markeloff: Don't want to play CS:GO

June 15th, 2012 13:17

In our second interview ahead of DreamHack Summer 2012 we talk with Yegor "markeloff" Markelov from Natus Vincere, touching about the trip and experience playing Counter-Strike: Online in the K1 League, as well as the upcoming tournament in Jönköping.

As the only foreign team, Natus Vincere went to Shanghai to take part in the Counter-Strike: Online K1 League. Markelov takes us through the experience of K1 League, talking about the game and the fact that the Ukrainian team did not pass the group stage.

In the second part of the interview with talk with Markelov about the upcoming DreamHack Summer tournament, where Natus Vincere will be up against fnatic and Moscow Five in the group stage.

For those who have not seen, heard or read about Counter-Strike: Online, tell us about the game.

If I'm not mistaken, CS:O is a new game as close as possible like CS 1.6 but with some modifications and differences. There are a lot of new guns, game modes, online shop(in-game). All the servers are online. And the biggest problem in this game there are no rates at all… Which means you play with rate 7500 cl_cmdrate 30 and cl_updaterate 30

Can the game be compared to any other Counter-Strike titles it looks like 1.6.

Like I said before, it's really similar to CS 1.6 but with less of console commands.

The game is specifically targeted for the Asian market, while it's not really known to anyone in the Western part of the world. Do you feel you were able to transfer your skills as an individual and as a team, from 1.6 to CS: Online?

Easy. There is no huge difference with CS 1.6. And if creators of CS:O will change the things that we told them it will be an awesome game.

markeloff sightseeing in Shanghai during K1 League

While you tested the game for the first time two days before your first matches in the K1 league, the Chinese teams had plenty of time to get used to the game. How did you experience this, did they know tricks that caught you off guard?

Actually they don't play CS:O either, they love CS 1.6 more. So the most of Chinese teams played new CS not more than we did.

Having seen your post on the social medias, I have to ask. How powerful is the bazooka and is it useful at all?

I've never played with bazooka or any other new weapon. But I saw it… it's really imbalanced but so funny.

Are there any other weapons in the game that you don't find in 1.6?

There are a lot of new weapons like launcher, fire thrower, bazookas, new pistols, shotguns and much more. But gladly we played tournament mode without new guns.

You won 10-4 against MI5 and 18-12 against HiQi in your first matches. To the trained tournament eye, the results seem a bit weird, tell us how a match in the K1 league is played.

Everything is very simple. In the first half of the game a team should win 9 rounds (9-1, 9-6 or even 9-8) if you do so in the second half you need to gain +1 round then your opponent won 1st half. The rules were a bit weird. Roundtime was 2 mins and c4timer 45 seconds.

You ended up winning four matches and losing two. Losses against MI5 and E/Teng meant a three-way tie. The scoring system in K1 meant that the two Chinese teams advanced. What is your opinion about the system used, considering how matches can have a very different end result?

It's tournament rules and you can’t nothing to do with that, but it's a bit unfair to count round difference w/ using such a strange system. The fairest way to decide the winner is to play consolidation games.

Natus Vincere with the K1 League organizers

When you guys found out you had been eliminated, what feelings did you have towards the K1 experience?

Honestly? I was happy that we won't come back here for 14 more days to play semi-finals and finals. But on the other hand we were really sad that we lost… It's always said. And of course we really appreciated K1 staff who invited us and did everything they can to make our staying comfortable. So big thanks to them!

You've now been back in Ukraine for ten days. How have you been spending your time, considering DreamHack Summer is starting next week.

I had 3-4 days of vacation after China at Azov Sea with my friends before start practicing to DH.

The word is you guys have been playing a lot since the return, how badly do you want to win DreamHack?

Winning is everything! So we really want to win DreamHack Summer. By the way, we have never ever won Summer Cup in Jönköping.

markeloff really wants to win the summer edition of DreamHack

Looking at your group, you will face fnatic and Moscow Five, as well as a BYOC team. What sort of expectations do you have, based on previous results against fnatic and Moscow Five?

