Faceit Level 2
Canada VeryCryptoGuy 
Is there any point trying to play faceit if my account is level 2? Should I just make another account? I've tried a couple games and so far everyone is either absolute ass tier player, or global elite smurfing with profile full of "-rep hacker".

If you are from EU, try esportal. This is the best MM I've ever experienced. Really friendly mates the 10 matches I played so far - even if you lose they don't go mad. But if you are the kind of guy who blames his mates, you should stay at faceit, as you will get downvoted pretty quickly.

Yo, I don't really care about friendly teammates as I do about teamplay and coordination, MM is pretty terrible for this (lem) and faceit Im stuck in a level 3 :(. Is teamplay good in esportal?

I don't mind grinding, I enjoy playing CS. But I prefer mm to faceit because level 3 is just kinda too... unpredictable I guess? Some players play meta, some don't, it feels too chaotic and unless Im lurking I don't really have much fun :/ I had level 1 from being when I was complete nub and I recently got it to level 3 but its still pretty dire.

Social skills are an often underestimated factor in CS. I know so many guys who claim to be teamplayers, yet start raging at others as soon as they do something in a way they don't agree with. This is just utter stupid an will not help the team at all. Therefore I prefer maturity over skill any time. This way, even losing can be fun.
2019-01-24 11:39
depends whether you play to have fun or play to win imo if you are a team player, its nearly impossible to play on low level faceit without raging. because you will get fucked every round by your team. ppl who dont cover their entry point, run away when enemies push, and when they bait you they never get a good trade. all the social skills in the world arent going to make people stop playing scared and baiting their team. you have to stop playing for the team and bait the baiters yourself, bait them better and harder, to win the game. or get double kill entries every round so they stop playing scared and take some map control. you cant choose between teammates with skill or maturity. you get either both or neither.
2019-01-24 11:51
i would rather play with 4 finns who dont speak at all but they do look at the map and play their positions well rather than playing with 4 ppl who are super nice but cant do any teamwork in the game.

You're never guaranteed to get that to work for you every time. It's much better playing a more dynamic style instead of stacking sites and always do the same plays. It would make you far more predictable both as a team and an individual player. Of course teammates you know is a huge advantage but I won't go as far as saying that it's a shortcut.

And even in semi pro play you need every key component you mentioned, and it has to work.
2019-01-24 12:05
keep in mind, if you play solo queue, 99% of games, you will have ppl on your team who are too stupid to check the map at the start of the round and go with the right number of ppl to the right site. on train you will play with ppl who go 2 B every round even though enemies have been taking A for the past 5 rounds in a row. you will play with ppl who randomly stack 3 ppl B or 4 A on Mirage or D2 without saying anything for no reason. playing with the same ppl in the same positions every game is a huge advantage. it doesnt mean you cant be dynamic. you can react to what opponents are doing. you can also have structure in your reactions. if enemies push a certain spot a lot and your team cant hold it, put an extra player there, or play further back or forward. as long as you do that consistently, it will be something you can build on. its impossible to have any structure playing with random people who you cant trust to understand the fundamentals of the game. with random ppl, you need way more aim skill and way more gamesense to compete at a certain rank, than if you play with ppl you know. due to that lack of structure. thats why i called it a short cut. you dont have to be any better, to play with more structure.

Well if that is the issue I suggest you SHOULDNT solo questions or atleast play Esea(you usually get better teammates there). And if you soloq im guessing you are aware of these circumstances already. You will never see someone without a mic in LV 7+ faceit because you would usually not make it that far without any communication. Of course you have players like D0cc who never uses a mic but then again you have to rely on being a solo carry which most people are not.
2019-01-24 12:11
yeah i never make it to lvl 7. sometimes i get to level 4 and i have fun playing vs lvl 5 or 6 players, but then i get bot team 8 games in a row and back down to lvl 2 or something. its too much grind and not enough fun, i cant motivate myself to keep trying. rather play another fps game that doesnt give you a matchmaking system where you have to rely on 4 random ppl for 40 minutes and the game mechanics dont make it almost impossible to win 1v3 spraydowns.

