Why? There's less rage quitting, and more people in matches until the final round.

Even if they are all just hanging out at the spawn point, examining their boots, while their puppet-masters are AFK, or furiously scanning through the Community Market pages like Gordon Gekko on amphetamines?

lol I'm not even certain I've seen any puppets at all! Maybe the occasional person who isn't moving, but nothing on the scale the OP is referring to!

Nor me. In the few games I've played since the update, everyone was running around as normal, and enthusiastically riddling me with bullets, as I've come to expect :)

You may have not heard it, but they were probably laughing while doing that.

The game does have a learning curve. Even I suffer at times but once you get used to the maps and weapons, it's so much fun ^^ The random weapon/crate drops are just a bonus that makes it worth playing even more.

+1. I played a few hours since the update and never once came across an idler.

  1. 1/3? Hell no, most of the players play on the regular servers among others.

  2. If you idle, you can't get any items, just like in the newest version on TF2.

  3. Stop hating, they're entirely aesthetic skins. Even though the prices are bullshit (My friend sold a knife for $186)

I haven't seen many idlers at all (maybe 2 or 3 potential ones over about 10 hours of gameplay). I think Valve have learned since their anti-idle TF2 update.

I think this update is amazing. It adds some diversity to the game and keeps most people in matches until the last round! :D Aesthetic changes are exactly what I want to find in drops, nothing else.

If you are too poor to spend 3.74€ during the sale, you are probably too poor to own a decent PC that would run it anyway.

Or maybe you're just smart enough to not waste money on a rehashed game. Free 2 Play? Sure, i'll give it a go. But based on screenshots, player feedback, videos, and the general appearance of the game, it looks like a shitty rehash of a previous CS game; kind of like the shitty reskin that was L4D2.

I have been on holiday for a week. I came back to have a quick frag and what do I find... CSGO with a market?! I was confused, then I started a match and saw people running about with really horrid looking skins on their guns. I'll basically just sell any drops I get (not that I got any in a few hours play last night anyway). Luckily my matches didn't have any idlers at all.

The market seems like a really bad idea to me...since when did CS:GO become TF2?

The differences between the CS:GO market and the TF2 market are vast.

Most people are idling for the operation payback thing. I don't really care about those people idling, they'll get kicked anyways.

They're doing it wrong, then. There's idle servers out there now that let people just stay around for short matches on custom maps. Idling on regular servers is more likely to get you kicked because the rounds and matches take a longer time, meaning they are more likely to get kicked for idling.

They are idling for the gold coin of Operation Payback, it was the same before the update. The good point of the update is that you'll get money each week if they don't reduce the drop amount.

How do you get items? I play on community server, on normal server and nothing. And people who idle get items? How does it work?

¨The fun part is, that every map I've been on we have kicked those who is AFK/idling. So I don't see this as a big problem. Please stop whining.

It's a proven fact that half of the game buyers doesn't play the game after they buy (yes, there is a study about it) and it's normal that people lose interest after a few months playing. They found a way to keep more players active and to keep their servers with a constant cash flow to justify them to keep it alive.

TL;DR: stop complaining since they are trying to keep the game alive.

Atleast I've gotten around 10$ on selling crates.

and I used it all to buy keys.

But I play CS:Go for fun and not for item collecting.

The new M4-S is OP as fuck. Who cares that you only have 20 bullets if every shot is a headshot? It's way too accurate imo. The new skins aren't as distracting and over the top as I thought they are going to be but I really hope they don't add guns you have to pay for. All in all it ain't all that bad but I still prefer the pre update cs go.
