Since 2018, Valve has offered Dota Plus, a $4 per month Dota 2add-on that includes, among other perks, access to deeper post-game analytics and stats. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now getting something similar. In the patch notes for the game's latest update, Valve devotes a single line to CS:GO 360 Stats, a new $1 per month subscription service that'll get you access to match analytics from your competitive, premier and wingman games.
CS:GO 360 Stats for $0.99 per month ? Seriously ? Who wants to pay every month to keep his stats against the spinbots we have to fight every two games now— Pierre Dav (@piRdav) May 3, 2021
According to an FAQ spotted by Rock Paper Shotgun, players can sign up for the add-on directly within the game, but there's one significant catch: the game will only record your performance while you have an active subscription. It also won't keep a tally of your stats in casual and scrimmage game modes. Predictably, some in the CS:GO community aren't thrilled with the announcement. They point out that websites such as scope.gg offer free stat tracking, and that many games that are as old as CS:GO let players see how they've played in the past without paying anything extra.
