Emil "HeatoN" Christensen has blogged on fragbite.se, saying Counter-Strike: Global Offensive "feels like the right thing."
The retired, former professional player Emil "HeatoN" Christensen has blogged about the revival of Ninjas in Pyjamas following today's news about the organization's resurgence and the recruiting of a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team.
Christensen writes that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive feels like the right thing now when tournament organizers have started weeding out Counter-Strike 1.6 and the player base diminishing.
The multiple CPL medalist continues to praise CS:GO, adding that the game, which will be released later this month, looks good and is starting to improve, encouraging people to give it a shot.
Speaking on the newly recruited team, Christensen explains how he was thrilled by the chemistry between the players when they had a barbeque get together at Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's place.
"Their chemistry coupled with the enormous talent and motivation in them makes me confident that they'll be one of the absolute best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams," Christensen noted.

The 1.6 community is not like anything else.
For instance CoD, Battlefield and RTS gamers who change between games as it's a blondie downtown.
The most similar community would be the Quake community.
If everything fails why CS:GO? There are (atm) much much better games out there to play competitive, so why choose a game just because it also has Counter-Strike in it's name?
And ofc it's still too soon to say, but if it keeps being the CS:S style maps, the same terrible recoil and "dynamic" movement, this is going to be a huge disaster for sure.
As always, this community is not about graphics or modern gameplay. This community is about skill, flow, simplistic yet extremely sophisticated gameplay and everything in between.
Sadly theres a looooonnnnggg way for that to happen.

