well here's my take on why they made the game free..~ Ever since games like overwatch and fortnite came out they popularized cosmetics which is a way of stylizing your character/hero maybe adding skins etc. unlike some games where you can pay for levels and stuff. Ever since this became popular people has been spending a horrendous amount of money, GRANTED it's optional and it doesn't give you any game advantage people have been attracted to these types of stuff. In my opinion (which i got from a youtube video and did some research for myself) companies are actually getting the next generation to be spending more virtual items which in turns profits the company, if you don't believe me do your research. This is a marketing strategy done my the devs of cs;go and it's turning in their favor. 

Well! please don't hate ;D it's just my opinion thanks for reading!

I'd agree 50% most people do love buying skins etc and although it's got no advantage it still is enjoyable for people as they get to have their own certain styles and so on. Definitely increasing profits for company's easily because of it but they're trying to join the BR scene and it's not worked.

The game was just dying so they needed a way to make it popular again they did this with almost all the newer operations they came out in times of lower player pop and with skins in the game they still had a way to monetize the game. And with site like g2a they went making much money off the steam games sales as they were years ago

After they made it free it pretty much went downhill. I use cheats on this game and I can tell you no matter how many times they change the anti-cheat a bypass will be released the next day. All Valve does now is release more cases.

Well...it might as well not be free anymore. The only way you can play Ranked or get XP, drops or anything really is by having Prime. Already Valve is doing mass cleanup with 10K accounts being banned in a day.

(You also can't get Prime because no more XP by playing unranked...and you cant play ranked without Prime. So basically if you're looking to get into competitive CS:GO, you need to pay.)
