Rent Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Server

What is Counter Strike: Global Offensive?

Global Offensive is the newest part of the popular shooter series Counter Strike, which was released in August 2012. In the most played mode, terrorists fight against counter or anti-terrorists, where the latter have the goal of eliminating all opponents, while terrorists can both eliminate opponents and plant a bomb and thus end the game. The teams consist of 5 people, especially in competition. Deviations are usually only found in special modes or on dedicated servers. This game mode competition is also used for large tournaments, which are held for example by the Electronic Sports League (ESL for short). The largest series, ESL One, has already been held in large soccer stadiums with tens of thousands of fans. In addition to the competition, there is also the Deathmatch mode, in which you have to defeat as many opponents as possible in one round, the arms race, in which you get a stronger weapon depending on the kill or lose it again through a death, and the destruction, which is a mixture of arms races and the competition mode. But Counter Strike is not only used frequently in the competitive area. Playing with and against friends also fascinates players immensely. Even the predecessor Counter Strike Source (CSS for short) was very popular at LAN parties and CS:GO is in no way inferior to it. However, if you can't go to a direct LAN party, you can also meet up with friends in TeamSpeak and play against each other there. People often use their own servers for this purpose, but they are even more popular with larger communities or clans that specialize in shooters or even CS:GO in particular.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Anyone who wants to spend time with friends or a community on a CS:GO server has to rent one themselves in order to have full control. We at Gameservercheck have compared the best offers for you. You can sort our table freely, for example by hoster score or by price - your choice!

Your own CS:GO server

If you want to use your own Counter Strike: Global Offensive server, you have two different options. The classic option is to rent a server from a provider, which brings an advantage in terms of hardware and you usually already hold a preset server and can accordingly start fine-tuning or go directly. This type of server costs money, of course, and in some areas of settings you are somewhat limited. You can also host a server yourself on your computer.The advantages are of course in the costs and also in the setting options, but your own computer must be running constantly, otherwise players can not play, you need a prior knowledge to configure the server, and you load the hardware properly, so that you often do not play yourself or you have to fight with lags and other problems. Therefore, we naturally look at the rental variant, so that you can get a CS:GO server without much effort and without major problems.

What must the server be able to do?

Basically, you can influence some things directly when buying, but not others. Depending on what you rent for a server and with which provider, the offer varies. For example, you can also rent root servers, on which you could then install Counter Strike and play from there. This has similar advantages and disadvantages as setting up a server on your own PC. You need previous knowledge and have to do a lot, but in the end you are more flexible and can theoretically also change the game at any time and is not bound to Counter Strike. However, if you book a CS:GO server directly, then you mainly have influence on the number of slots, i.e. how many players can enter the server, whether the server should be private or public (depending on your own preference) and what name the server should have. Most of the time there is also an option for additional memory, where you can already pack maps, so that the loading times are completed faster. Often there is also the option to allow advertising, which can save you a few euros, if the advertising does not bother you. You should definitely pay attention to the CPUs used for the respective server. Counter Strike: Global Offensive is very performance intensive and the servers should therefore run on the latest I5/I7 or Xeon Cpu's from Intel. For a good ping, the servers should also be located in Germany, otherwise there can be delays in the game. It is also important to look at the small print: The servers should always be up to date, so that you do not end up lagging behind the original patch. You should also pay attention to good support, so that you are not suddenly left alone with problems on a tournament day. As for the management of the server, you'll have to act according to your preferences. Some providers allow you to customize it via a database, others only provide a web interface where you can do the most important things and restart at the push of a button. An increased tick rate is often offered as well, which should improve events and movements. Since only a tick rate of 64 is used on official servers, this is not mandatory. In ESL, however, 128 tickrates are mostly used. From time to time direct packages are offered together with TeamSpeak servers. Make sure that you don't invest more for the servers than you would with another provider just for voice programs. For more information, check out our article on TeamSpeak servers.
