AGENT UPDATES

Chamber

Continuing with our recent focus of sharpening the strengths and weaknesses of the Sentinel role, this update aims to push Chamber’s ability to hold territory with his unique arsenal of weapons. The changes should provide you more access to the Headhunter (Q) as a save or sidearm without draining your econ, and increase the clear strength of Chamber’s ultimate compared to the Operator.

>Headhunter (Q): Price decreased 150 >>> 100

>Tour De Force (X): Firing rate increased 0.7 >>> 0.9
>>
>>1174740
Personally I like this change. Headhunter really isn't used enough currently and making the ult feel better is fine. It takes ages for it to come online anyway.
>>1172782
>Is Outlaw worth it

never had a chance to play with outlaw. outlaw is not working with valorant economy. you can’t buy it on force rounds, so. it's a strong rifle but only for jett mains, who plays with operator often.

>>1186662
Basic utility usage is easier (no need to memorize lineups just for basic flashes and smokes)
Advanced utility has more depth
All the guns are viable
Armor system is more interesting but at the same time easier to understand
You can wallbang people more
The abilities create a lot of fun asymmetry, each pick is significant since it removes something from the enemy team other than just a gun
>>
>>1189188
>each pick is significant since it removes something from the enemy team other than just a gun
This is the one thing valo has that cs2 doesn't, which I like the most.
Their flash/recon is gone? Now you can play ratty off angles they would normally clear easily.
Their smoke is gone? Now you can post plant off site.
Sentinel dead? Now someone has to watch flank.

There's a lot of subtle info you can get from this. If you're retaking vs. a 3-player team that lost their tripwires, and you killed 2 on-site, you can bet your life that the last player was watching a flank route.

Also the abilities are whack as fuck. Throwing a team safe flash from elevators to vertigo B main is fun and all, but nothing compares to driving a purple shark at someone.

I'm glad it doesnt, the realistic aesthetic in CSGO is weird to me and doesn't make any sense
>SMGs do less damage than pistols despite using the same caliber with longer barrels
>556 rifles do different damage despite being identical
>Galil is cheaper than an AK
>LMGs don't make any sense
>HE grenades don't do that much damage
>Mollies exploding in air
>Mollies being "choked out" by smoke
>Body armor mechanics don't make much sense
With fictional guns in an arcade aesthetic it doesn't really matter as much and you can do things like have the fire rate differ between ADS and hipfire, or grenades that explode twice to let you clear corners effectively without being OP

If I want gun autism I'd rather just play R6 raven shield, it's at least got my wife as a playable gun. Siege really bothers me with how gimmicky it is and how unreasonable some of the demands are (why would you use SMGs rather than carbines?)
>>

Siege bothers me because it was its own interesting game for like two seasons and then it just decided to copy CS.

Oh yeah, I know. At least they gave him the fakeout on the teleport, pretty much all trickster types end up just being a kind of area-denial character.

there's always some fucker hiding in a peekaboo corner so that you can never flank. Fucking annoying.
>>
How the fuck does Yoru's ult appear to enemies. It seems people know exactly where I am when I come out of ult so I assume there's a loud fucking sound cue, but is there anything else I should be trying to do to use this more effectively?
>>
>>1222038
If you're within a radius of another player there's a sound and also some blue glowy aura around the edges of the screen. When your ult finishes there's also a louder distinct sound cue.
So you're invisible, but enemies who understand the game know when you're in proximity of them and might react based off that information.

Ending your ult when you're right next to an enemy is high risk, because if they're paying attention they will often be able to shoot you before your animations finish and you can fire again. Remember you can still use your flash, decoy and teleport abilities while in your ult, to make it extra confusing. If your ult is about to finish right next to an enemy, throwing a flash can give you an extra second or two to get ready to fight.

