For example; I've played GO since 2012, I only have 1200 hours played over 3 years. Good friends of mine are approaching 4k hours. Some of those friends have been playing CS since ~2000, so if you break down the math = you get 4k / 3 years = 1,333 hours a year * 15 = 20,000 hours.

That's a rough estimate, and an extreme case assuming all variables are correct and consistent, very few people have that many hours in game experience (even pros).

But apply what Malcolm Gladwell says about "mastering" a talent (Outliers, by Malcolm Gladwell), and there are handfuls of players who have doubled the amount of working hours it takes to "master" something. You cannot say this about any other 'current' video game lol.

Noted! Looks like I gotta practice more gunner2.gif

Yeah, sometimes I have teammates who rush alone, get killed 30 seconds in and doesn't use frags and when I'm the last person alive on the team they will use the mic and say things like "get the bomb idiot". When it is obvious that the enemy is guarding it. lol.

I see, I think I matched before with a group of smurfs they destroyed us 16-3. lol. Pretty much headshot everything at the speed of light. sniper.gif

I have a question guys, on dust 2. Let's say you have an AK-47, smoked a long on t spawn. Someone with a P90 waiting for you at the blue container. How do you kill him? Try getting a headshot then continue it with a spray while standing still or strafe-tap/burst-strafe-tap/burst?

Also I wonder how skilled people are on higher ranks like DMG, like headshotting everything from goose to pit? lol. arrowheadsmiley.png

Cases are such a ripoff...leave them to the pro players who get donations every day (it's like 1 case every 2 donations...) for us mortals, cases are only a waste of money. mad.gif Betting might be the best way to earn something, but you have to do a lot of research before you make your pick tongue.gif

Do a jiggle peek to determine where he is, flash yourself in then spray that bad guy down thumb.gif
I seem to have hit a wall at MG2, finding it really difficult to rank up. I just can't seem to be able to play consistently, some games I'm top fragger or second, others I'm at the bottom of the scoreboard.

I'm exactly in the same condition. MG2, one game i'm playing like a global, the other game like a silver 1. What the hell?? frown.gif Sometimes i'm so confident with my aim that I oneshot everyone and also get incredible flick shots - entry frags - wallbang headshots, other times I cant hit an enemy with 30 bullets sprays. :/

$60 would have easily gotten you a dragon king from the market, that is unless you want FN or a Stattrak.

If that's the case you'd have to wait a few more weeks.

To the more experienced players in this thread, how was ranking up from MG>DMG for you? Did you find it relatively quick and painless? I feel that I've got a good handle on the best spots for both offensive and defensive pop flashes/smokes/nades and good positions to hold for site defense as CT, but more often then not I'm the bottom fragger on my team.
I know one of my weaknesses is rotating intelligently, and I'm working on it, and I'd say my shooting and spray control is about average. While I'm very wary of blaming my lack of success on anything other than myself, I do find it extremely frustrating that out of every three matches I'll get hit with massive lag spikes in at least one, making me pretty much useless to my team for about a quarter of the match.
Any tips?

Link one of your MM matches. I can analyze it. Do note, I won't sugar coat everything. I will give you a raw version of what you're doing wrong, and what needs to be improved.

That would be amazing, would you prefer a demo or for me to record a match with dxtory?
