EG crosshair placement???
Greenland DragOo_is_ADMIN 
I noticed that EG is often aiming at head height (especially Brehze and Tarik) and I wanted to tell you guys why it's so smart and how huge of a part that plays in their success. This is mostly not true for eco rounds / force buys, but even here they often go for headshots (even with USP or glock). I know many people will say "Of course they aren’t aiming at head height, they are pro players, what is he talking about?". Well, every player that plays Counter-Strike has heard "keep your crosshair at chest height" a ton of times. You never see anybody question it and you surely don't see anyone on a pro level aim at head height. But if you watch Evil Geniuses play you will notice that their crosshair is not at chest height, it's actually around the head if possible. Of course they are aiming at chest height when using the AWP or the enemy is on low hp. There are a ton of reasons to aim at head height (even on a pro level). Here are some of them: Getting killed after being shot is hugely influential in a fight. If you go for headshots your enemy will be die after being shot because the all the guns in this game do a lot more damage to the head. It's a lot more likely to kill the enemy when aiming at head height. This one is obvious. This also allows them to always get the frags that you have to get. Winning the round is a lot easier because of the previous 2 points. Aiming at the enemy and then shooting at their head to kill them. They will die, resulting in you being able to reposition or even engage the next enemy as well. How often have we seen other pro players bodyshot someone and not kill the enemy. It's not only that you don't kill him - you also leave that player alive, ready to kill more of your teammates or use utility. stan "the man" Jarguz and Tarik “watermelon” Celik of course have an insane understanding of the game but thinking that they are somehow the only 2 people that know timings of pro teams is surely questionable. And how likely would it be that exactly the 5 people that are good at making content are in the same team? If Brehze for example is fighting against another player he will most likely hit him for 111 before he gets shot back. Brehze hits the first bullet in the head while the enemy is still trying to hit the chest. Most players dont get a kill with their first or second bodyshot. Trading is a lot easier. If Brehze dies in that fight, his teammate only needs to hit him once with an ak as well - really likely considering the he knows the enemy will try and bodyshot him as well, giving him more time to lineup that headshot. Multikills are likely. How many times have we seen traik or brehze get these insane multifrags? You never see "tarik 3k bodyshot hold" on the frontpage, but "tarik 3k hs". If you watch these clips, they are almost always aiming at head height. You will get the first frag in 90% of the times. Probably even the second one, because the enemy is trying to bodyshot you. With a bit of luck you also get the third one. And this is often the case with EG. Now think about this: EG might have noticed that this is actually a better way to fight. And how can you make this even better? By pre-placing your crosshair at the head-level so you are already shooting at the head by the time the enemy peeks the angle. Even hitting the enemy once in the head for ~111 will make sure you never have to hit them again with an AK (-111 in 1 hit with armor, 140 without). Imagine how unfair that is: An Evil Geniuses player peeks around the corner and he will hit you with his first bullet and you will die. If you want to survive you will have to hit bodyshots with your first 4 bullets (and if you're unlucky you have an M4 and he has full hp). And if you get flashed you are already done. You will not survive going around a corner. Do this while staying at an off angle (which guarantees you a couple of free shots) and you are nearly invincible. Even if you get flashed you will have a really good chance to kill the enemy - just look at tarik and stanislaw holding an angle where they expect a peek. They get flashed and they still get the kill - because they are going for the headshot. We see these insane 3k/4k plays from EG that have little to do with strategy or teamplay. So how come that all of these EG players can do this? They surely are not the only mechanically skilled team out there. And this might be the reason. Hitting the body is the most effective way to kill an enemy - but hitting their head is the most efficient. The more you think about this the better it becomes. Tell me your thoughts, I'm curious!

/theory Problem is, I think, is that people start playing on MM and due to some crappy servers it's better to aim safe than be sorry, so over time people get used to just aim for a spray down instead of a clean headshot.
