MGMaster and then rank fuck up and now Im Silver 4.
Now since deranking is so easy Im trying to get to Silver 1.
I stopped playing cs recently but I was supreme
I stopped caring about my rank these days.
I was obsessed with it when I started and got pissed they put me in Silver 1 even though I was doing well in those 10 games.
But I eventually climbed up, that's pretty much the norm.
That still doesn't make me feel any better
Should be a wake up call for you to realize your previous LEM rank was hyper inflated, giving you the motivation to start climbing again just like when you picked up the game for the first time.
Too poor to buy hacks like a proper player.
Like seriously, why are they so expensive nowadays, I ain't paying more than 5$ for your shitty script that will be useless on the next patch.
>get up to mg2 from silver 3
>ranking up takes forever
>lose two matches in mg2 because sources
>drop to mg, hang there for a while
>play again this week
>derank every time I lose a match
>back to nova 1
I'm done taking this shit seriously.
It's fine. I was feeling burnt out of CS anyway. I'm thinking I'm gonna take a break for a while.
Its shit anyway at my new rank after the sale
besides now I can play more insurgency
CS:GO is pretty shit.
>have to stand still to be accurate
>have to crouch to be accurate
>your bullets dont go where your crosshairs are pointing.
>have to play bullshit amounts of games through casual to get into compet
Shittiest competitive game in existence.
I was DMG, then down to MGE, then back up to DMG, and now I'm MG2 like a proper shitter.
I don't care so much about the ranks (everyone is deranking right now), but every single game I play I get matched up against smurfs with <100 hours and either win 16-0 or lose 0-16. It's absolutely horrible and I don't enjoy the game at all.
Any tips how to make CS fun again when matchmaking is like this?
Actually, it gave me a wake up call to stop playing the game. I have moved to r6siege. It's way more fun.
>have to stand still to be accurate
If you're using an assault rifle. Shotguns, SMGs, and pistols all have pretty reliable accuracy while moving. Shotguns can even be fired accurately while jumping through the air.
>have to crouch to be accurate
Crouching has 0 effect on accuracy, merely reduces recoil distance of how far bullets stray from the pattern.
>your bullets dont go where your crosshairs are pointing
Not every FPS has to be Quake 3.
>have to play bullshit amounts of games through casual to get into compet
As opposed to all other competitive games in existence where you can jump right into ranked play and know exactly what you're doing and not annoy anyone?
>Crouching has 0 effect on accuracy, merely reduces recoil distance of how far bullets stray from the pattern.
>Crouching has 0 effect except that it does.
Do you know what accuracy means?
>Not every FPS has to be Quake 3.
He didnt mention anything about Quake, autism?
Crouching still makes shots more accurate.
>Accurate range: 11.21m (100% of shots will fall within a 30 cm circle.)
While standing and spraying with AK47
>Accurate range: 14.13m (100% of shots will fall within a 30 cm circle.)
While crouching and spraying with AK47
First shot is 30m vs 40m
>Master guardian before update
>Derank down to Gold 2
Why do I always queue with retards and griefers?
I've bounced around from Nova 1 to Nova 4 but never managed to make it out of that. Right now I'm nova 3. I wanna derank to silver really bad though I want to see what it's like down there when I started playing I was with a bunch of friends who were nova 4 and mgs and stuff so I got stuck in the nova rank immediately and never got to see it.
>You still get matched up against the same skill level
>Get queued with people who don't know map calls
>Don't walk when they should
>Don't make any calls
>Only use the mic to scream and spew dank memes
>Constantly get top frag when I'm not even that good
Nah, ranks are shit
i was gn3 at the winter update and stopped playing for a month
i came back and i was suddenly getting ranked with sem's
now 5 games with 2 losses later im at gn1 and still getting ranked with them
>mfw when i finished my first match with all sems except me
I'd like too, but I am a poorfag
Also >>322906436 and
Literally. LITERALLY the same thing
No, you fucking retards. They're different things entirely.
>Made a picture to argue against the fucking dictionary
>Made a picture
The whole fucking internet agrees with me.
Nah, it works the same everywhere.
Not him, but...
He's actually right. For example, this important distinction is used in the entire scientific community, to clarify whether experiments and measurements are close to the true-value, and how consistently they are.
