Nice find. Wonder where those users are now :D
Am i gonna dissapear like those guys?
I sometimes forget how old this site is, kudos to all admins in keeping up this site after nearly 2 decades. My brother used hltv around 2008-09,though Gotfrag was the more popular forum. I even remember some of the users like liquidmotion,etc. Wonder what they all are doing now.
It's a true testament to how much this website has changed. :) Also bear in mind this website isn't akin to the original website, so it won't be possible to find the really old HLTV stuff because that will be locked to an older version of this website.
As for how far back you can do, it depends on how far down the rabbit hole you are willing to go. Only the admins of the website will be able to locate what you are trying to find, as they will have access to the archives we do not.
