I played and ran a very successful CS 1.X server for many years. The players voted in my forums to switch to Source, in which I did. Server ended up...R.I.P. Looks like 1.x Still has MANY players. After that debacle I chose to turn it off.
The problem is that each version that came out brought on "improvements" that pissed many people off. I would hate to wonder what has "improved" with Global Offensive.

1.5 was and will always be my favorite. I just wished they would fix the snipers. They are incredibly overpowered. But, the fans would cry foul if they fixed it. Though, I'm curious if GO will tackle that. I know the shields were suppose to do that, but they were incredibly glitchy. They should have fixed it, not get rid of them.

I've always loved CS but gave it up back in 2007. I ran a server myself tha was typically always full and stayed that way even after we switched to source. Eventually it became a 24/7 office server which was still always full. I ended up moving in late 2006 and just ran out of time really for running the thing. I handed it off to some of the guys in my clan but by the end of 2007 it was only running at 1/3 full and had switched from office to some weird map i had never heard of. After that it was soon gone.

I stopped playing CS around the release of CS 1.6. It was the death of the game for me, and the server I played on every night - during the week - for 3 years went under. They stayed 1.5 though, even through all the "upgrading." They decided the game was too glitchy to be worth the upgrade, and people still came.
