CS:GO From a Beta .3 old players prospective
First off
Great job with GO. The game has progressed way farther than I ever thought it could. I really enjoy competitive mode. The guns all seem to have an actual use now with minor exceptions(autoshotgun).

I like all the new guns as well. That being said I have a♥♥♥♥♥♥list.

1. Competitive mode seems to be ruined a lot by unranked guys replacing high high ranked guys on the alternative team. This can go both ways and a high skilled unranked player can also be on a low ranked match becoming a ringer. Unranked players should play primarily with themselves or the last 3 bottom tier ranks only. I think this should be forced untill someone has a rank.

2. I would like to see some kind of deterant for hackers posted on the main in game menu. Total hacker violations caught with a number. I also think a 1 year ban is very low of a penalty. Hackers ruin the game for everyone that just wants a legit game. I think their steam account should have CS disabled entirly and permanently. A warning should be posted after installation.
The credit card used to purchase the game should also be banned. I don't think this is very realistic but cheating needs a much larger deterent system. This has always been the biggest problem for CS and has always been why I stopped playing a particular version.

I am not sure how the new system is working, but it seems people are getting nailed. I would also really like to have a replay of the entire competitive match available to me after the match so I can watch players that I deemed questionable. If we can watch a match after the fact first person from the enemy, we can then submit a report for a player and the replay is saved server side for an admin to spectate and ban as needed. This is probably the best way to take care of competitive cheating.

3. Console command RETRY no longer works. I used the command more than anything other than exit. Can we add this again please?

4. The current biggest issue I see now is the ghost footsteps I constantly hear and wonder if it is a real player or not. I have lost a few matches and probably won a few due to this glitch.
For me this is priority number 1.

5. I hate the in game pre recorded voices. They are fine and it is probably just me, but would like option to disable them. Players also spam the crap out of them as well.

6. Not really important more annoying to me. Achievments with games like CS and TF2 farmable(not sure why you would). Make it so they only work in an official server.
Other than that Great job.

Completely agree, especially with easy access to replays. For competitive match replays, it only has to be Valve competitive server matches, lowering the resource requirement for Valve. It's a seriously needed implementation.

I think of all the errors on all the maps your footstep point is the only one that you mentioned that is actually relevent to gameplay. Basically valve has a good selection of maps at this point. Not TOO MANY, but enough that you can cycle through them without getting bored. What they need to do is focus on eliminating bugs and errors across the board: on maps, on pistols, on sounds. Then we can do all that added content stuff people on this forum having been asking for like more weapons, gear, maps, modes.
The bugged footstep noise occurs when someone takes over a bot

And completely agree on the cheating part, Every time i encounter them it keeps me from playing the games for days or weeks. If Valve really wants CS GO to become a popular game they should make this their top priority.

i think footsteps have too much echo and you can hear like "ghost" steps, i'm not sure

Or raise the price of the game by adding a competitive+. This will cost $20 as an add on to the current game as DLC. You will have the option to play with only Competitive+ players. As it will cost significantly more to be banned and you will have to be ranked to get to play it. More money loss is a major deterant as most of these hackers are kids who don't care about $15.

thats a good idea :-) but wont ban all the cheaters ofcourse.

Good post, finnaly something positive among all the whining about the banning system :-) (system which can be improved probably but is very good in general).
I play CS since beta 4 or 5; never very competitive but just a bit. Did play sourcce but couldt get good at it.
Csgo feels more like the old days, in a positive way :D

Also need to allocate at least 20 servers for just Brazillians.

Add to CS comp+ being 100Tic servers due to extra money

Really want that RETRY command back.

Add one issue. This does not happen very often. Terrorist jumps out of apartment in de_inferno and gets killed mid jump while he has the bomb. Bomb lands under the truck and is no longer able to pick it up.
