I played it for a while, but never got hugely into it. I never played it a tonne online, I always felt really inferior and like one of the worst players because I was inexperienced, and the community never seemed too welcoming. I was probably just playing on the wrong servers though. I was fairly new to online gaming in general when I played it, so I probably made some bad server choices.
 
I did have a tonne of great LAN matches with a few of my mates against bots though. They were great fun.

Yeah, for a little while. I was younger then and thought I sucked. It turned out I did suck, but those guys who play it religiously are also crazy good. I have not touched the game in at least a year unfortunately.

Played competitively for seasons 1-3 of CAL and tried getting back into a few seasons ago and couldn't. I just pub now usually for like 30 minutes a day once i get home from work while I wait for dinner.

yeah i use to play it but then i got bored with it and stop.

I played from beta on until source which I stopped earlier this year. Made it to cevo-main and a brief stint in cal invite.  
 
Trying to focus more on writing and other video-game coverage now, and I just can't dedicate the nearly 30-40 hours I used to spend playing counter-strike.

Every now and then I do. I have to use my brother's steam account though.

I only play gungame on a french server. Gungame is fun and the fact that they are french lets me ignore the elitism you get on most servers.

I play quite often. Ive always like CS mainly because I can quickly get in and play a few rounds, get out, and have fun.
 
I did play a season of CAL but it seriously is not fun at all D:

css is a joke. If you're going to play counterstrike, play 1.6.

#12 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

got it, its damn boring... but if we wanna play together i'll give it a shot

#13 Posted by Breadfan (6590 posts) -

I've played CS, but only at my friend's house.  A group of them convinced me to buy it, so if anyone wants to play sometime add me on steam (Br3adfan).  I'm picking it up tomorrow

I was REALLY into that game for like a year, I only play now when my friends want me to join.

#20 Posted by eroticfishcake (7786 posts) -

Well this is an old thread.
 
I play CSS but very rarely. Primarily because no one else is playing it.

#22 Posted by Meltbrain (2971 posts) -

Yeah. I've been playing since 1.1 so I'm around, but I'm usually on European servers. If you fancy a game though, feel free to hit me up. I'm usually around.

#23 Posted by Mikemcn (6988 posts) -

Im so sorry.

I play it very often, although I wouldn't say that I'm not bad at it, which is probably the only reason why I enjoy it.
There is a brief period, about 2 months for me, where it was literally a grind for me to play it. Then eventually, it turned and I actually started getting kills, and then it moved from there. It's something you have to get used to, a time commitment.
I think I had a little too much time on my hands when I bought it.

#25 Posted by Callumrides (357 posts) -

yeah i play cs not much gd but i play

#26 Posted by Zaccheus (1794 posts) -

Wow, CSS really isn't popular at GB. I have played CS 1.5 and 1.6 a lot back in the day and bought CSS when it became available for Mac.

#33 Posted by RsistncE (4496 posts) -

Yup, I play. Technically been playing since 1.0, but I took a massive break from the game about a year and a half after source came out. I've gotten back into it though and I'm really enjoying the new weapon rebalancing they've done.
