In this episode, glace teaches you how to read your opponents. This might sound very simple to many, and a lot of people rely on their in-game leader to do so, but the fact is that everyone on the team can contribute. Reading your opponents is about analyzing their tendencies and tells on the map such as whether they repeat the same smokes and patterns. Reading your opponents applies for every map, and is most evident in the “default tactic” as teams usually have the same people throwing the same grenades for particular tactics. Learning how to read your opponents lets you explore openings in their strategies that you can use to get kills and punish them. Your objective is not only to get kills but to delay them with your utility and force them to change their strategies. This applies to both Counter-Terrorist and Terrorist, and it’s all about learning how your opponent plays and thinking of methods where you can exploit their gameplay.
