What did Valve change exactly? I mean the cost is now less but what else? Obviously, the reason is not the cost because even though teams had 10k money, they had been buying M4 instead of AUG. Can someone explain it to me?
2019-02-22 20:08
It's always been good, just too expensive before.
2019-02-22 20:09
Was not it 3300 before? now it is 3150. I don't think it was expensive.
2019-02-22 20:12
3500
2019-02-22 20:12
That's wrong, it was $3300 before.
2019-02-22 20:25
you are right i know it was 3500 in 1.6 so tought it was in csgo too
2019-02-22 20:34
That is nade money you're losing if you bought the AUG before. But $50 now isn't that much.
2019-02-22 20:13
Lol what expensive, people just didnt try it before valve touched it, it just drew everyones attention and slowly they found out its OP Rn even if it cost 4k most pros would buy it
2019-02-22 20:14
no aug was much more priced than 3300 .. he lies
2019-02-22 20:15
No it wasnt. It was 3300
2019-02-22 20:15
3300 only? wow i didnt think that, but no it wasnt cuz valve touched it but yes because shroud started saying it was good etc etc and other people, then valve yes changed it
2019-02-22 20:16
Dude shroud got shit on for using it. No one cared. The only other pro I remember using something like that was magisk, using the sg krieg in some games. I heard that tonyblack used to buy it too, but that I cant confirm. 100%, people started using it after valve touched it, elige picked it up from day one and slowly it started to stick, karrigan picked up a bit later etc, but it was really at the start of this year that the aug took over Still no kriegs, but if nothing changes they'll use it too. It's better as well.
2019-02-22 20:19
you didnt watch the same cs as me then, G2 was using kriegs only before the money update i remember a great cobblestone match with krieg only

Oh sorry, I remembered wrong then. My bad
2019-02-22 20:31
Apparently it was 3500>3300>3150 But I remember 3300 for a long time So not entirely ur bad, I guess bad on both parts and mostly valve for making this gun

it was 3700
2019-02-22 20:35
You wouldn't be able to buy utility then, not worth it.
2019-02-22 20:15
It would be worth it if u had the money for it, which is exactly my point. Ofc they wanna get at least some utility, thats why many times people buy famas+utility, doesnt mean the m4 isnt worth it If the ct's had strong economy, they'd buy it 100%
2019-02-22 20:17
Risky move though, lose the round and you're fucked.
2019-02-22 20:19
Depends on ur priorities. Look at how much better ct's are with it. U can even do the old 2 round save and have a full buy with augs on round 4. I'd do it. Easy 20% higher round winrate.
2019-02-22 20:21
Highly doubt that,you can earn a lot more from smoke double flash than an aug
2019-02-26 09:43
It was 3500, the price got reduced to 3300, still no one used it. Everyone knew it had potential, but since good economy control often dictates who wins pro matches, no one ever really used it. I think AUG is so popular now only because the price reduction removed that final excuse for not learning how to use it.
2019-02-22 20:20
Got nothing to do with it. It's a culture thing. CS has always been ak+m4+awp. Even now u see pros calling the aug a noob weapon, even if they use it. The final excuse was how broken everyone realised this thing is.
2019-02-22 20:23
If AUG is really that much better than M4, I don't think nobody would care the 450.

It was $3300 before.
2019-02-22 20:32

2019-02-22 20:10
Idk about teams, but I remember NBK and Magisk using it a while ago.

People didn't pick it up because of price, so they never realised how good it could be. Once the price changed they tried it out and realised how much better it is.
2019-02-22 20:11
its a good point, teams would never buy it even in last round when having loads of money

only the price
2019-02-22 20:12
Only the price but it is better than m4 in every way so it basically replaced it. Only player I know that still uses m4 is Aerial from ENCE and he uses m4a1-s.
2019-02-22 20:14
Yeah and hes and idiot, why the fuck would you use the M4A1-S, such a shit gun.
2019-02-22 20:25
I mean, in the end it comes down to personal preference, if he gets the job done with the M4A1-S then why not use it.
2019-02-22 20:28
Because youll get it done faster with an AUG or A4, infact at close to medium range the famas kills faster than the A1.
2019-02-22 20:30
But if he's more used to the A1-S why would he change it to M4 especially during the major?
2019-02-26 09:45
Im not sure but didnt faze play with m4s
2019-02-26 09:55
Also f0rest
2019-02-26 10:21
No idea, haven't watched any of their games.
2019-02-26 10:21

reason why they never use before even with 10k is they didnt practice it. now when price drop everyone start to prctice with it on dm etc and valve could raise a price and it would be still used
2019-02-22 20:25
so there is nothing to be fixed as some crowds say. It was the same and powerful but pros just realized it.
2019-02-22 20:29
it's a completely different game now. cs has been so good for ~20 years just because the m4/ak balance exists almost perfectly. AUG ruins that balance. don't fix what's not broken.
2019-02-22 20:34
m4/ak balance? Ak is way better than m4. How is it balanced?

yes they should revert price back and i believe its gonna be still used but maybe little less
2019-02-23 13:18
I think its the same It only Is used now because it doesnt cost a Flash more than m4 anymore And because pros started to use it it no more counts as a noob gun so everyone uses it
2019-02-22 20:26
aug need practice, that why nobody buy it before
2019-02-22 22:09
+1 i think elige tweeted that this is reason for many pros and explains why they didnt but it even if they had lots of money
2019-02-26 09:58
before, people didnt care about it so we didnt know it was so OP (because no one used it obviously), now that the price makes the aug viable,more people use it and now see how OP it is and are just asking for a nerf...
2019-02-26 09:58
As a ct u are already spending more on main gun,kit and more expensive moly That extra price wasnt justifiable

In game, the AUG is a CT-exclusive assault rifle, and the most expensive assault rifle for CTs at $3500/$3150 (in CS:GO).
