Cheats are evil. I used cheats and that made the game less fun, and I didnt really get any gaming skill. I stopped using cheats a while ago and noticed that I got much better in gaming, Now so many servers are anti-cheat. I play Day Of Defeat 2.0 alot now and niticed how my score is getting higher and higher day by day. Before I would be in the bottom half, now i'm in the top 3! I suggest you quit using cheats. Sorry about the length. Didnt mean to lecture or anything. :)

Shame on you people. cheats? bah...
then again, i used to cheat during the nintendo/sega/turbografx days but did not on pc games. I guess i grew out of it.

I still have my moments in cs, but hey... i just have to remind myself just to have fun; regardless win or lose.

just play and have fun!

Well, instead of dogging cheaters, I'm going to make some recommendations that'll help you get better.

First, play with other people ON A LAN. You don't have to worry about ping times on a LAN. Check out local LAN centers, unless you can setup a LAN in your house/apartment/basement/wherever. When you're with people, there's less fear, and you don't have to worry about a bad connection. ANd people screw up far more than bots.

Speaking of Bots, if you play against them, try turning down their levels, so their easier to kill. As you improve, increase their rating.

Ask one of your friends to train you and give you tips for LAN battles. Wa11y has the right idea. Go to a LAN and just play, plus if your with your friends then you don't need to worry about being worse.

Remember, bots are dumb. Even the hardest ones are stupid compared to human players. Humans are unpredictable while bots are more scripted.

Good luck. ;)

you'll get used to it

I had the same problem. eventually, you'll get used to getting killed in the games and it won't matter anymore. at frist it may be a bit scary but remember its just a game and you will overcome that fear after getting fragged about 25 times..
