when will people on this site understand that "lurker" is NOT a role in pro cs, not anymore. Players dont play lurker anymore, sure u can lurk some rounds to backfire but its not a real role in a team. Teams dont hire players as the role "we go push a and u come 40 sec later from another pos".. Pls, this "lurker role" dont exist anymore. CSGO is not really played that way anymore..sorry im getting tilted by this "make a team" threads and everyone is setting a "lurker"..

to lurk you must bait team, but do it effectively like get_right used to, not like happy did

Maybe even earlier. A mate of mine always calls the shittiest strats in game. It's always boost me middle and rush a, I will flank them. You rush B I go A alone. and he always comes way too late and loses a 1v3 or 1v2 or sth. Pisses me off nad he doesn't want to accept, that he is just baiting.
2020-05-29 13:08

you never know, in nigeria the age of consent is 11, japan is like 13
2020-05-29 19:08
Well yeah, but most of the times it is more complicated than that. For example I will explain the german age of consent to you. Under 14: Sexual exploitation of a minor, potentially rape. 14-16: If the other partner is under 21. 16-18: Only if you don't hold authority over the person that you could exploit, e.g. teacher, policeman, potentially (step)-parents. 18+: Go on a fucking spree, hump everything you fucking want.

Just get good clutch player, he can play lurk
2020-05-29 13:05 rate my clutch success 1-10.
2020-05-29 13:09
7. 1v1 is pretty good, but you need start winning some 1v2 rounds, if you won them, probably their economy will be fucked, if not, the 2 people you killed (if they have some gun and low money) will have no money.
2020-05-29 13:12
I wanted to compare myself to proplayer stats and looked at NiKo, he has a 59% success rate in 1v1s, so that is really decent. I don't know how I compare in 1v2,3,4,5 b/c HLTV only lists the failed 1v1s, definitely sth I have to work on. Thank you.

Just add your recent games on a weekly basic to csgostats and those are the stats that really mater in detail. for the rest the steam api is good enough.

2020-05-29 13:07
that's false, there are roles. they are more subtle but they still are here the roles in 2k20 are this now : awper, any player in attack trio, guy whose watching flank/extremity """"lurk""""

those arent "roles" you're not assigned these "roles" or specialise in them (except for awper) no one lurks every single round, if you are gonna lurk it normally depends on what you and ur team are tryna do that round
2020-05-29 13:16
do you know what are defaults ? thats so stupid have you seen a demo of any pro team for exemple ? on certain maps a player will be playing the same role every round (olof lurk on dust2 for exemple) its just that depending of the map he plays a different role. Of course everybody has a base role its just that pro teams vary so that they can be unpredicatble and not obvious so to summarize, on every map you will see a guy playing the same role most of the time (NBK b anchor on EVERY map or lurking on every map) (gla1ve In attack trio) so saying roles dont exist is stupid

There are roles, but they're not like some people think. Players do not play a singular role, even though there are some they play more often. They "are not" the role. Every player plays support, every player plays entry, every player can lurk (op is insane if he thinks lurking doesn't happen in professional play) and AWP.
2020-05-29 16:58

Elige is an entry. Tarik plays either entry or support but teams can have multiple support players like astralis does. Cold has always been support, taco even posted about it back in sk.

None of the roles are still there. The commonly mentioned roles that were played in 2015 (when Thorin coined the roles and definitions) the teams usually played 4 on one site and 1 on the other. Now they play map control with either 2-1-2 or 1-3-1. You got extremities and "support" to them. But if you take a team like Fnatic you see the supports being entries as well, while the actulha extremities (Brollan and Flusha) usually play follow-up.

Should also be noted, while there is no dedicated lurker role in most teams, in a round one player might still be playing lurk, and in a lot of teams the same player plays that role all the time. Not strictly, of course, but for example olof used to play a lurk-kind of role on FaZe. He had other roles as well, but in the rounds where they had a lurk, it was usually olof.
2020-05-29 13:36
Sweden Lagge15 
They still played a lead modern approach in their T-sides though, so there you had the lurk role. Now NiKo is kind of a lurker but at the same time he doesn't wanna be too far away from the action.
2020-05-29 14:23
syrsoN | 
Sweden quacke 
Yeah makes sense. I just felt the post was a little bit unclear considering lurking still is a thing, and often the same player does it all the time, just that there are other things that same player does in a round.
2020-05-29 14:25
Sweden Lagge15 
Yeah in the old set up, as I said, it is a role. But most top teams have changed the meta setup over the past 2-3years. Or who would you call a lurker on Inferno in Fnatic? You got the dig flair where the old roles are still in play as well, but not the same players have the roles, in the same way. The difference between playing under Fifflaren and not playing under Fifflaren

