Anything, like hanging out (get people and friends asap), do sports or go swim, start an activity (like reading or maybe just learning how to play chess for example), take a walk by your city. Idk, there are lots of things.

Maybe get a normal job because leaving cs is not that easy. You need something serious and demanding to stop gaming.

2021-03-31 14:22
mens at 27 your chances of becoming pro in cs are literally nonexistent. You are not interested in anything else because you've yet to find your next passion, just make a list of things you are definitely not interested in, things that you like and things you never tried and might like. Then keep trying new things you might like until you land into something that will stick. But hte first step is to realise you're wasting your life with cs, uninstall and dont play it for at least a month. It becomes easier later, I've been through the same thing
2021-03-31 09:57
CS or whatever isn't the problem, but finding a goal is. In lack of purpose of course you're gonna side with thing that can substitute that.

+1, Gamer addict right here. I almost fucked up my education cos I was just gaming all day (competitive online games mostly). The problem was that gaming did not give my brain time to think about anything else, so I did not manage to generate any long time goals. During that time period (maybe 5 years) when I was doing any other stuff (part time work, school), I was constantly just looking forward to next gaming session. I made some plans on paper what I would do next time I get to game and some meaningless mind exercises etc. I dont know how it happened exactly, there was a breakup from relationship and some depression, moving to new place, but somehow I got a little healthier relationship with gaming and now I have good paying job and I'm able to play let's say max 1-2 hours a day after work with no regrets or thinking constantly about gaming. Maybe during some weekends more if nothing else to do, I might play longer periods. Now I got good paying job and a better balanced life with actual life goals too. My tips for OP 1. If you are not going to become a pro, gaming should not be priority, for me priorities go something like this right now - Work - Social life (family friends) - Workout - Gaming (other hobbies) Effectively this means that no matter what i.e. if going to meet family or to workout, I will not skip it cos of gaming. It's a decision I made once and it has lasted surprisingly well 2. Don't play same game all the time, play some single player games too and learn again to like gaming, not just "execute" gaming like robot. For me I had not played single player games at all since childhood, but I encountered Witcher 3 and Sekiro on steam and they took me off online gaming for months. It was very pleasant that you can pause any time and just continue when ever you want or have time. Latest new game was Battlefront 2, which was at the time free in Epic store. So much fun! There was sudden uprising of 16 million new players, me included, because the game was given for free. A total war in a clones vs clankers setting (not all mapsthough), while some swinging lightsabers in the middle. Currently similar kind of momentum is on Valheim to my understanding, but I haven't tried that out yet. 3. Community CS: best thing ever. I was invited to some community and those games are really fun. No ranking ladder just whenever there is 10 people in certain dc channel, select two captains who will veto teams and play games. Everyone trying their best. In these games ive learned so much and have had so much fun. Weird thing is that also my MM csgo rank is higher than ever before, even though I'm playing much less. I think it due to that now that there is less games I play each with more quality (and always a warmup even if just one game). I also think that I view my own game much more objectively and my communication is better. When I was playing all day, I was very angry and frustrated and blaming others during MM. Even my IRL friends. Now I can even lose and laugh about it, this was not possible before. Now I enjoy also following the pro scene (matches, interviews and stuff), before I would think that this would be waste of time (other than maybe watching some short pro demos). Now I'm genuinely interested about what's going on behind the scenes and I think this has increased the quality of my now pleasant hobby called CSGO.

Too late to become pro at 27 anyawy, maybe switch to casual gaming and you might find balance
2021-03-31 10:02
Cheat and get ban, ez u cant comeback EDIT: real life always better than playing game which is giving you no future.

