Aug destroying cs?
Brazil mibrbestteam 
Was this money update the worst thing Valve ever did? Is cs becoming boring because of AUG?

It's not a permanent change, Valve just want to shake up the meta and collect some data to balance it out
2019-02-16 14:44
Got it. A new upgrade is needed, perhaps in the power of weapons or in their values
2019-02-16 14:45
It's a sad thing Valve to do this update on the eve of the major

Probably, but they also need data from t1 events to cater both casuals and pros
2019-02-16 14:48
You moron the AUG price reduction happened 4 months before the major - nowhere near the start of the major.
2019-02-16 14:50
It happened on the holiday eve of the players, they had not competed for two months, so that's practically on the major's eve. They could have done the upgrade after the major to be able to collect the feedback
2019-02-16 14:57
No you're wrong again, the 2018 player break started from end of July to the end of August 2018 for 1 month. The AUG price reduction happened on the 9th October 2018 . Get your facts straight.
2019-02-16 15:06
You are mistaken.; Tell me how many tier1 championships with AUG and new update money occurred.
2019-02-16 22:07
Why the fuck are you moving the goalposts when I corrected you saying incorrectly that the "AUG price reduction happened on the eve of the major"?
2019-02-16 22:38
The update was made on the eve of the holidays, so there were no tier1 championships to really have feedback. This signified that the update was poorly planned and made on the eve of the major. The major will be the guinea pig of this update
2019-02-16 22:47
Holy fuck you're a dumb kid. There already was MULTIPLE tier 1 LANs with the AUG price reduction update which all took place before the current major: Epicenter Moscow 2018 October 23rd-28th, BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2018 November 2-3rd IEM chicago 2018, November 6th to 11th. ECS Season 6 Finals Nov 22nd - Nov 25th 2018 BLAST Pro Series Lisbon Dec 14th - Dec 15th 2018 hltv.org/events/3701/blast-pro-series-co.. hltv.org/events/3954/iem-chicago-2018 hltv.org/events/3985/epicenter-2018 hltv.org/events/3701/blast-pro-series-co.. hltv.org/events/4083/ecs-season-6-finals hltv.org/events/4205/blast-pro-series-li..
2019-02-16 22:57
Pro series lisbon december 14-15 2018 and Esl pro leagueseason 8 Finals Dec 4th - Dec 9th 2018 all had tier 1 teams like astralis and faze, navi, liquid attend and used the $3150 aug. hltv.org/events/4205/blast-pro-series-li.. hltv.org/events/3376/esl-pro-league-seas.. This aug update already got feedback from 2 tier 1 championships before the major so this major definitely is not a guinea pig of the aug change.
2019-02-16 23:39
yes, valve literally just wanted players to try scoped rifles then they’ll balance them and people will still use them. gateway drug

Not really, it brings some variety. We need more weapons and some new maps to keep it interesting

But everyone using aug on ct side now, How is this variety?
2019-02-16 14:51
Nobody used it before though. Valve will patch it and there will be a better balance between m4 and aug.

Well they should have done it earlier because its the fucking major eve
2019-02-16 14:59
this is valve. We always had random updates pre major. They added 2 new maps out of nowhere or had overpowered pistols in plenty of them.

No, we really don't. This game stood the test of time and is going strong after nearly 20 years. Always with the same 3 rifles = m4, ak, awp. You want some variety go play fortnite. This isn't for you.

2019-02-16 15:03
Not that I like fortnite or play it but it has variety in weapons and raise 100 mil a year for prize money >>>>> csgo's prize money.

That 100 mil in prize money has done absolute dick for Fortnite's comp scene so I'm not sure what your point is. Pro Fortnite is a joke. As is pro BR in general.

