4:3/16:9 come

India xEleanorex 
I don't understand why people wanna impose their preference on others, like use what you feel like using, why are you trying to propagate your ratio or look down on other ratios? 4:3 users won't switch to 16:9, even after knowing that Ropz n other pros with godlike aim use 16:9 (vice versa) and we have GNs on hltv trying to convince literally everyone to switch their ratio. (it's a good meme tho)

if you don't use 4:3 then you are SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I could get easily 300fps on max graphs, but this is the best res on ratio for me. maybe the reason is 1.6 and the 800x600 :D

just play 16:10 - 1680x1050 best tradeoff between having stretched player models/overall stretched view but still being able to see 100% of your sides. 4:3 accelerates your mouse sensivity significantly, which can be a downside.

I switched to 16:9 like a month or 2 ago and i played the best cs ive ever played but after a few weeks i couldnt play anymore. Ofc i dont know if it was the res or if i just overplayed the game without having variety in the games i play, but 2 days ago i wanted to take a break but before i head off i ppayed a game on 1280:960 again and i was just running in killing everyone on t side, the game looks mich better on 16:9 but on 4:3/5:4 it felt amoother/easier to focus and hit shots since i dont sit in the monitor

It's all in your head. I used 16:9 since release 2012 until 2019 cause it looked better. Couldn't play 4:3 cause game just looked trash. Changed to 1440x1080 and I can just see better at distance and through the edges of smokes. If you don't have any boomer issues as I do, play whatever you want. You prefer bigger FOV? 16:9, otherwise 4:3. Playing better, worse... all in your head. Only change I do is the colour of my crosshair. If I play shit I change the colour. It reminds myself that I need to get my shit together. Sometimes you also play a lot and play like trash and sometimes you have 20hrs/2 weeks and play like a god. I was afk, came back and was dogshit. Now I have 20hrs/2 weeks and last two days I was fucking insane. No warmup, just come home from work, instaQ and rekt everyone. I am sure end of week I will be garbage again, but it will just my mind playing tricks. Other times I pracc, warmup, have 60hrs and play like shit. It's just in your mind. Stay chill, focus on the game. You will have good games again. If you feel too many emotions, stop playing. Go dm with music. Try again tomorrow with chill attitude. You will have good game again.

Mh sure cs is mostly about the mental but also about what feels best for you, im for example changing my res when im in a slump for a longer time or like to switch crosshairs. Resolution Change is kinda big tho, irs more like sth i do after/ before taking a break from playing to come back and have sth new to look at
2021-03-02 13:40
1280x800 is better
2021-03-03 07:47
1 reply
but it increases ingame sensivity, you'll need to get used to it If you played 16:9 before but with 1680x1050 you have the same feel as with 16:9. But regardless the TO is right, its all preference and everyone needs to find the right solutions for himself, I am just bringing in an option to choose from.

i played 2500 hrs in 4;3 but in 16;9 (3k hrs currently) i feel the game smooth, in 4;3 sometimes it gets too fast and my eyes hurt. I mean it aint hard its just the placebo effect ppl are probably scared. Just gotta play like 2-3 hrs for like 2 days straight dm and retakes and you will adjust fine on 16;9.

To each their own. I prefer playing in 4:3 aspect ratio in 4:3 monitor, likewise for 16:9 or 16:10 monitors. Currently am playing at 1920*1200 16:10 native resolution in external monitor. Pity that I couldnt play in my laptop's 144 Hz display due to fps dipping below 144 Hz. Connecting my external monitor through HDMI increased my fps to 180-280 in Dust2 dm.

True, but I like to play in native resolution. So 1920*1200 it is. I've played 4:3 stretched & black bars before and I hated them. Though I'd like to try 5:4 stretched one day. Idk how it'd look like in 16:10 monitor though.

Device actually moved from 1280x960 black bars to 16:9 1920x1080 because the 4:3 resolution was affecting his eyes. (objects are more pixelated and can be harder to see clearly in 4:3)

yeah it's true but for res like 800x600 or below suffer from pixelated look . From 1024x786 I think graphics are pretty clear if you have MXSAA atleast at x2

as I said, you can try increasing your MXSAA in video settings if you hv a good gpu. Usually, many like so many pros use 1280x960, so I don't think it's that pixelated, or at all imo, but if you feel like it that's your preference and it's completely fine.

it is just preference i play on native, but i used to play on stretched. from my experience, the models move slower, which means easier tracking. although the models are smaller, when you get to a decent level, the difference in size shouldn't matter since microtracking is a lot harder than being precise on a slightly smaller target.

Every smart player knows that if you're all about pros and cons of both resolutions then 16:10 is for you. But if you don't care about it then literally every resolution could suit you

What if I told you that 4:3 players are usually old school, grew up playing fps in the early 2000's when the screens were square. So it's just a habit that came with the hardware at that time. ps: i'm playing 4:3 since 2001
