Why is the new ranking system so terrible?
>win 7, lose one, get deranked
I understand that they're fidgeting with the numbers to make them more in line with your skill group rather than the displayed rank but they didn't even tell anyone about it.
It's incredibly discouraging since I personally went from GN2 to Silver 2 in less than ten games.
its not that its terrible its that now in the lower ranks you either get a fuck ton of smurfs, or some random guy whose like 4 ranks above magically gets put into your game.
me and my 3 buds queued today and we're all ranging from mge-mg1 we get paired with our 5th guy who was random and hes supreme master first class somehow, and we smashed the other team 16-2 and their ranks were all nova 4 with one mg2,
its also pretty bs cuz before the update i was LE with a 6 game winstreak, ever since then every game ive lost i deranked im now mg1, and im unfairly destroying the competition,
Hopefully they'll get it right and the ranks will balance themselves, but they can't just adjust a player's rank so we gotta just keep playing comp and we'll all get put in our place. Until then it's a clusterfuck
>go from GE to MGE
>no more pressure to be amazing
>Was LEM before Shift
>Shift happened hit global
>Reverts back and go down to DMG
Yeah, MMR sure didnt change. Happened to pros aswell who were always global are now sitting on Eagle
I just started playing competative about a month ago. Got placed into silver elite, then ranked up to sem, won like 6 games and lost one and immediately got deranked. Then few games later they place me back into sem and left me there. Yesterday got place into gold, haven't lost a match yet but I have a feeling that as soon as I do I'm going to get deranked.
Was it always like this? What's the point?
I was LEM, I got on after about 3 months of not playing, it put me at Nova 3. I lost my first one then won 5 in a row easily. They didn't even put up a fight.
I actually like this new ranking system because it basically gave me a free smurf.
>get my rank
Kill me senpai. Why am I so terrible?
the biggest issue in all this is that they implemented the rank changes at the same time CSGO was on sale, basically win/win for smurfs
>hard as balls to go over DMG and LE
>friend has been stuck between them for months and months
>suddenly, ban waves happen
>friend reaches Global Elite a week later
Even my friend though it was total bullshit.
If you're that bad, it's just because you have no game sense. It sometimes takes a while to develop awareness in a game. Learning all the angles, learning where people are gonna pop out, learning how to aim properly, pre-aiming, etc. Just keep playing it and rack up a bunch of wins and eventually you'll develop better game sense.
This is the real issue, it's not merely "discouragement" or not having a fancier graphic, it's that there was in fact some actual meaning behind it in terms of ability that's gotten thrown out of balance for the time being. Hope that like >>323409362 says it'll all work itself out sooner rather then later, but in the mean time you've got times we're ostensibly same-ranked teams are ludicrously, hilariously unbalanced and one of them ends up getting giggle stomped by the side with the "Silver 3" guy who was legendary master a few days earlier.
If you truly care to get better, it will happen, just watch Pro's/better players play. Practice aim, and don't be a moron to your team and you'll get better.
When I started playing I got placed into Silver 1 since CSGO was my first ever PC game, and the only FPS game I ever played other than COD zombies and casual stuff, and even after 100 wins I was still in Silver 1, but I enjoyed the competitive aspect, and had some good but autistic friends to play with constantly and after I got out of silver which was after about 140 comp wins, I started flying through the ranks and at about 300 wins I got LEM, and eventually GE, After the rank shift I'm back at LEM, but honestly if you enjoy the game you'll get better with time
one thing that i did like about the update is that its a lot harder to get carried or boosted to a higher rank, before i would mm everytime i lost my rank and get ak easy only playing 3 times a week, after the update played with a few friends who are global( they usually play esea but for some reason wanted to valve mm and needed a fifth so i said ok) we won, i think i got like 10 frags total maybe and got place in silver 4, which i think is pretty fair for someone like me who never plays.
