In all seriousness, reddit hosts civil discussion. (Something that can't exactly be said for HLTV.) Weather or not they're right is subjective, but people on HLTV aren't smarter just because they share an opinion with you.

yeah, lets just go back to how it was in 2014. they changed it for absolutely no reason back then. on the other hand, it might also be good to stop talking nonsense.

2019-03-14 19:41
Spoken like someone who didn't play Csgo in 2015. Back then the A1 was $3200 so $100 more than the A4 and had 20/40 ammo and 666rpm so the same as the A4 firerate. April 2015 pro tournament: It was used way, WAY more than the A4 to the point where the A4 was nearly irrelevant with nearly no pro using it as shown. Nearly everyone was using the A1 despite it being $100 more than the A4. This is what caused Valve to give it a big nerf in September 2015.

"It was used way, WAY more than the A4 to the point where the A4 was nearly irrelevant with nearly no pro using it as shown." Your logic is retarded, I could say the same about the usage rate of M4A4 and M4A1-S pre-AUG meta. M4A1-S isn't even on these tournament usage charts, therefore M4A4 must be OP, according to you.
2019-03-14 23:10
I'm not even arguing against the point that the A4 is used too much now compared to the A1 and I too think the A1 needed a buff. What I am arguing with you is your point that the old A1 back when it had 20/40 ammo and 666rpm "wasn't overpowered" according to you. It was definitely overpowered and led to the A1 dominance in the M4 choice. After the big A1 nerf over time that led to the A4 and A1 switching places where the A4 is used too much over the A1.
2019-03-15 00:10
i dont think its possible to balance M4A1 and M4A4. either the dps will be almost the same and the added value of the silencer will make the A1 better in most situations, or the dps wont be the same and people will prefer the A4. im only using A1 now because AUG is better than the A4 in literally every aspect so its nice to have an actual alternative. A4 is still better if you only compare the 2 M4s.

Only at the very beginning when it was released then Valve increased the price to 3100 and then 3200 before it got its big nerf.
2019-03-18 09:29
it wasnt valve just hates it that people play only one weapon they should change them so that everyone might want to deicde themself what gun to play and not whats meta for that changing all weapons at once in a correct way should work

2019-03-14 01:05
Croatia mds818 
crisp clean headshots easy flanking not making noise all over the map while shooting bullets not being traced if you can aim there's no point in using a4
2019-03-14 01:09
no point using a4? yeah right it just has higher rof and more ammo, why would you use that. It's more like if you cant hit anything, grab an a1 which should be more accurate so you hit at least something. The points you listed here may be nice but a4 has even bigger advantages
2019-03-14 01:11
Croatia mds818 
"higher rof and more ammo", dude that's equal to saying that more hp in car=faster car while ignoring all the other factors... why would I use more bullets and higher rof if im behind my opponents all the time and underline all the time, if I start taking them down(especially 1 by 1) with a4 they will hear me and see on radar=im dead(get 1 kill, maybe 2) if i'm behind them with a1 they wont figure it out that fast and I can shut down the round...
2019-03-14 01:14
You can use the weapon you want Sir, but if you are ALWAYS behind your enemies and ALWAYS killing 1 by 1, you are a golden nova.
2019-03-14 03:12
Croatia mds818 
I get your point but its working on all ranks because noone is doing that and it really goes down to the gamesense
2019-03-14 07:24
how would u know what works on the highest ranks? LOL
2019-03-14 08:13
That doesn't make any sense. I'm GE and level 9 in faceit, nothing special, just a "medium level" because i've play CS since 2002, but in highest ranks, it's nearly impossible to do those things. People look everywhere, people clear everywhere. Sometimes you can be behind enemy steps, but isn't something you will ALWAYS DO and ALWAYS WILL WORK. Specially when you kill someone 1 by 1 without trade kill lol.
2019-03-14 21:13
Croatia mds818 
dude it worked from gold nova to supreme, I'm not saying that I will rush 15 times and 15 times I will get the kills but something what works 90 percent of the times rushing under on mirage first round, pushing mid to a ramp in early rifle rounds(when they don't have awp) or when their economy is low, etc etc not to list all situations but you just need to calculate the stuff correctly but roughly if you play m4 and awp(sort of being primary awp but taking m4 when needed in certain rounds) you can catch them off the guard shitload of times it's just the matter of whatever if you're willing to give it a shot or not
2019-03-14 21:21
ok, now you have a point, ty for explanation! PS: shoxie and ScreaM are the proof that m4a1s can work if you have a good aim :)
2019-03-14 21:36
Germany Fabbsen 
I feel like the best thing is to equip M4A1-S and for situations you would take the M4A4 you just take the AUG which is even better then the M4A4
2019-03-14 21:45
Croatia mds818 
that's an interesting idea tbh
2019-03-14 21:58
Germany Fabbsen 
Gob actually did that since the aug update. He used the M4A1-S often too but the last year he moved to the M4 aswell until the AUG change. Best thing to do imo as you can still have both advantages during a game depending on what you gonna do.

