    Reminder: ESEA is the same company fined $1m for essentially installing malware into their client, allowing them to mine bitcoin for themselves on the app users' hardware. Quality company.

    From ESEA's website

    All ESEA user account passwords are using bcrypt, an industry best practice for securing passwords.
    I'd really take that with a grain of salt, particularly if they used MD5 tokens http://cynosureprime.blogspot.co.nz/...of-ashley.html.

    TL;DR, I'd definitely take them up on their recommendation to change your password and if you've got the same pw on another site, change that too.

    Did I miss the part where they warned the users about the intruder and told them to reset their passwords?

    What does the number of players worldwide have to do with the enjoyment of the game? And I'm pretty sure you're just pulling figures out of your ass.

    I am actually a retired CS 1.5/1.6 player of 2000-2004, before they started to veto maps, ruin maps like militia and cbble (cbble in particular visually and architecturally looks nothing like it did prior to CSGO), and veto maps like aztec and dust. I went to, and worked in Internet cafes around Auckland back then (as a teenager). Game never had a decent community that wasn't full raging autist cranked up to max except now it's uglier and full of non-content like skins and ###gambling###.

    This is not even nostalgia talking, the game is simply a different game now. It was really a "you had to be there" sort of thing. CSGO is not Counter-Strike, it's CSGO.

    I've been playing CS on and off since Beta 6.5, and you're very clearly blinded by nostalgia.

    i only played 1.6 at its hay day and only returned to playing cs with csgo

    I'm not, there is a reason why this website was originally called cstrike - it was an era, but it's different now. CSGO looks, sounds, feels and plays differently now. Or do we pretend like TF2's first few years did not exist? What about WoW, Diablo 2, etc?

    The rose tinted glasses concept is a logical fallacy appealing to emotion and anecdotal so i'm not gonna bite.

    None of them, I'm just saying that game communities surrounding certain games can be considerably "toxic". CS always was, even when I played. Always has been, always will be.