No one forced you to open this thread. Why didn't you just hide it?
http://steamcommunity.com/id/time-wasted/ been global for awhile, games not hard
its takes the same skill to rank up now, the reason people are losing their rank like after one match is because they havent played since the ranks were calibrated. ive lost like 2-3 on global and havent lost my rank, same with on my smfc alts. also not sure why people are complaining about the ranks when you're playing against the same skill people (hidden elo) regardless of display rank
>used to play with a bunch of friend

>friends stopped playing a month or so after as well
I miss it so much. But at the same time I really don't want to play the game.
>game has fairly accurate bullet spread that's way more predictable than almost all other competitive shooters
>suddenly it's the single most RNG heavy game on this planet
How come this is the one thing people like to complain about? Is there simply no other decent complains to be had? It so. They the game is way better than I give it credit for.
yeah i think its mostly people who were carried to a rank that are the most pissed. especially the twitch streamers (girls mostly). had a friend who kept saying he is getting worse and didnt understand the changes, which if people just bothered reading the updates they would understand.
>that guy who plays CS and thinks he's hardcore or good at videogames
>>game has fairly accurate bullet spread that's way more predictable than almost all other competitive shooters
I just got back into playing since my bro kept harassing me about it.
Apparently I'm Silver 1 but I have 100 competitive wins and I'd consider myself decent at least.
Does rank decay over time or what?
>so what game is hardcore and makes you good at video games?
none, but a lot machine like CS is especially funny.
the guns don't have a regular spray pattern, and if you are moving AT ALL when you shoot your bullets will leave the barrel at 30-90 degrees.
The system is automated now and will automatically shift the system in a way that the bell curve is achieved. Of course this means that at first we will see heavy movement to one direction. After all is evened out it SHOULD return to normal.
>the guns don't have a regular spray pattern
Except you know. They do.
>and if you are moving AT ALL when you shoot your bullets will leave the barrel at 30-90 degrees.
And yet people who aren't totally shit can learn compensate for it and be damn accurate.
Your experience should be the same no matter if you start now or if you have started before. Only thing that is changing is the icon for your rank. People are getting mad over a image. Your ELO is still the same, only the distribution of what ELO matches what rank was changed.
>Except you know. They do.
they don't. you don't understand what well defined means. you cannot predict where the bullets will go, especially if you're moving.
it's literally stand still and make the first shot or pray you win the number lottery.
so what you're saying is
>yeah it's complete RNG if you're moving at all, or after the first, or maybe if you're lucky the third, shot, so you have to use these "tactics" to compensate for the RNG
blah blah blah rng blah blah "u tink ur good kid" blah blah 300+ posts until archived
Could we just skip this one guys? I'm not in the mood to dump all my shit.
>yeah i mean it's RNG if you're moving at all but if you just don't move then you can fire 1 shot in the direction of the cursor
>just stand still
>just ignore the bad parts!
i mean this isn't even mentioning the other reasons why the game is bad, like the fact that you can be killed by the most popular sniper rifle if you're shot anywhere in the body, or by any of the guns if you're shot anywhere in the body after taking 5pts of damage
thanks for proving my point.
>game has fairly accurate bullet spread that's way more predictable than almost all other competitive shooters
And those competitive shooter have an excuse for horribly inaccurate hipfire because you can use the sights in those shooters while you can only use the sights in CS:GO if the gun has a scope. CS:GO has literally no excuse for the horribly inaccurate hipfire if it's gonna force you to hipfire and last I checked the soldiers aren't muppets so they shouldn't have bullets flying every which way because they're flailing around while firing.
just proves my point.
who the fuck likes to play an FPS where you have to stop moving every 5 seconds to make A SINGLE SHOT that will be accurate?
Eh, if you don't like it, don't play it. I like it because it makes just running and gunning less viable but that's just me.
> the most popular sniper rifle if you're shot anywhere in the body
Just learn to smoke or avoid getting in it's sight. AWP is easy to deal with if you know what to do.
anybody who wants to play a strategic shooter
Every single counter strike thread
every single niggering thread the same 2 niggers complain about the same exact thing, when they probably tried cs for half an hour, got shit on, and quit
every single thread
>Just learn to smoke or avoid getting in it's sight. AWP is easy to deal with if you know what to do.
>just don't get hit!
