lvl 10's come here
United Kingdom Discodiplan 
My recent thread about the possibilities of solo climbing to lvl 10 has inspired me to pursue it, so I'm just going to ask a few questions to the better players among you guys and see if i can improve as currently I'm MGE with 1.6k hours in the game. Questions: 1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs Thanks in advance for any answers

1. 6.000+ hours, 1000 matches in matchmaking and over 2k on faceit. Ranked up to level 10 when I was 15 got, 3k elo next year. 2. Watch many live matches but almost never watch demos unless I'm really interested 3. I honestly don't know, it depends on whether I'm playing qualifiers or just a pug. 4. I wasted so much hours on deathmatch and aim botz and still I could easily lose aim map against some random level 6 so it didn't help me at all 5. If you know for sure that your teammates are trash and you're better then just bait, that's the only way you can win 6. I don't know any smokes except for basic ones 7. Yes, that way you won't match up against full stack

I regret every hour I spent on cs as I actually thought that I could achieve something but in the end I realized that it's all about talent as a few years ago I played with sh1ro who didn't even have hltv profile back then and imagine how upset I was when I found out that he never played neither deathmatch nor aim botz, just pugs (It took me 2-3 more years to realize that it's all about talent xD). I knew from the beginning that he's gonna be next star. I could've studied and applied to some good university instead of wasting over 6k hrs on cs and now I just have no idea what to do.

2021-01-19 10:29
1- 3k hours to get lvl10, could be less, but i spent a lot of time playing mm with friends for fun 2- pro demos/ pro matches live 3- both 4- you dont need to play that much dm to get lvl 10, but if you havent played cs for like 7 days its good way to get in shape, but for me the only warmup is 30mins on retake servers 5- dont ever bait, only your kd will get better, but you wont get better 6- basic lineups for every map in active map pools (example inferno: from banana to coils and ct, from second mid to motto, long, arch, library) (or mirage: ct, between stairs and bench, stairs, top mid, window, from b apps to kitchen window- can add short smokes) 7- for me it doesnt worth it, but some people prefer premium so idk - i would recommend playing both (50% soloq 50% hubs for example one day play solo, one day with friends)

2021-01-19 10:35
1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? 5k since 2015, 2 accounts on 3k elo 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? sometimes yes. 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? yes. keep that information and play around that. the game is not going to be won only by your instincts only. after all it's a team game. Spread your known information and try to lead your team or atleast some players that are near you. 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? DM DM DM DM DM DM DM, these mechanics and sens need to be automatically and your last problem you think about in a game. 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? If you're confident that you can trade or and win clutches, yes go for bait. Or tell your mates what you're doing so that they are ready to trade you. Nobody is going to smell what ur going to do next. 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? Basic smokes are enough for pugs. 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs Play premium. Hub level is really low, even if they're lvl 10 players there.
2021-01-19 10:39
1. 4,7k in almost 5 years of playing, about 220 to get GE, 1300 to lvl10, 18yo 2. no demos but I like watching pro matches and search for some interesting playses 3. when you know you are safe, I mean nobody should pick you I'm watching radar to see what is going on on the map and try to focus on info from my teammates 4. Absolutely not, by playing 1h of dm every day you is too much, I prefer more like 30-40 minutes dm, 20-30 minutes aim_botz or that type of map, aswell try to stick your crosshair to an enemy's head (i mean on botz) and start running from place to place, it'll help you with your crosshair placement and control. 5. Sometimes, when you have good spawn and you feel like picking then go and do it, if you dont do entry thats not problem, also do not try to entry every time, for example you have more money than your teammates and only utility in this round is yours, then you should play more as a baiter, but also as a support, also if you try to pick certain position over and over again and you can't nail that entry just stop, go to a different place or just simply dont pick 6. If you want to get to lvl 10 you should know atleast basic smokes and flashes for every map (maybe except Vertigo), it's not needed to know some wanky grenades from across the map for a fake or smthg like that, leave that to proffesional teams not games with randoms 7. Idk about premium cause I don't have it neither, of course it'll be better to play in hubs but only which speaks your language, it's always better and easier to communicate in your native language, also you can find some good people which you can later add and play with them GL

