>>1036307If it wasn't for EG being a gigantic shitshow for the last 3 years everyone would realize Fnatic is almost as much of a fuckup in CS.

They're completely irrelevant aside from the name by this point.>Fnatic's last roster pic on liquipedia is from 2019.

MY GAME KEEPS FUCKING CRASHING
Why in the fuck do retards (usually on nuke) just run around on the roof and throw the match? It doesn't even seem like they are throwing just to de rank, it's like a certain group of players just go to nuke so they can do weird movement glitches and 360s. Usually they are silver 1 with 100s of commendations. I get smurfing might be fun but is it really fun just to go to silver 1 and keep losing? Don't get me wrong I'm ass at CS but I've lost so many games just because dick heads climb up and down the ladder doing 360s until they are last alive and then lose clutches because they have only a Glock. Why?
the game is too bright now i literally cant see my crosshair without an outline
>>1037521It's unironically franzj's fault
>>1037521FranzJ's Nuke videos bred an entire generation of retards emulating him, don't queue Nuke if you're silver

>>1037548>>1037640I queue competitive games only to try to hit noscopes and jump over people to backstab them. Then when I'm at rock bottom ranking I switch to rifles and start to ace every round

https://www.hltv.org/news/36967/the-logic-behind-valves-move-to-mr12Probably the most crucial thing in this article is the bottom lines of this picture, that the data for csgo is taken from finals of Cologne, Blast Spring, and the Major. >If we compare our game to traditional sports, we can see just how much time fans are expected to give up to watch a full best-of-three. Modern CS:GO has 15-20 minute breaks between maps, two to three-minute half-times, four 30-second timeouts per team, and far more gun rounds that naturally extend play time.This is underselling the amount of timewasting there is in a LAN. I counted some ESL breaks from navi v apeks, and fnatic v faze, and in a 3 map series you'd get:15 minutes breaks between maps is about right>1800 seconds (30 minutes)Four minute half-time breaks>720 seconds (12 minutes)42 minutes of ads/highlights/ex pro on the desk telling us they need to bounce back on their map pick/skits/footage of pros playing table tennisAnd if you include timeouts, which people misleadingly say are 30 seconds when in reality they can go 20s freeze time->30s timeout->20s freeze time, essentially adding 50 seconds to the game. 8x50x3=>1200 seconds (20 min)This is slightly misleading though, as you're probably not calling timeouts perfectly to use up the entire 40 seconds of freezetime, and nor are all timeouts used every map, but they sure have potential to add a huge amount of timeBut remember what I said about where these figures are taken from? LAN Finals. As a somewhat occasional watch of cs, online cs absolutely shits out games. How curious that HLTV decided not to count literally any of them.Now, I've not said all this just to go "hurrr durr, CSGO games aren't long". They can be. And those long games, the 16-14s, the overtimes, at LAN, are fucking amazing. But, they're not all long. What is long?LAN broadcasts are long. And it's mostly their own fault
>>1037788How to fix?I understand, they sell ad space in all those long breaks. So they are somewhat required. But they could probably fuck off with a bunch of analysis if they wanted to keep the ad time, and maybe save on a day rate or two, and maybe lower the between map break to 10 minutes?I'd also like freeze time lowered by 5 seconds. 20 seconds is an awful long time, and even 5 seconds shorter over 3 16-12 games is 7 minutes saved.And for there to be two 45 second timeouts per team.45+15*4*3=12 minutes of timeoutbut again with the caveat that that implies all being used, and used at the very last second of freeze timeall that added up is 30 minutes savedyou may call me reddit now, if anyone bothers to read
ahem FUCK FACEITFUCK HLTVand FUCK BETTING SITES
>>1037793based also fuck streamers that eat scammer gambling/betting sites $$$
>>1037791>they could probably fuck off with a bunch of analysisgod please make this happen
Im actually excited for mr12 pro matches since it makes much more sense to follow every single round, it'll be more intense viewing experience
>>1037810It's a step in the right direction but I still think they need to sort the map pool.
>>1037812What does valve need to do about the map pool
>>1037812>>1037814I think the map pool is fine, I'm glad Dust II is out. The number of maps is good and all of the maps are pretty competitive and nuanced (especially with kind of "dead" maps like Mirage and Overpass getting a lot of new meta changed with the new smokes and skybox changes

