Improving Matchmaking Last year we launched Prime Matchmaking with the goal of providing a better matchmaking experience. Initially the system simply matched players who linked CS: GO with a unique phone number. Later, the system additionally required in-game experience players needed to reach rank As these constraints were added, the Prime status created a hard boundary in the CS: GO community, and players who might otherwise be perfectly happy playing together were separated. A Matter of Trust So what if the Prime system was re-imagined using a wider range of factors? We started with that question, and have been experimenting with matching players using observed behaviors and attributes of their Steam account, including the overall amount of time they had spent playing CS:

New Counter-Strike Matchmaking System Analyses Your Behavior in Other Steam Games

Bain Chatter Do you get bored while waiting for the thermal drill to finish but are too comfortable to wear that clunky armor and do it loud? Did you ever wish you could hear more of Bain Honestly, who doesn’t? Then this mod will be perfect for you. While waiting around for that damn drill to finish or while shooting cops – I’m not judging , you can now ask questions to Bain via chat.

Certain words and phrases will trigger a vocal response from Bain that will be hearable by all players in your lobby “your” as in: You have to be the host.

The duration of the assessment is decided according to your preferences, your needs and the project.

Who qualifies for Prime Matchmaking? Players with a qualifying phone number whose rank is at least Lieutenant Rank 21 are eligible for Prime Matchmaking. If you were previously upgraded to Prime and have lost that status, all you have to do is continue to play and earn XP. Once you reach Lieutenant Rank 21 you will again be eligible for Prime Matchmaking. Does my number qualify for Prime Account Matchmaking? If your Steam phone number does not qualify, you’ll be notified when you click the Upgrade button.

Please note that we cannot make any exceptions. Should your number not qualify, you will need to re-associate your CS: GO account with a qualifying phone number. How do I activate Prime Matchmaking on my account? After clicking on “More Info”, players will be guided through the process of opting into Prime Matchmaking.

Can I upgrade more than one account with the same phone number?
