If they want to take them serious they should try to merge with male teams that is a fucking joke. Some players like zaaz or juliano can play with medicore/tier2 teams for sure.

That's not true. Nothing (that I know of anyway) physical or in the genes justify men to be better than woman in CSGO. The only reason I see is the amount of players. There is so many more male players, that the chance of one of them being exceptionally good is higher than for girls players. It would be nice to see mixed teams.

they would probably fit into Orbit or something. But then again they probably doesnt want to be the only female and those teams often surround players that are good mates so they wouldnt kick anyone.
2015-01-18 14:21
something like top 5 sweden? You are seriously overrating them, a team like Orbit would completely clown on these girls, wouldn't be remotely close (as past matches between top female and third tier male teams have proven).

2015-01-18 15:13
Yes, there is something. Men are hunters, women gatherers, usually. Of course there will be a few cases of girl being better at some of the things, we usually see is male dominated, like operating heavy machinery, flying, driving and reading maps. It's not that girls can't do it, it's just that genetically (evolution), men are better at perceiving the space/land around them. It does apply to pretty much anything, that requires you to have a sense of whats going on around you. Testosterone has a big say in this. edit: I do agree that the difference in numbers of male/female players, play a huge part, but that's just one thing. And far from the entire story. One could also argue that the condition of ones frontal lobes would also be a huge factor. ie. smoking weed on a regular basis at a young age etc - or simply damaging them in another way. would hinder you.
2015-01-18 16:45
Then why do most of the females that do play CS suck?
2015-01-18 18:10
grills have slower reflexes and shittier muscle memory. God made them stupid and easy to control for a reason, so we can use them as breeding cattle until the end of time. Instead the faggots and baguettes keep insisting that we make them cops, soldiers, and firefighters. Now even the hltv nerds want to see them participate in the men's league.
2015-01-19 20:18
There should be common tournaments for Male/Female. No difference: woman or man you are, if everything you need is just clicking buttons.

There ARE tournamnets for Male+Female. Every fucking tournament allows female players. You just don't see any because there are very few at that top level and the rare ones that are either choose to play in female only teams or get overlooked simply because they are female.

"Reflexes in Men and Women According to a Clemson University article, men appear to have faster reflexes to both visual and audio stimuli than women. Another study found that the muscle contraction rates were the same in both genders, but the amount of time between when the stimulus was presented and when the muscle began to contract was less for men." "Our results supported our predictions by showing a significant difference in the reaction time of men (mean= .4491 sec) and women (mean= .7418 sec; t=2.160, P<0.05)" This is from two different sites, + the one that #124 gave (this one is Google translated, sorry, I don't speak french): "On the other hand, women tend to have higher intelligence and better social cognition, potentially allowing them to grow more effectively in groups . But unfortunately in CS, the level of team is not as important as the individual level of each player. Good women's team would have a good chance of losing against a male mix consists of 5 large individuals who simply too fast would click on the heads, even at a disadvantage." You get the idea... "no disadvantage" at all, right? :) It all comes down to reflexes and there's nothing you can do about it... so yeah, there will probably never be any "real good" female teams to stand up to the male top teams but there's an explanation to why that is and it's not in the lack of practice, will or whatever.
