    they are updating counter strike source to what the CSS beta was. This truly killed the competitive community and i think gave away to the pub stars and the achievement whores.

    Post what you think about the new update!

    I played CSS hardcore for about a year... a few years back. I haven't thought about it since. Is (heh, or "was"... with this new patch going into play) the CSS scene still strong?

    The beta had TERRIBLE hitboxes and reg. TERRRRRRRRiible. I really hope they fixed it. The the beta was totally unnecessary. This is too.

    yes there are still many players but this probably cuts the number by half. I know at least 5 people that uninstalled CSS.

    nope, every server has to update to this source so almost every server is unusable at this point.

    What does a server have to do with a map having certain properties to allow surfing?

    Plus there must be atleast one or two up, and if there isn't I can just host my own.

    CSS is now dead to me.

    I downloaded the near 900mb patch.
    Went to find a server, and what did I see with my filters? (no password, not full, not empty, secure)
    70 servers!

    I suppose they haven't updated them all, or don't want to.

    So I attempt to play and I was sickened by the gameplay, r.i.p. CSS, you will be missed.

    How can the gameplay be that different? It's still the same game but using an updated engine.

    Plus my game only updated an hour or so ago, so it'll take servers even longer.

    Feels bloated, I hate the new menus, the shapes changed, and the hit boxes are different.

    It feels exactly the same to me, if not better. You people are just so used to playing your dated FPS.

    And who cares if the menus are different? All that changed is the new achievement menu.

    The hitboxes when CSS first came out were terrible. Heck, can't be that bad now, and if they're that bad surely there will be a fix.

    Also why I stuck to 1.6 over CSS.

    well bhop is kinda gone since 100 ticks are gone, every server is now 66 tick.

    And the menus are just plain annoying and ugly. Can't wait to scrim with freeze cam on -_-
