Hey so I noticed we don't have an official CS:GO community thread at least not one that keeps people up to date and the neogaf community can share friend codes. So here it is.
Please share the sick gifs and clutch videos and talk about the best players (S1mple is the best) as well make sure to post patch notes and the latest and greatest.

I just recently got back into CSGO and am now Silver 3. But I have ages of tactical experience playing on minor ESL clan on CSS days and in general always analysing the way the enemy plays.

CS:S will always have a special place in my heart lol, used to play it with friends like a madman in internet cafes. Still like to boot it up from time to time.

i quit some time after 1.6, played from alpha on

source sucked and go in its early iteration did too, i might give it another shot soon but tbh, i feel like the game is just too damn easy and fpses have significantly outpaced it with better mobility and athleticism

it's still a good stepping stone for scrubs tho, shame quake sucks

I hate playing with people who don't know the importance of good smokes. Lost a game today where I was carrying my team. And then it all fell apart.

Think there'd ever be a chance they'd add a classic mode to CSGO? Like with Source physics, hitscan, and animations?

Somehow I doubt they'd go out of their way to add those, as a really small minority would want that. Those that want that will play the older games.

Play the classic 1.6 map on casual every other round! Happy anniversary. I played CS 18 of its 20 years :)

Two Decades of Counter-Strike
2019.06.18 -

Twenty years ago, a humble Half-Life mod changed the gaming world. Constantly evolving and shifting over the years, Counter-Strike has never lost its fundamentals: it’s easy to learn, takes a lifetime to master, and is supported by a massive global community.
You can celebrate the history of CS with a retro version of Dust II, currently available in the Casual Dust II map group. There’s also a new sticker capsule featuring the unsung heroes of CS – chickens!