There are only top level teams at DH this year, so it will be really hard to win it. We don't have any chance to make a mistake. But still, if you want to win a tournament it really doesnt matter who you play against - fnatic, M5 or any other. We are ready to win against any of them. The only one who can stop us - is ourselves!

Based on previous year's at DreamHack, the tournament this time has less teams and a smaller amount of prize money. How do you feel about the fact focus is shifted towards other games?

We are going there not for the money, only title of DH Summer 2012 matters. Every one knew that sooner or later it will happen. There're lot of new games that more popular for eSport community like Dota2, SC2, LoL and others.

There has been a lot of mixed opinions about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and the possibility of it replacing 1.6 for all majors. Has the opinion about the game changed within the team, since playing it the first time?

Haven't played it yet since updates and don't want to!

While there is not a whole lot of events scheduled, GameGune will take place next month, can we expect you guys to make the trip again this year?

Of course we will attend this great tournament. First of all I really want to win it! I have never win it before - two bronzes and a 4th place... Secondly, it's one of my favorite cities in whole world. Thirdly, KOKOXILY cafe or smth like that! its japanese place there you can eat every thing you can or cant for 15 euro, its just perfect!

Markelov and Natus Vincere will play their first match at DreamHack Summer 2012 at 14:00 on Sunday, when facing off against Moscow Five.

yeah buddy fk this shitty game...

Dota2 is so fun right now, plus these kind of streamers make this game even better :p, good to see that some of the cs community are also there :p
2012-06-16 09:33

2012-06-16 23:03

+1 for me too .. it`s like a f*****g combination of COD and some other s**t..... the developers of cs:go missed the most important factor of cs 1.6 ... that is the gameplay and the skill required to play 1.6
2012-06-16 14:23
lmao noob 1.6 noobs cant adapt to cs go higher skillcap. spraying is piss easy in cs 1.6 compared to cs go... same as tapping and shit... so l2p and go back to your minecraft 1.6 low fag

2012-06-15 14:31
I heard that ESC said these words "We would rather play LoL then CS:GO" I dont know maybe i am wrong that is only wath i heard.
2012-06-15 14:57
you are right thats what they said..
2012-06-16 13:40
neo: Hard to say. It seems to me that there is a possibility, if it passes a few changes to the game and will be more interesting. I must admit that, and so it looks better and better. Sure we all keep our fingers crossed that there was no lime!
2012-06-15 14:23
Nobody with brain want to play CS:GO !
2012-06-15 13:20
So what u wana say, everyone who playing it have no brains? Jeez lad relax and less hate to the game... and people who probbly like it or dont will find their way by them self.
2012-06-15 23:26
less hate?! That game is killing 1.6 and this shit is like CoD or BF but 10x worst...
2012-06-15 23:41
who told u that cs:go is killing 1.6 ??? I dont think that, only who can kill 1.6 are 1.6 community who are crying making threads for last 4 months about 1.6 dead and blablabla
2012-06-16 00:01
open your eyes Valve want to kill 1.6...
2012-06-16 00:10
valve is trying to make new replacement for oldish 1.6 but its not very succesfull so far, and thats just because they ignoring 1.6 pro players, and if they realy would want to kill it believe me they would done it like with DotA 1 replacing it with DotA2 and make 2 TI tournaments with prizepoll 1.6 mil... There is few players who are still in DotA but most of them allready move to DotA2 100% and same would be with 1.6...

