I read a notice from the official CS GO site and I repost it here:
Hey folks! As many of you probably noticed we’ve been down for the past week… please accept our apologies! We ran into some issues while migrating servers and transferring the domain which have finally been resolved. On a better note, we are now on a much nicer server and the site should be much faster and more responsive from now on. Please let us know of any errors or issues you encounter using the site.
CS:GO news has been quite slow lately anyway – but Valve did mention on their official CSGO developer Twitter that “our next step, launching the beta, begins in the New Year”. This means that Valve will slowly be expanding the size of the closed beta starting sometime in 2012 (most likely January), meaning that for those of you who didn’t get one of the 10,000 keys distributed for the stress test phase of the beta will now have a chance to get your hands on Global Offensive! We’ll keep you guys posted on ways you can get a key – we’re hoping to procure some ourselves to give out to our readers but at the moment we don’t have any to give away. You’ll know as soon as that changes!
On top of that, we have some big things planned for CounterStrikeGO in the next month or so. We’re launching our community forums in January – and those of you who join up early and help us build a thriving forum community will be rewarded down the line! We’re also planning to roll out version 2.0 of the main site, which will eliminate our dependency on WordPress and switch the entire site over to a Xenforo backend (the forum software we will be using). For an example of what to expect, check out our sister site Battlefieldo which uses the same system that we’ll be changing over to later in January.
It’s an exciting time for Counter-Strike fans and we’re thrilled to be a part of it all! If you have any suggestions or feedback on our site so far, feel free to let us know in the comments.
