-1 u must to test steam, u can buy it on steam ventas arg 60$ and the game it's different than the nosteam version, you have cz models, and a platform to chat with ur steam friends, new method to take screenshot, u can choose any language.. it's SO different.
/Edit: So be realistic there is no diference between the one from steam and no-steam...
CZ Models? cl_minimodels 1 is the same shit.
Plataform to chat? MSN is much better.
New method to take screenshots? wtf, who cares about that.
Choose language? The first time i installed steam in my old PC, i choose the spanish version, believe me is a pain in the ass.
So, you are not paying to be more skillfull, just for the chat, etc that here in argentina we already have... I admit that is good to try it, because is the original game and maybe you feel proud to have it, and the price is really cheap, but if you dont have the money to pay steam, and you want to try it, believe me the in-game performance is the same.
CZ models and cl_minimodels 1 are different things,but tbh CZ models sux and they are not allowed on most of leagues in my country so I am still using old models :).
You are right, there is no difference in gameplay between NS and Steam CS,but it is like when you playing WoW on official server and WoW on free server.You will be scrub for players with steam CS atleast in our country.
If you play on NS they will not even talk to you, because you are worthless when you cannot even afford Steam CS, because CS costs 15$ ~ here :).
Thats the best way, but i guess you could also take a bus from BA to BAR (its cheaper but it takes like 20hs).
July, August, even September after the "Santa Rosa" storm (1ºst/2nd weekº).
