Surprised there is no thread for this already. I'm enjoying this game and plan on playing it on a regular basis. Demolition mode is fun as well as classic. I will keep this a wiki so others can edit. Testing the CAGs interest and always looking for others to play.


Information:
Wiki
Steam Forums

Game Modes:
Arms Race
Demolition
Causal Classic(10v10)
Competitive Classic(5v5)

Interesting Data

I like it and all, but I feel like I just bought Counter-Strike Source all over again. Same maps and everything. Not that the same maps are a bad thing, I just.. wish they would've thrown a few new ones in as well.

I've played a little bit of it. There's actually a bigger thread in the Xbox 360 forum, which I find kind of weird since CS was originally a PC game.

I tried to get into a game of Arms Race last night, but it wouldn't connect. Not sure if no one's playing it, or if something was wrong with it. I did manage to get into the classic games, but didn't play much. I'll probably get on more tonight though after work.

I've seen some issues with connection when selecting a game mode. Also the one I've seen a few times as well as friends of mine, it will sometimes not allow you to select a team (or anything) when switching from one map to another. Click, click...nothing, I don't remember is I ESC out or had to close down completely.

Looking at the required specs to play I thought i'd ask on opinions on how well the game will run on my computer.

Required Specs:

  • OS: MacOS X 10.6.6 or higher
  • Processor: Intel Core Duo Processor (2GHz or better)
  • Memory: 2GB RAM
  • Hard Disk Space: At least 7.6GB of Space
  • Video Card: ATI Radeon HD 2400 or better / NVidia 8600M or better
My Specs:

OS 10.8 Mountain Lion
2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
8GB 1067 MHz DDR3 Ram
NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB graphics



It's just because sometimes steam games seem to dip in performance on my MacBook, like TF2 is pretty much unplayable because of recent crashing. So I wanted to check just incase I was wasting my money on this.


Thanks for responses.

I could see your video card being an issue... Everything else seems to be fine though.

At my last job, I had the spring 2011 model MBP, with a quad-core i7 and a Radeon 6750M, it ran TF2 pretty nicely haha. The whole thing did heat up like crazy though.

I played the PC version then downloaded and tried the 360 version trial last night. The people who have been saying the 360 graphics are on par with PC are sorely mistaken or have a horribly dated graphics card. PC had sharp grahpics and solid frame-rate while 360 is muddy looking with frequent frame-rate drops.

I've been watching some footage from the xbox version and it doesn't seem to run very smooth at all.

And on my MacBooks graphic card I can run L4D2 on high / medium if that makes any difference.

I had a better processor and and a 525M video card, and the beta was all over the place for me. Sometimes I'd get like 50-60 FPS on easy, other times I'd be around 10-15. I've built a computer since I got beta access a few months back so I don't know how the final build runs on that computer though.

Been playing since March. I only pug via ESEA since everyone in pubs rages like little girls when they lose a round, and playing with bots is zero fun.

If anyone else here plays on ESEA hit me up, my name is MrBlonde.

League play, pugs where you play a full game without ragers, ridiculous stat tracking, and you play against higher quality players which in turn will make you into a better player. Its only $7 a month.

Pub stomping just isn't fun to me. To each their own though.

The real question is can you afford not to pay an extra 7$ a month for your video games?

Hit me up! Me and a couple of my buddies have been every night since right before release. Arms race is our main game mode, but we def okay everything. We are mediocre, but we love it.

Steam: dondonraiden

There are still issues from the beta that seem to have never been addresssed. Team selection freeze is still there and prevalent. You just have to crash the game, but if you are playing with a group of fun friends it's well worth the hassle

I tried playing again yesterday and got stuck in an endless loop of: load map, choose team, stare at pre-match score-board for a few minutes, immediately load another map, etc

I gave up after about 15-20 min of that

Got your add, let me know whenever you wanna play. I'm typically free after 6pm Eastern Time. I've been playing a lot of Arms Race, but I'm down for anything.

I also can only play after 6PM eastern during the week, but weekends I often play in the late mornings/afternoons. During the week I might play for an hour or two in the evenings. It also just depends on what else I'm currently playing. I've only played Classic Casual and Arms Race so far...definitely want to get better at Arms Race (I've probably only played 6 or 7 rounds but I've yet to even make it to the pistols). Anyways I'll probably be on some tonight so join in if you see me, and I'll do the same!

Arms Race is pretty fun, but I started to burn out on playing those two maps over and over again...I guess I should get off the Valve servers. There are more than 2 different Arms Race maps, right? Sofaraway and I got close to winning a few times but neither of us could....I've yet to win at Arms Race yet. I used to win Gun Game in Source every now and then, but not all Source skills carry over to GO....

Definitely hope to play with more CAGs in the future, maybe we can set up a CAG match sometime?

I bought the game last night. Started CS in beta 2 (1999 or so) and did not like Source much.. at all. This game however takes precedence over CS:S. The graphics are sharper, gameplay a little smoother, and the menus/interaction seem to have taken some notes from call of duty and other online populer games. Can't wait to play some more! :)

I'll add some people in this thread tonight to my Steam account. Is there a Steam CAG group yet? :)
