HeatoN is the manager of NiP, he probably still has contact to all of the previous NiP players more or less.
We live in a world with facebook and shit. Not that hard to gather 5 people anymore :) maybe they also got offered something from it, who knows.
Im not talking about what bialy said but about what actually YOU said. You basically think every Pole is retarded, whole country is retarded etc etc and you've probably never been to Poland or never talked to Pole in real life.
Hm actually the smartest guy i know in real life is polish so no, I dont think every pole is retarded ;) I do think tho that 50% of the pole kids who use this website are parcially retarded. Just like 30% of the swedes.
Let's be realistic. Forest and gtr are two of the best 1.6 players ever, and they haven't stopped playing so they still have all of their skill.
Xizt and friberg are good Riflers too, fiff will be a bullet sponge like in csgo
2013 will take both games easily if they actually try
will definitely tune in for the 1.6 match, not sure about GO. They are all legends of the previous game so... itll be more entertaining. Especially if you were around for those times. CS 1.6 at its peak in 2005 probably! Finding scrims on mIRC all day long ;)
I would give anything to see old nip win both 1.6 and counter-strike go
But in my opinion both teams are pointing to win the 1.6 games to show everyone who is the king,because everyone know which one is the most played game.
if anyone can contact them.. tell them to put the mipmap detail on quality on the gfx card driver settings... 1.6 looks AWEFUL compared to the standard 1.6 everyone is used to.... fucking stupid production as always
dude, these 5 guys haven't played on a competitive level for like 7 (or even more) years.
during that time f0rest, GTR and Xizt played on a daily basis and became some of (or even the) best players in the world.
even playing GO instead of 1.6 is still better than play (almost) no CS
your logic would only make sense if NiP 2005 would play like in their prime. than it would become a 5vs3.
cz models, no cameras on players, setting up the stream whilst it is live, no preparation for the stream, no heads up display, no idea on the console commands, no one helping them, getting ddos because everyone hates the production
such a fail, i hope atleast its a tight competitive match
im only reiterating what the casters themselves repeat over and over... that the show stream is unprofessional and all those things make it professional bro
and yes, incredibly itchy, it goes red too, want too see?
On top of that, although I don't entirely dislike the way the casters are dealing with the issues, I must say, considering how much of an event this is with so many people tuning in and 1.6 legends going at it again, the casters could be better prepared.
I mean, Anders, seriously. The next time you go and cast an once in a life time event with some of the most accomplished CS players ever playing, people that are part of making the game and the scene what it is today, please do some homework and talk people through the players and their histories, instead of talking about how beautiful sweden is - which it certainly is, but I don't think 30k people are tuning in for that.
omg, these commentators are horrible, 10-15 maps on cs:go? dude, players dont event have a perfect control of recoil, you already talks about more maps. If 1.6 whould have 10 maps, then it would be understandable and smart thing
isn't hltv's fault necessarily, its the production crew (doesn't look like they even have one) at IOL- but if its a showmatch with this poor stream then they might aswell just put a live HLTV IP on that everyone can watch from... its showmatch so no need for money or sponsors surely, people just want to watch the game.
and plus if its HLTV that people can watch from, there is no chance of ddos or any other shit happening
Ofcourse not, they're also not playing as smart or as good as they normally would. Didn't you see the terrorist half of old NiP? No strats, just run and gun.
15-14 and they run ONE TAC and they 5-0 the round.
It's just for entertainment, I'm sure the new NiP would play alot better if it was a serious match.
CS:GO was my first game, but this, this is amazing...people are almost like re-living their favorite game from times of old.
Old NiP still got it 1.6 blood in them, so amazing.
Man, I wish I had played CS1.6 years ago.
Holy shit this is amazing.
You must be fucking retarded. Did your mother abandon you as a child?
I bought CS1.6 for $2.49 during the Steam summer sale.
I've got not even 2 hours in the game.
When CS1.6 was popular I was in elementary school.
People say they want CS:GO to grow but then every time someone new comes along and says one bad thing about it they assume the person is a 1.6 fanboy, what the fuck, really
You proved nothing, I just linked my game history to prove it.
It says 1.8 hours in Counter-Strike, you moron.
No way I'd ever buy a game twice on separate accounts, that Steam account is my one and only.
You're not trolling. Try again, 12 year old.
The fact your first reply to me was full of such hate and you wrote an entire paragraph to prove me wrong, does in fact prove you are lying. The fact you have Valve sucks in your name also proves you are lying.
Why would valve suck to you if it was your first cs game? If you think valve sucks, it means you think csgo sucks, and if you think csgo sucks you would not be here, as a new player who believes valve sucks would not sign up to a community website about the game they are not enjoying.
Just give it up, my logic is sound, any attempt on your part to dispute this will make you look even more silly.
Because I fucking hate people like you who randomly hate on new players.
What do I gain from pretending to be new to CS anyway? Why the hell would anyone do that? CS:GO was my first CS game and that's that. If you don't want to accept the truth go ahead and be delusional.
Valve sucks to me because of the February pistol update fucking pu pistol balance. Valve sucks because of the Arms Deal update, where they added a completely unnecessary feature and added some bullshit "silenced" guns that have too little ammo and are inferior to both the M4A4 and AK47.
I signed up for HLTV because I want to follow the news scene, and despite the fact that CS:GO is not getting the fixes it needs I still like it.
If I really were pretending I'd probably drop the facade by now.
But I'm not. I'm not a 1.6 player.
now f0rest and GTR stopped giving fifflaren and friberg the opportunities (like waiting in eco so they can make the spray frags).
btw: why didn't old NiP just plant in the pistol-round? why did they go ladder-room?
The game of the century.
I haven't seen this kind of action and intenseness in so many years.
It brings up emotion and feelings that no other sport or game can induce.
I hope all of you guys, old and new ones, are having a great time!
