Counter-Strike

Global Offensive — Play Like a Pro

Are you a regular CS:GO player but aren’t sure what you can do to reach a higher level of play? Are you curious about how CS:GO pros think when they play and practice? If so, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive - Play Like a Pro is your opportunity to learn skills and strategies from a seasoned professional, gain a deeper understanding of fundamental game concepts, and become a more well-rounded competitor.

My name is Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert and I’ve been playing Counter-Strike for 18 years, with the last decade of my career playing competitively with top-level teams such as Evil Geniuses in CS 1.6 and Cloud9 for the majority of CS:GO. During my time as a pro I spent at least a few days a week coaching individuals playing CS:GO at various levels. After multiple years of individual coaching, I found that teaching the community as a whole via my Twitch streams and YouTube videos was more effective in reaching many more people. I’ve wanted to create a course like this for awhile and have a collection of tips and tricks learned over my decade of competitive experience to share with aspiring CS:GO players. My goal is to help shape how you view and play the game, and in the end create more well rounded players out of everyone who takes this course.

This course is built for players familiar with CS:GO who aspire to play at a higher level. I will help you master various skills by providing lectures, in-game examples, and practical tips that apply to each topic. Specifically, this course will cover:

*Intro sections include background on myself and my journey to pro, before jumping into the following*

  • Setting up CS:GO and finding the configuration that works for you

  • Mastering game mechanics, including:

    • Aiming

    • Crosshair placement

    • Recoil control

    • Grenade usage

    • Angles & positioning

    • Movement

  • Communicating effectively and efficiently during the three round phases, Solo Q and team play

  • Strategizing for early, mid, and late round play on both the CT and T side

  • Developing a process-oriented attitude to continually practice, improve your game, and avoid “ladder anxiety” as well as getting down on yourself

  • Utilizing offline servers to help practice outside “the game”

  • Utilizing community servers (DM, Retake, Surf/KZ)

  • Finding mentors and playing with/against better players

  • Approaching individual practice for maximum improvement

You’ll also get your hands dirty in-game by completing the activities and drills provided in each section. While the lectures will cover my best practices and key concepts for playing CS:GO, the activities will be your chance to apply what you’ve learned and find what works best for you.

I know that this course will help you not only fine-tune your skills in-game, but also to develop the professional attitude and practice-focused mindset that got me to where I am today. By the end of this course, you will be prepared for competitive play no matter what level you started at. If you’re ready to start the journey to high-level CS:GO, enroll in this course today. Let’s have some fun.

It’s really good for beginners and for experienced players, I’ve learned a lot and looking forward to try my best at becoming a pro someday.

Yes it was a very good match, and i am looking forward to seeing the rest of the course yes it was a great course, i've been a fan of Jordan for a long time and i have played this game for over a year now, but my game sense hasn't really gotten better.

Absolutely loved the content...looking forward to some more advanced courses !

Looking forward to the next course ...

Great course for beginner through advanced players looking to round out their game, looking forward to another course with more of the advanced tips.

Looking forward to getting into some meat.

counter strike in 12 reviews

It was a good match for me, I've hit a blockade with counter strike, saw this course by one of my favorite players on twitter and bought it.

I’m rewatching this course and I feel much better about my situation in Counter Strike This course really helps.

Honestly best comprehensive Counter Strike guide I've seen.

10/10 - Also my fist and table send their regards for helping them stop their sectarian conflict This is probably the best info I've ever received to play Counter Strike.

Overall this is the best guide for improving at Counter Strike that I have ever seen.

At the time of writing this I haven't finished the full course, I'm around 80% through however the core concepts and fundamentals of counter strike are not just explained one by one rather they are built up throughout.

I suck at counter strike.

In order to get better at CS:GO you need to put in a lot of practice and there are many things to think about, it's nice that he breaks these things down, and suggests other material to consume, even from other creators such as WarOwl.

Just as an example: Beginner-Level: getting your equipment and setup right -> find your personalized settings -> building mechanic skills and fundamental game knowledge -> build up map knowledge + get better at economy -> improve decisionmaking Advanced-Level: Movement -> play angles -> improve solo play -> improve as a team member (strats/rotations/...) -> ... Pro-/Expert-Level: how to improve and take the next steps, how to find/build good teams, how to get into the pro scene, tips at planning your carreer ... And based on that route one could explain how the course should help each viewer on that route to success.

Most people buying this course probably want to get better at the game and not neccessarily go pro.

something that i can focus on going into any game I thought this was just how to get better at the game.

I'm taking this course to get back up to my old rank in MM and get better at ESEA.

I have always been into CS:GO and have always wanted to get better at it.

interesting so far Nothing to complain about thus far Excited to see how the course progresses Very education and helps me a lot in understanding the topic love it ¬ he is cool If you want to get better at cs, take this course.

goes into in 8 reviews

I received a better understanding of what goes into pro play and how I can improve if wanted.

I love how n0thing goes into the mental aspects of the game instead of just the mechanical aspects which are often stressed in YouTube tutorials.

is very educational goes into depth about many things without dictating what you should do.

Was good to understand what goes into being a pro Because it was easy, simple and informative!

He goes into great details about his previous experiences and it helps others on how little things can be crucial I like the style, gets to the point and n0thing is one of my favorite players I appreciate knowing Jordan's backstory and the advice (even motivated me in my career fields), however, I was expecting to see some gameplay courses already.

Jordan has a very clear, concise way of explaining things and at an early stage of the course I can already tell it was well worth the money!

Its Dope This is definitely worth the money at this point, I’ve learned so many great things from this.

easy to understand in 7 reviews

I'm from Spain, and it's so easy to understand what's teaching to me.

But I felt that all the info provided was good, easy to understand, and can help a large majority of people who are thirsty for information but don't have a credible source of info.

The best n easy to understand :) Amazing how he goes into details on every single thing that will make you a better CS:GO player!

He explains things in such an easy to understand and easily relatable way.

Easy to understand.

I love CS and n0thing A lot of good information Great information and easy to understand I really liked it, I liked hearing how Jordan was able to come up as a pro :) i luv u n0thing Found my Sens In depth talk about the skills and fundamentals needed 私はセミプロを辞めたばかりでした。 そのチームがなぜすぐに終わってしまったのかがわかった気がしました。 I think its okuy til this point but i knew a lot a bout Jordan so its a lil boring Learning a lot.