2012-06-15 13:21
Kudos to markeloff for saying his honest opinion. Guess its only GeT_RiGhT who really wants to play it, yet only feedback he has given in the pro forums (based on lurppis twitter) is asking if they will add cl_minmodels.
2012-06-15 13:21
It's obvious, he's good at it, he has good chances to be a pro i CS:GO too, so why not.
2012-06-15 13:23
The whole SK team not only gtr f0rest has been playing a lot too.
2012-06-15 13:25
Dont believe everything they tell you on Cadred.
2012-06-15 13:29
What does cadred has to do with this ? I haven't even once visited that website.
2012-06-15 13:38
you must have heard it from somewhere i do not think you have them in friends and check what they play...
2012-06-16 13:43
If you watch streams sometimes from CS players sometimes they play CSGO and most of the time get_right and forest are there playing.
2012-06-16 13:45
So first NOT sk gaming(as you said), it is just forest and get right who have been playing it and they have not been playing it ALOT(as you said) they have tried it a few times just like other pros have.. apart from these you were right..
2012-06-16 13:54
You're wrong its only f0rest and GeT_RiGhT who plays alot.
2012-06-15 15:39
He want's to make it better then it is so it could be the new CS because 1.6 is dying, that's why he gives feedback etc
2012-06-15 13:25
Give me a break? A player like GeT_RiGhT should be capable of doing better feedback/help than ONLY asking if they plan on doing cl_minmodels.
2012-06-15 13:29
You dont think he talks directly to the game developers?
2012-06-15 13:43
In the forums mabye. But I'd guess he has some other ways to communicate with the developers for sure.
2012-06-15 15:41
So cl_minmodels is all we need?
2012-06-15 13:40
2012-06-16 13:44

2012-06-15 13:25
americans... always like such nerd-games like SOURCE and that shitty CS:GO. ZOMG. WHY?!
2012-06-15 13:27
Obviously you are just a troll but I will say this anyway. I don't like source and have no intention of playing CS:GO. Nice try though. Also ... isn't the source scene strong in EU? Same with COD ... hmm
2012-06-15 13:31
2012-06-15 13:42
That has nothing to do with my comment... but ok?
2012-06-15 13:51

2012-06-15 14:46
Can someone post the phrase where he said he dont wnat to play csgo?? . He says its really similar to cs 1.6 and with modifications it will be awesome !! Lol why should he play cs:go as it is highly doubtful if they will ever win (lets open the gates to the world outside cs community) !!
2012-06-15 13:29
There has been a lot of mixed opinions about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and the possibility of it replacing 1.6 for all majors. Has the opinion about the game changed within the team, since playing it the first time? Haven't played it yet since updates and don't want to!
2012-06-15 13:30
aah , but the way he talks later is actually praising the game...those words dont really make sense compared to his following statements :@
2012-06-15 13:43
he was praising CS:O (Counter-Strike: Online), another mod of CS, not CS:GO
2012-06-15 15:50
OH my GOD! Keep reading the news and DO NOT stop until you have read it 20 times maybe then you will grasp the point of it..
2012-06-16 13:49
oh okay thank you for opening my eyes .
2012-06-16 16:03
I am really happy to have helped you!
2012-06-16 18:12
he was talking about CS: ONLINE, not about CS: GO
2012-06-15 13:44
wtf ... 1. He was talking about CS:Online when he said " its really similar to cs 1.6 and with modifications". 2. Here you got your phrase: "Haven't played it yet since updates and don't want to!" 3. Why is it highly doubtful they would ever win something in CS:GO?
2012-06-15 13:45
oh CS:O iforgot about that game.. i remember, some korean shit right... anyways about NAVI in CS:GO i really doubt...Its a totally different game engine... There will be a big difference between Mark of 1.6 an Mark of CS:GO if u play him in both games..
2012-06-16 11:05
I think Yegor, you can put your experience even in that retarded CS:GO! ;p
2012-06-15 13:29

2012-06-15 13:29

2012-06-16 03:52

2012-06-15 13:31
this is what I mean, now a lot the players gonna say " Don't want to play CS:GO " and for me is a good choice, CS 1.6 or nothing i don't know who are try to kill CS 1.6 if is Valve, IEM or WCG. NEVER PLAY CS:CRAP MY FRIENDS !!
2012-06-15 13:32

Like Markeloff said, CS 1.6 is going to die out eventually, even if CS:GO will fail. You can't play such a old game forever, new games are coming up fast. Also the Sponsors and Organizers don't care what few popular players are saying. They can always find new players willing to play new games, that's how the world works. There are also players like Starix, who don't really care what they play as long as it brings in cash.
2012-06-15 13:40
Maybe you have a little reason about "They can always find new players willing to play new games" but and the other hand we have a big community on CS 1.6 and is very hard kill a game like CS 1.6 and try to put another game like CS:GO, for me this is a big Mistake from Sponsors and Organizers and they know it

2012-06-15 13:42
2012-06-15 13:54
How? All he stated that he did not want to play CS:GO, CS 1.6 is dead anyways (Within half a year I am guessing there wont be any more major tournaments left).

