I am entirely in agreement with Burn at this point... my post to
Yep. All good opinions. The weapons HAVE been changed, though, If you don't notice them, I'm not too surprised. You know me, though. I'm a jumping, Deagle fool. I could take anyone with anyone weapon on with a Deagle, and usually come out ahead. I can't hit crap with the DE anymore-- whether I'm moving, ducking, jump-->duck firing, ANYTHING. As for your distance firing with 7 bullets in the same place, Glue, try again. I think you're mistaken. I sat CLOSE (5 paces), and fired in the same place, and all 7 shots in a diff location. Not one hit the same place.
You all seem to agree on the hs count upgrade. I think this is directly affected by their changes to the weapons. Someone last night said they "n00bified" CS. I think they were right on the money. Anyone can get a headshot, even if their aim sucks. The m4's accuracy wasn't increased, the game just recieved a headshot hitbox upgrade. Sucks bigtime if you ask me.
I think my upset about this entire thing is just the feel of the game. It's not Counter-Strike anymore. I mean, when you patch a game, you should FIX bugs. FIX hacks. Change things like the spectator proxy (which yes, I thought was cool months ago when I saw it. Everyone last night on the servers I played on kept repeating the same thought, "the only cool thing about 1.4 is when you're dead."). DO NOT change the feel of the game! If you're going to do that, release a NEW game. Now this feels like Ghost Recon. If you move and fire, your aim sucks. If you use a pistol, don't duck and fire, your aim sucks (but to me, it still sucks). It feels like every weapon has been dumbed down so that anyone can use it, regardless of how great their aim is. Even the AWP. CS 1.3 took a lot of skill to play (and a lot of BS), but now it feels like the BS has been upped, and it takes even less skill to play. Maybe that's just me, and yes, maybe that's just a couple hours playing the final of 1.4-- but at the moment, I'm very upset about this release, and I know a ton of others who are. I'm sure many of you think I'm REALLY mad about the jumping change-- but in reality, I'm okay with it now (save the practical side of it I mentioned earlier). I knew it was coming months ago in the beta, and got used to it then. Since I've gone back to jumping a lot, but I can get used to not jumping again. I think getting used to what seem to be crappy weapons and crappy headshots will be more difficult.
Anyway, I'm glad some of you really enjoy it. Hopefully after a good week or so of playing it (next week for me, as this one is shot), I'll be in the same position. Have fun guys!
I haven't had any time to play since that post... and won't until Sunday/Saturday. I am hoping more time will give me more time to adjust... but I hate the changes they made, and am lost as to why some of them were made (jumping, okay sure... but WHY the way they did? As Burn points out, it's ridiculous!).
