Is it possible to keep playing such an ancient game? How does one of the ancestors of the shooter genre feel right now? Lack of access to other more or less modern online games isn't a bad thing; it works on some level in that it's online, and you can shoot, which is mechanically relaxed. But it's still not entirely clear who plays CS 1.6 regularly. Let’s talk about that in our article!
Is Counter-Strike 1.6 still alive in 2022?

You may be surprised, but players are still playing CS 1.6. At its peak, there are slightly more than 12 thousand daily users; the online population is steadily declining yearly, but it is still present. Most players ran the game for the last time in 2015. As you have understood, nothing is happening in СS:GO now. We got nostalgic and decided to see if there was life in the game so beloved by many in my childhood, CS 1.6. Cyber-sport.io team has found out what Counter-Strike 1.6 is.

There were more servers with these mods than you could imagine at the start. For example, there are many World of Warcraft-style modes with magic, as well as a large number of zombie modes. Still, almost all of this has died out among the hundreds of servers in the built-in game browser. These custom servers now feel good in CS:GO, where just enough content is covered, easy access to the workshop is available, and a reasonably modern platform allows you to create a slew of servers with varying degrees of liberty. 

 

In CS 1.6, the game plays on ordinary maps, typical for this game. Dust 2, Mirage, Inferno, Poolday, Aztec are all included. Other maps and servers usually do not shine with many modes. The main thing here is not gameplay. For all the hours I spent playing CS 1.6, I realized that this isn't a game; it's a hangout for people over 30 where you can meet friends and familiars who are the same as you and come here every night to talk about life and hang a couple of other headshots on the long exceptions, as there were also young players and even a couple of little guys. 

 

Well, the ratio of young players is much higher in CS:GO than here. Here everything is easier without all the zoomer tricks. It's as if time has stopped here 15 years ago, and on the servers, you usually meet people with nicknames from that era who you wouldn't usually meet in your gaming life.

CS 1.6 in 2022

It seems that CS 1.6 was not playable at all. But if you think about how many years have passed since its release and compare it to the games of the same time, the original Counter-Strike has aged very well. Of course, you can play it, and your eyes will not instantly tire of the age-old graphics. Surely outdated, the sound of firing and other sounds is not entirely pleasant, and the effects are pressing on the brain about half an hour into the game.

CS 1.6 community 

Maybe you think people have some contemptuous or hostile attitude toward the local community, but at least that's not true. After all, many were part of it at one time or another. The majority here, in any case, is still in a state of adequacy and spends time in the game. This CS 1.6 is nearly identical to other similar shooters. If we talk about the technical part, yes, it's pretty obsolete. What else do you want to hear here? It's 22 years old, most users are much younger than CS, and the game is alive anyway. And who knows how many more years of dedication and maybe even new players will come into it? 

 

 

So, answering the question posed in the title of the article, if there is life in CS 1.6, we can say with absolute certainty yes, and you have absolutely nothing to lose if you suddenly want to go back to her for a couple of evenings or for the first time to meet the original Counter-Strike. What do you think about this game? Would you be able to return to this masterpiece for a couple of games, or has it finally lost its edge? You can write your thoughts in the comments or leave them on social networks. Share your experience with Cyber-sport.io. Subscribe and follow the latest eSports news!

HOW DOES RANKING WORK IN FACEIT?
Players that have been active on the platform and have played for a time are given the FACEIT Elo statistic by the website. In conclusion, the FACEIT Elo rating system demonstrates how skilled players are in a certain game. But, the FACEIT Elo is unrelated to any other Elo you may be familiar with. For instance, your FACEIT Elo won't be affected by your League of Legends Elo. This Elo system, which functions somewhat similarly to a leveling system, is the ideal approach to distinguish between various types of gamers. Only in FACEIT will you discover this, and only while you are on the server does it matter.

Xtreme Gaming – the strongest team in LCQ right now?
From the beginning, the recognition of MMORPG China region has been dominant among other regions. As history has shown, Dota 2 did not become exceptional, and Chinese vulnerabilities did not turn out to be stronger among all the others on time exceptions, one has only to remember the absolute hegemony of the probability of occurrence of signs in 2014 and 2016. Almost every year, fans of the Chinese region have one or two teams that almost never go into the skills of other teams from other regions: once they were Vici Gaming, Wings, Newbee, LGD, LGD Forever Young. Each such team had a chance to get the coveted The International Cup - some teams found it, and some, although they didn’t find it, were very close. PSG.LGD is a team that stands out for a very high level of play and makes fans fall in love with its unmistakable game at speeds, but so far, all of them are ahead in the last three years of performances in vain.
