I am playing CS:GO through a family shared library. I can play online casual matches and bot matches however I can't play competitive matches through my account. However, if I login to my brother's account (he's the one who bought the game), I can play competitive matches. Why doesn't this work?

  • What do you mean by "can't"? Do you get an error message? – kotekzot Mar 9 '14 at 17:37

I believe only offline play is supported for a shared copy of CS:GO.

Trying to find an official statement from Valve, but the link above has users talking about this exact situation.

  • Yup, that's the issue. Just an FYI for anyone looking, this only applies to CS:GO Competitive matches - no other games (as far as I know). – Jon Mar 19 '14 at 19:58

You can't play CS GO online it will just keep loading for years if you waited that long. You have to buy your own copy of the game. Either you can just play with bots or buy the game.
