    Anyone here play Counterstrike 1.6?

    I've been playing for about a year and a half, and it' s a ton of fun. I play for about an hour a night or so (depending on how many others are online).

    I'm a member of [AiF] and I pretty much only play in my clans public server.

    Where do you guys play?

    I played counterstrike a few years ago. I'm surprised it's still played given its age.

    I play CS Source every once in awhile. I don't play 1.6 because I don't like when the grayish-brownish pixel on the other end of the map can somehow get a head shot on me. In Source, I can at least see what the hell I'm aiming at.

    I think people like 1.6 b/c it runs on like anything. I love it b/c there are still tons of people out there playing.

    I play Source. Though I shouldn't because I flip out when people kill me. I hate not getting a 3.0 k/d ratio.

    I used to play all the time, until the haxxors drove me away.

    Then I played with CS Source, but HL2 and CSS didn't work properly after I installed Norton.

    Then when I wanted to reopen my Steam account, it wouldn't let me use my previous account (even though I reset the password and used their reactivation code) and couldn't open a new account using the game that was already in use with the previous account.

    Which is why I haven't bought a PC game since then.

    I think that's more to do with Steam being a pile of crap than PC games in general. We had regular CS matches in class last semester.

    I play both cs 1.6 and CSS. Which servers do you play CSS on? I usually play on any of the 40+ man servers. I am having trouble with 1.6 tho, really laggy gameplay but then it might be my vid card tho.

    I recently got back into CS:Source but I will play 1.6 if I really want to use the shield vs campers and awpers

    I never got to see the shield, but I cant imagine how odd it must make the game. Does it really change much, or is it just a novelty add-on?

    Well, it can be useful if you're leading an assault, but you have to depend on anybody on your team behind you to do all the shooting. Slows you down, but can stop most rounds, if I recall correctly.

    The shield will stop awp rounds point blank which is good but due to collision detection issues you can sometimes be shot through the shield if you're in melee range with your enemy
