Get your tactical helmet and facemask ready as we learn how to approach the CS: GO Bitcoin betting scene. But before moving into detail and discussing the strike operation; we need to know little about the history of the game first.
“If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.” -Sun Tzu
Let’s take these words from the great Sun Tzu and apply it on our approach with CS:GO.
The history of CSGO
Counterstrike: Global Offensive or CS:GO for short, didn’t just came out from a flashbang ang stabbed you in the eye; they were already camping for a very long time now and people already know the franchise name.
But it didn’t started as an action-packed first shooter e-Sports game. It started as a modification for Half-Life, a game wherein you need to have superhuman reflexes to be able to play the game straigt for a couple of hours and maintain that leading streak. Yes, it was a game of who had the fastest reaction time when moving in corners, especially in the map “Stalkyard“; do you still remember that map? I bet you do!
Counter-Strike was released back in 99′ and has undoubtly is the best FPS game to date! They changed the playing style of a free-for-all Half-Life into a team game wherein you need to work with your team members in order to set/defuse a bomb or just by simply eliminating the opposing team. But it’s not how easy as it looks. Have you tried playing Counterstrike? If you haven’t played a game of Counterstrike then you’re missing out big time! Please do keep in mind that people that you might encounter have been playing the game since it was released in 99′; so you know what to expect.

I have found a really helpful video for people that are new to CS:GO. If you are interested to learn these pointers, please watch the video below:
Fast forward twelve years from its release date and after 4 titles; Counterstrike gave birth to CS:GO. After the crazy $1,000.000 USD win by the DOTA 2 Champions in 2011, Valve decided that it was time to release its rendition of the FPS legend’s e-Sport variant of the game.

How to use information to your advantage in Bitcoin betting
Since we are all in a “tactical” mood right now, it would be best to approach this operation with precision and finese. Just like what the great Sun Tzu said “If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.” You might have won a huge bet by sheer luck alone and you think that this will just go on; deep inside you know that this isn’t true.
You need to know the game itself, what the game mechanics are and the best teams that can battle it out in every map possible. Unlike DOTA 2, CS:GO has more than just one map when it comes to Major games, and this is where you need to put your battlegear on.
Different maps means that you need to know the strength and weakneses of each team that you decide to bet with or against. If you are a “First Person Shooter” (FPS) player, you would know that not every day is Christmas. There are days in which you cannot even hit a stationary target 5 meters away from you while using an AWP. -Now that’s really bad!
There’s a huge difference between a winning streak and pure skill. Skilled CS:GO professional players usually go through every series with ups and downs and rarely a team can go from a normal season to majors without any major hickups, that’s just how the gaming world works. As a professional gamer, you know that you can afford to lose normal season games than having a meltdown at a middle of a major game.
That is why it is important to know your team’s stats all throughout their gaming history. Know what their favourite maps are, their set of guns to use and strategies to throw at their enemies. And one thing that you do not need to forget, would be to study all the other teams as well. In the world of betting, you always need to know what the other teams are up to, not just your favorite team.
Knowing what the other teams are capable of doing against each other is the perfect tactical approach to things.
CSGO Betting Styles
ESL One: Cologne 2015
Tactical – The best things in life are tactical. That is why you also need to put in mind that people who love to bet their Bitcoins with this method always gets a huge chance in winning. But just like any trained professional military personel, being tactical isn’t always the fastest approach to an objective. With tactical betting, you need to make sure that you have all the information down to the smallest detail possible.
You need to know how fast a team can get from point A to point B and how effective they are. Look into thousands of video-reply hours ahead of you in learning one team’s strenght from another. In the end, you will realize that it’s all worth the effort.
Seasonal – Just like a good Forex trader, you need to know how your “stocks” are doing and know when to “short” a team. In the e-Sports scene, being a champion on a previous major event doesn’t mean that you guys would still be 100% champions the next time around. All the other teams would study the previous champion’s moves and it would be hell for them to get into the qualifiers. With this being said, a Seasonal betting style would greatly depend on each teams performance per season.
The Fanboy – These are the people that love to bet on their favourite CS:GO teams. When they think their favourite team can win the series they would pour it all in no matter what and just leave it all to them. Nothing is wrong with going with your favourite team as long as they are doing great in the series, bad thing is that this type of betting is not profitable. If you want to bet on your favourite team alone, then make sure to lose on what you can afford.
