Best era of CS 1.6
Lithuania Ayaiaiai 
From 1.6 to csgo which era was best? I was not interested in CS1.6 since GO came out in 2014 I watched my first major ESL One Katowice. I wanted to know what era of 1.6 was considered the best?

What year in particular. I know Heaton got his name from some hockey gear or something.

>cs1.6 >2001
2018-03-17 22:55
According to this logic, you should make a difference between every updates in cs:go.
2018-03-17 22:56
just say cs and csgo, you dont need to add 1.6

The term CS includes Source and GO, just like Halo includes 2, 3 etc. and Call of Duty includes 2, 3, MW and so on. Battlefield was the only franchise smart enough to realize that they needed a specific name for their first title (I guess you could say the same about Halo, but nobody said CE until after Halo 2). There really is no other way of referring to the original Counter Strike than just saying 1.6 even if it's wrong, or saying the exact version of the game, which would be incredibly cumbersome.
2018-03-20 16:17
CS is a game and a franchise, its hard to differentiate between the 2 but you can still say CS instead of 1.6 and it would be correct

Yeah, it's all semantics and won't lead to any real issues. People just prefer to be wrong and accidentally refer to 1.4 as 1.6 rather than use the more general term of "Counter-Strike" and potentially cause confusion. The game was 1.6 for nine out of the twelve years of active competitive play, so odds are you won't be referring to an earlier patch than 1.6 most of the time, especially considering how most of the all time greats entered the scene after '03.

which era was best?

I'd argue '09 onwards. The competition was great with teams like fnatic, later SK, mTw, Na'Vi, and the golden five. I'm personally a GtR/f0rest fanboy so I'm pretty biased in this tho.
2018-03-21 08:23
GtR, f0rest, cogu, markeloff and neo all great players

Yeah but by 2010 it was already 1.6 was kinda limping along and not as popular like it was before economy crash and call of duty

2003-2005 and 2009-2011

Mmmh nope. NiP era shortly before CGS with HeatoN, Potty, walle, zet & ins was cool to watch. zet was insane. Too bad he left to play in America.
2018-03-19 11:33
2009-2011, it was the highest level of course as it was the latest meta of the game.

sk and fnatic . navi and esc gaming (virtus pro ) they have always been tier 1 team as well. fnatic era was towards end of the 1.6 so im not sure if it counts
2018-03-17 19:21
Also Complexity won a major this was first NA team to so so I think
2018-03-17 19:22
what about NiP era?
2018-03-17 19:37
wouldnt call it era since the competition wasnt at that high level back then

fnatic era was towards the end??? 2006, 07 and 09 was in the end? also navi had the most dominant era in 1.6 history, not counting 2003 SK.swe that is.
2018-03-19 15:59
Imo 09 Fnatic was more dominant that NAVI

2002-2005/2006 was the best era for the original CS. It was quite top heavy in terms of top teams but there was something about the newness of the whole gaming thing finally becoming big. Plus organizations weren't so wide spread yet so it had a feeling of being a tighter knit community with knowing more of the players.

I would say towards the end because that's when Markeloff was the best and also that was when people had 10+ years of experience playing the game so the level of players was MUCH higher than in the early days. Edit: Just so you know I'm talking about 2009-2011.
2018-03-17 21:48
2006 was the best. NiP with zet, spawn, walle, potti, ins, heaton fnatic with f0rest and co g5 with neo and co best NA scene with coL Danes in mTw/NoA SK was decent too After that CGS came out and destroyed a lot of good players (zet, frod). 2009 to the end was great too but was pretty much fnatic, SK (f0rest/GTR), g5 (neo), and navi....
2018-03-17 22:53

1.6 was really high after 2005, especially 2006-2009 were crazy years.
2018-03-17 22:56
2004 - 2005 year was the best. Especially the summer and winter CPL's. Guys didn't play 'to stream' or fat contracts. Some of the names in the 2005 CPL Winter event SK, NiP, Astralis, Team 3D, fnatic, g3x, complexity, mTw, Lunatic-Hai, MiBR, Mousesports, Evil Genuises, 4Kings, Begrip, United 5. Fucking LEGENDARY!

2004-2007 was pretty dank. All of the top 5-7 teams in the world were capable of winning events or making finals runs during these years. There was also at least one Asian roster that could cause Bo1 upsets and make brackets interesting in 2006 and 2007.

alternate aTTax did some real nutty shit for a while, basically invented the pop flash and dominated with it for 5/6 months but were so strategically ahead the skill gap was just enormous. Lunatic Hai from Korea came out of nowhere for a while, really drilled us all with eastern cs, nobody had ever seen anything like it, literal bots with hacks, well worth looking back at some of their inferno demos for 1.6 4Kings when they were coming up against SK quite regularly was always excellent viewing, they were like Man Utd for a while, drafting in all the best players to try and tip them over the edge, Goodfella, DarK, elemeNt, natu etc The french side emuLate i think it was called got a bit firey for a while, really shit on everyone, just looked like complete hacks but was the foundation for the birth of the modern french scene, again worth watching. EYEBALLERS, say no more, CPL Final Winter 2004 NoA vs EyeBallers They're some of the things I'd take a look at if I didn't know 1.6 too well. I could give you much greater known examples.