>just don't ever get in his sight!
these aren't valid defenses. if you are ever in the sight of an even halfway competent guy with an AWP you will die, every time, because all he needs to do is graze you with his single accurate shot.
whats it's like being bad at video games?
>a strategic shooter
i laughed at your post and the webm
>two guys standing still firing until one of the RNG bullets hit
it's like something straight out of morrowind
Except I've got 250 hours in CS:GO and have spent roughly 20 of those practicing my recoil control and even I realize this shit is inexcusable
>inb4 you use the same "y-you're j-just bad kid y-you're probably a s-s-silver" excuse because that's the only defense you have against atrocious spray patterns
>these aren't valid defenses
They are. You have 2 bomb sites for a reason and many ways to get there and flank them. Smokes are used to block off their line of sight in case where you HAVE to go there. And lastly, 2 players will get awp down. You have so many tools to get around AWPs.
Got this game last week.
So far I really suck, can I get some pro tips please?
>practicing recoil patterns
holy shit lmao why just click on the heads
Because even the first shot will miss 50% of the time even when you're standing still and crouched but yet there will be a bullet hole in the wall directly behind the guy's head
how can you play for 250 hours and still be so shit at clicking a head that you have to blame the game?
This. The people who complain about AWP are the same people who would complain about projectile spam in fighting games. They simply don't know how to deal with them and call it bad design. The fault is never with them.
>supposed to be skill based
>people of lesser skill can abuse X to gain a large advantage over everyone else
you shouldn't have to "deal with it." that sort of thing should not be in a competitive game, ever.
But there isn't "large advantage". It's a type of play which also has counter play. This is the basics of the basics of any game.
You use tools and the enemy use tools that counter that. Smokes/avoiding fights/rushing AWP with 2 people are counter to AWPs.
Just because you don't KNOW the counter play doesn't make it an advantage.
>>people of lesser skill can abuse X
They can't, because any person of "higher skill" will use their map knowledge, grenades and aim to easily deal with them and cuck them out of their expensive one-shot-wonder gun. AWP is only really good for holding a corner or a length. Smoke that corner, flash and you can push an AWPer out of position pretty easily.
>People of lesser skill can beat other low skilled players with thing
If you can't just deal with it you're trash really.
>Smokes/avoiding fights/rushing AWP with 2 people are counter to AWPs.
smoke isn't a counter because you can just wait until the guy comes out of the smoke and 1shot him. are you retarded? the only real way to deal with it is rushing with a bunch of people and you can't do that if you play with idiots, which is again RNG.
smoke isn't a counter. flash isn't a counter because anyone who isn't an idiot can spin around or has a macro to spin around in <.2 seconds set and can avoid the flash and 1shot you when you come in.
Why would you run THROUGH the smoke when the AWP's there?
Why wouldn't you stack flashes with your team so not even turning around would counter it?
Pick your battles man. Your objective is to plant/defuse the bomb not kill everyone.
>smoke isn't a counter because you can just wait until the guy comes out of the smoke and 1shot him.
I don't think you understand how smoking AWP works. You block THEIR line of sight so they can't see you and if they try to reposition, YOU are the one who is going shoot them when they come out of smoke. Not the other way around. Smoking yourself out is fucking retarded.
> the only real way to deal with it is rushing with a bunch of people and you can't do that if you play with idiots, which is again RNG.
Just play with friends.
>the guns don't have a regular spray pattern
they exactly do and it's exactly what makes CS so shitty. It is 100% knowing the retarded spray pattern and adjusting for headshots accordingly.
I lold because two Ts camping T-side D2 middle with AWPs is just so CS. Some things never change.
You smoke AWPer's position. Like you want to push D2 long, and enemy AWPer will probably sit there and watch double doors, so you throw a smoke from T side so it lands on the spot he sits and then push, he''ll have to relocate. Then you guys just push and hit him while he hauls his ass to safety. You need to remember that, unless they stacked site, it's 5 of you vs. 2-3 of them (unless you did something terribly wrong, like rushing B and then standing in the tunnels and waiting forever), so trades are okay.
>YOU are the one who is going shoot them when they come out of smoke
the awp player can and will just wait until the smoke is gone.
