I love CS 1.6. Playing GO lately is fun when the game actually works, when its a buggy pile of shit then it isn't so much fun. I may be nostolgic, but there are a lot of players that get banned for not very good reasons or just get arbitrarily banned, but when Hiko or get_right does the same shit oh no thats ok they're famous no one can be that good if they aren't famous.
Take for example scout training.
Phoon (needs mention in every cs post ever)
and many many others. A lot of the old players, me included, like the old versions of CS we were good at. I'm not as good as these guys, but the tick issues drive me fucking insane and at that CSGO is, at this point, call er dooder. I try to play, but its pretty much the most pointless thing I do all day.
And trust me, if faceit would help me find my account I might be playing there but they don't really care and I'm not buying another account.
So where the hell are we now. No one is touching 1.6 anymore, Source is bhop the video game, and GO is just pizza for hackers. You could argue CS is just a left over game from the 90's, but I think it is a much needed thing in the gaming industry. If there was a way for us as the players to manage CS it would be 10X better, I garuntee. But because valve, I believe, really is an awful company and can't pull their fame out of their ass, they don't even listen to their audience and what is wrong with the game. So, we have faceit, ESEA, all that. Not enough.
"Well then go play something else you whiney bi-"
nooooooo nonononono sir. I have a better idea! ENTER CSCO.
Arguably, CSGO has a better engine than source does and 1.6. On paper it does things better though I will rather want 1.6 over everything else CS has forever basically. BUT, if you want to see why the old gods and old players would rather have the old games look at this mod for CSGO. Lots of wallbanging on the old maps that just have updated textures. Lots of maneuverability versus the fatass you play in CSGO who can't stop the happy meals (somehow I feel its an embodiment of gabe himself...). Its more like CS should be, a quake mod......
A quake mod. QUAKE SIR. Its not its own thing (is now, but not really). (srcgold is modded quake 3 engine, the game mechanics are similar, the game is a quake mod to me, kek).
As a fun side story, while the game was actually working the other day, playing CSGO became fun for 10 or 20 minutes. As it turns out, you can wallbang most of cache, a map I don't play very often. It was fun playing like I used to in 1.6 and being top score (36 kills, 10 bomb plants).
Then I got 2 reports at the end so even more kek.
