Always inspect in game, always assume the worst. Bet what you can afford to lose and most importantly always do the opposite of what /csgog/ says.

It's not uncommon to hear bits of other players' housemates' conversations when you're in Teamspeak, but none of us were prepared for this one.
The game was going normally, we had a nice lead, and we heard one of our friends talking to his girlfriend.
We overheard her ask, "How come you can see the other guys through the wall?"
He abandoned the game and went offline.
jesus fuck well done valve, literally made a game worse than Source
derank from gn2 to gn1 despite doing this fucking good in a literal 1v5 game that i had to waste 20 mins of my life on with no opportunity to literally stop playing the game
why the fuck does anyone still play MM anymore? it's a shit version of a community comp.
Get yourself a nice tall glass with a lid on it and fill it with iced water
drink it through games and refill it between matches
get your sugar/caffeine through other sources that won't give you diabetes within a few months, like a small chunk of dark chocolate
I know the feel man, trust me I do.
It's so fucking hard to get off them.
you literally just have to stop drinking them. I know that's retarded advice, since I had one today.
But we just need to stop drinking them anon.
if i got this team in community comp there would literally be no issue:
>would have fun because no german squeakers screaming down my ear
>would kick teammates and it would actually go through
>when 2 teammates left, one of the enemies would join my team and make it 4v4, and actually make the teams and game fair and balanced
>could banter in the chat with the other team
>not care about dying/losing since i wouldn't lose some stupid badge
>literally would have the ability to leave the server, and not worry about being banned from playing for 30 mins, or still having my badge lost
just fuck MM honestly
I've drank around 5 cups of coffee today, (with 2 really full spoons of instant coffee powder). I feel like shit. My head hurts. I'm slow as fuck. I can't think straight.
Literally suicidal. Tomorrow will be even worse I bet. Fuck this is hard.
why not? i've been using the term badge shitter since 2014 and that refers to DMG because all of those obnoxious redditors that think they know more about the game than they do used to be DMG back then
>lose first game
>instant derank even though i was winning a lot recently and closer to an uprank prior to update
>whatever valves new ranking shit
>win next game, followed by a loss
>as 2nd in team, with decent stats and against similarly ranked opponents
>get deranked again during next few days despite winning more than losing
fucking volvo just take 2 ranks off of everybody instead of shitting up the experience for 2 weeks
i didn't say more well known by
but he has already nicked in pro games as devve for quite a long time before this "official announcement"
i can understand that he might've felt like he doesn't like his old nickname that he has probably come up with when he was like 14
i'm surprised there are not more seasoned pro players changing their nickname, although in csgo there aren't really many pro players who have such a dumb alias that i'd expect them to eventually get tired of it
>bought this shit randomly on the 24th
>already 65-ish hours played
I'm improving a lot but I'm way too scared to queue for comp. Should I wait? If so, how long? I only somewhat know the maps themselves and the angles on Dust2 and Inferno. And Office (it's my fav map) but Office isn't very relevant I think
i think names that don't mean anything are better than words that mean completely boring everyday things
the words "device" just makes me think of that "your device is safe to remove" pop up in windows
i wasn't boosted and played good on my rank, was LE for a few matches but got deranked because i was to bad.
I am not saying deflating the ranks is bad, it was very much needed. But they should have just taken 2 ranks from everybody and then implemented their new ranking system.
If i get constantly deranked from winning over 66% of my matches it's fucking annoying. Also when i get deranked after winning a match vs the same ranks with good stats there is something very wrong with their shit
>But they should have just taken 2 ranks from everybody
Why should high Elo GE's like me who had already been stable GE's for months before the welfare ranks happened be punished along with you welfare kids?
Are people in ESL better? I'm sick and tired of getting MM with shitters, flamers, idiots, trolls, cheaters. It's way too rare to get into a team that communicates and knows what they are doing.
If you deserve to be GE you'll be back there in no time.
I fucking shit on everybody in my rank and can't uprank for the love of god. It's so frustrating. Almost every game i lose it's because i either have a leaver or some 20 hours smurfer in the enemy team. But since valve decided to go full retardmode on this i am getting more bored with every unchallenging game i play
I did that for many years in source. I got CSGO specifically because I like the competitive aspect that MM brings. A 5v5 match, I find, is much more fun that just running around randomly on a map with 20 other people. It's just so full of shitters, though.
lurpiss beefing with our boy nicolai "devve" "device" redditz
im fucking ready for the NA FPL boys
spend some time in another esports scene (that isn't starcraft). thorin and rlewis are miles better than 90% of league or dota writers/casters. shit, i tried to listen to an esports podcast a week or so ago and got to listen to the csgo guy for TL and he didn't even know who moe was
why the fuck are there retards on this general that don't play with positively-wrapped screen setting
>produces a fisheye effect to enlarge enemies near you
>curves screen with the curve of your eyes, creating a natural feel
>twists corners of screen to make them more circular and closer to center
>looks like a smile, which subconsciously makes you feel better and rage less
why the fuck do you losers just play on 4:3 instead
>stopped playing csgo
>remember i still had like 100 of those esl capsules from 2014
thoring said the same, but as of lately, he actually gives a fuck and tries to be not so "toxic".
