The Berlin 2019 viewer pass is now live in CS:GO as part of the August 14 patch and there is a ton of new content to dig through.
Included in the pass is a Berlin 2019 Event Coin, new challenges to compete, Stream.TV flair, Berlin 2019 Souvenir Packages, and more.
According to a CS:GO blog post, “Every time you upgrade your coin, you can redeem a Souvenir Package of the match of your choice.”[ad name=”article2″]
Additionally, 50% of the proceeds will be going to players and organizations competing at the major.
As we previously reported, Valve revealed the autograph stickers and sprays for the upcoming event.
In a bit of a mixup, Team Liquid’s Berlin major sticker is from last year’s. Luckily, however, the problem has since been fixed.
“Thank you to @CSGO for fixing our sticker in such a short amount of time! Super excited for the major and thank you everyone for all of the support!” Team Liquid’s General Manager Steve Perino said.