>>1037836>losing to the single most common monster flash on overpassprobably dexters fault
>>1037838"mature" sure but it makes it a lot less fun. YouTube might be a soulless corperation but Twitch is actually so much worse, especially in moderation. Cabal of reddit-tier mods and jannies
>>1037846generally twitch comes down hard on streamers if they don't mod the chatyoutube literally doesn't care about it's live streaming part of the site
>>1037846I can't believe Dexter quit out of his EPL match to go coach Mouz.

it's an objective fact that dexter sucks absolute ass
this is a FUCKING elimination game what are you doing mouz
It's all tiresome mens cant hold on
hope in the mr12 era these kinda online bo1s can be bo3s intead
Mouz just got eliminated from the Blast qualifier by fucking twist's mix

>>1039020Dexter fucked over Mouz for over a year and ppl still take chances on this fraud
Any ANYONE give a fuck about this pro league season? I don’t even see post match threads on reddo for it.
>>1039030This group is kind of boring, I expect to see slightly more fucks given for D. But the fatigue from too many games is definitely noticeable.
>>1039030everything pre-CS2 feels low key now and just a formality while everyone waits
>>1039043and this too, plus there is no upcoming major for the 2nd part of the year, so every tournament is basically filler now.
loldexters last name is "nong"
I don't understand how Dexter can be so fucking bad after so long in better teams
>>1039043Reddit certainly seems to be all about cs2 instead of the gamesMaybe its because the games matter so little, losing means you go last chance qualifiers with shit teams no one cares about. You get to playoffs after 2 wins and the "final" win merely puts you a bit ahead so it doesnt rly matter.The tournament itself goes on for way too long and unless you care about like 4 teams you can have weeks of literally nothing going on in the scene. This goes back to that cs2 mr12 discussion, the bo3s are too long and theres too few games each day to give a shit.
What does vac being unable to authenticate game session even mean.What exactly does the game want from me at this point?

you guys liedpeople didn't get better over my 7year hiatusdmg/doublepigeon people are still just as shit as they were then and don't know any smokes
>>1040270going to harvard does not make one "infinitely smarter" than regular people, that's the kind of glorifying one might do if you've never met people who attended ivy league schoolsalso they're hired for their expertise in software development, not for their deep understanding of counter strike the game
>>1040273That has nothing to do with people getting better. The people who GOT better aren't in those ranks you fuckin nimrod. But guess what also has been happening? Player count has been going up, so you have MORE noobs in those lower ranks. You're not playing the people who have gotten better because you yourself aren't fuckin good
>>1040228his whole schtick is bad takes for clout wouldn't be surprised he tried to shill himself here, he's that desperate for attention
>>1040244>now that Thorin has made himself completely irrelevant, yes.What did that autistic ginger do this time, being retarded on twitter again?
is BOROS waster on falcons?
>>1040312Oh so calling shit for what it is is now "bad takes for clout"?Most other analysts say the same old shit, rinse and rehashed with the same excuses for every fucking match. Then you have like 2 people, Maui being one of them, saying what everyone is actually thinking. Faggots like you who just want the blandest and most bullshit analysis are exactly who we don't need
>>1040309I'm gonna be fine. I'll grind my way to the top like usual. I just find it funny people have been hyping trash like gold nova has having the same skill as globals from back then.
>>1040322Yeah that's definitely not the case. The trash stay trash and never get any better, even after thousands of hours. I've been playing fairly consistently and while the skill ceiling has been getting higher, the floor hasn't moved much at all in the lower ranks
>>1040320most analyst say stupid shit this cretin yells it thinking he's the smartest guy on the bloke, while he's a clown desperate to build his own brand

>>1041467The problem for pros will continuously be that they're used to 128 tick and wish it was constant.Given the billions of profit csgo makes why cant valve just implement 128 tick for everyone. The answer is the employee that implemented that would cost valve money and lose his bonuses.

