When someone is "better" than me because they have faster reflexes, more accurate aiming, better hearing, superior game sense, and just plan logged more hours...yeah it's natural to think they cheat. The unfortunate truth is that they usually don't, especially if you download the demo to review.

/me passes out from disbelief Whew

Someone other than myself making this rational argument?! Can't be!

Don't worry, it's not. He's cheating at MessageBoard GO

I've got all the message board cheat codes.

I play CS GO at least one competitive match a day minimal so I'd say I'm fairly active, considering I used to be glued to the damn game pre CSGO. With that said, unfortunately there are tons of better players at this point because CS has gone through so many iterations, people got their skills early on.

I've played plenty of matches were my teammates are whiny biatches just because they keep dying when they literally suck balls, our opponents are legit better, and all I hear are whiny hack rants. It's so lame, and ultimately that is what kills the experience because someone can't wrap their head around losing to a better player.

Having played the new Cruise map I can't help but wonder why they didn't just put one of those velvet ropes across the boarding ramp, then the whole terrorist incident wouldn't have happened.

lol

I played that one first, very streamline with long angles and north/south layout.

Then played Coast afterwards, a maze of tight angles with nooks and flanking hallways in every part of the map...reminds me a lot of CoD.

Seph, do you ever get the operations? Is there a point?

I get them for the little skill challenges and unlocks. I'm a whore though and pay to open every case I get. I rationalize it because I mostly plays Arms Race and GunGame normally where the drops are very infrequent... but yeah I don't want to know how many times I've spent $2.50 on a key. Disposable, super disposable, income... yay I guess.

Yea, there are cheaters. But at the same time... a lot of people are called cheaters when they really aren't. The Skill gap between Global and LEM is fairly significant. And post patch I can't even imagine how big this gap is.

I understand you are probably really discouraged about all the "cheating" but a lot of it really isn't cheating at all. It's just that some people are significantly better than others.

I just play CSGO with bots - at least they don't cheat, and they don't say anything about each others' moms.

I've done about 150 overwatch cases (peer review of reported violations) and about half of them cheated, and most of those were blatant to a spectator.

I always liked nuke.

I tried nuke on casual mode, had some pretty major frame rate skips with my nvidia card, pretty disappointed. Hopefully optimizations are inbound or it doesn't affect me in competitive 5vs5.

Nuke was already in GO. This is just a redesign to make it more acceptable for competitive play.
