Comment Re:Playing right into the polar bears' paws (Score 2) 84

There's a funny story from the scientists about a beached whale that they discovered a while back.

The polar bears that found it did not touch it. They seemingly had no interest in a fresh carcass. It was left alone and started rotting away. After three years it had reached peak rotten, and all the polar bears started eating it up really fast.

It proves that even polar bears are connoisseurs when it comes to food, so this idea that they are waiting for the perfect moment is not so far away from the truth.

Comment Re:Cheating at Tournaments (Score 3, Interesting) 105

I must admit I still play the CS:GO regularly.

I have also played with and against cheaters quite regularly and have been told through the in-game menu that players I have played with in previous matches have been permanently banned for cheating and had my match statistics readjusted to reflect that, as it seems matches with cheaters get voided.

It's really annoying, and especially when it gets really evident like when you sneak towards a corner making no sounds and the guy around just knows you are getting close and starts prefiring. This happens way more often than it should, and reporting users seems not to work.
