More Counter-Strike! More Counter-Strike!
Played some more CS:S, had a lot of fun. I’ve decided that I prefer the USP over the Desert Eagle, but I have a feeling that might hurt me in the long run. I keep doing almost well with the M4, but every time I touch the AK-47 I get lit up. I think I need to hit up that deathmatch server…
My goal right now is to break even when it comes to my kills and deaths. Last match I played I went 24/24, leaving me with a K/D of 1. Realistically, I’ll be a little bit under that, but if I have a really good match I should be at least be even.
Current Goal Checklist:
Oh, I also have some neat little skins installed. Nothing too crazy, but they add some team colors to the character models. Helps my inner Spartan relax in this unique environment of Counter-Strike. I still don’t like flashbangs.
Not a bad idea! The server I’ve been spending time on is mostly on de_dust2 as well, and the people there have been really friendly, though I really need to get some playtime in with Terrorist weapons, mostly the AK-47 and that one gun with the scope on it. I’ll definitely pop on there sometime tonight!
Cool! Counter-Strike! That thing I always installed when I wanted to grief on Garry’s Mod roleplay servers! It’s a game? Huh?
I was sitting on my Steam Library at about 2:00 AM and saw Counter-Strike: Source, so I figured I’d give it a go. I started off finding a server that wouldn’t lag for me (30 average ping! yes please!).
I started off my first night of CS:S messing around with the shotgun on de_dust2. I did fairly poorly, managing to snag a few kills off of people reloading or looking the other way. Halfway through my first game, people started mentioning a place called “short”. I was clueless, but I figured I’d pick up on it. They kept talking about this “short” place, so I popped on the mic asking what a “short” was.
This was where my team realized that I was new to the game. Instead of harassing me for not being experienced, they surprised me by informing me that short was a section in the middle of the map.
One player told me to use assault rifles and the desert eagle until I got a solid feel for the game, and it didn’t take long for me to see results. There were a lot of rounds where I couldn’t afford an assault rifle, so I’d use the desert eagle until I found a weapon. I also found a lot of grenades, most of which I’d bounce off a wall back in my face. I really don’t like flashbangs.
