have a question regarding settings: it appears to me that CSGO overrides video settings from external panels or applications -- I was happy to notice way back, before f.lux introduced the "disable for full screen applications" that CSGO was disabling the orange filter. I'm happy in the sense that goes a long way to level the playing field... but I've noticed from some higlight reels that progamers streaming have very washed out captures, clearly lowering contrast and increasing alpha to spot whoever hides in a dark corner.
How do they do that?
I was looking into doing a light version of that yesterday to make the game playable... as I don't have curtains in the living room, in a sunny day, I can't spot a CT hiding in the dark corner of -for eg- Cobble, when exiting Underpass, despite screen being max brightness and in-game brightness being maxed out; I would have needed something like an external screen protection/blinker/panel and maybe still a baseball hat for myself.
I'm talking about a laptop btw.

Wow Space Soldiers, opening Cloud 9 wide!

Watching these underdogs, Vega as well yday, is so good... is a bit like watching NCAA basketball, I see these teams doing things that the big names don't ever pull. Quite spectacular 8)

OT: does anybody know what these red dongles are for?

also something that ties back into the display/screen question from earlier... are they allowed to use scripts etc or they have to play vanilla CSGO?

My guess is either it鈥檚 part of the monitor or the TO is stuffing a USB port with an obvious dongle.聽

They have to play vanilla CS iirc.

Fnugz told me once that this is for聽headphones. You basicly put them there.

lol, very uninteresting :D thought were USBs where they kept their configs or something.

SK vs Faze are on now, just a taste of final/semifinal!
But everyone is talking about G2, like SK was happy to avoid G2 for now... wasn't expecting the French to be such strong contenders to the title.
Last night Astralis vs North was tight!

Anyway I came to post cos they were saying "Cache is falling into popularity [because on B connector a smoke blocks completely the view and you might get 5 players rushing through]"

What a game to finish off the first part of the Boston Major, an overtime game seems the right way to go for the very last match as聽Space Soldiers dig deep and advance to the next stage.

I really like the style of play they have, they seem more loose and creative than the big teams... but there might be also the reason why the established contenders are in that position.

I really wish Space Soldiers or Vega Squadron were in the playoffs instead of QBF, but it was not meant to be. Overall these playoffs should be alright though.

Thought that match with Mouse counts as playoff... as one game played with direct elimination?

I want SK to go through but Fnatic is putting up a fight! Overtime already on the first map!

Surprised by C9 getting through, I'm happy for them but was expecting G2 really, everybody was naming them as top 3 for the title basically.

What a semi-final between SK and Cloud 9!
C9 have been very solid from the start, I was really impressed by their earlier matches but didn't think at all they would get to the finals! (Neither the experts. even n0thing was favoring another team in a previous match -- despite that I still put them down as possible winners at the beginning of the tournament, so supporting them tonight, they would give me a nice return on my cheap 拢2 bet :D). I'm not sure what it is, but seems like despite the talent of n0thing and Shroud, they are much better off now. They seem very confident and assertive, imposing their game instead of reacting.

Here are the recorded games

Completely unrelated, wanted to ask something to those that know the game well @FMPONE @Vaya @General Vivi...? See the screenshot below -- I was playing the other night and there was a player showing up as "unconnected" and when he was killing someone, it appeared as a suicide (see my highlights). I was wondering if that is some sort of cheat or some actual connection issue... but it looked like there was mad reaction time, I would barely have the time to register the guy was there, and I was instantly dead. Not that he was unkillable though.

The other weird thing is that you couldn't report him in any way because you couldn't click his profile, it was greyed out in the leaderboard.
