First-time viewers are given a free five-minute trial to get a taste of an interactive HUD, pro stats, advanced minimap and more.
Twitch’s Command Center first debuted with the Overwatch League and StarLadder Berlin Major 2019 is the first time it's used for CS:GO. Subscribers gain exclusive access to 11 additional channels with tactics information, player POV cameras, exclusive chat and realtime stats that are provided by StatsHelix.
