Been playing for about 10? Years. cal-invite(1.6), the rage I ensued from attempting to play in a pub after cal died or play a scrim from gamesurge. I've broke mouses, keyboards a head set or two, and made one of my girlfriends leave me. I lived and breathed that game every day.
The skill cap in that game is tons higher than 99% of fps games out now IMO. Still talking about 1.6(source is garbage). Hardly touch it now as it tends to make me unhappy. Been playing COD and BC title since I finally got a computer that can play more than CS. Those games killed my cs mojo(skill wise), still a great game otherwise.
