    The Story of CSGO

    Let me tell you a story about Counter Strike enjoyment. Now, this isn’t a bedtime story, so keep your eyes fixed on your computer for a while and discover why Counter-Strike is one of the best games ever made.

    Let’s start with the history. After all, no good story has a missing background.

    Backstory

    counter-strike

    It was in the year 1999 when Counter-Strike was introduced as a modification or mod for Half-Life. As the game progressed from its beta state to a full release, it changed the classic gameplay.

    Through every version—1.6, Source, and Global Offensive—Counter-Strike has been the setter of standards when it comes to competitive first-person shooter games. It now has the largest community, and teams all over the planet are famous for how they never fail to demonstrate their strategies and teamwork in tournaments, whether it’s local, regional, or international.

    Counter-Strike as an e-sport is still attracting more and more audiences from across continents even until now. It’s safe to say the game is a living legend.

    What Makes It Fun

    If you’re a non-player, then perhaps you’re wondering what’s so interesting about CSGO. Well, five major things that make CSGO, CSGO.

    Weapons

    Weapons-CS-GO

    The first engaging stuff about the game is the availability of firearms. There’s a challenge behind it because you’ll have to practice a lot to understand the behavior of a weapon. Controlling it is a skill. The precision of your aim is also an advantage. The weapons will hit your target correctly. Even firing recklessly can yield to lucky kills! Aside from that, when shootouts occur, the fact that you don’t know who will win with what kind of weapon is something that can’t be predicted.

    Rounds

    CSGO also has short rounds, making it more stimulating. It’s because the rounds are short that the player needs to come up with a strategy to win. Will he come from behind? Will he stick with his usual tactics? There are several options for the player.

    Dying in one round even excites, making the player more hyped up for his teammates for the next tension-filled round.

    Graphics

    CSGO has also been known for its excellent appearance. It creates that feeling that you’re really the one shooting in the game. Apart from that, the effects are commendable. If a window is cracked, you’ll see that it’s clearly cracked. If there are broken cabinets, you’ll be able to identify them as broken cabinets. It’s a fun game to play because the graphics are well established.

    Counter-Tactics

    cs_go_header_valve

    There are tons of counter-tactics available for a shooter. For instance, you can counterattack snipers using a smoke grenade, by planting a bomb, by flanking, or working with your teammates.

    You can counter rushing by being in a good position, waiting patiently, listening thoroughly, or using a long-range weapon.

    Culture

    Even though the game is highly competitive, friendship still exists even among rivals. When dead players form an instantaneous graveyard chat room, it paves the way for those players to give compliments to one another or even recruit players.

    What are you waiting for? Play CSGO now!

    Here’s what literature doesn’t tell us about saws:

    When It Comes To Health And Fitness

    Contrary to what some people may think about saws in general, the fact remains that they are not just meant to help you cut something down albeit that easily.

    Installing an Inverter Generator for Your Library

    Don’t you appreciate storytelling? Aside from the new words we can learn from reading; storytelling allows both adults and children alike to enter a new world and learn valuable lessons from the characters. Storytelling ignites the fire in our hearts and brings life in a lifeless library.

    But wouldn’t it be a shame if you can’t tell stories because there is no power in your library?

    And this, my comrades, is why you need to install an inverter generator. Today, we’ll answer the questions you have in mind.

    “What is this generator you speak of?”

    Inverter generators are the topics of conversations nowadays. These generators output AC, then that current gets converted to DC voltage, then “inverted” once more to clean AC voltage, which means there is a constant flow of current in your appliances.

    “What will I get from it?”

    DC-AC_inverter_of_the_Royer_circuitThese type of generators combine the power of a gas-powered generator coupled with an electronic inverter board, which is in charge of giving cleaner power and variable speed. The board allows the generator to alter the engine speed based on the power output that the user needs.

    For example, if you’re running a light and a fan in your library, the generator will run with less noise and use less fuel.

    Because of this technology, the generator can also supply a sine wave which is equal to the power delivered by a utility. That means the electric current is stable and consistently provided, enabling the consumer to power more delicate electronics like tablets and laptops without power fluctuation.

    Inverter generators are perfect when there is a power outage in the library, permitting you to finish that story you’re sharing with proper lighting and an environment that’s conducive to learning.

    However, you must know that it cannot power multiple large appliances at the same time like a refrigerator and an air conditioner. It can only power one to two small appliances like a fan and one light bulb. You can power a laptop and a television individually.

    “Are there portable ones?”

    Yes, of course! Portable inverter generators exist! Compared to the conventional portable generators we know, they’re much lighter and smaller. For instance, a 1,000-watt inverter generator weighs approximately 30 pounds only.

    Inverter generators are almost 20% more fuel-efficient than standard generators too, allowing you to reduce carbon footprint and be a part of a greener, more sustainable planet!

    “Perfect! Where can I get one?”

  • The Power Of Storytelling

    storytelling

    Storytelling comes in many forms. It could be in word form like those used on books and other texts. It could also be in graphic form like those used in banners and other images. It could even be in action form like those used in commercials and other presentations.

    But do you know what makes all these storytelling forms equally powerful?

    It’s the fact that:

    Storytelling is a form of communication.

    When you communicate, you tell a story to people. When you tell a story to people, people will listen. When people listen, they tell that story to others. And so on and so forth, until the time comes that your story will be known all over the world. It all starts with communication, just like how you would do when you’re conversing with someone you’re in love with or when collaborating with someone you’re doing business with.

    Storytelling is also a form of relation.

    And by relation, it means relating to the story you’re telling and making it more understandable for specific types of audiences. And by relation, it also means relating to the audience of the story you’re telling and making it more understandable for other types of audiences. Ultimately, this will pave the way for a wider reach and a greater chance for your story to be heard all over the world.

    Indeed, storytelling is powerful. Even those who prefer staying in their own introvert palace would be able to find this form of communication, as well as form of relation, refreshing to the core – even something that would make anyone want to learn more about things, as well as something that would make anyone want to teach more about things.