Did you all played a little bit CSGO recently? It's not so bad as you think. For me it's better than CSS. You will never get new 1.6. Maybe you should just calm down. It is only a game. All new fps sucks badly and if you compare to them CSGO it is quite good. Why you can't play both games? You all want to be proffesional CS 1.6. players? ... yeah... sure.I like 1.6 mostly, but CSGO is better than CSS and its quite fun. before hate, just give it a try. Srlsly? you will not play this game because somebody said you to don't play it? wtf...
2012-06-15 14:00
Yes, i play couple of times CS:GO, man this game sucks, is not Counter Strike is another thing, if you want to play it, OK GOOD FOR YOU
2012-06-15 14:05
But did you play recently? it was really bad on a start of beta. Its better than CSS, really. I dont said that it is 10/10. But alternatives? Only 1.6. New good fps ? Nope... there is nothing (Call of duty <- rofl). I'm waiting for shootmania but... it is different a lot. It not that bad to, I think its ok to play it for a while and have fun.
2012-06-15 14:12
Dude, my case is a little bit difference, because i play CS 1.6 seriously, i meant i,m not very skilled player, but i have a decent level, and i play on tournaments, so i'm too old to try learn another game like CS:GO, i don't want play it for fun.

btw. I had early beta access to csgo. First impression was: "WTF is that shit?!" but there was a loooot of updates and now its much better. "Haven't played it yet since updates and don't want to!" So, he just don't know what he is talking about. Try, than you can give a opinion.
2012-06-15 14:06

Man, CS:Source is so much better than can that be better than 1.6?
2012-06-15 14:17
after a lot updates CSGO is much better than CSS. I was never able to play CSS. 1.6 is much better.
2012-06-15 14:31
In CS:S you aren't restricted when it comes to movement, the recoil isn't random and there's 80% less fog and clutter. CS:S is definitely better than CS:GO, at least for competitions.
2012-06-15 16:07
markeloff:Don't want to play rubbish
2012-06-15 14:17
No organizers will dare to put CS:GO in their game list after those interviews. You can't see any positive words from PROS. Also most of this community didn't like game either. I didn't count CS:S. You won't take cs:go for 1.5k viewers :D
2012-06-15 14:18
Popularity> competitive If CSGO will be more popular there will be tournaments with CSGO. Competitive community is a small % of whole community... for eg. LoL vs Dota. LoL is fkin shitty game, dota more competitive, so what?... deal with it... unfortunately. btw. on WCG now ill be only mobile games? esport have bad condition imo.
2012-06-15 14:36
It's about competive. Do you think casual gamers are following eSports scene? If they do, we should see amazing viewers numbers for 1.6 and source. It's about being popular in competive scene.
2012-06-15 16:31
Fool. Markeloff is just one in a million, how about those other PROS who supports CS:GO? 1.6 is dead, wake up dude.
2012-06-15 15:23
Who are those pros? Tell please. are they in CS:S? OK CS:GO can get 1500 viewers right now!
2012-06-15 16:32
Get_RiGhT, n0thing, da_bears, cArn - those 1.6ers I could think of right now. Also fRoD had this to say: "If CS wants to succeed and stay alive, everyone who plays cs (from 1.6, to source, to even the people who play cz or other beta versions) needs to come together in any new update and support that for the sake of the CS community, regardless of the version you prefer."
2012-06-15 18:09
"Asked about FI Tomi 'lurppis' Kovanen's words on CS:GO and his criticism, Christopher 'GeT_RiGhT' Alesund told he wish he had more time and also shared his thoughts on Konaven's words. " Also they'renot saying it's a good game. They're saying their positive hopes. Valve : "That's what Counter-Strike is: a game of skill. And this is what CS:GO is: an effort to put anyone who has or should play Counter-Strike into the same game. That's a big enough goal but not a grand enough one to merit the name Counter-Strike 2." This'snot an update for CS. It's completely new game. Even nobody should compare go with 1.6
2012-06-15 18:26
??? By update he means new CS game ^_o
2012-06-15 19:02
a new CS game which is better than the old one not as good as like it. That's the update
2012-06-15 19:26

"There are only top level teams at DH this year, so it will be really hard to win it. We don't have any chance to make a mistake. But still, if you want to win a tournament it really doesnt matter who you play against - fnatic, M5 or any other. We are ready to win against any of them. The only one who can stop us - is ourselves!" The words of the king... So smart.