2019-02-18 22:01
Yeah but the point that variety in weapons is bs is more BS. Variety in weapons expands the range of potential plays which is good for the audience. BR are not made for competitive so yeah i agree with you.

what happend was VALVE gave ct's a chance vs. terrorist AK47 which is onetap. come on. you cannot deny that youve been killed with m4 vs ak even tho u started out with that HS shot. aug evening the score out....
2019-02-16 14:47
Valve could solve this by giving more power to the m4a1
2019-02-16 14:48

Sweden frozze90 
meh. m4 supposed to be abit weaker. ak is stronk. that is just to deal with. aug (with the scope) evens shit out. why does m4 automaticly have to be the favoured gun of ct?
2019-02-16 14:49
The price of the ak 47 is very cheap compared his power, so it would be fair that the m4a1 could also kill with only 1 shot. Aug has a crosshair that helps any silver to be good at CS. The result is that the competitive level will decline, and people who are not so good will start playing at the same level as s1mple and coldzera

AK is stronger and cheaper for a reason. CTs are just holding angles knowing where Ts are coming from. Much easier than peeking a place where an unknown located CT is waiting for you. CTs already have a huge advantage in the game concept, the one tap potential and volatile economy are the way balance the equation for the Ts.
2019-02-16 15:25
Aug kills with 1 shot + noob chrosshair

just noticed u wrote m1, sorry. yeah maybe. atleast give it 30clip
2019-02-16 14:49
I always shake my head when i see a comment like that rofl, even with m4 not being 1 shot in the head, ct site won the most % of rounds in pro and probably also casual matches. Where is the reason to buff ct site even more. Aug is just an boring broken cod gun, just give m4 1 shot hs at close range, atleast m4 is not some dumb budget auto sniper which 3 shot kills on body

Sweden frozze90 
you can shake your head all you want, but this is my opionion. tho I can agree with upper commemnts, about valve evening out m14a-s abit more. as of now it is poorly used. maybe not boost dmg on m4, but boost clip on m1 and give ct's the upperhand of silence instead of dmg
2019-02-16 14:52
So it's fun for you watching some pro player sitting behind fork zoomed in with an aug waiting for the t's running out of main and 3 shot 2-3 of them on body ? Or even getting a 4th kills because he still lands a lucky headshot with his last bullet

Sweden frozze90 
did u even read the comment you wrote a response to ? It was basicly entierly about valve should boost the m1 (the one with silencer) so it will be more used than the aug.
2019-02-16 14:59
#31
 | 
Sweden frozze90 
I have never said I agree like watching it, tho it seems like valve boosted the aug to even things out. But as i said, I rather see the m4a1-s with a bigger clip so it contests the AK with silence, rather than power. mkay homie?
2019-02-16 15:01
Well you saying your opinion is that the aug is fine now, but valve could add more ammo to the m4s. No one will use the m4s with more ammo if we have this aug in the game for almost the same price

nono, I meant the m4a1-s , which is silencer, and utterly little used atm

Before the changes of the price, noone would use that gun, small changes can end up with big changes. I think it's okay as it is, we need more changes to the guns, like the bizon, dual berretas etc.

no it won't /close m4 has always been more expensive than ak and it should be like that to the infinity

The SG has also a scope, and it's kinda stronger than the AUG, because of the 100% armour penetration and the one shoot ability. So it's kinda balanced.

In same time the m4 doesn't need to have the ability to one shot, it would make it pretty OP, because of the recoil. The CT'S have more advantage overall than the tt's because, you always have an advantage when you hold angles and gaps. So the tt's need something in return, which is their prices of their gun.

the worst thing valve did to cs is to make it free to play. I think they want cs players to stop playing it, and come out with new updated cs.

that is actually one oif the best things they did look at the numbers after this update it doesn't affect pro scene, semi-pro scene or even casual vac secured scene so what's the problem? free to play guys have their own place to play cs and it's good.

price update is not so recent yet everyone started crying about augs just for the last few weeks
2019-02-16 14:52

rofl xD IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN THE GAME but know a lot of players are using it not because it was buffed but because we discovered it is as good as m4. awp is also ruining the game coz it's overpowered because of it's 1 shot 1 kill? it's not like u can't kill the guy with aug xD you have ak which is the best rifle in the game so? learn how to play nabs
2019-02-16 15:09

Some find the scope Aug spray downs less interesting to watch, personally i don't mind it on a entertainment level, rather how ct now just has a much larger advantage.
