Heyo, love the new update and it made game a whole lot better, matchmaking was desperately needed and I hope that it will bring in new players in to game population. However I believe that there is a problem that is stopping population from growing because of it's current population. The problem is the extreme skill difference between current player base and future player base. Right now I just played vs a dude on silver that was practically spawn killing me and the my matchmaking calibration consisted of this : Won, was an easy game Lost, should not of gotten nervous and be more relaxed and I would of won be he did play well Rape Rape Rape Rape Rape Rape Rape Victory! I understand that vets here are seasoned and have very well earned their right to play at their skill level because it was earned though large amount of training and I by no means to say that you just let new guys win but instead drop down to their level, skip out on mega and red armor, and win game with the score of 15-13 instead of 50-0. Because it really is demoralizing and kills really intensive to play the game, finish the match or even carry on playing this game overall. Now I'm a dude that played quake since I was a kid and I know when I am being toyed with but I do appreciate the fact they are at least giving me a chance to win the game(even tho we both know that I will loose) and actually makes match waaay more fun. Shout out to ''dansen'' for that match. What I am saying that if you vets see a new guy just starting out or dude playing below your skill level, don't just stomp him with 50-0, instead let him explore and get the powerups and win the game with a score of 18-15, it will keep new players around and not make them go ''Fuck this game'' right after their first match. PS: Pardon the format and errors, late as hell and tired.
dvs posted a topic in TournamentsHi my name is dvs and I'm new to reflex. I met some really cool people in this community and I thought I'd make a group for new players like me, who want to still participate in tournaments and improve with other new players. Since the arenafps genre is full of people who have been playing this game forever, I'm looking to make this group to have new players feel more welcome and to not be frustrated with the game when they play against players who are above their level. The group is public and I'd love for you and your friends to join! http://steamcommunity.com/groups/eunewbz Once we have enough players, we'll open registration for the first tournament, happening this Saturday evening. The ladder wll be hosted on challonge.com and we are also looking for someone to stream some duels, so leave a response here if you'd be interested in that Hope this thread gets a good response, thanks for reading! Edit: the rules and stuff: The map pool is gonna be(all in competitive ruleset): - 421 - Simplicity - xy2 - The catalyst All matches are going to be BO1 except for the finals which will be BO3, decide which player gets to ban a map first by using the ~roll # command in the discord, the user who rolls the higher number out of 100 gets to ban the first map, the map that remains gets played. After finishing the match, submit the scores to challonge; the winner gets 1 point and the loser gets 0. You can use any server as long as both players agree to it, no spectators except for casters/streamers. Edit: Prize pool added: Thanks to Chandos, we now have a prize pool of 5 CS:GO keys for the first place. We are looking at possibly having a prize pool for 2nd place as well, updates soon.
