Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - CS:GO Official


To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Counter-Strike, we would like to invite workshop contributors to create content for a themed Weapon Case and Sticker Capsule. The theme will be “Counter-Strike” itself, including all things CS-related, from the original Counter-Strike mod to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The weapon finish and sticker designs may be created in any style. We will need weapons for all tiers to complete the case, from Mil-Spec to Covert; consider this when designing your weapon finishes. All designs must be original with the exception of Counter-Strike logos or icons.

To help sort these themed submissions, please tag them with "CS20" in the title of your submission to the workshop (e.g. CS20 | Finish Name). All previous submissions are eligible for the event. Just make sure to tag them so we can find them more easily.

All submissions for this event must be completed and submitted to the workshop by September 19th 2019. The Weapon Case and Sticker Capsule will be released at a later date, after we have chosen which submissions will be included. All items submitted for this event will still be eligible for future releases.

We have also released a new style guide to help with weapon finish creation, and hopefully answer any questions you may have about the process. The guide can be found here.

With today’s Steam update, we’re making a change to the Workshop submission process to address fake item scams. First-time submissions to the CS:GO workshop will now require email verification before the item can be listed publicly. For those of you that have previously submitted Workshop items, you shouldn't see any change in functionality.

Background
What do we mean by fake item scams? If you browse the Workshop enough, you may have come across an item with an image of a rare skin, promising giveaways or free content. These items often contain phishing links that are used to compromise Steam accounts.



In the past, our moderation team would review Workshop items reported by players. Fake item scams would then be deleted and our team would reach out to the owner of the account and let them know that their account is likely compromised. The problem with this approach was that some items went unreported for quite a while, allowing them to appear to players and get in the way of real submissions.

New Process
With today's update, Steam will send an email to the account owner when a new item is posted for the first time, asking them to review and confirm the item they just posted. If an item was posted without their knowledge, this email provides an easy path to recover the account and change their password.

Our aim with this change is to reduce the potential for scams on the Steam platform, without creating unnecessary hassle for frequent Workshop creators.

Let us know if you have feedback.

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.

The quality of workshop submissions has been steadily increasing. We’ve seen some incredible work by new and returning contributors. For the next case, in order to direct this amazing creative force in the most useful direction, we’ve decided to announce in advance the weapons we hope to ship.

Shipping a case means balancing an ideal case design against the available weapons on the workshop. Often we’d like to ship a particular weapon at a particular quality, but can’t find a match on the workshop. As a result we end up shipping some weapons more frequently than we’d like, and some a lot less.

While we expect to ship several of the items already on the workshop, we’re hoping this announcement can help guide artists to fill some gaps (marked with an asterisk below). Note that the list isn’t a guarantee of the final case design. With that caveat out of the way, here is the list:

Covert
  • M4A1-S
  • G3SG1*
Classified
  • USP-S
  • AK-47
  • SSG 08*
Restricted
  • M249*
  • P250
  • MAG-7*
  • Galil AR*
Mil-Spec
  • Glock-18
  • Dual Berettas*
  • FAMAS*
  • SCAR-20*
  • XM1014*
  • MP7*
  • MAC-10

We will be making our final selections after September 7th.

FAQ

Do I need to do anything special to be eligible for this case?
No, all you have to do is submit your designs by September 7th and make sure your item has been finalized on the workshop.

Do I need to use the new paint style in my design?
No, it’s just one more option that you can consider. As with any weapon case, we’ll be looking for variety in art style.

Do I get paid more for a weapon in a higher tier?
No. Every weapon in a case pays out an equal share.

How do I design for a specific tier?
It mainly has to do with visual salience and design specificity. Weapons with bright colors and designs that perfectly complement a weapon’s geometry end up in the upper tiers. Weapons with more subdued colors and/or more randomization in the pattern application end up in the lower tiers.

What can I do to stand out?
Give your weapon a story. This is more than creating a beautiful design; it’s giving the weapon a visible history that hints at a larger narrative. Good examples are the AWP | Asiimov, the P250 | Cartel, AK-47 | Wasteland Rebel, and the P90 | Elite Build.

Have you wanted to give the AK-47 or the Sawed-Off an engraved or patinated look, but also replace the wooden stock? You asked for it but until now the weapon finish system hasn’t supported it.

In response to workshop contributor feedback, we have added the Gunsmith paint style. This style combines features from Custom Paint Job, Patina and Anodized Multicolored. Read about it in the Weapon Finishes Guide .
