cs 1.6 why nobody plays it
United States beatmaker 
because nobody wants to buy a private server to host real 10 mans. because nobody wants to use a IRC program to get ringers and scrims going because nobody wants to play a game with no competitive scene like in csgo because nobody has actually skill top play cs 1.6 because they can be a random fuck in csgo and get credited for it. because everyone wants to press a button to play a shitty mm system where everyone trolls and hacks every game. because everyone wants skins and skins that are worth $400 to brag unlike in cs 1.6 cs 1.6 was the best game but it was once a game about scrimming and hosting 10mans and actually get to know people who were good compared to know where everyone presses a button and actually think being global elite think they are a pro.

valve can add real matchmaking system to cs 1.6
2018-12-31 00:36
yeah i also thought of that, would be no problem for them. On the other hand i also wondered why faceit would make a Classic Offensive mod MM instead of just making a real 1.6 MM

It actually would be a problem for them, they would need to host servers on a completely dead game which doesn't bring them any profit anymore.
2019-01-28 11:48
bro they for some time hostet Counter Strike Classic Offensive servers and when we finally found a lobby the game didnt start cuz their wasnt a server automatically assigned to our match. The lobby lead wrote faceit support and they said they haven't the capacity at that time XD

They were full since it was new. Now people went back to go.

imagine if 1.6 and source had the same mm system. i would install cs instantly.
2018-12-21 21:42
mm was the worst thing to ever happen in cs.
2018-12-21 21:44
not really
2018-12-21 23:00
i mean if your a casual player is make sense why u want it..but scrimming is the proper way to play counter strike.

You do know you can actually do scrims in csgo too right? You're not forced to go matchmaking.
2018-12-21 23:47
how buying esea where people judge u off pug stats and ranks to even make a shitty scrim team to scrim but people rage quit and go pug instead.
2018-12-22 00:01
No, but in hidden facebook groups and hidden discord servers. That's where you find the real scrims.
2018-12-31 00:42
not for na...maybe for eu.
2018-12-31 00:43
Didn't reliaze you were from NA. Would'nt have thought about it being different anyway. But it's all invite groups so it's not a place you just walk through the door. So you still have a point in your previous comment: Where the fuck do you prove yourself and your team? =D
2018-12-31 00:45
2019-01-01 10:59
No ones really scrims in NA anymore since Rank S / FPL. 10 mans aren't popular because everyone wants to play on client. Even the top teams rarely even scrim each other. It isn't like 1.6 where teams actually wanted to practice and truly improve. Even if you found a team that actually wanted to properly practice, you probably won't even get a scrim unless you are playing at a higher level. The NA scene is stale and breeds braindead puggers who think that stats mean everything which is why you have like 1 new player hit the scene every few months that can actually play the game meaningfully in a team role. No one cares about proving their team anymore, it's all about proving themselves. This is the environment Valve / ESEA / FACEIT essentially created.

This 100%. It was the same when WoW has introduced automatic group finders for dungeons and then raids. Communities rely on continuity of relationships between their members and when you remove this aspect by matching players on demand, without the need for their effort to act accordingly to how they want to be seen as a member in a persistent community, the incentive to act in a reasonable, civil way is almost nonexistent. Automatic matching tools are, IMHO, the most destructive feature of any game's community.

2018-12-21 23:48
2018-12-30 19:25
First of all, 2000, second of all, it only was released as a seperate game in 2000, but was a mod of half life since 1999, hence people saying it's around from 1999
2018-12-30 21:29
1.6 was released in 2003, noob
2018-12-30 21:47 Click on any article, and read what it says.
2018-12-30 21:49
What year did CS 1.6 come out? It was initially developed and released as a Half-Life modification by Minh "Gooseman" Le and Jess Cliffe in 1999, before Le and Cliffe were hired and the game's intellectual property acquired. Counter-Strike was released by Valve on the Microsoft Windows platform in 2000. Tfw when you try to pretend to be an oldschooler but you don't know jack shit
2019-01-01 00:18
1.6 is not 1.0

2019-01-27 11:25
You stupid scrub. Cs went from beta 1.0 up to at least 7.1 if i remember correctly before going to full release versions of 1.0 up to 1.6. So stfu and stop googling shit and acting like you were there. 1.6 was 2003 like the man said. All versions were enormously different. Awp had an unscoped cross hair that hit where u aimed precisely. Bet u didnt know that. Bet u didnt know that m4 was a 30 bullet silenced WITH A SCOPE when it was launched either. Stupid kid.