2021-01-19 10:42
I was lvl 10 from 2016-18 than i left the game. Questions: 1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? 2k from Jan 2015 to Dec 2016. I dont remember matches but i was around 18. Depends on person and your talent to the game but id say 4 hours per day only playing like 4 games with warmup its good to get there. 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? No, but i watched pro games live and took many things from there. 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? Ofcourse u need to track info and think all the time about enemy position. It comes natural, sometimes it can be missleading due to bad teammate info. 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? Every person has different week spots in games. For me personally DM was useless i felt bad after it but i played a lot of offline aim bots or dots It helped me the most. Id say u need to Spot weak things in your game (Spray, strafe, movement etc.) and work on them. Most of them are polished during DM thats why people say its good. 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? Depends on your feelings in game, on your form teammates etc. If ur hard carry dont throw yourself first spot in not prepared rush and also if u dont play good at this match ,sometimes its good to sacrifice yourself to gather information for team so they can with the round. 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? I know 3 smokes on mirage, thats all. For lvl 10 it can help but its not necessary. 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs If u want to make it semi-pro or pro buy premium and grind, if u play just for lvl 10 and to get better but not like crazy semi-pro. Just chill with friends in nonpremium. I was playing this game like 3 years ago so my answers might not be fully accurate. I remember there was big gap in lvl 10 2000 elo and lvl 10 2500 elo. Idk nowadays how different are those elos.
2021-01-19 10:39
1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? - 6.3k hours, started playing in late 2016 (around the time when new inferno was released), took me 700 matches to get to 3k elo (around 400 matches to get to lvl10), 16 right now 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? - I watch a lot of pro matches, not demos though, albeit I do watch my demos very rarely from time to time 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? - a bit of both 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? - I never play DM (only sometimes late at night when I cba to play Faceit so I just DM for fun for a bit), I prefer playing retakes/offline maps such as aim_botz as a form of warmup 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? - baiting is never worth it, but if you see that your teammates can't trade you then probably avoid going in first as you would have more impact not going in first 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? - it can be pretty useful, you don't need to go overboard in pugs tho, just learn basic util that could potentially win you rounds (point is - focus on getting better individually rather than learning all the util, once you get to a high enough level you will probably want to learn more util, but at your level I doubt knowing every smoke is going to help you a massive amount) 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs - premium is just as bad as free with the only difference being that you don't have to play against 5stacks, I'd recommend playing in hubs as even if you get to a high elo in free 5v5, nowadays it's literally hell as you ONLY play against 5stacks (hence why I was forced to start playing ECL), or you can alternatively try to get to high elo via free 5v5 and then switch to a hub like ECL

and yes, you will get better aim by just playing more (you will become a better player in general), you don't need to worry about playing DM

It's really not worth it to entryfrag because 90% of the time even if u get 2 kills the team will still lose a 3v2 6. You definitely don't need 10 smoke lineups for every map 3-4 should be enough 7. idk never played premium or hubs always faceit free

