Cosmetic items for the 15th CS:GO Major, StarLadder Berlin, can now be purchased in-game.
In a recent update, Valve released everything Major-related in the Steam and CS:GO client, including the Berlin 2019 Viewer Pass, team stickers, team graffitis, and the pick-em challenge. The viewer pass is slightly different compared to the last pass that was available for the IEM Katowice Major, which took place in February.
The newest addition to the cosmetic, however, is the ability for players to purchase three souvenir packages that contain random weapon drops that can be redeemed during the Major. So when an event coin is upgraded, three souvenir packages are dropped for players based on the map played and the player MVP given out during the match.
The only problem with the sticker drop tonight is that Team Liquid’s logo on the team sticker isn’t the one that the organization submitted to either Valve or StarLadder, according to general manager Steve Perino. Liquid’s sticker for the Berlin Major was submitted for the last Major, IEM Katowice. It’s unclear whether Valve will change the design to the one Liquid supposedly put in.
The action in Berlin begins Aug. 23, starting with the New Challenger stage. It’ll pin eight returning challengers and minor challengers against each other for slots in the following New Legend stage.