I find Yoru ult is generally better for either scouting information on enemy locations and/or doing a deep flank where you exit at a place behind enemy lines with no enemies nearby, rather than for "teleports behind you" moments. Remember that the fact yoru ult happens at all is enough reason for some enemies to check their spawn and/or other likely flank locations whether they know you're there or not
>>
>>1222187
>>1222038
The blue warbles on the edge are based on if you're in yoru's LOS, they get stronger when you face towards yoru
The ult is great for entry, spam ping locations for teammates (verbal callouts are great if you have the coordination), flash as you exit your ult and try to catch someone who is about to take a fight with one of your teammates
>>1219194
there is, but it's not very strict (faster matches prioritized over balanced ones)
>>1219213
you have to be shittier at the game and aim for center mass instead of the head and you'll start onepumping a lot more consistently
>>
>>1219194
There is, but a big difference is that there's no party restrictions. You can queue with any number of players and with any rank/skill differences, so you often get duos or trios where one is really bad and the other is really really good.
In ranked you have to be close enough to each other's ranks to party up together so most players in the games are going to be relatively close to each other

>>1227157
Clove's ult is a temporary revive, you have approx 10 seconds to get a kill or assist to stop the countdown and stay alive
When you self-res, you're invulnerable for 2 seconds and can't shoot during that time, so enemies can easily just stand around you and shoot as soon as the invulnerability ends
>>
Clove pussy

Clove seems fun, played her a bit yesterday.
>>1227157
It's kinda like a reverse phoenix ult, you die, revive, then need to get a kill / damaging assist pretty quickly or you go back to being dead.
>>1226614
only the smokes are usable after dying, and they're pretty nerfed as part of it. Ult needs to be used immediately on death (and you need to have it fully charged before you die)
>>
Did you guys buy the SEN classic?

Clove is the closest we have to having a CS frag grenade.

you should try using the gaurdian more, but try playing death match more with it. You can also go to the practice range and and put your crosshair on a bot and get used to just walking around and keeping it like that or that height. Crosshair placement and aim is a lot of aiming, maybe look up videos on passive aim training

Either that or they do hear you but they have to make a call between waiting for you or facing the enemy right in front of them.

The fact it's rebranded from GSGO to CS2 means they -are- making it out to be more than just an incremental engine update, even though that's all it really is

Yeah because CS:GO should have been called CS2 from the beginning. It's not comparable to Overwatch because the difference is that Overwatch devs were telling their playerbase how things were gonna be while CS2 just kinda came out and Valve said nothing about it. The playerbase just assumed things which is what usually happens.
>>
>>1232539
>while CS2 just kinda came out
you lying nigger, they marketed it so hard with subtick and improved gameplay, molly, nade physics etc. it comes out broken, unoptimized (even now), and downright awful movement (if you're not on LAN). AND all the community servers nuked for a whole year since they couldnt port it or didnt make it easy to port. It is exactly the same as overwatch. you should be thankful donk came and saved your shitty "upgrade" to CS2 with his performance or the game was going completely dead.
>>
>>1232547
I honestly don't care, you're gonna end up playing it in like 3 years anyways. Everyone always does. Even I do. And if you don't you end up on 8ch where no good games have come out since (whenever the 38 year old user became 14). Every gamer boycott is one 3 minute cinematic away from ending.

I should try her out more, but the sensors seem difficult to get info out of. I guess you just use them to anchor sites?
I'm a cypher main, don't find him particularly difficult. There's probably a learning curve in figuring out how to use util optimally but there's nothing particularly mechanically hard, and his lineups are generally pretty simple
>>
>>1235770
He felt pretty free when I tried him on Sunset, but I felt useless on attack besides the cheeky window cams to peek right away. Cypher is just so weird. I think she cant be played pretty aggressive and i like her ultimate and wall. Her traps are just horribly unreliable and putting them on higher walls and having them slant to scan the floor is kind of annoying. Her net grenade I also think isnt too great, it can surely plant someone in place, but the debuff is just crouching so really they cant move but they have increased accuracy. The kit + amount of work to make up for the lack luster parts isnt worth it, but ulting someone feels so good.

Cypher on attack is all about flank watch and lurking. You can entry as a sort of Jett but it's not the best.
>>
>>1233251
Cypher is easy. You don't need fancy one-ways, epic trips, or lineups. The only essential homework you have to do is learning the god cams on every map.
Like Deadlock you have to abuse the fact that he can leave his util unattended. That means lurking a lot.

On defense, you just lurk half the time (say goodbye to your precious setup), and have either double kill trips on site, or have a wide net of info gathering. Adjust to the enemy team.