2021-01-19 10:47
I prefer aimbotz for aim practice. And for the baiting part, if you feel like you could play better than your teammates and have some more impact later in the round, don't go first, at least if you're not successful at getting entries. If you're at a lower level, your teammates won't even trade you or take the map control you got by pushing.
2021-01-19 10:42
How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? high lvl.. 10lvl.. bruh
2021-01-19 10:44
My two cents: 1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? 1. A. This isn't the important factor that CS players seem to think it is. 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? 2.A. I spend the most amount of time watching my own demos. 9/10 times I say "god what a fucking bot" and it's really easy for me to improve once I know the dumb little things that I do that I need to look out for. Something I do is when i see something I'm doing that is stupid, I write it down and then tally the number of times I see it in all my demos. Now I have this master list of all the dumb stuff I've done and I can see what things I started doing less and what things I have continued to do. This way I can focus on kicking one bad habit at a time. 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? 3.A. Keeping track of enemy team's patterns and habits is super important. Some people have a "6th sense" about this, some people don't. This doesn't make one player "better" than the other. You'll have to find your own way for how you think about enemy rotations and patterns. For this I think watching some pro player's / coaches youtube tutorials might be helpful. Elmapuddy's channel can be a good resource here. 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? 4.A. Everyone has already talked about all this, so I'll leave it. The most important part is consistency. 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? 5.A. If you're an entry player you might want to consider what exactly your team needs out of you for each round. What is your goal? Are you trying to create space early on? Are you trying to get info early on? Think about one goal at a time and think about what you can do to achieve that goal in the most effective way. (note: bottom fragging doesn't mean you aren't helping the team any less. Just make sure whatever you got for your team was worth dying for) 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? 6.A. Being a master at utility usage, both lineups and on-the-fly, is what will separate you from the average players. 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs 7.A. I buy it, I like it
2021-01-19 10:45
Level 10 is a joke nowadays unless it's 3k+ elo. 2,5k across 6 years, got it in like 150 games playing solo. What I can suggest to you - Smokes are not that important, but it's worth to learn a couple of basic T side ones on a few maps (like mirage/inferno). Learning/demo watching is not worth the time if you are not planning to go pro. A nice thing to do is warm up in dm for like 10 mins before the first match of the day. IMO in general the most important part if you want to climb, is to play in chill mode. Faceit is full of wannabe trash kids who think they are the best. Because of that, most losses usually come from teammates raging, having arguments, and being toxic cause they fuck up something themselves and cannot own their own mistakes. Try to be PMA and don't give a shit about things like that, definitely will increase your winrate.

Questions: 1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? --4k, started in 2014 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? --rarely and its not worth it 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? --you should focus on making sure you know where the enemy is at all times, makes it easier 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? --dm is rly not that great in my opinion, it gets boring and repetitive... maybe play a mm as a warmup but 10mins with bot/dm is ok 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? --if you can get 2 kills on entry then sure, but you shouldnt rush in every time... play slow sometimes, go for lurks, camp palace in case they rush then other rounds just run at them 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? --every smoke will be incredibly useful, just the basics will do for rank 10 tho 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs --it doesnt matter really, I got 10 in normal que, hubs and premium players take themselves way too seriously. one more thing: GET FRIENDS DONT SOLOQ it is so so so important that you have at least 1 friend to play with. Someone to flash for you, someone to trade you, someone to step up when you have a bad game, never rely on randoms

1. Around 4000 hours across 4 years to play. It took me about 1300 games on faceit to be comfortable in lvl 10 environment (2500 elo atm), 17 years old 2. I do watch pro demos/game analysis, sometimes my own demos as well, if I want to get a look into why I lost a certain game - what went wrong 3. You need to learn that, it becomes natural the more you play. If you keep track of all that you can then adapt to the playstyle of the opponents 4. I do DM/aimbotz mostly, I also play retake servers. Aim comes with the time you put in-game if you know the basics of aiming, also movement is very important 5. Please do not bait, you have to learn to play with your teammates, even if their play is wrong, do NOT bait them, try to help and win as a team. You have to combine utility with active participation in the round 6. You should know the basic smokes on all the maps, the more you know the better. I would say learn flash lineups too, they are sometimes more important than smokes 7. I do have premium now, but did not buy it until i was in lvl 10 because you get to play against fullstacks all the time. It is up to you, but at a certain point, i would say its better to have premium than play free

