>>1080878very g good
>>1080878i win i win!
>>1080878Dabbing on csgo babbies
It is but for some reason after grinding out like 80 hours in a month I no longer feel like playing.
>>1080878If it's good then why am i playing Ranbow 6 Siege instead?
I wasted all my time grinding the open betaI have no desire to play the actual release right now at least not until new operation
>>1080878Im getting filtered...How the F*CK do I gitgud?
>>1080878It’s not that good now, but it’s getting better
been playing this fucking game since 1999. i HATE csgo so much it's unreal. cs2 is infinitely more fun to play. if you disagree you are a ZOOMER FAGGOT or a SOURCE RETARD.
>>1085916Stand still when you shootLower your sensitivityPay attention to what your teammates are doing
>>1085916play t side
>>1088670>Lower your sensitivityReally? I thougjt you needed le insane fast twitch moves and huge dpi?
>>1088988As long as you can still do a 180 flick without running out of space on your desk/mousepad, lower sensitivity = better
>>1080878Why does CS filter /v/ so fucking much?
>>1085916Hold shift while shooting, you will become pro with this one weird trick.
Do workshop maps not work for anyone else? It just tells me the map isn't installed when I try to start a game on one even though I did install them.
>>1092682Might as well just crouch then. Better aim, smaller target.
>>1092878>>1092682Dont do this
>>1080878It's fucking unplayable. Game crashes seemingly at random when absolutely fuckall is happening on the map, it's basically unplayable for me.
>>1102835They keep adding a lot of fuck all tweaks and fixes, but don't solve core problems like the netcode and shit optimization. Slowly being killed off for anyone who's not a sweaty fag camping premiere
>>1092836Should be fixed now
>>1088670>Pay attention to what your teammates are doingEvery time I try to do this I just get peeked and die. Better to just focus on my angle and hope my teammates are smart enough to use voice comms
>>1102835>>1102979>crash source 2
https://steamcommunity.com/groups/vmcs2join up, maybe we can get some queues going later
>>1103439Nah, I'm good.
do not hold angles in this game. if you hold angles, you're dead. only hold positions you can constantly re-peek from. this is the new meta
How the fuck is the weapon balance so shit in2, there's no fucking reason to use like 8 guns ever and the worst part is one of them is FAMAS, the only fucking cheap-ish rifle for CTThey had two fucking decades to get this right
is 4:3 fr a meme?
>>1103565Play on the resolution you are comfortable with, anything else is a meme
>>1102835LITERALLY never crashed a single time and i have probably more than 200 hours since the betaIm really starting to thing that 90% of the complaints truly are from some thirdies playing on some asus notebook from 2016The only real issue I had ONCE was a few a days ago when one of their servers died, no one was able to reconnect for like 10 mins, despite that we all did in the end, we WON the fucking game and we still all lost 1000 mmrBut aside for that its been a pretty smooth experience for me and most of the obvious complains are already getting fixed pretty quick with each update
>>1103541I love the famas, what do you mean?But the smgs are completely fucked yeah, loterallg no reason use anything but the mp9 and the uzi.
>>1103565Yes. 1080p is perfection and I say that as someone who played 4:3 for 10+ years and finally switched to native on CS2.Maybe it’s because I have slow hands being older now. 4:3 is bigger heads but they move across the screen faster, native is smaller heads but slower across the screen.
was syncing subtick shooting to the animations really that big of an improvement as redditors make it out to be?
>>1104367I don’t get killed as much by people I can’t see anymore, but something feels more off to me now with the shooting. Could be I just got used to how it was before.
>>1088438I've been playing since 1999 (version 18.104.22.168) and cs2 is shit. I'm gonna go back to 1.6.
>>1104224I had mine crash going up a ladder twice
>>1103207you also have to pay attention to where the enemy could be so you know when to focus on the angle vs the macro, yes it's difficult
>>1104229>I love the famas, what do you mean?It underperforms on all fields, there isn't really a good time to pick a FAMAS with your money. Slow as shit and inaccurate shots on a weapon that doesn't do that much damage. Not to mention we're talking about CT, where you always need more money unlike the T side
>>1104229I dislike the reload on the FAMAS. If i'm hurting for money and can't pony up for an M4 I would even settle for a sub machine gun over it.
>Teammate is watching the angle I'm exposed to>It's the only angle he has to watch>There's even a gap between the angle and my ass so someone coming from that angle has to fully come out and take a (short) amount of time before shooting me>Can see on the minimap that my teammate IS looking towards that angle only>Still get shot and die before the faggot takes his cock out of his hand and shootI am calmI am calmI am calmI won't wish death and pestilence on a person and his familyI won't wish death and pestilence on a person and his familyI won't wish death and pestilence on a person and his family
>>1080878Give me Season back
i need a new PC to play this game. would a 3060ti build be strong enough?
>>1106053I've got a 3060 laptop and it's fine, on medium graphics
>>1105872>>1106027I dont know, it just seems to work for me for some reasonIm pretty good at headshotting with it.Meanwhile I fucking suck with the galil, that is objectively supposed to be a better weapon on paper.Maybe cos I use it rarely, since you pretty much always have money for ak as T, i guess I need to practice it more
>>1106053Im playing on GTX 1650 which is pretty ass and I have no issues whatsover, while pretty much everything is on ultraThe only time ive noticed some frame drops is when I spawn as T on ancient in the water, but ive heard that apparently other people complain about that too, bht its just the start of the round so whateverThe other time ive noticed it is on inferno, while ik scoping and someone throws a molly bear me. Weirdly enough, it feels only when scoped and only happens on inferno
The virgin USP & M4A1 user>runs out of bullets, dies>thinks he's stealthy, but barrel sticks out and gets wallbanged>"B-but it just feels better" placebo copiumThe Chad P2000/M4A4 enjoyer>staying power; can hold site on his own>5-kill aces is achievable>loud gunshots asserts his dominance over the enemy>"Reloading? What's that?"
>>1106110I prefer p2000 but you don't need the extra ammo on m4a1 because it's just plain better, it's a rifle bro
>>1106120That's just not true. A1 needs to reload very frequently, 10 bullets makes a lot of difference.You can easily get bumrushed and overrun with the A1. You might take down one or two before you have to reload. A4 can spray down 4~5 people.A1 is terrible in clutch situations.
>>1106122But double or triple tapping is also much more easier no matter the range with A1. You're not supposed to be holding down left click with it. A1 is practically a laser pointer.
>>1106125A4 can burst or tap as well, that's the point. It's more versatile, the true rival to the AK.Silencer doesn't make it more accurate.You get a rifle that "feels" good to use because you like the sound it makes, in exchange you sacrifice 10 bullets and make yourself easier to spot when hiding or holding an angle, ironically defeating the purpose of stealth.A4 never let me down. If i die it's because i did something stupid, or a bad play. Meanwhile i can't count the number of times i died because the A1 was empty.A1 is good when defending, in medium/long range, with cover, guaranteeing 1 first kill. But good luck retaking bombsites or facing a rush. You're gonna get traded in situations where the A4 could have gotten you a second or third kill instead. More staying power, less time spent behind cover, more stress for T's.Statistically A4 is the better rifle.The advantages of the A1 are all intangible. You need to play like a pussy to make the best out of it.
>>1106094Famas and galil enjoyer here. Just practice their sprays, they're really strong for their price but you need to put multiple rounds on target and they're harder to control than the main rifles.>>1104229I go mp7 if I can because it's so much better than 9/mac10 at medium range. Hell cs2 shotties feel better medium range.
>>1106134>situations where the A4 could have gotten you a second or third kill instead.I'm sorry I can't imagine myself missing 15 bullets in a row. Have you tried putting the crosshair on the guy before shooting?
>>1106235Doesn't the MP9 can headshot across the map? Its first shots have perfect movement.accuracy, at least it feels like.
>>1106235galil spray is nice. Famas spray is horrible and I will never learn it.
