Too complicated. Same reason League hasnt made the leap yet. CSGO involves a ton of skill, but it is incredibly simple to understand. I have played video games of all types my whole life and whenever I watch a LoL highlight I literally stare at the screen having no idea what is happening for several minutes. Zero idea what is happening. No way you can sell that. If you watch the games tonight on TBS, you will see how simple and easy to access it is.

League and DOTA are what actually rustle me.

They're spawned from a UMS game (mini-game) literally inside of starcraft, which then moved to a mod inside of warcraft.

They have 4 buttons and are incredibly easy to play, which is why MOBA's have become so much more popular than starcraft. People lose at starcraft and get too frustrated at how bad they are to keep playing. Game is too difficult for it's own good





CS I don't really care about because I've just never been an FPS guy

i remember one time during dazed stream he said he would prefer streaming at this point lolol yea ok cope much

agreed. But to be fair to them, there was no regulations on csgol and no written rules. If they knew that getting caught meant getting permanently banned from a game that is growing rapidly, I doubt they would of done it.

I was watching steel's stream and he said they only reason they did it is because they didn't think they would get caught because csgol is not valve owned and is not regulated AND if they did get caught on a stupid cevo match that meant nothing (regular season was over for IBP, they were the 1st seed in playoffs)

But I'm glad they got caught. fukkin scumbags threw.

Fukced up part is Ska didn't get caught because no skins were given directly to his account. I heard he actually threw with steel and only accepted cash for the throw or waited to get his skins after a certain period of time. Swag said "ska even agreed to throw. he was part of it"

Young Stew is the best player in NA because of his consistency and his versatility. He can awp, entry, clutch, pistol, etc. He's a complete player (srs)

no. Freakazoid is a better entry fragger, but slemmy is actually an IGL and a better support player for shroud, stewie, and n0thing.

If freakazoid was in the line up with n0thing as an igl. there would be no structure.

I listened to the VOD of when seangares was IGL and he literally had to tell ryan to "Stfu" because he was trying to tell seangares what to do and his opinions on his strats LOL. Ryan is a good entry fragger but too selfish and not a good support/team player.