1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? I am 17 yo(almost 18). 4500-5000h ~5-6years. After 1000-1500h i was global and then, after 2500-3000 i was 10lvl. RN im 2760(2820 peak) 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? No, but it is very cool thing that can help u a lot in my opinion. It is shame on me that im so lazy to wath some demos :/ 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? Yea, of course u should listen info and communicate well with your mates. But, sometimes i can feal what opponent will do and i will easily overplay him. 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? I play deathmatch for fun sometimes nad before my games on faceit. It could be around 15-30 minutes. not more. 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? Dont bait anyone. bro. First of all, it is only a game and you are not professional player. You can do mistakes such as no trade frag or something else. With time you will feel game better and you will trade your mate 4sure.(NEVER BE TOXIC) About utility, idk tbh, you should communicate with yours mate about nades. 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? Bruh, I know only ~10 smokes overall tbh. But you should learn atleast default smokes on basic maps (mirage/inferno) 10 T smokes for each map will be perfect. 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs. I never bought Faceit premium, i cant answer to you on this question. Only one thing what i really need it is Faceit points to change my nick :) P.S. For myself, i can say, that sometimes i can fell, that im in game and it is like... everything is slower and it is easier to play. You can concentrate better on your crosshair and instantly understand what is happening on the map and make the right decisions without fear. P.S.S ONE IMPORTANT THING: i am always playing solo and i get 10 lvl solo as well. P.S.S.S. 60hz monitor, default ping is 100-120.

1: 7 years and 4-5k 2: Yes, i watch my own demos but not my fov, like when i died in any round i watch it from other players fov to how to prevent it. 3: If you are a team really team not like lvl10 scums that run n gun you can follow the game but otherwise you just run n gun. Depends on team. 4: No dm. Dm for losers. 5: If your team is ok with that. 6: Smoke lives matter. 7: Premium worth, actually never think of that.

I have 3k hours over the course of 3-4 years I have no idea about the matches but i reached lvl 10 as a 17 year old. I'm currently 18 I don't watch my own demos however when i lose a game i try to think of what went wrong and what i could've done to win. I don't keep track of opponents. My brain does it automatically. Deathmatch imo is the best way to practice aim. But u don't need to do it for more than an hour pr day. I probably spend 30 minutes max per day. I think entrying is the way to go. That way you decide the outcome of the fights and therefore who wins. Try to rely on teammates as little as possible. Smoke lineups are overrated. U need to know the essential one's like window smoke mirage etc Faceit premium is not worth the money. Buy ECL instead

1. 4100h+-1000h on other accs 2500elo for 300 games on first acc and 3100elo for 700 games on main acc 21yo 2. yeah u need it 3. so its like 50/50 if u feeling that and you playing simple pug yeah u can play with intuition but if u playing with a game plan no u should listen ur mates and keep tracking of info its gonna be better 4. by honest no, i need only little bit warmup before game but its very individual and in global u should play a lot of deathmatch and aim rutine to get good aim. 5. if u are playing better in the trade situations and its helping u to win rounds so yeah u should little bit baiting ur mates for better individual plays 6. this not so important in pugs but anyway its gonna help you very much, if u playing in team so u should know like every smoke and pop flashes 7. i got my elo with playing not to much games only on prime faceit, its worth that

1) 3 years on this acc, 2400 hours (only solo). Got 10 lvl when i had 1300-1500 hours like 1.5 years ago, now I’m not playing. IDK how many, more than 400 matches. I was 17 when i got it. I had 2320 elo on peak and 1.18 k/d. 2) i don’t watch my demos, only watching tier 1-2 teams and some players, that are playing on my positions (awp/rifle). 3) following defolt positions checks and then trying to play by info. Sometimes, in clutches, listening to the teammates. 4) i have Aim Lab to practice (287 hours played) and ofc dm/arena. But I can play one game mm and then ready to play. 5) I was not using any utilities until i reach 7 level. Just defolt flashes and smokes. Then, If u have problems u have to understand what are u doing wrong. 6) u have to learn defolts, u’re not prof player. I’m playing mirage, inferno, nuke, cache and I just have learnt by practicing all defolt smokes, fires, flashes and some lifehack grenades. 7) u can play standart and prem, I just bought prem bc i’m playing only 4 maps and queing standart search.

