After some Googling, it looks like they removed tiers (they initially had 3 EU tiers?) in 2016, there's only 1 pricing for anyone paying with Euro now. Seems like it has something to do with EU law actually.

i'm not calling you a liar, and i do know how people live in favelas, i am from Brazil, just that people have other priority with their money, but a game you can buy with 10 BRL, people are able to afford, the harder part is to get a computer, get good internet, people struggle to buy those things, i know, but 10 BRL, it's really cheap, and you can get even cheaper, that price you can't even get a real meal over here

3. Kids aren't paying the internet bills.

4. Kids don't have credit cards and in my country there is no other possible payment method.

5. Some people don't even know that the game is not free. The first thing that pops up in Google when you write Counter-Strike 1.6 is a free non-steam version, so why would someone want to buy it if they can get it for free with only one click?
1. To stay on your way, you could steal one.
2. If their parents buy them a computer, i am pretty sure they won't give them these few bucks extra for a game
3. Look number 2
4. again look number 2
5. the first thing my parents teached me was: nothing on earth is free. What did your parent teach you?

Our parents teach us to save money. We dont live in Germany like you do, litterly the MOST rich contry in EUROPE by a mile. Youth unemployment is 30/40% in most "poor" Europe contrys, while Germany is 5%~ and going down every year. You live in a rich contry and you had rich parents your youth life, stop judging other kids that dont have the same luck as you do.

Why are you defending a multi bilionaire company? Valve only cares about money, not their fans/community or people in general.

Why would someone (that lives in poor contrys) pay 8€ for a 20+ years old game that gets no updates, no bug-fixes, nothing... dispite being in the top-10 most currently played game on steam. The AMXX/Modding community has offered to help Valve in Goldsrc updates, for free, and they refused, they litterly want CS:1.6 to die so everyone plays CS:GO and wastes IRL money on shitty Skins and Cosmetics.

I'm not going to judge on anyone here.
But you and all others here have to accept and respect that this board does not support your doing.
This board has to respect the law. Get that in your mind and stop arguing.

Sure, I remember asking mine to buy me a game that was worth 5 euro when I was little. The answer was something like: "ARE YOU CRAZY??? GIVING MY CREDIT CARD INFORMATION TO THE INTERNET??? DO YOU KNOW HOW EASY IT IS FOR SOMEONE TO STEAL YOUR INFORMATION???"

No, thanks.

Sure it gets updates. The last update broke thousands of plugins.

It's been a month since CS gambling is dead. Slightly players has been switching to PUBG.
