Yeah, I lived and breathed CS pretty hard for a good 2 years or so. Played with a lot of good clans like The Short Yellow Bus, etc. Dunno if I could go back to it now though. Being not as young and twitchy as it were. Still CS was a fucking blast when playing with good people on a good server.

I used to think the same thing but it's all about just getting into the groove. The thing with twitch games is that you need to play them almost exclusively, it's really hard for me to be competitive in CS if I play something slower paced like Civ 5 in between sessions. CS is a strange game that way, once your instincts and reflexes attune to the game again you will have no problem nailing twitch shots and pulling off shit you did in your younger days. You might not just have the same skill ceiling as you used to is all.

Anyways picked this up, see some of you this weekend!
Playing: XCOM 2, Diablo 3
Watching: American Crime, Regression
