Link Your Twitch & CS:GO Profiles, Get Free Stuff From Valve

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players have a chance to win some free stuff from Valve during Dreamhack Winter 2013 later this month. All that’s required is some good old fashioned account linking.

Anyone who links their CS:GO and Twitch profiles, and watches the 2013 DreamHack SteelSeries CS:GO Championship,¬†will be eligible to win some “DreamHack Winter 2013 Souvenir Packages.” These key-free crates will contain a whole mess of different goodies, including some in-game CS:GO items.

You can get the linking process started here.

There’s a new CS:GO update today as well. Check out the release notes below.

Release Notes for 11/6/2013


  • Changed C4 planting sounds based on pro feedback. When planting the bomb, it plays an initialization sound that everyone can hear, but ONLY the player planting will hear the code typing sounds. This makes fake planting possible (similar to fake diffusing as a CT).
  • All items now follow the same pick up sound rules (grenades, C4, weapons, defuse kits, etc):
  • If a player picks up an item while running, it plays a pickup sound that everyone can hear.
  • If a player picks up an item while moving silently, it plays a subtle pickup sound to ONLY the player picking it up.
  • Weapons, grenades, and remaining money are now displayed as icons above player heads during freezetime. (Thanks R-arcHoniC)
  • Fixed overhead teammate arrows not showing up in some cases.
  • Fixed automatic observer target selection failing to find a controllable bot when a player was killed.



  • Fixed lighting on prop in CT spawn.
  • Fixed buggy wallbangs at A main and B halls.

  • Improvements to visibility throughout the map. (Thanks andzie!)
