Cool, we could start an OCAU:GO steam group or something for random pickup games? Thanks, I think I'll just hop into some games this evening and see how I go. After chatting with a friend it sounds like the lower tiers aren't especially intimidating or even necessarily at the skill level I'm already at so hopefully I won't be holding anyone back. Yeah I agree with you about the economy just getting messed up in casual games. Casual is still kind of fun but CS isn't exactly a complex game to wrap your head around to begin with so it seems a bit unnecessary for them to have made the economy changes and in the end it makes the flow of a match just feel quite random. Thanks for mentioning Unity, I've seen plenty of streamers and youtubers playing on ESEA servers and asking about an equivalent was going to be a follow up question. I shall check it out. I'm really loving CS:GO so far, I tried CS:S on friends' computers a couple of times and felt really alienated and put off by the feel of it. I have no idea if it's just that enough time has passed now since I last played CS or if they really did nail more of the original CS feeling, but either way GO is so awesome to get into. Especially after playing a whole lot of BF4 earlier in the year which was just ughh.
