Hi all,

I will have the honour to host the second tournament with arguable the most skilled based game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Now, I have the following in mind, inspired by the War Owl. (there are choices, please vote on the poll)

COD CS:GO
Yeah, like stated, Call of Duty Counter-Strike. All of the weapons will not have any recoil.
Simply get your crosshair on the enemy's head and boom, headshot!
I believe this will be a challenge for everyone, even more so for the veterans, because you would be used to the recoil patterns of the guns but doing so you will not get that headshot as per usual. I think this would be a fun and interesting match to watch.




SuperSpeed CS:GO

Imagine you are playing the game in 200% speed? Sounds chaotic right, well it is and a challenge!




Third Person CS:GO
"Yes, Counter-Strike in third person, a horrible, horrible idea..." - TheWarOwl
"But is it?" - Andrew_Smith




Let me know if there is perhaps any other suggestions, I want this do be something different and fun for the community.

There one thing. Firstly I am not 100% sure how the server hosting will work.
@ian_stagib said he can host a server from his side as well, unfortunately, my laptop is a potato. But the thing is, all of the teams will need to implement the command prompt line of the set of rules for the server when the match starts. The CS:GO pro's, I'll need your input here if you can assist in how the joining will work.

Another thing, would you guys be fine with an R50 entry fee again? If not, please state otherwise, we can only change it if you guys wish. I will contribute an entry again from my side and @ian_stagib is graciously donating yet another R500 to the pool! The type will be elimination, so depending on how many teams enter we may see a quarter, semi and grand finale in the lot. The date of the final will take place on the 16th of May 2020, so there will be lots of time for teams to jump in and join the tournament.

If you don't want to comment on this thread, you are more than welcome to PM me as well.

Please stay safe and
GLHF

I'm very keen: my Steam is Steam Community :: slvrpwn

Pure coincidence but the first result if you google my username is a tweet from WarOwl about CS:GO rule standardisation from 2014 :p

Awesome!

Sorry, as discussed with @ian_stagib as well, we would like to stream a few games and if all works out, I would like to even (big emphasis on the following word) try to commentate on the final match for the tournament.

Woohoo - I'm in! No recoil is going to be such a mindfck. Not too keen on the third person thing - as the WarOwl said, it just breaks the game.

More than happy with the R50 - thank you to @ian_stagib for the R500!

I have a semi goodish team i play with. Not like the pros or anything. I don't want to enter if we are going to play globals or some ridiculous ranks. It does sound fun and I wanted to be part of the rocket league championship. Is non carb members welcome?

Ok so the official "I'm not very good" team (if you like):

@iamgigglz
@nster101
@WAZAR
@Valheru
Who's number 5?



Don't worry; anyone who's good is going to be a whole lot less good with no recoil...
Any chance if I can perhaps join, I am actually also keen.

Going to test run the game on my laptop.

Tested the game yesterday, seems that is it playable, needed to tweak a few settings.

Sometimes I get a few drops, but hey beggars can't be choosers.

Tested the no recoil with bots, wow very interesting.

how big are the mod files or is it just server settings?
This is the cool thing, it is only a few command lines.

The host only needs to enter it before the game starts and boom you are sorted.

No additional files required!
