    I'm amazed how positive the reaction to this has been in the community. I expected moaning, wailing and the gnashing of teeth about every single thing they've changed. I hope it's as good as it looks.

      Sadly there is, this vid is really positive but shroud and Tarik stream was awful and unwatchable, the comments were awful too, really bad people to give the beta to, pointless complaining over extremely mundane things

      @twat2022 We live in the era of complainers and unfortunately they get all of the attention because most complainers... are... "influencers." The same thing is happening in Overwatch, there's some people who have a very loud voice because they have a large following and it seems like Blizzard is doing a lot of patching and balancing based on their moans. It used to be that developers, and gamers, waited for the dust to settle and see where balance actually was because people ADAPT and SOLVE changes. Thankfully I think Valve is more data driven.

      ​@twat2022 lol shroud's been salty about CS for years, he's just a washed up pro that claims he wanted to stream rather than pursue another pro team. The reality is streaming is all he's got. So he's complains about most things CS now hahaha

      When I first played CSGO 7 years ago my best friend sent me to the War Owl. I still have the "I'm the War Owl and I still have no closer" permanently part of my memory.
      I stopped playing CS for years and am only getting into it now. But I still remember this channel.

    Warowl, how could you feel like an outsider? You taught me the game all these years ago, anyone who was looking for tutorials I would refer to you, you always report on updates, and have given your thoughts on the game, and everyone playing cs that I know, knows you whether they watch you or not. If anything, I think you're a pillar in this community, even if you don't have the largest of a network of cs creators.

    5:58 - Smoke colouration looks more to do with if its in direct sunlight or shadow. Now that its volumetric, light interacts differently. See the top of the "orange smoke" is quite light as its close to the light source, and the backside of it is dark (ie: its shadowed). The smoke on the left near tunnels is completely shaded by the building.

      Remember that while bullets remove the smoke, both the shooter and the target's positions become exposed so in the end its a double edged sword. It helps increase visibility for your team but you become an even easier target to pick off so the faster and most accurate player will win the encounter.

    I absolutely love the new smokes, they're perfect!! My single biggest issue with csgo is and will always be one way smokes. Obviously the cheaters as well and whatnot, but as someone who only plays competitive in a very casual manner without real knowledge of nades, positions etc, the new smokes are incredible

  • Shloob

      @Qu man, I feel you. Most of my friends migrated to Valo and I hate that game, aka I am too old for this shit. I hop into mm every once in a while, but mostly to past time. HOWEVER, I found it's kinda awesome to just chill in Fl0m's co-host streams and be excited about the game that way. That is how I formed an attachment to community. Before that it was just friends, but now I jump into Reddit discussions, talk in creators chats and watch tournaments. And I rediscovered my passion for the game once again THOUGH community interaction and not just by playing the game. It's kinda awesome really. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it.

    I'm looking forward to the new maps and the features that are now available within the S2 engine. I'm happy the old maps are still there (during testing) but all new , well designed, maps will solidify CS2 as the GOAT. The old maps will reinforce differences between the two games where the game should be highlighted for what it is, not for whats different. It's a new game using a new engine.

    I love the smoke change. It removes or at least hinders a lot of the cheesy strategies surrounding smokes. Lets be honest here, smokes before were OP, and lead to some very uninteresting gameplay. No one talks about it because we are all used to smokes being the way they are.

  • Mateusz Rogalski
    Mateusz Rogalski 6 місяців тому

    For what you've said about networking it's almost on point the main difference is that whenever you're dealing with constant synchronization timings you also need to implement a movement prediction ( or client prediction ) which, as the name implies - predicts the movement of a player by the server. The biggest issue in CSGO was that this prediction (from my analysis) was broken and did not take into account "microadjustments" like pushing strafe key for less than one tick or whatever. I think it also didn't count in "sliding" and acceleration which was a huge deal.
    Prediction is the most important thing when dealing with networking for online games because you do not want to correct player position or action with each update. You need to have a near perfect representation of the game in your server. The fact is.. you still need one global synchronization frame from time to time so that the players wont abuse the system.

  • Leinadlink
    Leinadlink 6 місяців тому

    This was a great summary and I may even get back into the game to check it out, it's been years.
    Just a few things about your video tho:
    - The smokes don't seem to be different colors based on who throws them. Judging by the screenshot you showed, it appears to be just dynamic lighting on the volumetric smoke, or in layman's terms: it gets colored depending on the light around it.
    - I don't think the reflections being crazy is that bad as long as they can be toned down in settings or turned off completely. Remember that a lot of people that play csgo don't care that much about being super competitive, and there's plenty of casual modes and mod maps that people play for fun. So the game looking pretty is just a plus for them
    - I can't believe you didn't get instant access to the trial, you are like THE CS guy imo. Glad they turned that around

  • andre e e e

    I think a safer option for smokes would be if the bullets only pushed holes halfway through the smoke. So you'd have to shoot twice in the same spot to see through.

