5/8 controversial. Pretty controversial in HLTV and Reddit, and overall people in CS have mixed opinions about Thoorin. Not higher because there are a lot of people who like him too. 7/8 opinion though. I don't think he is the best analyst, but he surely is a top3 pundit, and his work both at the desk and in his content is great, even if he can be a dumbass on twitter

Yeah that's why I said pundit and not analyst. He can't really talk about stuff in the server in details but he is a good journalist and a great guy to point out good moves.

I don't even think Thorin would put himself in this category. Thorin does a better job establishing stories, and retrieving facts which would make him better as a host.

AWP NOT BALANCE
2021-12-07 06:33
1 reply
AWP is balanced. Most AWPer pros still train for rifling because of the expense of an AWP. $4750 is a large ticket price for 1 hit kill especially when aim masters can take players with an AWP with a nice clean peek. Close range it is also trash unless you have great flicks.
2021-12-07 21:34
it's borderline balanced in competitive, it's not balanced in deathmatch and basically ruins any dm map when few guys only use it. As it's free stat padding weapon in dm. As for pro CS, AWP is the best weapon in the game and people set up their awpers with tons of utility and baiting cause AWP is more likely to kill vs any other weapon. So stats are inflated compared to how they should be, even best awpers will say that.

AWP is better than any other weapon, only reason it's remotely balanced is because of price and utility. Which both do not matter in dm. Meaning no matter how much you "aim better" awp will win more duels than any other weapon. Thought that was obvious but not to all of us I guess.... I do not care for stats in dm but it's shit to play while those stat hungry plebs play 5+ awps.

1 4/8 controversial. Most people know he is a bad IGL (or so I hope) but still there are a bunch of people who think that he all of a sudden learned what he didn't in 3 years. 7/8 take. I believe it is 8/8 but I'm biased, so just 7/8 to be fair 2. 7/8 controversial. Most people think the new vitastralis roster is very promising and better than this one, it's actually a very controversial opinion. 5/8 take. This roster has a good potential, with Kyojin just starting to finally improve, and Mistutaa having a high skill ceilings, but with Shox not getting any better IDK if it should be kept for much longer 3 5/8 controversial. He clearly isn't the best IGL, and everybody thinks that, but most people recognize him being top3, so there's a compromise. 5/8 take for the same reasons. 4 8/8 controversial. 1/8 take

So I passed? If we take it seriously, boombl4, can become a good igl, but he is not good one now. I don't see any reason to make vitality roaster speak not well known language. Just take a time, misuutta was hated at the start, but now he is a decent player, he wasn't been in 3 year academy like bit, he was immediately dropped to tier 1 scene, when b1t was playing only 1 map. I am really think that aleski best igl after Zeus retirement, he really is more than decent, make a strat in 5 sec and tell 4 players what to do is impressive. I mean may be he doesn't find his team, he's pass, like s1mple find a team that can keep up with him, that it makes them strongest team rn, but that doesn't means that they are not bottleneck for s1mple. The last but not least, smooya is 22 y.o when zywwoo is 21 and s1mple with device is 24 and 25 respectively. We saw how much s1mple achieved for 3 years, let's take our time

I would think that if the system works the igl needs to do a lot less work and trust the stratbook.

Could improve his personal performance but I don't think he can do much better strategically

I don't like the randomness involved. If you buff its accuracy it basically becomes a better scout for half the price. But in it's current state good players will just miss sometimes, and bad players will hit shots they should not have hit. I kind of get it, I don't like the niche it fills. But it certainly cant be removed without upsetting a lot of people.
2021-12-08 01:18
no deagle needs to be re buffed, i preferred the old one, no im not a spammer, but in sticky situations when i cant aim for head i gotta spam

After the nerfs, most pros should use Tec9, five-seven or p250 instead of the deagle most of the time. Deagle is overpriced for how inconsistent it is. (of course there are exceptions like NiKo, JackZ, k1to)

7/8 controversial. Everybody can see that other pistols are goodz but I doubt you'll get 10% of people agreeing with this take. 5/8 tak. Though I wouldn't say that it is overpriced and that most pros shouldn't use it, I do think that more pros should move to other weapons that fir their skill level better. Deagle spam is still strong, but yeah, even guys like HuNter have switched
2021-12-07 01:02
I 100% agree on T-side as but on CT side the deagle has value it that it is solid at every range.
2021-12-08 14:12
Disagree, since you are in a disadvantage anyway you should go for the gun that might be inconsistent but can turn around a round were the inconsistent gun cant. You might get a consistent kill with the 5-7, but you wont get these round breaking kills with them.

