16:9 lmao ropz does the same shit


The_Geo_Modernist

Every mom ever: "Don't get to close to the screen. It will make you go blind." This guy:


MrXwiix

There's a dutch saying that your eyes will turn square if you stare at a screen for too long. I guess this guy will have rectangle eyes


LordSpeechLeSs

Same saying in Sweden!


SeBook05

And in Germany!


ikidnappeopleonroblx

Given how he can’t see the borders of the screen nothing will change


TarOfficial

Doesn't matter to him. If it isn't 15-14, his monitor isn't on.


Mirage9000

Seriously though how many years until he goes completely blind by flashbangs!


FoundTheWeed

Real gigachads close their eyes before the flash and shoot from memory


Roy_likes_pie

the true Gigachad doesn't ever get flashed, because his monitor wasn't even on in the first place

You can take the boy out of 4:3 aspect ratio, but you can't take 4:3 out of the boy


ddizbadatd24

seriously tho how does he spot a pixel movement at the corner being that close?


Toaster_Bathing

He doesn’t. probably would be dead anyway even if he did spot them


99RedBalloon

Literally why 4:3 stretched master race


Wintermute1v1

4:3 stretched with literal black duct tape on the sides of my monitor to simulate black bars. My FOV is atrocious but I play at .8 at 400 dpi sens so if someone is off to the side, I’m fucked anyway.


TKYooH

.8 400 what the fuck. I’m here at 0.84 800.


Toaster_Bathing

0.86 but i see you


haloti

Bro are you fuckin with me


Wintermute1v1

Nope just a lunatic that uses CS as an outlet for my OCD and ADHD.


AlwaysLearningTK

No reason to mention either of those things as they have nothing to do with this. Adhd especially has no relation to this.


Soothesayers

There is no qualifier for enjoying a form of media. I used to smoke salvia and get into dumpsters in BF:BC2 and spin around in circles for hours. I got a lot of enjoyment from it. I had numerous teammates join me.


TravelSalt

He’s not saying you need those diagnoses to play the game. He’s saying that this game, and specifically the way he chooses to play it, is a great outlet for his mental health conditions. But inb4 “no you’re stupid”


AlwaysLearningTK

And I'm saying that makes no sense. He's describing the way he plays the game to be because of those conditions. They're not. It literally doesn't make any sense. He simply enjoys it that way because he enjoys it that way. His conditions aren't the reason for it and other people with the same conditions won't feel the same as they're not the reason for it in the first place. I speak from experience here lol.


TravelSalt

Wait why use the duct tape?


Overburdened

Meanwhile Elige has his monitor in a different timezone.


Aug24

Elige is the one guy I know of who’s been promoting healthy gaming since eternity


LeMagican

His wrist position is concerning tho but he does stretches and shit so he’s probably fine


Wintermute1v1

Dr. Levi on YouTube has some great content and stretches specifically aimed at gamers. Worth checking out.


y2kkmac

That just means Elige will still be able to see when he's 45.


fenixspider1

my gf does this exact same thing to my phone


IRL_Horse

Gave me a good chuckle not gonna lie


AdamoA-

Okay so just for fun I tried and it made me sick... I know I'm old (35 years old) but man it was really uncomfortable.


TurbulentDesigner829

If someday u decided to try this again just make sure to have some orange slices


Steki3

- Make sure you have no degree motion sickness - Get a monitor that has no ghosting - Has eyesight to spare - ??? - Profit


zb0t1

Some of my friends and me used to play like this on Quake :)


AdamoA-

I played quake3 duel for years and watched the events as well and I dont recall anyone who played like this (extreme) Most weird shit was the russians who played with their mkb on their laps (unlink etc) :)


zb0t1

Yes russian style) (Many RU players, and ofc Rapha). Amongst the pros nobody except sometimes Stermy had monitors close to them (not as close as Yekindar ofc, but almost). It was mostly the younger generation, but we were just TDM/CTF players who never got into duel.


