The developers over at Valve headquarters have just updated their Counter-Strike blog asking players to take part in a Steam survey for their upcoming title Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (thanks ^d).
Last week we launched the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta by giving 7,000 keys to current CSS and CS 1.6 players. Monday 2,000 keys went out to community sites around the world.
Today we are opening up our online survey to everyone. The next keys will be sent on the basis of this survey. If you don’t fill it out, you won’t be getting a key.
Over the coming months we will make selections from the survey participants. Sometimes we might add experienced players, other times new players. Sometimes 1.6 players, sometimes CSS players, sometimes people who have played neither.
So if your eager to help out and also try your luck at securing a beta key, then head over to the survey page which will open up a external program in Steam to scan your computer. As always, you can check out our game page for all the latest in news, trailers and screenshots.

I hope I get in but with the majority of my cs hours being back when WON and No-WON existed I highly doubt it.

lol i've never really been one for economics let alone weighing up my choices in counter-strike. I just go based on what weapon I feel like using, if I need to eco for that, so be it. I've never been good at awping because... well.. no skills. Give me an auto shotty + a good hiding spot and I'll make your children cry.

Which does what? Is this the hardware survey they do or do they scan it for previous versions of CS? What if I used to play cs 1.6 and CSS but no longer have them installed?

edit: Yep, hardware scan although "this data is not anonymous and will be shared with the author of the survey" is about all they have. No privacy disclaimers, no details about exactly WHAT info they take so they can go f*** themselves, I'll wait for the release.

Maybe, maybe not. Without knowing exactly WHAT they're taking from my computer I won't know. Do they scan browser history? Banking details? My name and address? What?

Would you allow someone to come into your house and take random photos & collect random information about you without knowing what they're going to take? No, you wouldn't. Computer security is no different.