Wouldnt you blame the players? I think he did a decent job with all the close 2-1 16/14’s they lost. They were a competetive team and tried loads of different almost gimmicky plays. They had es3tag as a star rifler.... woxic was a shadow of himself but people saw how good mezii was in the passive roles. And he was support. Floppy aswell, for playing bad spots he was amazing. Imagine they had gotten someone else than woxic and es3tag. Niko was rumoured to be in c9. Astralis players. Its why fnatic is so exciting now because you have alex and mezi, with mezi taking better roles, along with a hungry smooya, star rifler in brollan and super consistent amazing support in krimz. Its what c9 should have been

6/8 controversial. People get that NiKo isn't winning trophies and neither is G2. But the team got super close, and you can't say that this isn't an upgrade over FaZe I don't think this roster would ever be consistently number 1, but with the sheer amount of times they get close they would eventually win a big tournament. But we will never know, as either IEM WINTER or Blast global finals is the last event for this roster 4/8 take

But let's be real, his stay is just at the begining. The roster is improving either now or in January. He'll have the best prospect in the game and maybe even a top3 IGL. Plus Hunter is a top10/13 player, and either Nexa/Jackz are great roleplayers too

i feel like there's room for at least one of those players, since they can all be very valuable on their own. You just can't have a team made up of them.

Gambit are not onliners, they're just experiencing the spiral that every top 1 team goes through where you lose your perfect streak for whatever reason and then you snowball down a little bit from varying factors, including a changing meta, teams figuring out your playstyle, losing confidence as well as other teams losing their fear of you

I don't think I have any controversial takes. If I had to come up with something then probably the fact that MP9 is way too overpowered but I like the way it is so no complaining from my part.

high sens > low sens 16:9 > 4:3 working on your individual skill before getting to a T2/T3 level > playing in teams and trying to improve as a team before getting to a T2/T3 level the glock is a really good pistol mac-10 > ak in a lot of situations rating doesn't necessarily equal the impact of said player also experience/team XP is overrated in general (apart from LAN XP maybe)

2021-12-07 23:07
Care to elaborate? high sens > low sens is in theory correct, depends on the player but most of the time the higher the sens a player can use the better they can get (aka higher skill cap) 16:9 > 4:3 is a proven fact and can be backed up with facts and logic, yet it is not very known amongst most of the players the 3rd opinion is also correct, unless you find the dream roster (ex. Gambit YNG) for yourself you are better off just improving individually the glock is a really good pistol - can be backed up by facts and logic, it's an unpopular opinion but it's just straight up correct (I obviously meant pistol rounds as you guessed it - it probably won't do much on buy rounds, who would've thought?) mac-10 > ak in a lot of situations can also be backed up by facts and logic, the mac-10 is EXTREMELY good for it's price, the only time it's worse than an AK is if you are fighting long range, possibly medium rating =/= impact of a player, quite logical but unpopular for obvious reasons team XP/general XP is overrated as if you're smart enough, you can learn the game pretty much perfectly from just watching matches from time to time - it's just mind games at that point and whether you will let pressure get to you (hence why I said maybe LAN XP is important since that's difficult to overcome without having LAN XP lol) I took my time to write this out so please don't reply with subjective opinion)))

1. high sens has higher skill cap, thats true, but its almost impossible to be consistent on high sens which is why basically every pro uses low sens. 2. 16:9 is better than 4:3 black bars, i agree with that, but stretched changes size of players on screen and also their speed. Imo better for riflers to use 4:3 stretched, and many pros agree. 3. Agree 4. glock is just by far the worst pistol. High inaccuracy, low damage, on some maps its maybe better than usp but on most usp is just better due to the accuracy and higher range. 5. mac-10 is very rarely better than ak, although it is my favorite smg. Only situations I can think of where its better is vs eco or rushing certain things (if you were rushing mid on vertigo for example ig, would probably rather have mac10). Objectively it has shit range, massive damage falloff, inaccurate at medium-long range, lower damage than ak. 6. Somewhat agree, but if a player has insanely high rating (s1mple, zywoo) it really does show impact. Same for really low rating (kyojin, acor, idk maybe a few more in t1/t2) these players just show they have no impact by having low rating. 7. Totally disagree, you cant learn how to communicate and work as a team if you dont play in one. This is shown all the time when new players first get signed (remember kyojin when first signed? Tons of examples like this). You can learn the game on your own yes but that doesnt mean you will perform well outside of pugs. You need to know how to play off your team, how to ask for things (can you flash x for me etc.) and those are things you really cant do when playing mm with no comm bots 8. LAN XP very important, its just so obvious any time basically any new player to the scene first plays LAN they play like shit. Having experience in dealing with the nerves very important.

