CSGO gambling, steam and lawsuit

http://www.polygon.com/2016/6/23/120...on-skins-valve

Seems like Valve will be cracking on online gambling with items for CSGO... it might be interesting...

Anyone from EAB tried any of this?

I'v never been a friend of that system.
In fact I can not understand why people pay for weapon skins.
I mean it's not that it makes your gun any better.
Why not a nice ingame skin editor and free sharing for CSGO.... I better keep dreaming.

I still prefer the old 1.6 when it comes to a quick round of CS.

Well I think some of the skins look nice, but I don't go around buy them. I only bought one skin ever, and that was less than a dollar.

Not I, yes I own CS:GO but just mess around once in awhile is all.

However I do know many folks enjoy the heck out of the game so whom am I to say otherwise

Some skins look cool. So it seems to me that it is a regular phenomenon for inveterate players, to give money for this. When it comes to what you like, we do not spare strength, time, and money.
Here is the great article with the best Steam skins: https://csgoreview.com/download-steam-skins/

These skins and other cosmetic items are nothing but fodder for stooges.

90% of the steam community are absolute imbeciles, you just have to look at the discussions for any game to see just how thick the majority of them are, so it is no wonder this crap is so popular.

I've lost count of how many wankers I have blocked because they had some sort of csgo crap in their name. I even put a message in my profile saying that people and groups with csgo crap in their name will be blocked.

This tomjohnson clown above is a perfect example of the sort of deadshit who finds this crap cool. I bet his steam name is something like 'tomjohnson ^^csgoreview.com^^'. He would be blocked straight away.

The bloke in the article trying to sue Valve is another example of the sort of dropkick that gets involved in this shit. He lost his money and now he's upset so he decides to sue. Somehow I can see his case getting laughed out of court, who knows though, its happening in America after all.

And a neat $200M+ income per year for Valve. People love blowing money on these things.

Just try a pint of Absinthe and Wasabi followed by a friendly game of Shin Kicking wearing a pair of Hob Nailed Boots with Razor Blades in the Toe Ends