I’ve been running a 10 man 5v5 pug for like a year now. Can’t ever get people who want to play it. Servers are dirt cheat if you want to rent them. Also can just run them from home. If I could get enough people in and find some people to help line running a website etc Id be totally down for running seasons and stuff.
2018-12-27 06:52
I've been struggling to host a server for a few years now and I'm still confused. When you host a server do you pick the 'dedication server' option on your host or the hoster is specifically designed for hosting games? I had an american who help me create ESEA in my country for awhile and to this day I still don't know how he did it.
2018-12-27 08:43
Well you can rent a server which is by the far quickest and easiest. Costs like .99 cents a slot now so 10 bucks a month for a 10 man. But I’m assuming you’re talking about running HLDS. Half life dedicated server.

I played on one for like 600hrs back in I think 2016 and server was 24/7 full like you had to spam fckn refresh button Server was closed tho in 16/17 or something like that owner didn't want to host it but other guy take over and he ruined it Server is again online since 24th of December but I am not sure if they had 10 matches since Nowadays every other guy is in the cheating not sure if it's worth to play pugs mixes anymore I'm currently working on some kind of anticheat but I'm not very good in pawn so it will take me a bit more than I expected It won't be perfect but better than having 50% cheaters on server

because CSGO is better, they play 1.6 just for the nostalogia
2018-12-27 08:51
CSGO is not a better game. The main reasons are obvious that the movement is terrible in GO. The other is the random of the shots, spread. The reason why is Volvo wanted a large player base. The reason why 1.6 never had as large player base as GO is obviously the time period it came out in but it’s not noob friendly. You got stomped in 1.6 until you had couple hundred hours in. GO you can hop in and sometimes beat a higher skilled player due to the RNG or spread.
2018-12-27 09:04
[X] Doubt
2018-12-30 21:51
That is a seriously flawed statement. In GO you still get stomped until you’ve played the game for a substantial amount of time. I find it ridiculous you’d even say the spread is that bad compared to how big spreads were in 1.6 so I smell some bullshit there. The only aspect of 1.6 to be truly better than GO is the movement of which even I agree is absolute shit compared. However things like improved hitboxes, tickrate, grenades (No more 1 pixel wide nades), and in general more fair and competitive aspects (Looking at you wallbanging) You can say what you want but CS:GO is still a better evolution of CS, the number of players don’t lie, just because they made it less exclusive to play doesn’t immediately make it not take skill and therefore be a shit game.
2019-01-25 14:10
CSGO should of just been a 100% port of 1.6. The reason why it’s not, it is wouldn’t be as popular. It had to made more soft core so it could have a larger player base.
2018-12-27 10:09
+1 cs 1.6> csgo sadly we will have to wait for another game that could take this same skill of real cs
2018-12-27 11:29
1.6 fell off far before CSGO even came out. It was never about the game's difficulty or matchmaking or skins. I don't know how you could honestly say that if you were actively playing in NA during 2006-2010.

Yeah, the original CS lasted on the pro scene from 1999 to 2012, with no matchmaking, no ranking/elo system, no money from valve at all, no skin system (believe or not it was all about the fun)... this shows how awesome that game was. Without all these things and it was the king of FPS for so long. The gameplay of CS 1.6 IS STILL unmatched, far superior than CSGO.

2018-12-30 19:27
do you even know what bandwagon means lmao
2018-12-30 19:41
bandwagon means jumping on the rave of something because everyone thinks its good.hense where you said "i've played it a long time ago, it's just not as (good), you probably just hop on the (bandwagon) to say it's the (best FPS). which is wrong because i literally played cs 1.5 and cs 1.6 longer then ive played csgo because the game really doesnt appeal to me and the community also doesnt appeal to me at im not bad at csgo but the game in general is just wack as fuck to me.i grew up on a cs by scrimming and playing in leagues unlike csgo where your forced to play pugs and mm and join mediocre teams of people who dont have the slighest clue on how to play cs because csgo is their first cs game.
2018-12-30 19:49

what is here to prove? >because nobody has actually skill top play cs 1.6 because they can be a random fuck in csgo and get credited for it. csgo random? and 1.6 skillfull? lmao proof plz >because everyone wants to press a button to play a shitty mm system where everyone trolls and hacks every game. rofl i play mm often and don't have problems like this >because everyone wants skins and skins that are worth $400 to brag unlike in cs 1.6 thats your opinion not fact -2/8

when you know what you're talking about, and a game is shit, you are able to annihilate it in a short post. but here is you complaning about hitboxes and crossahir (lol), and using vague terms like "classic gameplay", without being able to clearly and efficiently explain what exactly is wrong with the game. if you actually played it, you would know hitboxes worked fine. important note is valve has been destroying 1.6 with updates since the release of csgo, i see you only played (not rly played, fucked around in mods and hlae) it since 2013.

