Shroud Talks About Counter Strike 2 Player Count and MM System Flaws

Prominent Twitch streamer and FPS expert, Michael “shroud” Grzesiek, has recently offered his thoughts on Counter-Strike 2 (CS2), a highly anticipated game that has caught the attention of the gaming community. Despite being in the beta testing phase, CS2 has already created a significant impact, with only 3% of the player base securing access to the game.

Potential for Record-breaking Player Counts

Shroud believes that CS2 has the potential to surpass the record-breaking player counts achieved by its predecessor, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO), with an impressive 5 million players. However, this feat cannot be achieved without addressing a significant obstacle – the MatchMaking (MM) system.

Flaws in the MatchMaking System

Shroud contends that the MM system in CSGO is flawed, and the same system in CS2 could potentially undermine the game’s overall impact. He emphasizes the importance of rectifying these deficiencies, allowing gamers to be matched appropriately according to their ranks, improving progress criteria, and achieving greater transparency. Currently, CSGO players lack a reliable way to determine their position on the ladder beyond their assigned rank, leading to mounting frustration. Furthermore, hacking remains a significant issue in CSGO’s MM system, further exacerbating the problem for players.

The Need for Improvements

Although CS2 has made several minor changes, it has yet to introduce anything significantly different from CSGO. Valve has yet to unveil any alterations to the MM system or enhancements to the anti-cheat mechanisms, which were eagerly anticipated by gamers. However, shroud believes that it is premature to denounce Valve’s efforts before the official release of CS2. Thus far, the game has received a warm reception from gamers, with players expressing their adoration for the game.

Shroud firmly believes that CS2 has the potential to dominate the gaming world, attracting a colossal 5 million players. To achieve this goal, Valve must address the underlying problems in the MM system, which remains persistently flawed in CSGO. With the necessary improvements, CS2 could undoubtedly engulf everything in its path, as per shroud’s prediction.

The success of CS2 ultimately rests on Valve’s ability to address the flaws in the MM system. The gaming community eagerly anticipates the game’s official release and hopes that Valve takes shroud’s insights into consideration. With the right improvements, CS2 could potentially surpass CSGO’s player counts and establish itself as one of the most popular FPS games of all time.
