For Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans, sticker day is just like Christmas. Every year, in the build up to one of the Majors, Valve drops an update that not only lets people begin their pick’ems challenge, but allows people to dive back into the strange world of CS:GO stickers. With the PGL Antwerp Major just around the corner, that time has come.
But this time around, the stickers are plentiful. In the last Major, only the top eight teams got autograph stickers – something Valve came under fire for – but now, it seems we’re seeing a return to form with every competing player getting a chance to become the people’s favourite.
From legendary players like Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev to contenders like Pavel ‘s1ren’ Ogloblin , there’s a sticker for everyone. And by picking up a team logo or autograph capsule today through the store, you too can have a chance of owning one – after all, 50% goes to the players, teams, and organisations involved.
This year, the stickers are available in four variants: paper, glitter, holo, and gold – with some signatures, particularly Rick ‘floppy’ Kemery and Finn ‘karrigan’ Andersen looking quite nice in the latter.
If you’re unsure on which ones take your fancy – particularly if you’re looking to complete your big floppy dick collection like this CS:GO esports fan – you can see all of the autographs in full via our gallery below.
Also on sale is the viewer pass, which will give you access to the upgradable event coin, the pick’em challenge, team graffiti, a Steam.tv flair, and exclusive access to the Antwerp 2022 Souvenir Packages. For each correct guess in the pick’em, event coins will be upgraded and players will be rewarded with souvenir packages – so it’s well worth the investment if you know your stuff.
If you don’t, you’ve got between now and May 9 to get your picks locked in – so scrub up on your knowledge and pray to the gaming gods.