PM_MOI_TA_PHILO

> CTF such a shame we don't have this gamemode in csgo.


mloofburrow

We do. It's called Hostage Rescue, and nobody plays it.


aTempes7

I'm so happy I found someone older than me being active in the CSGO community (I'm 34), feel less weird now


aimbotcfg

38 here. There are plenty around this age (and older)


therealcrazed

33 here. Been at it for 20 years. It's apart of me now. I've thrown raging parties at my house with 50+ people and I was still in the back room finishing a double OT game. Father now. Still going hard.


aTempes7

Nice haha, we should make a retirement clan or whatever


sirfz

Naa you're too young, sorry


TheSeagullAstronaut

27 here but mentally 55 according to my friends. Sup boys.


No-Paleontologist560

You've found another mate, 36 here!


Psyko_sissy23

Im in my 40's. I've been playing cs on and off since about 2001 or so. I've been playing csgo steadily since like 2017 give or take. I started playing csgo in 2015.


AlwaysLearningTK

34 isn't old and cs as a series has been around for so long that you have players even in their 50s.


Jenaxu

I can't even get that close without crawling onto my desk lmao


Toaster_Bathing

31 and play this way out of habit because my mouse would hit my monitor base otherwise (Well, not THIS close)


Risi30

He can smell their fear of random flank


QuarantinedBean115

this has to be bad for your eyes right? edit: its not good for your eyes please dont do it long term


randomperson18492

Not really. What’s bad for your eyes is looking at screens in the dark, and straining your eyes for long periods of time without looking out the window or something of the sort. Reading a book for 2 hours straight is as bad as looking at a screen as stupid as it sounds.


layasD

Ill just leave this here: > We've all heard that using the computer in a dark room is bad for your eyes---but this claim has absolutely no basis in scientific fact. It started as an old wives' tale, and that's where it should rest. Unfortunately, this unfounded myth keeps making the rounds in households and on the internet. >To be fair, viewing a bright screen in a dark room does have an impact on your eyes, but not in a way that directly affects your vision. Rather, the combination of bright-screen-dark-room causes you to blink less, and that causes your eyes to dry out. Dryness leads to irritation and aches, but your vision itself suffers no long-term effects.

Kabft

Yes, it can be bad for your eyes. Ignore the other replies here that spread misinformation. Taken from the website of the American Optometric Association: "People who do an excessive amount of near-vision work may experience a false or "pseudo" myopia. Their blurred distance vision is caused by overuse of the eyes' focusing mechanism. After long periods of near work, their eyes are unable to refocus to see clearly in the distance. Clear distance vision usually returns after resting the eyes. However, constant visual stress may lead to a permanent reduction in distance vision over time."


Toaster_Bathing

What amount of hours per day is constant


LOOPbahriz

not long term no


YeetStreetBoys

If this is bad for your eyes going outside in the Sun is doing an insane amount of damage.


Pandalicioush

Well, staring at the sun will.

Lapsuuden

This sub: i dont get why everyone isnt using 16:9 16:9 players:


Obh__

Then again some 4:3 players do this too, like Aunkere


Izbitoe_ebalo

He's playing with blackbars, so it's not that much different.


fenixspider1

what is the point of that ?


YEKINDAR_GOAT_ENTRY

More fps


Cole_James_CHALMERS

Had to check if B1t used 16:9 but apparently he doesn't


p00pm00

There is no reason not to use 16:9 other than people wanting to copy pro settings. A majority of the people using 4:3 that aren't pros didn't play cs 1.6 or weren't even born when it was big. Hence, no reason to be using 4:3 other than copying others settings.


