Why do you play csgo?

Do you play for fun or is there a certain goal you wanna reach? I personally don't take it that serious anymore, just have a nice time with friends.

tbh i played csgo during the winter break cuz no matches to watch. Usually i play other games/do other things and just watch and follow the pro scene
2019-01-23 12:23
I tend to play for fun. Ranks don't mean that much to me.
2019-01-23 12:23
+1 i used to care a lot about it, but I realized that there's no point behind trying hard and getting triggered by russians and trolls so i'm just playing for fun.
2019-01-23 12:25
Honestly? Drop a few ranks and have fun :)
2019-01-23 12:27
I play because I want to escape reality, just like everybody else pal
2019-01-23 12:24
I just wanna point out that escaping reality is not exclusive to CSGO players only. People do a lot of different things to escape their problems

For fun. I used to care a bit when I was first getting into it but after I realized that with my internet connection (can only play at midnight/early morning) it's just a waste of time.

The connection itself is alright. It's the fact that I'm forced to use Wi-Fi shared between five people that causes the issues because our home owner doesn't allow us to drill holes for Ethernet ports. The speeds could be better but they're bad because of where I live. Will be getting fiber in a few months.

For price=performance Australia is the worst in internet out of all the first world countries by far without any question. So of course we complain. We pay too much for slow and unstable internet. I do live in a city that has the worst internet out of all the Australian big cities, but this applies to the rest of the population too.

what's the average ping you guys play ?

I live in Perth. Look it up on google maps. I get 70-90 ping. Reason why is that I live on the completely other side of the country as most Australians, which just so happens to be where all the CS:GO servers are. I don't know what other Aussies get, I live in an isolated city so asking me is not the best idea.

I live as far away to most Aussies and the CSGO servers as Sao Paulo is to the Falkland Islands, for measure. So you can see why I don't really bother to care about CS:GO when the internet is so bad AND I live far away from the servers.

Lul, yeah, pretty distant from the servers. I live in Rio, but not in capital, i live in a inland place, actually is a farm, but still play with 5 ping, 10 gb internet, can't imagine playing with more than 30 ping, must be so bad, it's probably like, you killed the enemy and he dies after 0.5 / 1 sec.
2019-01-23 13:57
Lul you realize 30ms/ping is 30 milliseconds? I had 1-5ms all the time in my old house, now i have 30ish depending on what server and its not noticable. When ping is higher then 100-200 or above, it gets really delayed.

At least when i see the stream of the american players playing FPL that plays with 30+ and 50+ ping i can see really clear the difference.. i can see the delay after the kill.

because it is an amazing game with kind and smart community
2019-01-23 12:34
I think for most people its just a thing they once in a while go back to becasue they're somewhat good at CS and sometimes to feel better all you need is a little self-affirmation (getting a high score/some good performance index). I had played CS to escape problems, then to feel better about myself (because I couldnt do anything more productive for that), now I launch it like once in 5 months to explain different complicated mechanics and features of the game to some of my friends. But Im a proffessional bettor, I analyze matches, watch a lot of YT content about the game so I know everything about CS, the game's core bores me. I mean I definitely can imagine playing CS for fun with friends, I just like developing myself IRL more – started drawing and exercising a couple of months ago and feel a lot better than if I would've spent this time on videogames.

Obviously i play for fun, but i also play to get to GE.
2019-01-23 12:41
because it's the only decent fps with a developed competitive scene
2019-01-23 12:41
rainbow6 is kinda like that smaller ofc but stable in terms of playerbase and new content
2019-01-23 12:55
im not paying 15e for a game that is inferior to cs quake and insurgency on every level
2019-01-23 12:59
Rainbow 6 kinda sucks in competive because all those effects

I play CS because it takes rpughly 35-60 minutes a game which is quite nice. The game exist of both mechanics skill and intelligence as well as communications and team play... sadly is that i got bad eye sight (astigmathic) and poor mechanical skill so i am stuckit playing with retards who run around and fortet about all the finer points of the game.
2019-01-23 13:16
was tryharding before same as you today 6k Hours
2019-01-23 13:17
now it's the pug after work, you know what i mean
2019-01-23 13:18
i dont enjoy it like in the first couple thousands hours, but still the best game out there imo.
2019-01-23 13:19
I cant play for fun i must tryhard to enjoy this game otherwise i wouldmt play

because it's the a game where I feel that my time spent in it actually goes towards something. Warowl said it best "your character doesn't get better, YOU get better" and I like that side of CS. Aswell as the gunplay and the community for the most part ;)

Have you tried Escape From Tarkov? Not really the same genre of game, more than it is FPS, but it has both "soft skills" (In-game character development) but that doesn't meen as much as the raw skill improvement you get as a gamer/player.

To me it is the best game in the world but it is still in Beta and the community is as Toxic as PUBG was a year ago. It is a special kind of game so I get it if it isn't for everyone. Before you try it out check out some streams about it and ask questions about it. I can send you some links/recs in DM if you want. Or you can wait indefinitly until I start streaming again.

I play because I've grown up playing CS. I started playing when I was about 9 and I turn 25 in 8 days... It's good to kill time and the competitive side to it is still there, although the trolls and kids massively outweigh the fun aspect... MM and Faceit is terrible, whereas I find ESEA much more enjoyable. I often solo queue though which probably doesn't help.