I can't actually say that I've seen enough of Fnatic on Inferno as to who plays lurk, but I don't get the feeling they have a designated player. It feels like they have a lot of different setups with a lot of different player rotations. Not all teams have a designated lurker who lurks when needed, I just used FaZe as an example because they've used it previously, first with broky, then olof. With Bymas I'm not too sure. As for DIG I really like their playstyle because it feels like they are taking the old elements of CS and combining it with the newer elements of hallzerk's AWPing. hallzerk reminds me of players like ZywOo, more mobile and dynamic than your old school AWPer who was just posted on mid for an entire game. It's great to look back and see how the meta has changed. A double AWP setup was heresy when I started off in 2015, these days it's basically standard on the CT side.
2020-05-29 14:40
Sweden Lagge15 
I took Fnatic as an example because they don't play the "classical" version of CSGO. They play the modern version where you rather play on a position on the map, than in a role. If they go B-Flusha is follow-up and Brollan is Lurker. If they go A then Flusha is Lurker and Brollan is follow-up. The two supportive players - Golden and Krimz, will be entry. The lurkers responsibility is to either sell a fake or to cut off rotations. But if you rather play map control or positioning, then each player need to be confident playing any of the traditional roles. Liquid is the most obvious one (when they won all those events in 2019) when they switched roles, not just between maps or rounds, but within the rounds as well. I don't know enough about DIG since they had to play with GuardiaN for a long time which hindered their evolution/development a lot.

Yeah, I really should analyze Fnatic closer because that's basically the same style that I use when playing.

It is the "modern" version. I would guess most tactical teams utilize it. Astralis is another good example, but it is tougher to analyse

Astralis are the pinnacle of switching up the meta imo, considering they basically made this modern meta.

2020-05-29 13:46
the lurker's job is to hold map control and punish enemies pushing for info.
2020-05-29 13:48
There are no roles, except igl and awper of course. There are only players with different skillsets. Some players have good mechanical skills, some have good game sense, some have both, some are good at clutches and so on and so forth, but those aren't roles. The only other thing i would accept as a role is an anchor player. Someone who you can trust to hold one bombsite alone, like ropz on B train e.g. However those are mostly the players who are just better than the others in the team and being stronger is not really a role in the game. It just gives you more opportunities to do things, others can't. Most of the time your "role" will change from round to round and often depends on the spawn you get. Maybe u tried to lurk in banana to catch aggresive cts, while your team pressures the a site. All of a sudden you get two entry frags and now you clear the site, your team goes b and your player in apps will now lurk to catch rotating cts. It all always depends on so many things (your spawn / your equipment / enemeny economy / first kill of the round / etc etc), that you can never define generally set role for every player. This would definitely hinder your team in your options. Every player needs to have the same general skillset in order to perfom the same tasks in a given situation. What if you have the first engagement of the round, because a ct is pushing you. You don't shoot back because you aren't the entry fragger? That's just rediculous. Every player is an entry fragger
2020-05-29 13:53
the role is extremity lurking is a playstyle depending on the situation (for example in a 4v4 on inferno, u have middle, ur team executes on B, the opponents are in 2A 2B, u can flank and kill the guy rotating long) etc. but the real role is extremity, there are 2 extremities on a team, can change between the maps for example both extremities in NaVi are electronic and flamie, both can flank but most of time they go with the trio (Boombl4, s1mple, Perfecto) Perfecto can also take the flank tho
2020-05-29 13:56
you perfectly described "the lurker" with that 4v4 example, why call it something else? it is a role in that specific moment - a situational role if you like, taken by the player in the most favorable position for that role. whether that is usually the same player of the team depends on their tactical approach.
2020-05-29 14:18
yeah but it's "extremity", you can "lurk" but u dont have to every round basically the extremities are controlling their zones, if the CTs tryna push for infos if they're in a numeric disadvantage