>>1106248>Its first shots have perfect movement.accuracyThats the tec9
>want knife>have money>all knives that i want cost >500$>might as well open cases, can open ~200 at same price>meanwhile the guy i am watchingFuck it lmao, i guess i will straight up buy one
>>1106358>buying an ugly cosmetic knife in a shit game for $500+why are cs players so fucking stupid?
I have i have around 700-800 euros in cases.I have like 5 of the very first weapon cases they ever released from like a decade ago and each goes for 100 euros, plus a few other more expensive ones from those red/blue/green "esports" cases that go between 20 and 50 euros.Didnt even know I had them, I was always more of a DOTA guy and never really paid attention to muh CS skin so it was a cool surprise to find them in my inventory. I was wonderi ng wht I was getting all those phishing bot friend requests on a daily basis, kek Anyway, wanted to ask, should I just sell them, or just keep holding them? I presume all of those are a limited amount in existence and dont drop anymore, so the price shoukd just go up, right?Its not like I need steambux right now anyway so I dont mind just leaving them in my inventory for another half a decade or so, kek
>>1106417My reaction to that information: *_/_*
>>1106417>so the price shoukd just go upthere is the slim possibility they bring them back which would obviously tank the value, but i'm not sure if they've ever done it
>>1106417> I was always more of a DOTACan i trade you dota 2 stuff for them (of equal value)
>>1106047>I won't wish death and pestilence on a person and his family*their familyFucking bigot
>>1106417>>1106466I think this is topical
Don’t understand the skin obsession, besides gambling and status; only a couple look okay to me, like the WW Basilisk M4. Are there any more decent more “subtle” skins like that?
>>1106500agreed, cs skins look like shit then again people buy and like the operator skins too, cs players just have dogshit taste
>steam autumn sale for next 7 daysSo it basically confirms no new crate/operation since valve loves to time money spending events.FFS it has been 310 days since last case and 700 days since last operationWAKE UP GABE!
>>1106583muhh shit skins and shit new map
>>1106584oh yeah bro, because playing SAME game for 10+ years is so fun and leaves so much room for discussion.
>>1106588do you really only play this game for skins what the fuck
>>1106583Not until January when you can't launch CS:GO anymoreThat way they don't have to worry about stubbing new skins out of GO/having placeholders
>>1106584I liked the co-op missions the operations had
>>1106409consumerism is a fucking epidemic, people are simply just seeing the effects of it now>niggers having the gall to list mediocre 3D images on the internet for several thousands of dollarsfucking lmao. My full inventory probably doesn't even cost around $40-60 dollars bc I just directly buy what looks cool for literal cents, all factory-new, field tested, etc
I fucking hate Mirage voters.New aesthetic and tactical maps, and instead these noobs insist on playing only Mirage aka Dust3 for eternity.Can Valve please nuke this annoying overplayed boring map from the mappool already? It should be in the archaic dinosaur tier with Dust2.Leave the "Sigma" mappool for people who want to play Ancient, Overpass and Vertigo.The Delta mappool is fine, thankfully see a nice balance of Nuke/Inferno/Anubis.
>>1106725ancient, vertigo and anubis are all terrible though, which is why premier is so bad to play, half the maps are honestly god awful
>>1106726Explain?I understand the hate against Vertigo, its style is not for everyone. It's like if Nuke and Office had a baby.But Anubis has an interesting "mid" layout and odd angles similar to Overpass.Ancient is just a basic traditional 3-lane map. It's literally dust2 but green. No gimmicks (doors, ladders, glass, etc). It's the easiest new map to learn, and the only jungle setting we have. It's a homage to Aztec. I don't see how you can hate Ancient.
nuke and overpass are objectively the best maps.allows for big brain high IQ plays and strats. inferno and mirage are just aim duels, these maps don't allow for much mind games
>>1106725>>1106732>>1106729Most maps that would be considered "tolerable" just have a bunch of wanna be esports sweats on it who refuse to learn anything else (or hate everything else), making the gameplay awful. The rest of the maps are saturated garbage when you have fags holding "bullshit angle #5834" or someone hiding 5 miles across the map and making rounds take a million years just to get head tapped off screen from some forehead pixels. For me, it's been a ranking of "which map is the least terrible" not which one is "good". I like Vertigo's aesthetic and tolerate other maps
>>1106807rarely had enjoyable matches on Ancient. Even though it's design is unique, it has some of the most braindead mundane play, similar to Nuke. Overpass and Anupiss can be alright with practice
>>1106814What are you talking about, de_nuke has always been the GOAT strategic map because sound and game sense plays a huge role more than any other map. Als has doors, ladders, glass, vents,Nuke allows for some fun cat & mouse games. It's the one map where aim alone isn't enough, a player with worse aim but better game sense can outsmart you. Nuke rewards high IQ plays which is why it's the best map. Overpass is a close second.Inferno matches can be intense, because it's like you're locked in an MMA octagon with the claustrophic streets, but the map layout itself is just generic 3-lane, ultimately it just revolves around who aims better and nade executions.
>>1106878what's your thoughts on cache? nuke and cache were really the only maps i played in csgo and nuke is literally all i play in cs2 (meaning i only play comp so i can play it )
>>1106878The game sense you're referring to feels to have turned sour when checking 7 different corners for some pixels and walking around the maps for 3 minutes. Not to mention of tons of fuckers who vote for it but don't know what they're doing and die outside or in side hall. A lot of the peeks are very annoying even after learning the map, and the only action you get turns into a chore. I'm all for tactical, high IQ plays, but the amount of dead air you get on that map incentivizes some of the worst parts of this game
>>1106878NTA and I like Nuke too but there is a very obvious design quality difference between the interior parts and the exteriors imo
>>1106901>and walking around the maps for 3 minuteson nuke? it's so fast getting to the sites i don't really ever see much of players just wandering around clueless.
>>1106910The beautiful thing about Nuke is how map control works.If a T manages to sneak behind smokes into secret or vent, it changes the entire dynamic. CTs now have to give up outside map control and effectively turtle up inside. There are a lot of subtle nuanced shifts in Nuke map control that cannot be replicated on any other generic horizontal 3-lane map.Retaking bombsites is also not as frustrating as on Inferno or d2 because in those maps you have no choice but to get funneled into a killzone chokepoint.
I've said it before and I'll say it again.Five-Seven > Deagle5-7 is criminally underrated.
>>1106928>Retaking bombsites is also not as frustrating as on Inferno or d2 because in those maps you have no choice but to get funneled into a killzone chokepoint.hahahaha noif Ts take A and you're anywhere besides outside or lobby already, you're useless. you're forced to go up ladder or go into lobby which is suicide if they have control over it
>haven't played since CSGO>finally play CS2>spray with M4A1 and M4A4 is always way off>tapping is difficult for me tooI'm getting filtered hard as a CTI carried over all my settings from CSGO to CS2 and it just feels worse than I remember1.2 sens @ 800 DPI with a 4:3 1440x1080 resWhat do?
>>1106970Look into the ways into A site that T's have to worry about:>Heaven>Outside>Hut>Lobby>VentExposed to lots of possible angles. A lot of times T's don't really know what angle to hold since they don't know where you're coming from. If you play your cards right (teammates, grenades, no sounds) you can easily take A.Compare that to a horizontal map. Ts know where you're coming from and have set up a crossfire from ratty angles, you're fucked.Nuke has nuance, it's the only one of its kind. Vertigo tries to be Nuke but its more like as_Oilrig.
>>1106977Aim maps and DM.
>>1106992nuke really is kino
I miss cs_747
>>1107004i wish de_blackgold was in cs2, would like to see if it's as fun as i remember it being
They WILL bring it backI know it
>>1106466Fuck no anon, im seething that i didnt pay more attention to CS, i havent spend a single cent on that game and i was surprised that I have like 700 euros in meme chests out of nowhereMeanwhile ive spend probably around a thousand through the years on battlepasses and other meme shit in dota and like 90% of my inventory costs literal cents. Dota economy is completely fucked >>1106460Well that would suck. Oh well, its just steambucks anyway and I dont buy much vidya anyway, so its not like I could cash them out for real money
>>1106992>Look into the ways into A site that T's have to worry about:nearly of which are negated by a back site plant
Anons, I need mo' boolets
>>1080878i sold all my skins before they crashed, and now they crashed lol
>>1107237does that mean it's a buyers market for all those then? I'm literally new to the game and want a better knife than the default one, nothing fancy. I have zero baggage from GO.