And I fear that could have a negative impact on his gameplay
fuckboy adren can suck his dick while he carries the game with hiko
>adren will never transition to a qt girl
>you'll never massage trans adren's prostate
There is a hidden rating number behind your account.
Let's say 1000
Before the change having a 1000 rating meant you were GN4, after the change it means you are GN1.
You are not deranking based on your performance, but based in the rating that determines your rank.
Not playing and letting your rank decay actually lowers that rating over time which means you'll derank even more once you play again.
deep strike pods and assault marine jump packs when
>quick deep strike on site b we need backup
I'm not saying that it will be buffed to the insanely OP version we had when it was released but the R8 is gonna get buffed in the future. Nearly nobody uses it now.
I really wish you'd realize how retarded you are
that's because his cheating only got caught by ESL Wire which is not that reliable anticheat and has been known to cause false positives
not saying s1mple didn't cheat, just explaining why his ESL ban isn't a bigger deal
it's like how m0e got caught for cheating by ESEA's AC so they slapped him a 2 year ban and he waited it out and now he is free to play
Does this game support gamepads? It's on sale for 50% off.
'Yes' or 'No', that's the only answer I need. I don't need any other types of feedback. Keep the patronizing stuff to yourself please.
a party of 4 is in my game and none of them are trying
can someone explain to me the way this new ranking system works?
i lost a game, and got instant deranked. wtf? i won two in a row then lost another and got deranked...
really though, wtf? is this how it works now? you cant lose games anymore ?wtf
some tranny who is a friend of his slept with the guy from destructoid and had an imgur album of him. they showed the tamest pic on stream for a second.
>its not okay to leave games and you deserve it if you leave
>its okay to flame your teammates because there is a mute button and you don't deserve it if you get punishment for being a giant asshole over and over again
Jesus christ Richard Lewis
this guy explained it
its going back to the way things were before, the normal ranks
may 2015 until now was welfare ranks when everybody was too highly ranked and silver was deleted
I just think its funny that he can recognize why using the word rape as a descriptor might be a little fucked up but can't recognize whats wrong with using the word pussy as a descriptor.
Anyone know a good way to find a team?
I've achieved global in matchmaking and i'm pretty tired of MM. I've tried some Faceit but solo queuing there is really boring.
Recently started playing comp -- just finished my placement matches. What the fuck is up with people just casually voice chatting?
It's super annoying when you are trying to listen to footsteps and people are talking about skins or how they almost got the dude that killed them. I ask people to stfu and they get upset with me
I got placed in gold nova 1. Is this common in higher leagues?
ironically, i dont think that'll be what tilts him. in eu fpl he gets mad when people aren't trying. in na fpl half the players dont give a shit and say so openly. moe steel and dazed all want to win, a2z or ocean just want to meme around
simple is going to be fully heffed
mixcat i fucking beg
i would have won like 4 bets by now if csgl/valve didn't fuck up
let me hab these 4 cents pls
>mfw S1mple's first FPL game is with Ocean, Warden, Moses and a2z
can som1 pls explain why even 4 cent guns have some people selling them for hundreds of $
literally what is the point
Some of you I bet yeah, but there is no team play here. Some people seem to buy every round, while others eco in bizare ways.
I'm trying to throw, and I'm buying AK without armor every round. My team isn't saying a thing about this. They're ok with me running in and getting killed every singe round.
i really can't be too scared of that tbqh
ESEA's service is so much better than faceit's but faceit has the better playerbase by far
ESEA is so full of these probably ak rank shitters who most likely decided to start playing there because they thought there are too many cheaters in MM for them to improve past that
Because if you buy right away every round what am I supposed to do.
Asusming you aren't trying to derank and don't understand ecoing you probably won't figure it out in the middle of a match anyway
I don't fucking get it. The CT's have won 7 rounds in a row. They literally all have SMG's. There's a guy using an MP7 ever round.
Please tell me this isn't how low ranks play CS.
I was smfc/low-global before update and then went down to LEM after update, been stuck there since.
LEM is now is pretty much what SMFC was. Before the update LEM was ridiculously bad compared to SMFC, I could tell if I was in a match with all LEMs because things would get really stupid.
>Haven't played against a single cheater at global for years now.
Yes you have.