1. 4200 hrs since 2015, 700 matches to 10lvl, 19yo. 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? Barely. 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? Second. 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? I just kill 500 bots and play 30 min retake. 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? U just need to do ur role, if u can openfrag well, do it, if no, play more passive and trade. 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? I know about 5-10 smokes for each side on every map, its enough for 2k elo. 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs Idk, I personally play only non-prem solo-q (sometimes party).
2021-01-19 11:24
when i startup pc im playing few osu maps just to adapt,then im spending around 20-25 min to play trainging_aim_csgo2 and fast aim_reflex training,its pretty enough to be prepared for the game,u r not tired or exhausted,u joining the server with clear mind,my tip is dont be nervous about ur aiming and dont focus way too much on aim,if u focus on aiming u can think cold during the match,so just relax and think where enemies could be,try to predict there movement and over time u will succeed
2021-01-19 11:24
i got 400 matches in faceit, the last 100 made me lvl 10. all you got to do is play in a hub. about thw questions you asked, you have to train your aim but 1 hrs of dm is too much, you should be confy with ur aim before 10 or 20 mins playing dm. the more smokes and flashes u know its better, but lvl 10 is easy to get if you just have good aim and decent game sense
2021-01-19 11:28
Have 1.8k hours since 2014 and I'm LEM/Level 5 (don't play faceit really, 200 games) and it really bothers me that there are people with the same level but double amount of hours. It doesn't help that they are toxic and bad team players. So I'd suggest to play it while you enjoy the game (as I have lost my passion for it, therefor lost any wish to play on faceit. Would have had good pc during the years I wanted to play the most, maybe would have reached something better). I'd suggest playing with premade or atleast 2 other friends/known players as going soloq is an rng element.
2021-01-19 11:32
1. i have 500 hours these 2 last years 2. no 3. i just play and i carry 4. aim_botz 1 hour before match 5. yes :D 6. only if you want execute 7. no
2021-01-19 11:49
1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? I have 6100 hours and i started in late 2014 and i just turned 20 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? I wouldn't recommend it if you are just looking to get higher level in Faceit, a waste of time to watch your own demos and pro demos you can watch to learn new spots or smokes but you won't learn much to use in Faceit especially in soloQ 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? I think it's important to actively think about some of these things but a lot of it will end up being stuff you don't think about but just know, like the timing of enemy rotations and such 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? It's more about your consistency in training rather than your time used. Of course you will see a faster increase in skill if you deathmatch 3 hours a day instead of 1 hour. Find a good routine and stick with it and you will see results. 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? It depends, in level 10 you can just ask your team to trade you when you go together and they will probably trade you. The most important part of level 10 and cs in general is to just not be toxic to your teammates. 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? It's not important but it might help you out. Also some teammates might tilt on you for not knowing the obvious and most used lineups 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs If you want to soloQ to level 10 then premium is basically needed if you don't want to meet insane 5-stack teams that will rip you apart most of the time. Hope it helps :)

5.5k hours in 6 years. Got lvl 10 after 5 years of playing and like 800 games now 2300 elo. I watch my demos sometimes you will learn your mistakes easier and can avoid doing them in future. I also watch pro games and try to adapt things from pros to my playstyle. Having much info and knowing where enemies might be will make the game easier for you. I like to get my hands warm by playing kz and bit of dm. You should find your own way of warming up. Baiting is not worth it will tilt most faceit players. You should just try to combine using utility and playing with the team. You dont need to know 10 smokes in every map but it's easier to play in different situations if you know many different nades. I would say premium is worth after you hit lvl 8 before that is worse then free. You should try to find some people to play with. Grinding elo with stack is much easier.

change flag from UK to Denmark = automatically 10 lvl
2021-01-19 12:05
I reached 2400 by soloq My only advise would be is to start understanding that every game u start is 50/50 win or loss. Just keep playing and grinding elo and do not tilt if u lose another 25 elo. No one really cares, it s only a numbers. Practice aim botz 20-30 min a day, 100-150 kills on hsdm will do the thing for u

