? Little, if the state of the warrior-games past is prophecy yet. So one gentle poet, Duckhead666, took time as much as the others not to rhyme or to sing, but to retell the lore in the way of those before.

Is that not worth more than a beguiling rhythm?

There once was a man from dust 2,
Who was owning all of the noobs.
Following the enemy into a site,
With only his knife.
He found them camping with tubes.

To have Global Offensive, oh gee!
I would camp, so defensive, Long B.
But I sit here in [CS]Source,
I'm hit with remorse
Wishing one of those keys was for me

While the rest of the T's all rush Train
or West to Aztec, with rain
The bomb's left for me
Though deft can't you see
Our team will soon lose in vain

From 1.6, Source and CZ
and the lesser known "Deleted Scenes"
All of these games I surmount
Though not on my account
I really do hope you choose me

it's time for a poem
about 1.6

the most popular game
that ever exists

two teams at war
forever; a fight

you could defuse the bomb
you could do what is right

you could rescue the innocent
or kill all in your path

you could bomb everyone
with the might of your wrath

there were men with snow suits
running through the sand

and angry, scowling nerds
with weapons in hand

there were police with shields
and gas masks, and guns

and the whole world was fighting
and killing for fun

now the times have changed
a community gone

every server re-directs
to Romania and beyond

every pub filled with hackers
every scrim filled with slackers
and the only fun to be had
is versus team stackers

its time is gone
so let's leave it at that
lets hope cs:go is better…
or at least has cross promotional hats.

From site to site
I travel,
following for the light,
walking through the hard gravel.

At every contest I visit
I repeat the same process
Register, comment, and wait
Waiting like a spider waiting for food
I wait for a email of the key
The key to my happiness you see?

Then I come across
A website with a strange aura
What a strange feeling I think
And as I browse the contest I smile
I register, write a poem and wait.
Wait for a key
The key to my happiness.

Time to move on to the next website
To register, comment, and wait
Oh how boring ;(

There once was a website of thee
Who's name was ModDB
They gave out a key
Whom oneself could see
that the owner of it should be me.
