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
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!

Neither the T's or CT's to use as my muse
It was now upon me to detonate a lyrical fuse.
Time was running out, 42 seconds on the clock.
No time to plan another route, I'll just have to use my glock.
In all these other writtings each has someting to bring
But for my key I'd go back and save Martin Luther King!
CS 1.6 and CS Source were great
but I know which key I want to find in my crate
Because you see, the CS GO key and me, well it ought to be my soulmate.

Sorry about the double post, but my lyrical piece was split up into 2 parts for some reason, anyways here it in its complete form.

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.

Here it goes. In the tune of part of your world from the little mermaid, because if you are going to make a song about counter strike, its gotta be from a completely unfitting category.

I'm going T
Ak's for me
Planting and rushing and owning cts
De_Dust 2 going T, ready to own
everything

Look at this post
Its full of lols
Gimme the beta ill own all the trolls
Looking forward to the game
I will Deag, everything.

I'll throw Flashbangs and smoke bombs a plenty
I'll plant b bombs and a bombs galore
you want one Deags?
I'll get twenty.
and who cares?
I've got an AK
You've got an M4

I'm going b where the CT's are
I'm gonna rush- but first I'm flashing
Walking through tuns - I hope you've got the
bomb

Spraying and praying you wont get too far
Aim is required for getting Headshots
Hope that my spray won't get me-user has been
banned-

Oh will they walk and oh will they run
Oh will they swear cuz my team just won
I'm just a T, so just let me be, part of this test

And you know that I would, give Valve all of my money
But you know that we are, still in the best test
I'm glad that I ran, into this post
I hope that I will win a key now
CS:GO time, would be as fun
As I had planned

I'm ready to go don't you people know?
Report bugs and test new maps out
Rate of fire and brand new weapons?
Word.

When can I play
You know that I love, love to destroy noobs with All my guns
I need a key
Wish I could be
Part of the test

I will tell you a story about a boy who had a dream. This young boy doesn't know to much about this world. He had a lot of failures and of course a lot of victories.
One day he met very nice girl, love at first sight. They were really good pair, his dream seemed to be completed ,but he discovered that his girlfriend is cheating him.
His dream was complete destroyed. When he was thinking about this, he couldn't stop crying. Yea, this boy is me. When i saw this contest, i felt hope. Hope for key,this key which let me stop from crying and will let me have fun.

Ode to a Grecian Bombsite:

Who are these rushing to the bombsite?
To lower tunnels, O insane terrorist,
Lead'st thou with flashbangs thrown with might,
And weapons out, screaming, totally ******?
What a poor little target, hidden on dust2
Forgot to smoke mid, thou know you come
On Skype, they call out you, the few,
And, despair! They rotate! So brave!
Footsteps; Thou cannot ne’er turn back
Thou should’ve chosen to save!
O those boxes! Y’all flashed each other!
AWP in the back of site; one shot,
With a single crack, a miss, but he has another
A collateral! Two fall in the same plot!
In spectate: They cry foul!
Only one left, but he can’t clutch
The dead ask: Did they stack the site?
A CT yells across advice, but not too much
"Thou got aced, I aced thou" – get trowned!
Thou totally got clobbered by my might!

This is the worst negative-karma-fest in the history of ModDB! I went through all pages to give everyone a +1 to their Karma. It seems we have a few trolls on hear willing to waste their time just to down vote everyone, except themselves. Anyways, Great work so far people! +1 for effort.

In a unrelenting addiction
a gamer finds himself excited
he knew it must be fiction
but he was soon delighted

He was longing to play Cs:Go
but the days when by slow
when steam told him "No"
steam was now his foe

Hope was beginning to wane
he wanted to yell "boom headshot!"
but the gamer was in pain
his insides began to rot

Then this glorious opputunity arose
and he had to do everything possible
in order to avoid varicose
and spare all those responsible

After this unpleasent excursion
the equivalent of being dragged by a horse
the gamer upgraded his version
of counter strike source

I have been supporting valve since the day i was born.
Half-life was the first game i ever played, then Counter-Srike came.
A mod that brought me a full new level of amusement.
In that year i was sure i wanted to be part of Valve Family.
Developing games, innovating and make history like they did.
And when a boy ask me for be a beta tester i won't say no.
So here i am on moddb asking for a chance to be atleast one game beta tester.
Ps: CS I S2 love you!
Pss:Don't karma rape me
Or Chuck Norris will get you!

I play the Tribes Ascend Beta and Super Monday night Combat
So why not continue my quest of beta testing trying my chance at
Counter Strike Global offensive
My stance will be very defensive
I'm not the best at this First Person Shooter game
But My skills aren't really too lame
I will find bugs
I will report thugs
And Play this game like an average person
So please let me on

My leg moved in front of me, then back. My other leg followed.
I was running. The floor was wet mud, broken up by rock and dirt.
Mud was oozing out of my steps, as I was moving through the dense forest. I do not know how I got here, although I knew what I had to do.
Many others were trailing behind me, desperately trying to get to my position. However, they were not chasing me.

I caught a glimpse of the target, taunting me. It wanted to be caught.

A symbol had appeared in my sight and the many others behind but, by now they were by my side and some in front. The purpose of this had entered a single thread.

We all followed.

I had arrived, close to first. Although as more enter, first is fading to the bottom.
I fell.
Onto a character.
A single character.
The character was a.

Once upon a time,
I wouldnt use a dime
into a single shotting arcade
I was afraid
To waste that time
but counter-strike
took all my dimes
For some good time

Today,
I think of yesterday
and I'd do it again,
Campaigns are a pain
but counter-strike is insane

On their knee
They asked for a key
With their eyes
They could see
It wasnt going to be free

They named
Every gods to be blessed
So they could rain
With their brains
The rhymes
For the game

Regardless of how you guys vote this
I promise that it is a true story.

I was linked to this site for this article,
and the chance to get in to GO early.

I realized I needed to comment,
So, I chose to sign up begrudgingly.

I went to create a username,
It's one that I use, quite typically

But it turned out my handle was taken,
and this came as a great surprise to me.

I looked at the thief's profile,
and there was my own name for all to see...

It seems I had already been here?
I then tried to log in, successfully!

Now it seems that instead of a poem
About why you should listen to my plea

I instead was left wondering how
I'd misplaced a part of my memory.

'Cause I don't think I'd ever been here
And the fact that I had was quite scary.

Now I've spent the last little while
in thought of past visits to Mod DB

Regardless my priorities won out
I no longer care.. just want that darn key.

There once was a man with a gun nudged in between his butt cheeks. He had a small line attached to the trigger that was also tied to his mouth. He would run everywhere backwards with tears rolling in his eyes, people would shreek and yell as he past.

"WHY?" ,they would shout

Deep down inside he knew if he told, everyone would die.

It's seven years to the day
That Counter-Strike blew me away,
And after making some maps
And people calling me "HAAAX"
Over time I kinda strayed away.

But then I found a Facebook link
And I thought "I really need a drink",
Because lo and behold
It was "Counter-Strike: GO",
The trailer that made me think.

So I went back to Source SDK;
"I need to be back in the fray"
But then I went "Oh I see,
All I need is a key
For the beta to be a-okay."
