Hi HLTV since Ancient came out i played it non stop for the reason because i came from 1.6 and reminded me Aztec. I fell in love with the map and played it 201 times in competitive scrmmage and lots of hours spent to find good timings nades etc. I was 100% sure it would be put in the competitive pool. And was also 100% would replace mirage. This was Valve plan but for some reason to me Unkown they went for train maybe for pure statics. I told it to every player i met in the game to practice it because soon it will be in. Ancient might look stunning in the beginning but i truly believe will be one of the most played maps in CSGO history if Valve show a bit of love and brain. Saying so because they chose to modify A site and now its a mess, the previous version was great, almost perfect. Obviously, they will rework it (hopefully) Anyway, the purpose of this thread is to help. I might be the guy who played the map the most out there. And know every trick on it. If you got any question, feel free to ask.

Do you also know about the trick where you can boost over the skybox and see whole map from God's perspective?

That is not intended, you can but will take too much man power and will get fixed the next days. This is valve first they let it in and think about it later.

Why?

Ct can take A long with a smoke and flash with their best spawn. The ts can't even enter a long if done correctly. If you lose long A site can be played with tons of crossfires or even super passive by just hiding to deny plant. The ts can't even plant safe its wide open. You die from everywhere. Assuming you play 2 a 1 mid. And support each other. You can play it as you wish aggressive passive it will always pay out if it's done correctly and if your mid guy don't just die to fast. Previous version was balanced for the fact that there were 2 spots on a to smoke to plant. And no weird angles almost impossible to clear. We had Connector from mid and ct. Now you have 2 more connectors coming from ct. One facing site 1 facing long. So basically 3 connectors, CT open and flank to worry. I would never go A personally at this point its suicide if you play vs people who understand the map.
2021-05-04 11:53
A is hard to attack. One smoke, one molly basically camcels an a rush... Also there are too many deep angles you have to smoke off, an awper can literally watch a from ct spawn

A-site was obnoxious to defend, what are you talking about? It's still is actually
2021-05-04 10:50
8 replies
You are doing it wrong. Reasons why> You can play A with 2 defenders. The ct with the best spawn can push the connector that connects Tside with A or lets call it A long. With the best spawn you can smoke flash it and take control. The ts will still be outside stairs with their best spawn. Without good spawn you can boost 1 guy on A, and lose long doesnt matter much. 1 player boost and other player mid connector or on the new connector window facing long or behind site to play crossfire or bait for the boosted player. A its open if you play also passive you can deny a plant always. Since no place to plant safe and you literally need 4 smokes to cover all and couple of mollies. You can simple also play con mid and con site and deny any plant and get free kills with calibrated team work.

2021-05-04 10:59
So A site is CT sided and B site is T sided right ? Who do you think has the advantage on middle ? I think CTs
2021-05-04 11:15
8 replies
Correct A site heavy CT sided. B site T sided. you can just go b if its done correctly and win the game. You can wait a bit and fully execute once the ct have low Nades from outside door. In the middle the previous map the ct had the advantage 1 smoke 1 flash enough to block tunnel mid jump on balcony and stop mid and b pushes. On the current version mid is more open and this gives ts more aggressivity so its harder to do stop it you need a perfect smoke lineup, fast one and more than 1 flash and still will not fully stop the ts, since the tunnel is too wide and they can also boost on corner to see above. Right now mid its T sided for the fact that you can flash from t spawn at around 1:49 and blind whole ct watching mid and you can't avoid the flash coming from t side, you dont even see it. Obviously someone have to flash. Or you can do it yourself by bouncing it in the middle. You can also smoke top mid as t asap the round start. You can smoke connector left side. So i strongly think mid will be t sided for people playing in a team. Solo q its an other discussion.

idk I think mid is more advantagous for CTs because you can sometimes only see the head of the guy upstairs at the door or a tiny pixel of him, he can quickly dodge fire so get 1 kill with awp, fall back, repeat. sure you can flash but most people can't do it, or miss the timing. I just throw it over the wall when I'm close but the ones at the door just fall back so only really optimal for people being at the stairs or really close. Havent played after changes yet though. The little corner is also not that easy to clear since someone can be at the left side as well.

no. You have to go 3 guys mid if you want to take it. Some guy is always close and pop flashes himself in, just no use going mid from the t spawn if you are at risk of losing 3 guys there.

What are the default CT positions? Like obviously the AWP is rotation, you will have b anchor and a anchor. Looking to get into acient with semi-pro team at top level I was curious if its like overpass where AWP always goes one site, or more like inferno where you can play anywhere with it? And where do the other two rotations play?
2021-05-04 12:17
2 replies
CT default should be 2b 1mid 2a ( 1 b guy hold ramp, 1 pushes con) ( the mid player can smoke bottom mid and play passive play for info or play from connector A holding balcony and mid ) and the (2 players on A have too much options to work together as they feel comfortable) If you play 2 2 1. You can try to take mid as 2 by smoking tunnel nading mollying it etc and jump balcony and stop b rush/control and obviously control mid to only rotate fast a from big connector. You can play awp everywhere in Ancient as CT. You can play it towards B ramp, you can play it Mid, you can play it A almost everywhere.

You could but if the ct decide to Molly Nade, you coming from ramp you would eat them easily. 99% of the time i personally pushed people missed their timing with molotov and nade but if done correctly could stop a push.
