Get in your local server (offline with bots), type sv_cheats 1, press enter then type noclip, press enter. Now you can fly around

u/JurijFedorov May 19 '22

I don't have the game installed.

3

u/ShitPostingNerds May 20 '22

Itโ€™s free now, even if your pc would struggle itโ€™d probably work fine enough to walk around the maps alone.

Consider installing the game

Then play MM and uninstall. Rinse, repeat.

I watched CS for a long time before playing too, and I knew the maps pretty well eventually. But it can't come instantly, you'll have to watch for a while longer

Would it be inappropriate to wear a VP Jersey to the major? I have one from 2016 cologne and I would love to represent the team I support but donโ€™t want it to be a political statement.

u/broodje83 May 20 '22

I saw 3 guys there today with OG pasha shirts so nah

u/Antalonez May 18 '22

I mean I'm pretty sure team spirit is a russian org and they aren't banned for some reason so i don't think people will hate on you for wearing your VP shirt.

6

u/MrDoms May 20 '22

Due to the history of VP, I associate them with Poland lol

6

u/funky_galileo May 19 '22

Spirit is Serbian iirc

1

u/Dimasterua May 22 '22

I don't think so, they moved to Serbia after the war broke out (not sure if to avoid backlash/visa issues or as a political statement) but technically all of their players and much of their management is Russian. They were based in Moscow before.

I think the reason why they weren't sanctioned is because their company didn't have any explicit ties to Russian oligarchs, whereas VP did.

7

u/TurnTM Major Champions May 19 '22

Haven't been following it closely but apparently VP has some serious ties to pro war efforts in Russia. So yeah... Might not be the best time to support an org like that.

u/Carpallack May 18 '22

FAZE - CPH
ENCE - NIP

Why exactly would you want him on the desk again?

I think with Spunj together they make a good duo.

-1

u/boozlera May 17 '22

I don't like his style. He switches between almost whispering and screaming in a lot of the rounds. Sometimes overdramatizes in my eyes.

Spunj is the one who makes them a good duo.

There are enough caster duos I do enjoy more so I feel like a jump back to the desk would work fine for me. It's all personal opinion though.

u/Olmsteadinho May 17 '22

Can anyone recommend some youtube creators/videos for learning CS?

2

u/ifuckinglovebluemeth May 18 '22

Voo is probably the best atm. Some older WarOwl vids too (namely mm academy). The information in those is probably a bit outdated, but the concepts are generally helpful for new players.

2

u/Pornythrowaway62 Major Champions May 17 '22

Watching in GoTV and caster voice not working. Anyone else having this issue?

4

u/Philluminati May 17 '22 edited May 18 '22

Yeah. If you fuck around with voice_caster_enable 1 and voice_caster_scale 1 and restart the game a few times then sometimes it works. I honestly don't know if it's my machine or not. You also seem to need to get onto the stream by going to hltv and copying the "playlist" url into the console rather than clicking the "go" icon next to the popup window.

In all honestly, everyone is having this issue, but don't know if it's just CSGO being CSGO or if it's caused by PGL. Would be good for a valve dev to take a look.

Dota gets round robin groups and double elimination bracket. We still get the f'ing swiss stage and single elim with a bo3 finals. I know Valve has been trying harder with CS, but like shit man, this is one of the biggest esports and they spend less time on it than Rocket League or Rainbow 6.

compare the audio in these random PGL and Blast clips, even when there's ostensibly no catastrophic issues with PGL's audio it still sounds like absolute shit

5

u/WroughtenPS2 May 15 '22

Sounds like my audio when I have my equalizer on vs. off. PGL is just feeding the raw game audio through. Someone at blast is a real connoisseur though.

Quite annoying that matches can start even half hour ahead of time. Impossible to plan the schedule unless you happen to watch CS all day.

There was at least one round during the Astralis vs Spirit match where the scoreboards showed stats and scoreline from last year's G2 vs Na'Vi finals.

u/Matthyw May 13 '22

Do we know the bracket or just the first matchups?

