I hate Counter Strike Go (why CS Go sucks)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock or old, you’ve played first person shooters. It’s a defining genre most gamers take to instantly. Most of these games are fairly intuitive. Every FPS can be described as running around shooting stuff – that’s pretty much it.

What separates great FPS’s from average are mechanics, weapon selection, maps and enjoyment.

Sadly no matter how good the mechanics, weapons and maps are in CS Go. The enjoyment factor is pillaged by one glaring problem – but we’ll get to that in a minute.

Let’s talk about intuition first. One would think when you hold an AK-47 at someone from 2m away and unload a clip, you should bloody well hit them. NOT in CS GO. This happened to me today. I was camping a corner, a guy came around and I was aiming at his stomach, I held the trigger down. He was literally 2m away.

Let me be clear – it’s not physically possible for bullets to avoid a target from 2m away! Now you purists might say learn the spray pattern – well indeed hence the gun was aimed at his stomach, this means I should have got 2-3 chest shots in right?

And this leads us to the next glaring issue.

Look at an enemy – Dead, Put your head around a corner – Dead, Try unload a clip – “You hit enemy for 11 with 3 bullets” vs “112 damage with 1 bullet by enemy”, result – Dead, Try camp – Dead, Try move – Dead. Breath – dead. Spawn – Dead

This game is divided into 2 groups. The super elite who can kill you just by thinking about it. Now I can’t emphasize enough how good these players are. They’re so good in virtually every match I’ve played there have been accusations of auto aiming. Well I can’t say this is happening – maybe they just do nothing else other than play CS all day long. I bet after 12000 hours of playing you might be good too.

Until then – the cannon fodder. Anyone else installing this game or trying to get into it. There is no middle ground. Right from the start you play against useless bots, or super fucking extreme world championship type players.

So is this enjoyable?

I guess if you’re that good – then new players must just seem like defenseless chickens. When you’re the one getting your ass shot off every 2 seconds, no it’s not enjoyable. I mean forget actual aiming. Before you can click your mouse you’re dead – even if you see an enemy.

When you try your best to get some kills and can’t. Or you do get a kill or two in from some fluke of luck, only to have your ass shot off by “a real player”.

So the game sucks and the guns feel broken. Or maybe I just suck, but I think I’ll never be super elite.

I would say unless you’re super talented with FPS games or enjoy getting your ass shot off, you’re going to have a bad day.

Ahmed Mohamed is lying and why you shouldn’t think he’s a victim.

Thank the teachers

Let’s get this out of the way. The teachers in this matter acted responsible and were looking out for the safety of the other students. When a kid brings in a device that looks like a bomb to school, that threat should be taken seriously. The US has a history of shocking school violence and killings. The teachers acted responsibly and were alert and attentive, looking out for the safety of all kids in the school.

Ahmed Mohamed is lying

He calls himself an inventor and claimed not only did he invent the clock but that he also invented the circuitry in the clock and circuitry for other devices.

Here he is lying : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mW4w0Y1OXE this is evident within the first 30 seconds of the clip.

The device did look like a bomb

Let’s get this out of the way, the so called “clock” primarily appears to resemble a Hollywood bomb. He himself claims he changed some aspects of the “device” to make it look less suspicious.

The clock is a convenient cover story

Surely if the kid knew it could cause issues, to the point where he claims he made some minor changes, he should have made his teachers aware of the device. The kid is 14 years old, yes that’s 2 years away from driving age in the US. He isn’t 5 years old. He knew very well if he did get into trouble he could fall back on “It was a clock, and I’m Islamic”.

So much Islamophobia going around

It wouldn’t take much for a teenager or a group of them to know that they could always play the race / religion card against the situation. Perhaps that is the whole point of this exercise.

We need to toughen up

Just because the kid is Islamic and his name is Mohammed doesn’t give the kid the right to bring in a hoax bomb and then consider himself the victim when he gets arrested. Bomb threats are a serious matter and deserving of prison time.

Playing the Islamic card should be no excuse.

At no point has the kid offered any kind of apology or taken any responsibility for the matter

It’s simple the kid brought in a hoax bomb to school. A device that looked like a bomb, yet he doesn’t at any point say “I’m sorry if my device did look like a bomb and cause alarm”.

He’s not a role model but a disgrace

The message should be – “Kids be careful what you bring to school”. Instead the message he’s putting out is “Kids if you’re Islamic you can very well prank the system and then end up looking like the victim”.