Hiring Eastern Euros as an American org is actually retarded. They're instantly making 10x what they were making before regardless of results - what's keeping them motivated?
>>1044864>inb4 Liquid isn't AmericanMight as well be
These fucking commentators aren't even watching the game. I was sympathetic about the whole "stop whining about commentators doing colour segments in dead time" but the second pistol in a game that's 7:8 is not dead time. I am firmly on the side of the whiners now.

He's still got great aim and is playing decent.>Jeorge doesn't do anything to live up to his hypeUnironically adjusting period.

>>1045098based. talking shit online is literally beta behaviour>>1045102I can 1000% say this is because of their new Assistant Coach. JamezIRL is actually doing a good job. CoL is playing the meta with the fast flanks and good lurks. Good to see NA play well

>>1045127yeah that's good and all but im kinda pissed they reduced ECL
>>1045128Not only did Liquid give up a spot in an easy region, they got worse after the shuffle. At least they were consistent playoffs makers with nitr0 and EliGE and made two finals. Now they can barely qualify for big tournaments.
>>1045131>>1045128ehh i'd give Liquid time. The patsi and NAF pieces are definitely going to work out and Rainwaker is actually a great anchor player. They'll bounce back. The reason they're playing shit right now is because Patsi literally arrived minutes before their first match

do you think the current echelon of best players / GOATs (s1mple, device, ZywOo, Niko) will ever fall off as hard as coldzera? dude is 1.05 vs tier 2/3 teams, and it's been like this for years. he got carried by Nekiz yesterday. if someone told you that in 2016...system player
>>1045811Fallen was the actual carry all along
>>1045811You know remember Coldzera on Complexity.
>>1045811All these players have been consistently putting up high ratings for at least 5 years and showing no signs of decline so even if they fall off right now they'd never be as bad as Coldzera.

C9 look so rudderless. All firepower, no brain.
>>1045067As a neutral, I think both coL and Liquid are better off with the changes than before. Maybe it doesn't look like that with Liquid yet, but it will be. Their changes make plenty of sense, nitr0 couldn't cut it in tier 1 CS anymore and Elige really looked rough this year, a change and a new challenge did good for him.

lol Patsi owns these frauds
It's funny we have this idea that Russians and by extension CIS have the strongest pro scene in this game but their best performance so far in 2023 was a single finals appearance in ESL. m0nesy is the only Russian who won something this year.
>super teamhavent seen them run through a top team once

hot take: https://clips.twitch.tv/ShortGracefulToothPeoplesChamp-tSbGYeS1_zAXnFp6 this was a bigger throw than hades whiff. hades was funny as fuck but at least he made the right play in a 1v2 and correctly read the defuser wasn't faking. mynio is just holding the angle like a bot waiting to be killed, unbelievable this guy. bomb half gone, if he just moves back to tunnel he wins the round.
>>1046826when your teammate repeeks like a retard it's easy to fall for the trap of feeling the obligation to trade him, it's a natural instinct for these guys.
can someone clip the daps bowling attempt from yesterday
Really fucking hppy to see oSee gain confidence and do his plays. He was really passive with elige and nitro but I'm glad he's stepping up nicely
SOMEBODY SAVEEEEEEEE MEEEEEEEE
>>1046841i don't understand NAfags who hate Liquid now because they have 2/5 NA players and a EU flag, fucking childish. oSee is playing better now and NAF is more motivated and less lethargic.
Holy shit NAF
Losing to an eco LOL>>1046841It was unfair to shit on oSee when Liquid forced him to be a support bitch when he's more of a combat AWPer.
classic Jame "teammate ATM" move
chadb3r7 cant win with these cats
>>1046859yep, everyone who has seen oSee since early days knows that on the NA Liquid core he was put on flash and smoke duty. Now that Liquid have Rainwaker as an anchor oSee has been able to take a lot of risk that he's known for
I’d rather tune in to a foreign language stream than listen to Machine fellate himself every fucking match. Can’t wait til this fucker is in the past.
>1 nade and I eco classic jame
Liquid warmed up and Yeki knows Jame too well
>>1046889opening game of the group between them was very close, and Liquid only got Patsi in the last second. i expected them to comfortably win this time.