1. every player has a different limit, aka dexterity, some players cannot even play with anything higher than 2 sens / 400 DPI whereas some can play with 4 sens / 800 DPI, etc. 2. no, 16:9 is better in general because "stretched models" are a placebo, it's just an illusion that they are bigger whereas the reality is they aren't, the speed is a disadvantage lol, you have less time to react and you often get peeked so fast that you can't even react (aka XANTARESPEEKED), many pros don't "agree", they simple prefer 4:3 because they have been using it since 2008 and are used to it, not sure why it's still the thing to use 4:3 but it's just a stupid trend lol (similar to how everyone copies pro settings...) 4. we are talking about pistol rounds, obviously it is useless on buy rounds etc., but on pistol rounds it's superior to the usp/p2k, it's inaccuracy & damage are just slightly worse than the usp's but it has a bigger mag, more bullets and most importantly - less recoil AND better running inaccuracy, which means you have a much higher chance of run and gunning = better for pistol rounds 5. this is a common misconception, the mac-10 beats out the AK in every situation apart from long-range (and possibly medium-range) CONSIDERING it costs less than half of what the AK does, it's effectivity/price ratio is insane compared to the AK, close range it destroys the AK and even medium range a lot of the time, if it's truly your favorite SMG then you probably use it a lot which means you should know this... as a fellow mac-10 enjoyer I always buy it on buy rounds because it's just so OP 6. obviously... 7. yes you can, you mention "no comm bots in mm" but who actually cares about mm? if you play faceit (preferably in europe), at around the 3k mark you will most of the time play with players who's comms and teamplay are good enough for you to understand what you might be doing wrong in that regard and learn from it, after that you can just learn from pro games and this should be really ez if you are not completely dumb af, it's up to you if you decide to act upon it... funny how you cherry-pick bad players like Kyojin, I can use the same logic and talk about ZyWoo, Bymas (who has been given a lot of praise despite his not-so-great rating), ropz, etc. 8. yes, I sort of agree with this, without personal experience (hah, get it) regarding LAN XP, I cannot say what the truth is but I do believe that at least to a certain degree LAN XP is actually important

Ok a lot to unpack I agree with the first 2, but the thing about them is that they aren't for everybody who wants to use them. They are for people who can use them. Glock is fine to use, but stats wise is bad. Mac-10 can be better in some situations. I think that's established and mostly agreed upon The ratiny part is redundant and I mostly agree with the last part. Average 4/8 controversial as most of your takes weren't super out of the box but mostly 8/8 takes as I didn't disagree with none

thanks mens)) but I do believe that they are controversial since a lot of the time I see a lot of people saying the opposite (ex. low sens is better, 4:3 is better (obviously this is personal preference BUT technically high sens and 16:9 are better), the glock is bad, etc.), I mean if these were obvious to you then you are pretty smart mens))
2021-12-08 12:14
1. As long as you don't go extreme I don't think it matters 2. Personal preference that has a lot to do with what you like to do in-game 3. 100% no. Very few players have ever succeeded in doing this and they typically play very individualistic styles (Ropz for example). Kyojin is an example of what would normally happen. 4. Clos range better than UPS but they are both bad against armor 5. Not even remotely controversial 6. 5/8 Controversial but I agree.
2021-12-08 14:17

1. Depends on what you consider "extreme", for example 3 sens / 800 DPI is not extreme in my opinion yet it has a huge effect, but it does matter as the higher of a sens you can use - the higher your skill ceiling will be 2. Not quite. Sure - you can prefer 4:3 over 16:9 but facts are facts. Technically 16:9 is much better. Why? Higher FOV (as you can see from pro matches, it can be very crucial), the game is slower = more time to react (you won't ever get XANTARESPEEKED on 16:9) and the game also looks better (if you care about that). 3. Not sure why you are only talking about T1 CS as I said "before T2/T3", but okay. Obviously, once you are at a T2/T3 level individually (not just aim, but everything - comms, teamplay, etc.) it's better if you join a team of your level. 4. Obviously I was talking about pistol rounds, you can't expect much from a default pistol on buy rounds lol. But not just close range, the glock is really accurate even long range and very often beats out the usp-s. 5. Not sure what you are referring to here but if it's mac10 > ak then it is, no one would say this out loud lol. If it's about the "rating =/= impact" one, it is quite controversial as in my experience, a lot of people base a player's value purely off of rating. You can see that with players like interz for example - not once have I seen a thread that praises him yet I saw an insane amount of threads saying he should be kicked because he's bad. 6. nice mens)) I'm glad someone does!

