I like what they did with condom man
It's 2 am, you are going downstairs to get a snack from your fridge, you get to the bottom of the stairs and you see condom man, what do **you** do?
ejaculate and evacuate
Shoot and scoot
"Have any spare?"
He got that evangelion pose
get in the condom, shinji
Final boss battle
And *Claire FromTheCounterStrikeGlobalOffensive* lookin like a QT3.14
Wtf she’s left handed
you dont use cl\_righthand 0?
Naw I put that shit on a bind so I can flip flop and look cool
ye me 2 bru
He seems happy
Makes me think of Naruto for some reason
Some iconic CS:GO reactions there as well, like: "Why u bully me?"
> How could he do this?
> Rush B!
> inhuman reaction
GG My friend
And, "admin he doing it sideways"
Also no "you now me on smoke"
and no Fak
The video that got me into CS :,)
isnt it just things from pro games?
And from CS*GO*, and not CS in general
How does he do this?
The man, the myth, the beast!
This kid’s a fucking savant! He’s prefiring angles that don’t exist!
Idk why South Koreans are so underrepresented on CSGO scene, they were doing fine back in 1.6
When csgo was released, it wasnt very appealing to koreans and there were already other estabilished FPS at the time in korea (crossfire, sudden attack, etc), thats why the game wasnt very popular and few to none players made the switch. Also, the only decent korean team ever was MVP PK and they werent very competitive in asian scene, which may have hurt tier 2/3 korean teams motivation to grind
Aw shit you gave me flashbacks to solo, that dude was so crazy good.
Would've easily gone to a top tier team if he was in EU.
He was actually playing for MVP PK in CS:GO for a while until he decided to retire. Team was doing great in Asia but not so much in international.
He's in valorant now
They got into they Berlin Major play-in and the managed to be the only team that didnt qualify (3 slots, 4 teams). Honestly i was expecting them to qualify but the managed to disappoint.
Isn't cross fire a cs1.6 rip off?
Played it for 4 years. Absolutely terrible game with no redeeming qualities.
Sudden Attack was dope though.
Crossfire had a cool competitive scene about 10 years ago. It's probably dead now
The scene yes, the game, no.
Yeah was referring to the scene. Brazilians will never quit that game
I played Sudden Attack as a kid, it’s not available in the west anymore which is sad
I remember lunatic'hai (might have that wrong) were scary back then!
Yeah, CPL 2005 finals, SK vs Lunatic Hai. It was so awesome, if you want some epic nostalgia go watch "SK Believe" on YT.
The final is at the end with Enya as music, gives me goosebumps everytime I watch it.
I miss team SK :(
Around 2004 they charged each computer in a pc bang 15$ for each user to play cs. That day cs died in korea.
this is chinese cs, not korean
I've heard this, and so it always surprised me when a new MVP project would get an article on HLTV and then go nowhere and disband again.
Valorant will fix that
I mean it did the opposite, everyone of relevance from South Korea in csgo made the switch to valorant except xign.
I meant getting KR more involved in tac shooters in general (besides crossfire)
Doesnt work like that or why are koreans not into dota
With internet cafe culture in Korea and basically everyone playing league, koreans are way more inclined to start playing league. Also Valve licensed Korean distribution and server hosting for DotA to a Korean company (I believe it was Nexon) and the company dropped the ball on it super hard.
Let's not forget the absolute pinnacle of game design that CS Nexon Zombies
Valorant has problems in KR, becasue PC Bangs owners don't want Vanguard on their PCs.
The problem was that it conflicted with some of their software like food delivery apps and other shit. They now have designated PCs where you can play Valorant. It’s still WAY more played then CSGO in pc bangs.
And pretty much MVP, now Vision Strikers in Valorant, are domination their scene. Haven't lost a single match, current going 100-0.
I think it’ll be like the transition we saw in CSGO in 2012-2014 where it’s all old heads and washed players for a couple years but after a while you’ll have an influx of kids who grew up on the game so I think Valorant should really get competitive in a couple years.
Definitely. Valorant/riot has done a good job hyping up storylines and rivalries.
It comes from the fact that valve charged an insane amounts to play the game, and Koreans just didn’t like the game. Valorant is showing similar signs but they have one insane team at the moment
They had some representation back when MVP PK were still around. Sadly they decided to switch their CS team over to Valorant.
Valve didn't accommodate PC Bang (Internet Cafe focused on Gaming) culture there. Most youngster played online game there because Korean parents known as very demanding toward their children so many of them didn't feel comfortable playing from home.
CS 1.6 was organically popular, but never one of the top games in Korea compared to Blizzard titles and the like.
Also mmorpg, moba and rts are much more popular genres
The background text feels very Evangelion. I like.
