Counter-Strike 2 Custom Match Guide

Generating a Server

On the match page, follow the pick/ban process as outlined in the league rules in the match chat. Once the map(s) and region have been agreed upon, one team will use the match page tool to "propose" the map(s) and region. The other will accept the proposal if it is correct. Once the proposal is accepted, a server will be generated and a green "Copy IP" button will appear on the page. Click this button.

Connecting to Games through the Developer Console

First time setup: to connect to the CS2 servers, each player must have the developer console enabled in their game. To enable the console, go to the Options menu in-game. Under Game Settings set the “Enable Developer Console (~)” option to yes.