2012-06-15 14:34
i don't understand why they want to eliminate cs1.6 and replace it with cs:go i mean u can make a tournament with cs1.6 and cs:go if ur that desperate to market this shitty game .. but they know that cs1.6 is the best and have the best players and best gifted players of all time and so many people watches it so they need to make a plan to eliminate cs1.6 completely, making no choice for cs1.6 players but to convert against their will to cs:go WTF -_- ... and thanks markeloff you are the king <333
2012-06-15 14:40
For me the best way is to make tournaments with both game. But for me it will be quite interesting if old pro players will start playng CSGO. How they will handle it... if they will still on top? or some new players will be better ;)
2012-06-15 14:44
dude they know if they made a tournament with both games cs:go wont have any views or maybe only 2 views and 1.6 will have t he most views and competition so they want to eliminate it against our will ...
2012-06-16 07:54
Dont blame CS:GO for eliminating CS 1.6, 1.6 was dying slowly(Less and less support over the last few years) before CS:GO came into the picture. CS:GO could be the life saver of the Counter Strike legacy, or CS might disappear from major competitions forever. It is up to you.
2012-06-15 15:25
You should listen Valve first. "That's what Counter-Strike is: a game of skill. And this is what CS:GO is: an effort to put anyone who has or should play Counter-Strike into the same game. That's a big enough goal but not a grand enough one to merit the name Counter-Strike 2."
2012-06-15 16:37
That's called modesty. They don't want to call it CS2 because IT'S NOT DIFFERENT ENOUGH. They're not saying that CSGO is not a game of skill, they are saying that it's not different enough for it to be a "sequel".

2012-06-15 14:46
I'm sorry but I can't blame him D:
2012-06-15 14:53
it will be so funny for Valve when they will notice that when CS:go goes live, even then there will be for example, 10k 1.6 id-s active, and only 1-2k of cs:go.
2012-06-15 14:55
blah... dream on. I just imagine: CSGO goes live and in same time they deactivates 1.6. on steam. If this wil lbe possible it will be the biggest whine on internet ;d PPL will kill coz of it ;d
2012-06-15 14:58
Who cares what markeloff thinks? Of course he will continue to play 1.6 for the time being having dreamhack and gamegune coming up, but in half a year or so what is he gonna do? Its either CS:GO or quit CS altogether(Granted that he want to continue making money playing CS). The fact of the matter is that 1.6 is dying, if you really think that CS 1.6 will grow bigger then you are blind. It is time to wake up people. The only chance CS has is that a new version will gather most of the players(+ get new players) and make for such a huge community that tournaments, sponsors Etc will support it. As I see it this could potentially happen in CS:GO, 1.6 is dying wether you like it or not, the question is if you want the CS legacy to continue or not. If some people stay with 1.6 and CSS we will just have 3 smaller communities, as opposed to one strong which equals more support, more tournaments and more prize money.
2012-06-15 15:03
Yeah, let's all form one big community and play a terrible game we don't enjoy! Haleluja!
2012-06-15 15:06
A lot of people enjoy the game, including myself(Who has always been a big fan of oldschool CS). If you dont enjoy the game, quit, but there is no hope left for any competetive scene in CS 1.6 so either move to CS:GO (unless you wanna play 1.6 @ public ...) or quit CS altogether. It is up to you.
2012-06-15 15:09
Why the fuck should I quit CS just because you enjoy another game? As long as I find some opponents I don't see any reason to stop playing. I'm gonna play CS 1.6 till the first out-of-beta-version of CSPromod gets released.
2012-06-15 16:13
Did I say that? You are taking words out of context in every statement.
2012-06-15 18:07
+1. ^^exactly why should anyone play a game that others like haha. but cspromod bugs/fixes will be worked on full time starting june 18th since school is out for the programmers. they expect a new beta or maybe even an out-of-beta mid july/august. until then, everyone can compare the better game. but 1.6 is still king.

