12:45, I join the game. Score is CT:12, T:2. I join Ts.
12:49, after a couple "what's up", "hi" statements, I ask how come we're losing.
12:54, I make my bid for leader of the T group, stating that if everyone rushes with me that we will win 90% of the rounds.
12:59, CT:14, T:4.
1:15, CT:14, T:10.
1:21, CT:15, T:15. Map ends.
It's *not* a team sport. It's a game about psychological control. I can take control of a game in many ways; becoming a leader is just one of them. The same game could have gone the same way if I explained to the terrorists how to win & then proceded to flashbang the CTs as a CT and get into verbal/typed conflicts with them. Most of the time, it doesn't even require the flashbangs. People are easily swayed by a few choice words about someone's race or sexual preference. All you have to do is find someone with a weak mind that can't handle someone calling their race a name and that person's game is yours to shape by controlling their anger. You can make them highly aggressive or unbalanced and sloppy. People are so easy to control. Counter Strike is a game of psychological control.
