AWPer Res
Other ausserkontrolle 
LONG: Many AWPer's play 4:3, most notably 1024x768, or less commonly 1280x960, and many of these AWPers use stretched for the fact that it makes the enemies fatter and easier to see. That is all understandable, however there are no notable AWPers (other than ChrisJ) that use 1280x1024, and I do not understand why. 1280x1024 shows the picture in a very crisp manner due to it's high resolution (x1024), and stretches much better but still keeps the image clear. Is there something with the other resolutions that might change AWP xhair thickness like in older games? Or does it make it easier to hit shots? I personally feel comfortable on 1280x1024, however I am wondering if there are any serious reasons why there are not many professionals playing 1280x1024, which I should review. E.G. AWPers that play 1024x768: kennyS, Dev1ce, oskar, FalleN, Draken, Hen1, Cajunb, etc. AWPers that play 1280x1024: ChrisJ, ? TLDR: Why don't AWPer's play 1280x1024 compared to, say, 1024x768? Is there something with the other resolutions that might change AWP xhair thickness like in older games? Or does it make it easier to hit shots? I would like to know :]

most awpers are playing bb not stretched
2018-01-13 11:45
ST: oskar, FalleN, Nifty, Cajunb, ChrisJ BB: Dev1ce, kennyS, Draken, hen1 As time goes on the numbers for ST vs BB are getting more even.

cajunb plays bb and why didnt mention Guardian, skadoodle, pasha/snax, jw etc. there are definitly more awpers, playing bb
2018-01-13 12:00
Cajunb switched to 1280x960 ST for awhile, probably changed back. Pasha is changing all the time, played 16:9 for ages. Guardian + Snax + Skadoodle yeah. could probably find more ST AWPers, Coldzera, Tarik, NiKo etc. but CBF You understand my point anyway.

1280x1024 is not 4:3, imo the game is shit as fuck on that res as it's a bit faster than 4:3 and it stutters. the game moves better on any other res. i also play 1280x960 and i tried every res in game but i only enjoyed 800,1024,1280 and 1280x8xx something (16:10)

he will prove in a couple rounds this major hes going to be main awper for the event. and besides dupreeh is a better rifler thandev1ce makes it even more clear.

LOL you just proved that you don't know anything about Astralis. "Earlier today Astralis confirmed Nicolai "device" Reedtz, the team's former AWPer" THE TEAM'S FORMER AWPER. Use your eyes
2018-01-15 22:58
Learn to read wtf he wrote "Until recently, he was :]" and he is right.

Awpers dont play stretched cuz it makes things go faster and therefore harder to hit, they play BB generally. Only awper i know for sure uses stretched is m0e, and I'll let u judge for urself if u wanna consider him an awper. Also Res doesnt really matter and is probs the least important part of your settings when compared to smth like mouse sensitivity
2018-01-13 12:13
ST: oskar, FalleN, Nifty, ChrisJ, Tarik, coldzera, NiKo, etc. :]

If u aren't able to understand that sentence nothing I can do for u
2018-01-14 09:43
How can you tell they don't play stretched if they're all stretched on stream?
2018-01-14 09:47
France TheFaren 
Because if that's the case it says, stretched for stream, and 1024x768 bb or 1024x768 stretched
2018-01-14 10:11

why play 1280x1024 when you can play 1350x1080 instead?
2018-01-13 12:14
can force 75hz @ 1280x1024
2018-01-13 12:33
1440x1080 better
2018-01-15 22:59
Uruguay RogR5 
I play 800x600 and I'm the awper, no problems, u should also try 1440x1080 clear image and good stretching

u can use cl_crosshair_sniper_width to adapt your sniper crosshair
2018-01-14 09:50
1920x1080 now that I have a new comp and it feels so much more accurate than old 720p res
2018-01-14 09:57
Well Ive never really played 1280x1024 but i have found awping and pistols really good on it, but i cannot rifle for shit on that res. My only guess is for them to stay diverse
2018-01-14 10:09
I play 4:3 1024x768 and sometimes 800x600 I think these are the best res for awp

Thing is: high horizontal resolution make is more distractful (is that even a word) and harder to flick, at the same time that, as you said, makes the models widers which leads to > easier to hit. Now for the bb x st I don't really have a say on this. I'm an awper myself and I can tell that it makes my life easier, I feel like I optimize my screen space this way, don't have any deep thoughts on this matter tho.
2018-01-16 07:16
cold played on 1280x1024, dunno if he is back on x960
2018-01-16 23:12
"many of these AWPers use stretched" but more AWPers use black bars Black Bars: kennyS, device, guardian, JW, twist, Snax, Ska, jdm64, HEN1, cajunb, allu/mixwell (both use bb) stretched: FalleN, oskar, SIXER, draken, s1mple
2018-01-16 23:17
s1mple plays bb edit: apparently not anymore
2018-01-16 23:22
100% Correct
