I've recently come to realize that I customize CS:S a LOT more than I play it now-a-days. I also find myself lurking around the forums and submissions. Does anyone else find that they lurk and customize more than they play?

    Yes. Especially seeing as my PC fails to run CS: S smoothly anymore!

    I lurk the forums more than I play sometimes. I don't customize my CSS much. I have some pals like Timmy do model hacks for me sometimes in exchange for...stuff.

    I haven't played CSS in months. I enjoy making compiles for it instead of actually playing it and enjoying my compiles, or the work of others.

    But I do play occasionally with friends in passworded servers etc.

    I mean, I used to be CAL good, and I've gotten a lot worse since I came here and started doing customizations and lurkying around here on the forums. I have come to conclude that FPSB is bad for me and that I need to game more.

    I used to post alot more on FPSB. To where I made 500 or so posts in like...16 or so days, after that I slowed down and played more CSS. I got extremely good. I remember on dust, I was a T and I was camping the right side, and some CTs came and ambushed me on the left and I killed 4 of them that were all attacking me at the same time using my 552, then I killed 2 others that round. I slowed down again recently and started posting on forums. I need to get a balance between the two. X_X

    I remember one time when I was just sat in the forum refreshing, after completely re-skinning my CSS (downloads, not making) and thinking, OMG, why arn't I playing CS?

    I haven't played css or any games in days because my graphic card crashes all the time. I only sits in my chair and wait in the forums or customize my css so much that I have to delete other things.

    Maybe I'm a customize addict. I think I need to go to AC (anonymous customizers).

    I customize CS:S alot, but I always play enough to stay the same skill etc. as I was / still am. And I don't always customize and in weekends I play alot. Because of school and my work I don't have much time to play CS:S so I customize.

    Hell, I spend more time making skins and sprays for Natural Selection (HL1 Mod) more than anything. I've tried mapping, but the stupid commander access of the map I screw up on, and I can't find any tuts.

    I rarely play anymore, life has finally caught up with me. But that little time I do spend playing is mostly used for testing that new skin I just downloaded. =)