    I think it's very likely that the M4A1-S will have a low amount of smoke clear potential compared to the other weapons. I would assume that each gun has a separate value and possibly even a different shape that they carve out inside of the smoke.

    • Hunter Springsteen
      Hunter Springsteen 6 місяців тому +30

      Well if your talking realism rifles have insane smoke clean. A m4 556 round travels so frickin fast compared to a pistol round. Also if the valve Deb's know their guns the five seven uses a similar round to a 556 just micro and travels super quick for a pistol as well

    • tetedebug
      tetedebug 6 місяців тому +41

      Good idea, but I think it's not possible, the smoke is created from small cubes, and the hole created by the shooting of a weapon seems to correspond to the size of a cube, it's a guess I hope to be wrong because I like the idea.

    • Hunter Springsteen
      Hunter Springsteen 6 місяців тому +29

      @tetedebug I'm not a game developer but I think you could theoretically make those blocks smaller and it would just need more processing power. Very possible thay increased the size of the blocks to show off the demo

    • reptarien
      reptarien 6 місяців тому +12

      @Hunter Springsteen Totally depends. It is modular to the point that they could probably carve holes with smaller blocks while leaving the larger exterior as larger blocks. That's why volumetrics are so cool. I guess we'll just have to see.

    • Surms41
      Surms41 6 місяців тому +5

      @tetedebug You could definitely do that. Being volumetric smoke, you could carve any shape of any size. Like they have done. But that's not what the mechanic is for.

  • Ondra Spendlik
    Ondra Spendlik 6 місяців тому

    I'd say the new smoke mechanics do make defusing behind a smoke harder, but... I think they will make retakes easier in the first place, allowing you to clear the smokes you may be stuck behind without having to wait. And honestly, what may be more worrying is that it will be harder to plant the bomb. Imagine planting in default on A site Mirage. The CT smoke won't really protect you if there are some CTs behind it. They may either clear it with a nade or just start spamming your approximate position, making a hole in the smoke so they will actually see you and kill you more easily. I'm a fan of the mechanic, so perhaps the bombsites have to change (even if just the plantable area becoming bigger, let's hope that won't create a bunch more issues), or our plant spots (perhaps we will need to alternate the plant spots to lower the chance of being killed while planting). That may actually be a nice way of outplaying the CTs, just plant in a non standard position and when they try to spam the standard one, get the info on them (and possibly even a free kill).

    They should consider changing the impacts bullet have on smokes depending on the rifle/round.
    For example, mp7 being a small round leaves a very small opening where as rifles leave a larger one and give away your position more clearly.

  • CARBON MISSION
    CARBON MISSION 3 місяці тому

    It looks like Valve is hitting the nail w/ CS2. I like just about everything I've seen from it. I have some thoughts about the movement. I haven't played CS2 myself, but from what I've seen, it seems like the movement is less floaty. I think that this could be a good thing. Sometimes it's easy to fly too fast in this game when you feel like a flying gun. You can have a moment in CS where you have to be extremely quick and make a decision in milliseconds, but the game does move slow overall.
    What I wonder is how these changes will effect bhopping. Now, honestly, I don't know much about how this shit works, but I've been bhopping for most of my 5k hours of CS. On one hand, the solid and heavy movement might discourage the use of bhops. However, the sub-tick rate brings up some interesting changes to bhopping and jumping. I'm thinking that tricks like jump bugging will be hardly viable, especially with the 128 tick servers.
    But bhopping in general might be MORE viable. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the outcome of your landing would be less random with sub-tick. Your timing on a jump would be YOUR timing. This is great! If you know your movement and the surface you're running on, you can hit in the right places with your jumps and strafes to get a boost. In G.O., you're also taking a gamble with ticks, which is often way too risky.
    I think that with CS2 movement, bhopping might be encouraged. You do not feel as floaty and quick, so you are seeking a speed boost. Your option for a speed boost is still dangerous. Your enemy is more likely to hit you while executing it because of the sub-tick responsiveness, but you are safer to rely on your skills to seek the reward. The barrier to entry to bhopping is easier, but the skill ceiling is even higher because of the unlocked possibilities. The player feels more grounded into the slowness of the game with solid movement, while having better responsiveness when shit gets kicked into high gear.

