Why are you still playing CS:S?

I don't want to start a flamewar or something I really just want to hear the reason why you are still playing CS:S because I never played it again since the release of CS:GO. In my opinion CS:GO improved nearly everything. I loved playing CS:S but I love playing CS:GO even more.
I don't get how there are still more people playing CS:S than CS:GO. So please tell me your reason. ;)

My reason: zombie escape, and minigames.

I didn't play FFA, since some month, i'm bored by it.
Becke Mar 3, 2013 @ 2:29pm 
You can play both also in CS:GO. The only problem is that there not enough servers which such maps are running on. But if there were more players there also would be more servers...
But yeah thats an good reason.
Sry for asking but zombie mod? I just tried it once and it was very unbalanced and therefore not fun at all. Have I just choosen the wrong server?
Deathroll Mar 3, 2013 @ 2:54pm 
Yes I think you just choosen the wrong server because 90% of them are unbalanced. I think one of the main reasons why people keep playing CS:S are the mods. And yes you can play these mods in CS:GO too but they aren't as good as in CS:S. CS:GO is good for FFA but otherwise not in my opinion.

sorry for my bad english :/

Naja eig können wir uns auch auf Deutsch unterhalten. ;)
Irgendwie kann ich das mit den Mods nicht ganz nachvollziehen. So viel anders ist GO ja nicht als Source. Ich meine es benutzt ja genauso das Sourceengine. Von daher denke ich, dass es aktuell eher an dem Mangel an Spielern liegt und nicht an GO selbst. Ich habe selbs in CS:S ganz gerne mal auf nem surf oder mg server gespielt. In GO funktionieren die Maps genauso gut nur gibt es halt wie gesagt extrem wenige Server auf denen nicht normale Maps laufen. Ich finde es sehr schade, dass das der einzige Grund ist warum es momentan so gut wie unmöglich ist so etwas zu spielen, denn im Grunde ist GO in meinen Augen eig nichts weiter als CS:S mit ein paar Neuerungen und Verbesserungen.
Achso wenn du willst dann kannst du ja mal die IP von einem guten zombie server posten, dann probiere ich es vielleicht noch einmal. :P

Well let me explain.
Im cheap.
Need I say more?
You play CSS because you are mad at everyone! :P

Ich denke CS:GO braucht nur etwas Zeit um mehr Spieler zu bekommen, aber CS:S ersetzen wird es denke ich nie, denn CS:S hatte auch nie 1.6 ersetzt. So wenige Spieler sind das übrigens gar nicht wenn man in der Steamspiele Statistik schaut.
Hier die IP falls du den Server mal testen möchtest:
Leider finde ich in CS:GO nicht solche Server aber vielleicht ändert sich das noch in Zukunft :)
Becke Mar 4, 2013 @ 6:35am 
k, danke für die IP. Werde den Server demnächst mal antesten.
Ja klar es spielen schon recht viele GO, aber ich hatte mir es eig erhofft, dass so gut wie jeder überwechselt. Zumindest auf professioneller Basis ist dies ja schon geschehen. (Obwohl sich hier natürlich die Frage wie stark da nachgeholfen wurde) Zwischen 1.6 und CS:S ist schon ein enormer Unterschied da kann ich es verstehen, dass die Community sich aufgeteilt hat, aber zwischen CS:S und GO ist der Unterschied ja eig nicht so groß.

I still play source simply because the game play is more fun than GO. GO improved some stuff, don't get me wrong, but the fact is there is as much broken with GO as source, just in differing areas. I can't deny that GO's hitboxes are a little more consistent than source, though not perfect.

Warning: the following is an opinion, if you read it as fact, side effects could include, but are not limited to, butthurt.

The game play in GO feels detached and numb. The only way I've found to describe how it feels to me, is that it's like running around on ice. I don't feel like I'm taking 3 steps to the right, I feel like I'm sliding around on the floor. From the little I've played (in comparison to the ridiculous amount of time spent in source) GO, all I can say is I'm far from impressed. It seems as though valve took all the complaints about source and created a game completely opposite to source. Guns that were considered overpowered in source, are now completely useless in GO and vice versa.

Source's game play stays fun for me simply because it feels sharp. It feels like I am in control of every movement, as apposed to the numbness experienced when playing GO. I've been playing source for 8 years, and 1.6 for a short time before that. I will always find entertainment in the franchise, even GO, despite my disappointment.

SUMMARY for the TL;DR crowd:
Source game play = sharp and fun with a great community
GO game play = Numb and Nerfed weapons... AKA Running on Ice with Squirt Guns.

And why does it seem like a huge portion of the A-holes from source now play GO... Nothing but♥♥♥♥♥♥talking and trolls. But I must say, please keep it this way, source doesn't miss you.

It's weird cause thought I saw on metacritic that CS:S got a higher score than CS:GO by a few points not a big leap though :P their both good games anyway.

CS:Go sucks
I uninstalled CSS looks too loony cartoony for my tastes... cs:go definitely has the more realistic look