1.6 fanboys live in a fantasy world where travelling and tournaments cost nothing and the scene can support an infinite number of proffessional teams.
I'm glad we agree on that
The people who live in the 'fantasy' world, are people who think that jumping ship to a new game will allow these players to live that "Pro Gamer" lifestyle. Valve has already shown they have no interest in the players with what they want, so people shouldn't just be 'moving on to what's next' they should be stopping playing Valve games all together.
"If you can't beat them, join them" is an absolutely foolish logic to have with CS:GO and gaming in general. Above all, these games need to be made for the gamers, not for the sponsors and for the money in the pocket of the companies. Of course the pro players will move on to CS:GO, similar to how players moved on to CGS. But what does it do long-term? It hurts both games.
If CS:GO isn't wildly successful, it will cause damage to CS1.6 as well as CS:GO, as well as CS:S - not just one game. Does Valve care about that? Hell no. This will be similar to Diablo 3's release - Blizzard already has so much money coming from SC2/WoW that they don't care how much garbage a game they produce is, they care about $$$$$. They're getting their money with D3 regardless of poor quality - and Valve will be doing the same with CS:GO.
The only people to blame will be the players who just suck it up and take it, rather than recognize that it's foolish to keep on with a company who has vested interests. A company who cares not about quality of play, but simply how much money they will rake in.
If you want to make money in the short-term, switching to CS:GO is the smartest decision over 1.6 - but this is just going to create another divide in an already chaotic system for Counter-Strike.
Just a brief 2 cents, there's so much more I can say but it's pointless. CS 1.6 tournaments aren't exciting anymore because these guys just don't have the passion they used to. When you're playing for small amounts of money, these guys just aren't going at it as hard as they used to. And even if the biggest names ever in CS1.6 move on to CS:GO, the game play is still lackluster at the very best.
csp are doing it in the right direction. and the right direction is always hard to follow. it needs time.
Have you even tried CS:GO since the major update came out a few hours ago? I personally think it's really good, not only that but I think it's fun to play.
You (and the majority of the hltv.org community) seem to think that the only way a new cs can be considered a success is if it's an exact replica of 1.6 but with updated graphics. If they make even the slightest deviation from 1.6 then it's a worthless game and it will fail horribly.
Valve isn't making CS:GO for the sole purpose of pleasing the 1.6 community. If valve decides to put something into CS:GO that is different from 1.6 this doesn't mean that they're a money hungry corporation that doesn't give a fuck about what the players think of the game.
Do you see what I'm saying? 1.6 is not the standard around which every new Counter Strike game should be created.
Also, the 'cs 1.6 standard' is not still there to an extent but if you want something easier maybe you should quit CS 1.6 or CS alltogether and start playing cod on the xbox like every other kid.
They have to also take input from Source players, and even players who are new to Counter Strike.
Allthough I don't like all of the changes to the maps I do like the fact that they changed them. The map pool in 1.6 has seen very little change over the years. When they decided to add maps like tuscan, mirage and forge to the pool many pros welcomed the change (allthough the hltv.org community hated it as it does with any changes to anything).
Changing the maps lets people come up with new exciting strats, because let's face it, coming up with something completely new and game breaking on dust2 in 1.6 isn't gonna happen.
And no, I don't want something easier. In fact I like to think I'm pretty good at 1.6, most of my current gaming gear has been won through 1.6.
I think CS:GO is fun and I look forward to winning my next set of gear in that game :)
PS your profile says you're 15, so who's the kid now?
I see what you're saying, but you're also putting words in my mouth. So it's very difficult for me to even consider creating a reply for you.
Valve is a money hungry corporation? Do you need proof as to why? They're a corporation, there, your proof.
"Do you see what I'm saying? 1.6 is not the standard around which every new Counter Strike game should be created."
Well, it kind of is. Seeing as CZ, Source, and now CS:GO have been created around 'improving' CS1.6, not starting over and making a whole new game type.
I have played CS:GO since the update, and no, I do not find it very fun. And outside of graphically, I don't find the game 'really good' but luckily that is entirely up to an opinion.
I'm the type of person to hang on to something for the sake of nostalgia, 1.6 has seen it's last breath. But at the same time, that doesn't mean just because "Out with the old, in with the new" needs to be applied, that the "new" should just be played regardless of the quality.
CS:GO in it's current state, in my opinion, is not fun, it's not enjoyable to watch, and the game play could use a lot of work. It has a ton of potential, but so did the other 'expansions' of Counter-Strike.
I am in no way saying that a game has to be a clone of 1.6 with better graphics in order to be a success. I am only saying that this current version of CS:GO we have is not going to cut it. People using tired apples and oranges arguments are silly, of course pro players are going to switch to it - the money will now be in CS:GO. That doesn't make it a better game. And people comparing it to LoL or SC2 - is even more illogical. CS even back in it's prime was never able to be a spectator e-sport like Starcraft is, because SC is (mostly) played 1v1, so it's incredibly fun for spectators because you can watch everything that's happening.
I don't care if there is a new version of CS, I'm not some nostalgic baby who's afraid of change. I only care that the new version being given to us is lackluster and that it seemed to create an even bigger divide in an already dying community.
I would delve further into this discussion with you, but almost your entire post is making assumptions about me, or putting words in my mouth, so I don't see the point in a much lengthier post, as you will likely skim over it and just tell me what you think I meant.
I hope you can understand what I meant.

