This Topic is for people whod like to suggest maps or ideas and for mappers to put there input and maps into here for suggestions for servers this is not an official club for mapping meaning that this isn't the official form but this is for people to put there maps to be test by the player based and improved.
Single core performance of 5050X is massively improved over 3950X. Particularly the issue with 3950X is the cache. Of course when we first crowd funded the 3950X it was the best CPU available. 5950X has been released and thus is the superior option. It also stays on the AM4 socket so we only need the CPU, we don't have to change anything else.

The progression of CPU tech is one of those things that you could always try to hold off for the better CPU but then you'd be holding off forever. Since the better CPU is always going to be available within the next year.
I personally prefer an AK47 in most situations. This is mainly because I use it more in comp and am better at controlling its recoil than the M4. It also kills unarmored Ts with 3 body shots so the slower rate of fire actually does not mean a slower time to kill. Using less bullets is relevant as I will often use the majority of my ammo in a full round.
I use an M4 on CT mainly so I can have a real skin to track stattrak with (you cannot use real AK skins on CT with how JB works right now).
I switch to the AWP/scout (from their main cell spawns) if I know there is a gun in stack as I will be going for risky headshots. Also if I know its an admin room round I grab an AWP in armory to go for the wallbangs.
As for pistols I think I've decided that the elites are the best. The only time I use a pistol is if I'm out of ammo in my rifle, and that usually happens when dealing with multiple rebelling ts. This is almost always at close range and the ammo capacity is the biggest necessity at that point. Also if I'm bored it lets me draw on the walls or make gunshot music.
Realistically all the other guns are better in such small niche scenarios that they aren't worth equipping. There's no economy in JB so just use AK/Elite every round if you care about actual effectiveness.
JB is about fun, and while I enjoy hunting and killing rebels that doesn't mean anyone else has to. Play with whatever gun you find the most enjoyable, I use an M4 just for a shiny skin/number even though I think it's worse than the AK. Some people enjoy playing with non-optimal guns and I think you could make a whole other Tier-list about the meme value of every gun.
