Don't remember much other than some cool highlights and killing someone with a smoke I threw at CT from long on old Dust 2
dropped a deagle ace while trying to chew this terrible salmon i caught
nuke ramp, felt awesome
i was 12 and googled for fps games for free, i found quake 3 the only game that run good on my old shit pc, in that game i met my first online friend and he introduced me to cs but my pc was too bad, i saved up for 1 year and bought a pc that could run CS. Since quake was very aggressive and fast pace I always played first entry every map and game, i got very good at it later on when you also add game sense a bit, mechanics were easy after so many hours. Since then I played 8k hours and over 4k faceit games, I am sad af that cs2 isn't as i hoped unfortunately, but i still believe
First ace I got was on like 90 ping with a pro90.
And before that when I got the game I couldn't even play it without a vpn (shout out tunnelled tho I don't need it anymore) so I was on like 130ping in deathwatch and comps. Pretty sure my first 100 hours may have just been like mostly dust2 against expert bots.
my first cs game was 1.6, played a few games with friends after school at a youth club, didn't know anything about it, then I started gaming more in 2015 where I made a friend in payday 2 (or could be tf2, not sure anymore) who introduced me to csgo, wasn't interested in the pro scene till I bought an ak skin with preapplied tsm stickers, so I started cheering for them. My first ranked game was on dust 2 and I lost 0-16
I just remember having the m4a4 howl, ak-47 fire serpent etc. and thinking they were awesome, but I was a broke student and needed the $ so i sold it :-)
edit: they were worth like 50$ each back then
Spent most of my middle school years in 1.6, where some friends back then got an idea to try CSGO, it was in 2014 probably in Cologne time.
I played inferno as my first match.
Got into skins and betting pretty quickly with my brother, in csgolounge.. I remember I opened summer cases, those green ones, and got awp corticera (was around 8 euros back then I guess). Didn't use it because thought they will wear off with using :D And my first CSGO "friend" eventually scammed it from me.
i play only bitch black drunk and the half i remember from games it's the best game play drunk. always fun, not like for example wow where you have to actually get your shit together in mythics etc.
My friend told me to play csgo, my PC could only run it at 20 fps, so I couldn't play it
Early 2020 I bought a graphic card and started playing (worst mistake of my life)
i remember how i owned in pub game, was too easy.
started playing cs when i was about 5 or 6 watching my cousins play at lan houses and my richer cousin at his PC and my father wss gifted an old pc when i was 10 and since then i started playing cs 1.6
when it was 2018 my father was able to afford a better pc and i started playing csgo
i started in casual and met my first friend mano vitoto, then another friend gustavo living, then another group of friend with fabao, bruno, pedrao
my first ace i dont remember but i remember my first 1v5, unfortunately i lost the demo, and i also did a 1v10 at casual once in dust2, i just barely remember some frags
this is it, my csgo history, now if its about watching pro cs, i have a photo of mine til this day watching VP vs SK in EPICENTER 2017, good memories that wont be back...
my friends told me to get the game when it first launched. I had never played any FPS games or knew of CS as a franchise at that time. Mostly played mm competitive because it felt more serious than other game modes. I don't have to say much about the shooter side of things since I had no idea what a FPS would play like. Watched the tournament streams and such but was interested in skins and of the concept of 'virtual items having irl value'. This was also when I first got the ability to spend money on games but didn't have a job yet so my options were limited. A lot of the skins I considered getting at the time but ended up not were stuff like:
m4a1 knight FN: $300
dragon lore FN: $1500
aug akihabara: FN: $600
ak hydroponic FN: $300
yeah obviously now I wish i had gotten at least a few of the skins that ended up going 10x - 100x in value
Still I got some playskins and discovered csgolounge with their automated gambling system and bet the skins i had on the site. never made any risky bets so i always got my skins back for the most part and also where I ended up getting other people's skin crafts that I still have to this day.
my best memory
in 2015, i came back from school and got a game on faceit vs schneider (he streamed for 3k ppl)
i played more or less fine :)
Bought the game in summer 2014, played on an old notebook, couldnt do shit with 30fps, started playing on my old ass pc, got 7day ban almost every week since it was 50/50 if the map is gonna load for me or not. Playing still pretty actively, over 6,5k hours, best memories from like 2015-2017, dont really remember any ace, just that I mained inferno (best fps I guess) and I "main" it till today lol
played for the first time on a cousins pc back in 2013
won a gun game and fell in love
been playing since then (i still suck tho)
my peak was SMFC and lv16 on gamers clubs servers
I first played the game in 2015, on old laptop (my computer at the time couldn't run the game). I had like 20 fps lol
I opened 3 cases in my life - got some blue shit, ak-vulcan and 57 monkey business
My friend got huntsman knife in his first case
I probably played about 1/3 of my games on assault, italy, aztec, dust, old vertigo. To this day i dont understand why they removed these maps
Once saw someone get very expensive skin in post game drop(m4 poseidon?)
Liked playing with dualies, after seeing some video where GTR gets triple kill with it
I used to play crossfire and i get tired of It. So i started to search for a fps in mid 2017, then i find csgo. The first tournament that i watched was krakow major
started playing on 1.6.
1.6 > go
Started playing it because my younger brother was playing it, in like 2015 or 2016 I think.
Ended up playing solo for quite a while, and then when I got sick of that I met a nice English guy in a match, added him on steam. Turns out he had a whole group of friends who play together and we still play together after years.
I started playing cs because my older brother was playing it all the time. One of my very first games he was spectating and I managed to win a 1vs4 with nova against a full buy on A site of old inferno (old old inferno). He said he had absolutely no idea how I managed to do it :D
started playing in 2016, wasted 6.5k hrs, couldve done so much more useful stuff
when I heard that CS GO was to be released, I and my clan from another game decided that as soon as this game appeared, we would create a new organization there and become pros, but the following years happened so that I moved many times and had no Internet at that time, it ended up that I never played csgo, but I have been betting and watching matches for years, ahahah
Bought cs source for garry's mod textures because me and some friends started playing gmod in high school, then we played source a few times because why not and it was pretty good so we decided to buy cs:go somewhere around 2015.
First years we just fucked around a lot but when many friends started playing less I went on a solo grind to global and played a lot between 2017/2020, ever since then I boot up the game now and then for a game or 2 but mostly just keep track of pro cs.
Started really paying attention since the first 2016 Major in Columbus and it's been fun to follow ever since.
