About This Game

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched 14 years ago.

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

"Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombardi at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS' award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac."

Let's make this straight,

Cheat developers making tons of money (million dolar market) from selling hack programs for piece of sh**s. It's a huge market.

It's so easy to cheat on CS:GO, cheat developers making ads on social media or search engines. Just look up on internet you will see how easy it is...

And this piece of sh**s just want to ruin yor game for lolz. They never get banned, almost every game (1 in every 3 game statistically) has cheaters. Even if you get banned (you must be a really blatant one) you can grab another copy for half price in few weeks again. Think about a game, even the "PROs" are cheating.

Other than that, there is s***bags wants your skins for trade income and try to scam or hack you constantly. You will see lots of famous streamers getting scammed for skins. Think about the number of players.

Don't forget the gambling either. Tons of scammers, lawsuits, 3rd party gambling sites with fake streamers (It's bad for Valve too because Valve doesn't get money from them sadly) and little kids' money who have no idea what gambling is. 10K $$$ in a minute!!

And I'm not even talking about smurfs, toxic players (but you can get banned for a week for kicking them) , 64 tick, hit registry issues and more...

But the funny part is, Valve, so called great developers of this game doing guess what, adding new skins and new gun sounds. Because this game's major problem is not so good pistol sounds and not enough skins to grab your money. They just want MORE!

By buying this game you are becoming a part of this dreadful community. If you are buying this on sale, either you are a smurf or a cheater, or you are just a poor soul who have no idea...

So am I recommend this game? NO!

Just do yourself a favor, get a good meal or help someone in need. Valve has enough...

Nobody likes this game, but we all play it. It's that game you hate, yet you continue to play it. Sometimes you even dump large sums of money into it, and hate it still afterwards. But what are you gonna do? Play again.
How much do I hate this game out of 10? 9/10.
How likely am I to play this game again shortly? 10/10

After playing Counter-Strike for 11 years i can say csgo is a pure disappointment.

i played this game entirely competitive, so my rating is mostly about competitive gameplay, also i am apologizing in advance for my english since im not a native speaker.

well, where should is start.

i played the game semi-professional in the german scene.

i loved counter strike and as i said i played this game long, very long, but im tired of it.
the most annyonig factor for me are the update politics, valve is making way too less progress in terms of gameplay mechanics and fixing long time problems.
(first bullet accuracy, jump bullet accuracy, rng factor, not to mention the worst anti cheat system ever created, the jumping ssg08 - or is it a feature now?)
instead of fixing problems which are sometimes destroying u a whole match and the whole fun experience in this game, they add senseless and annoying as f**k sounds, also adding some sprays to "honor" pro players, yeah, great, its a good thing they are into esport but why dont they use their time fixing these problems, obviously they are working on csgo.

yeah i know, the cheating problem is just a money making system for valve, still it destroys the experience ingame.

just compare csgo to blizzard with their game overwatch as example, they are nearly updating the game weekly-wise and its entirely about gameplay features, nerfing, buffing and making the game more and more playable and less buggy.

valve needs years for these kind of updates and they are still not capable of reducing the rng factor.

i need to admit, in terms of a competitive shooter this game is unrivalled and i think thats the major problem.
no other fps-game is halfway as good and polarizing as csgo so valve is in no need to patch this game proper.
i still like to watch the esports scene and the major tourneys, but playing it myself became rare for me since im raging too much about issues which have been out there for years.

edit: there is much more to write and rate but i dont want to make the post too long, i guess people who are playing at a high level understand my problem.

"omg are you a grill"

Gas-fueled grills typically use propane (LP) or natural gas (NG) as their fuel source, with gas-flame either cooking food directly or heating grilling elements which in turn radiate the heat necessary to cook food. Gas grills are available in sizes ranging from small, single steak grills up to large, industrial sized restaurant grills which are able to cook enough meat to feed a hundred or more people. Gas grills are designed for either LP or NG, although it's possible to convert a grill from one gas source to another.

The majority of gas grills follow the cart grill design concept: the grill unit itself is attached to a wheeled frame that holds the fuel tank. The wheeled frame may also support side tables and other features.

A recent trend in gas grills is for manufacturers to add an infrared radiant burner to the back of the grill enclosure. This radiant burner provides an even heat across the burner and is intended for use with a horizontal rotisserie. A meat item (whole chicken, beef roast, pork loin roast) is placed on a metal skewer that is rotated by an electric motor. Smaller cuts of meat can be grilled in this manner using a round metal basket that slips over the metal skewer.

Another type of gas grill gaining popularity is called a flattop grill. According to Hearth and Home magazine, flattop grills "on which food cooks on a griddlelike surface and is not exposed to an open flame at all" is an emerging trend in the outdoor grilling market.

A small metal "smoker box" containing wood chips may be used on a gas grill to give a smoky flavor to the grilled foods. Although, barbecue purists would argue that to get a true smoky flavor (and smoke ring) the user has to cook low and slow, indirectly and using wood or charcoal. Gas grills are difficult to maintain at the low temperatures required (~225-250 °F), especially for extended periods.
