Counter-Strike: Global Offensive veteran Jordan ‘n0thing’ Gilbert is no stranger to common tactics used by players, and his game IQ was in full display by predicting then completely shutting down the opposing team.

Valve’s latest iteration of their team-shooter released in 2012, and the franchise has so far stood the test of time as it is still an extremely popular competitive title to sink hours into.

After a while of playing in the CS:GO servers people start to get a feel for the enemy’s tendencies during a match. Along with their game knowledge, players like n0thing can use a bit of past experiences to pull off incredible plays.

ComplexityN0thing has been in the trenches of CS:GO servers for a while and has definitely picked up a thing or two from his pro career.

Noob timings make CS:GO easy for n0thing

During his June 4 stream, n0thing was pushing up B-Main on Cache while giving his Twitch Chat the play-by-play of what he thought the enemy team was doing.

N0thing had correctly predicted how he’d encounter his first two kills, but his next summation, that someone was in squeaky, didn’t seem to pan out immediately. No matter, he moved onto his next analysis, and jiggle-peeked a corner to see if someone was lying in wait for him.

“If not (in squeaky) then he’ll be in A-Main to my left,” n0thing said. “Yep, he’s right there. Comeback and peek from a different angle. Hold it, he might repeek it in 3-2-…”

Finishing his countdown was the sound of his AK-47’s first shot going through the head of a Terrorist peeking right when n0thing expected them to.

As for that Terrorist that n0thing thought was going to peek him earlier but wasn’t there, his stream eventually learned that they were indeed held up in squeaky as the last man alive.

“That’s kinda not fair”

N0thing’s whole play was definitely impressive, but the streamer even acknowledged that what happened in the round had a lot to do with the “impulsive instinct” that lower tier players tend to give in to.

“I hate when they actually like play perfectly into the timing,” n0thing said. “Because what I call that is ‘noob timing’ guys.”

ComplexityKnowing how “noobs” will react to plays in CS:GO gives n0thing a huge competitive edge over them.

It seems players like n0thing are so aware of this “noob timing” that they know what some opposing players will want to do before they know it themselves.

Since stepping back a bit from pro play, people tuning into n0thing’s Twitch channel have grown accustomed to learning a thing or two from the veteran. Especially when plays like these turn out for the better.


S1mple banned again on Twitch for fourth time over “aggression”

CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev has apparently been banned again on Twitch, for his fourth time in total on the platform.

The Ukrainian is the star of Natus Vincere’s CSGO squad and generally considered one of the best CS:GO players in the entire world, but even that isn’t enough to save you from the wrath of Twitch mods.

S1mple is no stranger to temporary bans from the site, and it seems he added to his tally again on Oct. 30, with his channel being taken offline out of nowhere.

It seems that like in the past, the pro has once again been banned for using a slur while streaming, but this latest episode isn’t quite like the others.

Shortly after news of the ban dropped, s1mple Tweeted that he was banned for using a Russian slur, but he claims he only said it because he was upset with another player for saying it on his stream.

“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform,” he wrote. “I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules).”

While s1mple filled fans in on why he was banned, he didn’t mention how long he would be off of the platform for. Looking at his past infractions though, and it’s safe to say he’s probably looking at a 7-day break, at the very least.

The site has been known to ban repeat offenders for longer if they continue to get in hot water for the same thing, but considering how big of a name s1mple is and the circumstances surrounding this particular incident, it’s hard to say.

A good number of his fans noted that Twitch was quick to ban the Na’Vi pro after he slipped up, but still haven’t taken action against any one of the countless channels that rebroadcast s1mple’s streams to try and steal viewers.

Still, the pro doesn’t seem so much bothered by the ban as he does annoyed, which makes sense because he doesn’t really need to stream so to speak, considering all the money he’s made playing CS:GO professionally. That doesn’t really help his fans though, who will have to find someone else to watch while they wait for his return.
