Skins don't impact gameplay Totally yea right totally you have an awp and see an ak fire serpent and you picked it up instead and then you get killed by an awp cause you were inspecting the skin

at 5:29 she says, that you come back to get more skins by playing. what skins does she mean? the weekly drops that are littered with this useless graffitis? you dont get more/better skins for playing. you have to pay for that. shows again how out of touch some people of valve are with this game...

Oh, and the skins you do get as a drop are complete garbage. The default skins are better than those drops

I have a feeling that valve did so much with monetization that it would actually flop when a new counter strike title comes out. Unless they are able to cross platform peoples inventories or somehow keep both games relevant. No one will like when there $1000 inventories for CSGO are now almost worthless because there is a new and better game.

I remember watching my little brother dominate on 1.6 when he was like 12 years old. He's 30 now and a world class player. One of the best in the country. He's dank. Check him out on steam. Could be on a major team easy!!!!! Should be! I've seen the best players in the world and he's just as good.

manbytheseas (4 months ago)
the most "cheated" game in the world. 10 on 10 match (no matter wich game mode you play) there's at least (yes!!) a noob cheater. Why doesn't valve public the "history" of VAC. the worst anticheat ever created. I mean, there are accounts with 2000hrs of gameplay and guess what? if you spec them you surely find a cheater. they should fix this shit and their shitty anticheat system. the game is far from what it promises and it's totally infested and broken by cheaters. don't buy it till they fix it. i have more than 6000 hrs of gameplay between cs: source and cs: go. competitive mode and their rewards it's the perfect way to attract cheaters. GOOD JOB VALVE.

Nah, this is the most bs thing ever. You just breezed by source like it meant nothing. 1.6 was better yeah, but really? You addressed nothing because you were too afraid to point out the things that made the previous games so much better than the current.