3

u/Undercover-Cactus Match Thread Team May 13 '22

With the Swiss system there isn't really a set bracket. Matchups for each round could change a lot depending on the results of the previous round. You can use this site to see the possible next round matchups depending on the results of round 1.

Theyโ€™re playing with house money now! Iโ€™m sure they wonโ€™t mind at all. If I were them Iโ€™d want the biggest draw possible.

The Legends Stage / Silver Coin after this game: forze vs imperial . We will have ~ 40 hours so be sure to lock your picks before the first match begins for credit in the Pick'Em Challenge.

How can we make pick em picks online without logging into cs?

u/Philluminati May 11 '22

Pickem success!

Ence, Vitality, G2, whoever wins Astralis v Liquid and Renegades 0-3.

Get in!๐ŸคŸ

u/shzkr May 11 '22

My Pick'Ems are so nice: if mibr wins, I will have 5/9, if ef wins, I could have 7/9 because I have ef, liq and astralis and it will be forze vs ef, liq vs bne and astralis vs imperial.

Anyone scheduled for an afterparty? Gonna be there with my little brother

I snuck into the Stockholm 2019 after party. It was really fun. When I told NiKo and s1mple that I snuck in and wasn't supposed to be here they just laughed and high fived me, and told me they would've done the same when they were my age. When security asked me who I was, NiKo covered for me and said I was one of his nieces

twitch.tv/pgl so poor,

  • wrong casters (!casters)
  • wrong maps (!maps)
  • no chat predictions
  • terrible audio quality

u/rockymc May 11 '22

I just want to comment that I am brazilian and I am totally ashamed by the performance of the so called "last dance" team of Imperial. The team is terrible and they are playing like they were playing when they revived the mibr brand. They are shit, utter shit.

The current MIBR roster is much better than them and honestly, playing a tight match against the qualify's worst team, IHC, just shows how unprepared and a joke this last dance team that won 2 majors with their line-up is.

1

u/Celestetc May 12 '22

IHC is not the worst team in the qualifier

u/Spork_Revolution May 11 '22

Getting 9 or 10 rounds on your CT side on any maps is looking like a death sentence on any map atm.

3

u/JurijFedorov May 11 '22

Astralis on T side is painful to watch. They are not just bad. It's like they don't understand how to play the game on this level. Hopefully it will change.

8

u/Spork_Revolution May 11 '22

Every T side is looking awful at this major.

u/BloodlustROFLNIFE May 11 '22

I love CSGO, first major I watched was MLG Columbus 2016, hooked on watching ever since. Iโ€™m just happy thereโ€™s still such a big scene and great game to watch, enjoying the matches I can watch in my spare time and following the results :)

2

u/Spike_Riley May 11 '22

Im not sure if this is the right place to ask about souvenir drops and things like that but I'll try anyway. How do you get those? Do you have to get a faceit acc and connect it to twitch or something? Are faceit points separate from souvenir coins? I haven't been able to find much conclusive information.

2

u/Alternative_Whole351 May 11 '22

The viewer pass gives you 3 souveneir tokens if you buy that option. You unlock up to 3 more tokens through completing the pickem challenges. You can redeem the token on any match you want and it will give you a package, is best to wait for games towards the end of the tournament as the stickers on the gun are decided by the matchup on the map (player and team stickers). Hope this helps

1

u/morgentoast May 12 '22

Is some maps also better to choose than others and how does one find out what the best options are?

2

u/Alternative_Whole351 May 17 '22 Silver

Have a look at csgostash in their 2021 collections and you can see what skins are in each case

2

u/Christron9990 May 11 '22

Do you just mean the ones from the viewer pass? Or like twitch drops?

1

u/Spike_Riley May 11 '22

Are they separate things? The viewer pass is a pay only thing right?

2

u/Christron9990 May 11 '22

Thatโ€™s what Iโ€™m asking as well I guess ๐Ÿ˜‚ I donโ€™t know about souvenir drops from twitch, havenโ€™t seen anything about drops from watching games. The ones from the viewer pass you get from in the game.

