10-year anniversary sticker capsule
In the update, Valve also added the 10-year anniversary sticker capsule. Consisting of submissions for related competition Valve held, the capsule features a whopping 60(!) stickers.
During the upcoming week of celebrations, players can earn a commemorative cupcake coin. By leveling up their account once, CSGO players will earn the 10-year anniversary coin.
In the blog post, Valve took some time to reflect on the state of the game. According to them, CSGO is stronger than ever on its 10-year anniversary. With a record high player base, averaging 20 million monthly players over the past year, record viewership, with PGL Stockholm peaking at 2.7M concurrent viewers, and over 70 Million raised by the community for professional teams, organizations, and players.
