cs_assault chokepoints are brutal...I suppose a 5v5 would be more feasible but in pubs when it's 8v8, 10v10 etc it's stacked. Only saving grace is being able to spam through the brick walls on the roof when the T's are using the CCTV. A good player with an awp/ak behing the red container inside can pretty much hold down the fort.
but yes cbble is incredibly fun in scrims. So is nuke. Some times I wish Valve would take a page out of StarCraft and just give us 4K textures for the GoldSrc engine
In the Beta 6 and onward days me and my buddies (6 to 10) here in my part of the world always played in an Internet café and thus we never had the ping problems you mentioned because we always played on LAN. Also, the café we played on actually dedicated one of their units as a an actual server and we made it a habit to rotate maps because we were so sick of de_dust. Hence we got to play de_nuke, cs_assualt and the assassination maps.

Don't we have one?
As for the bad attitudes it was after you can play it at home and play with anyone using your home internet connection.
But in our part of the world since CS was always played in an Internet café using a LAN server there was no bad attitudes because you could get your face re-arranged by the other guy playing in the café if you really got unlucky.
Heck, I once saw a player got beaten to within an inch of his life for bad mouthing the mom of an opposing CS player via the chat function of CS in a 20 vs 20 match in de_dust2. It was just bad luck for the victim that the CS player whose mom he bad mouthed was just two seats away from him. LOL

it's easy to put what we grew up with on the pedestal...I'm sure the quake guys shat on CS for being a disgrace to the genre...and the granddaddies that played wolfenstein shat on quake for being filthy casual bait. We can agree video games may not be as rewarding as it requires less patience than it did back in the days.
I could not agree more.
