The unimaginable horrors of CS on Source 2
Last week I was playing a tight game on Mirage. We’re on CT site. The score is 15-6 in our favour but the Ts are relentless.
Before we know it it’s 15-14. We’re under pressure and this is our last chance. “Should I really do it?” I ask my teammates. They say no.
I buy the auto-sniper anyways and mow the Ts down as they rush ramp. We win 16-14, but at what cost?
That night, I sleep horribly. I wake up soaked in sweat. I can’t believe my eyes.
There’s an airplane ticket nailed to the wall. Under it is written in blood “We know what you did”.
It’s Valve. They fly me out. They want me to test CS running on Source 2 in their headquarters.
I follow the instructions. After passing through a long corridor I sit down in the waiting room. It’s just a couch in a huge empty room.
There’s one door. After what feels like hours it opens up. Two heavily armed guards forcefully escort a man out.
The man is freaking out. He’s lost. Lost beyond words. I hear hin scream:
“THEY’RE GONE! THE DOTS ARE ALL GONE. THEY ARE GONE THE ANTENNAS ARE GONE. ALL IS RUINED THIS IS THE END. THE DOTS. THE STONES. GONE!!!”
I recognize the voice. It’s NadeKing. They ruined all his line-ups by replacing the textures with high-resolution ones.
I am next. I play. The joy. I could never describe it. It’s wonderful. The maps, the skins, they mesmerise.
After hours, I get 1-tapped out of my trance. A cheater?! In a closed beta environment? How could it possibly be?
Where’s VAC? That’s when it hits: There is no Valve-Anti-Cheat, there never has been.
“It’s all without any anti-cheat?” I ask the developers standing behind me, observing me.
After an eternity, a dark yet soft voice answers “Always has been”, pressing a cold, hard object against the back of my head.
They fire. But I survive. It was just the P250 and they nerfed that thing ages ago.