2012-06-15 15:25
why would they stay in 1.6 if they dont get paid?
2012-06-15 15:27
Because they play 1.6 since 10+ years and they are kinda heroes. If they will stay with 1.6 big events will return in near future.

I haven't tried the game yet so I can't criticize or give my opinion, but if the 1.6 PROs like NaVi, ESC and some other oldschool players unite with Valve to develop CS:GO, it would be an awesome game. Of course they had to call some CSS pros too, because it is suposed to be a mixture between these 2 games. If they do what the pros tell them to, I think it has the chance to be a NEW Great GAME! LET'S MAKE VALVE LISTEN THE 1.6 PROS, THE REAL CS EXPERTS!
2012-06-15 16:10
ya real cs experts... valve tried talking to 1.6 pros, all they wanted was 1.6 with nicer graphics... not gonna work, you need to understand it's a new game, both CSS and 1.6 pros need not be ignorant and simple minded.

well ...regardless ...counter strike will no longer be featured as a IEM or WCG game so i guess this is where CS really dies wcg and iem are NOT to blame , and neither is CS:go , CS:o or source the people to blame are the 13 year old "gamers" who only know xbox, CoD and LoL , they ruined esports.

'Haven't played it since updates' When the game has changed completely since it came out.. interesting comment when he doesn't want to even touch it since they've improved the game.. sounds like when 1.5 game out noone wanted to play it or 1.6, then after a few 1.6 patches everyone loved it.. irony at its finest

Words of the wise: "If CS wants to succeed and stay alive, everyone who plays cs (from 1.6, to source, to even the people who play cz or other beta versions) needs to come together in any new update and support that for the sake of the CS community, regardless of the version you prefer." <- Danny "fRoD" Montaner
2012-06-15 18:11
I will play a game which is good. The game which i can enjoy. So far CS 1.6 has that caliber in FPS genre. No other game has came close to it. If tomorrow we have some new game which i can enjoy the same or maybe more than 1.6 i will urely move on. It doesnt have to be COUNTERSTRIKE FROM VALVE. I dont give a flying fuk about the future of "countertrike" and what pros have to say about it. As long as there are people in pubs, CWs, i will play 1.6.
2012-06-15 18:57
CS:go is weird.... CS 1.6 i wanna play it but i am scart that cs 1.6 will be gone soon....because stupid game cs:go.......haha :D now its awesome...cs:go is stupid game and it have nothing same like cs 1.6..its different game :)

1.6 killed CSS and now 1.6 will kill CS:GO 1.6 just kills every stupid broken bad shitty version of itself. Only a better version can survive, so far 1.6 is the best competitive CS version.

Totally wrong choice for eviction CS 1.6. It is still the most played FPS games and has many fans, players and servers. A changing of the CS 1.6 CS: GO not to talk. This is a classic of the latter only edited CS: Source. Have nothing to do with the link. All in all a very bad decision IEM's.

