HOW TO FIND A COMPETITIVE TEAM FOR CS:GO

csgo-wallpaper

Back when I did my questions and answers video a popular question that kept cropping up was; “How do I find a team for CS:GO?” or “Where do I look to find other players looking for teams?”.

There are many sites you can look at to find teams that are recruiting but the ones you want to use will depend on whether you are from Europe or America.

European Sites:

American Sites:

When submitting a thread looking for a team it’s always good to offer a structured layout detailing all the relevant things about you as a player as well as what you expect from the team you plan to join. It’s always best to be honest in your application, if a team picks you up for a trial thinking you are “high” when you are clearly not you’ll most likely get dropped very quickly and will have wasted everyone’s time.

Below I have written a template for you to use if you wish.

APPLICATION TEMPLATE:

A word of advice:

Once you have found your team don’t “clan hop”. Stick it out, even in rough losing streaks. The key to a good team is consistency and maintaining a solid line up. That way you can build upon your mistakes and constantly tweak certain strategies going forward.

The reason why a lot of teams fold within the first month is due to one member throwing a hissy fit and leaving after losing three or more officials. It’s really hard for a team to progress if they have to keep explaining the same strategies to new members when they could be using that time to innovate them and come up with a whole arsenal of different set ups. So basically… you need a core five that are in it for the long haul!

    If you have tried making an application for a job, do EXACTLY the same here, just with relevant things for the subject.

    - Suggestion, if you want to be taken, DO NOT list anything that could implicate you as a bad person or player.

    For the teams’ leaders – If you get more than the amount of people you need, sort… Do not waste time on checking everyone out, rather look at what they can do and experience of theirs from the application. – Basically how it’s done out in the real life :)

    Also list under your role, what you are best at… Agressive, support w/e… It indicates your playstyle and also might make it easier for the team whether you are what they need or not. Know yourself.

    Hi Hatton. I love your job :P
    I got a question: I’m from SouthAmerica (Argentina). Can I play in American Sites? I think the Ping will not let play in there.
    Sorry for my horrible english.
