It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight. Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change?

The CEVO Experience: Not Quite There Anymore

Global Offensive can exploit the power of the Source engine console to give you more options and better settings. Just want to have a play? What are the best CS: The syntax for commands put into this box is -[command] and then a space before the next one or any additional values that might be required.

Features like skins marketplaces, points systems, redeemable items, and statistics are common place; there are simply too many features to list!

Comments Shares There is an ongoing debate whether players should be assigned roles in Counter-Strike: Others, myself included, believe that roles help you to systematise the way you approach the game. But think about it: Learning all of those grenades takes a lot of work. Someone who can flash you in from any angle on the map? What does a support do? If your in-game leader says that your opponents tend to play from a specific spot, the support player should know a grenade that will make life harder for them in that specific circumstance.

Just like with all roles in CS: GO, communication is super important. The support should be good at adapting their play according to the information that their teammates provide. In my mind the support player should focus more on the tactical aspect of the game than most players. Every situation is unique, but if you play and study the game enough, you will have a pretty good idea of what the best play is.

Last week I kind of hinted that we just closed one of the biggest deals of my career. This is the first of two parts. This is a personal accomplishment that I adds a huge level of responsibility. This is a big deal for me, for Unikrn and, honestly, for the entire gaming ecosystem. Last October, Unikrn launched the first-ever community CS:

They also replaced all player animations to get rid of some really annoying bugs.

For a tier VII gun, these are small in caliber — a mere mm where most other ships boast mm or greater. This comes with some drawbacks beyond the obvious lower damage per shell. On the whole, these are very powerful weapons owing not only to their excellent HE performance, but their AP shell performance too. Were it not for her nerfed rate of fire, Duke of York could have been a contender for one of the heaviest hitters at her tier.

As it is, these aren’t weapons suitable for a tier VII battleship. Let’s get grouchy first and talk about the deficiencies of her guns before we sing our limited praises.

April 20, , I noticed recently that actually a lot of players here at ByB are also CS players and liked the idea of having a friendly laddered tournament whereby you can get together a team and be chucked somewhere into the draw. If you cant find a team just enter as a solo player and we will try to make you into a full 5 man squad. Obviously there are some players that are significantly better than others, to counter this the first match ups will be random, then the second tier will split into two different sections.

Chapter 16 – Eye Of The Storm:

I’m here to teach all of those saying “oh daddy, what’s matchmaking? So let’s get down to what CS: GO designed it for. A competitive system based on ELO, designed to place you in a group of people with the same, or nearly the same, skill group as yourself, the game is 5v5, which means 10 people will be of the same skill. If you do good, you’ll gain elo or rank up, if you do bad, you’ll lose elo or de rank there are some exceptions like if you do bad but win, bla bla bla, you get the point But what is matchmaking really?

Matchmaking is a system based on ELO, but with a force field around it, so you could do great for 10 games in a row, and not get ranked up. Then, mysteriously this “shield” seems to turn off, coincidentally when you go with people of a higher skill than you, to see how you do. You do bad because they’re higher skilled than you and you derank. Now that’s if you’re lucky. To explain my next point I’ll use this “chart” of some sorts: GO Matchmaking Players in a Nutshell.

Actual people of that skill group trying to improve: If you where planning on starting matchmaking, consider the following:

Recently there have been some issues with Counter Strike: Some Reddit users made posts about it on the Global Offensive subreddit, discussing possible reasons for the failure of bullets to register as having hit an enemy. So how did I achieve to get so many hitreg failures in the video? The 3 buttons used by me are: Note, when trying to test this yourself that you must switch within 15ms on 64 tick to get this particular case of hitreg failure.

This is a personal preference.

S seriously a few years ago. I played deathmatch very often, and joined in a few different 2v2 ladders. At that time, I was unaware of the implifications proper settings rates, etc. Every server I joined had it proper settings After a year or two of enjoying CS: A game so very different, but still with some of the same properties it’s highly competitive, and hard to master. The thing I noticed the most about it, however, was the impressive implementation of competitive play into the game.

In Quest of Fair Play: What you can figure out is how to avoid running into cheaters. So, any matchmaking game you play on, CS: GO for example, has VAC in place actively trying to look for cheaters. Like any creator of a major online competitive video game, Valve has the responsibility of ensuring fair gameplay and a cheater free environment for its customers. But, Valve is notorious for not working on their anti-cheating software and not really talking about it either.

Click the button below to have Xbox help on your cell phone. Friday, March 2, And the reason for this part to fail differs along with the difference of the type of connection you are using as follows: Direct connection to modem: Using a modem you can’t connect more than one device so make sure that the only device connected to the modem is the Xbox console. Wired or Wireless connection to router: Turn the router off then turn it back on after couple of seconds, by that I mean to unplug it from the wall socket then reconnect it back.
