came here, saw the wall of text, got scared and left
Everything you stated is so true, on some points I also recognize myself (for example if there are 5 people making an execute with smokes, flashes and molly on A, as a CT I don't know how to defend it (I mostly play B, but sometimes I have to go A and I don't feel confident on this bombsite as a CT).
On T side, I'm always the only guy to smoke window, connector or B. Some guys know a CT smoke but that's all.
As a A player, I also always take the peek in palace when I only have a Deagle, but when it's full buy I never do it cuz I don't want to die early with all my stuff
mirage fave map
overpass best tho
T side, rush b bleat, dying all 5 in molotov.
>window smoke from T spawn
Mirage is easy if you just know how to aim
1. some people soloq and gl with execute aside from the basic
1. 90% of csgo player are not tryhard faceit grinder
2. almost all the thing you say is actually true props to that
3. average rank of csgo player is gold nova 3 . . . . so dont expect them to know shit
I hate mirage. You can get fucked over on 1000 angles. It's ugly to look at. I always forget the lineup on the b smokes. Even when you throw one, it probably never covers the angle you would have needed it. Window smoke is easy, but when I throw it, some guy still manages to run in before the smoke has landed even when I telll him to wait. I'd rather not play it, but some guy always wants to play it.
and thats the reason why myrage is autoban when i'm captain
Stopped reading after .... i didn't even read it sorry men(
Dunno any smokes and proud of it
Simple: because Mirage is more complicated than it seems. If you dont know how to play mid on both sites and the other team exploits it, you are fked.
I don't know any single smoke and it doesn't stop me from playing good on it.
True af dude, i agree with everything
mirage its easiest map to play and ppl even at 3k elo dont even know how to play
the most annoying thing its when idiots as T dont use their grenades to take mid control and they go like 2 ramp and 2 b apps instead to take mid . XD
or when they go mid they dont smoke anything and they just join in awp zoom and die
Every map has a set of smokes to throw when you go for an execute. The thing is, most of the people just want to pop some heads and not play like astralis in a facet pug. If u are so serious about csgo you should find a team.
and to top it all off, most of these players like to bait the shit out of their team, and in many cases most of their kills are eco, exit or failed clutch frags
(+ people seem to tilt much easier on that map)
(speaking on my experience)
Mirage is the worst map in the pool nocap
Meybe focus own game. You care too much how others play
i play mirage only for running ramp or mid to hs battle
Mirage is the best map in the pool and the most fun to play in pugs because you can do so much more than just execute trough choke points.
That B execute stuff is pretty useless, if u rush the smokes give it away 15 seconds before push and it takes forever to pop. Also if ur rushing there is no one in the kitchen if they dont expect it you can just smoke it later on and short is easy to trade, just use mollys to car and bench and spam flash the site.
I can somewhat agree that people in t side dont focus mid enought and the most annyoing shit is to hear that one mastermind with broken english saying "go a smoke" after few loss rounds and then call some second mark that requires you to sit in ramp for 30seconds and just wait for the mid flank to happen.
Read it all, you are 100% right. Sadly i'm one of those guys (at least not lv 10 at all). Mirage is probably my worst map and i struggle at improving.
I would like to add that a lot of people also seem to think that the ct holding mid should do it alone. I only get a teammate on short or connector maybe 20% of the time even though I ask for help. (Especially annoying when the Ts go mid almost every round and my team just doesn't care)
Mirage- I don't fucking play the map.
Only play it for some nice practise. I don't know other smokes than stairs,CT,jungle.
Also I know only mid and connector smokes and short cross smoke. On B I know nothing except short smoke when compared to D2s,2 B cross smokes,1 B retake smoke for tunnels,2 mid 2 B smokes,2 short to B smokes,CT smoke from long,xbox smoke,long smoke for CT from short boost and numerous amount of one way smokes on long,mid doors,long doors,short,a site defense,etc. This map has easy T side if you take mid control but literally no one wants that so I lose always. I play mm though, solo.
You can see that I play this map least.
Better maps are D2,Ovp,Cache are my only likes. Make nuke better because its layout if similar.
mirage is smoke map.
When playing as T, I would want to throw 5 smokes to A and mid directly after spawn.
Then buy new smokes and bomb B.
But i dont have necessary teammates to do that
That's why I refuse to play this map. Btw is it real chuckyyy?
mirage/de_faceit = shitmap
So you wrote some useless shit man
Yes its truth, people dont know how to play right.
But at least they know how to smoke something on mirage.
I dont think your mates give smoke on cache, inferno, overpass, i mean not right-click smokes when you are already in position.
i like playing mirage but i cant be arsed to learn smokes in this game at all
is there any good top connector smoke?
same goes for d2 and cache
How do you see G2's performance at the major?
I'm only playing MM atm, and of course almost everyone don't know how to smoke in any map, so i'm ok with it
+1 you have great game sense and i agree on everything but after all its only pugs so what do u expect xD
It's only the most played because the noobs flock there as a pug style aim map to play. I predict it will be removed soon