i mean, teams probably have that one player who usually lurks when its needed, but ye I dont think its even worth calling a role at all.
2020-05-29 13:58
ropz is mad now
2020-05-29 14:02
Lurker is usually a situational role now but it also doesn't have to be. Most roles can overlap anyway and switch depending on the default setup of the team or even the map. Usually, the two most consistent roles are IGL and AWP, but even those overlap a lot (FalleN, Niko, autimatic, etc.) Then again, either one can also take on the Entry role on top of that... so the whole role system is pretty far from being 1 player / 1 role.
2020-05-29 14:09
A lurker doesnt have to come to site 40 sec later. In today's csgo pros usually play lurk by cutting off rotations, like on dust2 waiting in lower tunnel on dust2 when your team is planting A, or waiting in mid/vent on cache when your team is planting on B etc. I see ropz doing these plays all the time
2020-05-29 14:20

Nowadays roles dont exist anymore, its more a positions thing, but I think using these old names for roles tends to give people an idea of what those player positions are, Supports nowadays arent real supports anymore, but they are the ones playing positions such as monster on CT side and usually play for flank watch or info in T side, the role we call Lurker nowadays is more of a extremity player like playingt apps on inferno, which doesnt mean catching rotations like in the get-right days, nowadays its more of a utility role where you get info and then reunite with the team unless you can catch a info push and turn the round, but agains its not the "I play separated every round, all round long" that we used to see with Happy and GTR, because nowadays people have gotten better at not over rotating and hard lurks like thta get punished

Some teams still implement this role in their strats. Mouz is a good example. The lurk role isn't called upon every round, and the goal is to create distractions which could be throwing a false execute or even getting an opening kill so I wouldn't exactly say its a baiter role if it's used correctly. I wouldn't say its a set role but more like a role that can be utilized in a teams strats. But this really isn't any different from roles like entryfragging or support either...It is roles that teams utilizes when they make executes

Croatia cLutcheR7 
Happy did it back with Envy but after Cologne he sucks at it. His tactics is readable mostly the lurking part. GeT_RiGhT somehow was effective with it although he doesn't play that role actively ever since they went shit. I still believe this "role" can be still be helpful to suprise out enemies getting atleast 1-2 kill but sometimes you can also get off guard or can cause to lose the round if not enough time. Also there is different with Lurker and baiting. You literally wait then get the stats you wanted as a baiter. But as a Lurker you can backstab the enemies. Also pushing Apps queitly while your team rushes long can fall off to the same category. You get opening frags or just wait and then die.

Yes its not exactly a big role rn but only some players in every team do it for eg in astralis magsik , glaive and dupreeh never do it , its always device(when he isnt awping) or xyp9x

gtr is lurking lately and hes somewhat coming back to his old form
2020-05-30 01:23
It is just an aggressive/playmaker player actually. Who usually do pushs and end lurking if nothing is found.. I agree that the real lurking is not used anymore, but many teams have specific aggressive players.
2020-05-30 07:55
quite often lurker is opposite of aggressive as the main aggression is elsewhere in the map where it's supported with nades & players are in position to trade it doesn't make sense for a lurker to be "making plays" alone except in specific circumstances as you're basically just feeding the enemy team unless you can surprise them which usually in pro level requires teammates to open up the map with their aggression
2020-05-30 10:55
I was thinking more in the CT side.. In mirage for exmple: Rain always sneak in A dark or Fallen rush A halls.. and they end up lurking if nothing is found. For TR its makes little sense I agree.

2020-05-30 10:09
It was never a fixed role, lmao. Anyone can lurk anytime, in a pro team all the players should be able to do the role. CSGO commentators are just trash and have never played CS competitively. Except a few exceptions like lurppis and PIMP

I guess it takes time to get there (I don't really know since in latinamerica there is no FaceIt) but 'lurker' is not a fixed role, no matter who says it is.
2020-05-30 17:29
Pretty much nobody who talks about roles is saying that the role is "fixed" in a way where it is always played and used like that by a certain player. The dynamic of a team is flexible and everyone knows that, it's just that some players more often take up certain jobs like going for picks and flanks (aka lurker)
2020-06-02 20:49
I usually hear commentators refer to it as a fixed role. For example they called GTR NiP Lurker..
2020-06-03 01:38
Not a role, just another name for "baiting"
