Post news Report content RSS feed Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta Key Contest

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

Posted by on

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

Epidemic12:
Awpers, Awpers, everywhere

jimmynavio:
A key to this game, I desire

ModDB: Shit just got real....

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!

"Invalid CD Key", Steam?

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!

Gordon Freeman? GLaDos? Chell?
All of them can go to Hell!
There are many Valve games,
yes, i do love all of them,
but the real masterpiece
that all gamers love alike
is that classic, Counter-strike!
Post another press release,
or if you're nice and feel like
Give me just, at least, one key!
so i can have a great time!

Awesome story,

All i can say is that my friends and i detonated a bomb terrorist style in real life, in the time that we weren't practicing cs.

When I was just able to drive a car, my friends and i got into doing this thing called karting. Which is where we would take shopping karts from grocery stores while in a car. The person sitting in the passenger seat would hang on to the kart outside of the window. We would get going really fast and slam the karts into buildings and just about anything to mutilate the kart. Eventually we found an open area behind one of the grocery stores with a ramp up to an electrical box with stone pillars all around it. We decided it would be awesome to just close line this kart into a pole. This time i got going 70 mph in my car with my friend hanging on to the kart. The kart miraculously fell on its side and slid right between the 2 posts into the electrical box. We heard this HUGE KABOOOOM and the lights for the entire shopping area went off. The only lights that were on were the red safety lights.

Hope you enjoyed

"Reporting in!"

He always reported in. There was no one to report to, but he did it. He was certain he was the only one left. The only real one. The others...had become shallow husks who can only follow the same paths and die the same deaths. Over and over again. He was the only one who still retained some sanity. Or so he thinks. Maybe he is just as insane as them for going along with them.

"Enemy spotted!"

Same guy behind the crate. Same terrorist behind the car. Same flashbang bouncing around the corner that he knew all too well.

"Taking fire! Need assistance!"

Yeah yeah, he thought. A couple shots from his rifle put down the threats. The same way they had the previous rounds. The same teammate takes one right to the dome. Nothing could had prevented it. The bullets came through the door and penetrated the poor guy's helmet. He had come to terms with the fact he could not save this man long ago.

The bomb had been planted. It would always be planted. He has tried for what feels like years to prevent this. The outcome was always the same. He would clutch kill all the terrorists guarding the bomb, but always one second short of defusing.

"Get out of there! It's gonna blow!"

He knew it was going to blow. It was always going to blow. Such was the nature of this sick game. Was this some sort of perverted afterlife he had fallen into? Was he forever fated to repeat this trial? This unending torment? The ticks of the bomb clock are torture. They beckon to him. He knew it was his doom to answer the call. But he could not resist.

"Terrorists Win!"

There was a gamer named Jimbo,
He enjoyed to play the bongo,

One day he tried to play go,
He didnt have a key,
He cried to sleep,

And now he just plays with his dong-o.

There once was terrorist
Who lacked common sense
One day he tried to blow up his bed
And ended up with so many sticks poking out of his head
He woke up at the hospital with the receptionist at the front desk
He heard a loud shout from her
That went Counter-terrorists win

You be trying to be sniping the militia for show
Kick some teams with TMPS and off through the servers we go
Prepare a huddle near the tunnel but you know I don't care
You'll just keep on running into my crosshairs
B***h quit lagging I'll frag ya if you have a high ping
Take a bullet for myself

You just lost your sound
Respawn

In the tune of "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I was AWPing, weak and weary,
Quick-scopes down mid at de_season, a pick or two and nothing more,
While I zoomed, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As though some CT was rapping, rapping at the squeaky door.
And as he smoked and flashed the door, quoth the Deagle,
"B 1 4."

I can't write poems. but I can tell you a story. So at my high schools vo-tech I took a computer repair class to get certs in A+ and Net+. We had LANS twice a year one in the fall and on in the spring. The main games everyone played was CS 1.6 and DotA. Well someone decide to have a CS tournament, this was when I was highly addicted to CS and played it like it was my religion after school for 8 hours a day, and I knew each map(still do) and know exactly were the footsteps and the heads of each player are in the map. I pretty much had my own wall hack(my ears) That is one thing I loved about CS, it took skill and it took you to know the surroundings and sounds. This tournament wasn't a good idea. Because I ended up dominating everyone. It was like taking candy from a baby. I just never died and just massacred everyone. Each map I was going 28-0 and 36-1. I enjoyed it a lot but by the end of the tournament I was getting bored and there was no challenge for me. So I forfeit my scores and let someone else win the tourny. I couldn't just take the money and run It felt dirty to me like I didn't deserve it.

That's my story and it's 100% true.

Playing the good old 1.6
In a random mix
I took aim with my sniper like an eagle
When suddenly I hear the shots of a deagle
I turn around so very swift
Just to find that all his bullets missed
He had just made a boob
Because he was a giant noob
I took my knife
And ended his life
The noob went mad
Lulz were had
Suddenly, the audience chanted
You need to get the bomb planted
The time ran out
Darn, I'd shout
Ragequit

To the reader of these text

I do not really want the Beta Key of Counter Strike Global offense. I just wanna play a good game from a good game studio, what is alaways good to play all the modern time with a good VAC and not these crapy cheaters you often find in other games.

So...
Head shoots are funny, saving hostages is for the money.

P.s.: Please give Gamer_Goo321 a key, thats a truest story i have heard at the Base.

Sorry for my bad english, iam German.

With friendly greetings, our Herpa.

What can I say I'm a Counter-Strike freak, I'm experienced not pro so don't ever say weak.

I started this game back before steam rolled out and experienced the fear, loathing, and doubt.

Steam came through and so did CS and hopefully GO will share its success.

Counter-Strike: GO will take some time to refine using fan feed back and hopefully mine.

My eyesight, my friends, my family loving,
surrendered to this pitiful program.
New installation suddenly arises,
new maps, modes, full of surprises.
How well will it play, how good will it be?
The answers lie within the beta key.

While 1400 hours may not seem too long, they feel like a lifetime when you spent most of them flying through Office's hallways as a spectator, eager to respawn and try out that Can't-fail play strategy you formulated just after you got AWPed out of back window. I've always been amazed at how I have the patience to sit there, dead, just staring at paintings and vending machines for up to five minutes, but when the time comes to grab a gun and get real, I become lead runner in a footrace to see who can run open handed in to the opposing team's spawn and die the soonest.

I've had my share of lucky M249 headshots and blind knife kills, but I want to try a new strategy. I want to start over from square one. I want to play a new COunter-Strike.

Their once was a game called CSS. I like to play it more than chess. I just cant stand to see. Just watching others get a key. Sometimes i would like to say "I would like to lay with it, but i am not gay." So watch what you Say. I need to take a shower, because i play CSS for more than an hour. Because i like it when it taste's so sour. This game is like a tower. Just falling to me, making me want to pee calling for me. Though do i deserve a key? Lets just wait and see...

I'd like a key to CS:GO
I'd use it wisely, cause I don't blow
I've played CS for years
Through the sweat and the tears
And I have lots of skills to bestow

I'll tell you a story about my Deagle and my AWP
One after the other, the enemies would drop
It was fun
Finishing 20 to 1
I just couldn't be stopped

Now if I were to get a key
By the great ModDB
I'd love you life
Till death from a knife
So I can relive my story

At first I was afraid, I was petrified.
I thought I wouldn't have CS GO right there by my side,
But then Mod DB opened up its gates
and declared that there would a song debate!
So I began right away with my pen in hand
I started by writting to CT command.
Only to find out that I had been banned
Never to find out the terrorist's demand.