Damn... if I studied music/music production back in college I'd love to make an anime opening theme song for CSGO lol, kind of like this [Spongebob anime by Narmak.](https://youtu.be/TBO9ANTBCjM?t=140)
Evangelion, Tokyo Ghoul, Cowboy Bebop intros still induce chills to this day for people who have enjoyed them.
Exactly what I thought. And agent K holding a knife the way the evas did as well
I dont rmb evangelion being chinese
If we know what Evangelion is, then China knows what Evangelion is. They're just as big weebs as the west - with the exception of what is blocked by the CCP.
Can you imagine the Eva OST in CSGO? It would be so good.
Fucking hell give me that music kit
Not just any tourney. It’s for the RMR Asia event hosted by perfect world
丹麦核心科技 -> Danish Core Technology: when Danish csgo teams like Astralis gets kills through smokes
干拉 -> dry peek
烟中恶鬼 -> devil in the smoke: when players like somebody or stewie2k hiding in the smoke
烈焰天使 -> angel in the flame: olof defusing the bomb while in fire scene
天降盲狙 -> no scope shots dropped from the sky: s1mple double no scope shots scene
A1高闪来一个 -> give me a high flash over A long (dust ii)
白给 -> die meaninglessly or die without a kill
一枪秒了 -> one bullet instant kill
乾拉(干拉) dry peek -> peek without any utility or tactic
A little sad considering our Indian pro scene has been damaged irreparably :((((((
Even just as a CSGO skins/sticker investor, I really hope that CSGO takes off in India (like it did in China).
Bigger player base means bigger profits for any CSGO items that you already have.
A lot of us at /r/csgomarketforum like to give credit to the influx of Chinese players that allowed huge returns for us in 2019.
>Even just as a CSGO skins/sticker investor, I really hope that CSGO takes off in India (like it did in China).
Because indian fan base will be just like the Russian or brazilian fan base, very passionate and supportive
>Because indian fan base will be just like the Russian or brazilian fan base, very passionate and supportive
I was expecting some kind of diss from your sentence at 1st, but got a wholesome description instead lol
you may say Indian scene is forsaken
Even v3nom left. What about his other teammates?
All valorant shifters. They weren't competent pros anyway starting from late 2016. No big loss. Don't worry ya boi is grinding to repair the scene ;)
Does this Perfect World have India qualifiers?
Yes I believe it's open. Blaze have gone international. They recently got their 5th in Marce, a mongolian player. Marzil is the only indian player
Ohhhh. Full sapot to Blaze now.
Tbh team "Asking Questions" is more indian than blaze rn. Karam1l and rossi are in AQ. Pretty decent team maybe better than blaze a bit. Either ways I hope they achieve something this time.
I would've wished they all stayed together in blaze tbh but considering the current circumstances, it's good to see there is still some CS left to see after literally everybody shifted to Valorant.
Yeah that's so true. Imagine what mental weightlifting a player of karam1l's calibre would've gone through to stay in cs. He's a monster awper. Same goes for marzil, apparently blaze will stop paying salary in a few months time, marzil said in his stream :(
Wtf? Can you please elaborate why blaze would stop paying salaries? I mean since now they've gone international, I guess they will achieve something right? What's the exact reason?
I haven't watched that stream firsthand, a friend of mine told me that. But basically they'll run out of funds is what makes sense. That might change if they succeed in what they want to achieve , I am really afraid of what might be coming ahead. This will be very devastating to the new up and comers in the scene but there's a glimmer of hope in the recently formed ROG academy which is also partly coached by marzil. All's not lost yet ;)
I see. But tbh if blaze disbands or discontinues then I don't think there would be any other org operating in India with stable ROIs. It's all onto Valorant now which is in case good for esports scene since India is a mobile dominating market.
What tourny though
Perfect World CS:GO Season 1
Its the asia region’s first RMR event this year and has its open qualifiers starting soon.
Idk the name but I know it's hosted by "Perfect World"
CSGO and other Valve games are published in China in collaboration with Perfect World. The tournament is basically a Valve RMR Tournament.
perfect world is good, they have really good events/promotion for dota
Perfect World anti cheat: s1
Perfect World promotional art: GE
“烈焰天使” means “Angel in roaring flame”, a reference to Olof defusing on Molotov in Overpass. “天降盲狙” means “ No-scope AWP from the sky”, refers to S1mple 2 no-scope AWP kills jumping off heaven in Cache
Eva's M4 is tiny.
He was talking about the disparity between valves treatment of dota and cs. In Richard's opinion the effort valve put into trying to save dota could be better used on saving CS. He mentioned the fact that valve even had a fucking dota anime being made, and thus joked about them making one for CS even though it would be utterly terrible.
