CSGOLounge发布关于今后发展公告

亲爱的CSGOLOUNGE以及DOTA2LOUNGE社区用户:

自成立以来,LOUNGE的目标是成为DOTA2以及CSGO电子竞技社区的娱乐服务,我们未曾考虑过将其作为现金赌博业务。CSGO和DOTA2中的虚拟物品不具备货币价值,并且任何与虚拟物品相关的社区行为仅仅意味着娱乐,而不是任何利益关系。

到2016年6月为止,我们未曾收取手续费或类似的费用,我们开使收取费用的目的是为了提高服务质量,为社区用户提供免费赠品,以及在未来添加新的特性到我们的服务内容中。

在近期围绕虚拟物品的事件以及Valve的官方公函后—我们当然收到了,但我们被排除在外,没有从Valve方面获得进一步的信息或交流。我们必须就如何处理菠菜作为社区网站和娱乐服务的问题做出决定。当前情况非常混乱,我们提供的不是运气的游戏,我们没有提供任何与现金或等价物品的交易服务。尽管事实如此,为了避免或者说降低这些混乱,我们决定取得在大多数国家的合法经营许可,这样我们能够接受社区玩家的电竞菠菜,即使是现金。

从2016.8.1,星期一开始,我们将开始限制各国家地区用户的菠菜功能—如果线上菠菜在该地区被禁止的话。如果您想要继续使用我们的服务,我们将添加额外的注册及验证方式,并且要求用户遵循新的服务条款。同时我们提醒您,我们的的服务仅适用于18岁以上的用户。

网站将依照最新的服务条款运行,任何与菠菜投注物品相关的交易将依照新的服务条款操作,并且仅对法律上不禁止菠菜的国家开放。

来自一下国家及地区的用户将无法使用菠菜功能,但仍可以取回之前放入及赢得的物品:

比利时、法国、法属圭亚那、根西岛、直布罗陀、爱尔兰、泽西岛、马提尼克、法属波利尼西亚、留尼汪岛、马约特、土耳其、西班牙、苏格兰、以色列、英国和美国。

以上列表可能变动,我们将随时提醒您。我们致力于为受影响地区的用户能继续菠菜提供解决方案。

同时,请用户知悉,我们对Valve给出的期限10天后您物品可能发生的事情不作任何保证。

感谢过去一年里这个伟大社区中的每一个用户,我们期待与您继续我们的旅程,并一起克服改变。我们的蓝图行有着激动人心的创意和功能,我们乐于在不久的将来向您展示它们!
网站的交易功能将照常运行,没有任何限制,全球可用。而且我们计划很快提高这项服务。

——–谨代表 Borewik, CSGOLounge & Dota2Lounge创始人以及Lounge团队。

Dear Community of csgolounge and dota2lounge,

From the very beginning, the lounge service was intended as an entertainment service for the esports community of Dota2 and CS:GO, and we have never considered it as a real money betting. Virtual items in CS:GO and Dota2 have no monetary value and any community interaction with the virtual items is meant only for entertainment, without any profit interest.

We did not collect any commission or similar until June 2016, where we started doing it in order to improve our items drafting and quality of winnings, compensate items losses due to issues related to our product or issues with Steamcommunity trading, to enable giveaways for the community and add more features to our service in near future.

After all the recent events around virtual items and the official letter by Valve, which we have received as well, we were left out alone without any additional information or communication by Valve on this matter. We had to make a decision on how to proceed with Lounges as community place and entertainment service. The situation is highly confusing – we are not offering games of luck, we are not offering any transactions with real money or equivalents. Despite those facts, in order to avoid or reduce the confusion, we have decided to acquire a license to legally operate in most of the countries and be able to accept the esports bets by our community, as if it would be real money.

Starting from Monday, 1st August 2016, we will start limiting the access to the betting functionality for users visiting us from countries and regions, where online esports betting is forbidden. We will add additional registration and verification process and we require you to comply with our new Terms of Service if you want to keep using our service. We also remind that our service is only for users who are at least 18 years old.

We will be operating according to the new terms and any transactions related to the items betting functionality will be handled accordingly to the new terms of service, and only on the territories, which do not forbid it by law.

Users from the following countries and regions will not be able to use the betting feature, but still be able to withdraw their previous winnings and deposits: Belgium, France, French Guiana, Guernsey, Gibraltar, Ireland, Isle of Man, Jersey, Martinique, French Polynesia, Reunion, Mayotte, Turkey, Spain, Scotland, Israel, United Kingdom and United States.

The list of countries may be subject to change, we will keep you informed. We are working on a solution for users from affected regions to stay engaged on Lounge.

Please be alerted, that we don’t provide any guarantee to what will happen with your items after the 10 days deadline given by Valve.

We would like to thank everyone who was part of this awesome community through the last years, and we are looking to continue our journey with you and walk through the changes together. We have exciting ideas and features in our roadmap, and we will be happy to show case them to you in the very near future!

The community trading part of our website will continue to operate as usual, without any limitations, world wide. And we are planning to improve this service with new features soon.

On behalf of Borewik, founder of CSGOLounge & Dota2Lounge
and the entire Lounges Team