I'm not a CS:GO fan myself but I'm just opposing the way you guys going about 'he's been paid to promote CS:GO'.
and paying players/events to promote their game is just some cheap marketing
There have been games that were a hit and a flop but no company ever pays players to promote their game because they know eventually there will new upcoming professionals in the game. CS:GO will create its own competitive scene and bring up new players. People will eventually switch to CS:GO sooner or later.
No company ever paid to any players/events to promote their games doesnt mean they will never do and it isnt a hard task for a company like valve.
you probably dont know what marketing is.
once people see their fav players playing cs:go they will buy it and it will be more $ for valve.
people will switch to go but will leave this shit sooner or later just as they did to source
So you mean, Valve (Valve's representative) went to HeatoN, had a meeting in his house, had lunch together, the agent pulls out a bag of moolah and asks him to promote CS:GO?! Bwahahahaha! LMFAO!
I think that the best way to replace 1.6 is to do a game that is better, because no1 wants to switch to a worst thing, even in life (if you what it is)
The point is, that we, 1.6 lovers, are giving our opinions and yes, we can probably leave in a fantasy world, but no, we live in the same world as you, and we just want a game that could seem more like 1.6, not a game that is made for kiddos that only look for fancy doors and weapond that seems like swabs.
If a community full of people expected it to fail, what better way to help out the reputation than have one of the biggest names in that game say something nice about it?
Just playing devil's advocate, as I think HeatoN is more than correct in his opinion.
For all bitches who think Valve paid event organisers to promote CS:GO, you're seriously mistaken. The inclusion of game titles happens this way as it is in the following article- http://www.hltv.org/news/8723-carmac-no-csgo-as-ma..
and they achieve that also by promoting the game through famous people - in this case heaton.
and thats why heaton is a sellout because he speaks in the name of company interests.
So tell me then. Why just HeatoN? Why not other legends like SpawN, dsn, walle, fr0d, cArn and many others?
Moreover the company's interest lies in providing gamers with new games regularly. So if you're suggesting Valve shuts itself down instead of releasing a "sequel" to this epic series you're being plain dumb!
the only thing csgo has in common with other cs series is the name.
i'm just sayin.
CS 1.6 is the best.
edit: forgot that sk already did release their cs division lol
cs 1.6 had it's time. 12 years are simply enough, it's time for something new and fresh
Post edited 2012-08-10 18:34:02
Imo csp is only a graphical improvement not more
Like 1.6, play 1.6. Like CSP, play CSP. Like CS:GO, play CS:GO. No one's gonna put you in jail for playin' a game of your choice.
Post edited 2012-08-10 17:53:25
If you haven't tried CS:GO, stop hating it 'cause afterwards you try it you'll be playing all day.
P.S. I know what marketing is. Valve developed both CS1.6 and CS:GO. So they possibly wouldn't be shitting on their God-Like creation to promote CS:GO.
it was just an example that he may not like something but i like it and its absolutely my wish to like it or not
could u bother reading my previous reply? i said i have played it and its shit for sure.
i dont think they would have any problems in paying players/events to play their game and ofc when people see their fav players playing they would buy it
And don't you get my point?
Valve developed both CS1.6 and CS:GO. So why would they ever want to shit on CS1.6 by bringing out CS:GO?
And about paying to event organisers for including their game title-
They go with the game title with could involve more spectators and the gamers playing that game. Let's say, Valve paid them to include CS:GO, it doesn't attract many spectators and teams to take the event on with, so where does that leave them? The obviously want to include a game which is popular among the masses. They can't afford to incur such a big loss.
And you are being plain dumb when you say Valve pays events players/organisers for game promotion.
Read this article first and then reply.
1.6 is loosing its charm so they want something that could take its place.so they are bringing in cs:go.
imagine almost all the pros of 1.6 switch to cs:go and events start picking it then more that 50% of the people will switch to cs:go and only thing they can do it is buying the game?
they are trying their best to make it popular and i didnt say they are paying,coz i dont have any proof for it. m just saying its not a hard task for them to pay
probably u should read articles on the ways companies use to advertise their product

Is there any survey you did to prove this point?
Imo, this guy is fucking retarded because he has no idea about the number of registered members.
As of August 2011, the Counter-Strike franchise has sold over 27 million units
these are just steam stats, add asian,brazil,argentina etc non steam users.

They all started playing CS 1.6 (or a previous version of CS) as unpaid "no-names" and at the beginning (!) they only played it because they enjoyed it. A lot of them switch to CS:GO now because that's where the money goes. These are two different motivations to pick up a game.
I doubt there will be something like CS 2.0 created, at least, it's not gonna happen in near future, as some of the players think, so in stead of waiting for something that's not even planned to be produced, just give it a shot in CS:GO...
Who knows... ;))

And let me tell you something , only source players will succeed in CS:GO.
Why are face, f0rest & Xizt playing CSGO?
There was danish 5on5 CSGO cup few days ago that 5 top/prof. players from CSS vs 5 normal-good players from CS 1.6 and it ended 16-10 to CSS clan..
but now paying players to recruit team and play it is too much valve

The full game will be released officially on the 21st but if you pre-order it you will be able to participate meanwhile in the beta from the 14th onward until the full game is released (which by pre-ordering it you already paid for thus no need to pay anything again).

