Originally posted by Captain Bort Bortson TFC was extremely fun. I think id still be playing if Pigflipper never told me about this new fangled mod called CS 2.0. TFC got old when they added the new skins and came out with all those lame siege the base that nobody wants to siege and serves for those little emp grenade engineer whores to get cheap kills and boost their self-esteem. But if whoever started this thread, too lazy to scroll up, wants to start a clan, id join once i get back to college and extreme bandwidth.
Originally posted by kanezfan I don't understand the CS obsession. I've tried to get into it several times, but each time i've come away with a feeling of wtf?
Originally posted by Sleepstalker The fact that so many people still play cs boggles my mind. There are so many other good team oriented games now: Tactical Ops, Medal of Honor, Enemy Territory, etc...
/me is scared of his girlfriend...
TFC got old the 2nd day :o
CS2 will be on Valve's source engine
I think someone is a tad bitter!
Btw- you really should try it before you knock it because Neo-TF encourages teamplay much, much, more than does the regular TFC. In Neo-TF, if you want to use any decent weapons you need your teamates to help you out to build and upgrade weapon systems. In some cases 2-3 people need to cooperate to use the weapon system, mortars, multiguns and SAM's for example.
Did you start trying it during the betas? The community has really went to shit ever since 1.0 (retail). Think of it like this... during the early beta days 1999 - Aug. 2000 the CS community was as friendly and honest as the Icrontic community. Lots of teamwork, very very small amount of cheaters, mature players (would be very rare to see anyone under 17 playing... or at least they didn't act it if they were).
The community is really what hooked me to the game. I loved the updates, only useful things were added. Now everything that is added has to go through VALVe (big company) and be approved, so the only new features the game ends up getting are really gimmicky ones.
Unless you're a very good player, I can understand why playing in public servers isn't fun. If you belong to a clan though, playing competitively where everything is very organized and you can't survive without teamwork is still fun.
The only thing really keeping me playing it for the past year and a half is that I became part of a small community that admins a CS server. Basically, i'm the guy who does all the technical work installing and updating software, anti-cheat work, coding plugins, etc. This also means though the server environment can easily be moderated, no one is going to ruin my game acting like a dick because they'd be banned the first few seconds they tried. I shudder to think about playing CS outside of that server. If you don't believe me, here's proof: *shudders*
IMO, the future now lies in the HL2 mods created by small independent teams, though that's probably pretty obvious to a lot of people.
Enemy Territory is standalone and %100 free. Why just shoot when you can plant landmines, call down airstrikes, or be covert ops and take the opposing teams uniform?
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with still playing counter-strike. I'm just surprised so many people still play it.
i cant play any other games though, which is why i hate cs more.yet, at the same time i think its quite a fun game, with the exception of the BS hackers....
But none match the "fun" gameplay CS has, the perfect mix of realism and arcade gameplay i guess.
Dont have wolfenstien, but ET is good, and well worth the download.
But now - Grenades
but cs, is just this weird gameplay that you cant really get anywhere else. its fast, yet slow, and very very very strategical (if you play like i do). its th only game ive ever held onto, and ive been gaming since 3 yrs old.
i give many other games a chance, hell i own a lot of games, most of them are installed, i just never get to finishing them. ive alwasy wanted to finish splinter cell, and wanted to start on raven shield.
i had fun with ut2k3, but i messed up the way i played cs for awhile. cs is almost like a sport to me, its like practicing hard for baseball, and then trying to balance golf football and basketball on the side. you cant do them all, even though theyre all really fun.
i just love FPS, and hate hackers, and 1.6 could be the final decision for me, wheter i like cs or not. we'll see.
We had a blast. Made it into STA-CSX Gold (Highly Regarded Invite League back then) and promptly had Playnet go Chapter XI on us. It was a blast, but after having found FireArmsMod for HL (http://www.firearmsmod.com) I just can't go back. I tried last night, at one of my regular hang-outs of lore... It just isn't the same, there's no strategy to CS.
I've caught flak for saying that, but CS is about a group of ~12 people who spawn with one objective, and promptly fall to pieces.
[KBK] -- Kill or Be Killed. Pigflipper can tell you about all the crap I used to make, especially for him. [Fx] is still around last I recalled.
Anyway, make it No BS-CS. There's no room in CS for asshole, homophobes, racists, or idiots. Ban those who make it less fun, and I dare someone to come close the 6 original Icrontic Admins on [KBK] 1500 bans in 5 months. (We did nearly have an admin on at all times, and OGC had *just* been popularized)
Anyway, I'm rambling, try FA, enjoy it, love it, find how empty CS is without your m60, marksmanship 1, an m3, and the ability to go prone. Then see if you can still stand for CS.

Tactics, you get less lame idiots playing where there are no respawn points, die and you may as well leave as the others are going to go on and complete this 3 hour mission.
I'm just bored of playing games where people are just charging and shoting, dying, respawning, running, dying, respawing.... etc etc, try a few tactics for once.
I still play CS, but not in any gaming leagues and I only play on two servers. I am now playing DoD more than CS, but thats because I am on one of the Fx DoD squads. But having played CS for over four years now, I have seen many changes in the game over the years for better or for worse, but the spirit of the game has stayed the same.
