Shut up, before 1.6 had another CS that they used to call 1.5 I played it too, so I started the same way, at lan houses here in Brazil, in 2001

A friend gave me the cd, but I didn't have half life. After I got it, my friend went to my home to install it 'because it was complicated'. Then he launched a server with nobody, bought a p90, and said it was the most noob-friendly weapon on the game, that I should try and learn the recoil. For a few weeks it was the only weapon I was gonna play with lol

Back in summer 2007, I was hanging out with some friends, then they went to some cybercafé in the area to play CS 1.6. At the beginning, I didn't like the game but after I got bored and I decided to give it a try. I've been playing CS (1.6 & GO) until 2018.

2020-03-12 17:17
my first cs experience was 1.6 in a club for kids that had too much free time after school, you could pay like 0.2€ for an hour to play on pcs etc

what else could you do there? or pay for? I'm curious

various events were hosted there, you could learn how to paint, pottery etc. then you could just watch tv, play table tennis etc. for free

it was like government-provided? and you could choose what activity you would engage?
2020-03-12 17:43
I guess the city was paying for most of the things there, since the only thing you paid there were the PCs and even for those we usually just paid for 1 hour and spent like 3 hours there lol so it wasn't really sustainable. the events that were hosted there were organized by people who were teaching there etc. I suppose - they would then get some money from the participants and the club would only provide them with a place to host it, for some % of what they make I guess. Now they demolished the building and built something else, not sure what it is, I rarely go that way anymore.

dude I didn't remember gamespy rofl it was not good in my country for cs, but I used it for years for other games
2020-03-12 17:30
it was pretty much necessary for CS here in the US, unless i was doing it wrong?? i remember initially trying to find servers through the game client, but i didn't have much success. my older brother was the one who told me that i had to use GameSpy, and sure enough it worked :)

tbh I don't remember how it worked here. I think I would only play against bots for at least a couple of years, and vs humans on lan every weekend. maybe I used gamespy for some period to find matches too, don't know these times there was no competitive games around here, most played casual
2020-03-12 17:33
o yea, it was all casual for me back then. i remember hearing about "1337 Clan" and some other bigger ones lol but yea, it was just casual play back then.... i only had 56k internet, so it wasn't exactly easy to play multiplayer, but it was still a lot of fun. that was like 2000? maybe 2001? can't fully remember

2020-03-12 17:42
I first saw csgo on the national Finnish tv channel in 2014 when there was the final of the biggest lan tournament in Finland. I didnt really care about it so i didnt download it but a couple months later i saw one of my favourite youtubers playing it so i decided to play it.

my cousin played the earliest versions back in the early 2000s, then my brother and another cousin started playing 1.6 in 2006 and later source and go (together with some guys who are now top swedish pros), so i've been around cs to some extent almost my entire lifetime, didn't get into it myself until 2013-2014 when the first majors were played. still, i don't think there's a single swedish male born in the 90s who hasn't at least tried cs

I enjoyed watching the games but didn't know the layout of the maps. It was difficult to follow the show when the viewpoint changed all the time. So I got the game and ran around the maps to get a better idea of the game. Then I found n00b friends to start playing with.

I was probably about 5 or 6, my neighbour came to our house to install cs1.3 with the tutorial version and you needed a 'cd-key', you have to go up the elevator and the plant the bomb. This was crazy because I would never play this version again and lost in my memory how on earth there was ever a cs tutorial or single player mod. I always wanted a cs single player, sadly it never came. cz:zero doesn't count lol

Saw a youtube recommendation about one of FaZe's csgo matches in early 2017. (It was the IEM katowice 2017 final vs Astralis) Watched it, thought the game looked fun, bought it, hated it for 3 months because I thought the aiming system was stupid. But then 3 after that when i learned how to click heads i found the game extremely addicting and fun to play.

played 1.6 in da libary
2020-03-12 20:10
1 Argentinian Peso = 1 Hour at the Cybercafe , they had HL , Gta 3 , and CS , this is 2002 so the version must have been 1.3 because i played that cs before GTA Vice City came out. Ever since i've been hooked, peaked in 2009 in 1.6 , barelly played afterwards in 2010 and 2011 which is when the last wave of newfags came in. GO i didn't even play for a while cuz it was trash, i never liked Source and GO beta and 2012 looked like Source and BF3 retarded child , i was told they fixed go in 2014 so i gave it a shot, i had been following the scene and then i peaked in 2015 but i wasn't that good ever in GO , i was barelly mediocre in 1.6 to be frank. Only been LEM and unranked for most of the time, first rank Silver 1, Faceit lvl 4, i just dont have the drive to play that much anymore, i rater play singleplayer games.