    It appears the game will have legacy gun models as well as new ones for some skins. You can see in the GIF on their site, when guns switch skins they get slightly different, you can see that on all of them, one awp for example is shorter and has a different compensator or muzzle break. One m4a1 has a hook that is for attaching the strap under the barrel and the other does not

    I love it. I would also improve animations to be a bit more fluid and updating on higher fps. Also I would really love possibility to fully customize your UI. I just don't vibe with this old UI. Something like in games like WoW where you can fully customize would be awesome, btw I don't mean addon support. I just mean that I can turn on or off any piece of UI, make it smaller or bigger, change color and opacity, and change positions of scoreboard, radar and such.

    Honestly I didn't even think to compare the smoke changes with wallbangs but you're absolutely right.
    1.6 style wallbangs, some might argue are a skill element. But they also introduce a lot of cheesy RNG into the game by randomly spamming spots and hoping that an enemy is on the other side....exactly like csgo smokes.
    I'm sure they'll have to tweak the exact behaviour of smokes but in my eyes it makes a lot of sense. Smoke spamming has become pretty boring imo (cough Vertigo cough)

    The minor detail I love the most is that after shooting the awp, there's now a trail that shows bullet trajectory. When I first saw that, I was immediately reminded of that sniper mission from the original cod modern warfare, the one where you blow off the target's arm

      From the footages we've seen, it seems like every gun except silenced weapons would leave bullet trails when shot to better show where the enemy was. This also means that silenced weapons are getting buffed in a way that does not affect it's stats.

    I think the different smoke colors is just that smokes now react to lighting, the orange-y one is more exposed to the colored while the other one fits the blueish lighting between the doors
    EDIT: although it would be really cool to have coloured smokes so hopefully im wrong

    WarOwl, you may have felt like an outsider, but hell the influence you have had on the community and the growth of the playerbase that came with that, due to your videos was and still is, insane. You made counter strike more accessible for millions of players, like myself, and that should never be understated. Keep this path going with cs2!

    Love the smoke!
    it will only be useful to shoot the edges of the smoke(bigger hole), if you shoot in the middle you wont see much and it closes much faster.
    From what i have seen if you shoot in the middle of the smoke( the camera is wrong, the hole opens up in the smoke according to where your shots come from. so basicly the hole in the smoke when you shoot in the middle of the smoke, the view angle into the hole is from your gun, and not the your camera(head). )

    I think the lighting makes it even easier to focus because it's making the enemies pop more, kinda like tf2.
    Also has the Deagle been buffed? It look's a lot more accurate than it should be.
    Coloured smokes just seems like there's one in the shade?

    I'm worried about the smoke changes, but everything else looks really good. Smokes allow some very cool stealthy plays and are needed to keep AWPs from ruining the game, but I do agree that they usually slow the game and incentivize many boring strategies.
    No skins, are not going to become worthless. They will skyrocket because CS is going to become more popular than ever.

    Don't you even dare feel like you are an outsider to the CS community man. I have lost count of how many hours I've spent going through all of your tutorial videos: how to execute a site, aim, and even have a game sense. You taught me how to play the game from the ground up from when I started playing this game 7 years ago, there is not a single friend in my group that I have not recommended your videos to when they wanted to learn more about the game, and hearing that they knew this smoke from the WarOwl warms my heart.
    Please still keep your passion for the CS community, because we all love you man.

    5:55, I think in this instance the smokes are different because of the lighting. The one on the left is darker because it's in the dark, while the one on the right is lighter because the sun is shining on it

    I think the colour difference is due to lighting. They said that smokes actually react to lighting now and if you look at where the smokes are you can see one is in the shadows and the other is in the sunlight.

    About that colored difference of two smokes it is all about the lightning. If you throw a smoke in shadows it will become a darker grey smoke and if you will throw in light you get a brighter smoke.

    Network gameplay programmer here. All Source games already use subtick hit detection for guns. (This isn't actually very difficult to do accurately.) The improvement here is that they also will now do subtick calculations for movement and grenade physics which means there is no longer any input variance for starting movements or throwing grenades. The flipside is that you might actually have to be more precise to throw perfect nades depending on how they implement this system. They might have also improved feedback for firing guns based on subtick timing, but that's random speculation on my part.

    Maybe its not T or CT smoke (grey and orange) but I think the normal smoke is grey, but when its thrown on dirt, it will mix the color of the smoke with the color of the sandy ground :)
