    Assassination maps are/were much neglected in any incarnation of CS.

    I have to say the long post I made was a copy'n'paste from the thread on steampowered. It has been frustrating over the years that people are always asking for fixes, maps, weapons, models, expansions, fresh textures, and so on. However these are all individual voices that end up getting lost in the never-ending torrent of other threads. Never to be addressed by Valve or a community manager.

    While the petition seems geared towards a rewrite or a massive expansion/update, I see it as an opportunity to just get Gabe to tell us what the future holds. Is Tactical Intervention the future of CS?

    I honestly don't think so, last I heard Minh had a tiny team and was trying to reinvent the original success of CS - that's the equivalent of trying to reinvent the wheel. CS is already great but personally I want a version to call CS 2010. To me that means LOTS of things, but the result I want from the petition? Just a community message from Valve. The CS community is the greatest, happiest and most loyal of any game ... but that won't last forever.

    Even if Gabe or a community manager were to say "Guys, we can't tell you anything other than we promise that we're thnking of you and the future of CS".

    Just fix the netcode and handling of CS:S to work more like 1.6 and the game is perfect. Although I do admit, it runs almost flawlessly on LAN.

    1.6 is still better than Source and any new CS they intend to bring out.

    Sadly now its losing more and more players :(

    I prefer CS:CZ tbh. Tried CS Promod, but even though it's slightly better than regular CS:S (which I absolutely abhor) it doesn't even come close to 1.6.

    To be honest CSPromod makes all the changes I think are necessary, anything more than that feels like it's asking for trouble.

    But isn't CSProMod just the old versions of the maps on the same engine as CS Source and some GUI changes?

    But also it is the same 5 year old textures as CSS, the same net code as CSS, the same hitbox issues as CSS, etc?

    I don't worry about that stuff, doesn't have significant impact on your gameplay in my experience.

    CS:Source sucks, the fact that Valve decided to hire another company to produce the sequel to 1.6 shows where their interests lie.

    CS Promod on the other hand is finally picking up speed. They have streamlined Source maps, revamped the physics and gun handing and are working on animations and skins now. I'm excited even though it's far from the finished product it's a very good start.

    I always hated CS with a passion even if I played it a lot because my friends were playing it but I still think Valve should make a sequel ASAP while the game(s) still have a fanbase. Lots of them would move to CS2 if it existed. They would cash in easily on this so I wonder why they aren't working on it

    weird

    Well, they did do CS:S. The problem is that every hardcore fan of CS 1.6 (and CS:CZ for that matter) seems to hate CS:S with a passion. Seems to me Valve doesn't want to pour (more) money into something that potentially will fail big time.

    A developer actually listening to what it's customers want?

    Nah...it'll never happen.

    People will just happily keep on grinding the same old 1.6 and CS:S to the end of time, so why would they bother making a new game? :D
