this optic team has a chance to make a major.   they are already competing against the top NA teams including Luminosity.  Also optic will be providing the the CSGO team with it's own house.  I remember they had some cool late game executions on inferno during cevo.  maybe having the whole team in a good practice environment would help them develop even better strats/tactics.

Was Double AK, close to DMG before the rank shift. Hadn't played in about a month and a half & decided to play some the past few nights. Lost 2 games thanks to quitters and then finally won to be placed in Nova 1. Yup. That's not a joke. 

Getting back to Double AK should be FUN.

Apparently they tweaked the ranking system to even out the distribution of players.

Take a look at the rank distribution from November to what it is today. There has been a significant shift.

 

 

Also... looks like the IBP guys are confirmed banned for life.

RIP IBP.

 

Also ranks are noticeably better as of late, feels like you're teetering on the edge of going down all the time with most games being competitive. Think I've drawn like 3-4 times this week which never usually happens.

 

Edit; @@GirlfriendHaver best thing to do is just jump straight into casual / deathmatch to learn the mechanics. You'll need to spend a bit of time in there before you're allowed into competitive anyway but just have fun with it while you're picking up the aiming and whatnot. Once you go into competitive basically just do what everyone else does with the buying, talk to people a bit through the games and you'll be reet. Probably the best tip for picking up how to play the game is this video by steel:

anyone wanna help me learn how to play this game? i just got my new gaming rig today and I've never played a PC fps so i have a lot to learn

Not to be captain obvious but watching the pro's in depth will help you alot.

 

After playing tdm and getting your aim, just start watching alot of CSGO and pick up strats and call outs

When you go into the game open your console and type "map aim_botz" and then it's pretty easy from there just finding what settings you want to mess about with. There are videos on the net on how best to train your aim but imo the best thing is to learn while you play, makes it a lot more fun.

 

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=143904777 The is very good but you have to do some console commands to get out of the floor at the start "sv_cheats 1" followed by "noclip"

 

EDIT;

 

Optic vs CSGL bo3 to get into the $1.2M Turner League

 

 

LOOOOOL

Cloud 9 signs Stewie2k

Not sure how to feel about this move. Hopefully his ego gets taken down a few notches and can actually help the team. As Natu said on Twitter, the kid is talented & everyone's career has to start somewhere. I'm hoping he proves myself & all those who are questioning him wrong but I'm still unsure about it.

Nice to see that Echofox picked up the best player in the world a2z.

 

 

On a more serious note that team should be one of the better NA teams with sean being probably the only good NA igl, ryx and tck are solid, and moe can be great when hes on form.

Honestly there just needs to be a big event with all the top teams in attendance, it seems like they're scattered at the moment. MLG Major will make up for the delay thoughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Hardcore groups boys.

 

For those who missed it Tempo Storm (second best team from Brazil) ripped the NA scene a new one to qualify for IEM Katowice in March. Took down the top 3 NA teams in a single elim bracket.

Haven't gotten a chance to play through it yet, but the changes look good so far. Hopefully will get a chance to run around the map a bit tomorrow and get an actual feel for it. 

Also, via Reddit, some pictures of the actual map changes. Interesting stuff - can't wait to try it out.

anybody play competitive? I've been playing CS off and on since 1.5. I was a Supreme awhile ago, but stopped playing for about 6 months and now currently a DMG. I usually just solo queue so any talent level is cool with me as long as you use a mic.