You are wrong just like always. 1) I did not start playing since 2013, I started playing this game a lot earlier, but not on STEAM. I will not be surprised if i have way over 5000 hours in it. 2) Of course i would be complaining about it, it made classic completely unplayable. If i started counting everything wrong with this old game, the list would be simply too long for an HLTV reply. 3) I am sure i am way more experianced then you when it comes to both versions of the game.

You sir are really stupid. First it would be a retarded mistake by you to comment something like that before reading the previous responses.

When somebody has 5k+ hours and he says he spent most of them in mods, he still spent at least 1.5k-2k playing the classic.
2019-01-27 14:28

So, you came here to argue with me. 1.6 compared to cs:go has a shit crosshair, hitboxes are crap, SGS in classic/competative mode ruins the game, wallbangs ruin the game, the movement of the crosshair is just bad, it has sooo many glitches, nades are just stupid, the community is full with mainly kids who don't have a PC good enough for a real game like cs:go, Spray and pray ( I believe there were 12 differnet spray patterns for every weapon, causing randomness), The first shot accuracity is ridiculous, almost no good maps to train your aim and become better, no ranks.

I don't suck. When you spend 5000+ hours and you say uou spent most of them in mods, you still have spent at least 2k in classic. The game is broken, its pure garbage, unplayable

The fact the you call it classic, makes me believe you suck. Its ok. Cs is hard.

Cs 1.6 has been of the greatest games of all time. But released 15 years back, how Do you still expect that involvement of gamers in it? Earlier there weren't many games but now there are literally countless ones having better gameplay/stories....fallana fallana And don't compare the two games cs go and 1.6, though people might say it's a dead game, it is still prevelant in many areas. Many inter school events are held in 1.6 still now.

I still play automix to this date. I enjoy playing with company of chill matured guys only found in 1.6 servers. CsGO community is absolute trash. Mostly toxic ragers.

I still play 1.6 to this day and I'll never be able to stop playing it I feel... :) The newer generation of CS unfortunately will never have the pleasure of experiencing the nostalgia of organised scrims, 10-mans, mIRC/Ventrilo, old flash/smoke lobs (off-screen flashing), etc... To this day, the game I've spent the most time playing... from 2002 to this day. :)

It's always "Choose a side CS 1.6 or CS:GO" and the community just generally shits on CS:GO. Just because CS:GO is more inclusive to a more unskilled demographic does not mean it cannot be an intense skill based game, in fact it is still a very skill based game with great mechanics. I'd say the skill ceiling (While limited by the poor movement) flies far above the skill ceiling in CS 1.6 because it revolves so heavily around aim and now especially positioning and tactics more than it ever has. CS:GO has objectively better mechanics too: Grenades: No 1 pixel nade throws, Better mass use of nades because of better physics, More utility behind nades. Wallbanging: No longer do you have maps like Nuke where the map is more just spamming through a wall than anything, you've got to actually risk yourself and be a better player to kill players. Wallbanging could be skill based but generally this was an amazing change. Nerfed AWP: Now as much as I loved the AWP as it was, it's a far more fair game to play when you don't have people moving that quickly with a 1 shot weapon walking around. It wasn't as bad in 1.6 but it still is pretty broke compared to what we have now. Better Hitboxes: Also speaks for itself, a common evolution the game has simply gotten better models and registration that 1.6 has. Better Tickrate: We consistently have higher tick rate and FPS than they did in 1.6 days. I could definitely go on but I'm too lazy. Stop letting nostalgia blind you, the game's age shows in more ways than just it's graphics. You can be as mad as you want and blame CS:GO as much as you want for your failures but that won't take away that it is a great if not better game than CS 1.6 and has just as much skill and fun involved.
