Does a 144hz monitor make a difference to you guys?

Also is anyone that is using a 1070/1080 experience random stuttering occasionally?

Make sure you're not using the latest Geforce Experience Beta, I've heard that caused stuttering for some people.

144Hz definitely makes quite the difference.

Hopefully it doesn't. I don't care for the other shady sites.

As CSGL doesn't actually convert skins to cash (seems to be Valve's beef), I think it'll be fine. It's no more 'gambling' then opening cases in game.

Although.... Valve were pretty mad about the IBP match fixing

I just hope the skin sale sites like Bitskins are OK, way easier than messing about trading keys to get cheap skins

Gambling websites like double, roulette, wild etc. should be banned, if anything they just manipulate the market and are indeed shady.

CSGL, as toxic as it is for trading, has a massive community, and betting on matches significantly increases interest and helps the popularity of the game in a big way.

OPskins is good for the market IMO, it keeps prices closer to where they should be, people pay actual money for actual skins based on free market pricing.

Steamanalyst is the safest way to cash out keys (unless you're a bitcoin user) so I definitely think it should stick around as well.

If we can keep those three I think the market will be fine, after all this initial panic subsides. If Valve makes it so there is no way to recover actual currency from skins, the market, and likely the game, will go downhill, into oblivion, very quickly.

I don't know if the game will go downhill. The majors now command $1m prize pools, with other tournaments matching or exceeding that figure - and that has nothing to do with skins at all. I'd suggest that viewing figures for the major wouldn't decrease that much, as I don't believe people were watching to get drops *just to gamble them*, or just to cash them out to real money. I think the other tournaments might get fewer viewers, as I expect some people watch purely to keep tabs on their bets (bit like horse racing - would anyone ever watch it if you couldn't bet on it?!). If it started to look serious, like the whole ecosystem was threatened, I suspect Valve would allow people to withdraw credit from their Steam balance, albeit with fees and restrictions (to avoid money laundering). I don't think it'll get that bad - Dota 2 is bigger, and doesn't suffer the same problem (to my knowledge)

I'm stuck on 60Hz because I'm confined to a laptop. What's weird, is that when I bought my laptop last year, I was looking at gaming laptops (Asus ROG was the front runner), and they were all 60Hz. Considering the CPU/GPU specs, and what they are designed for, I can't get my head round the poor spec of refresh rate. Last week, I saw an advert for the latest Asus ROG having a 75Hz screen - it's better, but why the hell don't they put a quality panel on it? Some of these laptops are the better part of £2000, and for that you get a 75Hz screen, what the hell?!

Honestly I think the skins "market" has brought a **** player base with it. I think if it was possible to get rid of selling skins for money it would only benefit the community.

I feel the same way about skins the same way I feel about TF2's hats - it appeals to the lowest common denominator

144hz is probably the biggest hardware advantage i've seen in years for myself. Now when I try to play on 60hz, it's frustrating and I actually get a little dizzy.

144hz monitors are amazing. Whenever I'm asked "Should I go 1440p/60hz or 1080p/144hz?" or even "1440p/144hz or 4k/60hz?" I always recommend the 144hz option because that will make the biggest difference.
