    It looks very rad indeed.

    I hope for a great new engine update mostly, since HL2 the source engine has gotten ebtter and better and hopefully CS2 will use fully dynamic lightning instead of limit 1 lightning like L4D.

    That was in my email to Gabe, I also told him that they should implement DX10 into the Source engine.

    Map-specific CT & T teams? :3
    Say, SAS for an "Iranian Embassy" styled Hostage Rescue?
    Call of Duty/Rainbow Six style attatchment options? (LAM, Extended mag, ACOG/Red Dot/Reflex scopes?

    Oooh, the ideas flowing through one's mind now at how awesome a PERFECT CounterTerrorism game could be O_O

    Oh. One more thing - maps need to be less linear.

    The original makers of CS when it was a mod were aiming at a stealthy urban area thing, like cs_backalley. A bit like what the SWAT games are.
    Those things I posted are things what I want in it next to what the plan for CS originally was.

    I think they should keep it the same way they have through 1.0, to 1.6, to CZ and Source. Because that clearly works for the community.
    What is your source for CS being about stealth?

    They're not going to change CS to make it a different game, they're going to keep it the same. A lot of that will be because of the competitive scene.

    Actually, I think they might substantially change the gameplay if they made CS2. Otherwise what would be the point? People would stay with CSS.

    Regardless of how much they change it people are going to stay with CSS. Infact if they change it a lot I think a lot more CSS players will stick to CSS.

    They did not change the gamplay in any of the other games and a lot of people still switched games.

    All the new players will get CS2 and most of the older players will just to try it out. It'll sell regardless of what they do to at least 2 million people pretty much straight away.

    The competitive scene might even be forced to switch by organisations looking at CS2, saying it looks prettier and wanting that on TV more than Source or 1.6.

    Dammit forgot to write about that, but Dx11 should it be as it's pretty much "the future which is near".

    I thought about that, but I skipped it. As I want the games as fast as possible, and DX11 is new to everyone, so they would probably have to remake lots of stuff.

    There is no word of a new engine by Valve yet, so I wouldn't assume that it would all be about new graphics. Because it would be called CS2, it doesn't imply that the gameplay has to be remotely similar. Besides, Valve has recently been trying new things--as proved with Portal and L4D (even though L4D wasn't originally their work)--and they would probably, if CS2 gets to be given a second chance, for I remember Valve mentioning that they didn't intend to release a new CS, implement different ideas. As you mentioned, CSS has a large competitive scene already so they wouldn't loose anything if they decided to release something new. On the other hand, I'm not sure people would take to CS2 if it were nothing but CSS with better graphics--especially after the bad repute Valve earned itself with L4D2.

    Counter-Strike 2 by far! I played it alot more than Portal. Portal was just a singleplayer game and when you complete it what are u gonna do then? Play it again? It gets boring. You can play CSS for ages and it doesn't get boring.

    From a business stance they would gain far more from making a CS2 game than portal 2 based on the sheer numbers in the player base. CS has quite the devoted following, if offered another game in the CS name they would surely purchase it as they've done in the move from 1.6 to source from before.

    So while Gabe might be more interested in a Portal 2 perhaps the money aspect will come into play in the end as we've seen with L4D2...

    Just my two cents,