I haven't deranked to LE so I guess that means I'm holding my weight, but I just assume it's currently impossible to rank up right now.
If you're not solo-que'ing that might be a different story.
guys is there any way for someone to see your rank outside of game lobbies or ends of matches?
want to get gud at MM but dont want friends to laugh at me when i tell them i deranked to silver 3-4
>Are you playing only dust 2 or something stupid like that?
I play about 50% Cache and 50% Dust2. There's nothing wrong dust2. I notice no difference in people I get with the dust2 matches compared to other maps, people still seem to generally be the same regardless of map.
team did awful first half, second half we destroyed.
I queued with two "supreme smurfs", and they bottomfragged the whole game, I 2nd topfragged, and a 12 year old topfragged. They thought we were all smurfs/cheaters. One of my teammates was spamming justin bieber.
We won the game, 16/10, but I feel like we should've lost.
In fact, I feel worse winning than I do if we had lost.
How do I not feel shit about winning a game I don't at all deserve? I'm MG2 right now.
how do you know they were better?
And lets say you don't deserve that win, the amount of games that you deserve to win yet lose will balance those out if you play enough games.
In the short term you might be more lucky or less lucky, but given enough time you will still be better than yo uwere befor
Just don't worry about it so much and go queue for another
>how do you know they were better?
They beat me literally every single spray battle in the first half, they had better strats, were more coordinated.. More than that but you get the gist. Just better players.
>Just don't worry about it so much and go queue for another
Yeah, no. I'm playing awful today, like, seriously the worst I've done in a long time, but I still wrecked those guys.

i want out of this hell
Do competitive matches really last 90 minutes? Because I got the game a week ago and the fact that the game says competitive matches may last 90 minutes is what's turning me off from trying competitive.
hi guys do i need to be le 360 quickscope god to be good at the game
also any videos on how to effectively use recoil? i understand it is there and that i need to pull my gun, but do i need to always do this? do i always crouch before shooting or is holding walk enough? do i strafe while shooting with an AK47 or is this only doable with submachineguns? also how do pistols work? do i need to wait on my crosshairs to come back together? and should i play deathmatches until i can win before playing domination?
Why don't you have a butterfly knife yet, /csgog/?
nice meme but you can do better. Try using f a m a lot, you can post f a m (space) which is 4 digits 500 times, and it gets replaced with senpai which is 7 digits. Hence 7 times 500 is 3500 char in one post, that's a long post. Put each one on a different line... you see where im going.
Now get out there and meme harder, anon!
Don't watch shitty videos. Learn from players who are better in game when you meet them.
Play DM 4 hours a day. Play a ton of DM before and after every match. Watch your demons back when you lose and look at what you did wrong/what enemy did right.
people still run and gun with p90s across the map and half the time no one responds to mic
>was an MG1 before derank
>only GN4 after the derank
Which is weird because I've been practicing and getting better but never felt like I could hang with old-rank DMG'. I'm the only person I know who actually had a promotion during the deranking :^)
The new in this one hurts but i'll try.
Yes, you will always need to pull down when you shoot a long string of rounds. This map shows you exactly where you will need to aim for a bullet to hit the target, it's all about timing and learning the pattern. At first just practice the first 10 rounds then hit E to reset your ammo and the dot, then try again. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=419404847
I don't know what crosshair you're using but the default one is shit. This map has an easy retard-proof gui for changing your crosshair. Go into the back room and pick one you like then move from there. Try shooting and moving and shit with each one because some are reactive and others aren't. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=308490450
This is how you will actually get better. This lets you practice shooting dots on the wall until you get used to your sens, you should play it every day before you play a match. You can just hit start and it will run, but if you use the last option on the left side of the board it will run forever and you can zone out and click dots forever. Once you think you're good, try lowering the timing, no one expects you to do .25 as not many people can even react that fast, let alone aim at a specific dot and kill it. .5 is pretty fast too. I'm LEM and run 95% of the dots on default mode at .75 seconds, and 75-80% of the dots on .5 timing. Use an AK and don't be afraid to burst at the dots on default mode, you don't have to tapfire. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=241148414
not really. 90 min is literally planting the last second and letting the bomb go off every round, that never happens. 30-60 min is normal, hour matches being the 16-14 or 15-15 ones normally. Of all my downloaded matches 25 min was the shortest and 58 min is the longest.
here's an idea
play a game with devs that arent scared of 90+ fov
the system was always fucked up, i had games like win 3 lose 1 and then win 1 lose 5 and after i went in streak with 8 wins and no rank up, next match i went 15 15 and i ranked up, right after that tie match i lost and deranked. Legit as always
>NA "pros" literally playing on default settings
>two guys on team are fucking around
>manage to get 14-16, be top frag
>still drop, for the fifth time after welfare
Fucking selling my skins now, I thought "true elo" was actually true, but seems it isn't and the system is just dropping you despite your performance.