This also applies to shooters. Refer to the image to see the difference.
A week ago I was an AK.
After they reworked how ranking works, I could win 4 consecutive games, but at the first loss I'd derank.
So now I'm a gold 2 and anybody who isn't smurfing can't fucking even touch me.
They encouraged smurfing even more by deranking everyone :\
I'm really new and only played one comp match in my life. Practicing like fuck but this shit is still insanely hard. Must I master that entire AK47 recoil? I mostly end up bursting or tapping most of the time anyway, and if I spray, when do I need more than 10 bullets anyway?
Quick question: which one should I be using? The deagle or the revolver?
That's the only reason why I hate the rework of ranks. I use to have people that actually knew how to play and now I have people that are clueless novas.
I didn't play much mm already but since I saw that reddit post that pretty much confirmed that at least 1 in 3 or 4 games will have a cheater that gets banned, with many more that never get banned, I lost all interest.
On the lower levels yeah it is. Usually just filled with gold novas - DMGs who are fucking proud of their rank and don't want to lose it so they place Faceit instead.
Once you get to faceit level 7+ or 1800+ elo it gets better. I only play it with a five stack though nowadays.
>Can't even play with my friends because I've deranked too much
With good reflexes, shooting 7 deagle shots in close quarters is fucking lethal.
With being really really good, shooting with the revolver inside a smoke can get you a kill.
With having mediocre skills you can use berettas\five-seven tec-9 and kill more people regardless, so why even bother with those 2 guns in the first place.
The elo doesn't fucking change. THE ONLY THING THAT HAS CHANGED IS THE PICTURE OF YOUR RANK
YOU'RE STILL QUEUED WITH PEOPLE OF YOUR LEVEL
PEOPLE WHO QUEUE WITH YOU ARE ON YOUR SKILL LEVEL
YOU ARE WHERE YOU DESERVE TO BE
YOU ARE A FUCKING SHITTER
GOD FUCKING DAMMIT I'M MAD
Since everyone is deranking, now LEM+ players won't play on their main anymore to avoid deranks. Instead they well smurf even more with their nova 4 accounts, making all of this operation useless.
Let's not talk about hackers, people are getting so scared and salty that they download and activate hacks mid-match in order to keep their ranks.
Also, going from 2aks to ak2 after a game I WON with 13/9 rateo is fucking horrible and makes no sense.
>Topfrag carry all games with new rank system
>Not playing with nova shitters
There are people that are still LEM after the update and still haven't deranked with loses with like 200 wins on their belt.
>work my way up from Silver 3 to MG2 in the course of 3 months of on and off playing
>new update comes out
>lose 3 game because of throwers
>back to Nova 1
>win 5 games in a row
>still Nova 1
What the fuck is going on
Yeah I know. I look at it on my list of installed Steam games but I don't feel the urge to play anymore. Most of my CS:GO friends are playing BO3 nowadays on the PC. Been having fun playing with them on my days off from work.
if you're not easily around mge then you have some serious fundamental issues in how you play. try fixing your sensitivity or crosshair placement, if that doesn't work your pc must have a lot of input lag from a shitty monitor/shitty settings/low framerate
>topfrag carry in nova 3
>enemy team has topfrag carry who is really a supreme smurf
>still lose to smurfs regardless of all the solutions the game proposed
>I was about to get eagle 2 days ago
according to your example, this would be classified as accurate (even if it's imprecise)
Started out as Silver Elite Master. Got carried up to MGE. Then dropped down to MG2 for awhile before finally being stuck at MG1 without de-ranking. I feel like I need to de-rank. I lose and lose but never de-rank. I even played with a silver one friend and lost.
how do you know how the system works?
sounds like you're just salty because you fucking blow at the game. maybe you should spend more time getting better and less time trying to figure out the ranking system for pubs?
the system is flawed but it isn't that flawed, it goes by mvp stars/adr. you can be a few ranks off due to shitty teams but you won't go from eagle - > nova 3 if you actually deserved that rank
>when Nova 2 teammate shoots you when trying to kill the enemy instead
>when you get kicked because a Nova 2 teammate walked into your line of fire
I played this game for over a year. I was stuck in silver one for like 4 months, then I got better and quickly became a Nova 2. I started really putting effort into it, I got better, I got good friends who can communicate on steam, watch competitive gaming to get to know strategies despite I find it fucking ridicolous...and when I finally get 2aks I derank to nova 4, then to nova 2 with 20 wins and 5 losses in a week.
