Is CSS dieing?

Postby Joe Bloggs on Mon Jun 30, 2014 9:22 pm

With CSS now being an older game, is it now in rapid decline? Recent visits to server 1 I have seen reduced numbers at all times of the day and waiting times, if there are any, are very short.

How long will CSS last?

personally I don't think it is dying but as games do age the people that used to play grow up and move on. however I do see many young people playing the game. CSS clearly can't last forever, I hoped CSGO was going to push the franchise forwards but I don't think it will. people play CSS for it's straight forward no nonsense approach with no glitz glamour and nonsense that has happened to CSGO and TF2 for me all the changes to CSGO have simply killed it for me. I will play CSS until I am physically unable or the ability to play online stops.

Hagz, you are a player after my own heart, the CSS game play is pure, 2.5 minute rounds with intense game play with only a small wait to the next round after being killed. The problem is that the graphics are now dated, if csgo had 64 man servers then I would be a happier chappy but at the moment numbers are reducing in CSS and I have yet to find a suitable game to replace it.

Tbh I leave cs:s for a while but always get bored with everything else and keep coming back. Most evenings the servers are full are close to full and thats incredible if you think how longs it been without an update.

Tbh, I've recently got bored of BF4, SWTOR, FIFA and so on.....

Missed the Steam games/community, hence I'm back on here now! It's safe to say my skills have declined with the time!

It's like 1.6 was until a little while back.

CSS will be around for a long time yet.

Recently I have seen an increase in Russian players that have kept the servers full, long live CSS, but I just wish they would use English on the mic

It's still not close to dead guys! Nearly full server at 1am on a Tuesday!! Happy days, this game is part of my life.
