Competitive CS:GO Tutorial & Help (Getting Started)

[Step 1]

This is a chatting program that stands for Mardam-Bey Internet Relay Chat. With this, you can connect to various networks and enter chatting channels. For our purpose, this program can be used to find teams and players, scrim, and ring (i.e. play a pug or for a team needed an extra player at that particular moment).

http://www.mirc.com/

[Step 2]

GameSurge is a popular CS network. There are also others such as Quakenet (more popular in Europe). I prefer GameSurge, and will use this as an example. Sign up for an account at the link below, and get emailed your credential for mIRC or any other IRC chat programs for that matter.

https://gamesurge.net/

[Step 3]

Open mIRC, and go to Tools > Options. Expand/Collapse the Connect (+) section and click on servers. Find GameSurge, double click to expand, click on Random Server, and then select OK.

You can then go to the same location (i.e. collapse the Connect (+)), but this time go to options. Click on Perform. In this area you will check the "Enable Perform on Connect", and make sure All Networks is there. In the empty box you will type:

/authserv auth account pw

This will allow you to auto connect to the GameSurge network on opening mIRC.

[Step 4]

If it worked, you will see a message in the box such as Authserv, I recognize you. Now you will focus on joining channels. These channels vary according to what you are looking for. You can join a channel via Commands > Join Channel. Commands can be found at the top next to tools.

These are the channels:

#csgotryout - find yourself a team.
#csgoringer - play for a team or pug that needs a player.
#csgoscrim - play a match against another team.
#csgo - support CS:GO and find scrims, tryouts, and ring here.

Always type # (pound) in front of the channel you want to go in. So if you want to go into a Music channel, you would type #Music

Note: You can also go back to Tools > Options > Connect > Options > Perform and on each subsequent line type /join #channelname. This will auto join channel on connects. Staying in a channel is known as "idling".

[Step 5]

For a tryout (#csgotryout) you would type something like: 1 East player, mature, dedicated and active looking for a team. You can post whatever you want. You can also look for players and start your own team.

For a scrim (#csgoscrim) you could type: 5 vs. 5, East, Ours, de_any. Ours would mean your server. The rest is self explanatory.

For a ringer (#csgoringer) you would type: East ringer here or if you need a ringer - Need an East ringer asap for scrim.

[Step 6]

Arm yourself with a chatting program and a microphone so that while in-game you could talk to your teammates. While talking in-game while dead has been made very useful, a Voice Over IP (VOIP) is very good. Here are a few:

http://www.ventrilo.com/
http://teamspeak.com/
http://mumble.sourceforge.net/

These have been arranged in order of preference on my part. Feel free to use any, they all work well and as intended. Its easy to use them, so read the instructions on joining or creating a server to chat on.
__________________________________________________ ____________

I hope this has helped some of you enter the game in a more competitive fashion. I know it can be hard at time to find players to play with more seriously other than just joining Classic Competitive servers. This is here to make it not only easier for people to achieve this goal, but to bring mIRC and GameSurge back to its former glory at being a large hub for the CS community.

If you like this thread, please +rep and post to get it to the top. If you enjoy it very much, request a stick as well. See you all in-game!

that's just like webchat ... how innovating.

also, if the user can find NNScript, get that, install it before launching mIRC for the first time, it automates some tasks as authing in networks and other stuff...

there's no official download anymore cause the site is down.

tehp1r4t3b4y.se/torrent/6643857/ ignore keygen, nnscript is bound on that pack or

I doubt Valve will ever implement a truly competitive matchmaking system. You will always have random people joining and not being serious. Conversely, with mIRC and ventrilo you can rest assured that someone who went through all of those steps is at least remotely interested in competitive play.

Another point is that team matchmaking is not the same as what I proposed above. You don't find a team or ring via matchmaking. Lastly, playing with better teams is what makes you better, not playing with those at the same skill cap as you.