On offense, try to die last. It really fucks with your team if the enemy has constant lurk pressure and your wires are down. Sometimes you'll have to switch it up and actively look for picks, but don't take unnecessary risks. Either way, you're doing a lot of dry peeking.

you actually can only unlock Deadlock with Kong Koupon rn, so just play and youll eventually get Clove. So buy deadlock, but i was in the same spot a week ago and can say she isnt very strong but her ults fun

>>1237980
You really have to do it. Every good sentinel/smoke does it because the attackers get too much map control otherwise.
>>
>>1239130
taking map control is not the same as lurking
you generally never "lurk" on defense, you're just going for a flank

>>1239731
Tactical shooters can mean many different things, CS is one, but its map design is what really encourages the camping and crosshair placement stuff.

That being said, good CS fundamentals will take you far in this game, I would know, I keep dying to people with better crosshair placement than me. However one major difference I noticed is the maps; Valorant maps are big and have a lot of sightlines. Most CS maps every sightline where an enemy might appear can be covered by 5 players.

I was thinking that 27in was better for ranked players because a lot of pros play with their face 1 inch from the screen so seeing the whole panel at once shouldn't be too important.
With a bigger monitor I can stay further from the screen and achieve the same benefits.

You're at the mercy of your smokes being placed before you initiate and your duelists following up. Definitely not terrible even when other people aren't doing their job, but the controller/duelist roles have more impact (at least in my opinion)
>>
>>1244255
You're gonna get timing'd no matter how perfectly you play. You basically have to gamble eventually in every single round.

I'm not sure how much impact each role has on the game since all characters are capable of one-shot headshotting with most weapons, but I'm new. It still seems like CS fundamentals will take you a long way.

>>1244595
true, if you were gold nova or above at the end of CS GO you should be at least gold, very quickly plat once you learn the maps and probably diamond if you play remotely often.

It depents on your understanding and usage of the Agents abilities. If you dont know which abilities every agent has you can probably make it to gold but not further. Except you have godly aim

So what's the verdict on clover?
>>
>>1244595
This is still a head clicker game despite all the bells and whistles. Most people in the 0.01% of ranks agree that people should just lock in whatever they're most comfortable with instead of forcing some "ideal" comp.
KJ-Omen-KAY/O-Sova-Jett is god tier on Ascent pro play, but your average filled-in Sova doesn't know how and when to throw a halfway decent wallhack dart.

>>1245484
At kissing distance you should also run and gun with the AK.

>>1246473
I mean I can see how some comps could be dastardly, and maybe even at a competitive level using those comps agianst a team that you know just has better aim (or aimbots) than you could give you the upper hand, but this seems like one of those things like "it's far easier to teach a good aimer strategy than it is to teach good aim to a strategist."

as a fellow low reaction time player (270 average) just making sure you have actually good cross hair placement helps mitigate it.

>>1226623
>>1261330
One thing I really hated going through unrated and Iron-Silver is how my team used to surrender on almost every match, it was infuriating, I felt like the zoomers on my team could only have fun when they are stomping the other team, the idiots instalocking Jett/Reina expecting to easily pull out 30 kills suddenly getting angry and toxic when the enemy opposes some minimum threat.

I remember this match on heaven when I was a silver, we were loosing on attack and this one player kept wallbanging me with guardian when we were rushing, I keep getting killed but I learned so much in that match, every time that player killed me I learned a different wallbang I could use later, in that match I understood the difference in penetration strength across the guns.
I am the kind of player who wants to learn, "you win or you learn" is a phrase quoted among fighting game players, a better enemy teaches you about his strengths but also about your own weaknesses.
Another point, comebacks, there is nothing more satisfying to me than comebacks, these 10/2 into 11/13 are the bests, and even if I can't pull those out that often I can assure you I have won at least 3/5 of matches where my team tried to surrender, and nothing makes me improve faster than facing a better enemy.
>>1261688
>Sometimes the enemy team is just better than you.
Yeah, and that is how I learn, I don't get that much better by playing against people who are worse than me, against better players I learn about stronger strategies, actually good utility usage and efficient entry plays, I learn to adapt and how to counter said strategies.
Also what if I surrender and then I have to face the same enemies next match? If I don't surrender I can at least learn a bit about their gameplan, if I surrendered then I will get beaten up twice.
Now there are fair reasons to surrender, like when your team is full of uncooperative dicks.

