      @Banned_and_Redacted not a new game. It literally replaces CSGO and is handled as an update on Steam. It uses the same Steam items as CSGO (skins, creates etc). It's similar to when DOTA 2 was ported to Source 2.

      @Dripik sequel wouldn't be excitinf at all why fix when csgo is best and perfect cs. It can only get better from here on source 2. And smokes are amazing those who cries are just too slow. Nades only make it dissapear for like a sec and bullets only disperse smoke on sides not in middle people i love howany people who complain about such things when they stopped playing csgo in first place. Double standards lmao.

      ​@Arminas Gamer yeah pretty much what I've been saying. It's the reborn version of csgo not a New csgame. It's not as exciting as a new sequel but it's needed for the game, source 2 does look incredible but yeah it's not a sequel but a massive game update.

    • undeadbobop
      undeadbobop 4 hours ago +1

      @Sunsetbear If you were spamming them then you were using them wrong to begin with. What you see as spam could also be a well thought out strategy or tactic as smokes were used both offensively and defensively. Now this removes that because all someone has to do is replace the smoke effect with one more transparent and justify it with they could see through the smoke and it be valid. Also it removes all reasons why you would throw a smoke at the enemy team to blind them, and it removes the reason why you would throw it down for cover and subgiated it to a single minor inconvenience distraction to try to throw the enemy team off. Which is why you would see people throwing them at doors on dust2 and then not using it because they went to flank or attack from a different point or in cs1.6's case to make the enemy team waste ammo and thus money by shooting at nothing, but that game you could shoot through some walls and doing so often either was a signal that you were really good at knowing the spot or you were hacking. This is the only use for it with this really other than to minor inconvenience annoy someone using a awp or scout.

    It's gonna be interesting if silenced weapons have the advantage to NOT clear the smoke. Currently they dont have tracers, so spamming smokes is kinda safe. Would be sick if this mechanic also works with the new smokes.

      @Six Chiller you have a good point. But FPS games already has a lot of things that are not following the real world physics, so, why not make this thing with silencers really ?

    • Six Chiller
      Six Chiller 8 hours ago +16

      Well if they stay with the physics, that would not matter - as it is the bullet itself that clears the smoke and the bullet is there, whether its a silenced weapon or not. But lets see, could be though :D

    In a way cool it will be more dynamic and interactive, not a static visual block you play around, though I wonder also how many random crap may happen from different enemies interacting with same smoke with you near it or even within it. This could be rather chaotic, so approach will have to have more caution if say smoke reveals you to multiple enemies different angles.

Terro smoke you out to push mid, and you just start spraying and get the few miliseconds of advantage reaction time to see where they are. Before this you were basically shooting randomly through smoke or at least had to know exact positions on the map to smokebang. Shooting through the smoke revealed your position with sound and tracers. Now you just get extra safety to get a kill.

    wow this is funny, I spoke about this a couple of years ago with a friend, why smoke in games are not more dynamic, no games would be alike, because even if you throw the smoke at the same spot and shot at the same placement, the dynamic of the 3D object will eventually bounce differently. we spoke also about having a randomized behaviour when shooting (even if its just a small one) so no spray should show the same pattern, this way, players need to think before they try to maul down 3 players infront of them.

    The smoke cancelled by shooting or nades is a good addition. Definitely will add spice and prevents smoke spams.

      ​@Szymon X you are speaking too soon. We are used to very small incremental changes as CS players so this reaction is understandable but we need to see how it plays out in actually for both casual and competitive players.

      @Buttars thats the point, new smoke mechanic and I can already think of 30 new position for T to pop flash and push in site in surprise on mirage and all you think of is about the window smoke lol. No wonder mirage is the only map u have a recall from a specific smoke mechanjc

    this is amazing and i can't wait to play! i hope they can make a real live leaderboard system too based around win loss ratio similar to the dota 2 leaderboards and change it to a points system for matchmaking- where top players in the region can get noticed and climb to the highest mmr. might make for longer queues if you are in the top 1% (maybe an extra 5 minutes tops depending if people queue instantly after a match) but you'll be playing against the best players in the world in your region. the report system will likely get a massive update too and a lot more cheaters will get banned in the new cs go. its A LOT harder to cheat in dota and win a game compared to cs go but with the proper report system these cheating accounts will never climb the ranks or make it out of silver/gold without getting banned or they'll get mass reported which forces the player to play 5 "low priority" unranked games.

      @Fake Player you people always think complaining about new things is just cause people like to cry. If you took 3 seconds to think how manipulating smokes is bad, you would realise what im talking about. The only good thing here is smokes adapting to the map.
      I would be all for it if this was a separate game, but currently it seems like its just going towards being a GO update

    • Kacpa2

      @Tano Dz Rather all the ways to completely nulllify what smoke grenades did for CSGO. You both cant spam it safely with silence weapons anymore and it completely eradicartes any chance for ninja defuse if all the have to do is shoot around you to see you clearly. Ninja defuses were already hard and relied on fact they couldnt see you.
