He was playing cs:go last night while the servers are down and is very good at that game too. I think he was a 1.6er, he accidentally called mirage map "strike."

It was actually hilarious watching him play CS because he is so drat calm and the cs environment is ridiculously toxic. At one point he said "I think I need to be 15 to understand these people." Everyone just yelling stupid things at him and him staying so calm and just chuckling.

As rex already said, its a pick up game of cs:go. The normal term is called a "ten man," in which two people become captains and select their teams. Being it's a community from SA, they called it goonmanning.

The proper terminology is actually a "buttman" and "buttmanning" thank-you.

Range

Range is what screws me up - is there no good way besides manually measuring on the map to get a distance? (I was even thinking of taking a transparency sheet and trying to make a little thing I could tape on the side of my monitor that I could use to quickly determine range.)

You can judge it based off the markings on a scope. Each scope has various range finding points based on their characters size relative to the markings that you can memorize. Wackyjacky101 on YouTube has some pretty great videos on the subject if you can spare 30 minutes on the subject.

I totally want to watch a 30 minute video on repeat just to figure out what the markings mean instead of just looking at a quick graphic that has all that same information without the hassle

Communist Q

Ignore the aim points, and I think this is still accurate for range finding? Honestly since they've been updated, I haven't bothered to see if there's any new graphic so this may not be accurate. At this point I just aim center of mass with the chevron (^)and it works up to 300 yds most of the time. I believe wackyjacky101 has put out an updated video (5 or 7 minutes long) with some of the updated info.

Occasionally useful for double-fakes too, where people think you've mistaken all chat for team chat. "I hear someone, get in the bathroom." *guy creeps up the stairs to prefire the empty bathroom and gets shot in the back from the other end of the hall*

Glory to Arstotzka!

For range finding, don't forget that mini squares are 100m. Once you approach a place, pop the map up for a half second to get a sense of how far out you are from a landmark.

The old acog 4x used to have really hosed up markers. It was changed in 1.0, I still recommend zeroing if you have time so you don't have to rely on the graphic, or just getting a feel for the drop of your favorites.

I definitely recommend watching the whackyjackies, but I found the most useful one to be this one about range finding and leading targets:

That’s a good explanation.

What I was doing was a sort of “guess and check” approach. Ballpark the elevation and lead and fire a few shots adjusting and once I saw a blood spray I went into a faster “fire for effect” mode since I was hitting the target.

I just started playing after a few months break and Jesus, once you hit the top tier the aimbotters are rampant. It's not even subtle. Guy inside of building suddenly a 180 and plugs you from 300m away. So drat blatant. staring at the wall directly pointed at me as he moved to a window.

Maybe It's because the Aussie server is 75% Chinese players with strings of numbers and letters as names

Switch to fpp if you're having issues with hackers. You can now hold to ADS change so set up your mouse to use it instead of toggle to ADS. It makes the game feel so much more natural, and helps get rid of cheaters in the process. It's miles better than TPP.

At this point I don't really bother to pick fights greater than 300m. You won't be able to loot it more than likely, and are just calling attention to your position by doing so. Due to that, the disadvantages outweigh the advantages with long range fights imo, so don't stress range finding too much unless you're pinned down by someone way off in the distance. At most you're taking out someone who wasn't a threat while revealing your position to everyone else near you.

Had a good game yesterday. Pushing into Rozhok from school and got into a fight with a couple guys in houses. My mate got downed by a kar98 headshot but instead of running to revive him I instead ran into the house and up the stairs. I don’t think they expected me to do that because when I opened fire on them one guy opened up with his uzi, completely shredding his mate and downing him, before retreating back into a room. I killed his friend and then when he came back out I killed him. The lesson here is never not push.

I'll give it a shot. Just miffed since I just cracked the top 100 on TPP OC solo I have to start again with FPP. PU openly admits 99% of hackers are from China so that means 1,485,000 out of 1,500,000 of the bans are from one country why the hell would you let them play anywhere else, but their home servers.