Nixon, I have always respect your website, but this interview is an outrage. Counter-Strike: Online is a totally different game than Counter-Strike: GO. CSO is a game that is exactly like 1.6 but targeted for Asian gamers, with fewer commands and options. CS:GO is the next CS game to come out. The way this interview is set up, it makes it see as though K1 League used CS:GO. This is entirely false. During the interview, a lot of references are made to CS:O, the game that K1 League used. THE LEAGUE DID NOT USE CS:GO. I had to reread this article a few times because it was confusing for a native English speaker as myself. How confusing would it be for all of the international fans on this site? I mean, the title of the article even says: markeloff: Don't want to play CS:GO. WHY IS THIS THE TITLE? THIS ARTICLE IS ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE WITH CS:O IN K1 LEAGUE. 1 QUESTION ABOUT CS:GO. This isn't journalism, this is the 1.6 community trying to make sure another Valve project doesn't succeed. The only question in the whole interview that deals with CS:Go is the following: There has been a lot of mixed opinions about Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and the possibility of it replacing 1.6 for all majors. Has the opinion about the game changed within the team, since playing it the first time? Haven't played it yet since updates and don't want to! Everyone in these comments seems to think that markleoff is talking about how awful CS:Go is rather than CS:Online. It seems as this whole news story was conjured up to give CS:Go a bad image. Please fix this disparity. Nixon, as you can see the thick-headed 1.6 community is already attacking CS:Go and this article has nothing to do with the game. Finally, who the hell cares what markleoff thinks about CS:Go? What is his expertise anyway? He became good @ cs after everyone stopped playing the game and wants to disown other games when he hasn't even played them enough. CS will die because of the hate in the 1.6 community. Mark my words.
2012-06-15 23:56
Example: Post #168 above No organizers will dare to put CS:GO in their game list after those interviews. You can't see any positive words from PROS. Also most of this community didn't like game either. I didn't count CS:S. You won't take cs:go for 1.5k viewers :D Obviously this individual is confused.
2012-06-16 00:00
1.6 community wcyd
2012-06-16 00:20
Calm down kid. I dont see any issues with the thread title. We all know that CS is being removed from all the international tourneys. And all the counterstrikers are talking about the next CS from Valve which is CS:GO. And if worlds top 10 CS player says that the new upcoming game doesnt interest him and he wont be playing it. Which indirectly means, maybe a possible retirement, yes it deserves to be a thread title. Because his experience in Asia and what he thinks about the upcoming tourney isnt much important as compared to him retiring from the scene.
2012-06-16 00:27
I agree with you, it seems obvious what nixon were trying to do, and judging by all the morons commenting here Id say he succeded.. "If CS wants to succeed and stay alive, everyone who plays cs (from 1.6, to source, to even the people who play cz or other beta versions) needs to come together in any new update and support that for the sake of the CS community, regardless of the version you prefer." - Danny "fRoD" Montaner

