CS:GO: A Tale of Trolls

Solo queuing for a competitive match in CS:GO is sometimes a gamble, there’s no doubt about that. You’ve got potential for trolls, people who don’t communicate, and straight up arseholes. But since it’s mostly all I play, I accept this truth and just dive into a game and hope for the best. But this is beyond my worst expectations. These guys were quite annoying on the mic to begin with and the worst part is there was two of them so we couldn’t even kick them.

Ok, maybe they’re annoying but at least they’re trying. Right? Ok, maybe they just got off to a really bad start and accidentally killed four teammates in four rounds. Right!? Ok, whom am I kidding. These guys are trolls or are trying very hard to derank.

Another round, another two team kills. How were these guys not yet automatically kicked out of the match!? Also it looks like Ghostofdead threw in the towel and just quit, can’t really say I blame him.

Two team killing trolls and a bot. How it was 2-3 for the other team at this point is beyond me.

They eventually ended up quitting all together but it was far too late for me and thatmexican619 (props to him for sticking around and trying with me). If those two would have actually tried we could’ve easily won this match. The fact that we made it 16-8, I put up a 42-20 KD, 107 points on my own (not to mention the kills on the bots) makes me think the other team saw an easy win and didn’t try too hard though. Ah well, let’s hope I don’t queue up with people like this again…

A wild Dragonlore appeared!

It’s definitely not everyday I come across one of these (especially in such great condition!) so I couldn’t resist getting a snap of it. The guy named Ace was definitely loaded. Not only did he have gloves and a pricey knife, his inventory was full of other high end skins and multiple knives. God damn.

CS:GO glitch art

So needless to say I’ve recorded my CS:GO games for a while, mostly for my ACOF series but also for some other various things I want to throw together. I’ve recently switched my recording method and noticed that something (though rarely) I catch a frame that glitches out a bit. They look kind of neat so I thought I’d post them for those curious. And technically these are no CS:GO glitches but rather video glitches. Meh.

Well that sucks

When solo queuing competitive matches you always run the risk of getting some shitty teammates. Sometimes you get the person without a mic who can’t communicate or sometimes it’s the person who just doesn’t listen and does their own thing. Sometimes it can be a toxic player who thinks everyone else on the team sucks or sometimes you can just end with a troll who griefs your team. In this case I feel bad for @sty1e since one by one his whole team kept rage quitting. It’s really a shame since at the half his/her team was doing just fine. Props to @sty1e for sticking with it until the end though. Unfortunately I’ve been in those shoes too:

Missed connections: CS:GO edition

I feel like these two searching for a team in nearby, yet separate, lobbies were destined to play together. Alas, after 10 or so minutes never did I see them join each other’s and I think they never crossed paths again. It’s a shame, but it looks like it was never meant to be.
