I started playing years ago also. I think the first time I played it it was still in Beta. It was over 5 years ago I think haha.

I play...and believed I +repped you for commenting on something that "sounded" like you played CSS... LOL.

My Xfire is j05son if anyone that plays wants to add me...

P.S. I'm decent at CSS, nothing special by any means...I don't get called a h4x3r or l33t or anything.

What's X-fire? If you want to play, I can toss you the IP I usually play on.

Xfire basically networks all the various internet games/users. You install it on your computer, create a s/n and it tracks all the various games you play.

That's about the easiest way to describe it without going into real detail. Rest can be found:

http:/ /wiki.xfire.com/wiki/index.php/Xfire

Not sure why, but "http://wik i" is censored. So just delete the space in between the // and that'll be the right link.

Cool. I'll probably check it out. Thanks.

I havent played in a while, but I was a hardcore cs player for 5 or so years, and switched to source when the rest of my team did. Quit after 2 seasons of source in CAL, which is around the time everyone i played with became obsessed with WoW.

I havent played in a while, but I was a hardcore cs player for 6 years, and switched to source when the rest of my team did. Quit after 2 seasons of source in CAL, which is around the time everyone i played with became obsessed with WoW.

Ughhh...WoW. A couple days ago there was a big increase in CS players because WoW was done for maintenance or something.

www.xfire.com

It's free.

It's like AIM but for gamers.

On AIM [if you use it or whatever] if you get an IM it minimizes your CSS window to show you the chat. You can hide all windows but then you don't get the IM. On Xfire, when you get an IM it shows up in the bottom right of your screen [opposite of the game chat] and appears for a couple sec and then fades away...

It has friends like AIM. I can click your name [hypothetically, if you had an account] and from there, make a call [talk to you over mics] PM, I can join the game that you are playing, look at your profile [which pretty much says who your friends are and what games you play, it logs hours].

CSS favorites doesn't work. Xfire fixes this. It keeps a history of the servers you play at...I included a pic of my desktop with just Xfire's window open so you can see it...It keeps a history [like your web browser does] of the servers you play at, and can also favorite them...

You can send files over it, like some Halo3 vid leaked and showed the new Zanzibar inspired map with a red vs. blue game that my buddy sent me...

It's cool...It's an organizer for your servers so you don't have to go look for it, or whatever...

Plus, in game, if you and I are hypothetically playing, and it's just you and a guy, [everyone else dead so you can't see their team chat] I could IM you and tell you he's afk so it doesn't take 5 mins to wait for the next round...Or tell you where enemies are ...

[b]EDIT: The game can also have favs/history for just games...if you play WoW, or Day of Defeat along with CSS, it will have your favs and history separate for them....It also shows what games your friends are playing. If next to your name it says DoD, I can enter the exact server as you just by clicking your name and join game...I can start the games from Xfire instead of having to go through the desktop shortcuts as well...

I played hard CS for awhile. Went into CAL...blah blah blah...always went cal-o reform because teams always fell apart. I actually got to the point of hacking and revaccing some of the older hacks out there. Slay0r was 1337

BOOM HEADSHOT!

Old but good.

Watch these vids, a two part series, it's like 11mins long...

THE NOOBS GUIDE TO CSS! Vid of them playing for like 2.5mins but then it goes into the in depth guide for noobs that is hilarious, imo. If you play, you much watch.

My fiances sister and brother in law play. I think they're in some clan called CB or something. One of their names might be CB Body bag or some such thing.

Heck yeah, Swat 4 is awesome.

What mode do you usually play? I'm all about barricade pistoles only or escort. Straight-up barricade is too easy when you get the nuances of arresting down, I always get like 40-60 points a round. Too boring.

Joe, I've seen your sig and always wondered why you would put something like OT maybe... but not OG. Seems kind of... i dunno, pointless?

wow, its been a very, very, VERY long time since I have played CS. I only play CS regular, though, I dont know about this Source business. I should play again.

I play everyday, but I play surf mostly. Greatest, great, remix are the maps I play. I am pretty good, well, I would say I am in the the upper part of the people who play, but not elite like some people.

A few friends got me into surf maps for a few weeks.

Good times.

I never got into surf...

I like gun games a lot..

Zombie maps are decent every now-and-then...

This clan has four servers and I've been playing their gun game a lot...I just found their humans vs. bots server which looked good. For every human there is 3 bots...

OT if either Staley was there at 31, or Ugoh at 37. I didn't think Jerry Angelo had much interest in an early OG.

It is really hard to get into, it just doesn't make any sense and even when you kind of get it you still suck. Only reason I played through it was cause my friends played it.

I was pretty much a free kill, but now I am right up there with them, I caught up eventually.