Why are you not looking for a team? I mean, it's frustrating to loose because of your team, and furthermore the game is so much more enjoyable and interesting when you play with friends/simple mate
2019-01-24 12:15
well looking for a team would mean that i have to play a lot until i meet ppl that i like playing with and then both me and them have to commit to it basically like its a part time job, at least play 16-20 hours every week on the same days etc, i am finishing college + working a full time job soon, so im pretty sure its best if i just dont play cs. then teammates cant annoy me and i cant get mad at them.
2019-01-24 12:18
oh and all my IRL friends are even more bad at cs than me
2019-01-24 12:18
currently im playing warface which is a much more casual shooter and i really like it. games are best of 13 rounds so if you win fast you can be done in 10 minutes. at worst you are stuck with bad teammates for 20 minutes if you try to carry but fail and lose 6-4 or something. and the weapon accuracy on most guns is higher than in cs so i can make a much bigger difference by aiming at people instead of randomly waving my mouse in their general direction. the only disadvantage is that the ladder resets every month so you are basically smurfing the first week of every month. but it gets pretty competitive at higher ranks.

I do play aim / dm, but that's just to improve raw skill. The main reason people enjoy CS is for the competitive aspect. Also, I very highly doubt there is going to be a new CS game any time soon, according to Gabe.

You seem like youre a quite inexperienced player. Just grind FPL 4 hours every day or play mm and reach ge and then come back(that's what I did).
2019-01-23 22:54
I have over 2000 hours, although accumulated over many years. I can play at LEM/Supreme comfortably, so I figured I'd try faceit, instead of grinding GE on terrible Valve servers.

Yeah. What exactly are you struggling with, is it your aim or do you suck retaking for example..
2019-01-23 22:58
I could probably improve everything, like I said I could probably get to GE just by grinding it out, but I want to use faceit instead. The only problem I'm having is that at level 2, the games are extremely bad. I doubt I could level it up without having to solo carry.

I know this answer might suck: just play, play,play and play. There are no shortcuts in csgo to instantly improve. Of course playing with people you know, preferably buy faceit subscription to get better matches and most importantly don't cheat:) You can of course play only on retake servers and aim map but that is very boring.
2019-01-23 23:03
of course there are shortcuts. play with the same 5 man stack every game and play the same position on every map and buy the same utility every round and buy in the same situations every time and push certain positions in certain rounds. get your default down. just doing the same things every time so your team knows what you are going to do is a shortcut that will get you at least 1 rank up and probably more.
2019-01-24 11:58
on MM you can for example play only 1 map like Biome or whatever with a full stack and get global rank when you are definitely not global level.

2019-01-24 00:12
yesterday i've played mm (1/2 times / month) to not lose rank and i've ended up with 4 smfc russians that were playing like silver it was... astonished how bad they played ended with almost 40k just to win a 16-14 mm so bad nowadays everyone can climb to high ranks
2019-01-24 00:17
all those bots in supreme and global are boosted by cheater, or they usually cheat and turned off this game. sometimes you see people in global running around looking at the floor 2m in front of them and when enemy peeks complete panic throwing mouse around missing every bullet. literally silver 1 level.
2019-01-24 11:55
go play Esea, it's much better

at that lvl you only need aim training. any aim DM works. but put alot of time in it, it will benefit your muscle memory huge. and do NOT change your settings. when you are at lvl 8 it's demo watching and streaming other good players (learn the game). but people are different and learns quick or slow. but that is def. what i would've started from lvl 2.

Make an ad on teamfind.com asking for players that "feel the are under ranked" when they ad you on steam ask for their faceit, and check their stats for the past 20 games (you need faceit enhancer chrome plugin) then make sure their average kills are above 20, KD is at least 1.1, and KR is above 0.7. I got from lvl 3 to lvl 8 before I started to get carried, so I stopped there. Or pick your own numbers. The main idea is to just pick people that dont conflict with your style but you need to make sure that you're not picking people that you like but the people that have the potential to win the game for you.
