    Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer.

    No.

    Please tell me this means you play on a LAN with friends or family. Please tell me that...

    And for all of you who are complaining about HLE3 not coming out and this being the project of focus instead at the moment, shut up please. I don't think I've seen or can think of one good reason why this new CS game isn't a good idea. HL Ep3 is nowhere near as important to Valve as the new CS game, and that should be obvious to everyone but may only be obvious to people who know the answer to rogerrabbits question, people like me.

    CS:GO is being designed around competitive 5v5 play, which means that it will be a new game for the people who take the current version seriously and play it at a competitive level. The professional CS:S scene is worth literally millions of pounds annually when you take in all the professional teams, their sponsors, and the tournaments they play in. People who don't see that side of the coin or who aren't involved in that side of CS:S are bound to think that Episode 3 would be a much better way for Valve to spend their time, but the fact is you're wrong. I know exactly why they're doing this; they want at least another 5 years out of CS at a competitive professional level, and one way or another they are going to get it.

    Although I must admit I played CSS religiously for a couple of years near launch, I've not touched it for a long time. It would be nice if this was a complete overhaul, but there was always very little chance of Valve dropping it's well fed and watered Source engine..

    I'm not expecting too much, but it's good they've finally decided to refresh it, it's a great game still.

    Well seeing as you were rude, let me put it this way, anyone who is looking forward to a revamped CS when you could be looking forward to Arma3 and BF3, is a noob.

    Arma3 and BF3 are not, will not, and can not be anything remotely near what Counter Strike is. They're almost entirely different genres, you may as well be playing Railworks for all of the similarities between the games.

    Counter Strike is about 5v5 clan play, be it amateur or professional, it's a totally different experience and in that field it's king.

    Afterall, there are only two different types of CS players: Those who like it, and those who are bad at it. :D

    You forgot the third type, those who were good and got accused of cheating, even though they only played it for a month because it's shallow and has small maps and no variety and no vehicles and was barely an improvement over the original CS, which itself is barely an improvement on FPS's that date back to the early 90's that most css players have never even heard of.

    Noob alert!

    CS has had auto-aim since the dawn of time.

    1.6 is dead to me.

    Two words....adverts & shield.
