VERSUS feature: Gameaccount integration
Every CS1.6, CS:S and CS:GO player can look forward to the new VERSUS feature: Gameaccount integration. In the future everyone will need to verify their gameaccount with VERSUS. This will improve the security of your account and also efficiently prevent fake accounts. An open beta test for ESL Premium users starts today.
Fake accounts in VERSUS is a common issue and the complaints from the community are absolutely understandable. It took a little bit, but now we have a smart, simple and most importantly secure solution for this problem.
** Update **To have a little more of a stress test we changed the German 5vs5 clouds in CS and CS:S for today (25th of July) to Gameaccount Beta only. If you got no ESL Premium or no Gameaccount entered you can still join the EU cloud. We will change everything back to normal after some time of testing.
Gameaccount integration - The benefitsVerifying your gameaccount improves your account security massively and especially helps us in preventing fake accounts from playing VERSUS. After the release of this feature there will be only one solution to bypass the system: buying a new copy of the game. This should be enough to deter the majority of fakers and cheaters.
Gameaccount integration is available for:
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
Gameaccount integration - Beta testFrom now on every ESL Premium member is able to test this new feature in VERSUS. We have setup a special ESL Premium cloud for each game with the activated gameaccount integration. This limitation is needed to check the performance before the system goes live.
As a thank-you gift for playing actively and your support in helping us to improve VERSUS we offer you ESL Premium with a 50% discount for a short time.
Gameaccount integration - How it works
Gameaccount Integration - FAQQ: Can gameaccounts still be added manually?
A: No, the new automated system replaces the old verification process.
Q: I already entered my gameaccounts, do i still have to verify myself again?
A: Yes, every player needs to verify his gameaccounts with the new system, since the new verification process ensures more security for your account as well as a better prevention against fakeaccounts. Furthermore VERSUS is completely based on new technologies and to prevent dependence from old ESL code we had to program the gameaccount system from scratch.
Q: What can i do if anyone plays with a wrong gameaccount?
A: In this case you should report the player with the newly added reporting reason "Wrong gameaccount".
Q: When trying to verify my CS:GO gameaccount the automatic connection to the server doesn't work.
A: CS:GO doesn't support connecting to a server automatically yet, therefore you need connect to the server manually.