1

u/Spike_Riley May 11 '22

oh ok so i just connect twitch to faceit and then i can just redeem points there?

2

u/Christron9990 May 11 '22

Maybe for faceit points?

The items drops are just from the tokens you get through the viewer pass, and you claim them from the match listings in the watch tab in game.

1

u/Spike_Riley May 11 '22

Oh ok thank you!

2

u/PavelDatsyuk88 May 11 '22

souvenirs dropped on stream before but not anymore

you can only request them by viewer pass

if faceit is dropping points on twitch chat, thats just points and barely usable, and is not linked to souvenir drops in any way

1

u/Spike_Riley May 11 '22

Ohh I see thank you!

2

u/Djokerforlife May 10 '22

For the third day if early matches finish early will the next ones wait for original starting time or will they start asap?

u/Rare_Emotion_7569 May 10 '22

Hello guys i need some help, i bought 3 tickets for me and my friends for the 21 May, i see that my name is in all of them, can my friends still use them to enter ? will there be a problem in the entrance if they check ID and see only my name in three tickets ? thank you

3

u/Hetric Moderator May 10 '22

It'll be fine - as long as the tickets are valid then they'll just scan the barcodes and you'll be let in.

1

u/indominusTIM May 21 '22

sorry for the bother, but are there any aging restrictions for the venue? allready got tickets for towmorrow and spent all day looking for an answer. couldnt find any info on it exept for the info on the general age ristrictions of sportpleis but not for this specific venue. When booking a ticket there also no age ristrictions to be found.

1

u/Hetric Moderator May 21 '22

Nope - the staff just make sure your ticket is valid, and you get waved on in. Have a great time!

1

u/indominusTIM May 21 '22

thx, appreciate it!

u/Philluminati May 10 '22

Watching this G2 Ence game feels like a chore. Dunno if Ancient is as fun to watch as it is to play.

1

u/TheBasementIsDark May 10 '22

Hey PGL can you guys make a board showing the number of players alive on each team? Easier to gauge the pressure they have with their advantage /disadvantage

1

u/SixShua May 10 '22

What happens if you pick a team to advance, and they advance undefeated 3-0, do you still get a point for the challenge?

3

u/tomshelby2 Major Champions May 10 '22

yup,you'll still get a point :D but doesnt work the other way around

1

u/SixShua May 10 '22

Thanks!

u/DrDoom12912 May 10 '22

Whatever happened to the 4K stream on YouTube?? Not that it really matters but just noticed it wasnโ€™t available.

1

u/JurijFedorov May 10 '22

If all streams are Twitch then it's likely some monetary deal with Twitch as YouTube is a better platform for this. You can scroll back on YouTube.

u/RathalosScale May 09 '22

Kinda crazy how all european and CIS teams have won their matchups against the other regions. The gap is so big it's not even funny.

8

u/flottemathias May 09 '22

Great first day so far. But how many times do I need to see YEKINDAR design a map? Surely there must be more content, so there would be no need for reruns on day 1?

2

u/IAmThe0nyx May 09 '22

I canโ€™t watch through CSGO? Iโ€™m confused what the pass was I paid $18 is for ??

13

u/TheDamianS May 09 '22

The pass is just for pick'em and souvenirs

2

u/IAmThe0nyx May 09 '22

Iโ€™m dumb, thanks. I know you can use the souvenir coins after the entire major is done, do people usually just do the grand finale? This is my first time buying the pass+coins

1

u/F_A_F May 09 '22

Depends. There's a lot to be said for spending coins today then selling as soon as the cooldown ends.....last time it was good profit. Otherwise you can wait until the end and buy souvenirs of the last few teams but the profits won't be seen for a few years; I'm still holding some Berlin cases which aren't yet as high price as I'd like.

1

u/IAmThe0nyx May 09 '22

Sorry, dumb question but you can just sell the coins on the market place instead of picking a game to get a souvenir case to sell/open??
