Arseniy «ceh9» Trynozhenko

I think, everybody realizes that professional Counter-Strike is, first of all, a team-based strategy game. And what kind of strategy and tactics is possible without tricks and deceptions (of course, within the rules)? In this article I will tell you about what you need to pay attention to, studying the opponent's game, and then what to do with this information.

Antitactics and tricks

 

 Antitactics

 

On the Internet you can find VODs of almost every team that participated in championships at least once. When you watch the way the opponent plays, you can learn a lot of interesting things, but the main thing here is not getting fixated and not overdoing it in the analysis.

 

What should you pay attention to and what to do with all this? Before you visually analyze the antitactics creating process, it is important to note that the game you are watching should be played against approximately equal opponent. At the same time the enemy has to care about the result, and it is desirable that the team you are following would win the match, as the rounds that work well the enemy will repeat over and over again.

 

 I’m going to write in the format "1. What to look at 2. How to react."

 

  1. Pay attention to the key rounds. Just then the opponent will show what he’s capable of. And most of all his game will depend on those very strategies/ideas. The key rounds – it’s the first buyround of both teams after pistol round, that is important from the perspective of rounds’ economy and, of course, following the outcome of the pistol round.
  2. Find a hallmark of each of these rounds, the sign by which you can understand at the very beginning that the opponent will realize this particular strategy. And discuss your next steps in advance in case things go differently. It is important not to outsmart yourself, because there is a chance that you’re wrong and the opponent is doing something completely different.

 

  1. You wanna notice where the opponent’s grenades explode while implementing predefined tactics and by what trajectories the enemies come to the bombplant.
  2. Find the ideal position for playing against this style of opponent and implement it.

 

  1. Find out whether the opponent likes to do adventurous buys in the second round after lost pistol round. How often he buys having just a few AKs.
  2. If your opponent performs such an aggressive style, stay alert and avoid playing with a gun in the second round.

 

Tricks

 

Rounds, which have the aim to deceive the opponent, to mislead him. Here are a few principles you should follow when trying to implement a trick:

 

  • Fake-rounds best succeed in imitation of the tactics which has already worked in this game. Make the opponent say "They are throwing the valley again!" and proceed to the opposite bombspot.
  • In order to distract attention, there has to be a player or two proceeding to the opposite bombspot. In today’s CS nobody believes in simple grenades’ throwing out without bombsite entering any more.
  • The effect of the large number of people present on the opposite side of the map can be created using grenades. Just throw three, four, five HE- or SG-grenades and while they are flying you wanna already start moving. Those one or two players, which you leave, have to create noise on the largest possible number of bombspots.
  • The guys, distracting attention from entering another base, shouldn’t die. I mean, you don’t have to necessarily bring the situation to “kill / didn’t kill.” The most uncomfortable game for the enemy will demonstrate a fighter who has made a lot of noise and backed off to his teammates. That kind of fighter they will still be afraid of for some time.
