    I don't think he is returning, both because he can't travel and I think they like how Flusha is IGLing. Maybe just add Tarik back.

    And as soon as I say that Tarik signs to NRG. That team is actually really scary now. I'm not sure about keeping daps even if he is a great IGL, but otherwise so solid.

    Fugly did the dirty work for NRG. Not sure Tarik slots in naturally. He’s a fragger though and it postures NRG well on paper moving forward.

    I just think as CSGO progresses, there isn't room in a lineup for non-fraggers. Whether it's support, igl, or shit spots, there is no way to keep up with Liquid and Astralis without having 5 fraggers.

    Oh I agree to an extent. Astralis appears to have 5 fraggers more because of their playstyle and the lack of equal competition at that level though some too plus recently their matchups have been lucky.

    I will say since gla1ve joined everything they do has more of a purpose. Their flashes and nades are excellent as well as trading and peeking. They were fortunate too in that that they had a cakewalk through the Legends stage though. They beat complexity and then got C9 on train starting CT. They struggled against Renegades some but ended up winning on Nuke (their best map) and then Inferno starting as CT which can quickly snowball.

    Dupreeh is not a great entry fragger and is probably their weakness, but is fine because there’s no other weakness. Magisk is a better than average lurker, Xyp9x is a really good support and finds a ton of kills, and dev1ce is a beast.

    I would honestly say Liquid is better top to bottom and has more of a team of fraggers than Astralis. Their tactics aren’t as great and they press some. Europeans have always been ahead of the curve in terms of tactics going back to original CS 1.0 and 1.3. eoLithic, original NiP, and SK were so ahead of US teams. They would dominate in CPL all the time.

    Downloaded and tried to work a little on spray control on workshop maps before playing a few games-

    I was led to believe there would be other people that suck at this game but my face is a huge fan of getting one tapped

    Btw since it's free even more people cheat

    Yeah I play dota and I kinda assumed it would be similar in that regard lol. I question about 25% of the people I'm matched with/against.

    I actually feel like I've experienced the least cheaters currently, less than ever before. Trust factor is just fucking magic now, but that only helps if you have a good trust factor.

    broXcore Joe_Pesci do games get more balanced once you win your first 10 competitive matches? Still having fun but right now in my calibration matches there's always one or two guys dropping a 40 bomb. I assume there will always be some of those guys but does it get a little less common once you calibrate?

    Also slowly getting better. Just went positive for the first time :smug: :smug: :smug:

    i would say so. im in silver 4 currently, and it usually feels pretty balanced to me.

    let me know if you wanna play some games, i've been wanting to play some comp lately.

    -Also I was really surprised to learn that pros use such low sensitivity. I figured it was like COD where everyone uses super high sens, but I guess in a game with shooting mechanics this precise going low is way better.
    -Just figured out how to change my crosshair and it makes a surprisingly big difference.
    -I mostly have no idea where to throw grenades from range.
