Free FaceIT since CS became F2P
this is a very sad thread I'm about to make
does anyone remember when people were first saying "RIP CSGO" and after that every1 was like "it's fine, it won't affect FaceIT etc."
turns out the latter was very, and I mean very untrue
I started the FaceIT grind after I hit global and finally had 300 fps, starting in around December, when I was lvl 3-4, after a few weeks I got to lvl 8, my highest yet, then - in January, I stopped playing CS as I was burnt out, and played other games, but kept up with the CS pro scene and the game itself, well - that's when the F2P update came out, I thought it would ruin CS and it really did - but not so severely as I imagined it to.
Since summer began, I started playing CS again, eventually getting into it competitively, so I started playing FaceIT again (to clarify I only had premium once way back in the days, what I was talking about is free FaceIT)
First few games weren't too different from the ones I played in January/December & way before, but after those matches literal hell broke loose, before my break I met 0 cheaters on FaceIT, or at least they hid it very well, but now, nearly every single match I get a lvl 6 "pro" against me who plays literally better than a 3k elo lvl 10 (and I'm a lvl 9 now, nearly hit 10 a few days ago, the matchmaker is broken) and we usually lose the match 6-16-ish. They usually write "lol you suck", "we are just better than you are lmao git gud" and similar things to that. And no, it's not because I'm bad, at least I think so, I tend to play against lvl 10s (like 30% of the time) and somehow they aren't that good which means I play good and we usually win the match. Those lvl 6s either have a new account, are "streamers", have 0.9 K/D or 1.6 K/D (doesn't matter, they always get 30+ kills). And I'm not the only one who's bitching about them, usually my team is like "wtf bro how can they be so good" and "def cheating no way a lvl 6 is that good". Yep, sad indeed.
