I haven't played the game yet, but for you who have played 1.6 for years and staying up long nights to watch events such as ESWC, WCG and IEM etc... Do you feel the same about CS:GO when you're playing it or watching it ? I miss those feelings for a game and want to get it back.. But clearly it aint gonna be 1.6...
let me tell how does it work:
teamX vs teamY, watching it for 5 minutes max and leave, look at the score some time later
or, teamX vs NiP, the whole match lasts for 5min with a 16 0 score
Overall, ive never watched a match for longer than 5 minutes
I feel like if they stopped focusing on the niceness of the game it would be good. Such as some maps are so claustrophobic while scrimming them you bump into each other so much, and I just feel like im being held back. I cant even watch matches they are so cluster fvcked!
Why would you ask this on HLTV.org? You will obviously get almost only bad answer and you probably know that. The most people on here didn't even play the game yet. For me the game is fun and I have been playing Cs 1.6 for the last 6 years.
Compared to other games Cs 1.6 has never been 'a game to watch'. It's way better to play the game itself than watching it. Same for CS:GO. If you get used to the game slowly you'll find it better.
There are a lot of events coming up very soon like ESWC, Dreamhack and others so there is a lot of competition. There are more competitive top teams than in the past 2 years in 1.6. The game still need some fixes and patches get released every few weeks to improve the game.
The game is different. It's a lot faster than 1.6 and you'll need a few weeks to get used to it.
You can't compare it with 1.6 nor Source but people tend to do it. It's different but still Counter-Strike. You can't compare it to CoD. Everyone who says that has obviously never played CoD before.
It's not a bad game. I like it since it's different. I got tired of playing the same game for years and watching the same teams for years. Now there is a lot of competition what I find really interesting.
CS:GO just sucks.. I was open-minded, I even bought this game and played it like 100h. My resume: it's no fun to play and it's also no fun to watch. Fact is, we have exchanged a good game against a bad one. But we couldn't prevent it.
In 1.6 you control your spraying by moving your xhair and standing still.
In CS:GO you keep your xhair still, and you control your spraying by moving your character.
Whoever invented this type of aiming is a fucking moron. Same goes for movement, it was better when they realeased the game, but now they took everything away and you cant do any type of jumps to get away from fire. So its basically run/spray and there is no skill ceiling at all.
However, im optimistic they will fix it, if they dont its pretty clear to me that they fucked the game by purpose cause they got annoyed to community.
Yes, its harder to master it , cause its random. There are days you basically hit everything, and then suddenly nothing hits, bullets just "disappear", and people running backwards and jumping are doing -3 sprays at their first day with the game.
Anyways AWP is fine ( fastzooming removed )
Pistols are fine ( p250 slightly op but not game breaking )
The biggest thing is movement , and i really cant find answer why they dont fix it since i havent seen an single person saying it would be a bad thing to make it similar to 1.6 or atleast similar to CSS.
Does anyone else think that watching demos on CS:GO is like pulling teeth? I feel like the 1.6 demo player was very simple and easy to navigate. the CSGO one is annoying since when you type "demoui" in and try and press esc to go back ingame, it stays on top of everything and you can't control where you're looking.... and it's just hard if you want to rewind just a bit, go back to a certain point, etc. it's just complicated when it doesn't have to be.
tl;dr, CS:GO Demo player needs some serious work. Also It would be cool if someone stepped up and created a coL Demo player-type thing that is compatible with CS:GO :)
