I don't know man, I've always used my thumb and thought it was the most logical one to use and now I'm questioning the universe

I assume you are using your left hand on the keyboard and right hand on mouse. or are you like mouse left handed? If then it makes sense if not you have problem men your thumb is not in the right place.

No no, traditional left hand on keyboard right hand on mouse. I also shift with my thumb. I don't know does playing KZ and HNS in 1.6 have something to do with it because I've pretty much always had jumping on the scroll wheel so never used space to jump... Don't know mens I need counseling...

Like I don't hold my thumb there, so I move it there when I need to duck or shift. It felt natural when I was a kid and still does. Maybe it's the fact I don't tilt my keyboard? Because the only way I see the pinky being the option is when the keyboard is tilted

I mean if it works it works I guess. maybe your thumb is more flexible than mine. I dont tilt keyboard either lul. There is no reason to tilt them tbh unless you cant afford to buy a decent size desk (if you cant buy that nowadays idk how you can get a pc good enough to play the game tbh).

I am confused. Truly, confused. Maybe my fingers are longer and it makes it more sensible but I've done it since I was a child, I'm perplexed. And yeah, that's the reason many people play with tilted keyboards, also on LANs you didn't have the most space so you had to tilt it, but some people manage to play this game on 30fps and still be high level FACEIT players, everything is possible.
2021-10-21 21:51

well we arent in the 2005 stone ages anymore so hopefully no one still has to tilt it. Maybe the 30fps is true but everyone has a decent sized table I would like to think. I didnt think about the fact that you may be much taller than I (arab genes ): compared to finnish 2m tall genes) so you have long thumbs.

Yeah it's not bad to be average height, I'd rather actually lose the 10cm than be 195. Only benefit of being this tall is the fact I can easily see things on the top shelf and grab em. And apparently to duck with thumb)

People tilt their keyboard to more easily reach keys above the space bar with their thumb. Not because "they can't afford a nice desk." Grow up

Tilting the keyboard is more comfortable for me as I imagine it is for a lot of people.

Can you MS paint how this works? I'm having trouble visualizing. Do you just take your fingers off every key to hit shift and ctrl with your thumb? Or tuck it in under your palm and press your thumb's nail into shift and ctrl?

i use my palm too... i think it has to do with how you position your arm, i'm lazy so my arm is always fully rested on the desk and i never lift it, that makes it difficult to reach ctrl with your pinky so i unconciously started using my palm instead.

When I'm just playing normally, I keep my thumb on space, since I dislike jumping with the mouse.

That seems hard af xd

Yea, and I can't imagine doing that movement, as I said, seems hard :P I never understood why of the jump throw bind tbh, I just jump and throw at the same time, it usually works :). For the grenades I just click 4 till I get it, or I use the mouse scroll. I don't have any binds on C and V now that I think about it, maybe if I try that challenge again I'll do something with these keys !

Binds are always useful, I have a bind for every nade essentially, C for smoke, MOUSE3 for molly, MOUSE4 for flash and if I have a nade I just click 4 because its the first that pops up. Also there's a chance you might misstime your jump throw, even a 0.1s miss will fail it in some way, and its just easy to click one thing and it does it automatically for you, so its just easy. Go on with the binds, there's a lot you can do with them!

imagine you are ant, and your walking down my pinky finger, as soon as you come out of the finger you will find bone, I use that bone to crouch/duck

ouch i have tried to replicate your style but i feel i will injure my thumb doing that frequently.Try my way its much more safe. My middle finger is on W or S My ring finger is on A My index finger is on D My thumb is on C when i walk and spacebar when i jump Mylittle finger is in relaxed position above the shift key and when i want to crouch i position it to ctrl button

Its like this. My thumb and my index fingers are used a lot! From W to T, I use my index finger. For the two rows below, I use my thumb and occasionally my index finger as well. I sometimes use my middle finger for W and shift me ring finger to q, Tab etc and Use my pinky then. But that's usually for games like Dota 2 and not CSGO. Especially when I play Micro intensive heroes like Meepo and Heroes that use a lot of abilities like Morphling or Rubick.
