CS:GO Rules

Welcome to the Rules section! You can find all of our Rules here. The General Rules apply to all games, and each game additionally has its own specific rules. Please familiarise yourself with them.

Sitewide Rules

These rules govern all conduct on this website at all times. Read these alongside the game specific rules for the game you are playing.

  1. If your opponent is not following these rules, do not continue to play the match. Terminate the match early and report them.

  2. If a player breaks a game specific rule, you must report this within two hours of the game finishing. If we deem necessary we will contact the other player, who will then have 24 hours to respond to your claims. If they can’t provide a reasonable explanation for the alleged rule breaking or do not respond, then action will be taken against them.

  3. If you are playing against someone whose platform username does not match their username on CounterPick, do not play the match. If you continue to play and then dispute the outcome of the match, we will be unable to assist you.

  4. If a player leaves the match early and doesn’t return within one minute, this player will automatically forfeit the match.

  5. Terminating the game early on the basis of severe lag or network problems is permitted within the first 30 seconds of gameplay only.

Permanent ban rules

After breaching any of the rules outlined below, your account will be put on notice. This will be your first and last warning. Any subsequent rulebreaking will result in a permanent ban.

You may appeal a permanent ban within 24 hours by sending an email to info@counterpick.com.au with an explanation of why you think the ban was incorrectly applied to your account. After 24 hours, or a failed appeal, your account balance will be reduced to zero and your email address and usernames will be blacklisted from the site.

Hacking

You must not hack or use exploits on games while using CounterPick. If you’re reported for hacking and the opponent has evidence you will be permanently banned. Abusing game mechanics, glitches or common bugs which are a natural part of gameplay is allowed.

Derogatory or Abusive Language

You must not engage in excessive abusive chat. We’re all adults here so swearing is acceptable - but just be respectful to your fellow gamers and don’t be toxic. If you are consistently sending homophobic, sexist, racist or other disrepectful messages this will be grounds for discipline.

Guests

You must not have any guests in your games. All games must be between the two players in the game lobby on CounterPick. Adding any additional players to your group before a game starts is strictly forbidden.

This rule extends to ‘spectating’, whether legitimate in purpose or not.

False Evidence

If your opponent broke a rule and you did not take a screenshot or record the offence, you must not use images or footage from another game. If it is proven that you are providing ‘evidence’ that is not from the match in question, you will be permanently banned.

Duplicate Accounts

If you are caught creating duplicate accounts on this website, CounterPick will permanently ban both accounts. You cannot withdraw your funds from CounterPick without first providing photo identification to prove you are over 18. This identification is kept securely on record and will prohibit you from using another account.
