Today I love to fairly share an integral part of my computer/technology career. Unexpectedly, it is my skill on the game called Counter-Strike. I wish to impart to my readers my knowledge which helped me to be regarded as sort of an “expert” on the field of the said game. A lot more than anything, I wish to teach you how be the very best on it. Also, I wish 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 can tell that I am nostalgic about it. I learned about the latest version that the makers of Counter-Strike are developing at this time, that is Counter-Strike Global Offensive. I can already start to see the significance of your experience on playing Counter-Strike 1.3 on becoming good on that latest version; which may become handy especially now that on the tournaments of the stuff, you will get something over a million dollars as a prize.
So, let’s enter the center of it: just 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 are not the server of the game this can be a necessity (this might seem unnecessary but believe me it is. It sounds senseless but it is not). So, to have the ability to take action, type “map de_dust” on the console skincashier. Watch for 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 one to de_dust again. Just now, it has the perfect brightness that may surely allow you to differentiate someone who is your enemy and friend on the game.
Number 2: Controls. Before even starting to play the game, visit the controls part. Click defaults. After that, change how you can get with F1 rather than B; and how to get bombs with F4 rather than M. For those of you who are curious, this may make you get 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 important reason exactly why is that you would not have the ability to use technique number 1, that is the brightness part. There is virtually no method of doing it. Plus, if you are playing in an internet cafe, that is what most likely may be the case (because that is the best way to play it with other folks; trust me), you cannot quit just anytime that you want because you would annoy other players. When you quit the game, other players will soon be disconnected to the game too. I would not worry so much on this certain technique, but I simply thought you should know something about it.
Number 4: Weapon choice. Let’s face the elephant in the room. The only best weapon choice for the game may be the sniper one. Pair it with pistol F1 + 1 and you have a great combo. The main element here’s practice. Train using the sniper one so you kill enemies precisely as fast as possible and you would always be good to go. Plus, if you master utilizing your pistol to kill enemies with headshots that will be a plus. Not too I am overselling, you can test other weapons but this may always be the perfect combo/one.
Number 5: Strategic positioning on the game. This really is about where you go on the game (the path you choose). The secret here’s choosing maximum efficiency. What I am talking about here’s choose your position on the game so you balance your safety and capability to kill enemies in the very best way. Players on this game are very vulnerable. You may get killed in literally an instant. Protect yourself as much as possible without losing your capability to kill enemies. Because you already chose your perfect set of weapons, this may end up like a walk in the park. With a sniper, pick a place where you could put it to use such that you will be hidden but at the same time frame gets the vision to hunt your preys.
Number 6: Map choice: you only have three alternatives for this: cs_deathmatch, de_dust, de_dust2. Why? It is really tempting to state just because when you are already into the game, because it is simply just how it is. However, for novices out there, it is simply just how it is really because it would 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 obviously a good thing).
Needless to say, it includes a significant affect my life. A lot more than anything, it taught me how to be always a team player and accept defeat graciously. It is really a game where you may be yourself, make mistakes, get defeated or win without pressure or someone judging you. Personally, it is a great environment to stay as a child. It might also put into my tech-savvyness. Despite it’s violent connotation, I disagree so it has negative impacts on anybody. Up to now, it didn’t lead me to be violent to other people. Contrary, it made me more compassionate, warm, and social.
