CounterStrike: Source... should I bother?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
OK... I am a Casual FPS gamer. Played through HL2, Halo, Far Cry... Almost THrough FEAR. Played Halo 2 online for awhile before the kiddie cheater came and ruined it...

Jumped on CounterStrike SOurce the other day and it is just silly how good people are.

My Question is: SHould I bother starting with CS:S now? Is there a good place to train without getting my ass smacked down by these guys?

Let me know, cause I can only be called NUB so many times...

It's not that they are so good, it's that you are just...well...bad. I'm joking, but you should create a server with the map de_dust2 and put 30 bots with just knives against you. Go through all the weapons and master headshots. Also play a lot of zombie maps, they teach you to hide and keep your aim at moving objects.

of course, you dont get good by playing with a bunch of newbies, you get good by playing good players. Its like having a professional NHL team play a Pee-Wee league, like from south park.. (lol)

Play in the OCN server. There's almost always some new players, some medium skilled players, and some really good players. The more you play, the better you'll get.

DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME, IT WILL CONSUME YOUR LIFE AND YOUR SOUL

but if you choose to play it, find a 100tick server with newb, newbie or noob in the title

when you do get good and learn the game you will then be able to differentiate between the good players and the cheaters, HAVE FUN

if your a casual gamer id say get it for the mods but dont bother trying to learn the normal game unless you dont mind dying heaps. sure, you get better with time and experience but you really need to be dedicated to get good at this game in particular.

watching the pros through spec mode is even worse, i hate watching the people with mouse sensitivity 15 then swear their heads off after they die

but yeah, good graphics, weapons and regularly updated, largest community in the world, play on casual severs if there around

Option is one of the best players on the site lol.

Actually I'd recommend just tooling around the OCN servers for an hour or two a day. I'm slowly getting better just by playing here. It's really fun, too.