I don't think I can give this game another chance after these shitty updates, I wasted my time only to get paired with smurfs, deranked people from higher ranks and teammates who don't know the difference between aps and palace in Mirage.
Fuck man I was LE before the fucking patch. Even when I dropped down to MGE which was already bad enough I won like 10 games in a ron, my whole recent history was wins. Then I lost two in a row and got down ranked. What the actual fuck is wrong with this game now.
I live in a third world country, at least internet wise (Italy). I have copper and I get 96 stable ping only after 1 am. I always loved multiplayer games, so I organized my life in order to play with my friends regardless of how it's hard with the little time I have to sleep.
I got 3 deranks in 4 days with 10 wins and 3 losses. I am seriously tired of this shit.
Before the update I was nova 4. I could lose 5 games in a row, then tie and not get deranked. I wasn't really good. Then I got 11 wins (11) after the update, I still didn't rank up. Today I play ONE solo game and end up nova 3.
What the hell is wrong with this system. I didn't get deranked when I deserve it and now I can't rank up when I do?
>tfw the game ends, your team is 4 nova 2s, you're nova 4, the enemy has 2 silver 6s and 3 aks
>I got 120 points in a game where the enemies where standing still at spawn to derank and my friends left on purpose to let me rank up.
>I got 60 points as carry against a whole 2 ranks higher team in a game that ended 16/14 for us
the point system is fucking stupid and can be abused so much
if the match was hard as fuck then you shouldn't win many points because you're playing at their skill level meaning your points are correct
how fucking hard is it for you shitty idiots to understand?
Deranked from LEM after the ranks nerf
Have been getting a real shitshow of skill levels in my recent MM games.
I was nova 4, now I'm nova 2.
But I don't get any russians in queue.
I have a friend who is now in silver, he gets only russian teammates.
Guess what this update was for? It separated normal people from inbred northern asians\western europeans cykafest noob motherfuckers.
If Valve really wanted to prevent smurfing, hacking and unlegit rankclimbing they just should have made the game 30 euros\34 dollars on steam.
It's so cheap right now that making another account literally costs less than eating at mcdonald's.
>DMG before update
>decide to play a game after the update
>up against a blatant waller, lose, dreank
>win 2 more games
>1 more close game, lost 14-16
>derank to mg2
>win 5 more games, top 2 each time
>end up on same team as 3 derankers
>fuck you, you're mg1 now
what is life
same shit happened to me right now
>5 easy wins where i'm first or second
>LEM again soon.jpg
>1 lost match 16:14
Because my baddie friends and GF cant compete and get pissed losing when i play on my main because suddenly the whole enemy team is hackers. Better to just buy an acct for 7 dollars and play at there level with them.
>Because my baddie friends and GF cant compete and get pissed losing when i play on my main
you can't queue with people that much lower than you
fucking silver trash
This is also true you cant which is why my friend would hop on his smurf i would play his main just to play with the novas. The whole account jumping just too bothersome. Know what the best part is i had a bunch of cs accts back fron the won network days.
All my smurfs have 5 year coin with less then 100 hours.
you're blaming the update because it's the result of hte update but you're retarded if you think it's somehow not supposed to happen
with rank changes, you were assigned to a certain rank based on your previous one but it just didn't show until you played a loss
i.e you are literally where you're supposed to be
>all these people who complain about being placed in their appropriate rank after the update
You're still as shitty, your rank just showcases it now.
It should if the distribution is way off the bell curve. Valve also said that the tanking system will now automatically correct all the anomalies in the bell curve. The system needs some time to even out. After that it shouldn't happen anymore and all returns to normal.
>Make it to Gold Nova 3 at some point
>Friend starts the game but GN3 is too much for him so I try to derank so we can play together
>Drop games and quit and try to do badly
>Win one game and rank up, this happens until Gold Nova Master or something
I just wanted to play with my buds without them getting shit on and not enjoying themselves.
