I went from native (16:9) to 4:3 stretched, been hitting 1-deags ever since
Every time I try 16:9 I come back to 4:3 under 2 days.
I switched from 1440x1080 to 1920x1080 for about a month and didn't really notice a difference. Them switched back to 4:3 and I instantly got better results.
watch docc 2 on youtube.
res doesn't matter.
He gets 42 kills on 4:3 and 42 kills on 16:9
It's game sense + natural aim + reading opponents better for farming kills.
People even today have bad pc's thus they still play on 1024x768 BB or 800x600 bb.
Dot crosshair on 1920 looks like shit
Background is too detailed
No thanks, 1280 best
I used 16:9 for the first 2k hours and then I wanted to give 4:3 a chance and ended up liking it more. But as you said, they both have their own advantages and disadvantages. Neither is better than the other and in the end it just comes down to personal preference, playstyle and a few other things.
I still recommend everyone to try different things and give them a chance. You never know, you might find something that you like more. :)
I tryed it but only for 30 Minutes because i had an 99Liga Match (German CSGO Tournament) right after that so i swithced back. But when the season play-in ends this Sunday ill try it again for a week or so
no, I aint betraying 800x600 gang 😎
idk, i feel like there're way too many 4:3 moments (on streams) for me to play that resolution.. and personally when i tried 4:3 it just felt waaay too weird, not talking about movement or anything like that but actual graphics...
Regarding pros and cons - it's depending on the playstyle, sure there might be smaller heads and long range duels might be an issue, but at the same time you don't need to take long range duels if you're behind your opponents before they're even ready for execution on the site
ofc its better for enemies to be slower, you re not on ovewatch flicking on a genji wall running about you, its a tactical game, 16:9 >>>
surprisingly i increased my 4:3 HS 40% to 65% on 16:10 and long range duels are easier you just feel more confident also considering the visuals are better , i found the spray bit weird on 16:10 but overall everything you said its right. The reason i play 4:3 its the flicks are insane specially awp and sprays are mega ez even on long distance such as d2 (goose) to long (pit)
I switched to 16:10 after 5 years of playing 16:9, overall I think I'm slightly better at aiming with rifles and pistols now
I practically abuse 4:3 stretched since my monitor isn't big.
Also since my reflexes are shit or crooked (like using 0.1% of my brain throughout the whole pandemic has made me numb), for some reason it's easier to hold angles on 16:9 with an AWP since the enemies move slower (though I have been improving lately on 4:3)
men i switched prob like 8x back to 16:9 and every time i switch back to 4:3
tried 16:10 a week ago, felt really nice but am back on 4:3 now
btw if you play 4:3 play 1440x1080, it will basically be full HD but then stretched and not blurry
I actually like 16:10. It's kind of a mix of both. You don't get 4:3 moments or the full stretch. You get a nice half stretch and essentially the same game speed.
Think it's personally the best but really it's whatever you are used to.
Only thing that sucks is we play on LCD screens generally tbh. Even the best have ghosting and artifacts and literally nothing will ever change that. It's inherent to the technology.
That weird feeling with flicking can be solved by modifying your sens, from 4:3 stretched you put your sens a bit higher, I guess you should multiplicate your sens by 1.18 and feeling should be very similar
only reason people played 4:3 was because old habits.. now there is literally 0 point in playing 4:3
I did 4:3 for 4 years, half a year ago I switched to 16:10 and its so much better. Hardest part was adjusting the spray control but that came easily within a few weeks.
Objective aspect ratio tierlist:
S tier - 5:4
A tier - 16:9
B tier - 4:3 stretched, 16:10
D - 1:1
F - 4:3 blackbars
If you have 21:9 monitor try 16:9 stretched.
You arent a real g unless you try 1080×1080 for atleast a week
I have always played in 16:9, for years, I often change too, so I can play in both resolutions without worries, there is a placebo effect to change to believe strong in one in the other too, it's only a question of comfort but there are also advantages and disadvantages.
In 16:9 it is in HD, everything is much clearer, hitboxes slower.
In 4:3 it might be subjective but I find crosshairs more "pleasant", that's why I play in 4:3 now, I also rifle better in 4:3, I have no problem with HS with pistol in 16:9 but I have more trouble with the AK/M4.
It's just a matter of feeling I think
