It's natural response to react to movement, however when it's change in color then I find myself having to consciously focus on screen to catch the exact moment. Then I miss a click and I'm late not because my reaction is bad, but because it's not natural to me to react to change to color. Then it pulls out average between actual reaction times and times when I didn't actually react properly due to lack of focus.
Monitor refresh rate, input delay, response time alone can easily add up to over 10ms.
For example, I've 60hz monitor, 8ms gtg, idk what input delay, I'd assume at least 10ms or something. That'd make up 34ms.
i dont go for prefire on reaction time test, that defeats the purpose of the test.
getting under 200ms reaction time becomes a lot easier if you relax and visualize what is going to happen, then your hand will react automatically when it happens, your brain doesnt need to process anything. its easier to get under 200 in game in practiced situations than cold on some online test.
i guess so, but i notice i'm way much faster during a competitive match, like flicking into people with awp or rifles
sometimes i outaim and headshot people with ak before they shoot me with awp
that must be under 250ms
when i played cod i consistently aimed and clicked at ppl in 200ms, its a really big advantage in that game if you have fast reaction time, in csgo its still very useful but accuracy is way more important.
its more important to react consistently within a window of a couple ms than to try to get the fastest time possible. in csgo if you keep your crosshair steady, and someone strafes through, you only have a window of a few frames to click their head.
man my ping is so unstable that sometimes i peek a guy, scope with awp, wait for awp to become accurate, click on him, see awp scope out, 200-300ms later enemy strafes and headshots me and i see a bullet hole from awp behind him in the wall.
its basically impossible to play the game some days.
on my screen, i shoot the first guy, bullet goes right through him, i scope in again, wait, shoot the second guy, awp scopes out, i die.
in gotv demo i dont even shoot the 2nd bullet and the 1st didnt register.
this is with generally 35-60 ping on mm. it looks like i have 250 ping instead of 50. but net graph usually says 35-60. sometimes 70-80 and then it gets really bad. no packet loss.
its not much better on faceit unless i play NL server and its a good day.
i remember one game i got 25 ping on NL server and i could actually jiggle peek awpers. that was an easy game. it was on cobble, i think i didnt die to awp once that T side.
i remember the first time i played on faceit with 128tick and 50ping average, it felt like heaven rofl
everything was so smooth and people thought i was walling or something :D
imagine playing on good servers with 0 ping
