Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Not too bothered that the sounds were changed for guns, it's fine in principle, but the new ones do feel hard to tell apart and lack a punch.

Aside from that I was browsing through the compatibility list on the workshop for old csgo operation maps and saw Agency again. Always felt like that map was more suited as an official map than some of the maps already on there. Agency for me is what Dust 2 is to most of the CS community.

I appreciate the detail I noticed in this that the annoying ass tow truck has been replaced by something much easier to climb. I doubt most people looking at that thing realized it could be crouch jumped up until they saw someone else do it.

Don't we all just try and climb everything when we play a map for the first time?

The legal fight with gambling is back with Valve and the gambling commission essentially calling a game of bluffs with eachother

GC - You're breaking gambling laws mate!

Valve - Oh yea!? Prove it!

Seems at this point the GC's problem with Valve is their lack of action past the first wave of C&Ds, sure Valve went after a list of sites, but they left a lot of them off the list, I'm still seeing ads for skin gambling sites on youtube today.

One thing people tend to forget is valve looks at old maps as well. Everyone is compiling lists of the latest submissions

My favourite series on YouTube for Counter Strike is /u/3kliksphilip's "Making of de_sparity". I loved his explanations of each stage of development and why he made the map to the point where it is today. From there I looked at other videos of this type and found a few, but not many. That series motivated me to start mapping.

This is where my interests turned to a video type that is absurdly absent from YouTube. At least not consistently. Workshop map reviews/showcases. Sure, there is a few videos here and there but not a strong series(If there is I'd like to know). 

I started a YouTube channel to showcase and give opinions about decently produced maps (not day creations). So in this way it is not reviews of maps that have a strong chance of being in the next operation, but to amateur creators who are passionate and have put some time into the map. It is a way to present a map that would normally be buried by high class mappers and give feedback. Personally I feel it is a great idea, benefiting mappers greatly.

Another video style also relatively absent is CS mapping videos, I started a live series (posting as I create the map, rather than post) of my map making journey.

(And yes I have seen the few workshop map review videos)

 

I would love your opinions and suggestions about this and hope you check the videos out.