Its just my opinion...!
This is a translation of a part of his blog text:
"1.6 will always be closest to my heart and my favorite game, but when tournament after tournament drop 1.6 and the player base shrinks and shrinks and then comes the "sequel" CS:GO that looks really good it feels like the right thing to do!"
Sounds pretty sensible to me.
get open minded guys, deal with it and play csgo for a few weeks until you get good at the game and see its fun. just like the professionals do, if you get used to it then its a good game. valve is updating it by time and works hard on the game to make it successfull and fit to the community, they are doing a good job.
you guys are yelling like old pensioneers "blabla in the past everything was better blablabla" wow guys its 2012, move on. play csgo or have fun on empty or bot servers in 1.6
we need a new cs now, or cs will be dead forever and overtaken by all the arts/rts titles in esport. let the new era begin
thats why csgo has a better movement now as a few months back, also silencer for m4 is coming soon etc. the recoil also got reworked and is very near to 1.6 right now.
maps arent a problem, i bet there will be community made tournament/league maps soon in 1.6 style just with the csgo graphics
Dota2, on the other hand, is the perfect example of developers listening to the community and making a game with competitivness in mind. It is everything that DotA is except better. All the engine limitations are fixed... Not to mention that creating completely new hero in DotA, from scracth whose model isn't in WC3:TFT (Ancient Apparation) broke the WC3 limit of mapsize, but soon Blizzard rised the cap from 4MB to 8MB per map, but still DotA map is still capped almost at maximum. Even the custom loading screen takes 2MBs which is 25% of maximum mapsize.
In terms of skill DOTA2 and DotA+WarKeys require the same skill. The only difference is that DOTA2 is clearer (which might or might not make it slightly easier, but still it is a good change ofc).

You are a writer on this site are you not? And you are slamming Valve for not listening when 75% of the updates are based primarily on beta testing and feedback given to them, why do you think they have people like Volcano and J3di salaried for them to help develop this feedback. Oh if you don't know who J3di is, he was a person who developed zBlock for Source which single handedly kept Source a competitive title, he also has in depth knowledge of the Source engine.
You carry on rounding up these sheep to say the same thing about how Valve don't listen to the community feedback. Do you not realise its in their best interests to listen?
That was always the plan, if you listen the first interviews months before the beta came out, Chet said that they would port the spectator mode from Dota 2, again, it wasn't something that the community requested in the first place.
Remember the awesome "The science of fog" blog, supposedly explaining the necessity of the crazy amounts of fog? It was nothing more than valve inventing some excuse so they wouldn't have to work on some other way to optimize the maps for the consoles.
I never said that they aren't listening to the feedback, they simply weren't listening until a few months ago. Their plan was to release another mediocre CS, but what they weren't expecting was that the announcement of CS:GO would kill the CS, CS:S scenes.
Their PR talk "We'll release it when the community say it's ready, it might take a 1 month or 2 years" and announcing a release date a couple of months later might have been the final blow to lose the trust with the community.
Now it might be a bit late to release the game the community wants, valve only has one more update, maybe two, before they release the full game, and if by then it's not good enough for the pro gaming scene it will just kill the scene, no doubt.
Yes they PR talked about releasing the game when it's ready but then it's 'Valve time' and I just feel they won't release it on aug 21st, I could be wrong though.
The scenes were already dead before CS:GO, if a new CS title wasn't round the corner I still think IEM and the rest would have dropped 1.6, the game was shrinking by size etc. I also still believe CS:GO is the 'transition CS' at present but i do want people to move over to show that CS is worth giving a shit about.
What we are lucky with is with a determined community, we can get changes done, and as I said with people like j3di helping Valve we can get the game in a good competitive state.
Yes, a new era of CS needs to begin - 1.6 is living it's last breath. But all the hyperbolic nostalgic players aren't the people to listen to.
We do need a new CS, but a terrible one isn't what we need. We as players shouldn't move on to a new game just for the sake of it being a new game. We should move on because of quality. If we're not given quality, then we should be moving on to something else. Not just following the herd because it's "the best we've got"
You can't compare RTS/MOBA games to FPS games. DoTA2 feeling different compared to WC3 DoTA is so astronomically different than how CS:GO feels compared to CS1.6
I don't care about ushering in a new game - but don't insult the players by putting it under the guise of "Counter-Strike."
The thing that really makes this a "new era" of CS is that so many people are just willing to bend over and take it because it's what we're being offered. GTR/f0rest/other pro's who are moving on to CS:GO aren't doing it for the game play. They're doing it for the money. Seeing as the drastic majority of all players will not be doing it for that same reason, the only reason you should be moving on is for enjoyment.
If you're a fan of CS:GO, great, play that. If you're a fan of CS1.6, then you should play that instead. But people need to stop acting like we're going to see another heyday of CS where the competition looks like it did a few years ago, just because they're bringing in CS:GO.
Guess what! you don't HAVE to change to GO. I will because I really enjoy it but no one is forcing you to do shit.
Many people are going to like GO and it will be a successful game, not as successful as 1.6 but more successful than source. If you have a genuine problem with the game then stop being a 12 year old and bitching over forums and tell Valve. THE GAME IS IN BETA.
1.6 will die soon enough and one day you guys will have to try the game, just because you can't instantly get a +3 KD ratio doesn't mean you shouldn't persist, how many of you didn't like 1.6 when 1.5 was out?
Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but this is just silly...every cs:go thread I have seen, you childish players have to state your meaningless hatred. Grow up, counter strike is meant to be for a more mature community.
(not mad by the way, just thought I should have my say)
A game that was the main fps for 10 years now gets a sequel which doesn't resemble the original at all (gameplay wise).and the community who waited for a game worthy to replace cs for so long got dissapointed the 2nd time (css 1st,csgo 2nd) and you expect the older players to smile and be satisfied?
the players who are willing to play csgo are mostly <18 years old,so calling the others childish is ridiculous.
Valve checks hltv so they'll probably see all those posts.
P.S. so sick of lil kids writing CS 1.6 forever, be real guys, this is reality!

