As part of your Viewer Pass purchase you receive unlimited team graffiti for the duration of the Major. To select or change your equipped team graffiti, find your Event Coin in your CS:GO Inventory, click on it and select 'Choose Team Graffiti'.

I am one point short of my next Event Coin upgrade and the Major just ended! Can I earn additional points?

No. All available challenges toward your Event Coin are shown on the 'View Coin Challenges' screen.

I did not receive a point for a challenge I completed! Who can help with this?

There may be a delay in completing challenges (like watching a match live) and receiving points for them on the 'View Coin Challenges' page. If you have completed a challenge and it is not reflected on your challenges page, you may need to wait a few hours for the point(s) to show.

If you are watching through Twitch, we recommend double checking that you have correctly linked your Steam account. To receive credit for watching a live match, all you need to do is watch several consecutive rounds; you can check back later in the day to confirm you have received credit for watching.
