sounds to me like you overperformed your way to 2.5k elo and now that it's over everything is back in its places
elo just a number, no difference from lvl7 to 2,8k elo
try your best in pugs but dont tear yourself up. if you lose just queue the next one and forget about the previous game... simple as that! enjoy yourself and laugh off your mistakes
Moral of the story... Dont troll or go for highlights.
Get some friends to play with if you care so much about elo. You'll get that back in less than a month
you already know the answer but you don't want to hear it because it's easier to press the start game button than to find a team
Keyword "solo queue" even m0nesy said that Solo queue at low ranks is impossible to get out.
Playing soloQ and taking the game seriously just dont go together
Either play soloQ and play for fun or find 4 people to play with
playing stupid for highlights is developing bad habits.
If you are truly better than your elo you will be able to win games and get higher elo, it's as simply as that. Especially on T sides if you are clearly better you should be able to get good impact and win rounds
lol quit csgo game is ass nowadays
Fluctuating in soloq is normal. You can EASILY have 5 games in a row where somebody leave,afk,troll etc. Then you need to have 5 games where you get normal people just to even it out,not even progress,how big a chance is that you will get it? Very low. Maybe you get 1-2 good games again and then few bad. It's a team game,you can be simple but if your team suck nothing you can do. If your mates keep losing site with no kills you will never retake it. The average level in CS is very high,even lvl 4-5 players have pretty good aim,just small details makes a difference between lvl 5 and 10. Utility usage,reading the game,rotations,timing etc. But aimwise there is not such a big difference. Few days ago I watched Docc stream and he played with friends against 5 stack of pros (Valde,snappi,bubzkij,buff and somebody I don't remember) and they did beat them like 16 11. You would expect that 5stack pro must destroy all non-pro stacks but obviously it's not the case as aimwise 4k+ elo players are on similar level
I feel like win/loss streaks are forced sometimes, for like 3 games I can get an amazing team all same elo/rank and the next 3 games are vs higher elo with toxic players it's crazy
This is why faceit is stupid lol. It's not counter-strike, it's some weird version where everyone thinks they're the best and tries to carry.
Fun story : i have my friend who is global/level 9-10(plays in lobby with other chad players). But, i out aim him in 1v1 sometimes, and i am mg/lvl1 in faceit(soloq). So, i think similar case with you, maybe need to improve on soloq aspect a bit and not tilt.
2. I once got into lobbies where most players were level4-6, but somehow i was top fragging on mirage. They often told me how to play where to hide and all that and i somehow fragged mostly when enemies were not looking or flashed. Probably it could be a good position thing, maybe check whats that rope for you in your soloq lobbies.
play with 4 premades who communicate, that got me from lvl 5 to 10 in like a month
Brate ez fix
Join loba clan (or any serbian/croatian/bosnian/etc), create lobby named balkan only and u have better soloq experience.
U speak in ur own language, have normal mates and u can communicate
Good luck to u
Man People are so dumb its not worth trying to igl they wont listen because thats how People work in lvl8 faceit just go full bait like all low rank faceit player does
HAHHAHAHA do you hear yourself?
anything below 2.5k is elohell
I cant get outside of level 3 AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
i always when i lose allot of games in row.. all just dont play and get chill and forget about loses and just keep focusing on your game..ofc lvl8 is so bad xd
FUN/HIGHLIGHTS :DDDDDDDDDDDDDD what highlights, who does those are interested in? :DD
the problem imo is that soloQ system tries to force you to have 50% winrate. if you win like 5 games in a row, the next 5 matches youll get these toxic griefers so its its prettty much +-0 unless you manage to win with these toxic players or your just godlike player and can win games "alone".
Welcome to lvl 7-9 lobbies which is 100% matter of your luck if you can win games
Go play level 10, it's much easier there, better teammates.
If your problem is aim or gamesense I can help you in an easy way...
It all depends on how much money you want to spend
its simple. play more serious and try to improve
faceit is scam anyway don't waste your time
I'm having the same problem, I've been playing like garbage for the last like 10 games but I've only ever ranked up I'm level 5 now
level 8 is full of scrubs. Just turn your brain off and push until you get back to lvl 10.
Avg guy who gets decent elo by queueing with premades and then loses all in soloq.
The thing is these 2.5k elo guys think they are so mich better than lvl 8, but lvl players hit hard, too.
Mechanically they aren't much worse. The difference is about teamplay and consistent grind.
100% mental accept that you will just lose at least 50% of your games aspecially in soloq
this is because you were elo inflated most likely mens, lvl 8 can have rly good player but a lot of lvl 10 in 2000-2500 elo range just get lucky/boosted/play too much cs and they get elo when they are not that good skill wise
this is why faceit needs elo reset and new system that is not dogshit
