My reaction time's 300ms, and I once won a cs go tournament in my school so 0/8
xQc 150ms at human benchmark + aimlab
and im better than him in any fps game with 250ms
I also have higher reatction time than average human, but i guess we just trained to have our optimal reaction time. Around the top 7% i did the human benchmark thing which is 170ms.
talent in csgo is knowing which balls to rub to make it in the pro scene
While this is a skill that can be improved over time, some have naturally better hand-eye-coordination and a higher genetic limit. You can train for 10k hours, but you will never hit the shots consistently that s1mple and niko do hit.
And there is also gamesense. How you react in fast moments is also a talent, but anyone can get on a decent level here. Some people like ropz, zywoo and s1mple are however way better than others in this field. Someone like kyojin will never have the gamesense that zywoo has.
that is part of it but saying that talent is just about reaction time is nonsense
my reaction time is 5ms and im a time traveler from the planet of neptun
you dont have to have fast reaction time if you are playing rifles (no awp)
Exceptional reaction time is one of least necessary talents in game like cs, where only single gun can reliably kill with single bullet, where crosshair placement is primary fundamental, and where you have to stop before shooting to be accurate. Reaction time means jackshit if you gotta spend several hundreds of additional stacked miliseconds to counterstrafe, move crosshair towards enemy and then have to engage into a much longer process of spraying bullets if first bullet did not result with a kill. Exceptional reaction time can give edge and be useful to awping, but not requirement to become great at the game.
reaction time is worthless in cs:go, you still need to move the cursor to the head. That's the part where most fail
good hand-eye coordination
ability to think fast
no tunnel vision
piano player fingers
not neccessarily. rpk didn't have a fast reaction time and he did pretty good at vitality
so basically if you put on the map max verstappen he will beat the shit out of me?
Bruh, he won't be able to beat a gold nova lmao
There's lots of pros that have done the reaction time test that have gotten worse than average. I'd say on am individual level 80% is simply crosshair placement and gamesense, 20% is actual mechanical skill
But again, CS is a team based game. Lots and lots of players have individual ability, but actually making it in tier one is all about your team play
imo gamesense and positioning, then reflexes/aim etc