>>1107245Yeah, prolly a good time to buy some right now, especially cases. They are only going up considering how popular CS2 is and will be and with the new drop system it feels like randomly getting just s free skin is more rare
What agent skin should I buy?I just want the 4 classic T and CT player models. It's dumb you only see SAS and Phoenix all the time.I don't care about gloves,knife,weapon skins or those ridiculous named agents and w*men.
>>1107379Just dont buy the annoying fucking female CT with the sassy voice, shit is fucking unbearable
>>1107398What about music kits? :)
>>1107379Ct:The only good one is Lt. Commander Ricksaw | NSWC SEALT:Elite Trapper Solman or Maximus | Sabre
>>1107379U.S SEAL soldierGerman KSK9French GIGN / Gendarmé"Jungle" Elite Crew"Ground Rebel" Elite CrewAny of the Guerilla rambo skins.Sadly there is no Arctic Avengers.
in a game rn with some russian faggot who is clearly walling but still misses half his awp shots holding corners jfcwhy the fuck does western europe have to play with russians, going to uninstall after this fuck this shit game
How viable is it to play this game and earn skins to sell to clueless zoomers? Given I have no skills at all currently
>>1107502not viablejust join swagbucks and do surveys you'll make more money
>>1107498lmao we actually managed to make it a draw he was so fucking bad, he dropped almost 40 kills too
I have a weird questionIs difference between 60 (sixty) Hz monitor and 144 Hz monitor noticeable?
>>1104372>I don’t get killed as much by people I can’t see anymoreThat doesn't have anything to do with the timing of your gun's animations.>but something feels more off to me now with the shooting.They only made the first bullet of a spray tick-independent, the rest of the spray is apparently still as it was. That might make spraying stranger. >Could be I just got used to how it was before.That's definitely a possibility.
>>1107405Dont buy the emo garbage...
>>1106417You should give some to any good buddies you may or may not have. They deserve it.
>>1107576Nah, they are all a bunch of two-faced snakes
I am pisslow but i've noticed i've been getting a hell of a lot higher KD/ADR and HSP when using this gun but everyone calls it bad. I also enjoy using when playing like a rat in stupid ass off angles because it has no tracers and the first 3 shots don't even need to be controlled so you can just double dink a guy easily.so what's exactly wrong with the gun?
>>1107630i've been using it a lot in cs2 when i never used it at all in csgo, it's actually really good at close range, sprays can be very annoyingly inconsistent though
>>1107630Use whatever gun you enjoy, don't let others dictate what to use. MP5 isn't bad but it's not exceptionally good either, it's similar to the MP7.Take the 'meta' with a grain of salt.Pros were completely sleeping on the AUG for years until they finally discovered how good it is. Same with the Five-Seven and now the XM shotty. Even the Negev has its uses since it dropped price to 1700. It absolutely shreds through smoke and is perfectly accurate after the first couple shots.
>>1107688this.the only weapons to avoid are the m249, auto-snipers, sawed-off (nova is better) and cz75 (glorified zeus)the rest is fair game
>>1107698>auto-snipersIf you have 10k+ last round it's a good weapon>m249Great trolling potential>sawed-offAlso a glorified zeus
>>1107698Auto-snipers are not shite, just too fucking expensive but you still have some reason to pick them, unlike; the MP5, UMP, FAMAS, sawed-off, m249, the revolver and the fucking F I V E K DOLLARS autosniper which are just "another weapon but worse". That's the reason why people shit on the balance of CS2, it's not that weapons are unusable tier bad but are just strict downgrades of other stuff. cz75, bison and Famas are also exceptions where they are supposed to have their niche but do it so fucking badly that you end up not having a reason to use them again.Honestly that's my gripe with CS2 guns. M4A4 to A1-S is a definite side grade where you're definitely getting some benefits over other stuff.There are reasons to pick the p250 and reasons to pick five-seven depending on the situation. But what situation would you ever pick the mp5 over the mp7? Why even have them both on your loadout and not just the mp7? Why ever put m249 on your loadout when Negev is there?Sorry for the long post and all and in the grand scheme of things these are not that important but with very small nudgings these weapons could be made useful too and give this game much more variance.
>>1107821The problem with auto snipers is you cant really go on the offensive. These weapons are just built for camping.>Hold an angle as CT in bombsite>T's took the other bombsiteGood fucking luck retaking with a SCAR.
Haven’t played CS since Source, started again last month. Spraying ~4-5+ shots still feels shit to me, especially compared to tapping heads with an ak. I never practice but I think I have to start focusing on stopping movement and spray patterns. Becoming aware of the thought that I feel like I have to practice because I am sucked into the competitiveness is a deflating feeling. Hope community servers more focused on fun start thriving..
>>1107958Just play DM and Casual until you understand the fundamentals. You're a Sourcebaby, you're probably not used to 1.6 gameplay. Source was easy as shit, which is why it never really took off as an e-sport and pros stuck with 1.6 until CSGO came out.
>>1108012real chads were Condition Zero enjoyers
>>1108012Playing casual is so nuts sometimes, it’s hard to say it’s good for practice; people just play insane and hold angles or rush like you would never see in a competitive game. Util spam/sounds/gameplay context muddies it
>>1108037Casual to learn the map "contact points" where both teams meet.That's the most important thing when learning a new map. You're free to fuck around in a low-pressure environment.When dead, spectate the best player in the server and learn. Sometimes I just join a casual server and be a spectator. Just pretend you're watching a demo except it's live. You'll spot lots of mistakes people make, things you might pick up and notice etc.
I see a lot of Nuke hate around but I love the sound/game knowledge/fakeouts it enables. I wish we just had fun maps and didn’t have to think in terms of “lanes” but that’s what it’s been built around now
Is it strange to see the same players over-and-over? As someone in upper-north California I’m seeing some people a state away from me (curiosity makes me look at profiles) connecting to the same Los Angeles servers. Hearing about millions of players make this feel strange.
>>1108050Overpass is the best of both worlds.It's a big map, and a hybrid between Nuke's tactical nature & the more traditional horizontal maps like Inferno/D2.
>>1108079It's great on paper but playing T side is always cancer there for me
>>1108079Overpass for me in CS:GO was my bread and butter next to Inferno, but now whenever I play it I fuck up terribly, like I forgot the entire map meta or something.
Why the fuck does this game just delete your inputs whenever any connection mishap happens? That has to be the dumbest way to do this on a fucking 5v5 fps game
Is there a way to play deathmatch without bots?
>>1107847The hipfire accuracy of the autos is actually really good, you can def clear with an auto. Hop in a dm lobby and try it, it's surprisingly reliable.
>Cloud9 is now a Russian teamWhat
Redpill me on the glockHow the FUCK do i kill people with that garbage ass pistol
I dont get this map.Its so fucking shit. Its hideous, playing T side on it is pure suffering, retaking a side is pain in the ass and yet everyone seems to love it and its probably the most played map in the game even more so than inferno or dust2(rip)I just dont get it. What do I need to do for it to "click" for me...
>>1108994i miss dust2 desu. my best and fav map
>>1108994That map is only fun with a friend stack, since you really need people to know their smoke lineups to do anything on T sideI started playing Anubis over Mirage, if I’m gonna look at an ugly ass map it should be fun at least, with a lot of CQC engagements
But how would you fix Mirage anons?
>>1109250Lost causeFuck Mirage
>>1108994it's a decent map in a game full of really shit maps but desu i always feel a bit out of place on ct side, never really feel comfortable in any position
>>1109395>i always feel a bit out of place on ct side, never really feel comfortable in any positionThis but both sides, the entire map feels awkward instead of bad or horrible
>>1109491i dont mind going through under, and mid is ok if the team can get smokes right, but pushing palace or A stairs or through B hallway always feels weird
>>1107405I AM DE ONEDONT NEED NO GUNTO GET RESPECT UP ON DE STREETS
>>1107405I just muted MVP music, fuck that gay shit
>>1108994t. some guy who can't smoke window.