>>1046850>fucking childishwhy don't I back faze, which is nearly as much of an NA teamI hope osee and naf do well, but I'm not going to root for an org that would've left the region with 0 NA teams (if col didn't git gud) just to get cutrate shitters and perform worse when their remaining NA players don't hard carry. not going to root for an org who put out PR videos about how they had no choice and did everything they could to help NA when that amounted to asking ESL and valve for money, getting more international players than domestic even before the change (last NA team liquid paid a buyout to was osee when extra salt sold all their players off and closed, before that was twistzz in 2017), never running an academy team or local tournaments, or anything that would have any effect. not gonna root for a team run by an egotistical latvian who'd rather kill his career than give up controlI root for a naf/osee topfrag in a loss, which seems to be a common occurrence these days
>against mareks it's always important match for us>nice rich american organization, very important game for uskek
Where does Jame stand in the GOAT debate? Can he make it in your top 10?
>>1046956idc bout no tops, i only watch sports and esports where teams from my region are represented (Russia)
Liquid were 14-11 (or 10) on ancient and then fell apart completely, what in the fuck
>>1046965Jame planted strats inside Yekindars head to later abuse it against him. Most advancedest strat esports has ever seen
>>1046952I totally agree. It has nothing to do with turning my back on Osee/NAF, but on Liquid as an org in CS. Even EG, for all we make fun of them, has been doing more than Liquid for NA.

NiKo IGL or electronic IGL?
>>1047208niko 100%in retrospect niko was remarkably good individually, elec fell off a cliff but also isn't a good igl
at least russians still have navi to follow in the playoffs
chocolate rain man is a cs boomer
FANS NEED TO PAY FOR ESPORTS
>>1047205Electronic being mediocre IGL is just one of the issue. The team just have poor chemistry and he has to listen to sh1ro and hobbit, who sounds like the CIS version of allu.>>1047208I don't know about IGLing, bu Niko is smarter because he quickly realized he was shit at IGLing and immediately repent, while elec is one step away from the point of no return just like seized, nexa, and hampus.
>>1047388Chopper or Jerry (they're both IGLs, right? at least one is) should've gotten a shot at Navi back then IMO. Then the core might've never broken up in the first place and electronic would still be a top top rifler. It could still work on C9 now though with -hobbit.
>>1047392Pretty sure the only reason this didn't happen is the war
>>1047392https://bo3.gg/news/w0nderful-and-zont1x-banned-by-ukrainian-esports-federation-navi-nextUkraine federation banned some player who simply played with another Russian.People cried about Navi kicking electronic and perfecto, but the reality was they need to do that so they could negotiate with their federation to save b1t and s1mple's ass.
>>1047413ukraine's corrupt as fuck and navi's clearly better connected, which you can see by their players not getting caught in that first waveprobably could've bribed their way out of it
csgo 2 is so bad that it made me question do I like videogames at allThink I'll just uninstall the game
>>1047346esports need to not pay ridiculous salaries for players who don't create that much value unless the game does esports skins, in which case they generally earn a fuckton and thus you still don't need to pay them a ridiculous salary
>>1047434Tbqh I'm completely ok with embracing gambling, as it seems to be the only way to ensure CS's continued monetary support. Valve just needs to cut out the crypto/skins betting sites and cooperate with mainstream betting sites. The only reason we have what we currently have is betting.
Lets go Lynn Vision!! beat this soulless Liquid team
>>1047500Not fan of race mixing huh
Ynk is so fucking boring, god

