I watch amazing moments from mayor events i think oh is that it, thats definately gold nova master not just any gold nova 3 play
skill in cs 1.3 was even higher
But shooting in 1.6 is really awful.
I know many people impressed by todays pros ofcourse there are some nice plays from them. But people who would say i cant beat todays pros are same people who get angry when they meet higher ranked players :) its not that hard to become pro if you find best opponents in the world
This is your brain on nostalgia.
the skill ceiling between 1.6 and go is incomparable
Idk about 1.6 but I find source very easy after playing GO.
No scoping was way easier in 1.6, miss those days on awp_india
The physics of 1.6 was different; nevertheless the skill is much higher now and I think most if not all pro's would agree. Micro-improvements over time add up. Performance is always moving toward the most optimal possible because that's what competition does.
why people forget 1.6 was a different game altogether .. different movement , no mollies , different flashes and smokes , different spray , different awps and the players got smarter the more they played so there is less of chance to make the same plays
NO DISRESPECT TO 1.6 Legends !!!
no lol 1.6 players were never good.
look how poorly they all perform in csgo
clearly the younger players nowadays are miles ahead of what the older players can ever achieve
bro back in my days soldiers who fought in ww2 had more skill than cs 1.6 players
people say don't get angry, don't give a fuck but look at this guy, "1.6 had more skill than csgo". Are you fucking retarded? How can that be possible? It's like saying flying a fighter jet nowadays is way easier than those ww2 shit planes? Like the fuck? people are getting dumber and dumber each fucking day
And by the way people who say cs go are better players was not possible in cs 1.6 to hit shot all over map in cs go is absolutely normal for that to happen pretty weird if you miss actually.
cs 1.5, 1.6 days :(
My childhood in a gaming parlor with 32 players all in one server on lan. playing poolday, aztec , dust2, prodigy , iceworld awp_india ;)
Every word u typed in your thread is true. +1 CS 1.6 > CSGO
Cs1.6 is not harder than csgo, it feels like you guys never actually went back and played cs1.6 recently.
HeatoN wasn't even top100 in 1.6
can people please stop making these boomer threads
Objective opinion from a long-time 1.6 player and now CSGO.
In terms of raw skill, 1.6 is superior in my eyes. There was way more emphasis on aim and movement skills. That's not to say matches where only aim duels but the level of utility gameplay wasn't as big.
CSGO brought a lot more of a strategic element to gameplay in the name of utility and map design. While I do think that maps were better in the sense that they were way less cluttered and open (i.e inferno), the raised skyboxes of CSGO maps bring a whole new layer of skill that pros must learn. CSGO also made most of the other guns relevant while in 1.6 it was always the same 3 pistols, 4 rifles, and the AWP.
1.6 is a shit game. and i have more than 20k hours played.
1.6 required real skills
No wtf shots, to kill you needed to have skill.
>he's failing nowadays
Because your average players are way better than back then.
Stopped reading after "I think i lost half braincells".
they are the same Game Mode on 2 different Engines
The Movement back then was INSANE. CS:GO is a Joke compared to what was possible
man i wish i would find this Video where a Guy was surfing between the 2 Train Ladders on B.
Imagine compare different games :D
1.6 and GO are connected only by the name and type of the game.
Rest things are similar like guns, maps etc. but they never be the same.
1.6 players must again learn a lot new staff to be pro.
I love both games, but compare is just uselles. (Sory for bad englando)
i feel like the skillcap was much higher in 1.6 since you could be more mobile and use your movement better, it was based on raw skill like Quake. i feel like "noobs" still can be good in CS GO since the skillcap is lower.
but it's hard to compare since GO is more strategic and the maps are very cluttered, it's a complete different game. but playing it online with "lag compensation" etc making me feel the game is kinda broken (feels like the ex_interp-bug in earlier CS-verions) and it's very hard to determine exactly where the footsteps are in CSGO compare to 1.6.
shooting through walls isn't even a thing in CS:GO, i feel like that's were a thing that required a ton of skills (gamesense) and was a largely part in 1.6
retard stuck in the past
any top 1000 csgo player would shit on most top 100 1.6 player
csgo players play way more then 1.6 players
csgo players >>>> 1.6 players
anyone higher in the scene will tell you how flawless even t2 players have to be
What is this stupid ass pasta?
The difference is 1.6 was a far higher individual skilled game.
CSGO is a much higher tactical shooter due to its movement and ulitity usage.
-Wallspamming(no pixel peak awp/shoulder peaks)
-Spray patterns ? I guess GO is easier but you can master both games in time
-models were faster and smaller/maps were wider.
-Sound was much more direct very similar to Valorant.
-Ulitity is the biggest thing in the game, smokes you can one way(no skill) you can smoke defuse(No skill, in 1.6 the bomb light was viable through smokes), Molly the bomb, peak over Molly for vision advantage.
