@Andrew_Smith are there any ping restrictions? 3 of my clan mates live in the UK
That is a good question. We would like to keep it local of course to make it an enjoyable experience for everyone. I am going to say, yes - only for local players.

Guys, I am feeling really stupid haha - but I cant find the tournament page to register teams?
Firstly, you will need to join a team or create one with 5 players before registering.

You can register by clicking on the 'Tournaments' tab on the top of the website.

no, just turning recoil and spread off via the console
What do you mean no? Turning off recoil and spread makes the game Unreal Instagib. Anyone signing up for this tournament please note that this is not CS, and you are in for a mighty surprise when you get AK Sprayed to death around every corner. Think long and hard before signing up for this, if you want to know what I mean, watch this video, and you will understand under what server config you are playing:


The entire point of cs is its unique spray and recoil patterns. Without them we might as well be Quake Championsing.

Edit: If you like instagib CS:GO this tournament is for you and please sign up!

Yes, we are well aware of it. We voted for these settings and this is what is going to make it different compared to your normal CS:GO competitive match. This is will play tricks on your mind because you will be used to controlling recoil and that is where the challenge and fun lies.

Sorry, missed the vote. We are trying to gear my place of work with some major changes, so have been here very little.

Unfortunately you can't work with subconscious. I have been playing cs now for 22 years. There is no way I can recalculate for everything I have completely ingrained. That is like trying to ask a normal mouse user to play invert. Every fight you go into you will go the wrong way the moment instinct kicks it. I play invert though :)

All good, but thank you for the feedback. I am sure I will host a real CS:GO tournament again without any modifications or commands.

That's my plan so that us mere mortals can stand a chance against the CS:GO master veterans.

That's the point lol

And no, it's not modified. Custom games have been a part of CS since inception. This isn't a competitive setting, it's for fun hence the CoD prefix ;)

I'm LEM and found it so much harder to play, but lots more fun because its something different with new people and I enjoyed faffing around with a deagle

@WAZAR

Out of curiousity, did you play Source? These settings are very similar to how Source played. Which is why so many people complained about it. The Deagle was known as the second Awp due to the ridiculous accuracy. And the amount of AK aces I got was insane. You run into all 5 of them on short on Dust 2, they all die in a brutal spray of way too accurate bullets.

How will you guys combat other exploits that can be used in the console if sv_cheats is enabled?
Infinite ammo - "sv_infinite_ammo 1"
giving yourself any weapon without buying/using money - give weapon_[weapon code name]
Literal godmode - god
flying and clipping through walls - noclip
literal wallhacks - r_drawothermodels 2

Just naming a few, here is a more detailed list of game breaking console commands:
Basically cheats, but without cheating.

I wanted to ask this and then thought let me not give people ideas, lol.
I mean, I was gonna just 100% use all of this and wall and take the prize pot, but I felt that would be dishonest to the Carb community :p

That is really a good question and I cannot call myself a CS:GO guru.

But the only way I see how we can eliminate this is to go with @stroes private server and then the server admin can type in the commands. Players won't be able to do so.

Correct me if I am wrong but if you create a private lobby, isn't the host the only one who can use the console for commands?

Private lobby and private server is not exactly the same thing. On a private server, if sv_cheats 1 is on anyone can take advantage of that, but you can't enable the sv_cheats from client side if it is off on the server.

On the other hand I would like to point out if you roll with private lobbies, who ever is hosting that lobby is going to have a monstrous ping/game feel advantage.