>tl;dr even if I lose I learn more when I play against better enemies.
>>
>>1261688
if you really are getting blown out the game isn't going to take that long. If you aren't, then you have a pretty good chance of making a comeback, given how the economy works

Valorant is more complex than CSGO even if it does have worse gunplay it makes up for more varied and creative abilities.

CSGO pros only have to care about flashbangs, explosive grenades, decoy grenades, and smokes. Valorant pros have to consider stuff like teleportations, tripwires, turrets, wall smokes, drones, tasmanian tigers, recon arrows, etc.
>>
>>1272651
Also the map design in Valorant is far more open which can be both good and bad for attackers. In CS pretty much every important site to hold has at most two, maybe 3 major places to rest your crosshair. Being T is seen as a clear disadvantage and it's why they get better guns and most of the game revolves around trying to break through a stalemate. R6S also was like this for a while but I enjoyed it there because it was more fun, but then the game just turned into CS but roamer's paradise, and I'm digressing.

On /vg/? keeping a thread alive on vg requires a lot of posts just to bump, that means a lots of irrelevant posts, low quality posts, off topic posts and tons of shitposts. The thread had enough of that to stay alive, we had waifufags bumping and keeping the thread alive but at some point a lot of anons started to fight, people started to complain about the waifufags and the other posters (like the "what would be X character favorite food" kind of posters), it became a war zone and everyone was just trying to shit on each other, waifufags and other bumpers got tired of that bulshit and they left, the thread didn't survive without them, the other anons didn't manage to keep it alive there, everyone just left, zoomers and their attention spawn I guess.
After that we made a thread here and even the crossposting from /v/ doesn't seem to bring too much activity, valorant is a zoomer game and you only see it's "community" being active on zoomery and mainstream platforms like YT, discord, instagram and twitter, not in a mongolian cartoon forum. /csgog/ also moved here due lack of activity but you see that thread has 300 posts for every post itt, other anons can cope by saying gambling keeps /csgog/cs2g/ alive but the reality is CS is older and CS players are older, older people like to hang around imageboards, there is an audience here, a similar compassion would be vlr.gg and hltv.org, zoomers enjoy the forum format.
It doesn't help most anons don't want to be associated with the lgtv crowd, valorant has lesbian technicians from the future and non-binary mercenaries, wait, sometimes /u/ is interested in the mercenary lesbians but you know females are not into vidya, at least not this kind of vidya.

Play for retake retard. You're solo and you're gonna hold in site?

I didn't ask to be solo. I can't tell if it's more frustrating to be abandoned at a site that the enemy keeps attacking because the rest of your team is a 4-stack and doesn't give two shits about you or abandoned because your team is retarded.
>>
I'm such a fucking aimlet I'm always getting instadomed.
>>
>>1279717
Yeah and I'm telling you to not play to hold if you're soloing a site. You play for retake.
You play near the safest rotate, and if they hit your site, take a shot, and whether or not you got a kill, wait for your team. You've done enough. It's called weak-siding.

If their 4-man site stack gets run over and they give you shit for it, why should you care?

as the other anon said, try to force as many 1v1s as you can. I generally dont care much about first bloods BUT as a raze and top frag with 0 first bloods WITH 7-13 scoreline. something went wrong imo on your side.
I am plat at best and stuck gold right now, I played with a couple diamonds in a 5 stack and they had similar stats like this while we were losing games 4-13 or something. all the while they were complaining about not getting enough help.

The issue generally is, high elo players need to take our their high elo players. But some baiters are good at identifying their equals and avoid em. They go after the 4 other low elo counterparts and frag out and dies. Which doesnt help the round or the game because their diamond WILL take out your silvers. I hope more players realize this way of playing for the win than some number.
Either way you need to force more duels.

