You can find the rest of HLTV.org's videos by going to our YouTube channel here.
Obviously, if there is such outspoken disdain for GO whenever a news story about it or video gets posted, a fairly large proportion of the HLTV.org community is pretty unhappy about GO. Tournaments are dropping their beloved game and picking up one that think is a piece of crap. I'd be upset too.
For them, the only way they can see tournaments picking up 1.6 again is if they publicly say, "Hey, I don't like this shit. It sucks. It is CS in name only. Give me 1.6 back." If no one says anything and just says great things about GO then tournament organizers will think we are all happy with GO, which couldn't be further from the truth. Criticism is good and it lets the people calling the shots know how we feel -- pissed off.
So yeah, criticism is good. And the fact some people don't like the game doesn't mean it's forbidden for them to give an opinion.
You guys are just angry to see that not everybody is saying " wow nice, super game " ..
didn't get the idiotic comment part till yours came up so..
shows how delusional most of these guys are

I played and guns dont have recoil...
youre mad bcuz youre angry all the time
The recoil when spraying at current is so different to CSS or 1.6, and if you try to spray and run its near impossible (with rifles, not SMGs). People whining about it simply can't control it, you just need to tap like in any other iteration of the game.
And even those who had to go to the Global Offensive, keep playing Soars. That's ok ?
The problem isn't that Valve have ignored the competitive community. It's that PC FPS gaming is just too small of a market compared to console FPS gaming.
Steam stats of people playing shouldn't dictate how many people watch it, as the large majority of players watching are likely to be from other games. FPS is simple to understand and easy to watch with tense action, I find CSGO just as good as any other version of CS for that.
edit: if 1.6 users got what they wanted, a new game wouldn't of been developed, tournaments would still be playing 1.6.

Yes, they obviously do, and if you think otherwise you're deluded. We could bring up some of the stream numbers for GO since you think player count isn't a good indicator of spectator interest -- oh wait, nobody watches GO streams because there are hardly any people playing it. Look at twitch.tv and how many people are streaming other games (SC2, LoL, Dota 2) with much higher viewer counts What about tournament streams, what's the highest spec count GO has ever gotten? 1000 maybe? Yeah, I'm sure that'll be able to compete with games like LoL that are regularly pulling in 100k viewers!
Never said CSGO could compete with MOBA games, infact I said it can't! All I said was that you can't base viewing figures on players. Every sport is the same, you don't need to play something to watch it and be interested in it. So thanks for calling me delusional but I think I'm being quite logical with that...
The only thing CS:GO has going for it is it's name, being part of the "Counter-Strike" franchise, but if it had been called COD:GO and released by Activision nobody except 13 year old kids and their XBOXs would give a shit about it. Good job quoting 1 washed up NA pro on CS 1.6 getting boring for him (probably said it around the same time CGS came out where he was being PAYED to play CSS btw), whilst right now you can look at teams like ESC and Na`Vi making fun of CS:GO because quite frankly it's complete trash compared to 1.6 and I could get you plenty more quotes. ESC have said that they'd rather play LoL than GO, and Na`Vi have said they'd rather play Dota 2. CS is what made the big organisations like EG, Na`Vi, coL big, but what about now? CS is NOTHING to them, they've all moved on. All 3 of those organisations recently had their Dota teams playing in a $1,600,000 USD tournament, with Na`Vi taking back $250,000 this year and winning the $1,000,000 last year.
http://i.imgur.com/AN0QS.png - as shown in the screenshot, at the time of writing this Dota has over 100k players, while GO sits on 15k. A game in CLOSED BETA is making a game that has already reached RETAIL look like a joke. 1.6 sits on 44k, which is much more respectable than GO, and has been out for ~10 years. GO/Source fanboys need to grow up and realise that CS is DEAD and it isn't coming back any time soon.

Steam stats don't lie, and if you choose to act as if you can't read them then that's something I cannot help you with.

How the fuck can GO have a better future than 1.6? 1.6 was THE MAIN esport title for YEARS. Do you really think GO even has a chance of reaching that status and competing with all the popular RTS style games which are dominating the scene? Like I said before, if you don't know how to read numbers it's your own problem. GO has hardly any players, tournaments, money, it's in retail, and there's no chance of it suddenly skyrocketing.
You were about 11 years old at 1.6's peak, it's pretty hilarious that you'd even try to take away from what I've said by calling me 15.
Doesn't that mean anything to you? This game is about as popular as FarmVille is a competitive title - NOT AT ALL. Do you really think sponsors are going to keep funding tournaments for a game with no future?