2019-03-14 01:07
ROF is still by far the biggest selling point of the A4 so it is a legitimate compliant. but I like this change. It makes the two M4s actually more competitive with one another. Mainly: A4 - higher damage but less accuracy, no silencer, more bullets A1-S - lower damage but more accuracy, has a silencer, less bullets

Rofl Valve is making some insanely good updates for the game and for the pro scene and still people complain. They've clearly learned their lesson of not pushing a huge change too much, so they tweak things slowly. They didn't nerf the CZ out of existence, they just did a bunch of small nerfs until the gun is pretty much balanced.

player become better every year. compare pro games from 2014 to 2019. ak was way better (one shot. 2.7k, spray ez for good player, players aim improved)before aug balanced ct site tbh. i think old m4a1s with old firerate old mag size would be balanced at this point and not op like it was in 2015. still good update tho!
2019-03-14 02:33

Finland Fliida 
Some people just want to cry.
2019-03-14 07:28
Five extra rounds isnt going to change anything. The problem with the m4a1 is that its too slow to kill. If the ammo was a problem the gun wouldnt have been a 1st choice in 2014. Its just going to go back to the same shit. People will try m4a1, realize how shit it still is (why wouldnt it be? the gun is the same you just gave it more rounds) then they will go back to m4a4, 90% a4 10% a1. This is like giving the sawed off more ammo in an effort to improve the gun. Still the same shit

m4a1-s got nerfed to have slower rate of fire, making the m4a4 have a higher damage output. the recoil was also nerfed to be worse than it was back in 2014 so it wasn't a laser anymore.

i just went back to the m4a1s because of the +15 bullets... feels amazing, it is like im flyin'
2019-03-14 22:22
idk, now with the a1 you can spray into smokes without being punished for the low ammo capacity, and that coupled with its non-existent tracers would make it pretty useful in a lot of situations.
2019-03-20 21:50
u would hit no one and run out of ammo even faster mr.the_trash_man_returns cause you cant control the recoil as it is now, how should you when it goes off even faster?
2019-03-14 07:44
I can aim shit cunt The m4a1s is a shit GUN, Giving a SHIT GUN more AMMO does not make it a GOOD GUN Its just a SHIT GUN with MORE AMMO. This is like giving the sawed off more ammo without changes to the actual gun, doesnt do anything

except the ammo is actually a talking point with the a1s. very subtle changes here and there for guns is always the best thing to do in such a stable shooter like csgo where much doesnt change over time (exept this new economy update lul). this isnt fortnite or whatever where shit just gets changed willy nilly

it feels soooooo great killing 3+ Ts on eco rounds without getting caught while reloading. the m4a1S is now viable, open ur eyes. its a really good gun, 1 head + 1 hit anywhere --> kill. plus spamming smokes is now an option... + pretty accurate and ez recoil

Actually a larger magezine is something that the community has been requesting for some time now. I don’t see a real issue with the way it is and I can see it coming back to an extent in the pro scene. Fire rate is still very slow however.

If you up the RPM it is overpowered. There needs to be a catch to the silencer or it is too good. Seems pretty logical. If it had same RPM as M4 there would be no point whatsover in playing with a standard m4
2019-03-14 22:15
true, 20/60 with 630 maybe The problem is they update and keep it like that forever Next update should be an rpm update even 25/75 with 630 rpm I think it could feel much better but m4a4 would still have the numbers advantage, so it would be used as well
2019-03-14 22:16

The point with having two different M4 rifles is that they are different. If you make them just like each other it defeats the purpose

when you play in low ranks, the silencer can actually be super useful, people dont really give much info when you flank and kill them so they often dont know where you are pros should use m4a4, but the plebs should choose which one they like more

Yeah, there are a lot of situations where I just see how bad it is 1v1, but sometimes it feels really good to spray people long range or shoot through smokes without having to worry much, especially now when you can waste some magazines. Imo a1 gameplay is just easier, but you definitely have bigger disadvantages.

Thing is, if you improve or revert the ROF changes, you are just putting two M4's to compete with each other on the same field in terms of DPS, killing capability. Sometimes you just gotta think outside of the box, you don't necessary need to balance weapons from the inside, you could totally balance the weapons from the outside. Weapons are not all about DPS, laser, ammo count.