How are they possibly going to make Reyna better in a team environment and nerf her in ranked at the same time?
The only reason she smacks in ranked is because of the ability to 1v1 up to 3 people with full HP. It's going to be a Chamber level nerf, isn't it? Maybe they'll limit dismiss and heal to 1 use each outside of ult.
>>

>The only reason she smacks in ranked is because of the ability to 1v1 up to 3 people with full HP.
That's exactly what they are going to nerf. You are not allowed to have fun.

reynas is literally a skilled jett that doesnt get to run away before fighting. but lets add more smokes so you cant play the game and everyone defaults til the last second

not even worth bother dodging til you get a vct comp during selection. chances of your initiator "challenging angles" duelist "taking space" sentinel "isnt ass" smoker "smokes properly" is like 10-20%

go to the range get your aim adjusted and try to frag out in game dont be afraid of dying. you need mvp streak to rank up anyway so play reyna or yoru to play both CT sides or phoenix to smoke for yourself. no one shoots reyna blind or plays anti flash in bronze
and if your having a bad game bring out the bucky judge odin outlaw

play swiftplay to learn the agent you like. pick one with flashes for easier time. use a + crosshair for quicker tracking. use the dot with outline for precision. find a sensitivity where you can almost 180 by swiping mousepad. flick one bullet or none then micro adjust your second shot to burst downward. aim for neck at close range the muzzle rise brings it to head. aim for hairline mid long range and burst down. mix up where u hold angles and where you throw abilities. always be in position to back up and take cover. outpatient enemy team. read if theyre rushing or waiting for feeds. save rushing plays for save rounds play smart with a buy. if you dont know where all the enemies are then walk with your gun out and look at mini map. dont run til you know for sure. if you suspect theyre around the corner do a 1-2 second run to swing it to beat a hold dont walk on a dry peek. use utility around corners. theyre in the upcoming corner your headed to til you shut them out and make them play backsite / retake
shoot each bot from one side to the other and dont shoot til your crosshair is placed for micro adjust. you can use deadlock nade or stand on top of the score counter to make heads less aligned. shoot far left and far right bots for mid/far flicks. practice strafing close and long range between every shot. usually wanna just shoot two bullets and reset unless your on a stinger then mag dump them
your gonna be same rank until to string together mvps. practice at range til your bored instead of losing a "warm up" game

The netcode is great on low ping, but it shits the bed on high ping or high jitter like every game made after 2015, that's why you see high ping players aggressively peeking all the time, to use the peekers advantage in their favor, unless you are 10 ping you gotta keep moving otherwise your package sending is behind players who are moving faster than you.
Also keep an eye on the server you are playing, you can manually select the servers you are can connect before queuing in the play menu, the game has the awful habit of randomly connecting you to a 130 ping server match too often, for me the game feels awful with a ping beyond 90, I refuse to play the comp on high ping, I hate when I see a clean hit on my screen and then the game says:

Also if you do play a non-duelist as a fragger remember to just mute all because your team is going to constantly complain that you don't exist purely to help them get frags. They're going to all noisily walk to the site, lose a 4v1 by going in one at a time, then blame you for flanking.

>Also I probably need a 144hz monitor
That will help a lot but only if your aiming is on point, a high refresh monitor is a good investment if you play multiplayer games but it won't instantly make you good at the game.
Are you using a gaming mouse? even a cheap gaming mouse would help you a lot, regular optical mice have shitty imprecise sensors and will die if you try to flick on low sens, specially the 125hz ones.
If you think you can get used to the gunplay just follow some advice the other anons posted and depending on how much time you play you could be hitting one taps in no time. A good internet connection, headphones, stable 60fps, a 500hz poling rate mouse and a 60hz 1080p monitor should be enough to carry you to Ascendant, better hardware will make things easier but practice makes perfect, that applies to this or any other videogame you play.

I like the style in theory but in practice it seems like it's just people rounding the corner same time as me, one-tapping me, while I'm shoving the barrel down their throat and missing.

Then again that one Phoenix was definitely hacking so I guess I shouldn't be mad about that one but it's just frustrating how many duels I lose where I get onetapped where it feels like I had no chance to react and meanwhile I'll just miss the best shots, even the ones where I was certain I had my crosshair on their head.

He was either hacking or he was smurfing, people in this game and League of Legends tend to make smurf accounts when they are getting shit on in higher ranks, their ego is so fragile they need to make new accounts and stomp on newbies to feel better about themselves, half of the people in gold/silver are asc-inmortal players that are stuck on their ranks, they need to boost their ego by killing low rank players.
>in practice it seems like it's just people rounding the corner same time as me, one-tapping me
There many points people are preaiming or prefiring, the game is a lot about map knowledge, look at pic related, as a defender in Split you will find 3 attackers aiming and shooting here at the start of the round, as an attacker you will see a Jett, a Phoenix or a Reyna peeking here every single time, if you peek here without using any utility you can easily get killed, there are many ways to attack and defend this corner but that's something you only see in higher ranks, most people want to just get in and get kills, learning to defend is a whole different animal.