The ONLY thing we can do to still have CS as an e-sport is to support CS:GO. (we can't rely on CSP)
They are updating the game all the time. Evry time i open CS:GO there have been some new changes to ether the recoil, Movment whatever. It's actully geting good.
Insted of flameing.. why not give it a shot? You have NOTHING to lose.

You are all so fucking retarded it actually makes me feel physically sick. Why in gods name would Valve pay people to stop playing a game. At the end of the day they don't care what game you play as long as it is a Valve game!
And for the people saying that only source players will succeed in CS:GO you are also retarded, pretty sure 1.6 teams came top 2/3 at the CS:GO tournament in Copenhagen?
It's a new game, its the only FPS game that can get FPS back on the eSports map. support it or fuck off you cretins

Everybody play what he wants.
People have the right to have a free opinion about anything, like was said here before if u don't like its ok don't play it, if you like it its ok too, and if you think the game is nice but not good as cs 1.6 but maybe will have some improvements (i think it will) its ok too.
Remember we are free to chose what we want, atleast thats what says in the human rights.. :)
it wont change anything... he wants money,as everyone of us... some have it by a good way,some by a bad way,by lying and shit like that...
I feel so bad right now as a part of this comunity, because of comment like : "die csgo" , "csgo sucks" , "It's COD" and similar...
If you don't like it ,don't play it, you also have filter and you should turn off csgo news.Someone said "i will plat CoD and not game like cs:go - Ok, how will dropping 1.6 and some players switching to go , change your 1.6 life ? Most of you will continue to casualy play 1.6 (gathers mixes, etc...).
It's not like valave will delete 1.6.I can also bet that more than 60% of haters will try cs:go sooner or later.
At the end if game is bad, players will leave it, like it was caase with css.And ofcourse it's all about the money.That's why it's called professional gaming, players are living from their salaries.
I'm convinced that you would drop your current low-paid job for new job with higher salary.

