    I just tuned into the Katowice Minor 2019 and it has been dull so far. Most teams have been inconsistent too. What happened to the scene? Is this because of the updates? Is the BG mode taking over the game?

    This is so true.

    And no , BG mode doesn't have any impact on pro scene IMO.

    I'm watching some matches, especially the ones that i vote for, those whose teams are skilled

    Mousesports just got eliminated by Valiance. I can't even name one player from that team. What happened to Oskar? He's supposed to be a top tier AWPer now a bottom fragger. :frown_:

    pro leagues are interesting too.. get to see how the teams are shaping up and leading to the majors

    was sort of interested in the asia/india csgo scene until all the weird cheaters appeared.

    I watch sometimes if I have free time. Unfortunately, I have big problems with having free time this year.

    You and me both. One too many godlike aims especially on ranked matches. I'm prolly going back to sub based servers like ESEA.

    Majors looking grim atm. Most, if not all of the top teams seem to be very inconsistent. I seriously hope they step up and not get out steamed by the new Free to Play BR game.

    If you left the scene 2 years ago and came back now you might think the top teams are inconsistent but do realize the Major is just coming up so no top team will play a match to the best of their abilities. They will hold some tactics close to their chest and reveal them on the major stage.

    That being said top teams like Astralis, MiBr, NaVi, Faze and Liquid are consistent at their own maps but the rest of the teams have had a lot of shuffling going on so they feel less confident playing their own maps than before.

    Not to mention the new meta switch, AUG and SG are quite OP atm if you learn how to use them properly.

    shuffling refering to G2 , and ... that AUG and SG really ... OP

    Na, even C9 got shuffled with EU players. I guess a lot of teams experimenting this major. Faze got Adren, BIG got Xantares and Nex is back. Pretty unpredictable right now, and the meta switch is pretty bad to be honest. I mean it fits my play style well but just something about an AR having a scope in CS GO makes me mad.

    Well the thing is the only reason the game had many followings during majors is because of free souvenir drops. And after going f2p, they made it pay to win souvenirs. But the scam factor is, those who bought the game before it went f2p, were promised that they would get free souvenir upgrades / drops ...... Well this major we didn't really see that coming. Such shortcomings will affect valve and csgo's future. But we are no one to say...

    We were always getting ripped off by Valve. I mean the game barely got updates in the past, the cheating problem was rampant and Valve just kept making cosmetic items for the money. I still bought the coin cause the 10 dollars for the pass will likely be gotten back from the souvenir drops that you get for levelling up the coin. The souvenir drops are also gonna be rarer this time around since people wont be able to farm up on alternate accounts for free.

    Good point. I'm still trying to learn the AUG and SG though. I can't find heads without scopin in.

    The scope is the best part about it. At close range I dont use the scope like maybe holding short but anything higher in distance I switch to the scope. I would much rather tap with the scope than full spray. You can try recoil training maps from the workshop to get used to the SG or AUG. Aim_botz is a good map that I recommend.

    I can't do nothing about my 100+ ping and I also easily get bored when I don't hear people screaming at everyone else so training maps are a no go :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye_:

    Hhhhhh. Yeah CS GO is all about practising so valve DM servers might be your best bet if you want people screaming with $5 mics.

    You would have been disappointed seeing the major this year, even I am so mad at the AUG meta. Every map has been CT sided and if a team starts CT they end up with a huge advantage in terms of rounds won and can easily take the map based on a pistol win in the 2nd half. Valve messed up with this update right before the major.
