As for Cologne, I'm sad to see Cloud9 did not bring their A-Game at all.

 

 

Remember when I first saw Freakazoid? "This guy's a pro gamer..?" lol

 

Re: Competitive/casual. I find the comp rule set to be more enjoyable (30 rounds - half time team switch, mainly) but don't really have an interest in playing at a more competitive level than what casual offers, unfortunately.

Cloud9 just makes me feel sorry for Skadoodle. No offense to his teammates, but he's the only NA player I consider to be up to par with the EU players. When he's in his zone, he outshines even the most famous AWPers like KennyS and Markeloff. I truly think he has the potential to be the best AWP player in the professional scene.

Then again, Fnatic was channeling some 'Silver 2' tactics right there.

i've been a nova 2 for soo long, but i'm not ranking up. i've played consistenly, trying to make the right strats and smart decisions, and i play alright against nova 3s and nova masters. our team wins half the time i play comp. even when i play with silvers and lose, i still perform decently. but i am somehow not even able to rank up to nova 3. CURSE YOU GABEN

 

 

anyone got any tips on ranking up maybe? :/

I takes a lot of hours to rank up, regardless of what rank that is.

Unless you're always carrying your team to victory, expect to be there for at least a few dozen hours of competitive play. :/

Yup.

Although there's not much difference between intermediate and high ranks, unless you find narcissists blaming you for everything that goes wrong as fun.

Best thing you could do is find nice people who play on your skill level and wish to improve, add them as friends, and try to rank up together. You'll save yourself a lot of bull.

Eh, you only need commitment for more serious play, practising and scrimming 'n that. Playing together every now and then doesn't really use that much time, especially if you have a large pool of people to play with.

Missed the news last Wednesday but apparently all the random drug tests came back clean.

 

That'd explain some of the performances.. hue

Unfortunately in the latest update they made it so that you can't hear the enemy team during warmup, halftime and at the end, so you can't get stuff like that from the enemy team - apparently so you can discuss tactics without the enemy team hearing you.

 

Because people apparently do that :p

I love this game sometimes, but hate it most of the time.

 

Two days ago was one of the best moments though, on Mirage I was following 8 terrorist, including the bomber and I was the only person left, I follow them into A and jumped on top of the bomber as he planted, then I knifed him and died. It was the funniest sh*t ever, maybe I should've ninja-defused instead but with that sound effect I doubt it would've worked, stabbing the bomber while surrounded by 8 terrorist was totally worth it though.

Well for starters, how many hours do you have on CS GO?

 

If you seem to be playing continually with no improvement your best bet would be to learn where to peek on maps (while also holding a good angle when defending as CT), along with where to place smokes (this helps ALOT) and I'd also recommend watching games of higher ranked people.

 

And congrats on nova 3!

Aim + Game sense.

 

Strats are meh if you're playing with randoms instead of a team on the regular.

2 days ago I ranked up to MG Elite. Yesterday I fell down to MG 2 because some salty bastards decided to kick me near the end of the match.

 

and I also lost a match because my friends can't go trough a match without getting mad at eachother.

Well, I mostly play with him and a few other guys from class. And, I had an insane amount of luck and won 4 matches in a row so I ranked up quickly. :p

 

EDIT: Heh, played a match with another buddy of mine and got my rank back. :D

Two players left? Lucky you!

 

I don't do ranked, I can't play on T-side, so I only do Casual.

 

Zeusing and knifing people is the most fun.

So the groups for the next major, DreamHack Open Cluj, have been announced.

 

6490125-ClujNapoca_Groups_660.png

 

Anyone going to be watching? Who do you think will get out of the groups.

 

Group A will be Fnatic and either Luminosity or C9. Group B is crazy easy for TSM, maybe FLIPSID3 to go through as well. Group C looks interesting.. I reckon Titan or Liquid could go through at NiP's expense. Group D is pretty straight forward, Envy and Navi.

I feel like sh*t when I play, even though I'm only in casual. I always f*ck up some how and cause the team to lose. There's no way I'm ready to play comp. with my current skill level.

Honestly I'd probably give it to TSM and Mousesports, the latter did really well in the last match they played and they're on their way to being the next underdog team. I expect TSM to be the champions of the tournament, though mostly because I'm a TSM fanboy.

C9 will go out during the group stage again.

But I will happily collect another cbble case.

I haven't really watched too many t2 teams, aside from when they are up against t1 teams tbh.

 

TSM have to be favourites overall right now though. Everything's come together nicely for them at the right time.

 

C9 will go out during the group stage again.

Hater.

Edit: Schneider has left Dignitas due to communication issues. Gotta be a blow for them a week out from the major.
