Online CS
Norway MayhamMiller 
Is online CS any different from LAN CS? I haven't played on LAN against any opponent ever, so I'm simply wondering what's the deal between Online/LAN. I keep hearing how X team can't perform online but on LAN they're good...

you are nobody, never played on lan. So you dont know.
2018-10-18 14:32
? Do I have to be pro to play on lan ? Is it something exclusive in China ?
2018-10-18 15:31

not really, we use to do local small time events for teams at internet cafe's same type of deal, the hardware isn't as close to ideal as what you'd get if you played at a pro event. But you were over 150+ fps, and the communications were key the fact you didn't have to worry about shitty tech issues, people having connection issues.. the prizes weren't big either.. keyboard/mouse or a 144hz monitor.. but it was fun.. better exp then ever trying to do an online event. With online.. you have all those issues to worry about, team mates bailing last minute then needing a sub.. it's a pain in the ass. LAN's are organized to where the team doesn't bail and they have 1 focus in mind... to win.

I bet you didn't have proper server etc in local cafe.

Online is very different from LAN. On LAN you only have like 5 ping where as online games will have somewhere between 30-60 ping. This means that people can use the awp online as they have longer to react as opposed to LAN. But the most important factor is that while playing online the games doesn't matter as much and you are more comfortable playing from home.

its 2018, no one is having bad internet nowadays

that is not bad internet so?
2018-10-18 00:28
everyone has around 30 ping in german servers. i mean the difference between 5 and 30 ping is barely noticeable.

not when you are a pro with very fast reaction time
2018-10-18 00:42
First of all online you have bigger Jitter, loss and choke. Also 5 ms what you see on scoreboard if kinda fake to see real ping you have to turn on net_graph then you will see that ping is 1-5ms(ofc if you have good and well configured server)

Latvia em1^ 
even on pro tournaments they have like 7ms in netgraph
2018-10-18 11:57
Maybe last time I was playin LAN was 1.6 so. But Still you have bery low jitter.

go play in LANs to see for yourself then, it's not that much different

im talking about actual pro lans
2018-10-18 18:17
actual pro lans just involve more pressure, which they can handle
2018-10-18 18:21
United Kingdom galaxzy 
apparently not, pros say otherwise 'Talking about the communication on LAN issue, I guess that is something a lot of new teams, or new players at least, have to adapt to. Is there something you do to kind of practice it, make it better? Yeah, it always tends to happen on LAN instead of online because of the pressure here, the environment is completely different than it is online. To practice that we just have to come to more of these LANs and play - and not get nervous, pretty much. Our comms tend to get so slow because everyone is not talking as much.' source:

#3, I'm also assuming some teams take online games way less seriously because there is not that much on the line compared to LAN tournaments
2018-10-18 00:20
But you must play online leagues to reach LAN tournaments:DD
2018-10-18 14:34
France Dofo 
Indeed. After thinking for a bit post-posting this, I started thinking the biggest change is really in the head of the players and of course people are more comfortable with their personal setups, but in high-tier LAN environment, it shouldn't change that much.

ok so back in 2016, when VP was decent enough on LAN and got semi at major, they played like utter garbage online

same astealis atm...on lan perfekt cs... online shit cs lose to nip and choking sometimes...
2018-10-18 11:46
who cares about online cs when you can win any lan you choose? id also care very little if i was THIS good.

+1 VP would play amazing on lan and beat top 10 teams all the time and then lose to tier4 team online
2018-10-18 11:48
no its not, its absolutely the same. some people just doesnt perform the same on lan since they are weak minded weirdos who cant play under pressure
2018-10-18 00:24
Brazil fkhltv 
oh my god. u must have ice instead of blood speaking like that. "weak minded weirdos". says like a true spoiled bitch. every human feel nervous in front of a crowd. if u didn't maybe u never made something public or u just a troll, either way its pathetic
2018-10-18 00:42
"every human feel nervous in front of a crowd" lmao, its actually the opposite. most tier1 pros love the crowds for a reason, one of the best csgo matches are infront of full arenas. couldnt expect brazilian to understand that though.
2018-10-18 01:18
Brazil fkhltv 
t1 love lan because they deal well with the pressure and other teams sometimes choke or don't full perform thanks to the nervs, and because lan its more significant on symbolic value of the game. u saw the mibr x astralis final on blast? astralis players were all hyped "on the zone" sweating like hell after the game because LAN escalate the emotion. that should be enough to unvalidate ur argument about internet and lan "its absolutely the same". if u ever played any game in front of a crowd u obviously wouldn't say that
2018-10-18 01:28
I don't agree to the fact that everyone feels nervous in front of a crowd, but I do think that some players, especially star players in teams, think they have to "overperform". I'd imagine they could get a little frustrated if you're playing bad and you kind of feel the pressure from the fans etc.
2018-10-18 01:34
looooooooool tell me if anyone on Liquid loves a crowd. Being able to play in front of it without letting it impact you does not amount to liking it. Let me tell you, those betas on Liquid don't even like their families
2018-10-18 12:54
Brazil fkhltv 
only a player of liquid can say that for sure. and i don't like liquid so much, just Taco. i like Taco because a lot of people hates him
2018-10-18 21:17
I meant all of the passive NA bitch kids on Liquid. TACO doesn't count. TACO is alpha as fuck. EliGE NAF nitr0 and Twistzz are all twink boys though

yes its more consistent and its not peeker's advantage on lan

In 1.6 the interp was a big difference, don't know if has that much impact now
2018-10-18 01:32
You don't have the LAG excuse on lan. And your shitty rank doesn't guarantee you a win on LAN.
2018-10-18 04:26
Everyone who said there is no difference probably have never attended to good LAN parties. On lan you dont have any Loss, Choke, big Jitter and ping but you have to configure server on LINUX not windows.

what does linux/windows have to do with it? :S The majority of online servers are on linux too
2018-10-18 11:45
I remember that Linux version(CS 1.6) server could run 1000 tickrate!! While on windows was max 100 and was very unstable. Linux provide many tools for administrators etc(more felxible), also operations on files are faster on linux.
2018-10-18 11:55
Nothing difference in game but the atmospher effectts you. You cant be relax like you are at home

Lower ping, much more pressure which affects a lot of people differently.
2018-10-18 11:46
on lan u hear smoooya screaaaaaam wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii axaxaxaxaxaxa
2018-10-18 12:05
You can hold angles on LAN. Online you have to abuse peekers advantage. Other differences are mental. If soundproofing isn't done right players can do some shady shit on LAN.
2018-10-18 14:39
The game is more faster, dynamic... So much better !

I think there is a difference especially in front of a huge crowd.

There's no peekers advantage on lan, generally feels smoother to play when everyone are connected to the same internet. Also is a completely different atmosphere which makes some people play better and others worse. Also there's the advantage of being able to see your teammates POV by just looking right or left.

if you are talking about pure gameplay you just can play with bots in 128 tick and play a normal faceit game. you can notice the difference.

is huge difference. I suck online because when I started play cs we could play it only offline at local gaming lounges which was great period.
2018-10-19 02:02
the difference its only in people heads , on lan you can crumble more easily because its a different pressure but the game its exactly the same , people that comment on ping beeing relevant 5 compared to 25-30 are idiots. also on lan its more fun because obviously you have your teammates 1m away so you can phiscally interact with them , see their faces , etc. the feeling is better when you play on lan as a team
2018-10-19 02:03
90% online games is fixed shitshow