I've headshotted her mid air like 5 times in my life.
>>
>>1310035
Okay I was just wondering because I was absolutely certain I was headshotting this Clove but instead it counted as two bodyshots and the only reason I can think of for this is that I wasn't hitting her head, but instead her hand holding the gun in front of her face.
>>
>>1307306
>games are all reactions anyways
It's aim. Aside from actual pros, people here have an average time to begin aiming (between enemy appearing and beginning to move the mouse) of around 500ms. Human benchmark scores don't translate when you also have to aim.

Reacting faster also doesn't mean shit when you're just gonna miss.

how come counterstrike and LoL has Esport discussion on 4chan but we don't
who do you guys think will win shanghai?
>>
>>1310981
for whatever reason, valorant gets very little discussion on 4chan despite having relatively high MAU and often being one of the most streamed games on twitch
I think there just isn't much overlap between valorant's mostly zoomer target audience and 4chan's userbase

lull you to sleep strategies. viper kj cypher stall fest

watched some last year and this year. root for any non meta comp that can make plays not play time each and every round. usually just expect some lame shit to win so lost interest

thats every game at a high level though. play defense and stall wait for opponent to make mistake instead of initiating any plays yourself. games and sports at a high level are snoozefests

thats skillful itself to survive and make your opponent miss and capitalize. but boring to spectate. why everyone likes prx and edg. kinda like the neon team too heretics

this is a very underrated thing for valo. its so interesting to watch others too and for the streamer themselves to play or learn. Its always on top, other than top CS2 games, regular valo stats clear CS2 hard. only league beats it

Bronze 2 here. I would like to know how to play for fun, and not with the fear of losing the last low elo or falling into frankly weak allies. it depends on the mentality, I guess, how to fix it?
>>
>>1312482
>playing ranked on an alt account for fun while still trying to win, to try weapons I rarely use and practicing characters and roles I don't main
>playing on the main account to tryhard as much as possible, using only my mains and weapons I actually know how to use to some extend
I would tell you to play unranked but unranked is too unpredictable and it doesn't have the risk/reward of gaining and losing elo so I find it boring, my alt account is always a rank lower than my main but that's okay since I am playing in a sub optimal way on that acc, alternatively you can do this:
>reach your peak rank on account A
>if you feel stressed about demotion play on account B until you reach your peak rank there too
>go back to account A and try to climb again
>repeat
>no need to worry about a demotion since your other account is always at your peak rank
Cons of dual account: no skins on account B
Pros of dual account: knowing you need no skins to be good at the game

i am everyone. liked em last year for being new and shitting on boring teams

yea games shit. play support team sits in smoke. play duelist team sits in smoke. play ct everyone starts attacking
>>
>>1315138
I will never understand my team or my duelists who peek everything on CT, unable to do the same on T side. Me, a cypher player has to rush with the team and trade kills because 4 other players cant entry a site, open up their faggot voice chat and ask me to stop lurking and play with the team. It still doesnt work out 50% of the time because the duelists/controllers peek mid courage on CT vanishes when they have to entry. I've felt initiators were more positive to entry on T side than the other faggots after plat/diamond.
>>
Flashes in this game are strong
>>
I'm cs player not even high rank but damn valorant players are bad.
I was placed in plat 1 while topping the scoreboard in all matches, I barely know any lineups or anything in this map.
Nobody in this game is lurking or have any idea of any starts. When I lurk or try to get map control early my team starts to yell in voice why am I not there with them aiming at the enemy smoke or sage wall while doing nothing.

Is this the level of players in this game ??
>>
>>1315511
sounds like your average cs lobby man
>>
>>1315515
idk in cs even low rank players understand the concept of 1-3-1 2-1-3 etc but here its just 5 guys running to site and dying. rinse and repeat
>>
>>1315511
>When I lurk or try to get map control early my team starts to yell in voice why am I not there with them
based lurking Reyna
>>
>>1315547
CS players just spin a roulette in their head telling them where to go that round. Same as valo players. They're all stupid, it's low rank dude.

