I know the original Beta T had hitbox issues, but the others were fine, right? Personally, I liked the original CT better than the one they have now. Sure, it's not as detailed, but that's what reskins are for! Anyone know why they changed it? They haven't done this for any other skins.

    The hitboxes aren't because of the model, because if you saw the hitbox videos the whole set of hitboxes were no where near the model itself. You'd be around the corner, but becasue the hitboxes were lagging around and you'd still get hit.

    It looks better and has more details i think, and i think the newer models look better.

    I know, I meant that the T's neck was arched little too low, or something like that.

    Yeah, if it was just for detail, why not a reskin? It seems unlike Valve to remake the entire model just because it looks a little old.

    If you think about it, what would the other models look like now if they were to keep that old model? If they did keep that model, then the the other cts and ts would look waaaaaaay off if the models are meant to be of the same quality, so then the other models might've looked well... hunchbacked. Though I loved the old CT better, looked like a real ct, now they look like cyber nutz...