1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? 5200 hours since 2014. i think it took me around 700 faceit matches. It depends on at what level you start playing faceit. 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? I watch my own demos at times but i usually just pick up ideas from pro matches. 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? Yes, this is crucial. I think i forced my self to do calls for the teams based on information just to learn how to react to it 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? Probably yes. I am at that point where my aim is really solid and i don't think much more progress can happen there. Decision making and positioning is what i work on mostly now 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? I think communicating peaks with a teamplayer and ask them to directly trade or get traded will help you a lot but this does not happen often with 5 randoms playing. 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? Its not crucial but can be game changing if you only win rounds with smoke dependent executes 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs Yes buy premium and if you have any local hubs that could be nice
2021-01-19 13:06
My recent thread about the possibilities of solo climbing to lvl 10 has inspired me to pursue it, so I'm just going to ask a few questions to the better players among you guys and see if i can improve as currently I'm MGE with 1.6k hours in the game. Questions: 1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs Thanks in advance for any answers
2021-01-19 15:22
1. 3k since 2013, 300 games on main, 90 on smurf (faceit, i obviously have more) 2. no, but I used to watch pro cs 3. Everything game-sense wise is really easy for me, i am the smartest man in every game 4. you don't need better aim, i don't practice, i just play whenever i feel like doing it and i pretty much always top frag. the aiming in this game is just understanding of the mechanics, most of it is not even done with your mouse. you don't win duels in this game by outaiming people which is why players like rez are trash and players like krimz are gods. you need to have good crosshair placement and knowledge 5. I throw nades, entry into the site, trade once the site is taken and clutch the round. this is what a good player does. no such thing as "me support i throw nades, i don't get kills cuz no bait". you should always be the best fragger while baiting FOR your team. the baiters in this game are usually the ones on the bottom of the scoreboard because their baiting doesn't come from the same place device's and cold's does, it comes from them not being able to play the game. they don't want to bait but they are too shit at the game to know what they should do. 6. not important for pugs, i couldn't care less about knowing all the smokes. 7. It's only worth if you know you will play 40 games a month, otherwise no. but then again, playing 40+ games won't make you a better player. the only thing that makes you a better player is being smart.
2021-01-19 15:36
Before I answer these, you have to remember: everyone is different and for example, you might need to warm up a little bit more so you can get used before a match or for example flick like for 10 minutes longer than someone else. It's all about how you feel before you start a match. Also, most of these questions will be dependant on a situation. 1. How many hours do you have spread across how many years? + how many matches did it take you to get to a high level and how old are you? - In csgo, around 5k, started around 2014. Back then I wasn't paying that much attention to my playstyle, it was all about having fun, just in like recent years 2019-20-21 I decided to step up. 2. Do you watch your own demos back or Pro demos ? - It depends on situation. Meanwhile you play and you spot something attracting your attention, for example, an amazing smoke for X position, or oneway smoke for Y position, it's worth to check it out so you can use it later on. Or for example, you died so many times where you thought you could easily make 4k. I did that a few times and it turned around I've had a bad timing 4 rounds in a row, where enemy was just waiting behind the corner. Also worth checking it out in this case. 3. When in-game do you actively keep track of info and the opponents positions/rotates or do you just play and intuitively think about these things? - Well, hard question. It would take me too long to write all my thoughts on it, so I'll skip it. 4. To get better Aim do you need to play deathmatch for more than one hour because i heard that you just need to play lot and eventually you'll get better aim? - For someone who has like 1-2k hours, dm is a must. Remember, playing more doesn't necessarily mean it's better, if you dm for like an hour, you become tired pretty easily, I do it differently - For example, always do minimum of 40 kills, if I have like 2 kd ratio (40/20), well, move on the match, nothing for me to do here, if I have shit stats like (40/68), well, it's not a good idea to play a match either. So it's good to take a moment and sit a little more on a dm. 5. I often entry or throw utility and i don't really get trade frags, is it worth baiting a bit more without being a negative to your team? - If you play solo and your level is below 8 and IF YOU KNOW what you are doing - yes. But you have to do it properly. Otherwise you'll create toxicity in your team and that will lose your match aswell. 6. How important is knowing smoke lineups? it it worth knowing 10 T side smokes for each map? - Depends on your role. If you're an entryfragger, basics smokes will do it. Even 1 for T side and one for CT side. If you like to give calls in your team, knowing more smokes is ofcourse better, because you're leading your team up, setting them up properly and giving them the best circumstances to do the job. 7. Is it worth buying Faceit premium + should I play standard que or hubs - I don't know, I've reached lv 10 without faceit premium, yet I've heard there are less toxic players on premium. Good luck.
