Here’s the solution for:
Getting a high ping for several minutes after pressing “ESC”.
Simply the ping spike caused by pausing the game.
- Head to this file location:
- Right click the hosts file then open it with Notepad++ – [notepad-plus-plus.org]
- Place this line here like shown(yes 2 gaps) “127.0.0.1 blog.counter-strike.net” – 
You can just copy the code from the 19th line then replace “local host” with the cs blog.
Then make sure to save!
- You will be faced with a save failed. Just press yes then press save again!
How to tell if the fix worked without having to enter a match?
Simply just try to open the website itself https://blog.counter-strike.net – [counter-strike.net]
You should face a “This site cannot be reached” and you’re completely done!
Or in game by checking whether the “News feed” is just blank without updates and such like shown