You can't tell me that 10k shitters actually understand why they need outside control on nuke, or how it forces the CTs to do certain uncomfortable things like make upper weaker. They can 1-3-1 mirage but your guy lurking palace is never gonna fish for a timing, your mid players don't know that they're on a timer until the CT reagress picks them apart. They're clueless.

5-man util dumping a site in valo is way stronger than you'd expect(because the map is more cramped and RC drone dogs that stun you are just absurdly strong). You can't just play a comfy spot like inferno pit and smoke mollies that come your way. If someone mollies you off a spot in valo, you have to walk out or die.

You gotta get humbled, you don't really know either game.
>>
>>1261330
Momma raised no quitter. I will NEVER surrender. You can leave, or stay and put up a fight. Your bitch mentality makes me mad. I've won several games that were thought to be lost. Things can turn around quick. Even worse are the ones that wanna FF after like 0:3. Pathetic. Good thing that was only a thing in silver/gold matches or unranked.
>>
>>1316239
This but I also enjoy the feeling of keeping some quitter bitch locked in a game he doesn't enjoy.
>what if he trolls / stops trying to win
idc I've transcended winning and losing. All I care about is being on top of my game.
>>
someone make a general op
>>
I will NEVER understand duelist retarded niggers that stay behind and never go in first.
Or dry peeking with chars like reyna/phoenix for some stupid decision, 0 thought process from these subhumans.
>OH NO WHAT IF NO ONE IS THERE AND IM JUST WASTING MY UTIL
>>
>>1316393
They're probably waiting for support util. Put yourself in their shoes. Would you want to entry dry with no teammates to trade you out?

If you've done everything you can (e.g. call what util and where you're gonna throw) then it'll make it more comfortable for them to die for your team.
If they still don't go, then literally just bait them until the round ends. What are they gonna do, flame you for not entrying with your drone?
>>
>>1316404
>Would you want to entry dry with no teammates to trade you out?
yes because that's literally my job
if i'm neon i throw a stun put a wall and dash in site
if i'm jett i put a smoke and dash in it
if i'm phoenix i throw a molotov flash put a wall
the only shitty duelist that can't do that is reyna and only has a single flash as an entry tool

i typed that post because i had a phoenix that would dry peek like a retard constantly

people have this perception that you need to have godlike aim to pick duelist when in reality you just need to have balls to enter first and die

I don't usually alt-F4 my games if people refuse to recognize that they're obviously getting out-aimed and that's why we're 1-7, I can just fuck around and bhop with a knife or something and entertain myself while the rest of you suffer, but if I hear that "never back down never give up" shit I'm alt-F4ing so fast you won't even be able to get an extra ult charge off of me.

Best part is that I'm usually the only player going positive and the rest of my team starts getting salty and blaming me for not sitting around and 5-man stare at a Sage wall and never rotating so I'm the only one of any use on the team and they still have the audacity to blame me for not carrying them and then also try to trap me in the game.

People like you have ego issues and need to humble yourself, your life does not revolve around winning this game.

Out of the ~20 people i play faceit with on cs 0 watch twitch for anything other than the cs tournaments. Nobody gives a shit about some parasocial relationship bullshit and it's more time efficient to get strats and lineups from tiktok or youtube. Twitch viewership isn't indicative of anything other than the age group the playerbase is in just like the 4chan threads.

Those are the gamemodes are filled with either lvl 400 hardstuck Ascendants trying to feed their ego by killing newer players and people who just installed the game 5 minutes ago. There is zero strategy or economy in those 2 modes, why not just play team deathmatch at that point? I use these gamemodes to do the weekly missions.

Sunset?
I was going to tell you to check valoplant.gg but the only arrow on sunset attack for mid in that website is not what you are looking for:
https://valoplant.gg/lineup/9-a-100-103-mQQ6iFc4C00-29
Click the character icon button to see the video, keep that website around, it helps a lot with lineup ideas, other maps have way more lineups for Sova, I guess Sova is not meta in Sunset
I found a better one
https://youtu.be/M-JaBRudlhM&t=193s
But you are better off by making a typing "sova lineups for x map" on youtube or making a lineup yourself by starting a custom game alone with cheats allowed and practicing until you get what you are looking for, just don't make it too complicated because you may forget it, get in a corner and aim to an easy spot in the skybox or something.
