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!
---

Please note that I don't want to offend anyone here.
uhm... randomly picked some posts??
I'm not saying I should have won, no not at all. I've seen great rhymes here from people who tried to make an effort and in my opninion, I repeat, in my opinion, should have won. I see a lot of very bad, not making sense, not being funny ones in the list of winners. That's why I say: "WTF IS WRONG WITH THE PEOPLE WHO JUDGE THIS".

Thank you for reading.
Peace,
CptWesley

Because there are a few reason ( From my experience )

1st play they show off to people who didn't play. ( N if the other person want, he ask something in return before giving him )

2nd they get level up before other people ( like for some reason here online games 1st play get number 1 to get cash )

Well that's what they do here, even my friends desperate to get CS:GO.

Aww, where's my Call of Counter Companyfield: Bad Warfare Offensive key?

But no seriously, **** all these modern shooters. If they wanted CS to survive they would've gone somewhere new with it, not further polluted the market with more jingoistic gun-fetishing crap.

Keep in mind too, that this Counter-Strike was not made by the same team who created 1.6 and CS:Source. The main developer has moved on to create Tactical Intervention, which in my opinion, looks WAY cooler. Take a look if you haven't already! Ti.ogplanet.com

Uh-ha, it's all Counter strike baby bay-bee, uh

It was all a game
I used to kill noobs Up my scoreboard
frag's n smoke's up in the ct' site
shootin' pictures in de_office
Every Saturday noob Attack,Legio, Mod DB
I let my glock rock 'til the noobs drop
Smokin' noobs and hackers, campin' with an awp
Way back, when I had the kevlar
With the helmet to match
Remember killin' legio, duh-ha, duh-ha
You never thought that Mod DB would take it this far
Now their in the limelight 'cause I frag tight
Time to get paid, blow up the bomb site
Born killer, the opposite of a winner
Remember when I used to eat hackers for dinner
Peace to Ron G, Brucey B, Kid Capri
Funkmaster Flex, zalias, lucifer
I'm blowing them up like you thought I would
Call the crib, same number same hood
It's all counter strike

Uh, and if you don't know, now you know, playa, uh

With a free beta key,
Would be so intense,
Where else, but ModDB."

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

ModDB didnt even rhyme with anything a rhyme should sound like this:
Wheres the case?
Where else but ModDB

Lol if people would be honest they would say this Henley dude didnt do ANY not even a TINY bit of effort to pick the good ones...Just look at this one this is just pathetic:

ZaliaS:
"For the first time on ModDB,
The Devs tried to make a fool of me,

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

This wasnt even funny this isnt even a poem this is NOTHING he just complains and gets a key for complaining...SO now i also get a key because i complain about the devs and some guys who cant rhyme for ****?
damn...

I completely agree, but honestly I spent 20 minutes on mine, didn't win, and I don't care too much, I still enjoyed writing a poem, no matter how bad it was. One thing you over looked, some people say "Mod Data Base", other like me say it like "M.O.De.De.Be" "Key" rhymes with "Be"

A key for a rhyme
I could type for all time
But i fear i may never feel such glee.

For those who think
Such a key is for free
Then Listen to this story of mine

No money is exchanged
Not yours, his, or mine
For what is asked is blood, sweat and tears
And for you to play for all time

Years ago a man named Jimmy came up to me and asked me to hang out. We became great friends. One day the war of 1345 came. Jimmy was eating human skulls when our general came down. He asked Jimmy to come to him and whispered something to him. Jimmy then beat him to death with a banana. Then the Norwegians came. They assaulted us with water, oh god it burned. They ended up hitting Jimmy directly in his hair, he then fell to the ground. I went after him and clutched his dying body, his hair as wet as could be. Jimmy was hacking and coughing violently. "The general..." he paused "Oh god it hurts..." he sobbed. "Cmon Jimmy! Spit it out..." I cried in his ear. He whispered to me "He told me... to end all wars you must... you must" "Cmon Jimmy! Don't leave me!" I screamed. He then continued "You must get a beta key for a game called... Counter strike: Global offensive... Get it for me Jack... GET IT FOR ME!" "What does that mean Jimmy?" I questioned furiously as he uttered a small wheezing sound and fell limp in my arms. I cried out "Nooooo!" and attacked the surrounding forces with the general's mutilated body. To this day I ventured to find what it meant. The day I finally find the way to end all wars, and It's already taken from me. I now sit in my chair reminiscing back to the days me and Jimmy were happy, crying to the thought. That I'll never get to fulfill Jimmy's last dying wish...

Some guy in CSS was
Surrounded by some T's,
He found a door behind him
And away he got,he found
A keycard that has a
CS:GO key on back of it
He got to his computer
Then he entered the key
He seemed that his PC
Doesn't meet the
Minimum requirements
So that guy got CS:GO
For nothing!
