Theres no way a guy like that would come out saying that stuff without any source There's gotta be something that astralis use to get so many advantages over everyone Compare it to fnatic nip sk era's They were good because players were good and synergy was high, now this guys just fucking know everything about their enemy, so fucking fishy how they do perfect rotations and how xyp9x gets half of his frags thorugh smokes

There is actually someting has to be cleared about the case. People even talking about a possible nvidia setting or something, and if it is true, it is the same case as cheating.

Yes. I truely believe at this point that both xyp9x and gla1ve use it NO WAY that pros are randomly speaking about a potential setting abuse from a 2x Major winners out of nowhere

2018-11-23 01:18
man both of them were bad but suddenly gla1ve became a consistent fragger like top 3 fragger in the team and so is xyp9x as he was always good with clutches but these days he is being an absolute beast during clutches Something had to be fishy
2018-11-23 18:38
I believe Xyp is clean but probably does have his settings tweaked cuz that smoke line up was fishy. Glaive has been fragging a lot more lately and I’ve seen some hella fishy but justifiable smoke kills.
2018-11-23 18:48
I too have a lil doubt about xyp but gla1ve doesnt seem legit to me how could someone become from the worst fragger to a consistent (+)ve KDR fragger
2018-11-23 19:05
The addition of magisk might have freed glaive up some. And practicing angles to learn line ups definitely doesn’t hurt. Also you’d be surprised how often you can kill throw smoke blindly. The more you spray the more likely you’re gonna hit one
2018-11-23 19:54
that my friend is not the problem here bcoz Astralis heavily depends on Team strats rather than having a single player go off in particular rounds but If the addition of Magisk did something is that they got a great fragger in the team thats it!!! They still rely on gla1ve's calls mid round so an IGL have a lot on his plate that being said being able to consistently frag within almost every single game they get to play is something I cant cope up with as an IGL they do get a great game once in awhile and not every game thats what I m trying to say here
2018-11-24 06:38
I agree it is strange that he has started to top the leaderboards more often, but not unexplainable. Everyone is going easy over his smoke kills which I agree some have been sus. But if you practice lineups and listen for sound cues and maybe tweak your settings then I understand how you’d improve statistically
2018-11-24 14:33
Yeah maybe u r right and I m just overthinking stuff
2018-11-24 16:19
Their definitely is shaky evidence of cheating but most of their smoke spans are common or at least not random. And I think adding magisk (the most underrated dane for like 2 years) helped glaives personal game as well. Plus practice really helps

We need to see if all the times that they won the gun round, we need to see if they used some smoke play or something to clarify
2018-11-23 00:32
has to be, as we know valve has banned that program that people used to get more colors on csgo fx something, so altering settings anywhere so you can see easier stuff on the game has to be a something else
2018-11-23 00:32
nvidia is not an ilegal program cmon
2018-11-23 00:33
Lmao so pretty much ur saying that its ok to have a ''cheat'' on ur pc if you dont use it?
2018-11-23 00:34
its ok to have a "cheat" if it is authorized by valve
2018-11-23 00:35
It’s a cheat that is legal. So using it now is dirty but technically you’d be doing nothing wrong. It needs banned but everyone might as well use it while they can
2018-11-23 18:49
If it has some settings to help out seeing inside the smokes, then its illegal
2018-11-23 00:37
the setting/configuration makes u see the shadow of player earlier when its dessipating. nvidia settings have always been allowed to configure. It is scummy though if they've known for months and just taken advantage of it instead of reporting it
2018-11-23 01:03
That is exactly the problem. Of course nvidia is not illegal, but seeing the shadow before smoke disappears is literally wallhack. If they have been using it for months instead of reporting and dominating the meta because of it, it would be a huge shame.

The thing about kills through smoke is that everyone notices and remembers them, but nobody remembers all the other occasions where the same player sprayed through smoke "just in case" and didn't get a kill.
2018-11-23 00:34
Nah thats bullshit Go and watch any demo of them, you will see that xyp9x and gla1ve dont really spray through smokes randomly, go and watch

I've seen Glaive do it loads of times. Sometimes nobody is there. Someones someone is there and he misses. And other times he gets a direct kill. The direct kills are the ones people remember. It's like wallbangs. Nobody remembers all the times s1mple shoots walls with the AWP/Scout, but they do remember that disgusting headshot he got through the wall on Nuke.

It's not bullshit, it's a cognitive bias you make decisions based on the little info you have instead of the bigger picture especially to conform to what you tend to believe. For example when you see 3 suspicious moments in a row, and you have a tendency to blame, you may think that the person is cheating. While if you say look at the entire match it would seem completely normal, and the 3 suspicious moments are actually across several games. It's a real problem and has vast literature about it in psychology, so not bullshit en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Availability_heuri.. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias
2018-11-23 02:29
BS. Xyp9x does it all the time, same for wallbangs.

Not cheating directly, but he mentioned using NVIDIA, monitor or other kind of settings which are giving some pros an unfair advantage (like Xyp9x seeing coldzera inside the smoke and killing him at mirage, look at that play).
2018-11-23 01:06
Niko says that? Do he has any prove? People talking about unfair and cheating.. Did anybody see that Fallen almost beat an Astralis player every time there was a smoke on Train as a part of the infight.

2018-11-23 01:24
Also you have to remember that Astralis is the team that probably uses statistics the most in their preparation and during ingame decisions. If you look at coldzera he’s among the best aimers, but he’s kinda predictable. That could be something they have seen him do a lot on films. Honestly I think that’s the explanation. Also the reason for why they have trouble with Fallen because he’s very creative in his movement. They can’t predict him as well.
2018-11-23 01:11
Just watched the play. Usually when it’s 2 vs 1, the CT pushes from two different places. Since Xyp didnt see him in city he could likely just assume that he would go through jungle and just fire the angel in the smoke he had to go. We dont know if he saw him or not, but logic thinking could be the reason.

Yeah, Xyp is probably the best clutcher in the world right now. But the thing is he didn't miss a bullet through that smoke. That being said, NiKo just thought that was a suspicious play, not me. And i'm very happy to see FalleN getting back to his peak.
2018-11-23 01:21
Yes, but we all know how Astralis like to wallbang and fire through smoke. So it can easily just be lucky shots

Yeah, NiKo is one of the most gifted mechanical player, his aim is insane. But i agree Astralis did not reach the top randomly. They have one of the best teamplays i have ever seen, and very intelligent players. They don't rely only on aim to win games. Btw, i'm very happy mibr finally won against them this year! Don't think they are cheating too.

2018-11-23 01:13
Forever respect for niko on that. It's sure thing gla1ve is smokecheating somehow. I guess if we seen % of smoke killls on hltv stats we'd see gla1ve 2x more % than any other pro. Maybe xyp9x would be close to him. Fuck Astralis and their exploited handicap which brought them to the *** lmao
2018-11-23 01:23
To have a clear comparison, we need the % of attempted smoke sprays too. If gla1ves percentage of trys is as % higher as the smoke kills of the others players smoke sprays your argument is busted. Because, Spraying more = higher propabilty of hitting someone. So your statistic had to be like: Kills / Attemps = The stat you want. Otherwise this way would be falsified
2018-11-23 01:33
Check out what gla1ve ragetweeted about smoke kills in 2012 and what he's doing now. Wake up kid 8) You are either blindfaggy fanboy or dellusional nub or maybe using same exploit LEL XD reddit.com/r/VACsucks/comments/5xt45i/gl..

You can debut about xyp9x shoothing through the smoke but i mentioned another interesting thing. Why after killing a guy on ticket box he immediately took his crosshair on cold?
