The way things are going at the moment, I wouldn't be at all surprised if the top 5 players at the end of CS:GO are all AWPers. The weapon just allows for far greater consistency than rifles. Even when you're not in great form, it's too easy to pad your stats with routine AWP shots and exit frags. It seems almost inevitable that the Olofs, GTRs and the Coldzeras will be eclipsed by players like dev1ce and kennyS.
Even with the young talents coming up, it seems like 90% of them are AWPers. It doesn't matter whether it's the UK scene, Bulgarian scene, Polish scene, Danish scene, etc. The players who really stand out are the AWPers. I refuse to believe that's just a coincidence and they really are the best players in their country.
Also, I think the reason why AWPers are dominating now more than ever is that pro players are notoriously slow to adapt to these things. It took years before they all started realising how OP the UMP was before Valve nerfed it, and hardly anyone used the Krieg at all before Valve temporarily lowered the price to show everyone how powerful it was. Now it's back to the original price and pro players are calling for a nerf!
And on the subject of new fags, were you even born when CS first came out? Something tells me you weren't, or you were too young to even remember it.
