. This statement, present all the gambling and betting CS:GO website as illegal.
Today (07/20/2016) Valve posted a new statement about this situation which follows a new CS:GO scam scandal from James
Varga, who is famous on Twitch user
In this statement, which is available on Twitter,
Valve presents a list
of website which are presented as gambling website.
CSGOLounge is in the list.
Valve is misunderstanding the
difference between Gambling and Betting
, which are different.
The CSGOLounge website, one of the most known website, if not
the most important and known from the community
since the website welcomes over
10.000 visitors everyday
, is making, the pro scene one of the most interesting in the e-sport community.
After, the closing of this website
(if it happends)
viewer amount will drop in a free fall
If the viewer amounts drop, the sponsors will go away, and by this, professional players wouldn't get paid enough to live of the game they all love.
For a game which keeps going on, keeps the excitement, and for one of the most interesting scene of e-sport,
Valve has to make an exception.
