After 6500h, I have no more dopamine which is secreted in my brain when I play, and even when I WIN, when I take a KILL for example, when I put an HS, I take no pleasure, I feel nothing, it has become a chore, time-consuming and repetitive, it has become a part-time unpaid job, I play for elo, not for the game itself, I think I'll stop personally. Those who have stopped, what do you play now? Is your life better?

Ngl i cant play valorant without falling asleep same with CS both so boring
2021-02-28 21:42
I tried Valorant, I have no satisfaction at frag on this game... The game is boring... But anyway, I think it's not just CSGO, it's the competitive games in themselves that I got tired of it

2021-02-28 21:40
felt it
2021-02-28 21:40
I can't stop. There's no better feeling than winning a clutch, or getting sick entries. No game will ever come close. Maybe Valorant a bit, but it is too gimicky.

You will enjoy it again after 1-3 months break

maybe just stop game in general? 6500h u could put elsewhere?
2021-02-28 21:59
its called ,,I have reached everything I ever wanted " (in cs) same as me, after reaching lvl 10 on faceit i lost a motivation to play and everything became boring, now i play it only for fun with friends when doing missions, or i just chill at surf/kz/hns servers, but no more tryhard, cuz its really exhausting and you lose a joy by tryharding all the time -now maybe try some other games, or even better, try something irl (some sport, activity) for example I started doing caliathletics, im not even close to being good, but i do it because i like it and still have many things to learn/reach

Been playing Ets2 and Fallout new Vegas but like 5-6 hours per week just to relax. Overall studying more, practicing English as well as getting ready for the final uni year and diploma. I just hope to one day get out of Russia. If u are quitting Cs u gonna have a lot of free time. Maybe try to learn a new language or smth

Idk tbh I'm just too tired to play Cs even if I have free time. Had a brief period when I played for like 2 weeks in March when corona isolation started because I couldn't go to the gym and had to get some adrenaline and emotions. l mostly played Cs just to get adrenaline and hype from winning clutches and close games but once I started going to gym, working hard there and seeing results I stopped playing Cs 6-7 hours a day like I used to. Then started to study harder at uni (cuz it's getting closer to diploma) and realised that if I continue CS I'll waste my time. Already 21 and never gonna be close to pro scene level, not gonna be a streamer or YouTuber cuz no charisma therefore no money to be gained from playing Cs. And having lost passion for the game and getting no emotions from playing it, having realised the above statement I came to the conclusion that playing Cs is a waste of time and I'm better off just studying harder and having a chance to move to 1st world country. That's my motivation today and a goal to work towards. Overall I don't feel useless anymore, I feel like Im becoming better, learning smth new every day and getting closer to my goal. Maybe I'll play Cs with friends in the future but just for fun

I don't play games at all and I just follow NaVi, watching some of their matches. Life is kinda better , bc i have much more time to do other things. What really has changed is my mood. Most of the times after playing CS i was so exhausted and tilted that I couldn't even communicate with anybody else. I was very aggressive and toxic towards everybody. Now i'm always relaxed and open for a conversation

+1 people are so toxic in csgo which impacts your game aswell. Even tho sometimes I get toxic aswell. Thats why I dont like playing csgo anymore, its make you depressed. And whenever I play, I try to play without carring much about it. And thats why I try to play as less as possible even tho csgo is a drug :D

tbh I do not know. I enjoy csgo alot but sometimes it tilts me and make me feel so fucking sad. Thats why I just play very less and when I feel like I am not enjoying it, I will just watch something else. But dont take it negatively, your name is very negative. Negative energy brings negative vibes and this is a fact. If you dont feel like playing, just dont play and do something what you really want to do.

The concern being that CS GO is a game requiring regularity, if I stop playing, I lose all my skill and consistency, so if I stop playing, it must be final.

you wont lose skill, I have tried alot of times. You actually play really good for some days but then you start getting rusty. But then you have to dm a bit. And your skill is back. And you actually want to play cs.

I went hardcore on PUBG the first year and so, until they started becoming too much unfriendly to players and were taking idiot decisions and letting the hacker problem go rampant. Now I started playing MMO's again, and RPG's. Sometimes I play CSGO with a friend of mine but we are trying to reach silver one, something we were never before. But it is mostly trolling

Yes because you spending so much time but still not progressing at pro scene. If you want to become pro , you need to grind more efficent. Watch pro's demos and learn movements , cross placements, nade usage etc..
2021-02-28 22:18
You won't get this just be switching to another game, maybe stay away from competitive games for a while or even better any game. Do something else, drawing, reading, learning a new skill. Also watching pro games for a while makes me want to play again,

But u prob gonna need to fill that void with smth else cuz after some time u gonna want to compete or 'prove yourself' or even just get some adrenaline. That's why ppl come back to comp games. Try going to gym or smth cuz mens need to compete and become better, we want to risk and get emotions from winning, it's in our nature unfortunately.

I've been playing for 20 years. I still enjoy hanging out with my friends and destroying noobs with the green gun putting up big numbers. I only play 5 faceit games a week max and a bit of DM to not be too much out of shape and I enjoy it. Do you play with friends or just soloQ ?
2021-02-28 22:46
I don't really play one main game anymore like I used to with CS. At the moment I've mostly been playing cold war because I bought it on sale, but aside from that I've playing battlefront 2, apex : legends, overwatch(only with friends), and on occasion games PUBG/TF2/battlefield. I don't really know if I'm happier as some of these games make me 10x more angry than CS ever has, but I definitely feel less burnt out on CS. I still play CS like once or twice a week and I play like 2 - 3 games.

2021-03-01 00:00
That happens when you start taking the game too seriously. It's allways the same for me too, i start a new game, i start having fun but after getting very good at it i start taking it more seriously and i just stop having fun. Then everything in it starts pissing me off. At this point you either try to go pro or just start playing something else, because if you're not having fun then there's no point in playing at all.
