I would say at this point is probably the best value for money game have ever bought.

Interesting part, is that's exactly how CS is played. CS isn't your traditional run and gun FPS game. It's a tactical shooter, so playing intelligently with good accuracy is exactly the way to win!

For battlefield, premium is optional too, but when an expansion comes out you won't be able to play with your friends for a couple of weeks because you don't have that expansion or the premium service. The only thing even remotely close to premium in CSGO is the operations that come out, but those are only $3-$6 and you can still join your friends and play with them without purchasing it.

Plus, if you sell the operation cases that come out, you end up actually making money. tongue.gif

Just wondering as we rarely play against anyone else, rather just play against each other for a laugh, but it would be nice if we could get some drops while doing so.

On another note, really enjoyed watching EMS One, didn't get a drop, but it was really entertaining with some super close matches. sNax's move against NiP that's posted further up just topped it off.

I believe you do. Drops are timed, and has very little to do with if you're on a Valve Official server. I play community Deathmatches and get drops!

I've played CS since the beginning. Same for BF. I still play both because I still enjoy both. Even with the issues BF4 has had I have had a blast with it. "Netcode" was never Battlefield's strong suit to begin with but I haven't had any gamebreaking issues since the 1st 3 weeks or so after release. Just saying, theres no reason people can't enjoy playing both. I know I do. And really they don't even deserve a comparison. The only similarity is they both have weapons.

Play with the same people more often so you are playing the same spot more often. I find myself helping a team most when I am playing in spots like long A or B site and focusing on rotating quickly. Being able to get to a site quick enough to help your team is highly underrated.

Every time I see a CT rotate through T spawn on dust 2 I swear I could rage flip my desk.

"They are pushing B"


30 seconds later dude from long A shows up and now has to try to clutch vs 2+ after he rotates too slow. I get that part of this is the rest of his team going in too quick (I always ask them to wait) but man it makes me mad.

ALSO: I guess it is impossible to trade my flip knife safari battle scarred for any gut knife....

BF3/BF4 are not the "war/firefight sim" I wish they were. They are beautiful graphically, and have great campaigns, but unfortunately the multiplayer (the heart of any real FPS) is gimmicky as hell. And I totally see what you are saying about the death/reg comparison. In CS, they mechanics of guns are solid, they are the foundation of the game and totally fundamental. In BF4, it seems like something that is often patched / changed. This brings up tons of problems in multiplayer and totally destroys any form of competitive play.

As far the money thing goes -- I have over $100 spent, but I realize now, that is "steam money" and afik there is no real way to check how much money you spend from your debit card per game. I'm sure you can lookup all the purchases from the account -- but that wouldn't help me since I've bought ~20 games off my debit card as well.

After watching Katowice, I have a strong feeling that CS is the future of esports. LoL, SC2, and Dota2 (not really though) come in as close competition, but there is just so much to be done with CS. The presentation is truly amazing, and the people working for the events are overqualified. My example of this is the older american caster, I think his name is Scoots? But when I first starting watching CS competitions I was watching ESL and thought; who is this old guy? I did research on him and here's the deal -- He was an ex CS player, don't know if he was pro/competitive or not, but he's a vet. He also was a regional event manager for Coca-Cola in the US... wait, WHAT!?! This guy is not only a trained / enterprise event manager, he's a CS player as well. I think that totally changes the traditional outlook of these PC nerds at events. They got some great talent, and have been putting on AMAZING events. I am very excited to see what more 2014 will bring ^^

As much as I love CS, I think it will remain behind Dota 2 in term of coverage.
Still CS is the king of competitive FPS and Dota 2 the king of mobas imo.

I dont know if you guys play Dota 2 but the competitive aspect is truly well implemented in the game.
The tournament tickets to download replays or watch live, the caster channels for specific games, the items specific to given tournaments...
Valve is really pushing their games to a next level!

Steam was down earlier, so they are probably having server issues at the moment.
