This game came out so quietly! Right at the height of summer vacations and such... I picked it up yesterday and I'm in love thumb.gif

Maxed settings on one GTX 470, fully playable. The graphics are disappointing but whatcha gonna do.

I get 300+ constantly all the time. Never ever dips below 300 even in large scale firefights with everything at max biggrin.gif

Anyways I am no newb to the CS scene. I played CSS exclusively for a year or 2 like 4-5 years ago and even participated in TWL and CAL but my team sucked so we got nowhere (we did however get top 50 in BF2 TWL which I was super proud of lol). I am a little rusty but getting better faster since I am no newb. But I have forgotten some tricks and tips that I used to know. I know the holy grail of tips which is the strafe-stop-shoot-repeat technique. But can any fresh good CSGO players give me some advanced tips on accuracy andshooting? I know the AK in this game does well only in 2 burst instead of 3 and the M4 performs best at 3 round burst instead of 4. Some examples:

1. when running and I see an enemy should I stop immediately and shoot for the head? Or immediately strafe and aim for the head?

2. I have seen ALOT of players use the crouch-shoot style. I remember back in CSS i was told by numerous people that it was a bad technique and a bad habit to do in any range and situation except sometimes when you are defending, and even then it was rare when you did. Does that still hold water? Are the people who use that style newbs to the CS series? Or is the accuracy boost when crouching and the movement penalty greater now so it made it a good tactic to use?

Any other advanced tips are mucho appreciated.

Um, the dynamics of public versus private play vary completely. In fact, if you plan on playing competitively with a team, I would suggest not playing on public servers at all. The questions you ask don't really have answers.

Some people are amazing when running and shooting somehow, and others can only shoot well while strafing. Others can't do jack with a hand gun and others can.

And basically, the game is about angles, however much less so in comparison to 1.6. Compared to Source though, the mechanics are better but only somewhat so.

I'll upload some demos for you if you'd like.

http://play.esea.net/teams/60449

Currently playing for bushido! ESEA-Open 9-1 record. Unfortunately this season only has Open and Invite. It's hard to explain when to do what, as you need to take every situation into consideration. It depends a lot on the angles you're peeking at/from.

One thing I've noticed a lot, is that players don't strafe back after they've strafed to one side. So they you're about to peek a angle and you're strafing left to peek it. When strafing left, you'll want to tap right strafe to quickly stop, allowing 0 velocity accuracy practically instantly.

1 - Ideally you should strafe and counter-strafe. What is that you ask? Well it's a well known fact that your accuracy is reduced when you move. But you are also easier to hit if you are stood still...so what can you do to stop this? Let me give an example -

You strafe to the left then when you want to shoot you hold right strafe (which when holding both will stop you on the spot) and shoot, then move and repeat, once you get the hang of it it appears as though you never actually stop but you keep the accuracy as though you were stopped. This was a huge benefit in 1.6, in CS:GO I haven't really practiced the idea (some say that it takes a split second for your accuracy to reset when you stop) so it might not even work?

EDIT - I didn't see drmasteR posted about this above me.

2 - I hardly ever crouch in CS, I often see people hiding round corners crouching, you see their body before they see you (the elbows and knees stick out) so you can almost always get the jump on them. Accuracy is increased while crouching, but stood still isn't far behind and you are more mobile when you aren't crouched. You may be a smaller target to hit but the chance you will be headshotted is increased as your head will be a large part of the target they're trying to hit.

Yea ok cool thanks for the info guys. And I will def look into ESEA. I have been playing alot of TDM right now to shake the rustiness off and then I will start pubbing for a short while. Just long enough to get a nice ego boost and enjoy the game smile.gif and then check out ESEA and watch my ego hit rock bottom for a while lmao. But it's all good. I learned a very long time ago with my first FPS online game (BFV) that if you want to get better at a faster rate and a higher grade play in servers with extremely talented people.

Btw I meant strafe-->counter-strafe--->shoot instead of strafe and stop. I learned that trick in CSS and to me it was the holy grail of all tips. I sucked SO bad before that and couldn't seem to get any better until I read that trick. Since then I always scour the internet for advanced tips on FPS games even if Im already good.

Bringing back this thread because I've been enjoying the game. However it isn't working. I have a black screen freeze up every few minutes and it requires a complete computer reboot. So far no one knows a fix to this aside from turn off multi core rendering. Did that, fixed it. Now it's happening again. Anyone?

AMD FX CPU's seem to run into tons of issues with the game. Is your motherboard BIOS up to date? This fixes most of the issues.

Yeah, unfortunately a lot of AMD Bulldozer CPUs have BSOD issues while playing certain games such as CS:GO and Borderlands 2. Updating the motherboard BIOS fixes a lot of crashing and performance issues.
