I really need to get used to the shooting system, as aiming down the barrel isn't an option as it is in CoD. If anyone has any useful tips that would be great.

Just play official games. Competitive matchmaking. You get drawn with people with your skill level. Don't quit though.

Learn the recoil/spray characteristics for the guns (concentrate on AK/M4/AWP/pistol). Get familiar with flash/smoke/HE spots/strats.

Learn the maps. At the moment there is a big tournament going on (IEM Katowice) you can watch live or off demos ingame to get a feel of some of the main maps.

Dreamhack Winter Champions (Fnatic) out against LGB.

Fnatic won the 1st map, LGb won the 2nd map, and the 3rd map was epic.

Just to give you an idea, to finished 16-14 for LGB.

You lucky guy! I have been on since the first game on Thursday. i left my laptop on watching all the games whilst i was at Uni (I watched them when i was home) and I got 0 drops.

And yes, my STEAM account is linked, and I am logged in. Are you watching from twitch or GoTV?

Missed the first part as I was playing CS myself (the game was on my 2nd monitor though).

Its very interesting. You caught an amazing game, as it went to overtime. You were lucky

Still 0 drops. Does it automatically disable drops if you are in CS?

I don't watch it for the drops, but its nice

Everyone is backing NiP, including me, but don't totally rule out VP. They are playing at home, and they played quite well against LGB. Still want them to get battered though, as Taz looked like a complete **** yesterday.

The skill gap is pretty damn wide. NiP are just objectively better players.

However I always support the underdog so good luck to VP!

I supported the underdogs (Fnatic) at DreamHack, but Taz yesterday was being an absolute **** so I want him to lose

"Neo the prize at home will be better"

WTF?! These are gaming nerds, they don't know what sex it haha

Crowd has been great. No booing for NiP, they even called their names, even though the people are all for VP.

Such a good game. Shame I got up so late, was thinking about betting on the underdogs on CS:GO Lounge but left it too late.

VP playing well, but Mirage is their map. NiP just did a huge blunder. Walked past a VP player and they didn't see him lmao.

Did you buy the capsules or were they drops?

Been debating to buy a few capsules due to their cheap price (0.19) but then again, I don't like stickers. I don't have any skin which I like enough that I would apply a sticker on it.

Got my first drop I will open it after the tournament. hopefully I get a half decent weapon, not like last time (Dreamhack). I got a Souvenir G3SG1 | Jungle Dashed, battle scarred too, not even factor new -.-'

Had like 80p left over from selling skins on the marketplace and the capsules were only 15p so I bought a few and must have got luck!

I've not had any drops so far what so ever.

I have €10.10 from selling cases only. I don't sell my weapons, but then again, I don't buy anything either. I only bought both operations, and I will buy Operation Phoenix when it goes on sale.

I noticed about my drop when I went in game. I started the game and it said I have 1 drop. yay You did connect your steam and twitch yes?

Yeah everything is connected. Do I get the drops by playing in normal servers?

You will get a special package. You know when you get one. http://steamcommunity.com/market/lis...enir%20Package

You just need to watch the stream to get one of these packages.

For normal drops (i.e. not souvenir weapons) you will get them at random in games. You can get the lower rarity guns only. http://counterstrike.wikia.com/wiki/Skins

VP getting ht ekills and plants even though they are losing the rounds. NiP making the comeback but you get the feeling that if VP win a round, they will keep on going, as their economy is good, and NiP are constantly getting gunned down.

EDIT: VP won the round. lets see how NiP react.

EDIT 2: Game over. VP gonna win this, in 2 maps too!
