For those of you that do not already know, before we were FCG we went by another name. That name was CS-Purgatory. If you haven’t already guessed, the “CS” was short for “Counter Strike”. Arguably one of the most popular first person shooters of all time. Do you know what our old community hosted? You guessed it! Counter Strike servers! After a six year run, we shut down our last server due to player inactivity (at that time the game was 12 years old and had run it’s course). It was a sad day for all of us.

Today, I am VERY excited to share the news with you that we are currently hosting the next generation of Counter Strike – “Counter Strike: Global Offensive”. We have only one server as a trial for the time being but plan to grow to the same size as CSP was in it’s hay day. For those of you out there that have been blessed by the Valve gods and received a beta key – The server is up! Lets get our frag on! …For those that have not yet been so lucky to have received a beta CS:GO key – DON’T GIVE UP! Valve has upped the handout of new keys ten fold. FCG is also in the workings of having a community CS:GO beta key raffle (more on that as information from Valve is received).

FCG is proud to announce the new CS:GO server to our fleet of already popular BF3 servers. Keep in mind that both the CS:GO client and server are in beta mode, and as FCG helps in the detection and reporting of bugs/glitches/crashes, there is still a long road before the code is stable. If you happen to be on the new CS:GO server, and it crashes – Please note the time/map/player count/etc… and report it to our forums so that we can in return report the crash data to our GSP and Valve.

Server IP Address: 64.74.97.167:27015

Cheers!