I just can't believe you're wasting this much time being on a 1.6 forum when your a CSS player, your forums dead or something?
I'm a CSS player yes, but I started on 1.6, sooooo I enjoy being here for the reason of keeping my head in the know, especially for the run in of CS:GO, it keeps me clued up on who may switch etc.
I deciphered his post, and still cant quite get my head around how stupid he is.
Just because something is DIFFERENT to whatever has happened before, does not mean it is WORSE.
sure, competitive maps can fix it and similar recoil, but that's all we really need, not much more and if it has more support then CSP then poeple will make the switch to cs:go.

If you still think we should hang on to 1.6, you're an idiot.
Either he knows some secret settings that makes the game much more playable or he is just so confident that the game will improve big time for the better.
So anyone who is ignorant and says "No, let's stay with 1.6" or "1.6 forever!!" is just silly. Competitive 1.6 and source are finished. I'm speaking purely from a competition view, though. If you're a casual player who just wants to have a little fun and doesn't care about the competition, then play what you want :)
I'm just criticizing the whole developement of CS:GO as it has been so far.
u r a joke. csgo is for casual player. and thats why so many pros didnt want to swtch to csgo and criticize on csgo so hard previously.
they got f0rest, gtr and even xizt, then u r saying 1.6 is dead. thats funny. remember most 1.6 pros still stay on cs1.6, they and many sponsors are still waiting to see the real final csgo.
you seem like more diligent than the valve advertising team for supporting csgo. u dont understand what is competitive. competitive gaming is first about the gameplay itself.
Surprised he didn't say cs:go is more tactical.
P.S. So many cs:go defenders these days just prove the fact that valve got it absolutely right - for the biggest part of the community (kids mostly) advertising is everything, they play games because it's "cool" to play a specific game at this very moment, not because they really like it more than others of that type, and when it becomes "not cool" they easily switch to a new one kindly brought to them by the developer. That how the market works, nothing more to say.
1st of all I just hate the graphics in the game.Everything looks plasticky and rather odd.There is a lot of unnecessary thing that can distract you while playing.
The animations look horrible as far as kills are concerned and that blur on the AWP is just awful.
The sounds of the m4 and the ak are just horrendous.They sound like toys instead of guns(don't know how did the update effect that).
Profesional CS:S is long dead and 1.6 will follow soon but I don't think CS:GO(with no major changes) will be the next great CS game.
CSP isn't bad but it has been in the making for too long.But still I think it has a shot especially if they do manage to do that texture updates and death cam animations right.
If CS:GO turns out to be a bad game and CSP fails I'll rather switch to LoL(or maybe DoTA2 if I'll like it) than support a shitty CS game

Yeah i also love 1.6 .. i played it for 12 years. Besides I HATED source...
But after that update it's a really playable game! Everybody who is saying "lololol random recoil" played it for 1-2 hours. You wanna say me that you learned 1.6 in 2 hours? I dont think so. You need time to arrange yourself with the new recoil. But hey... it's easier to say "lol, shit game, recoils i random"... Idiots.
Cs is dying and im not happy about that (instead i am really sad about that..).
ESL cuts the CS AND CSS EPS, fnatic,mouz,sk and other teams are retiering... So yeah.. you wanna say cs 1.6 is alive? Hold your illusions..
They want to reunite the 2 communities. CS:GO have the requirements to make this reunion possible.
You wanna know why its possible?
- official support from valve
- many progamers are supporting CS:Go
- better netcode
- Casualmode und ELO-Matchmaking
- Steam Workshop for CS:GO
- cheap price
and so on. I don't want to describe every point. Go get some informations! And please... stop that dumb ass populisitc crying...
And thats why i don't understand some "LOLOLOLOL CS 1.6 FOREVER" - Faggots. I mean... It's our LAST chance for the FPS-section.
Games like SC2 or LoL are watched by so many people and sponsors are supporting those games.
They eliminate the shooter section.
Thats why i have to ask: are u serious? Is this your biggest problem? Freting about cs 1.6 which is dying?
Just my 2 cents.
