Don't get it.

@Stu: I believe I can explain. Player 1 is team chatting (default keybind = U) when he is suggesting "Go A", but player 2 responds in the global chat (default keybind = Y), and gives away the plan to the other team. The "facepalm" meme image is included to show that player 2 has done something very silly and player 1 (and other teammates) would be quite exasperated in such a situation. In reality it wouldn't do much because the other team would almost certainly assume that it's a trick. In fact if the other team is inexperienced this may act as an advantage as they might fall too heavily for the reverse psychology effect and swarm B, thinking that the other team is trying to trick them. It's only until a player gains an understanding of the double, triple, and even higher levels of bluff that they can truly realise that this tactic is a zero-win game. An experienced team will ignore any tactics that the opposing team broadcasts via global chat.

Oh. So it's keypresses and chat.

Yep. Nice explanation there Penguin.

Now imagine this happening on an ESports event...

I was going for a "unnecessarily long explanation" joke, but it appears to have backfired on me.

I think it is:
"You, go A!"
"Why, A it is."

avatar zeeba-G says: 9th June 2016, 16:01 PM
I was wondering if you were ok tbh lol.
avatar Dimbeak says: 9th June 2016, 18:41 PM
idk in CSGO competitive if you do that, the team will assume that you're trying to trick them and get them to stack the site. It's a legit strat.
