GA E05: Mirage Catwalk

Luminosity's Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo has released his fifth GamesAcademy video guide for Mirage, focusing on the catwalk area.

In this video, Gabriel "⁠FalleN⁠" Toledo teaches several different techniques on how a player can effectively cover Catwalk, a key position on Mirage that is sometimes overlooked.

With this being a map with many angles to cover, a good setup is of the essence, and FalleN breaks down some of the most effective ways to defend this area, either alone or with the help of a teammate.

"There are many different ways to play on catwalk," he told HLTV.org. "You can help to cover middle, from inside the ladder room, you can stay back inside B, you can play with an AWP or with rifles...

"A good player in this position knows which option to choose from and adapts to the way the opposing team plays.

"Right now, players like coldzera, Edward and Neo shine in this position. In this video, you will know what professional players think when they are covering this position." 

You can watch all of GamesAcademy's video lessons by heading over to their YouTube channel.

LG players had eyes open for new Org since LG owner sucks a$$ and made shitty contracts for them, like that he can keep the price money > LG players got scared that they dont get their money > LG players said NO to SK > SK said BUT YOU SAID YES and we have a contract. LG org vs SK org now. conclusion: LG sucks, SK should get them, LG players only looking for money, SK players are fucked.

Fair enough. While I agree it's very close it still doesn't change the fact that these are pretty good videos. Still stupid of HLTV to be advertising them like this though.

Looking back further, FalleN first announced this idea back at Dreamhack Austin.

2016-06-08 02:58
He's been doing this for years in portuguese, but expressed the idea of doing videos in english a month or two ago. There's no "timing" adjusted with the SK dispute, he only started now because it's right moment, because now he have enough exposition to make it reach the entire community, 6 months ago he hadn't.

indeed. HLTV should have just posted one news article stating that these tutorial videos exist and a link to the youtube channel that you can follow.

plus, hltvorg consists of 90% of teenager crying fanboys, who will do anything for stickers and sign of pro player on their steam profile so it's pretty easy to manipulate them. last thing he left to do is to donate some skins to his fanboys and he will easily get his sympathies back. ez katka

I don't care if you think it's better than gambling site ads or whatever the fuck reason you will make up to justify this, but yeah...speaking of sell out. Isn't this a CSGO news website? If you accept payments for FP ads in this manner, create a different area on the page for it. And you know what, I would still be pissed off even if it were someone else in this post, but the fact that it's Fallen makes me more pissed off. I don't like hypocritical dbags. Put ads on the ad section, not in the news section. ps: And dont give me that "if you dont like it, dont click on it" bullshit. If I want to see his videos, ill go to youtube

Once you have a UK player that have build half of what Fallen build in terms of growing a entire country community, once there is a uk player that pulls up UK´s CS scene from nothing to major champions.... then ur aloud to talk... until then just keep ur noob and racist comments to yourself. Grab a cup of tea, sit back, and quietly watch brazilian CS scene grow, and ur UK scene shrink (if, by any means, it could get smaller).

So much hate ?? Not entirely sure if I agree with the people here, but one HLTV Admin replying properly to the reason for posting this content here should clarify the situation and lessen these hateful comments. By not replying to the questions, this hate is just being fueled further. Fallen is trying to do a decent thing; whatever his motives might be (and the motives of HLTV), but this outright disrespect is not helping anyone. The only reply (was it meant to sufficiently answer all questions?) I could find was here: hltv.org/?pageid=18&threadid=1169253#r16.. PS : Its your site people and u guys know how to run it. I am just giving a humble suggestion to adequately clarify things. I hope I won't be banned for this. PPS : If I am being banned at all, do provide a clear reason for the same, not the usual default message.
