Going Cal-o

Recommended Posts

Well, I've decided to stop the pubbing and go into CAL Open Division. Any suggestions on finding a team, and what I can expect?

hmmm most teams would want you to be mature, be active, and be good :)

 

Uber's and My clan are entering a couple teams into cal-o hoping to easly get to main!

The hardest thing I ound about getting into a clan is that no matter how good you are, most of them want you to have "experiance". What I would suggest your first step to be is to find some 5v5's on mIRC. I dont play CS personaly anymore but I think the channel was #findpug. Good Luck!

is that 1.6? My advice is find a good group of guys you like playing with, most clans go cal-o anyways.. :D

do teams have certain positions for each guy? like point man, sniper (which i assume) etc etc?

 

Do team members just use what gun's they like best? or are a few weapons the most commonly used

here are some tips to get better....

CSDM with no sound(better reflexes)

CSDM any guns ( for mechanics )

1v1(for aim)

Aim_Map etc(for aim)

 

to go CALo you should try

#findclan

#findrecruit

forums.caleague.com

esportsea.com(pug here and talk to people)

mIRC

#findringer(ring here, if you are any good they will let you in their team)

alot of hackers, dont whine though, but if someone is beign obviouse dispute. find a good clan and ask if you can stick around with em.

 

gamesurge on irc

 

#findscrim

#calscrim

#findclan

#findringer

 

when they ask for exp means demo's etc.

 

those are all wrong

 

#sourcescrim

#sourceringer

#cssclan

#facerippers

 

 

i have entered 3 teams into Cal-O one in each division, our A team will make Main, guaranteed, C team will most likly make it, and B team will have a shot :D

good questions. generally most teams don't have set positions, but they do recognize and use skill. on my team i have a guy who knows when to watch our back if we are together.. we don't have to talk about it we just know. we have 2 guys who are the snipers but only snipe when the strat calls for it. if you are gonna rush, no point in sniping. also, it's not so much that each guy has a certain position, but when you practice maps, you use player's skillz to the best. i put our best sniper watching spots from far away.. like so on CT de_dust2, he's long A. Got my better close range guy in B, and so forth. Same thing on T, let your sniper peek and pick somebody off then your close ranger guy leads the run out into battle. etc etc. i have the best throws and usually get a nade kill every round and use flashes, so i do most of the throwing flashes n stuff.

 

kinda rambling, but CAL is SOOOO much fun. it takes dedication and being serious. and LOTS of rules. set screenshots, set practices, you will be amazed at how different it is from public. i haven't played on a public server in God knows how long. it's just not even close to 5v5 serious gameplay. whole different wolrd. hope you like it. my email is [email protected], my clan will be starting nightly practices here pretty soon going over our map strategies and getting used to each other again.. trying new ideas etc etc. so hit me up if you wanna play.

 

 

oh, and as far as guns used. it's all about economy, get used to "save rounds" or eco rounds, the common thing is kits and nades on CT are more important than guns. if you win first round, buy semi-autos or deagle to still have the winning edge but accumulate alot of cash. if you lose first round, save 1 or 2 rounds, buy nothing at all so you gain enough cash to give you a better chance at winning rounds 4 and on. you don't want to get into a position where some players have money some don't, or you have to buy crappy guns. most common is AK's / Colts with one or 2 awps. if you keep losing, gotta have a save round or two or else you will be caught buying crappy guns the rest of the half and never have a chance to gain momentum.

 

Uber - main guarunteed? that's quite a claim, i've played Main for 2 seasons in 1.6 and 1 in source for Infallible. it's hard!
