If you are struggling to go anywhere near positive in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and you are getting frustrating at being demolished by the opposite team over and over, then you might want to seek some advice and go into it with a different perspective.
In this video I go through every mode (new and old), how to handle your weapon when it kicks like a mule, hotspots in Arms Race and more interesting stuff for you to apply on the field. It's more of a short beginners guide to CS, although you could do with a refresher if you're returning to it after a considerable amount of time.

To consistently do well at Counter Strike you need to have a good aim and cat like reactions. While I can't say much to help you there, understanding map patterns and weapon characteristics is just as essential. One thing I didn't mention is tweaking your sensitivity to find the configuration that works best for you. A higher sensitivity than default is much more comfortable for me, so try playing around with it yourself in offline modes.
When I put way too much time into CS: Source years ago, I was rarely pulling in what could be considered great performances. Even when I returned to Source recently nothing had really changed. But that's what's so addicting about it. There is just something about the gameplay that fixates you in improving and impressing every round, and it gets the heart pumping when you're the last remaining team-mate that everyone is watching. At least it used to for a long time for me, not so much now. New players will get to experience the ups and downs for themselves.
Hats off to those that can claim they are good on PC, because it isn't easy. I used to always join servers that were running the map "cs_assault" as it was my one of my favourites. It was a shame to see it hasn't made an appearance in GO, but one of the new Demolition maps called Sugarcane plays like a spiritual successor so that dampens the tears a little bit.
Tell me, what is your favourite map? Has that changed since CS:GO? Bank is pretty awesome.
