I played it 5 years ago on a private Lan. it was CS 1.2 or 1.3. man that rocked!!
I've been playing it since before 1.6, although it was such a long time ago I cant rememeber what version it was. good old days though!

I loved the 747 map in cs1.3. That was one of the best times I have had at a CS Lan. It had many entry and exit points, hard to defend and hard to attack.
I wish they bring it back for source.
i still have the cd's for CS 1.2!!!

I hadn't played anything to do with valve until early august so i guess im a rookie. :gunner:
Well im a definite rookie i only got my comp last year never had one befors that as my mum couldnt afford it. So iv had csss about 5 mounths
Aaah 747 that brings back memories.... yes a Source port for this map would be fantastic. All we can do is wait and hope..

Since 1.5, was only really the second game I got into. (after BF1942)
Have stopped playing it now tho :P
I too loved 747, jumping in the roof entrance down the tunnel and pwning T's in the cabin areas, it was very Movie like!
1.6 myself - and loads of maps - the submarine for one sticks in my mind.
i have only ever played css when the source version was out. but i would really like to play 1.6
Hmm, it was version 1 or 1.1 when I started. Man, I hated 747, that was one map I would never go near.
I actually miss siege though. It is without doubt one of the most biased maps ever, but hey, I enjoy a challenge. It was particularly fantastic when you could drive the APC right into the garage, while crouched, watching the ceiling tiles to guide you in at full speed. When you hit the SUV in the middle, the APC would vanish... you leap and start laying the smackdown :twisted:

isnt tihs why you hate assault?
In some respects, but when trying to storm assault, you have too many points that the T can shoot you from, making it even harder. Or the vent thing, where it can be almost impossible to take out the campers because you're moving so slow etc.
In siege, if you're half decent, you have half a chance. FB's and HE's can help you force your way in. Also the whole APC thing made it much more fun.
I actually started on TFC and moved across to CS after that god nows when but it was many years ago. I used to play TFC as much as I play CSS.

I have only started playing counter strike when the source engine came out because i didnt have a very good comp and i really liked it when i tried it at fiddy's :D
I've been playing since 1.5. Not that you can tell...

omg i started when the minimum requirements where Pentium 133, 24mb ram and 2X CD-ROM still have the games and in there cases lol, which was about 6 years ago
Half-Life Generation was the first PC game i got and aint looked back since aint as good as i was on 1.6 :(

I started playing CS back in the Beta stages, with maps like bunker, god it was ALONG time ago. Years and Years and Years i've played this, i also came over from TFC like Lestat, enjoyed the Beta of CS so much i rarely played TFC again.

lol- i got the cd for cs 1.0! 1.5 was the making of the true pro's
Well i'm a bit surprised by the results, To be honest I thought most people only played since the Source engine. Nice to find out there are a lot of veterans even among the younger players:D
1.1 here, I used to like 747, up close and personal.
Got to love the name hack curtains :D
I wasn't so keen on seige but then our server had awps on then

Err I started playing it back in '99-was that 'beta 9' or something? Played it on my Celeron 333 with my Voodoo 3 card-those were the days!
'Airport' rocked but it also had bad memories for me as i remember playing online and I was the last CT left. I was in the plane heading towards the front and going through the curtains when a T was coming in and I didnt shoot fast enough to the disgust of all who were watching!! :P The shame and namecalling was intense-but therapy helped me through it-I think! :lol: What was the map where you fight in a market and you can shoot the chickens?
