When I first Player Source as a Beta I Thought wow this game is really going to be cool. Since the game has come out it has lived up to just that being 'cool'. This Game unlike the 1.3 to 1.4 or 1.5 to 1.6 is different. This game takes it to the next level. This could be taken as good or bad. Good - Because You can interact with the enviroment bad - because you can interact with the enviroment. In all the prior Counter-Strikes you know who was god because they just rocked you face. Now there are just too many varialbles. "Dude did that guy just rol the tire down the hill? look!" *HeadShot* I mean really how complicated can a game be a still be fun? Can anyone imagine someone like Aimetti or No0dLe playing cal matches on Source? But thats just my opinion ... I could be wrong

    Personally I think CS:S has changed for the better. Most players dont like the changes and some cant even play the game on thier computer w/o upgrading. I personally like the game due to the fact of the physics, ragdoll, etc... The one thing I think they need to fix is the barrells. You cant stand on them and you can get stuck if you land in between them. I am an old skool CS player and I have pretty much played Source more than 1.6. And no I do not play every waking minute of the day like some people I know, I do have a life away from my computer. I play when ever I get the chance and "n00bs" still dont have an equal chance in Source when whomever compared Source to 1.6. Flashbangs, nades, and smoke nades are way better and the equality of the weapons are a plus.

    The way I see it, dont play Source if you dont like. Those of us out there who do play Source are not twisting your arms.

    I propose that we rid the world of the word 1337, because can u really become any more of a nerd bomb?


    :rofl: HAHAHAH so true man so true... i get so tired of people who live off of cs and don't really have a life... CS is a GAME--have fun! Being overly good isn't a big deal--nobody in the real world really cares. U can't pick up chicks by sayin "Hey baby, I'm 1337. Wanna get busy?" I mean seriously... Livestrong, have fun, get drunk, crash.

    But as for CS:S from wut i've seen it's like what smurfty said--the changes are all cosmetic... rolling a tire down a hill doesnt really help (except for the fact that u just gave away your position). :roll:

    I wouldn't say u could "interact" with the objects in css cus they don't change the gameplay one bit and that's not the big thing with css, other than the longer loading times the game is great with it's new graphics (blah blah blah we've heard that a thousand times) and the new balances to the weapons which makes the for years non-useable weapons like the shotty and tmp actually useable

    I second that notion. Not only the word 1337, but leet speak as a whole should be banished. Oh well, a guy can dream can't he?

    CS : S itself is a great game, but so many bugs and problems it almost makes me puke. They aren't huge, but little things here and there, plus a final release of CS with only 1 set of character models......whatever. Plus it can be really dark at times, but i guess thats mostly the non-official maps that people have little experience working with the new system. The sounds weren't all upgraded, a lot of the guns sound just the same which really dissapoint me. but its fun, other than those problems the only thing that bugs me is when you run into a barrel or something of that nature you get this rubber bounce effect, and i have been pinned in corners and couldn't move. But i guess thats the dissadvantage of the port, CS2 won't have that issue i'm sure.

    I didn't get into the original CS, but I love CS:S. Easier headshots help the n00bs a bit, but veterans will always do better - knowledge of map, tactics, AWP whoring, early round glock rushes, the concept of teamwork...

    I also heard that players who bought the retail CD lag more than those players who d/led off Steam. Is this true?

    The game lived up to my expectations. Even though in the beginning you will feel like everythings different and it IS different. But when you get used to it its pretty much the same as the old cs. Expect this one is way better and funnier. I'm getting the hang of this cs source feeling and i'm pretty much owning the place right now. Getting more than 4 kills every round, and yes you are right when you get owned by a noob who sprayed you to death or got a lucky headshot. But when you really get used the recoil, physics and movements of cs source the noobs don't stand a chance.

    From what I've played at my friends house (a friend with a non-source friendly Nvidia card, mind you) I still think the game rocks just as much as the good ol CS, and then some. What more could we ask for? (Excluding more game types, remade maps, etc....;))

    CSS takes a large amount away from the challenge of the game. I still like it, but the game is a lot easier. You really cant be better then anyone else unless your helen keller.

    Worth The Hype? Deffinatally
    This is like counterstrike1.6X10! I love everything about it! The environments are beautifiull, and the interactivity is almost endless. The Havock And Ragdoll physics engines work wonders in the realizm of this game. My only problem with it are the hitboxes, theyre less percise than the ones on CS1.6 For anyone that liked the first Counterstrike, i really recomend picking this one up.

    Yea but no one has been playing CS:S for 3 years. CS:S is a new game there are a few diffrences between CS vanilla and CS source. Number 1 is the sound is a lot better. The graphics don't really matter to me. Even though they are a nice addition.

    Besides even in CS:S the skilled person isn't going to get raped by a 9 yr old who doesn't know how to play. Most n00bs don't even know CS requires burst fire instead of spray and pray. Instead the 9 yr old resorts to tking, because that is the only way he can kill someone. Making the game so 133t will only result in a frustation for the new player, then he will look for ways to ruin the game.

    I do think they need to fix the netcode on hl2dm and Cstrike: source. Even on cable the lag is bad. I got 95 ping and the game acts like I got 250.

    I say all the changes are good. It is easier for a n00b to kill someone. Now fucks can't go 20 to 1 and laugh so hard it isn't funny. In a game like dod even a unskilled person can kill a expert, this is very good. Now 9 times out of 10 the expert is going to blow away the n00b, but at least stupid people who target n00bs ain't going to think they are so 133t when the n00b actaully kills them.

    CS Source makes using cover a lot better than in CS 1.6 . If you got a fast enough computer there really isn't any reason not to switch. Most of the major maps are back in a unofficial map pack.
