    Hi

    I was wondering if anyone could recommend a friendly newbie server, I'm a new player to online games and are looking for a server not full of idiots who hurl abuse at the new girl and then go on to tell me that I'm shouldn't be playing, Yeah I know I'm rubbish but we all gotta start some where, yeah?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Hi Scarlett,here are the ip's of the servers I usually play on,I wouldnt say they are noob servers but they are noob friendly,if there is such a thing in Counter Strike ;)

    195.149.21.101:27035 -SMMR server is where I usually play,they dont allow autosnipers(which is sooooo nice)and they dont tolerate abusive idiots.Il keep an eye out for you there.

    some other decent servers:

    83.142.52.8:28015 -{uk}{uk}server ,theres some good range of skill on this server and usually a good crack.

    83.142.52.29:28015 -EMO Server,although its rarely full this server has LOADS of custom maps in rotation,so ideal for when you get sick of the usual maps.Good thing about the customs is noone really knows the maps very well so everyone is "noobed up" :D

    Have fun.

    Ok,slight change,dont go near the SMMR server with a barge pole :nono:
    I was on there last night,and after starting a new map ,I killed the main admin(SMMR Fireball)in the first 2 rounds then suddenly found myself "slayed by admin fireball"at the beginning of the next few rounds.

    After this happened a couple of times with no explanation of why he was doing it,I stated it was beginning to get irritating,to be fair ,at this point the other admin did ask him why he was doing it ,but surprise surprise no explanation.After about 5 rounds of this(the rounds were quite short thankfully)I typed that he needs to grow up,as slaying me 5 times just because I killed him twice was quite imature;at which point,he told me to say goodbye and kicked and banned me!

    TBH,I was a bit peed off as it was quite a decent server and its so much better playing on a server with no autosniper,but unfortunatley you have sad people like this Fireball :censored: as admins,who just get off on wielding that little bit of power....what a sad little man he must be :rotfl:

    Anywhoooo,I am also on the hunt for a new decent server now,preferably 1 which doesnt allow autosnipers,so if anyone knows of any,let us know :smashin:

    I had similar experiences when I started to play a few months ago. The best thing to do is just leave the server if they start abusive rantings and "noob" bashing. As you find better and more mature servers that you enjoy playing on add them to your favourites.
    I personally opted for servers that had experienced old skool players that I could learn from. You get a bit frustrated to start with as they're much better than you but to get better it's best to learn from the best.
    CS is one of the hardest games I've played with a very steep learning curve. You have to invest quite a lot of time to get good which goes some way to explaining it's addictive nature imo.
    I frequent the following servers and your welcome to join me for a game anytime. It might save you a bit of time trawling for decent servers too:D

    A-Lan WW Counterstrike clan server 83.245.15.134:28065
    X51/Counter-Strike Source #1 82.136.16.64:27025
    X51/Counter-Strike Source #2 82.136.16.64:27035
    A-Lan [T-OcUK] Clan server 83.245.15.133:28025
    A-Lan Public Server 83.245.15.133:27015

    If you want to go further and play with the same people every day/week then you may wish to join a clan at some time. Alternatively I recomend using xfire which allows you to add people to your freinds list. You can instant message to arrange a game and even join your freinds game at any time. It's a very usefull tool and is easy to use:D

    Hope to see you in the field soon [WW] Hawklord ;)

    Scarlett uk: Im fairly new too... firstly can i agree with Mr jason B about SMMR, they seem to be pretty immature (Although i did have a few good games early on!)
    I mostly use Jolt servers now... Oldliners are a good bunch, and a friend of mine belongs to a clan called The cleaners who are most forgiving when you make a team kill!!! (As long as you apologise!!!) Whoops!
    One other useful tip maybe to change your screen name to something less feminine! saw a player called sarah who got some stick!Bad i know untill you get some skill then you can kick some boy butt!

    I changed to the alias "Lady Muck" and couldn't believe the amount of harrasment and sexual inuendo I received. I finally got kicked by the admin though for having a better score than them 24-8 iirc. Couldn't hack being beaten by what they thought was a girl :rotfl: I feel the average age of the players is probably 16 ish or so and for someone my age it feels a bit like going back to kindergarten again (I'm 38 btw).

    Sure know what you mean... its tough finding decent servers eh! even then any **** can turn up! they are out there for us more mature players. I really love CSS though and when you get a good bunch you can have a great game! Just a case of the sweet and the sour i guess!
    Think i might change my screen name to 36DD for the evening just to see what you mean Hawklord...LOL

    I'm reluctant to ban it completely because you still need to be able to counter someone using one in clan matches. I do not mind it being used from time to time especially if the team using it is playing catch up, but, if a whole team start using it for no reason other than racking up the kills then I'll be the first to step in and restrict it.;)

    Fair enough I suppose,Ill just pester you to restrict it everytime you are online ;)

    I was surprised you didnt have any custom maps on there though,Ive played some very good maps,some of the old classics like Assault and Inferno and even some new maps like View.IMO the limited selection of official maps can get a bit repetetive :boring:

    Nice friendly server is:

    BBKs (British Born Killers) - ip 195.149.21.127:27015.

    Been in the CS scene since 1999 some members being in BBK for 4 or 5 years. All tend to be older more mature players :)

    Hi again.. im using mostly jolt servers like "oldliners" my game tag is zatoichi. But myself and some workmates are starting our own soon and alls welcome, were all in it for a good fun game and foul play or rudeness will result in slaps and the boot!
    Its not easy to keep tag of friends so were using x-fire ( Free download from x-fire.com ) its great for finding people in game. Theres a find friend option which you use to add them... my user name is zatoichi1967, you can see my friends,what game im in and everything.....its really cool!
