Rules and info.

Official group on Steam Better to join the Steam group instead of giving out Steam addresses when you join the group. The join system is set to auto for the group, so we can't see them.

Help us upgrade to a super group. Cake and beer promised but not guaranteed….

Tired of Chris trolling this section with Brony crap? Then make suggestions here anyways…

Operation Bloodhound update is up and here is the link to the blog post.


Ok I have seen lots of cosplays that use special effects like smoke, lighting and digital effects but real fire has been done by some cosplayers but for this Dota cosplayer was cosplaying Lina which in the video that I will link up the cosplayer that is getting lit on fire is a man and yes I know Lina is a female in the game but this is an expert by Táy Máy Tò Mò’s and it looks pretty cool when you take out digital effect and just go practical effects...well to a degree.

Lastly this one is a little silly news but Valve has hired a former Olympian Ja'Warren Hooker from the 2000 American sprinting team for the 2000 Summer games in Sydney, for more than two years now. Now I know what your thinking nerds getting a workout yeah right...Well in fact anyone nerds or not you have to at least have a daily exercise and Valve is stepping up with the workout regimens including yoga, pilates and meditation...Oh great like Valve time wasn't bad enough anyway from what I got this is actually working out and here from Ja'Warren Hooker and Gabe Newell.

Ja'Warren Hooker quotes:
"A happy and healthy employee is always a better thing to have,"

“We've just seen a lot of transformation, physically and mentally, at Valve."

Gabe Newell quotes:
"Like many companies in the tech industry, Valve employees work long hours, have a lot of stress, and need to manage the demands of both their personal and professional lives,"

“We're always looking for ways to improve the quality of life for both our employees and their families."

:bulletblue:New mission campaigns info:bulletblue:

Campaigns are comprised of missions that vary in difficulty and reward. Completing a mission rewards you with XP. Completing a challenge mission rewards challenge stars that help upgrade your Operation Bloodhound Challenge Coin.

When a member of the Coalition Taskforce goes rogue and joins The Phoenix, it falls on legendary sniper Sebastien Hennequet to form an elite unit to hunt him down. Join Sebastien as he teaches you the skills required to assassinate this vindictive operator.

:bulletblue:Adding XP system::bulletblue:

Play on official servers to gain XP and rank up your CS:GO profile Rank to show off to your friends. Your XP is determined by your won rounds ( in Competitive Mode ) or your score ( in all other modes ). Your first rank earned each week will reward you with a weapon drop. New campaign missions reward additional XP.

:bulletblue:Operation F.A.Q.::bulletblue:

How often can I complete missions?
With an Operation Bloodhound Access pass, you are able to complete two missions right away. Every day, your pool of available missions will increase by one. If you're out of missions, just check back later - a countdown timer will show you how many hours are left before you can make more progress in your campaigns.

How do I work on my mission?
Missions can be completed using official matchmaking for the specified game mode and/or map. If you’re not sure how to get into the right match, click on your mission in the Main Menu and select ‘Play’.

I worked on my mission but don’t see any progress, what happened?
Mission progress is only logged at the end of a match; you will not make any progress if you leave early.If you stay until the end and still do not see any progress, make sure you are in the correct game mode and/or map, and make sure there is at least one other human player in your server.When you are able to make progress in your mission, your mission status panel (below the scoreboard) will be ‘Active’.

How do I gain XP?
You will earn XP at the end of a match on official servers. In a Competitive match, your earned XP is determined by your rounds won. In all other game modes, your earned XP is determined by your score. Additionally, at the start of each week you will receive an XP bonus boost. During Operation Bloodhound, you can gain extra XP by completing missions.

What happens when I earn enough XP to gain a Rank?
Whenever you gain a Rank, your CS:GO profile Rank will increase and you will receive a new profile icon. Additionally, your first Rank earned each week will reward you with a weapon drop. If you have an Operation Bloodhound Access pass, your earned weapon drops will come from one of the exclusive Operation Bloodhound weapon collections: Cobblestone, Cache, Overpass, Gods and Monsters, The Rising Sun, and Chop Shop.

I haven't been earning any XP. What happened?
XP can only be earned on official servers, and is only earned at the end of a match; you will not earn any XP if you leave a match early. You can only earn XP when there is at least one other human player in your server.

Sorry to disturb, but I want to contribute this artwork made by me to your group.
The only trouble is that this artwork I made is a crossover, and thus I am a little
bit worried on what gallery folder should I contribute this artwork to. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.

Just a reminder, I can't post the requested image in this comment because
I do not own a DeviantArt Premium Membership.

your group for the benefit of the doubt.

Hello Orange-Box-Group,

I'm running a contest of "2nd Annual STEAM Contest"… . In my contest we are letting artists draw any videogame fanart they want from STEAM. 

Anyway I was wondering if you like to spread your message to the members if they would like to join my contest and I'm going to say I do have insane prizes this year and I thought the members would like to hear about it. However if you want to know the prizes it's STEAM gift cards. :D
DevinShadowV Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
