What's your favorite tactic when playing in a CM? I love rushing and at the same time faking, for example first rush at B in de_dust2 and then head to bomb site A to plant the bomb.

    Oh well then, my favorite thing is to make everyone buy M4's, and then we stick together and fire together. This creates something I like to call the "M4 shotgun".

    CSS doesn't has tactics? Have you ever played a cm? In order to win with only skill you must be in a clan with top players and even in that case, an other clan with superior tactics and good skill can beat you!
    (I'm talking about playing 5vs5 in a de ladder like the ones organized by ESL, clanbase etc.).

    My clans been in enough friendly clan matches to know that no tactics or just general blockade points are the best tactics. Controlling everyone specficially doesn't give the members enough freedom to tail enemy movements to win.

    Please stop calling it a cm, you're the only person in the world that calls it that. It's just a "match" or a "scrim" (if just for practice). We have lots of strats but a) they're too complex to describe without writing an essay, b) they're secret.

    Stop calling it a cm? Anyway, tactics are not that secret. You could tell me because even if a knew your tactics, I couldn't tell what you would do each round.

    There is this one pub I go to where a these regulars hang out. They have mics, and things get pretty tactical whenever they are online together. If they aren't, its like a regular CSS server.

    Tactics? The only tactics that I know are "EVERY1 RUSH B LOLOL!!!1!!" or "RUSH A ROFL GO NUBL4TS!1!11!" or "LETZ CAMPZOR LOLZ!!!1!!". Really these are the only tactics available for Cs:s.

    My tactics in CSS include spamming flashes and smokes so that my enemies become so frustrated and pissed off that they are forced to commit suicide and let my kill their AFK body. Works every time.

    Just the other day the people with mics coordinated a two-pronged flashbang pincer attack on de_nightfever. God it was beautiful.

    Plus, backup is always there for you. When someone with a mic was pinned down, the other mic-teammates immediately responded and reported their method of entry, followed by an acknoledgement or warning from the pinned guy.

    Well, the team that will work together best will be the one that can listen to orders and react on them quickly. The number fo times, I have run tactics and need people to react quickly is essentail, when they do, we can usually win as the conditions on the battlefield can change in a heartbeat. Though we usually have a general idea what to do, such as attack the A objective, with so and so going short, the rest long and with CT, ti is just a case of splitting up and communicating well where the bomb and enemy is.

    Though the best layed plans can still be outskilled, there have been many times where one man has been able to stifle a 5 man rush, be it with a good nade or a strong position, skill will always play a very big part in the game, just good tactics help to tilt the game in your favour.

    I absolutely agree about plans that can be outskilled. Anyway for the guys that didn't get it, I mean tactics regarding matches either official or friendly.

    Agree. Even if you are skilled, in a pub server you usually play badly because everything is so random.

    Yeah, but I usually rush with the shotgun. By the way, using a shotgun in de_nuke when CT, is usually a wining tactic, try it!

    No its Clan Match, it is just an abbreviation. Anyway, I first saw the word scrim in COD 1.5 and they also used the abbreviation CW which stands for Clan War. Anyway I have to say that COD (Call of Duty) required even more skill compared to CSS. Tactics in that game didn't always work.

    Yes it is. The best tactic when playing in a Zombie mod server would involve in finding and holding a stronghold with grenades and much firepower found in weapons like Desert Eagle and Ak-47.
