Re: Counter Strike: Global Offensive

I get nostalgic just thinking about the good old days of CS 1.6

Call of Duty, Battlefield, Halo, etc., just don't do it for me like CS 1.6 did back in the day

They also have awards for people and teams that do well in non-league play. I believe you may be able to find scrims "off-client", but I have no idea how or where to even begin looking for those types of scrims. I tend to avoid off-client scrims because of cheaters (ESEA anti-cheat software is the best in counter-strike).
ESEA still exists? Lol

Nope, early 2012 is probably out the window. Most optimistic at this point is early summer.

Re: Counter Strike: Global Offensive

Does anyone know where you can watch full counter strike pro matches? The only place I have found is youtube, and often the quality isn't so great. Thanks!

Re: Counter Strike: Global Offensive

oh wow, gotfrag, what a blast from the past. Not surprised that site is basically dead now.

Justin.tv has streams of pro LANs every once in a while, but you need to know when the tourneys are occurring to pick up on them. hltv.org tends to know when they are though, and has great coverage of the euro scene, which is really all that's left.

Re: Counter Strike: Global Offensive

readmore.de has ton of POV demos, but you have to register to download them and it's in german.

i wish they would make 1.1 or 1.3 with modern graphics. i know, it will never happen, but a man can have a dream.

fwiw you don't need to watch pro matches (and I wouldn't recommend watching a pro match) to get a feel for the game. They do things that wouldn't be considered "standard". Very much like the poker world, these guys have played each other countless times so they do crazy and "stupid" things to throw each other off. In CS you can have people playing at the lowest league level but they are some of the top notch level players. You can also have mediocre (relatively) "pro" teams that don't win a match throughout the entire 3 month season.

There are many talented players that play this game, but its the teamwork and chemistry between 5 guys that distinguish the good teams from the great ones.

Re: Counter Strike: Global Offensive

heh i used to play css super competitively all throughout highschool; played cevo main and cal way back in the day. was also a constant esea pugger (i think i changed my sn in esea to isildur1 or something before i quit). when esea had a skill system i held top skill for a long period of time with a sick fpr/adr/kdr, i was one of the few people to reach and maintain ~2100+ skill for a long time which was just absurd at the time.

im unsure of how to get a beta key for cs:go so if anyone wants to hook me up with a key id be willing to trade for stars $$.