1. high sens is better for +w and flicks but garbage for holding an angle (b1t superior low sens abuser on angles) long range fights (your mouse skips pixels) microadjustments (again) miss easy shots (again) clutch scenarios (shakiness while on nerves) so I'd say they're pretty even. 2. 16:9 is harder to awp harder to headshot you get xantarespeeked on all res-s, so why bother playing with skinny models 3. players on t2/t3 are already on high individual level
2021-12-08 20:03

"holding an angle (b1t superior low sens abuser on angles)" - if you can't hold your hand still that's a sign that your sens is too high for you, you should probably lower your sens since your dexterity isn't good enough LOL "long range fights (your mouse skips pixels)" - same as above "microadjustments (again)" - same as above (again) "miss easy shots (again)" - ??? how is that connected to sens "clutch scenarios (shakiness while on nerves)" - ??? how is that connected to sens "harder to awp" - possibly, yes "harder to headshot" - not true at all, "fat models" are a placebo "you get xantarespeeked on all res-s" - 0/8, I have played on 4:3 before and ever since I switched to 16:9 I have not once gotten XANTARESPEEKED "players on t2/t3 are already on high individual level" - read it again

3/8 controversial as I think everyone sees him as washed somewhat. But I actually disagree and have the controversial take. Him being the IGL and support, being very useful in his roles and so on make him worth it. In some teams players aren't going to get high rankinngs and that doesn't make them useless. Look at jackz for G2, if not for him this team would be dead, but he barely has positive stats

I agree that not everyone is supposed to be a star player (and I agree that those players have important roles), but IMO there's a difference between not being a star and just being simply not mechanically skilled enough.

Mouse acceleration and/or fingertip grip are the endgame for peak mechanical skill in csgo. Fingertip gives you so much microadjusting potential while being hard and uncomfortable. Scream use it. Mouse acceleration lets you preaim alot of corners very quickly and develops your crosshairplacement. Also makes tour aiming faster. Xantares uses it and you know how insane his crosshairplacement is. Im not just cherrypicking what x pro uses, its obvious you have better aim on average with people using fingertips instead of laying their whole hand on a big mouse where you restrict movement. I would never use any, because my 800edpi claw does good enough. And i find it very hard being consistent, awping or being comfortable using either.

The Negev has the hidden potential to become a niche part of the meta, in the same way that the krieg is sometimes used as a cheaper alternative to the AWP. It is extremely cheap and could be a devastating surprise on eco/half buy CT sides

NiKo used to main AWP on faze on dusk2. He did a lot better at awping then than he did on G2. NiKo is the best rilfer in tier 1. Sadly AWPers get pocketed and get inflated stats. Sh1ro is not a better player than NiKo, but HLTV has him rated higher.

Niko should never awp, if he misses he doesn't know what to do. He either tries to hide, change position or re-peeks which gets him killed. Only person that rarely got punished for re-peeking is Guardian, he understands when to re-peek when not to take a chance. Niko with a rifle is good for 1-2 before getting killed.

1. kenny and olof still got it, same with f0rest, but more people believe that 2. na'vi aren't that good, they're just profiting from a lack of top tier teams. They're still great tho. 3. maps like ancient and vertigo are fun and needed in the map pool 4. stories like avangar, ence (underdos who make it to the major final just to lose) are boring - a battle between two rival powerhouses (nip vs fnatic, astralis vs vp, faze vs c9) is much more fun to watch 5. faze rn is fine with this line up 6. gambit and heroic should make changes, i just don't see them getting better and becoming a constant threat

Controversial takes for hltv standards/users: Richard lewis is a good journalist. He's reported accurately on a lot of important issues and genuinely cares about both the integrity of our scene and maintaining a standard of journalistic ethics, both of which are too rare in esports journalism right now Lots of people say/seem to think on here that Flashpoint 3 was one of the worst events ever, but imo wasn't even the worst event this year, not by a long shot. Stockholm was a production shitshow, IEM Winter has been just one giant scheduling fuckup, the first CIS RMR was so steeped in cheating accusations that betting sites literally returned money on some matches (which basically never happens) and also it was an event sponsored by Parimatch with multiple teams also sponsored by Parimatch playing against each other which should've disqualified it from even taking place, Blast Fall had a crowd attempting to cheat for Astralis and seemingly did nothing about it the whole event Valorant is actually a cool up and coming esport and has what it takes to surpass CS:GO in viewership, level of competition and most definitely in terms of profitability to orgs CS teams are a marketing exercise for the most part. No matter how much you win it's just not profitable to have a CS:GO team right now with how inflated the salaries are compared to the relatively modest prize pools