2012-06-16 09:51
When will the world grasp that CS:GO is the descendant of CS:S. It has nothing to do with cs 1.6 Of course cs 1.6 players don't wanna play with it BECAUSE THEY DID NOT SWITCH TO CS:S when it came out. CS:GO is a perfect descendant of CS:S a perfect one but it has got nothing on earth to do with cs 1.6. THAT IS SO SIMPLE. THAT'S IT. Long live cs 1.6 !
2012-06-16 09:58
You are wrong. CS:GO is an attempt from Valve to gather source AND 1.6 players (Why do you think they have asked both 1.6 and source pros for feedback). I did not start playing cs:source when it came out, but now it is time to realize that the 1.6 era is over. I have played CS:GO for about 30hours and I must say that it is actually quite the enjoyable game (The first hours were awful, a lot of adjusting had to be made, but it got better!). Do you really expect a new CS game to be based on the same engine as the original game that was made over 12 years ago? Sure it could, but that would not attract new players, sponsors and so on..
2012-06-16 10:52
Nothing on planet proves me better that i am right than the news we are commenting right now. Neither Markeloff NOR any pro player wants to play CS:GO (absolutely the same as CS:S) and NOR 90% of the entire cs 1.6 community. It is absolutely sure that you see the situation wrong because CS:GO is the same shit as CS:S that is why almost nobody of cs 1.6 players wants to play it. That is an another case that valve tried to unite CS:S players and CS 1.6 players which is never gonna happen and it should NOT happen because it is good as it is now. Of course valve knows cs 1.6 has a LOT of players and spectators and that means hell of a lot of money that they want to get their hands on. It is a money talks situation. Again, nothing proves me better than almost the ENTIRE cs 1.6 community's response to this attempt. They could still come out of this good though, if they stopped forcing this shit and they just changed CS:S to CS:GO and they could develop something else csPROMOD for instance. Sorry but you can NOT argue with thousands of people who like this game as it is now and neither can valve. Sooner or later you both will get it.
2012-06-16 13:30
Considering this is a CS 1.6 community site it aint so wierd that the majority on this site supports 1.6? LOL dude. Its only a couple of hundred users commenting here, it says nothing about the ENTIRE community. What about the thousands that already is playing the closed CS:GO beta and loves it?(Of course many hates it as well, but it is still in the beta, and also many of the others - probably like yourself, have never even tried the game, or only given it a few hours..). What about n0thing, cArn, GeT_RiGhT, da_bears, fRoD - all known 1.6ers who supports CS:GO? So where did you get from that ALL the 1.6 pros are against CS:GO?.. I call bullshit :) I am a hardcore 1.6 fan, dont get me wrong - I love CS 1.6 and if it were to me I would put all my money in this game, but the thing is that it is not up to me. Dont blame valve and CS:GO for 1.6 to going down, the game was falling (in terms of clans, leagues, tournaments and total prize money overall) way before we heard about CS:GO. The game is getting old(more than 12years now), the major tournaments are dropping out and so are the sponsors. It is time to face the facts: 2012 will most likely be the last year with major tournaments in CS 1.6. I want the counter strike legacy to continue, and the only option for that atm is to support CS:GO(Which is not a bad game, eventhough I prefer 1.6 I have realized that the time is in for a new CS game) - hopefully it can be the new major FPS title that is picked up by the major tournaments and receive tons of support. "If CS wants to succeed and stay alive, everyone who plays cs (from 1.6, to source, to even the people who play cz or other beta versions) needs to come together in any new update and support that for the sake of the CS community, regardless of the version you prefer." - Danny "fRoD" Montaner..
2012-06-16 14:17
fRoD, aka the traitor who moved to CSS for money? I dont give a f**k about what he talks. He is a noob. Not even top 50 player in the world right now. Ofcourse he wants to move to CS:GO cuz he sucks in 1.6. And why the f**k should any of us care about tourneys and all? I dont follow COD tourneys cuz i dont like that game. Similarily, i wont follow CS:GO, cuz i dont like that game. Just because the name is counterstrike, doesnt make it counterstrike to me cuz i dont find CS elements in tht game yet.
2012-06-16 16:21
I am sorry my friend the "pros" who you mentioned above are nothing to this game anymore only GeT_RiGhT. You cannot take FROD as an example he played CS:S alot then got back to 1.6.. GeT_RiGhT just tests the game nothing more... apart from this you wrote NOTHING new than your previous comment and these were answerd in the previous comment of mine. All of the pro players who play this game are most likely not gonna continue playing if they take cs 1.6 out of the major tournaments. Of course the money eaters like FROD are gonna continue the game for a really short period but most of the pros are not and THAT WILL MEAN THE END OF THIS GAME. Oh and one more thing. You said this is a community of cs 1.6ers and it is just a couple of hundreds of them. On the one hand this is the most popular cs 1.6 site of the world. So most of the users comment here or do not because the rest of us did. On the other hand this is irrelevant because we have read the opinions about CS:GO all of the pro players and 90% of them said this is a shit (in a more decent way). If the pros do not continue palying then the whole huge community won't either this is soooo OBVIOUS. Let me remind you of the title of this news one last time "markeloff: Don't want to play CS:GO". The pros the REAL PROS NAVI ESC GAMING WINFAKT SK GAMING(only forest and get right plays CS:GO SOMETIMES) ESRAEL and so on WILL NOT PLAY CS:GO more likely play LoL(Neo said). And this is the whole point.

2013-01-18 16:53
Question is what does he think of the game today?
2013-01-17 16:43
They all prefer 1.6 imo. Not that they think cs:go is a terrible game, but still.
2013-01-17 16:56
thats obvious. thanks mr obvious. i wanna know if they feel like they will put in the effort that is needed for this game or will they quit.
2013-01-17 17:15
it's captain obvious mate :) another obvious answer : If they started to play cs:go competetively, it seems normal that they are gonna train.
2013-01-17 17:23
still its not obvious, not attending at any tournament at all makes it wierd and still not feel that they put in the time that is needed to be a top team.
2013-01-17 17:35
Maybe they don't feel ready, and are training atm.
2013-01-17 17:45
