    Counter-Strike has been around for... well, forever. Wondering how long can this game really last at the top? We take an in-depth look at the latest changes, get the view of professional gamers on CS:S and get inside info on how Valve are losing the battle to stop cheats.

    Quote: "The real problem I perceive here is that it appears Valve has given up on the old 1.6 community. Some may think this is no bad thing - out with the old and in with the new - but the statistics from Valve itself would suggest otherwise. Right now, almost two years since the release of CS:S there are 34,228 players playing on 31,836 servers. Compare that to the 165,459 people playing CS right now on 83,484 servers. The gap is huge and shows no sign of getting any smaller."