The movement is the most jarring thing about CSGO if it only had better movement it would be such a better game, I just hat3 the smoke gameplay so much it's just so cheap.
This is not to say that the CSGO pros are shit gamers they're probablt better than 90% 1.6 pros if they were to play 1.6 full time, CSGO just limits your individual level.
I would love to see a player like zywoo play 1.6 he would be nuts.
Electronic was pretty damn good in the NAVI showmatch.
In 10 years time you CSGO fans are going to have the same feeling when valve releases their new CS if they fuck it up, the kids who play the new CS will tell you how shit the graphics were, how shit the sprays were etc, CSGO is becoming old news.
1.6 was way more demanding on individual skill, CS Go has watered down mechanics and really over powered grenades that allow you to halt off any aggression or executes to get into really good positions where your skill no longer matters just your timing.... whereas in 1.6 you really had to rely on your mechanical skills, map knowledge, movement, brain etc.
Movement in CS Go is meaningless tbh a good example of that is Pasha, bot movement his entire career in CS Go but was a top awper at tier 1 level consistently for years... if you have bot movement in 1.6 as an awper you will get punished by a good rifler or opposing awper every round. 1.6 has way less margin for error as well, CS Go in the early stages sure it was a shit ass game with random af mechanics that made no sense at the time but the gunplay was just raw, the company they bought CS Go from made a shit game but they got that one thing right and ofc Valve changed it and watered the game down over time for f2p market any noob shitter can go into a pug and shit on every like the Source days it makes the game popular for the casuals.
Cry is free
Fragile 1.6 fan grill
Astralis would 16-0 every single 1.6 team if they were to face off today at their peak skill levels. The average HLTV'er today would be a better player than the average 1.6 pro player back in the day. Thats just how sport works.
Like Bjorn Borg would get humiliated by a today rank 200 tennis player
Maybe 1.6 was the "harder" game but take any pro at their peak from 1.6 and put them against a current pro and they will get destroyed.
Make a claim, show absolutely no evidence in support of your claim, just random ramblings on what streams one watches. /shitthread
CSGO is the harder game and the best CSGO players would completely demolish the best 1.6 players. There is no room for comparison.
cs go has everything better except mouvements and mouvements are a big part of a game, csgo feel like source with 1.6 weapons (sort of ) but 1.6 was way more than just the weapon control, movement were a big part of what make this game way better than source... basically 1.6 needed just new graphic and fixing weapons randomness plus csgo nades and it was the best game ever .. csgo mouvement really feel made by and for noobs
In times of 1.5/1.6 the game was not as hard-focused on strats as it is now.
There were no molotovs and smokes were nearly useless because if you crouched and looked slightly downwards you could see through.
Today, you can play on pro level with "good enough" aim and good understeanding of the game.
In 1.5 and 1.6 you HAD to have godlike aim to be able to make a name for yourself.

0/8, why did navi 2010 get shat on in csgo then while navi 2020 managed to take a map off them in 1.6
even Edward said that cs:go is harder than 1.6 :D
Love to DM in 1.6. Main rifles have unbeatable feeling
Whole thread is dumb. If it was a 1v1 game then sure, but since it is a team game, I am going to have to disagree very much.Hmmm, nades were shit in 1.6. They had way less impact on the game. Also, cs:go puts more emphasis on aim, and less on other things like movement. This also helps with the case that cs:go is a harder game, because so many more guns are viable. cs:go has a valve mm system which means more players player, thus more competition.
One last point, which is the biggest one. If 1.6 was harder, then pros going to this game would still be the best players still. They should have maxed out anything that was hard with cs:go from the start since you think it was harder. Even years after cs:go came out, most players from 1.6 had worse aim than the newer people, so once the new players had game sense it was over.
If you actually used your brain you would have realised that csgo has a higher skill ceiling because;
-more people means fewer% can go to the top level which is basically natural selection and the stronK survive
-and if you watched pro play its more about tactical play and not about just a giant 1v1 aim map
-theres way more pressure on 250k dollar tournaments rather than 20k dollar ones
-also because of the 1st thing there are like no mistakes in pro play for other pros to make a play
These are my arguments waiting for your rebuttal
cs 1.6 is way-way better game in every skill aspect.
Required more skill in every aspect. how? U couldnt be proffesional with 1-2 years playing, while in csgo we have good examples for people who became proffs with 1-2 years of playing and their previous game was Cod, Starcraft or some non-Cs game.
Bytheway CSGO scene is dissaster after 2016.
I didn't play 1.6 much, I played a lot of Source, and still do, they're really similar. And generally, I must say, that both 1.6 and Source are much, so much harder to master than GO. CS:GO was intentionally made casual player friendly, the spray patterns are easy and always static, movement is smooth and well handled. One thing is truly better in GO is the hitreg, both 1.6 and Source had a terrible one, you'd often see a blood stain but no hits ever recorded. But shooting, by far, very very far was harder in 1.6 and Source and it's not even remotely close.