Teach me some easy smokes please
I swear to god there's some sbmm bullshit where your bullets disappear or do no fucking damage in cs2
>>1108994it's one of the only decent, easier to learn maps in an old ass game with fossils who've lived past their time and newer additions that are just plain shit. Everyone who plays it are usually newer people or simply mirage babies who don't want to leave their EZ pub stomping grounds.
>>1109640it does feel like it at times, i'd been wondering about that in csgo too but it feels much more pronounced in 2, but it's probably just dogshit netcode or something
>>1088438cs source was fun, csgo was not
>>1102979>but don't solve core problems like the netcode and shit optimizationthey do exactly that retard
>>1104367thats weird way to call itshooting was delayed by multiple frames before, now its done always on next frame"animation" is reddit buzzword
mirage is the saving grace to this game now that cache is gone. bring back abbey, only got to play that map once>>1106053im still playing on a 9yo gpu and v*lve have zero power over me indulging in new overpriced overpowered gpus that will only be used by some russian rat spread through their dogshit server browser to mine coins on
>>1109959i read that the cache is going to take a long while before possibly returning because the original mapmaker is working on remaking santorini or whatever before remaking cache
I might be the only guy who absolutely lived this map and really wants it back
>>1109959>>1106053Literally everyone plays CD on low settings, your gpu is irrelevant and it runs on a litetal toaster with everything on low.I have a beast PC and still play it on low, only character/gun models are ultra
>>1107630MP7 is just superior for me, the silencer can make a noticeable difference, but I never managed to make it work
>>1107829The revolver has been unusable since it came out. Even in the dark times when it did oneshots to the chest it was basically unusable due to delay of the shot and since the nerf the revolver has just been delegated to being the meme gun without any possibility to use it seriously. And this has just been a fact of the game for many years, literally:>Yeah there's that gun the devs added and you literally cannot use it because it is so badI don't know why Valve refuses to give a shit about this, but it's such a fucking waste, since it would be so easy to fix
>>1110184It can OHKO armorless enemies with a stomach shot at closer distances, which makes it somewhat useful for a few scenarios
it's bad (btw I'm not even good I'm actually pretty shit this is just showing how bad the MM can get, and is most of the time)
>>1110184>it was basically unusable due to delay of the shotwhen the revolver first came out there was no delay to the shot, literally everyone was using it because it was so OP
>>1110184the delay and shit you mentioned were added post nerf bc of how busted the gun was but I get your point, it's annoying how many guns are horribly unbalanced and completely useless. I use revolver solely bc I like them these days, but it's a damn hard learning curve
>>1110184it's crazy.the PP-Bizon has nearly 0 use case scenarios that aren't outclassed by other guns. shame because it has one of my favorite skins in the game.
>suck ass>keep ranking up because I sometimes do OK or have good teammates and every single match is +300win -100loss no matter what
>>1110184Taking off the silencer is another example of this. >there's animations for it>the whole process has sound>it makes a difference in the killfeed>but it just doesn't have any positive effects whatsoeverWhy? Why was development time spent on this?
>>1113018you could do it in 1.6 and source so if they removed the option it would look like removing features
>>1113018to meme on shitters when you are owning them. duh
>>1113018Decreasing your length with your barrel around corners. That is a legitimate advantage that is so niche that I think in my 4500 hours it mattered maybe one time on Inferno back when I went through a slight M4A1-s phase.
>>1112445for a while i was using the bizon like an actual god, its damage is terrible but running and gunning i was better with it than the p90 or any other gun, getting spraying headshots easilynever managed to do it again after that stretch of games
>>1113018not sure about the USP, but the M4A1 is more accurate at short distances while moving with the silencer off
>>1110009nah the site to the right of your screenshot was fucking aidsso wide open it literally made no sense
cs2 is peak, the best the shooter has ever beenim trans btw
>>1112871Wait till you hit 4k
>>1113866the last game i played of cs2 before i uninstalled i had a transsexual in my teamcoincidence? i dont think so
>>1113683no it's not, there is zero difference on either gun. the only difference is visual and noise.
>>1114460>no it's not, there is zero difference on either gunwrong
>go to faceit for better matchmaking>get paired with a lvl 10, 9 and 8 >we are against a team of 5 and 6s
>>1114460Why claim something that is so effortlessly proven wrong?
>cheaters died down>servers start fucking up where everyone on both teams can't play at allI guess I'll stop for a few weeks, jesus christ10 years of experience huh
Best m4 skin in game?
>>1112445The Bizon is good for one thing only, and that is killing several unarmored opponents in an anti-eco with the added bonus that if they kill you all they get is a shitty Bizon. But there's no reason you can't do most of that with an MP9/MAC-10 and just retreat when you're out of ammo, the slight inconvenience will still result in not being stuck with a Bizon next round.
>>1114961maybe faceit is dead since there is not really an y benefits of it other than FPL and anticheat
>>1115206M4a4 the emperor
I don't get why this game is so popular, it was fine playing CS up until about 2007 but technology has moved on. I can't fathom spending thousands of hours playing the same small maps, checking the same corners, contesting the same choke points etc. Don't even get me started on the skins.
>>1115679see >>1106704. Some people chase after the new fad, while others will literally age and rot away with their own "cornerstone"
>>1106409>>1106704Retards will buy video game skins and and proceed to shit on NFTs not realizing the irony
>>1115679it's a game that has high skill in both aiming/gun mechanics as well as requiring team coordinationmost games dont even come close
>>1115679>i can't fathom why people just kick the ball back and forth down the same field, with the same grass, and the same goalposts
the subtick is suppose to fucking helpnot make the game feel asswho the fuck asked for this?
>stopping to shot doesn't fucking matter because of some le absolutely better tick guise and whoever the server favors wins on top of unreliability, peaker's advantage 2
>>1116285take your fucking meds
Valve need to reduce the M4A4 price to $2900
>switch from 1060 to 3060>only to find out my CPU was the problem Fuck this shit. I bought a 240hz monitor for this game and now I'm stuck playing at supposedly 160fps but feels like 40. Is the i5-9400f really so outdated already? I bought it maybe 3 years ago. In the past 3 year old CPUs would be nearly indistinguishable from new ones if you had a good GPU
>>1115788they're one in the same batch of retards, hopefully people posting here or online in general realize that >>1116065NTA but >we both know one of these definitely has more merit than the other.
>>1116065>kicking that ball gets you physical activity, memories, knowledge, friends, practice, career, etc>playing that same game gets you practice, memories, friends, carpal tunnel, wallet drained, senile company who fucks up their game, maybe a career, ???cmon anon
>>1115679The best part of CS is playing on different and new maps on custom servers. Unfortunately 99% of morons would rather grind comp until they get mad and sweaty. I also haven't played CS2 since my craptop can't run it but I hope it didn't kill all the csgo custom maps
>>1103439I'm shit, you don't want to queue with me
>>11166341060 6 gb is extremely solid. You definitely shoulda checked cpu first.
>>1116765I was just playing atix helicopter after a few comp games to chill out. Its not as popular as it was but community maps are still around and fun
>5 days of playing>12 games>10 losses>rank from 8700 to 6800why do I deserve this pain? like usually I'd at least get one game with some guy who is way above his rank or an enemy team who has no idea but every enemy team has had sublime peeks. I've been hitting up aimbotz, DM, practicing peeks and smokes. I wish this shit was forced 50 because i'm at a fucking 45% winrate
>>1116580That would instantly delete the m4a4-s, retard
>>1080878It will be good in a year
>learning the game in silver >every. single. game. there is some guy going 24-2 on either team it's really disheartening trying to learn the game and improve and then me and my entire team getting fucking shit on by some guy on his 3rd account just to fuck with new players.
>>1115173>cheaters died downWhen? You can still hop around and kill everyone because Valve's meme spread seed calculation still allows for nospread (even though it's somewhat limited compared to the old days)
>6 gb patch>LITERALLY NOTHINGTHE FUCK?