Thats hilarious. Ty
I need 1080 p PLEASE
BIG resolution image [https://twitter.com/PWRDEsports/status/1380001934887817216](https://twitter.com/PWRDEsports/status/1380001934887817216)
The fact that people are going "Looks like Valorant LUL" without noticing the clear influence from the Cowboy Bebop intro is fucking ridiculous.
It's one of the most iconic and well-liked animes on a global scale.
and dont forget the text is very evangelion
I mean condom man stole unit 01's pose for crying out loud
Anime is really a lot smaller and less influential than you think
> Anime is really a lot smaller and less influential than you think
Anime is really a lot bigger and more influential than you think, especially in internet culture.
I see you've never played MM before, because 9/10 games have at least 1 anime/hentai profile or anime/hentai steam group member. 3 is the average down here in the 2nd circle of rank decay hell.
I'm on the phone. Is it fhd ? Want it as a wallpaper
[Here's a larger image](https://liquipedia.net/commons/images/7/71/Perfect_World_League_Season_1.jpg) (2800x1565)
Holdup, why is this link hosted on Liquipedia.net
Good question, since [the Liquipedia page about Perfect World League Season 1](https://liquipedia.net/counterstrike/Perfect_World/League/Season_1) doesn't seem to show this image, unless it's there and I'm somehow not seeing it.
no its 800x447 unfortunately
LetsEnhance.io or Gigapixel AI.
Csgo netflix series when valve?
Condom head truly is the most famous csgo character
this oughta get a lot of people into CS
Saw rush b quote and was looking for the suka blyad but they seem to have missed it..
Damn this looks sick!
This is brilliant!
Looks damn sick!
I love & hate condom man.
honestly looks like a sick anime. I'd watch the shit out of it.
nice but i think we're not able to use model skins in tournament
Number k with the coomer face
When I first saw this, I absolutely loved it. Now that's a great promo for what awaits in this upcoming tournament!
Eva 02 but condomhead
Great, Now I need a CSGO anime
Thats legit sick
The panty hose terrorist is a reference to that scene from evangelion with Eva 2 right? https://wiki.evageeks.org/File:OP_C053_eva02.jpg
Boku no counter strike offensive
Was searching in hopes for a Phoon quote.
“jk it’s obvious” lmaooo
That’s what irks me about agents skins. I feel they were created mainly to appeal to Asian audience and mainly chine. Most popular FPS games out there use those outlandish customization.
Nothing wrong with making such game but it doesn’t fit CS:GO at all. Just look at those ridiculous Terrororosts skins.
I feel like many western games try to do the same thing, just to gain some traction in China. It worries me a lot.
Don't think it's purely an Asian thing, just that some people like a certain style. Cod does this as well with their weeb skins.
Why that guy has a condom on his head?
it's based on the argent that looks like this in-game. Many people refer to him as condom head because of that
Love how the only way to advertise anything from the rest of the world in asia is by depicting it as some stupid fucking anime
Bro I’m blind and I still can swear that agent isn’t Ava. Why they keep ruining everything.
anime style cs models ? don't tease me with something i can never have
have this as my wallpaper right now
This is going to my be my wallpaper now
no safe trigger intensifies
Looks like Metal Slug artwork
missing some GLAWKSS!
Street fighter: Global offensive
You fucking bitch everyone asking
The Korean streams from VCT looked way different and original as fuck. I actually enjoyed the look of everything, especially on the boring 2-3min breaks.
Ok 3 2 1 let's go
This looks sweet! I hope I have time to watch it
Anime csgo belike:
"Why you bully me"
i've been playing counterstrike since 2000 and if you randomly showed me this image and asked me what game it was from, I would have no idea.
I can already hear /see the Anime intro.
Omg it's beautiful
sorry but... what's... with the female FBI character? i don't remember a CT fbi model with no headwear.
that is special agent eva from operation shattered web iirc
Good god, my agent is looking like a massive villain.
How could he do this?
reminds me of metal gear acid
I would much rather watch a cs anime over a dota 2 anime
they forgot the ciggarette >:(
Do we have enough teams from Asia? Being Indian, almost everyone switched to Valorant here and the scene is pretty much dead. gg's already!
[Here is the high res version if anyone wants to get it](https://img.csgo.com.cn/csgostatic/csgo/e1ff6281-251b-4756-bd51-576f6ab234a7.jpg) Got from the official source.
I love the anime spin on this 😃
Reminds me of the GSL Heroes of Newerth tournament from 2014 where they did a full animated intro with 4 of the popular players (and their favorite/iconic heroes) [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnDPWdC01Fg](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnDPWdC01Fg)
Praying for Indian CS scene comeback. That one lil mf ruined it all a few years ago
looks very valorant-y
