CS GO Player Roles
If you have never been in a team you may not understand some of the roles on the team so let’s take a quick look into them:
Well this one is very clear. If you like and have good frag ability with AWP you clearly belong in AWP role.
The lurker is the sneaky player on the team and sometimes a good source of info to his team because he usually places himself on the mid of the battle instead of usual positions.
As counter-terrorist a lurker sometimes pushes and tries to kill enemies on their back and gather info for the team.
As a terrorist the lurker usually plays to cut rotations of the CTs. So he relies a lot on sound and rotation knowledge.
Pretty obvious name. If you like to use M4 and AK then you are a riffler.
IGL (In Game Leader)
Very good knowledge of the game, strats and ability to read his team and enemies. IGL has to realize during game what is the best plan for his team. Understand mistakes and strength of his team and enemy teams. IGL should have a good mental visualization of game so he can read players positions and pick the best decisions. Usually IGL may not frag as much as the other team members because he’s more focus in reading the game to his team than to himself.
Supporter is usually a player that knows how to use utility nades to give the advantage to his team. So a support knows how to place smokes, how to pop flash enemies so the Entry Fragger on the team can have the upper hand when gaining position over the map. The supporter also plays close to the entry fragger to trade the kill if his teammate dies.
The entry fragger is a agressive player with great fragging ability because as the name states he’s the first one to push. Entry fraggers usually use high mouse sensitivity because they have to do quick pushes and clear corners in the way.
Requirements to join a team
This requirements are not mandatory but will help you a lot to integrate a team.
Use a microphone
Information is very important in a fast paced game like CS GO. In a matter of seconds you can have a lot things happening and info from team mates plays a big roll on success. Writing on team chat doesn’t work because you can’t play and type at the same time and your team mates will have to lose focus on the screen to read your messages.
So if you don’t have one you can buy one very cheap. Avoid using Laptops mics because their capture quality it’s usually very poor and it catches a lot of ambient noise that will make your voice hard to understand. Use a voice chat software like TeamSpeak or Mumble because the audio quality is better than in-game.
Learn how to call
It’s very important to learn how to communicate with team on CS GO. When you have 5 players talking at the same time things can get messy and no one will understand. So keep your information short and straight. If you hear steps but don’t know how many enemies are close, just call “steps on mid”. If you see 3 enemies rushing just say “3 pushing long”, don’t just say “all pushing long” because you are not sure.
When you die use the deathcam to give your team precious information but when dead don’t talk anymore unless you really think it’s important. If your teammate is clutching (last standing player) let him play. Don’t keep saying on microphone “Throw flash!” “Hide”, etc… Let him make his decisions and hear footsteps. After the round is over you can say what you think he did right or wrong but don’t do it on middle of the round.
Also if you are going somewhere else than your usual position or if you are gonna push let your team mates know on the beginning on round. Planing the round as a team is really important so use the freeze time to exchange ideas on what to do.
So the important thing here is to keep your information short and clear. Don’t over talk and don’t be quiet all round. Share information that you find it’s useful for your team’s success.
It’s also very important to know the callouts on maps so you can tell your team mates the exact position of enemies.
Be polite and positive
You will win some games with ease and other games will seem that you are powerless and can’t do anything about it. Well whatever happens don’t start blaming and flaming your teammates. Keeping a positive mood is important to success. Saying simple things like “Nice one!” or “Good job!” will help your teammates to gain some confidence but complaining and flaming in mid game will bring them down and most of the times they will perform worse.
If you feel like someone made a mistake let them know in the end of the round politely like “You should have….”. Don’t say things “What the fuck were you thinking?”.
So it’s not bad correct mistakes of your teammates as long as you know what you are saying and you are polite to your team. Joking a bit it’s ok to keep the mood up but keep it balance. Don’t take the game too serious but don’t make it a joke all game long.
Listen to your IGL (In game leader)
IGL is a very important roll on a team. They will tell you what’s the plan for the next round. Being a IGL is hard work too so sometimes teammates may not like some strats or plans of the IGL and decide to do whatever they want instead. A lot of times the plan of your IGL may not work but if the whole team listens and executes the same plan it will help to succeed.
Even if you are the top fragger on the team don’t ignore the team plan or strat. Stick with the plan and you will see it works better than going alone.