1st of all i think you need to accept that your not going pro without any private cheat! once you get that, you will start to feel the joy on the game again and maybe you will play better and achieve more. What ELO are we talking about? Also if you play faceit solo que, pay for premium because you will get better teammates or at least not toxic in 80% of the games. I've played 1.6 semi pro back in the day and then i leave it because there was no future at that time in Poortugal. Today the guys that i used to play and against, are pros and getting a salary living the life of a gamer that everyone wants. Im 33 and with family and still have to desire to play and normally i play solo que premium arround 2400 ELO that i got playing alone. Dont get me wrong, i actually have a lot of "friends" to play but i just like to play solo q because ppl dont take the L properly and get very salty. Also try to play a few other games, it will help once you get back to CS.

im 37 and winning games past level 10, if you only solo q i would recommend joining ecl hub much less toxic and seems less of a lottery on winning matches because of attitudes on your team. i guess our goals are different if you still are trying to be pro, i just play hoping for nice games with some decent non toxic guys to pass an hour or 2 each day

You're delusional if you think you can't go pro without cheats. Really bad mentality

You can ofc, there is a lot of talent but tbh and i watch a lot of pro matches and most of the upcomers look very fucking fishy, especially arround the scandinavian/CIS scene. For example if you look at Spinx you can see that is has skill and understands how the game works and doing smart moves/plays. But now lets see, s1mple had a vac banned account, zywoo had some pretty fucking skechy clips play fpl when he was on aAa. Sometimes it doesnt actually needs to be a "cheat program", there is some much shit behing the code of this game that most us dont even reallize. Look at the coach bug for how many years ppl actually knew that was a thing, but becauase most of the important events were at lan they didnt care. Now that everything is online, suddenllty is a concern and everyone is banned. Few weeks back a kid that play ESEA premier on NA got banned on faceit "DROID" but no one talks about that.

I'm pretty sure that s1mple got VACd on Counter-Strike not CS:GO otherwise he wouldn't be allowed to play in Valve sponsored events. But seriously you picked the two best players in the world which proved to be monsters in countless LANs... It's obvious they will have sketchy clips, don't tell me you never did anything that someone else would think it's cheating. I'm not denying the existence of cheaters in high level competition, I just think it's really really unlikely.

I'm pretty sure there's plenty of proof online that the ban was on CSGO. There's some days that i'd agreed with you and i think its very unlikely that NOW none of the PROS whithin top 10 Cheats. but like i said, some of the CSGO pros NOW, they cheated is way to pros. Ofc that happened to me as well but very few times in 4000 games on faceit. If you are one the people that think its impossible to cheat on that, then we are done. I dont know in which level you play but if you play atleast above lvl10 you know that sometimes just a single round can win you a game and inside that round, some "extra" info where the positions of the enemy are its a huge advantage. You know that cheats are very sofisticaded nowadays and the one that cheat with money involved are not dumb like "forsaken".

It's not possible if you're like me. Even though I'm not a professional I just love the game and can't stop playing it. I have a suggestion for you. Look for people to play CS in a team environment rather than PUGs. There's nothing better than playing CS when your teammates are all on the same page and you help each other.

The way you're describing your PUGs makes me think you're either playing MM or Faceit free queue. It's hard to find decent players in both of these. Your best bet is to either look for a local community (retake servers for example) or playing Faceit premium.
2021-03-31 10:47
if you're really playing that much then you're 100% gonna find a decent older guy every couple games, maybe even every 10 games it doesn't matter, duoq is much better than soloq trust me. If it's not enough for you, you can add more guys anytime

Hey. I im 26 years old. I had a similar problem. I ended up in depression without any purpose. It took some months with depression before i realised there was much more to this world, and i realised i was addicted. I began to discover things on youtube and told my brain to be very curious about it, i also had a magic mushroom trip (the fungi we are all made off), and it told me how big my ego was. I knew i had to do something, this life wasnt about me, thats not what makes me happy. I then started to work with animals, because in my childhood i was always happy around them. So i thought to myself, why not educate myself to learn about the animals more if thats what makes me happy. So i started doing that and found my purpose and my life is great now, im a better person because i help others, i wake up and do what makes me happy. Think back to your childhood, is there something you really liked, before you got brainwashed?
