My name is Byron "CowOnCrack" Challoner and this article is a follow up
to the article "Tactics - the Basics." In this previous article, I
talked in depth about tactical ideas and now I will turn to the other
important component of winning the war - strategy. I should mention
that these are merely my ideas and I make no pretension that I'm the
end all and be all of CS knowledge, but as an experienced player in the
twilight of my career who has learned a few tricks along the way, I
feel obligated to share some of what I've learned and give back to the
community that taught me so much, in the hopes that other newer players
Before ruination, before n0thing but headshots, before Death Raizers
4... before before before, there was br_wallenberg. With the rise of

Following the fall of the Championship Gaming Series, many speculated that the American Counter-Strike 1.6 scene would once again reign supreme. With the return of greats such as Matt “warden” Dickens, Danny “fRoD” Montaner, Michael “method” So, Sal “vol...
As famous for his fine movie output (plaste 4 and 5, analyzed collision

movie-making this movie clocks in at just under 3 and a half minutes.
Being as its star is now a member of Finland's best team viewers have
reason to be eager to watch this unfinished piece regardless.
Rather than talk about specific tactics, I'm going to discuss some of
the concepts that are in use behind all tactics that can be used to
build any tactic you like. I will give specific tactics in later
articles and devote a whole article to strategy.
Bruno "bit1" Fukuda has been one of the mainstays of the mibr line-up
since early 2007 yet is still only the tender age of 18. With a
victory at Dreamhack in 2007, back-to-back high placings at GameGune
(2nd in 2007, 1st in 2008) and a 2nd at ESL EM III LA this year the
young Brazilian has been one of a group who have shown that mibr is not
just cogu, performing as they had done when the core of the team left

team comprised of a number of his mibr team-mates and they look to
fight for the Brazilian crown.
Back in 2003 when few top players had their own movie Brian "destrukt"
Flander released this sequel to rapturous acclaim throughout the North
American CS community. Filled with kills from demos he had been
holding back and edited with a high energy soundtrack of the day dkt2
quickly made its mark and shifted dktpads around the globe. Six years
later in an age of over-editing and effects abuse dkt2 still stands out
as a shining gem in the mire of the CS frag movie genre.
