Yeah, they're 100% OEM haha.

You can buy an official copy and link it to your Microsoft account so it will carry over for most hardware changes. I think the only changes that might not carry over are would be if you change your motherboard.

OEM keys are way cheaper. Also, I would never link an account to my machine.

OEM keys are way cheaper, but if he’s changing his hardware frequently then it might be worth it so he doesn’t have to buy new ones all the time.

And your Windows is bound to a Windows account. That’s just how it works. The difference being with a full, non-OEM key it will let you change hardware and keep the same copy of Windows since it’s linked to your account.

Anyone try the new Nvidia upscaling thing? I personally hate it, makes faces look so uncanny but maybe with enough machine learning our data issues will all be solved with upscaling

I’ve never been a huge fan, but it looks the exact same to me with some improvements, haha. Pardon my ignorance.

They greatly improved the netcode and made some big changes to utility items like smoke grenades and molatovs.

I think the smoke grenade thing is dumb but it will certainly speed matches up if that's what they wanted

Counter Strike players are certainly a breed apart.

I have mixed feelings on being able to clear smokes with nades and shooting, but the new smoke fixes one way smokes, which were bs.

To be fair, watching CS competitively when it's a smoke fest and you pretty much just have to sit their a wait for it to clear kinda sucks.

The no server tick rate thing seems kinda crazy. Hoping this technology makes it to other games too.

I mean, it's pretty damn good. This is coming from someone who didn't like Diablo 3 at all too.

World tier? Not in the beta, no. But in the actual game, yes.
