Why is CS:GO so popular in the world?

I think it's just FPS in general. The more realistic the better.

Granted TF2 screwed this theory, but since Tough Break TF2 screwed itself while Call of Duty, Counter Strike and othe rpopular generic shooters are still going.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41768766

and OverWatch didnt helpt TF2 point?

Epic Mount!Hero.tYu2g 41768768

Overwatch did steal TF2s thunder, but that didn't mean TF2 couldn't recover with decent weapon balances, better theme and disregarding quality over profit.

but you have to thank Overwatch, because TF2 fear to get ultra destroy.

here you get the scientific explanation

I'm not saying TF2 is totally dead. I wouldn't even say it's as dead as TFClassic. Heck I'm working on a TF2 map right now and nearly finished. (Just need custom animations and skybox needs proper decorating.)

Just TF2 was a highly praised shooter, a creative alternate to CoD, Counter Strike and the other shooters. The updates were interesting and while players complained over the quality of these updates they were well recieved.

But when VALVe started shifting interest more into making hardware, profit and unneccisary measures of security, well TF-team was dwindled down to a handful of people who barely know what they are doing with updates. Tough Break wasn't well recieved and the overhaul of the game into Meet Your Match just made the game too competitive.

I'm not saying TF2 is for casuals, but it was a nice game where you can just pick a class, learn how to use it, get blown up a few times like everyone else and not feel pressured about it. MyM just kinda encouraged players to be try hards than just enjoy the game.

But yeah, people still play the game because when updates arn't making questionable balancing, rehashing old updates for profit or making finding a game more or less inconveniant than just simply put back quick-play, TF2 is still a fun game.

Plus, I think whats left of TF-team is getting the right idea to be more dependant on community updates over their own.

It would be nice If they update the UI.
The crafting UI is boring and isnt that clear.

I mean, Almost 99% of the people I have seeing playing TF2, They use a UI mod, this means that the default UI is horrible.

I think it be nice if they just sold crates the same price as keys, only unlocked. Just like 2016 Smissmas Crates.

Almost half of all my weapons are drops before the drop system was filled with crates. I'd rather have doubles to scrap over crates I'm not gonna pay to open.

And while I agree Demoknights were rather OPd, I think it be nice if they buff medieval traditional demoknights over demomen who think they're demoknights but still use a launcher.
For example, I would rebalance hit-range efficiency and make Chargin' Targe and Claidheamh Mòr more useful.

CS got popular in the west because whiteys couldn't play Sudden Attack

Counter Strike was like 5 years before that though... and like, I mean LithTech was alright, but an id Tech 2 derivative is better for a multiplayer I think.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41768927

But that would destroy the keys economy

The key economy would simply be replaced with crate economy. People will simply sell and trade unopened crates.
Of course, common crates will be sold for same price as keys.

This way TF2 can still play it's "whats in the box?" crap without forcing it on the community.

Will the game die if they add the option to change gender and have female version of every class (except pyro, he can be the only one with out the option)

Pyro's already a girl.

Bags!SprintMJXo 41769083

i mean it actually would destroy that economy by not giving players a "what if" of having a box which makes them want to buy a key to open it

Like demonio is right in that the economy would be, if not destroyed, heavily reduced but his implication that the "key economy" existing is a good thing instead of an exploitative psychological trick, is completely wrong.

I never said it was a good thing, I just was thinking on the bunch of scalpers, I mean merchant people with their inventories full of keys.

or it maybe a it.

Sure, everything else is racist, that might as well be too.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41769298

So, if it was for you, would you add the option to change gender, and turn pyro into a man with boobs and hips, and the normal pyro is the female one?

I don't think it would matter at all, not to sound sexist on it, just TF2 doesn't care if there ar eno girl mercs because it's mostly on class and their function than the characters and gender. If you wanna play as the female mercs you're perhaps better off downloading a mod for it or something.

The fact the mercs are all guys are just s choice implimented into lore. Their diversity in body shapes is also functionable for gameplay to make the classes more easily recognisable while in previous Team Fortress games that all used standard body models with various distinctions.

If I was to have my inventory full of crates, it should be because I want them there to open. But since I have to shell out some money to open them which I don't want to do, then I just delete the crates everytime I recieve them.
Thats not to say I don't buy from the market or shop, just if there is a weapon or cosmetic I want, I directly buy it than place faith in crates and end up with stock weapons that can count.

Crates in the drop system also causes a hinderence for new players who are better off finding new yet usual weapons in drops before purchasing them for themselves. The game giving out free yet common weapons encourages new players to play more and experiment, but giving crates instead implies that they need keys to improove and that isn't encouraging.

There should be some drop options for the drop system to stop wasting my time with crates and give me something I could at least scrap.

The very least have non-tradable keys as a rare drop just to encourage players to keep their crates or to go out and buy them. Yes it would hinder the key economy a bit but I am pissed off with all these crates.

Sure, why not?

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41769454

TF2 should go to retirment and people should play gangfort

Crimson Risk !RISkQqf4EM 41769459

mainstream. made by valve itself. cheap to buy, highly advertised.

DemonioBlanco, The Hellcaver 41769461

is it really mainstream?
If I mention the name CSGo to all my friends, maybe 2 or 3 will know about it....
and no, I dont have just 4 friends.

Crimson Risk !RISkQqf4EM 41769463

it's the top played game on steam with around 800k players per day. it's about as mainstream as FPS gets besides maybe call of duty.

unless you don't consider PC gaming to be mainstream