>Let's assume we have ranks 1 and 2.
>In the old system having 500 ELO rating made you rank 2.
>You have 550 so you are placed in rank 2.
>The distribution is off so there is a patch changes the requirement for rank 2 a 1000 ELO rating.
>After the patch you win multiple rounds gaining +300 ELO rating
>You lose one and lose 100 ELO rating.
>Your ELO rating is 750 and that puts you into rank 1.
>You get demoted.
The visible rank doesn't matter, the invisible Elo rank does. That didn't change during the patch, they just changed what Elo values are assigned to which rank. When you dropped ranks, the game isn't suggesting you got worse, it's just changing what the ranks are called.
Yeah, being stuck with bad teammates is frustrating, but that affects everyone at every rank. The only way around that is to play with friends and stop soloqueueing.
You fail to factor in griefers, derankers, smurfs, and hackers.
Losing a lot of ELO wouldn't seem so fair when you have four teammates fucking around and purposing causing a loss.
Maybe because a big flashy RANK UP animation is more exciting than watching a number crawl up or down. I don't know. Some games that use an Elo ranking system do show the number, I think that's how Dota 2 works, Valve just chose not to with CSGO.
Good point. There are ton of people who would like to see their ELO. There isn't really a good reason why you wouldn't show it, I think. Maybe it would make it easier to see what type of gameplay affects the rating you get and that would be bad. People would find ways to abuse it.
But really, why care about rank? Your personal skill level is what matter. If you are good, you are good. You don't need ELO rating or a rank to show it.
I went from LE to DMG, stop crying if you are upset about losing your rank. You don't deserve to rank up if you would rather bitch on an image board instead of getting better at the game. ESEA is where it's at anyway, you get surprise bitcoins and run into less retards.
Also tip for people struggling who feel like they are getting worse at the game: Unbind your scoreboard, play the game one round at a time. Kills aren't everything, there is this mentality that kills are everything, they aren't. When you're any rank and aren't playing well don't let the scoreboard faze you, it will only make you tilt. Unbinding my scoreboard helped me get out of the MGs into LE.
They really should just put in an option to show the number
people don't have to turn it on, but I can't see any reason why they wouldn't just include it
Dota 2 shows your number, so why cant this
"Why do you care about ranks? To show ur gud at vidya xdxd"
I care about ranks because at this point I won't be able to enjoy the game if my teammates at least don't know the map, basic ak\p90\m4 spray and are below 14 years old.
The lower I go in ranks, the more 8 years old shouting "GIBE BOMB CYKA" I meet, and usually they play in flashy "XD MLG CLAN"s, so I get a full team of those.
The more I go up with ranks, the less of these motherfuckers I meet and the more I can enjoy the game.
Also, on lower ranks there are a lot of fucking hackers and smurfs, especially on Nova.
That's why I wanted to stay ak2 instead of deranking.
I don't believe this. There is ALWAYS people who are willing to play with you again if you did well in a match.
>play a mtach
>add people who played to your friendlist
>ask if you can play with them
>you propably can
>they might have friends who will play with you
>do this for a week and friendlist is full of CS players at the same level as you
currentyear and people still haven't learned the benefits of internet. I would almost say that you deserve to play with retards if you can't even get to know people with the same interests as you on the fucking internet.
I can play from around 2am to 4 am. How many people, even real life friends, have the same possibility? I cannot play in the afternoon, when internet traffic is high, because I'd get 200+ ping. I cannot play in the morning because I'm not a betafuck and I have work to do.
My steam friends invite me to play CS:GO all the time, but I can join only if they're playing in a spawn of time where I am available as a teammate.
You are basically saying to me that I shouldn't play the game when I want to, nor alone, because lower ranks are shit. That I should be PLANNING competitive matchmaking. That I should make a passtime STRESSFULL. Sorry but I'm not that much salty man.
Besides, the game doesn't come with the "you are obliged to socialize with other players" alert sign, in fact someone could consider gaming something to get away from people from time to time.
English is not my native tongue either, I'm European, so you'd also force me to write in text chat or risk to be mishunderstood by others because I've a strong accent.
You know how this could be fixed?
If the game wasn't available to every pleb kid with their parent's paypal or if Russia had their own servers.
