    Hi

    Just finished HL2 (what a crap ending!!) and decided to try this CS Source that came with it. I haven't really played any online games for years, since being put off with the terrible lag from the old dial up. But just played a few games and it is amazing, on broadband there is no lag or anything.

    My question is are there any decent and friendly servers that people recommend. I have just picked a few at random and, not wishing to offend anyone, they are full of obnoxious foul mouthed weirdos.

    Any recommendations for good friendly servers.

    Thanks
    Greg

    id like to know the same question. ive been playing with the bots on normal to familierise myself with the game,maps etc. having never really played before it would be nice to start on a level playing field with a few people, seeing as some of these CS gamers have just been playing this one game like forever. i hear what your saying btw about the servers. i was in one for about 10 mins and every other word was an obsenity and im talking racist remarks and all. apprently im the :censored: gamer ever because its my first time at the game :rolleyes:

    and you know they are mostly made up of spotty 14 year olds! (no offence to any spotty 14 year olds out there)

    Maybe we should have an AVForums clan??

    what ya mean no offense its probably totally true. id play with a clan but wouldnt be officially in one. purely because i play a wide variation of games online and couldnt dedicate my time to regular team training, playing etc so it wouldnt be fair. but maybe just a mass get together of people now and again were us "newbies" can get slaughter'd and have a right laugh

    I know what you mean about the language. Some of the American servers are pretty bad in that respect. If you can put up with playing with University students I play on the University of Newcastle servers. 20 players on each team but unfortunately they'll almost always full :( . Another server I play occasionally is the PC Format one, again usually full, but they have a no swearing or foul language policy.

    Anyway if you do find a decent, non swearing, gentlemanly server, preferably noob friendly, post it up here as I'd be very interested in such a thing. Even better if you find someone to host one.

    You can have quite good fun on CSS with mouthy asswipes. Flashbanging them whenever you get the oppportunity is a really good way to pee them off. Asking them if they fancy you or something is also a good way to get 14 year olds to shut it. Standing right behind them so you block them retreating is also a good technique.

    I no longer play Halo2 online as I got fed up dealing with 12 year old american kids . There are not as many good ways to wreak havoc on someone in Halo2 as there are in CSS.

    Some one should ask Stuart Wright if it would be possible for him to create a dedicatied server just for members of these forums. I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard for him to set up?

    Its costs money though - you need a reasonable server + connection to host a game

    ---- plus you need to administrate it

    Hmm....I'd be willing to pay but I guess the administration side of things would be a problem.

    The Newcastle Uni servers aren't bad, don't seem to have too many ****s on there. Tried the PCZone server and just because I was starting to kill a few people they were accusing my of being a hacker. What a bunch of *****
