By Gairik Ray September 25, September 24, So a server with a tick rate will be updating the information twice as fast, and there will be no loss of visual information when a lot of things are happening at the same time around the map. The game-play on a tick server feels a lot smoother compared to a 64 tick server. But all official matchmaking CSGO servers are of 64 tick server. Moreover the number of ticks in a server also affects the weapon accuracy in the game.
How to start CSGO in 128 tick mode without FACEIT or ESEA
All multiplayer games have a tick rate system which acts as the communication between the client PC and the server the match is hosted on. The default CS:GO servers that you connect to via the lobby are usually hosted by Valve and run at the standard 64 tick rate. Players have the choice to join a dedicated Valve server or host their own that they can choose to be either 64 or ticks. Tick rates become important as your CS:GO skills improve as your matchmaking will become more competitive.
Players' frustration with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive's slow servers might soon come to and end. CSGO currently runs on tick servers, meaning that all of the action on a player's screen might not really match what the server says it is. A faster server takes more snapshots of what's going on in game compared to slower ones, and that's why CSGO's player base wants those faster servers.
