I've been trying to get back into original counterstrike, after playing a bunch of Global Offensive, but I'm having a very hard time finding servers that are playing original, non-custom games. Every time I look, there are hundreds of populated servers, with thousands of players, but just about all of them are playing one of the many various custom games, with crazy modded maps, sounds from unreal tournament, killstreaks from call of duty (the "call of duty" modded game mode seems to be immensely popular), and game modes that have nothing to do with counterstrike. Even when I use the filters to try to find original maps, playing classic game modes, the servers I join are almost never actually playing what they say they are, in their titles.

That's actually the biggest reason I've been playing so much Global Offensive. I'm trying to play counterstrike, but it seems like almost no one who's playing counterstrike is actually playing counterstrike. At least with GO, I can just use "find a game" and jump into an official classic casual server, and play me some regular ass CTs VS terrorists, on regular ass dust, office, and the like.

So, I'm asking the 1.6 elitists of this board, where are the regular 1.6 servers? Am I just missing something? Any tips on finding regular servers? Where are you guys playing? Or are you guys playing weird custom maps and game modes, too?

I wouldn't even try with 1.6 any more. Your best bet is to join a steam group and join their organized games, otherwise you'll have the same problems and when you do find a server that isn't all customized you'll have to hope that it's not filled with south americans that just won't ever both shut up or speak in english. Find a steam group you like that plays 1.6, good fun times can be had and it's not hard to just join any random group.

Hmm. I might just have to do that. I worry, though, because my skills in 1.6 are... not quite up to the par I set myself back when 1.6 was the only counterstrike, and I was playing regularly. And even back then, I was never that good. That's why I've been trying to get back into it. I want to get better again. And I think that, right now, if I were to join a group that plays regularly, they'd all be so much better than me, it wouldn't even be funny.

Oh snaps. Thanks. I'll write those down, and try to jump into them next time I'm playing.

Lol. Earlier when I was playing on one of those servers, there was some dude with "ninja team" in his name, and he kept calling everyone else noobs n sh!t, but he was terrible. Didn't get a kill in like 20 minutes, and even I killed him like 5 or 6 times (and I'm really not very good). He kept resetting his stats every time he got killed, too.
