Jacob explains the importance of playing for your team, and not playing for yourself. Counter-Strike: GO is a team-based game, and the team can only be as strong as its weakest link. It is, therefore, crucial to establish a balance between different types of players on the team. Jacob further explains the specific roles played within a team: The Lurker: The role of the lurker is to gather information about the enemy movement via sounds and relay it to the team. Lurker players act as lone wolves and detach themselves from the group. Lurkers usually sit in corners or sneak up from behind from unexpected angles. The Support: The role is to be the second person entering through a choke point and getting the return kill. A support player usually has flashbangs, smokes and is, in general, a very important asset to the team. In-Game Leader: The ‘brain’ and usually captain of the team. The leader is the person who can read the game and adjust the team and strategies accordingly. A strat caller is a player who has had time with the game and who understands timings, positioning and rotations incredibly well. The Sniper: The job of the sniper is to win ranged battles. A sniper should have amazing reflex and can hit opponents through the tightest of angles. The sniper can inflict colossal damage onto the opposing team and this can be especially crucial if the sniper manages to get an early pick. Entry-Fragger: The entry fragger is arguably the most important role especially for the terrorists as this player will open up the scoreboard and round with an important first kill. A player that is classified as an entry fragger has very good crosshair placement, recoil control and generally the most aggressive player on the team.