>Why wouldn't you stack flashes with your team so not even turning around would counter it?
>having a competent team
>having a mic
>the awp player can and will just wait until the smoke is gone.
Wait for what??? You know there are objectives in this game? Unless he literally sits on a bombsite (in which case, rush him with your team, even the worst shitters will realize if you ask them to RUSH AND PLANT), you don't have to kill every CT.
And you know, if you think AWP is so good, why don't you buy your own? Just win the pistol round. Should be easy since nobody can buy an AWP on a pistol round.
>Not having a competent team even when solo
Being silver isn't RNG kiddo ;)
>the awp player can and will just wait until the smoke is gone.
And at that point, you have already taken the site. Now the AWP has to come and kill you. And guess what? It's now you who will hold corners and kill the bastard.
>long climb from silver 2 calibration across 50 games
>win a game and earn MGE
New ranking kicks in
what the FUCK do you want from me valve, i bought your shitty useless operation payback coin, why do you steal all i have worked for
i never get mad at videogames, but wow this downward collapse of mmr is really annoying me now
>I'm throwing lol i don't even care xD
Is left clicking really that hard for you?
I play CS and I knew, from the times of 1.6, that it's a shit game.
It's 10% crazy accuracy and 90% prefiring the most common spots.
It feels good though. And tactics are fun, getting a feel for the economy can fuck the opposing team more than shooting.
My main has stayed global even after defeat streaks. Both of my smurfs who were also global went to DMG after a placement match as I had not played them in some time. DMG and LE are still a joke, people there are total shitters.
maybe it got included when he loaded some retarded "fps" config. I can't think of anyone who'd willingly want a fucked up bob like that bar old 1.3-1.6 days where setting bob to certain values would make people slightly taller and make their heads stick up from the boxes they'd normally be able to hide behind
what are you going on about?
> bar old 1.3-1.6 days where setting bob to certain values would make people slightly taller and make their heads stick up from the boxes they'd normally be able to hide behind
wait, bob is clientside value, it cant affect dimensions of world models in any way
thats like saying that switching your hand in 1.6 would switch shield to the other hand in world model
>used to be 13 r dubs medicore pub pleb on esea

>gun held at eye level
>camera still in the fucking chest
OH MY FUCKING GOD VALVE
How can anyone even be below DMG? How fucking bad are people?
I'm terrible, but I've never had any issues and supreme or global levels.
Is the change really that bad? I haven't played competitive for about 2 months. Currently I'm unranked but my rank used to be LEM. Skillwise I was always good first rank which I got was DMG and never went lower.
Oh well, I guess I'll try it soon
>accuracy isn't that fucking easy
yes it is you dumb fucking shitter, clearly your the one who has never held a gun. See this is how a firearm works,
>pick up weapon
>bullet goes where you aimed
>you have now fired a gun
Real life is not csgo you fucking tool.
A lot of low rank complain about being the rank they deserve.
Want to get good and get better rank? Stop solo queing.
i don't blame people for not being able to reach smfc or ge
valve mm has hackers everywhere and shitty people with funny personalities you end up queueing with but never ranking up with because they're unemployed stoners but they're funny guys so you play with them
>Want to get good and get better rank? Stop solo queing.
Is this some kind of joke? You're telling mg2s and dmgs to STOP solo queuing? To start playing with other mg2s and dmgs? They'll never rank up that way. The ONLY way you get good at this game is solo queue and watching a fuckload of tutorials for shit online and reading forum posts. You practice and educate yourself. Only when you've reached your maximum solo potential and no longer need to pug on client, then you join a team.
but you're probably a smfc/cevo shitter who's never played for real on client
I know brother. I hit supreme after 100 wins, 350h played. It's stupid how people complain in this thread.
tbqh I've queued with global/supreme friends and the only real difference is that top ranks is more about setups and teamwork than skill. You could have shit aim but be good at holding shit and make it there. You just need a consistently good team.
Obviously. I'm not disputing that. I'm saying at MG2, at DMG, at LE, players literally don't even know how to play this game. You don't. It's like starting a basketball team without anyone even playing a position or knowing how to. It's stupid.
