Official Playtime on Operation Hydra Maps

We have added a WebAPI for public access to official playtime distribution on Operation Hydra maps in Competitive and Casual game modes. This allows map creators and the CS:GO community to track the relative popularity of Operation Hydra maps.

In order to access the WebAPI you would need to obtain a Steam WebAPI key, if you don't have one yet, as described in this document.

Here's an example WebAPI call:
https://api.steampowered.com/ICSGOServers_730/GetGameMapsPlaytime/v1/?format=json&key=YOURKEYHERE&mapgroup=operation&gamemode=competitive&interval=week

Supported parameters:
  • gamemode={competitive|casual}, used to filter playtime tracking to the requested game mode

  • interval={day|week|month}, used to aggregate playtime across the requested interval. Data aggregation interval used in this WebAPI always ends at midnight GMT that has already occurred. For example, when requesting playtime for the day on July 4th at 09:00:00 GMT, the aggregated data returned will be for the 24 hour period between July 3rd 00:00:01 GMT and July 3rd 23:59:59 GMT. Playtime for the week covers 7 days period ending at last midnight GMT, and playtime for the month covers 31 days period ending at last midnight GMT.

WebAPI response:
  • WebAPI response contains relative percentages of player-minutes played on the Operation Hydra maps in requested game mode for the requested aggregation interval.

We encourage callers to cache the response for 24 hours, as aggregated data doesn't change until next daily aggregation cycle happens after midnight GMT.

About This Game

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 14 years ago.

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

"Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombardi at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS' award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac."
