Today I love to talk about an integral section of my computer/technology career. Unexpectedly, it’s my skill on the game called Counter-Strike. I would like to impart to my readers my knowledge which helped me to be regarded as kind of an “expert” on the field of the said game. A lot more than anything, I wish to coach you on how be the best on it. Also, I would like to discuss the significance it has in my life and the potential it has to the touch others’lives too.
I can’t imagine life without Counter-Strike (specifically the version 1.3 one). Needless to say, you are able to tell that I’m nostalgic about it. I learned about the newest version that the makers of Counter-Strike are developing today, which is Counter-Strike Global Offensive. I can already see the significance of your experience on playing Counter-Strike 1.3 on becoming good on that latest version; which can become handy especially given that on the tournaments of the stuff, you can get something over a million dollars as a prize.
So, let’s get into the heart of it: how to be good on counter-strike 1.3? Number 1, Brightness. Enemies are difficult to see with the default brightness of the game. Meaning, if you’re not the server of the game this is a necessity (this may appear unnecessary but trust me it is. It sounds senseless but it’s not). So, to manage to get it done, type “map de_dust” on the console. Await the console to get you to (guess where) de_dust. After, click ~, and type and enter on the console “brightness 999.” After that, enter “map de_dust” again. Wait until it gets you to de_dust again skincashier. Just now, it has the perfect brightness which will surely allow you to differentiate someone who is your enemy and friend on the game.
Number 2: Controls. Before even needs to play the game, go to the controls part. Click defaults. After that, change how you can buy with F1 instead of B; and how to buy bombs with F4 instead of M. For those of you who’re curious, this may make you buy weapons, ammunition, and bombs faster which could make you more effective on the game. Note, buy ammunitions with F1 + 6 and F1 + 7, as opposed to the alternative version. Trust me on this.
Number 3: Don’t function as the server as much as possible. This really is quite crucial. The most crucial reason why is that you would not manage to use technique number 1, which is the brightness part. There is virtually no method of doing it. Plus, if you’re playing in a web cafe, which is what probably may be the case (because that is the best way to play it with other people; trust me), you cannot quit just anytime that you want because you would annoy other players. Whenever you quit the game, other players will undoubtedly be disconnected to the game too. I would not worry so much on this certain technique, but I recently thought you need to know something about it.
Number 4: Weapon choice. Let’s face the elephant in the room. The sole best weapon choice for the game may be the sniper one. Pair it with pistol F1 + 1 and you’ve a great combo. The important thing here is practice. Train utilising the sniper one so you kill enemies precisely as fast as you possibly can and you would often be good to go. Plus, if you master making use of your pistol to kill enemies with headshots that will be a plus. Not that I’m overselling, you can test other weapons but this may often be the perfect combo/one.
Number 5: Strategic positioning on the game. This really is about where you continue the game (the path you choose). The trick here is choosing maximum efficiency. What I mean here is choose your position on the game so you balance your safety and ability to kill enemies in the best way. Players on this game are very vulnerable. You will get killed in literally an instant. Protect yourself as much as possible without losing your ability to kill enemies. As you already chose your perfect pair of weapons, this may be like a walk in the park. With a sniper, pick a place where you are able to use it such that you are hidden but at the same time has got the vision to hunt your preys.
Number 6: Map choice: you just have three choices for this: cs_deathmatch, de_dust, de_dust2. Why? It is really tempting to say just because when you are already into the game, as it is simply the way in which it is. However, for beginners on the market, it is simply the way in which it is because it will make the game fairer if do you know what I mean. There is no special treatment and/or unfair advantage for either teams. Therefore, players equally enjoy the game (which is definitely an excellent thing).
Needless to say, it features a significant affect my life. A lot more than anything, it taught me how to be a team player and accept defeat graciously. It is a game where you may be yourself, make mistakes, get defeated or win with no pressure or someone judging you. Personally, it is a great environment to stay as a child. It may also put into my tech-savvyness. Despite it’s violent connotation, I disagree so it has negative impacts on anybody. So far, it didn’t lead me to be violent to other people. Contrary, it made me more compassionate, warm, and social.