And the chances of your MG2 friends making it to double digit RWS on esea are SLIM. You HAVE to get to that skill level, you have to make it to GE and perform well in PUGs on client BEFORE you start looking for a team. I cringe every time I see mg2s looking for a team. You're only going to learn bad habits. You don't know how to play the game at that level. I'm not insulting, I'm stating fact. You need months of training before you can really start to understand the game, you have to understand your role as a single player before you are able to understand the roles of other players and your interactions with each other.
It's also just generally more helpful to team up with people who are at a higher level, who have demonstrated their commitment to the game.
I only play with friends and almost all my friends are around my level.
I do see the issue with hackers (especially on lower levels), but it not so big that people can't rank up.
>this whole fucking post
>this is what go shitters actually believe
jesus christ i want this game to fuck off and die, at least source kiddies were obnoxious fucking faggots about their game.
You're probably right. I hit LE after my first 10 matches in cs go, hit LEM by solo queing but from my experience in MM, no one play as a team (if you don't queue into a premade ofc). People solo queue to play solo unless you're supreme+. Looking up and playing with others at my rank was the best thing I ever did.
>telling people they need to practice and train for months
>in a piss easy fucking game
>needing to know your roll and interacting with each other
This kind of pretentious wannabe mlg shit could only come from the depths of reddit or /vg/, I've watched your literal shit tier mgl teams play, they all play like silver elite scrubs spraying their rifles and throwing smoke when they could be rushing and killing people, that is, if any of them could actually fucking aim their big gay rifles.
>paying people extra money to be in their autism league
>b-but a-a-anon y-your n-not g-good if you play the b-b-b-base game

>inb4 you move the goalpost again you shitter.
You don't get to claim the game is easy and doesn't require time and effort, while never putting in the effort to play in the servers and in the leagues where tier 1-3 pro players compete and play
>you dont get to claim the game is shit tier and easy unless you play it a special way on a special flower server for special flowers that don't play videogames for fun but for money because they are parasites
yeah no, i'm sorry that you never got above gold nova and have to project that everyone, much like yourself, is also shit at the game unless they are EMELGEE
>link some literally who complaining that every gun isn't a lazer
wow you showed me
It did show you indeed. Most lots of rifles just dont hit shit even if you are on their head. Its a RNG fest. You're just salty you got told that you didnt even watch the video.
I got deranked from nova 3 to silver IV now in a few games. Now it's super hard to rank up unless you party up with someone, luckily I found one dude in some random match, we got a 6 win streak, always stayed in top of scoreboard with loads of MVP but still no rank, WTF? I mean we clearly outgrown that rank it's no challenge to play.
>at least 5 of those shots that should have been headshots
>not headshots because lol "minimum range" XDD on all weapons
>mfw people still dont understand that minimum weapon range is fucking retarded.
no fucking face.
I know that you have problems thinking and shit, but like, if you haven't realized it yet, CS is more about setting up scenarios to work in your favor than it is about your ability to left click. Don't buy an inaccurate weapon if you have a problem with it being inaccurate.
>acquire mac 10/ mp9 and never drop them
>never walk never stop

What moving goalpost? There's more to skill than just press lmb.
>theres more skill than pressing lmb
like what faggo? opening your mouth to tell your teammates to not be shit this round? throwing a smoke or a flash ooooo so pro so skillfull.
fuck off you autistic faggot, if you ever played a real shooter you would have had "gaysense"before you even fucking started global duty. From the way you defend this shit i can tell its your first "competitive" game.
>every combat scenario is the size of D2 long
Wew nice rebuttal.
later bro see you next thread
>making right choices when rotating
>making right choices how to proceed when knowing enemy positions
Like shit man, positioning is really fucking important
holy shit i'm dieing here this is too good.
Nah, it's CS. Everyone knows that all that's there to it is saving enough money to buy an AWP, losing it to a Tec-9 rush because the shitty game doesn't allow you to shoot it accurately while moving and then complaining about RNG on /v/.