TherosLycan

16:10 masterrace


TheDave101

It's what Hooxi plays, I think :D


Tekzy

Hence masterrace


MordorsElite

4:3 Vs 16:9 is all about visibility. 4:3 stretched makes everything that's on your screen larger and therefore easier to see. 16:9 on the other hand slightly increases your fov. However in CSGO, and this is true especially for pros, you should already be aiming roughly where an enemy can peek from. And if you are off by 90°, the chances of you hitting the flick are tiny regardless of you seeing them. One thing is important to keep in mind. When you see a clip about someone missing another player due to 4:3, it is very obvious what just happened. On the other hand it is almost impossible to see the advantage 4:3 gives you, this is more about feeling. Also while I agree that almost every csgo player whos playing 4:3 is doing so because they copied someone else, I don't think it's a bad thing. It obviously works at least well enough so people don't mind it.


Burgarnils

This should honestly be the top comment under every guy who's face is so far up their own ass that they can't comprehend any reason to not have the exact same settings as them.


outYeTan

It's brain-dead, literally the same shit comments about resolution for years. It's like looking through a telescope at something and then looking directly at it and saying look its still there, no difference


Chosen--one

You have no idea why people play 4:3


CriticalCreativity

I vastly prefer 4:3 to 16:9. Bigger, fatter targets and it's easier to see movement.


youridv1

4:3 helps with awping. There’s something funky with the awp scope (and cs viewport in general). Basically how far you need to move your mouse is not linearly connected to the amount of degrees you need to turn. Some people prefer. 4:3’s feeling


imsolowdown

4:3 stretched makes models wider which can make it easier to aim. It's similar to how scoping in makes it easier to aim, I don't see anyone saying that there's no reason to double-scope with snipers. 4:3 black bars, on the other hand, is pretty stupid imo.


wawsdtgtfzhn

also fps


piccolo1337

kennyS played with blackbars. And he was a pretty fucking good player at the time.


raydoge

There are definitely reasons to use 4:3 besides of copying others' settings. Specifically 4:3 stretched. For laptop users it helps a lot since the models are more visible. Also, to an extent, it helps plenty in improving the game's performance depending on the setup. FOV might lose 4:3 users rounds at times, but few rounds should not determine everything.


TeamINSTINCT37

I get there might be benefits but laptop and performance reasons are a terrible excuse in 2022.


raydoge

Not totally wrong. But for me, not having to put my face into the monitor or squint my eyes to see players a slight distance away is definitely great. Guess this is really a you do you situation. And very sorry for bringing up excuses that are horrible in 2022. Guess i should uninstall csgo until i have a tower :)


TeamINSTINCT37

I mean it’s irrelevant for pro players ha.


raydoge

That's true. However I think a lot of them sticks with it simply because they got used to it since back then. :)


outYeTan

You obviously don't understand how it works. Lower resolution is magnified, it's easier to see. Simple benefit that helps certain peoples vision, you're brain dead if you don't understand that


TeamINSTINCT37

You read the comment I replied to? They didn’t mention that at all. Also it isn’t magnified because of the lower res it’s magnified when you stretch it. Some pros still play black bars and they just chops off the side


hurzinator

higher fps for me is the biggest + for 4:3


Rhed0x

4:3 stretched helps with long range shots but then again, I'm sitting more than an arms length away from my monitor.


endl0s

It's a carry over from playing since CS 1.3.


fenixspider1

4:3 allows lower res, so potato gang are happy if they can get better fps by doing that


braindeadmonkey2

Is it so hard to grasp the concept that bigger targets are easier to hit?


seiyamaple

Bigger targets that move much faster


braindeadmonkey2

Yes that's the one drawback


Elibrius

right lol. "no reason" my ass, it literally makes the game easier


braindeadmonkey2

Exactly


thefaptard

and then there's me who plays 1 1/2 arms away, leaning back... no wonder i can't hit shit lol


asdfstrike

JDM is that you?

Not my eyes anyway.


JoinMyGuild

How can you even see anything


scr0llbaer

why not just using a larger screen? because what these players do is actually physical sports and they move with their whole upper body back and forth to adjust their field of view depending on the situation?


Tobygas

He is trying to sniff the smokes through the monitor


agent218

Why does he do it? Why is it better than looking at it from a normal distance?


nap27er

how can he even see?
