    I agree, gameplay will remain unafected, but the concern is how this will effect server owners/admin. They pay the bills that keep the game alive and thus ensure Valve has a steady stream of sales. The servers ownes have no say in which ads will be displayed and they may object to the products advertised.

    I disagree, though mostly on principal. At some point computer owners need to stan up and say "I'm only paying for this once and I will NOT allow you to use my computer to advertise to me" :duh:

    i think the ads in CS1.6, much like the dynamic pricing in CS:S wont make it off the ground. sure they can have maps, but as soon as ads are implemented someone will have the SAME map without the ads in it.
    what about servers making maps and putting their ads into it
    you could also think of the ads as your payment to rent the map

    The maps will be exacltly as they are now.

    Its easy to get ads into the game without changing the map.
    Ever tried a UK2 CS server ?

    You quit buying games. Im happy to pay for a good game, but if the game is just riddled with advertising then id feel almost justified in pirating a game. The company gets theirs via me getting mine. Im certainly not paying for adverts.

    edit: though I really want trackmania United :S