>>1117607no it wontM4A1 still has superior spray patternfirst 3 bullets hit crosshair ffs
Today was the first time i managed to get >90 kpmNot sure if its anything worthy but i am still happy
>>1117607>M4a1-s still has better bodyshot damage and requires one less bodyshot to kill>the only advantage the a4 has is the bigger mag and the medicore dink bodyshot at extremely long rangesm4a4 needs some help. you're paying more, for less damage, tracers and more recoil.
>>1118376>>1118424>>1117710Not him, and im shit at the game, but why does it seem that most pros use the m4a4 more that the silenced one, if people say its worse?
>>1118631More damage at a distance, larger magazine, more bullets.I don't know how many of the 'pros' consider this as well, but my biggest reason is that the spray pattern is almost identical to the AK
Cache is a shit maponly the NA scene likes it, because muh twitch streamers
The virgin USP & M4A1 user>runs out of bullets, dies>thinks he's stealthy, but barrel sticks out and gets wallbanged>"B-but it just feels better" placebo copium>sounds like a paintball gunThe Chad P2000/M4A4 enjoyer>staying power; can hold site on his own>5-kill aces is achievable>loud gunshots asserts his dominance over the enemy>"Reloading? What's that?"
Take the Five-SeveN pill.On forcebuys or halfbuys, just get armor + 5-7.You don't need an SMG, shotgun or Famas.5-7 absolutely mogs. And it's only $500.Even pros are sleeping on this god-tier pistol.
>>1118682So, whos right, the pros or the people saying the silenced one us better
>>1118948That's the great thing about CS weapons. Half of them have a usecase/situation where it's the best tool for the job, or biggest bang for the buck.Also, whichever you prefer.
>>1118964Well yeah, but the "situational" meme doesnt really work, cos i dont wanna have two m4s equiped in my already limited rifle pool, gotta lick one and go with it, regardless of the game
>>1118868>die >lose all your money>can't afford anythingwoooooooooooooooow
i uninstalled cs2
>>1119018can i have your coolest weapon?
>>1119031i may be retarded enough to have played cs but im not retarded enough to have spent money on its ugly skins
>>1119034>played cs>never got weapon dropweird but ok
>>1118964>half>"situation based">only a 3rd of the guns see actual play bc they serve the singular purpose better than all of its similar optionslol. lmao.lol. lmao
>>1118948just play whatever works for you, the spray patterns are dogshit and I don't waste enough hours to brute force them without slow tapping so I stick to the silenced laser (it works for me bc I'm conservative with ammo anyways)
>>1119048>only a 3rd of the guns see actual playwrong. 50%
>>1118974Bro your rifle loadout options aren't that big to begin with.You can fit everything you need easily:>Famas / Galil>M4A1>M4A4 / AK-47>AUG / SG553>AWPThat should be your loadout.Auto-Snipers are costly meme weapons and the SSG is very difficult and finnicky to use. You don't need them.T-side gives you 1 free slot. You can equip a Scout if you want.
>>1119048Nope.While the AK-47 and AWP are the "meta", all other weapons have their purpose.Compared to previous installments of CS, submachineguns and shotguns see a lot more use now. Pros are unironically using AUG and MAC-10s now. That would be unthinkable in CS 1.6 because most weapons were trash in that game.There are only few truly useless weapons I can think of:>CZ75 (extremely niché, just a glorified Zeus)>M249 (the Negev exists, for only $1700)>Sawed-OffThe rest of the weapons all have their time and place.The reason AK/M4 are dominant is because, if money allows it, these are the most versatile weapons. They're assault rifles and work at all ranges. You can tap, spray, auto. It opens up the map and allows you to play any position and any angle.But what SMGs have over rifles is: 1. cheaper 2. no accuracy-penalty when moving so you can run & gun, strafing, dodging, jumping to throw off your opponent's aim. You can't do that with rifles because it requires you to stand still when shooting.
M4A4 is statistically better. 10 extra bullets makes a huge difference.There's a reason why the A4 is more expensive.A1 forces you to play longer range, without the threat of being bumrushed.When retaking bombsites or CQB, the A4 is much more reliable.If you're facing a 5 T rush, you'll wish you had an A4.A1 gets you traded real quick.
>>1119069I agree with everything except>T-side gives you 1 free slot. You can equip a Scout if you want.Auto sniper for the free T-slot. If you're rich in round 12, you might as well buy it and give it to the team retard. Always good fun
>>1119100>auto sniper on T-side>using auto-snipers offensivelyLolWith what crosshair?And good luck clearing angles while zoomed in, at least the AWP gets away with it because it deletes people with 1 flick shot. SCAR-20/G3SG1 is only good for camping and hoping the action doesn't take place somewhere else.
>>1119113Sounds like you're the team retardWant a drop?
>>1119077submachines, pistols, and shotgunseach have less useful variants that either bare a price tag as it's only difference or has one gun that completely out preforms the other due to nerfs/buffs, etc. for most players (negev/m249 comparison as well). You can talk about "strategy", usage or whatever, but can't deny how many guns just take up roster space for no reason. They should be fixed, removed or at least given differentiating features. About damn time scoped ARs actually became useful
>>1119125Drop me an XM or P90.You know, actual salt extractors.
>>1119137>You know, actual salt extractors.ahh! gotchahere's a negev
>>1119136The weapons are fine. We see a lot more variety now than we did in CS 1.6, CZ and Source.CS2 has "Peeker's Advantage" and MR12, that means SMGs play a much bigger role now.Only the Meme249 needs a rework because nobody is paying $5000 for an LMG that has worse accuracy than a $1700 LMG.
>>1119145yeah but the M249 isn't made by kikes so it's worth putting that in your loadout over the n*g*v
>>1119145>muh varietythey can't even get the base gameplay right and you're talking about variety....?
>>1119151What's wrong with the gameplay?It's still quintessentially Counter-Strike.
The only actually effective anti-cheat measure this game has are griefing cooldowns
>muh defusal mapsI miss the plethora of hostage rescue maps.cs_assault and cs_militia actually felt like you're infiltrating as a CT.It had comfy Rainbow Six vibes.pic related my favorite hostage map.
>>1119159Pretty sure the "cheating" problem is wildly over exaggarated.Noobs getting tilted because they're getting owned by veterans with thousands of hours in CS.The tears in Steam forum is hilarious. People can't get handle the idea there are others faster than them at clicking heads.
>>1119173>cs_assault and cs_militia awesome maps. I also liked office in source. Not so much in go and 2.But I'm glad they aren't doing hostage maps in premiere and official matches
>people playing with exorbent amount of weapon skins, gloves and different knives>still using default agent??? can someone explain this phenomena.why are even pros still using SAS/Phoenix in LAN tournament matches?tired of seeing the same fucking player models over and over
>>1119193Good point.You'd think using a team of 5 SEAL soldiers or the Brazilian spec-ops on Ancient would be a good idea for the camouflage.
>>1119193because people are retardedor they got their weapon skins long ago in csgo when agent skins weren't a thing yet
>>1119173we need more appreciation and work for it, Italy is fucking dogshit and has no reason to remain on the list and office gets boring after a bit>>1119178>people have been cheating since beta>tons of documented accounts of people literally streaming themselves cheating on empty, new accounts>pub-stompers plaguing lobbies for hours (never a matter of if, just when)>old ass game with its saturated difficulty curve and extreme skill gaps, you can closet cheat out of your ass and have no one know any betterall hell hasn't broke loose but leave it to boneheads to pretend it's not there
>>1119199You're the reason I get called cheater every other match.Legit good players suffer from the paranoia of cheating.Instead of >Wow, he's a good player. Good play. He outsmarted me.we get>He must be cheating!toxic matches and innocents getting reported for being 2good.Yes cheaters exist, always have, but they're not as numerable as reddit or steam posts make it out to be. Provide demos or shut the fuck up.
aug > m4
>obvious dogshit player and is getting stomp>suddenly knows corners and when to prefire, prolevel of game sense from 0 to 100>check steam profile >>>>>private profileAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA
>>1119255And why do so many players have that anime girl avatar with her tongue sticking out?
