Your opinion

Hey guys. One of the biggest features about 1.6 that I miss in Source is the tactical shield, and I can't figure out why Valve didnt put it in. I understand that it's unlikely that they will add it, and I'm not interested in starting an argument about the pros and cons of having it, but I'm just curious how many people actually want this. Submit ur opinion on the poll. Thanks.

    I can understand that, but it also added a whole new level to gamplay. Also I think it would've worked better in Source because if an admin didnt want it, then they could use mani to restrict it. (Is there a plugin in 1.6 that restricts weapons?)

    I think CS:S is a great game, but it definitely lost a lot of the gameplay elements from CS 1.6. I'd be all for the tactical shield.

    Would be a good idea Ekic, its a bit like rainbow 6: Vegas. Plus it would also need to go with each side, like CT's have laser points etc, while T's some of the same things and have some of their own aswell

    I thought of adding gadgets and attachments for weapons rather than new weapons, like a 9th menu in the buy menu. That would contain things like diferent kinds of aimpoints, triicon, acog etc. And maybe LAM, vert grip, tac mags and such stuff.

    The shield would be good if they made you able to shot through it, a metal shield that blanc stops a bullet isnt realistic in that way...


    Nicer ideas. We should try and get the whole community it forward them to Valve haha.

    Yeah, like Socom 3 and stuff. Adding scopes, silencers, etc would be a great idea. Adds more dimension to the game. I was all for the shield. I would use it to be an entry force in smaller maps while other people were behind me, etc.

    We need shield bashing. That would totally make my day. Go up to someone and bash them in the face with the shield. Oh man that would be so broken, unless there was a key to grab the shield and shove it aside!

    A normal admin wont have the power to remove it off the server completely, whoever has ftp access to the server will be able to edit the server config to permantly disable it, if this was actually done by Vavle.

    If they put it in Source, i think they should restrict it to only 1-2 people can have it on the team.

    Personally i hated it.

    The reason it wasn't put in because almopst every server had it disabled. I think attachments would be better although it won't happen.

    They would need to balance it out by adding something to the terrorist. Having 1-2 people using it may be a good idea but would that mean that it is first come first serve? if so that would be infair.

    It would totally change the way people play each map so I think it would change the game too much and therefore won't be added.

    Personally i think it would be cool if you could only use shields on hostage situation maps, and terrors could take the hostages in hand to even it out, i mean come on, terrors gets scared seeing CTs with shields but imagine the hesitated shots from CTs if the terror was holding a hostage /:)

    its be like a real hostage situation, the CTs would actually have to aim for the head and if they miss....
