The Counter Strike: Global Offensive closed beta went live on November 30 and it seems that some avid fans has discovered the map list for the game.
The information started flowing around on the official Steam forums as the key holders analyzed in-game functionalities and game files, having found what seems to be the complete map list for the game itself. The list, located in the game's "maplist.txt" file lists 16 maps.
Valve's Chet Faliszek had already stated earlier this year that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive would feature 16 maps on three different platforms (PC, PS3 and XBOX 360) – eight classic maps and eight Gun Game maps. The Arsenal mode has two different approaches, demolition and arms race .
The maps listed in the file can be divided into two sections:
Arsenal mode maps
The "ar" maps stand for "arms race", traditionally known as gungame, while the "de" maps are a fusion between normal demoliton mode with the setup of a gungame match.
There will also be a bonus training map named "training1" which should be part of the "Training Course" tab in the game's menu. According with the information displayed in the console this local play mode will be a time trial practise course, similiar to the one featured in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes.
Relatively to other possible maps, there was also some speculation around a few console logs that pointed out some unknown map names such as:

It's a game with a lot of potential
The 1.6 graphics are obviously shit, but the sounds are almost flawless, I can't find a fps with better sounds (the weapons sounds, the nades explosion sounds, it's very good imo, just compare it to CSS as an example)
Therefore they're saying this requirement doesn't exist when asked them.
Also, they're saying CS:GO isn't a game of skill?
+ They're updating CS:S, which means they're not trying to make CS:GO 1st place.
It's more like CZ(both of them in old engines), and we know there'll be a CS2, so we can see CS2 in 1 year.
and i think hltv.org will cover CS:GO until its release.

"The 1.6 graphics are obviously shit, but the sounds are almost flawless, I can't find a fps with better sounds (the weapons sounds, the nades explosion sounds, it's very good imo, just compare it to CSS as an example)"
It serves it's purpose, but it isn't good. Not for a modern game anyway.
What do maps "covered with lots of objects, boxes and retarded things" have to do with professional 5v5 tournaments? Wouldn't that actually force the players to use them and indirectly add more variety to the game with the players getting more options?
Won't comment the sounds, but the graphics are good enough. If a game doesn't have ridiculously high resolution textures it doesn't mean that it has bad graphics. You should be happy about that since half of the CS1.6 community won't have to buy new PCs if they plan to switch.
Instead of whining like a little kid because you don't like changes, you should be happy that the scene gets a brand new game whose developers actually care and work with the community in order to make it as good as possible.
with that fact in mind, it's easy to say it's a worse game than 1.6, coz 1.6 gameplay is flawless, perfect... so why I would change to a worst game? because it's new? because it has 10x better graphics? I don't care about graphics, if so I would play a game with REAL good graphics, like BF3 and MW3... for me it's all about: G-A-M-E-P-L-A-Y
since the perfect 1.6 gameplay is gone in the new game, this game won't be good for me
The game isn't dying because of the lack of innovations, it's dying because of the newer games, that offer 100x better graphics and more realistic feeling than CS... and the new kids (10~15 years old) only care abouth graphics, no matter how shitty it's gameplay is.
That's why sponsors lose interest on the game, because it's old and ugly, why would they want to spend $60.000 in a game like this (that can be played on super low-end computers) when they can spend $60.000 in a 'mainstream', modern game, like Battlefield 3, that actually needs high-end hardware (wich is what makes the thing VERY interesting for them, since most of the sponsors are hardware related, like Intel, Nvidia, etc).
yes, play alone my friend
The pro's only hope is to make sure this game is done properly, and the devs are listening. They already patched the beta
It's not a shit game, you obviously haven't tried it.
Just because your computers can't play games made this century.
i bet my pc is 10 times better than u PC
cant believe it
Just because its new doesnt automatically mean it sucks
This is exactly what we needed. All the recent maps have been no-where near the standard of the traditional war maps made by valve. (not counting remakes), but more like the contest maps like Hell, or the random ones in some of ESEA's.
Besides, CS was not fit to have the same system like tf2. It never did in the first place and honestly who wants to see their characters with bunny ears or some weird hats lol.
Just my opinion, but I'm not sure what is your level of intel at this point nor what Valve are thinking so we'll see I guess.

Did you read their interviews? Did you understand what they're trying to do?
They'renot trying to replace 1.6 or source with new game.
"That's what Counter-Strike is: a game of skill. And this is what CS:GO is: an effort to put anyone who has or should play Counter-Strike into the same game. That's a big enough goal but not a grand enough one to merit the name Counter-Strike 2."
CS:GO is CZ 2. They're making cs2 and after CS:GO they can announce it.
Now let's wait for tuscan/mirage/forge to get added to the pool.
cs:go = 99% cs:source 1% new weapons new modifications but the game is source it's another game as ceh9 said its like call of dutty or another game it's not cs
cs 1.6 is the best game competitive for me !