>>1119193All agent skins are shit, either look too goofy and out of place like the fucking big flaps diver or the le ebin edgy clown mask IM DA JOKAH BABY or already too similar to the default skins. Or women with annoying voicelinesId never bother spending a cent on the current agents, unless valve releases new ones that you can get through operations or something again
>>1119199Man, Italy in 2 looks so fucking good, shame they put so much work on a map that no one ever plays...They really did great job with Italy and Inferno, now id like to see the same treatment for the other maps, or at least the main rotation onesIf fucking neck myself if I have to play a thousand more boring ass fucking mirage games...
is there anything worse than the guy who trades/baits and gets high KDR but has no teamplay, bad gamesense and no smokes then flames someone who's actually trying to win the game for being 2nd and then loses the match.with dogshit teammates you know the match is over but with that dude his aim is good enough that you could win if he wasn't playing like that
>>1119976push palace some more bro xD
I really can't aim with pistols, I really REALLY can't, except the R8, I somehow pop heads with that>click on their heads broI KNOW, that's the problem, give me any gun and I can click on heads with my shitter ass on occasion. Pistols though? never How the fuck do you aim with usp or glock
>>1119986I dont play shit maps lolI spam exclusively inferno
>>1120003with glock, just spam it and 8/10 times youll be good, with USP you need to focus on one target and hold your shots until its on their head.
>>1120003train your tracking aim. track and slowly shoot
I hope everyone who votes for Mirage gets cancer.You're the reason Overpass and Ancient barely get any play.Get cancer in real life and die.
Kill Mirage-voters. Behead Mirage-voters. Roundhouse kick a Mirage-voter into the concrete. Slam dunk a Mirage-voter into the trashcan. Crucify filthy Mirage-voters. Defecate in a Mirage-voter's food. Launch Mirage-voters into the sun. Toss Mirage-voters into active volcanoes. Judo throw Mirage-voters into a wood chipper.
>>1080878No it isnt go fuck yourselfApex legends and both tf2 and tf2 are better
>>1120250>tf2LMAO, dude. you're a fucking retard.>infested with human cheaters, maybe 10% (not even hyperbole) of the playerbase are either closet cheaters or blatant cheaters>shit tons of bots>no updates>pyro STILL isn't working as intended and has bugged damage since his nerf in post-JI multiple years agolmao kys and this is coming from someone who spent over 10k hours (across Xbox and PC) and 1k on TF2. nobody should play TF2. TF2 is one of the worst games on the market right now.i'd sooner direct my friends to play fucking call of duty before TF2. at least cod has devs that ban people that cheat.
>>1119960these kinds of niggers unfortunately fill most of the player population these days. Just braindead retards who wanna click heads and stack kills like it's a DM lobby, but have 0 clue how the map works, knows no strats, can't use utility outside of a dogshit flash or spamming nades, etc. Then they have the nerve to flame everyone below them even though that guy with half the kills was the one making all of the actual plays to get wins. I stopped playing with my friends bc of how braindead they were only seeing the KDR scoreboard as a monument of gameplay
so. how do I actually learn this game with people of my skill level? every game in silver is me and 23 other silvers and some LME with the same thing on the enemy team.3-4 actual silvers with 2/1 gods vs 3-4 actual silvers with 2/1 gods. awful environment to learn in.is faceit good?
>>1118682>More damage at a distanceThe silencer does more damage anon not the other one
>>1119145Holy shit retard stop saying "SMG's" like there's one gun called "SMG", the biggest redundancy exists in that weapon group. You literally don't even have a niche use for all but three and only 2 of the remaining 3 are actually good. SMGs were legit never this shit.
I love this game so much but I find myself struggling to enjoy it. Premier matchmaking at 15k Elo is absolute retard mode, people are just braindead. I'm not perfect either but my god some people should be relegated to <5k. try to play faceit to see what that's like in cs2. first game our team is matched against a team that's got >65% win chance based on Elo, 3 level 8s and 2 level 10s against a team of two 8s and the rest level 6/7. second game there's only two maps to play cuz some faggot paid for faceit. is there any fucking way to play this game without wanting to kill myself
>>1120473>is there any fucking way to play this game without wanting to kill myself>he's queuing elo hell sweat swamps premiere and faceit>without his own teamfor you only hell awaits
>>1120477I guess I already knew the answer to my question. how the hell does anyone find a team? my friends are useless as well
Are there still wallhackers?Is there still RNG hit detection?
How would you solve solo Q-hell for the players if you were a dev, anon?
>>1119077You forgot the revolver, dual barettas and pp bizon, because they are just that irrelevant
>>1120505Dulies definitely arent bad, especially as first round buyThey are shit the moment everyone gets armour, but they have their useBizon is just dogshit, yeahAnd the revolves is just a meme
>learn dust 2 B box lurk smoke>instantly shit on the site every timeit really was that easy...

ESL on yt is playing old grand slam games. Insane how boring Astralis was to watch. Best team ever, least entertaining ever.CS2 really has improved counter strike
>>1120478hell if I know in this modern day, communities are so reserved and saturated to shit, it's hardly ever worth it trying to put yourself out there in public places to get teammates, the luck of the draw or inviting decent people from past rounds might work but this isn't the early 2010s>>1120481always anon, the only question is whether or not they're in your game and how bad is the latency>>1120591workshop and shit likely doesn't have as much ping or latency bullshit when you're by yourself, you just gotta roll with the punches and play enough to brute force sub tick
>play CS2 on average at about 170 fps, always between 140-220>play any other game on equal fps>it feels significantly faster and less janky How is this possible? It seems like I pump 1 fps for half a second and then go to 300 for the other half. The numbers seem fine but its not as good
>>1120592>i need muh widescreen s1mple/stewie2k flick shots and ADHD movements!!1!Fuck off.Astralis gave us high-IQ big brain strategy.CS is chess, not ping-pong.
Anyone else having fps drops after the new patch?
>>1120934It's probably just shaders.The micro stutters go away. You can also just load every map and spec around loading the shaders, fire every weapon, etc
>>1120934yeah, saw a video specifically detailing how input lag was matching up with Fps dropshttps://youtu.be/6qjIT8hMBRs?feature=shared
Are match demos not working? I got an epic clutch and it won't download :(
>significant fps drop when there more than 2 mollies on my screenBruh, I have a mid-high range PC, whqt do you mean?Smoke seems fine tho
>teammate DCs when we are 11-12 2v2 in the last minute of the round and the one left is the worst player on the teamgod that is such fucking bullshit. that shouldn't even be a loss.
>>1121028idk why they're so detailed and large, they fuck up gameplay when you can't see through the flames, had to turn the particples settings down to low
I fucking hate this game so much
>>1121466Real talk: The community is the ones ruining new players, I can't tell you how many times I heard people telling newbies "take it slow buddy and try to play sound", when in reality the first thing these guys should learn is how to hold W and scale the bombsite. They never learn because they are always the last men in, they get complained on by team mates and when they ask what they should be doing, we tell them to keep doing that.
>>1121028I get some pretty bad frame rates whenever there's too much blood splatter on screen.
>>1121468Yeah, I haven't played CS since it came out on the Xbox 360. got back into it on PC with CS2 and I can't tell you how many people just fucking stand around waiting for someone to make the first move>hey, we are eco. let's rush B!>team agrees>throwing my flashes in>nobody walks in>just standing in the choke>get mollied>lose
Man, why are chinese and russians so bad at this game and why the fuck are they in SEA serverGo back to your shitholes, it's so obvious when they toggleAND IT'S ALWAYS THE FUCKING ANIME GIRL STICKING OUT HER TONGUE GIF PROFILE
holy shit I just paid for prime and am playing ranked again against people that are actually somewhat competent and let me tell youholy fucking shitthese shitters have some amazing aim to the point of legitimately considering hack because that shit is just too retarded to even take seriouslymaybe I've turned into a shit player because I played too much competitive without prime and got used to completely devastating and shitting on the faces of people without giving a single fuck but now I can't do that anymoreI just got out of a match and I was top fragger along with the top fragger of the opposing team we lost to so I'm not even completely trash either but fuck I was not prepared for the completely pants on head retarded lucky as fuck shots these shitters were landing on me, I just thought I'd let you know that I'm going to have to start stepping my game up because that shit was so far removed from my non-prime games that it's retarded
>>1121566Happened with me playing PRIME after a month of map MM grind, I couldn't get away with sloppy positions and un-optimal timings, they will absolutely tap you if you play on automatic pilot yet somehow I only play against a guy that knows how to hold W once every three games.Playing aggressive cs usually folds most of these guys, they take too long to adapt and when they start expecting you, you are too ahead on the scoreboard for it to matter.
