If you don't get boosted from CT spawn to short, it's pretty hard to get it, if nobody covers short from mid doors.

If you get even 1 kill before dying then it should be easy retake unless you play with nubs
2021-02-25 12:38
Just take it easy if you play solo b. Save your utility and throw them when you hear enemies and try to save molly, flash or atleast grenade for their execute to slow them. Your only job is staying alive so long that your teammates come to help you and if you die and you can take 1-2 terrorist with you, you have done ur job. It is hard to play solo b, but you have to realize that you usually cannot stop the whole enemy team rush, just slow them and give them lot of damage.

You need good teammates for it to be a high fragging position, if your outside player is weak then you need to focus on outside whilst also being wary about getting killed from behind from squeaky while also taking into account they can just exec A.

If someone holds long then it’s not a big deal. If you are alone or long is open then don’t even bother to to go in toilets
2021-02-25 10:55
Anywhere on Train. I feel like you are always visible from somewhere and you have to have good communication with your teammates to know what is actually being watched and where you can die from.

I Say Nuke B-Site
2021-02-25 08:08
D2: Long (on CT side without good spawn) Holding CT from rushing CT to B Entering B from upper tunnels or A from short as a T side *Retaking B Inferno: Banana on CT side Top mid alone on CT Retaking both sites Mirage: Retaking B from Market Pushing short from mid without conn covered Pushing conn from mid without short covered Apex, A site, on CT side Overpass: Long toilets as a CT Entering A site as a T Pushing monster without clearing Barrels before *Retaking A without teammate flanking mid/long Train: Literally every push from T side is 50/50 most of the time (espacially going Ivy or Pop Dog) Nuke: Holding A from site *Retaking both sites without much time (especially without defuse kit) Cache: Taking mid control on T side without "headshot machine" player Holding B without "crossfire" on CT *Retaking B with players coming only from Tree Room/Heaven Cbble: Playing on T site is a pain in the ass. This map needs rework

I mean, B on mirage inst this bad, but you see the enemies 2/15 rounds and, you know, hard to carry your team when you play this pos. I feel myself uncomfortable on Apps inferno (CT), so I always play passive, like Balcony/Pit/Site.

its the best position to play on mirage so much fun and very impactful, youre mainly holding under and short while supporting a if needed. B site makes me want to go to sleep, nothing will happen for 5 rounds, if your team can hold mid/a youre not needed if they cant youre rotating into unwinable retakes. Then all of a sudden Ts will rush B you'll get 1 kill maybe 2 and die. I played an mm match last night, I got 3 kills in total on ct side because my team was winning, I felt inconsequential to our success in that half.

I don't know why but my brain is physically not big enough to play around bathrooms on Overpass. The entire time I feel like I'm about to get peeked from 7 different angles at once so I just end up taking one shot and falling back to site. I'm a lot more comfortable on the B side of the map.

2021-02-25 17:38
As an anchor for my team, I mostly play the B site in all maps (except Inferno - Apps and Nuke - Ramp) and I personally hate defending monster on overpass. You pretty much get blind if you're in the monster side. If you're barrels you will get HS or mollied (you're dead if you don't have smoke) and pillar is unconfortable because the angles favor the T's and you can get shot from short and monster.
