    Holy ****, I finally found it again. Sorted the maps by "Best rating", of course de_boston is one of the first. I remember playing this map, liked it very much, one of my favourite costum maps, oh man the memories. It was all good 7-8 years ago. Before CS:GO was released.

    This is one of my favorite defuse maps in CSS, I hope you'll port it to Global Offensive, and maybe we'll have the awesome surprise to find it in the next operation!