Suppressors are for gays
Positioning is extremely important in literally every competitive shooter ever.
>stand in shit position
>die because can't aim
>stand in good position
>die because can't aim
i don't give a shit how good your camping spot is, aiming and shooting is literally the only skillful component in a fps.
because your both shit and you play the game using the emelgee meta of rifles, camping, crouchshooting, and walking. pick up an smg some time and play the game as if it werent babys first slow rolling bitch game. 99% of the camping spots become useless and 99% of the people become shit tier because they literally can't track moving targets.
Come on now, I'm shit but I'm not THAT bad! Also I use MP7 pretty often, buy it after a pistol win and hold onto it for a long time. Feel kinda useless when I have to take a long range fight, though.
>literal call of duty guns
>memes against armored enemies
i can get 3 headshots off with a mac or mp9 before you even scope in.
then don't put yourself in that position, pretty much ever map except shit tier dust 2 aka babys first awp map has a close range area you can flank people from, i recommend mac 10/mp9 because the rate of fire is glorious and it suppresses the fuck out of people in high level play, because they play like pussies.
Anybody who isn't shit knows how to hit a moving target. Your ability to shit on kids in casual is less impressive than my webms tbqh
Hey man don't diss crouchshooting
>same cocksucker i was arguing with last night
i'm going to make you my little bitch one day
>then don't put yourself in that position
If you're T, you'll have to run some longs on most maps. If you're CT, Ts can always take another site and then you have to rotate and watch out for people holding long angles.
Use other tools to get up there man. Use smokes and flashes to force CTs to fall back to positions where it's easier for you kill them, or buy weapons that are more accurate at range.
>original post that was being replied to talked about shooting while standing still
>ABLOO ABLOO SHOOTING WHILE MOVING
My favorite gun is
SG, I even sort of "get" its recoil pattern, just pull it down-left and it tears through people with its satanic rate of fire and good armour-ignoring damage. And scope lets me one-hit headshot people at range. If only you could buy it as CT...
SG is the shit really. It has better armor pen than the AK and it's way more accurate.
It's literally better than AA in every way BUT it costs more and people are so used to AK that they perform better with it than SG.
If you know how to use it and are fine economically, it's the go to choice for me.
Also people get triggered when you get kills with it.
also if you want to gitgud easy, go play on a warcraft 3 server not a death match server. Shooting at people who move at 300% speed, fly at like 1000% speed, are completely invisible, amongst doing other nigger shit will get you really good at shooting people moving at base speed.
Ultraviolet looks nice with at least MW and pulse isn't too bad either. Its better skins don't have stattrak though.
It's recoil pattern is a little bit more radical than the AK though, so it's not the best for rushing. Other than that it's pristine.
I actually refuse to believe people can go below Nova 2 unintentionally.
How can you be that shit?
I was nova 4 as soon as I got my rank, lowest I ever got was 2 and that was after a loss streak when playing with shitters going 0/24.
I don't really like UV because it leaves some parts unpainted. I sort of like Pulse, but not enough to buy it... yet. Really like my Radiation Hazard, but it doesn't come with StatTrak.
Love the SG but I personally feel the AUG is better to me at least, I find the first initial burst recoil pattern easier to follow because it is straight up for at least 6-7 rounds before it moves side to side.
It's a stupid shit thing. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nrf-t6tkaA
There were settings so that the view always resets to the topmost position when stops moving. It lets you see over stuff you normally wouldn't see and also makes enemies bounce to higher.
They might not have the right hardware. I had a shitty PC that averaged 20 frames and I bounced around Nova 1 - 3 back then. As soon as I upgraded from a toaster I got to LE in like 5 days.
UV is one of my favorites personally. I like having parts be colored with a clean receiver.
no, 3 days before the change I deranked from LEM, if people were moving 1 to 2 ranks on average then it just proves that if you can't deal with the higher ranks you were and always are the lower rank and should stop mentioning that you "were" X rank.
oh and its actually a moded glicko system
>you can't add positioning if your aim is good enough!
Aiming and positioning are 2 different skills which both help. You think pros only win by having good aim?
Everyone plays better with good positioning.
