Got in the beta last week, I'm enjoying it a lot. Anyone else been playing?
Mara
I'd like to try this as well. I didn't get in the beta unfortunately. Mashley, would I enjoy that game? (I have played 1.6, CZ, CSS, even the Xbox version)

It's simply a slightly different version of source with a few changes. I'm still undecided as to getting it.
Mara
I heard the way guns work are more like 1.6 rather than Source.

The game right now is terrible, the mechanics are very odd and it doesn't feel like CS/ CS:S at all. The graphics are pretty awesome, but like someone else in the thread says, it looks more like BF3.

I was praying they wouldn't follow the "ZOMG AWESOME GRAPHICS BUT NOTHING ELSE" bandwagon that's invaded game development in recent years. I think I'll just revisit 1.6 occasionally.

I guess? I can't speak for how it compares to other versions of CS, but I am enjoying it at lot.

Bump. The release is soon. Some professional CS players have already tested it and the conclusion is: CS:GO isn't even remotely as awesome as CS 1.6.

After playing CS 1.6 for 6 years I still can't say I will give it up anytime soon and certainly not going to switch to CS:GO, but it's sad that 1.6 will not be played on any major tournaments pretty soon :(

Anyone of you have a mix they can play with? PM me if you do to play against me and my buddies. 5x5 ofc :D

Not mentioning the fact CS series have the lowest teamplay factor among all shooters I've ever played (Enemy Territory, anyone?). I'm surprised that anyone outside poor eastern Europe actually plays this thing.
I have a feeling you've only played on public servers, huh? Obviously you don't need teamplay on public, but on mix / cups / lans teamplay is like 65% teamplay and 35% skill, where communication between your teammates is absulutely vital, and that's what made this game so popular and that's why it's still being played for over 10 years. It's much like chess where you have to think way ahead of your opponent and read the game carefully, the better tactic you have, the better your chances are. And no, it's not only eastern europe, Sweden, Finland, Russia, Ukraine, Denmark, Norway, Germany and Poland are the major players. It's pretty much dead in USA though, but in eurupe it's fully living and gathering tens of thousands of viewers on cup streams. Know your facts

Also, teamplay matters a lot:

It is, in fact, pretty much alive in South America. A lot of non-steam servers with a very good connection (since they are paid). I have been playing from the start of 1.5 and then 1.6. CS is the classic of the classic. I still play it, but retired from mix/closed, and just pub. The time will tell if GO will be the replacement of CS 1.6.

EDIT: Screw with those shitty maps and mods aka surf, kz, zombie mode, etc.

CS:GO looks too much like CoD for me to take it seriously :P
I really wish CS Promod went huge like I thought it would.

I wish I could, but I don't have any mates to play with. :(

And it's been too many years since I played 1.6 last time.

Why is the thread title wrong? It's Offensive, not Offense.

^Doesn't really matter though.

Had this game for a while now.

I've also been playing 1.6 for a long, long, long time...

Anyway, first thought:
Everything got an upgrade, visuals, everything.

But to be honest, I can't really tell what, but something, SOME ESSENCE of 1.6, is missing. AND I CAN'T TELL WHAT IT IS!!!
However, I like how they added in popular CS custom mods like Gungame, one of my favourites.

Next is war3 mods and stuff (100% custom though)

I will surely buy it.

I still thinks 1.6 is better than this,
though.

I'm helping Valve by translating video games like Dota 2, CSS etc. and Steam at the translation server.
I obviously need to get the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Beta if I have to translate that game too
into my own language, which is Norwegian.
Second... what's your steam skin?