>>1121597>Playing aggressive cs usually folds most of these guys, they take too long to adapt and when they start expecting you, you are too ahead on the scoreboard for it to matter.if you saw the way I played you'd realize that you are talking to the most braindead retarded autistic shitbag that rushes so hard and gets killed so many times that it's actually even somewhat embarassing that I even manage to get at the top of the scoreboard.I constantly play with morons unable to adapt to my retard bumrush strats and it really seems like my strat has been getting popular in pubs, I know exactly what rushing does to a team unable to adapt to it and it wrecks absolute shit and even when I face someone who rushes it's actually pretty difficult to actually do anything about it if the person isn't complete trash and has good aim.I have two plays on either team and they both involve rushing into the enemy team like some downs syndrome moron because I have low attention span and no respect for the enemy team so I don't have the patience to sit around waiting for someone to peak me so I can get kills.
>>1120157You are correct, legit players should always start on Ancient's CT side :)
Why were most of the maps I enjoyed playing removed yet garbage like Inferno/Ancient/Vertigo continues to be in the game?>Cache>Cobblestone>AgencyWhy hasn't Season been added back in yet?
every time i play this shitty game with a friend i get ranked with subhuman russians who are 70iqthis game needs a white european filter/region selection to be fun
>>1121468Straight up facts. The worst player in my group is always last alive because he’s “playing slow and picks”. In reality he’s just hiding the whole damn game hoping for an easy “lurker kill” but 7/10 times he’s in an absolute shit position or making noise. Then he gets pissed off about his k/d or losing when he’s not contributing much at all. Honestly I’m about to just make him our entry fragger so he can start learning. Your comment has just solidified it in my mind.
>>1121748Play custom servers, be part of the solution
I wish faceit was available on linux so that I could join mapcore

>>1122478Oh thanks, I forgot it existed, that's a good advice
why are these morons so dishonest?anyone who buys SMGs should be distanced from the game, augs and awps that you bought yourself and didn't pick up means you're total trash at the gameI only buy SSG deagle ak or M4, sometimes I use the USP too but apart from that I have never in my entire life picked up an SMGI might not have the best score and I might lose sometimes but at least I have my pride intact unlike these total shitters that walk up to people with their gay SMGs and press m1 button
>just got VAC bannedwhat the fuck? I didn't do shit.
>>1122586bait or brain damage?>>1122601You play with friends? Guilt by association is a thing in CS
>>1122605if you play with any of the weapons I mentioned you're trash at the game, sorry to break it to you.
>>1122605>Guilt by association is a thing in CSThe most Valve does is remove your wins that you got in a stack with cheatersYou can also get VACd/gamebanned through phone number sharing, but I doubt that's the case for whatever the fuck is happening right now
>>1122606If you don't force buy smg's after losing the pistol as CT, you're too retarded for CS2
>>1122610sorry man but you belong under ''trash''
I know and understand positionsI got utils down to a T, so much so that I am my groups utils-guyI can predict and do call outs for my team and they work greatI know crosshair placement and recoilYet I literally cannot win gunfights. I tried to use trainers like aimlabs and the test results show I "improved" yet I can't do shit on the real deal and is the bottomfrag of the groupPeak a corner? DeadHold? DeadLiterally upfront on a distracted enemy? DeadI guess I am retarded and really not meant for FPS? I have no idea what to do anymore
>>1122614You can be good at everything else other than aiming and shooting and still be bad, if you manage to be actually good at aiming and shooting, everything else is secondary
>>1122182Were we in the same match? Lol I swear to god this happened to me last night on overpass. >I have to walk con with bomb because I’m anchor!>we have cleared B and are on site and mollying heaven.>he’s walking down con>he barely gets onto site before the hell storm of util and bullets begin from rotations>we loseFucking idiot could’ve just planted and we could have backed off site and probably won.
>>1122605nah I only play occasionally with my brother and solo queue. And I know my brother doesn't cheat cus I see him play IRL all the time.
>>1122614All it takes is practice and experience. There's several issues like the ping and subtick that can cause you to get fucked either way but improving your reaction time, aim/recoil, and gunplay will always give you a better chance. Depending on how bad you really are, you'd best spend time in deathmatch and/or casual to practice winning gun fights against real people where the stakes are low. Honestly being bottom frag doesn't matter at all if you make consistent impact plays (planting bomb, using utility, nailing callouts, etc) and your k/d isn't making you complete dead weight (1/1 ratio of k/d versus 1/8 or drastically worse)>>1122616>2023 and cavemen still only look at the scoreboard to determine worth
>>1122614Brute force learning, my guy. Aimless niggas like you and me have work twice if not thrice as hard than people who have the knack for playing FPS. Come on now, the earlier you accept you are shit, the more you're likely to change. Idk why you expect to be instantly better after aimlabs.
>>1121468>>1121856where tf are you two playing at? People still get instakicked in my servers the moment someone notices they slightly don't know what they're doing, even in casuals (which is fucking retarded considering that's the place to learn the game). More often than not I get >>1121482 happening in my matches which leads to the last guy alive after a bad push getting shat on
>>1122617Wasn't on overpass but yeah fucking idiots are common enough
>>1122907>Aimless niggas like you and me have work twice if not thrice as hard than people who have the knack for playing FPS.it's not fair broswhy is this allowed
>>1122907>work twice or thrice as hard>silver copeHAHAHAHAHAHA
>>1122907>>1122971>Aimless niggas like you and me have work twice if not thrice as hard than people who have the knack for playing FPS.Just turn on easy mode
>>1122981Gold nova, actually. Don't know if I'll get any better but I'll keep on grinding
>>1122986Nobody cares, this isn't your blogshut the fuck up shitter
is it possible to make a counterstrafe bind? have all wasd inputs on mousebutton?
>>1122998yeah, but it'd cost some legwork and cause potential input lag when you could just do it manually
peaker's advantage seems worse
>train in trainers>says i became better>still get shot first like enemies know when I'll show up in real matches anywaywhat's the point
>>1122614CS2 focuses harder on positioning, from my experience. I got to LE in CSGO without knowing any smokes or flashes with just my aim alone( that is until my KD dropped through the roof) , if I don't learn xyz different smokes for each map in CS2 I'm fucking dead.You should adjust your cross hair first, literally and figuratively. If you're holding your cross hair too much up/down from the headlevel, try changing it to a T-shape. If you're struggling to keep the crosshair at the headlevel, either try imaging where the players would be in your head or play a lot of deathmatch/retakes to get your placement right.>Peak a corner? Dead.>Hold? Dead.Keep in mind the game's busted right now and it rewards aggressive playstyle even more so than before. Holding positions is highly subjective, either go for the spots you feel good at, spots that provide cover or those that are generally unpredictable.
>>1122616>if you manage to be actually good at aiming and shooting, everything else is secondaryThat was the case in GO but not in 2. Everyone's gotten good aim due to bullshit-low recoil and it doesn't matter as much anymore.
>>1122609>The most Valve does is remove your wins that you got in a stack with cheatersHe surely was talking about the red service medal bans. Those people got banned for being boosted by cheaters, allegedly one of them was caught using cheater lingo during an interview on stream.(Something about p-config).
>>1103493Why not do both at the same time? Peek the angles you hold.
