Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Custom Match

  • Updated


Setting up a lobby for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will require players to first utilize our Matchmaking Queue System on the Generation Esports Platform. Make sure all users have their Steam client and CS: GO install fully up to date before matching. 

  • Once both teams are matched against each other through the queue system, there will now be two buttons on the left of the Match Chat. 

  • Selecting “Play” will open up a popup window that will allow the home team to start applying the match settings.

  • Within the popup, the home team will have the ability to set the maps and region the server that the teams will play on. Each option has a drop-down menu that will be used to select the specific match settings that comply with your community's rules

  • Once all options have been selected from their drop-down menus, the home team will select “Approve” at the bottom of the popup window.

  • The away team will then be presented with a popup asking them to approve the game settings. At this point, the home team will see a message on their popup informing them that the match is awaiting approval from their opponents.

  • After both teams have approved the match settings, the box on the left of the match chat will now have a connect button displayed. Pressing it will provide the IP address and password needed in order to access the server inside the match chat.

  • In order to connect players will need to input the IP address and password into the developer console inside CS:GO. If you require help using the developer console, please view the article on Connecting to Games through the Developer Console