>>1047556Wondered where you were Chang.
>>1047552Sounds like Navi during their peak.
this is so fucking scrappy
It's impressive how rainmaker is able to lose every trade.
Hope coL can take at least one map off G2 here.
>niko farming eco name a more iconic duo
>>1047526These guys are hilarious at times, people who whine about their "tone" and not taking the game seriously can go fuck off
coL looking solid here.
coL are actually putting up a fight
Fucking hell these casters are gold
LOL all that effort to lose because of bad comms around kit
>>1047657>bad comms around kitNo way for jks or anyone else to know that the kit fell down though, he died heaven but the kit ended up under a t body near fountain.
Business idea: fluorescent orange defuse kits that glow in the dark.
G2 is getting bullied, and body language says it all.
will jitu really get 2-0'd by coLfucking cocky cunts relax after 2 easy group wins, they will never be an era team or even win a major.that said coL is playing very well, but it feels jitu underestimated them. hunter is afk the whole game.
Still don't know how good COL actually are, considering Cloud9 just got beaten by Eternal Fire too and G2 may just not care about getting top seed.
>>1047413What's even dumber is that the team they played for moved to Serbia and posted this when the war started.
>>1046999I remember from the 18th century to World War I that Ottomans and Russia fought at least 6 different wars and the Ottomans got stomped each time.
>>1046996Electronic wanted to IGL and has insisted on IGLing for a year now.At this point it's not really Blade's fault anymore.
>>1046787Have you forgotten Sumail from dota?
>Grim getting the AUG????
>>1047688b1ad3's biggest fault was underestimating sdy and not being able to integrate him or even use him as an IGL. probably an ego thing of other players played a part here too ("i won't bend over to some tier 2 player"), but that's what a good coach is for. on paper that team should have offered us way way more, 5 great players in their own right.
>>1047679Why the fuck wouldn't a team care about getting a higher seed?
>>1047694it's not even just seeding, loser goes to playoff round 2, winner goes straight to quarterfinals and gets an extra day off, in this case there's plently to gain from winning here
NiKo's deagling skills all went to coL this series
>View to crowd>Literally 2 people in the front rowLmao no wonder BIG is doing well this is an online tournament where the teams play in the same room.

Grim costing coL here
LE HOOXI GIGACHAD XDDDDD!!!!
coL collapse. Grim just kept dying first for nothing in OT.
you can take the org out of nabut you can't take the na out of the org
We're back G2bros
I was watching, Hallzerk .I was watching you ruin Floppy chances to win the major.Now take responsibility and leave.
>>1047728never trust players who steal nicknames from others
coL too mentally rattled after that choke on Inferno.
>>1047728hallzerk is so shit mancoL should get degster or some other high-floor AWPer
Should've won, but 1-2 against G2 isn't terrible>t. coping
>>1047773you're right. as a neutral, coL didn't choke as much as G2 raised their level after matchpoint, not much they could have done. even that floppy 1v3 was kind of a miracle play, nothing to be ashamed of.
>Elige is b-ACK
>>1047786They unironically need Jason Lake behind them at all times to make sure Elige doesn't collapse and go emo modeJust have him there screaming about juggernauts and slapping them on the back
>>1047786classic Elige in a big game i just remembered that EPL final when ZywOo dropped 143 kills on them, don't look up his stats there...
>>1047792I'll never forget that nu-liquid could've won a T1 tourney if elige just played DECENTLY, not even well
I'm going to pretend I'm turkish with the boys in twitch chat and cheer for EF. Should be fun
Holy fuck osee
damn wicadia is goodgood mechanics great aim and composed which is rare for a 18 y.o
Wicadia destroying Liquid holy shit
>>1047786if CoL doesn't end up making it, I'm giving up on NA cs forever. Can only be let down so many times
one day wicadia, yekindar and oSee went to sea. yekindar dipped his hand in the water said the coldness was 15 degrees, oSee put both hands in the water and said the pressure is low, wicadia put his dick in the water and said the depth is 50 meters.
>>1047863Posting this in Twitch chat
>>1047844they already made the playoffs, win or lose. retard
thank god liquid sought out this european talentcan only imagine where they'd be without patsi and rainwalkermaybe the playoffs
>tier 1 team
>>1047874Rainwaker despite playing anchor on every map and being utility bitch on T side has a better rating in this tournament than both oSee and NAF at the momentyou NAfags are really something else, barely got 1 team in playoffs in months and already talk shit
Someone help NAF he's hurting
>>1047885TURKEY NUMBER 1
TL is broken...
anyone know will they do the playoffs draw immediately today or? would make sense to do it asap
>n0rb3r7: CS2 "isn't ready for competitive"GOAT has spoken, gaben in the mud
>>1047895they just finished the draw
>>1047885great analysis, lasted all of 10 minutes. doesn't really hold up when you look at the games liquid plays against real opponents, instead of farming lynn vision>playing anchorwhat are you under the impression that naf does?I forget, who has the really good roles on this team? they must have incredible stats, but I can't figure out who's who from the stat sheetI'm just saying, maybe they should've picked up some turks or something, because the last EPL that NA liquid failed to make playoffs at was EPL 6 in 2017, SK won it, coldzera mvp, magisk hadn't joined astralis yet
This Liquid will never amount to anything. This team was unironically doomed from the start.You have two wildly aggressive and inconsistent all-or-nothing riflers in Yekindar and Patsi who originally played the same roles, as well as Rainwaker and NAF who are notoriously passive and also play similar roles. Combine that with the fact that Yekindar is mediocre at best at IGLing - and in this day and age you NEED a decent caller - and you have a team with no (figurative) aim, barely better than your average FPL stack.