Serves me right for playing reserves.
If future president of the United States Donald J. Trump were a CS:GO map, he'd be de_port
but I have one
This is my first CS, I have 600 hours played and got downgraded to DMG.
My aiming is horrendous. When I watch pro stream I realize I am so so so so bad (I like S1mple and Kioshima's stream)
I have g400s 800dpi 1sens. How do get better. I already do 1 hour of deathmatch a day for the last 6 months but feel like I improve so slowly if at all. Do I just have no talent for this?
600 hours is not much
your settings sound reasonable
i recommend you not to overdo grinding dm
for me dm is something that i play for maybe 5 minutes to get warmed up, it's not where i actually improve my aim
well mate with the command the grenade gets in your hand faster, and you can throw it faster
check it out
thanks btw, this should works
bind "5" "use weapon_knife;use weapon_incgrenade;use weapon_molotov"
Im so fucking sick of trying to git gud /vg/ I really am.
I play on my own and rank is constantly me vs premades, smurfs, or i have trolls and derankers on my team.
Leagues community isnt this shit and theyre cancer.
he's playing fpl atm and literally called some guy in his team "fucking retard". his reason was kinda justified, and it's always funny how they try to comeback "b-but u have to play for NA now".
>s1mple: shad de fuck up idiot kid
Can't wait til he meets steel and dazed
correction, this only works when launching 2 grenades one after another. Switching to knife cancels the grenade throwing animation and allows to throw the second grenade faster
or something like that I think
was MG deranked twice because i lost twice in a row due to trolls/smurfs.
Silver is too shitty and being an average player leaves no room to improve because theres only pubs or ranked where ill just get fucked over
:( dont worry bud, when this derank spree finally settles csgo will be fun again.
i agree senpai. honestly i prefer games where my t side is good and we have time to set up with smokes and flashes and can execute well.
playing on mirage or train with a team that actually knows smokes and can listen, regardless of mics, is one of the best feelings in cs
i cant believe i didnt know this. i usually just quick switched before but this is much more handy, especially double flashing into sites.
i used to use these binds but it sometimes fucks up and when you press your grenade button instead you will take your knife in hand
it never happens if you make an own listen server with 0 ping
the higher your ping is the more likely it is to happen
cobble is a comfy map for a late night game where you dont want to put in too much effort
>solo hold a
>awp or rifle b long
>rush b with team
>b split and go drop with some flashes
>lurk at a and catch the connector hold offguard
dont know if i like this game
i just hate this uncertainty because i have no idea where my team mates are, what angle theyre holding, when theyre gonna retard push, when 2 people are gonna force and 3 are gonna save
and then all these russians
>MGE before all of this
>dropped to silver after a really close game
>there are peeople who dropped to silver after the rank change
i was le haven't played in 2 months. am i going to nova guys really
how nice of you to give me 2 differen't (You)'s in 1 post
anyway i feel like aim is best improved by simply playing the game in these competitive 5v5 games be it MM or some 3rd party service
it's about developing that muscle memory along with the experience of battling out that same engagement over and over again
some sort of "raw aim" that is simply about a person's ability to click on a certain area of the screen as quickly as possible really isn't what makes people who are regarded as having good aim aim well
your aim is very much tied to the context of the engagement where you have to use it. many pros have certain favorite engagements where they feel particularly comfortable in and they purposefully try to challenge their opponents in those engagements because they feel confident about winning them
>tfw still global
suddenly, out of 5 global friends, im the only still global
feels alright man
GIve me the link to a sick pro match that I should watch next.
Nah man, when you hear him talk on the issue you get the feeling that he's sorry for what he did because he's banned, not because he's seen the error in his ways. I don't think iBP should be banned forever but that guy hasn't learned his lesson. Just my impression.
>on T side no one wants to go first in so we lose
>on CT side they keep pushing so we lose
it's obvious steel doesn't feel bad at all about it
he's just desperately trying all the measures he has to get unbanned
all this charity shit
talking about his depression and other personal problems in hopes of gaining sympathy
he's a scheming jew that's what he is
that G2 vs mouz game from Cluj
I loved nearly everything about this match. It makes me sad they cut Gob since you can see how their strats adapt and change consistently getting mouz into near win situations. You can even tell Gob is putting himself in positions where he shouldn't have to have aim battles since he knows he's less skilled than everyone else. It was a really good game from both sides.
The only people who support dazed are fucking redditors.
He's literally an e-celeb. He isn't a pro player. He is completely irrelevant to the scene. Watching dazed is watching an e-celeb. Hes on the same level as LIRIK or JonTron you fucking redditor faggot.
