RANT: The worlds worst mod!

Hi all,
i've been messing about with a few mods for the past few days. And i have to say that i have discovered the worlds worst mod ever!

It's GunGame for CS:S. Basically, you start off with a Glock pistol, and as you kill one person, you get a more powerful weapon. You can probably see where this is heading. How the ****, is a glock, supposed to win against an automatic, or more powerful semi-automatic weapon without having luck on your side? I mean, that doesn't even test skill, it test how stupid the other people are. If you started off with a more powerful weapon and then got slowly degraded to the glock, then i could see it, that would test skill, but what were the coders thinking when they designed it? "oooh, mst shw world how much i cn pwn n00bzors"? Personally, it's wrong in theory as well as practice. It's like spreading butter on bread before you've put it in the toaster; incredibly bloody stupid.

I've also tried CS:S surf mod. It's not a mod as such, more like specially designed maps. It seems like a good idea but there's no training maps readily available.

Anyway, end of rant.

OH!

THIS type of mod.

When I clicked the thread on the front page, my heart stopped as I thought to myself..

'A bad case mod? No way on Earth..'

But a bad game mod.

Ooooohhhhhhh.

Meh, I've never liked CSS. So boo to you. =(

I loved that mod. It DOES test skill in my opinion. I mean when you watch a series like 24, how often is Jack Bauer using a machine gun? Pah - he takes them all out with a pistol.

I was able to do it. You can't just slag something off because you can't do it.

Meh, gungame is hard at first, but after you get good and win a few rounds its a lot more fun, and yeah, I think it is a test of skill to a certain extent - at the end of the round when everyone is on automatic rifles the leader must use knife / grenade to get his last kills... which is rather hard!

The thing i don't understand about it is that you start off with the worst weapon, and then as people progress to higher levels, you tend to get killed too much so you can't progress. Ok, shotgun + long range map = big no no, but when you're getting attacked from across the other side of the map with a MG, and all you have is a glock, then it's unlikely you've got much chance.

And yeah, i try to aim for the head, but considering i don't get many close-range encouters with enemies, that alone is pretty difficult, and even if you do get a headshot, with a glock, it still takes at least 2 to kill them. Believe me, i've tried with someone who appeared to be AFK.

And lol, you sigged part of my post!
