CS:GO Features

Continuing the story about the CS:GO, we should mention the features of the gameplay. Competitions are held according to the classic 5-on-5 formula. That means there are two teams with five players in each. The plot revolves around the confrontation between terrorists and a group of counter-terrorists. Each side pursues its own goals and objectives, the fulfillment of which will lead to victory in the round. The terrorists must plant a bomb in one of two locations, while the counter-terrorists will try to prevent the installation and prevent an explosion. If the bomb explodes after the timer expires, the round ends with the victory of the terrorists. One round lasts 1 minute and 55 seconds. Normally, 30 rounds are played per one card, with a change of sides after the 16th round. However, in case of a tie, additional rounds may be assigned.
