Had expected this to happen much sooner to be fair. I guess that's Valve Time for ya. Not too bothered, its not like the community could get much worse.

The game will soon be swarmed with cheaters.
More likely it will get swarmed with 200+ ping idiots, who'll ruin the game for everyone.
I don't play CS (the latest for me was CS:Source), but it already happened to several of my favorite online shooters.
Guess I'll have to install it now and make a nostalgic run before it turns into Team Fortress: The Hat Simulator.

It's a wonder that Valve even bothers updating this game. Even when they releases a free update with great brand new content, the community just endlessly bitches about it.

Brand new free game mode that I don't have to play? Hate it, how dare you Volvo!
F2P mode separate from the paid players to revive the player base? REEE CHEATERS

Let's just ignore the fact that for the past half year or longer Valve has been giving more and more care to CS:GO. We've already gotten a big update in Panorama (aka first Source 2 CS:GO integration) this year, for a game that came out in 2012. They've been steadily improving VAC behind the scenes with a mix of AI and Overwatch. People have reported that Prime has been mostly cheater and even troll free as long as you're not a shitty community member yourself because of Trust Factor. I've tracked my own games and seen the blatant cheaters get banned.

The game continues to improve and we get free content updates (basically a whole different game with the BR addition) for a 6 year old game most people paid $10 for; but guess that's not good enough. It takes less effort to just throw out baseless accusations like cheaters taking over so the community will just keep degrading as people making these claims ask "Why is this community getting worse?!?".

Uhm, wasn't that the case anyway ? You people do realize that kids make up the overwhelming majority of playerbases of all games out there, right ?

CS Go is one of the worst purchases I have made. I got talked into buying it out of some nostalgia for original Counter Strike (1.6) by some old high school buddies.

Couldn't have said it better myself :)

Played 2 games of BR last night with my friends, definitely feels very different from usual gameplay, little weird haha.

I will reserve judgement for now, just waiting for the early changes that will inevitably come.

Overall I'm just very happy that Valve still has big plans for this game :D

Not sure if that is different in your country, but.........here it doesn't appear to be an overwhelming majority, or a majority at all even. In fact, it's a minority. ;)

We used to do a glitch in Source Beta where we'd throw the Deagle down, hold the shield up and pick up the Deagle and it would give you this invulnerability state where you could shoot through the shield but to other players you were not holding the shield up. It was insanely OP.

The game needs a modern replacement from Valve. Just doesn't seem likely Valve is interested in making such a game anymore. Maybe they're fine with letting R6: Siege take over.

More likely game will be swarmed by kids under age of 15 and grinding bots.
At least it will have that authentic CS feel now.

I downloaded it last night having seen this thread, seems the cheaters are in already, aimbots were rife, I mean I know some players are just genuinely good but I could almost see the 190 degree turn of the weapon in the millisecond before I got head shot by the same guy like 10 times in the game.

too many head shots and i couldn't fight back
