Nah that was ingame, you died if it hit you. (seriously).

I was reminded of other utterly bizzare map features, like the electricity field designed to stop terrorists from camping spawn on de_foption - A bug meant that you could press the button at the end of the round, and 5 seconds later (at the start of the next round) it would nuke the spawn and kill all the terrorists :downsgun:

There was a lightning trigger when someone crossed the bridge, for sure. There may have been another one but I forget.

There were two, it would thunder if you walked up the stairs from the canal, and also if you crossed the wooden bridge.

Sound triggers need to make a return, the ones on train were amazing, barking under popdog, airplane up T heaven, birds down ivy and then crouching down ivy so you didn't hit the trigger for the ultimate surprise attack.

Those were the days.

Bonus weapons give you more points for kills while the bonus is active.

I actually used to REALLY look forward to playing aztec in CAL matches. My first CAL-o playoff match in like 2002 (holy poo poo) was on aztec and we rocked the other team. I actually liked playing prodigy as well, so there's probably just something wrong with me.

Bonus CAL-o match screenshot from 2002, you had to take one at the end of each half because the server had no way of auto-switching players and remembering the scores. Also you only played 12 rounds per half instead of 15. Not uncommon to see 11-1 CT scores on aztec, it was even worse than nuke in that way. And the game looked terrible:

Yeah that's why I loved it, stopping the rain sound on Aztec was great. After a while I bound it to mouse3 and was doing it so often that it actually became a hinderance, because I'd do it to stop the sound of people running... so I could hear people running.

No one is certain about what exactly goes in to elo change, but most people think personal performance has some sort of impact.

To keep up the question chain: how do commends work? In Dota 2 they are an embarrassing waste of a mechanic that might as well not exist. I assume it's the same way in CS:GO. But can you get commends from players on your friends list and/or commends from people you queued with?

Yeah, a few people have tested only queueing together on new accounts. The players that performed better got higher ranks.

A monkey in a long line of kings

Just got an Insertion mission(Battle-Scarred Varicamo Blue XM1014) that took 2 long-rear end queues to actually get a completion on.
The first had the server lag out until it completely crashed on round 2.

The second also saw intermittent lag spikes, really bad.


It took me about ten rounds to correlate the lag to the game and hooray, Valve managed to completely gently caress up Insertion:

If you move around in the treehouse, it causes almost unplayable lag and I think if 2 people get up there it'll probably crash the server outright

I hope overgrown sticks around after this operation ends, it has the most potential of all the breakout maps imo. It seems like a really T sided map to me, which is fun but something they'll probably balance later. It's really easy to make big comebacks on T side.

The problem with the Ts on that map is that they don't just try to drop into vents every round so it's over quickly.

WHAT A LOVELY DAY


So I took the advice of the pro's mouse sensitivity spreadsheet that was linked a few pages back. I'd been stuck between gold nova 3 and gold nova 4 for months. 15 games after turning my sensitivity way down to what the pros use, I'm MG2 now. I feel like I might even reach double AK before I top out.

If you have to move your mouse any less than 25cm for a full 360, turn your sens down and profit!

Not sure what others think, but in my own mind if two players have the best spawn as T's, it's impossible for CT to stop the first one getting down and very hard to stop the second - no matter their spawns. Any more than two players is almost certainly a death trap however. Also while we're on the matter of A rushes on nuke, please use both squeaky and hut. That is all.