The rise of B1T made Monesy less important for Navi, and considering S1mple is only 24 he probably won't get a chance ever to play for them as a starter.

mechanically speaking people are much better nowadays, if only because of how much longer people have been playing, and how much more time they can dedicate to it. The entirety of the top 30 nowadays plays professionally, that certainly was not the case 15 years ago. I don't know how you would quantify the mechanical skill ceiling of players though? Maybe movement had a higher ceiling, but what is your train of thought here?
2021-12-08 23:48

I'm talking about the game not the players. CSGO skillcaps you because of limited movement, CSGO inisting on nerfing movement over the years and rewarding crouch shooting and holding angles also lowers the skill in terms of raw aiming.

6/8 controversial. Though it doesn't seem like it at surface level, I'd say most people would agree that Vitality won't be number 1 or 2, and more like a tittle contender (that shows in how often people have said here the opposite of what you said) 4/8 take. Top1/3 seems to much for this roster, and I think they will need another change down the line to break into the top3. I see them being top5 easily, and not top5 like the current one where only 2 teams compete for tittles. But tbh, seems hard to see them beat NaVi, good Gambit or even current G2

+1 I totally agree, and I actually rate this take a lot. I'd say 5/8 controversial as most people hate new stuff here, but 8/8 take

CSGO needs to expand bo3 to contain 9 maps in the map pool, revert cbble and bring cache back, otherwise it's fucking boring because you can predict 2 bans per team and know exactly which 3 maps will be played.

It would be better if they bring in fresh maps instead of bringing back old maps with new make-up. D2, Mirage and inferno need to go next, most teams just play either of these 3 maps and it's getting boring now even to watch.

Sure, we could go for that approach. But, yes, the map pool NEEDS to be expanded. 9 maps would give teams more versatility, better teams that play better with strats and not just aim would be benefitted by this expansion. Thus, i'd dare say that the REAL better teams would stand out. Plus, it'd be way more fun to watch more maps.

i dont think predicting the map bans is what makes a game entertaining. I'd much rather see a higher level of mastery on 7 maps then a lower quality on 9. Also cobble and cache are overrated by miles. Please don't bring them back. Cobblestone was hated even in its day, and cache has been played out. Why do people keep trying to recycle old stuff?

Cache is fine, a lot of stuff was discovered after removal, still balanced. I'd bring Tuscan. I'd definitely get rid of Dust and OVERPASS, though. Overpass is just.. boring. Small. Annoying.

Overpass is both too small and to big. I dislike it as well. Especially the connector area which was always the maps biggest weakness

the only difference i find is the 'professionalism' level of the topics discussed by casters. in that respect, anders, harry, hugo and moses are top; and scrawny, lau, machine and spunj not so much. however, casting skills of all of them are pretty good.

Scrawny is a bit too cringy imo, especially in the last blast event.
2021-12-08 20:59
Anders is probably my favorite caster but my favorite duo is Machine & SpunJ, and rn I like Lau & Scrawny a lot :D

Faze super team (2017-18) was the best line-up they had. That team had the potential to win a major and shouldn't have changed. Any line-up after -karrigan till present is not capable of reaching the same heights as that line-up.

- Thorin and RL are great on the desk and make the best CS content that exists. - Even though kNg is a cunt that deserves where he is rn, he could have been a top 20 player in the world if he didnt destroy all of his chances. He is in the same vain as players like nex aizy and k0nfig(before he joined col) - Playing CS GO is an horrible experience compared to Valorant unless you are into community servers. - Russians in MM usually are nice people compared to the average person in MM.

Fnatic era was the most impressive due to their mid rounds, clutches, retakes(they actually went for it and won), aggression, and just overall shitkid mentality and confidence, while being the most hated on team to ever play cs:go and bullied so hard some of the players ere thinking of quitting but still kept on winning anyway. did alot of roster moves but the core just kept on winning Also Flusha got #1 player stolen from him by Get_right 2014 Just look at these stats and wins Flusha: hltv.org/news/13895/top-20-players-of-20..