>>1123426That's what I've been doing, always stutter-stepping left and right so as not to give the peeker an easy kill
is spraying broken in this game or something because the spraying makes no sense to me anymore
>>1123450I've swapped to crosshair following the spray and I've been doing fine
do not spray for more than 5 bullets or most of your hits wont be calculated by the server.
>>1123355>>1122614aim trainers aren't enough for CS and don't train skills actually use in a match. you need to at least play DM and pretend you are peeking corners and learn movement better. sitting in aim trainer or kovaaks hitting spawning targets will not help. you need positioning and movement.
>>1123787i think the only thing aim trainers are good for are training micro flicks. most of cs aim is making small adjustments while peeking or holding an angle. thats about all they are really useful for. they're actually more useful for games like quake because you need to aim in a specific way with LG
r8 my craftam taking ideas for stickers that might work better here too
>>1123787yea aim trainers will train your raw aim. it should help your pistols and awp but rifles and other guns are more about the feel of the gun and recoil. having a good spray etc. also you should be able to get at least top 10% on all the popular kovaak scenarios. if not keep practicing them it will still help you
>>1124062also good aim will get you out of shitty plays/retarded moves. good aim will let you do dumb ass shit and get away with a big play. if your opponents are out aiming you try to play weird off angles that they will usually be placing their crosshair at something else when they reach your view. and on T side use util and good crosshair placement
How are people not more annoyed by the lack of maps and gamemodes? I couldn't give less of a shit about esports, gambling, or competitive (gambling). I just want more variety so it doesn't get stale after literally two matches.
>Guy is removed from the match during warmup>You still have to get into the match and take the LLol!

I HATE BUGMENI HATE BUGMENI HATE BUGMENGET ME OUT OF HEREIT'S FUCKING PRIME AND THERE STILL ARE OBVIOUS WALLERS AND BOTTERSAND THEY'RE STILL IN NOVAWhy are they like this
>>1124292>Tips I should keep in mind?Communicate. If you're not playing with complete retards, you'll most likely win as long as you communicateIf you end up playing with retards, as you inevitably will, don't try to control them. Play around them. On CT, fill out the roles they don't (lot of idiots keep switching between sites, go where they don't). On T, you can try telling them where/how to go, but your better off just letting them play and either go for entry frags or support
>>1124292I would like casual if it was the actual ruleset
You don’t need good aim to play cs well. Like it’s not like call of duty when you have to flick constantly because you just don’t know where the enemies might be coming from.All you have to do is learn a default for each map and play off of that. By default I mean there’s like an optimal way to play, hold the sites aa ct and clear angles if you’re a terrorist. It varies from player to player and everyone has his own tricks. The more you play the more tricks you learn and the more you start hating on shit maps like mirage where there’s little to no variety in the ways you can play. Mirage map geometry literally makes it impossible to do something new and interesting. The whole lower mid section is absolute aids for instance.
>>1124557This is why Nuke is objectively the greatest map in CS.It rewards>situational awarenessUnorthodox map layout, vertical bombsites, sound cues and game sense become a lot more important.>game knowledgeDoors, ladders, glass, vents, basic parkour.Those who practiced KZ will benefit.>aimNuke is more 3 dimensional, compared to traditional 3-lane maps like Inferno, Dust2 and Ancient where it's mostly just aiming horizontally.Nuke is the ultimate test of your overall CS skills.It's the one map where game sense trumps aim.The Astralis era is a perfect example.The only flaw of Nuke is the minimap. You can't really tell what's going on by just looking at the minimap, whereas you can watch entire Inferno matches just with minimap, and know exactly what's going on.
>playing Vertigo casual>everyone (on both teams) just clash in the middle like lemmings>road towards A and B are barely defended>every. single. round.
I'm a poorfag and wasn't interested in CS until a few years agois prime status worth it for someone who only wants to play on the casual queue? I keep seeing smurfs and high rank ESLs but no cheaters
>>1124662>buy negev>watch all of the retards walk into my spray for free kills>switch weapons and make tactical plays later on other sides of the map no matter which team I'm playingworks every time, i also just learned smokes and mollies, it's so fun>>1124292Love me some casual since I don't have a reliable 5 stack to sweat with. Unfortunately since 5v5 casuals haven't been a thing, you're gonna have to get used to the much more silent, reserved environment where fights can end in seconds and it's not constant carnage. Communication is *necessary* and slow plays happen a fuck ton. Eco actually matters as well, so learn some basic patterns and strats to manage your money so you aren't that one guy who's under 3K halfway through the half. Comp players also utilize maps differently than casuals so learn your utility, callouts and such to be able to outplay anyone headtapping you since comp/premiere are spending way more hours practicing aim. Godspeed if you decide to solo queue, be prepared to lose a fuckton to garbage teammates
>>1124672In any case no matter what you do, prime is necessary, but at the same time people buy accounts and closet cheat past prime anyways. The one time $15 purchase is permanent, save yourself some headaches bc VAC is caveman tech
ranking up solo is nearly impossible at a certain point since you just can't consistently win matches and you bounce between 9900 and 9999 without being able to rank up.
>>1124681Is it possible to get a rank on every map at least?10 wins is doable, right?
>>1124683>competitive lol, talking about premiere. comp might as well be deathmatch
>>1124681It’s possible but it’s going to take an obscene amount of time. So unless you’re willing to sink a ton of hours into cs I’d just quit trying to rank up. Here’s the tip: To rank up with no trouble you need to have the same game knowledge as the pro and semi-pro players at 20,000+ rating.
Solo Q should be that, solo QWhy the fuck can you get matched with 4 or 5 stacks as solo
>>1124729give me advice on what to do to get that to 1/10
Hornblower u here?
>>1124662Vertigo is such an intelligence filter I swear. Even after players learn to move and shoot to a decent level it can still reveal who is a natural dumbass.
>>1124836vertigo is just nuke but without outsideancient is just dust2 but green
>>1124840Ancient is Mirage but green, which is dust 2 but worse
>>1124840The positive thing about ancient are better visuals, colors and narrow choke points. The most annoying part of the map is b ramp and that whole wall and aztec pyramid area. It’s too empty.Vertigo is hilarious because even at 15k i see people ignoring mid/ladder rushes. It’s like a turbo OP move from an annoying angle and by the time you drop terrorists are preparing to throw their grenades or spamming through smokes

>>1080878after many centuries of playing Counter-Strike, the game just feels flat now.
Just give me all the guns for both t and ct. It's stupid that I still can't just buy everything like in CS 1.6 & CS:S. A bunch of those guns are situational so having access to them isn't inherently broken. Just means on certain maps/rounds/game state/positioning the player can do some weird shit that could work.
>>1125407I used to rock Plantronics back in the day, what ever happened to them? Last time I saw them, they began shifting into "Gamer" territory and I lost track of them.

>>1125943>valuable "time"sounds like I've got my luck or people have skill issues putting themselves in narrow situations. I'm no premiere or pro player, why would I be in scenarios requiring quarter second inputs to get out [X] utility. If I need to pull out utility, it can be done safely behind cover or with a load out that nets me exactly what I need for the moment>>1126070It's practically one of the first commandments in gaming to practice new stuff in offline lobbies before throwing yourself out in the field. You're going to pick up bad habits if you're trying stuff on real players without properly learning the technique first. Wait until you can consistently do it as well as switching between strafing methods before seeing how to adapt to players

just how the fuck do people in comp and premeire shoot faster than prosyou can clearly see pros in live broadcast counter strafe then there's a good 0.5 to 0.7 in between stopping and shooting? almost all the shit i see in lobbies are shooting immediately after they stopwhat the fuck is that
>>1126845pros are counterstrafing on reaction. premiere players are counterstrafing in anticipation for when you appear in front of them as they track you with wallhacks.
>>1125373molly on mouse 4, that's it.
>>1124755I used to think this mattered, but honestly my winrate against full stacks is about the same as against solos. It's still annoying as hell and all boils down to if your team can communicate.
>>1126845Peekers adv. makes it seem like they're peeking and instashotting you without time to react, but if you watch demo from their screen it just looks normal.WarOwl recently made a video explaining this. don't hold an angle unless it's an off-angle / something they won't check