>Sep 24th>EF beat liquid 2-0https://www.hltv.org/matches/2357748/liquid-vs-eternal-fire-esl-pro-league-season-16a new tradition
EF are a great awper away from becoming a stable tier 1 team, w0xic isn't that good. but at least the current roster is finally the best one Turkey can come up with after all those shuffles.
I defend Osee a lot but this time it's all on him, got farmed hard by the Turk AWPer.

>>1047919Is this AGDQ?
>>1047943unfortunately no, w0xic is by far the best choice, 2nd best is probably im0rr who isn't even a real awper.but even so compared to real tier 1 awpers he's mid, misses a fucking lot. he used to be much better back in the day.

fnatic-Monte is an interesting matchup, very even and the teams played each other only once. others should be clear, mouz, VP, Astralis.
>>1047973p based if you ask me
>>1047973desu I'd rather have the balding frog over whatever these are
this tournament would be completely salvaged by a simple fix - just remove the last chance bracket and have 3 teams from the group go to playoffs (UB finalists and LB winner). UB winners go to qfs just like they do now, and UB losers play LB winners for the remaining 4 qf spots. i highly doubt anyone would complain about this reformatting.
>>1047973what did he mean by creditors
free for Vitality
what happens if they release cs2 during the tournament and csgo is gone
>>1048000no, pro league is saved by going back online and having some NA+SA, EU (maybe EUa&EUb), OCE, CN+miscellaneous seasons with a finals

>>1048981couldn't you just make the opposite argmuent? that hltv don't rate spaceholders/anchors?i see jks and twist on the leetify side, and they're full anchors and lurkers on like inferno, no? ropz is on the leetify side too
>>1049033it really is more about leetify penalizing behavior than hltvhe basically argues it's a function of hltv rating naively rewarding "opening kills" even if that kill is immediately traded back by the enemy team and you're left in a 4v4, while leetify rating penalizes you for dying after and thus lowering your team's chances of winning the round from the highs of an advantageous 5v4. also aggro riflers farm stats on anti-ecos because they win opening duels and get multikills against pistols, but leetify weights these lower than success against gunsit's also a sort of "how much can you really quantify" meme, because it's impossible to put a number on information gained by an individual in a round
call your winnervitality's bracket looks stupidly free, but I'll go with g2
I can't wait for that fucking fraud Dexter to get eliminated, Fnatic will stay a tier 3 team with that fake-chinese retard's outdated strategies
