What do the "de" and "ct" and all those in front of the map names mean/stand for?

de = defuse I think
ct = err... not sure... counter terror? :\

defuse as in defuse the terrorists bomb? that's a kind of odd naming scheme...

DE = Defuse/Destruction
CT = Counter-Terrorist

I guess...

de - destruction
cs - hostage rescue
ka - knife
fy - close quarters
as - assassination
es - escape

de - destruction
Makes sense

cs - hostage rescue
Not so much

ka - knife
Okay...there's a k in both...I guess...

fy - close quarters
What the sh*t?

as - assassination
es - escape
These two are okay, but what are some examples...like are the terrorists trying to assassinate a particular person and the CTs are defending them? I've never heard of one of these maps, and what about escape? And are there special rules for close quarters maps?

They are what they are dude. So what if they don't make sense, they aren't changing, accept them. He told you what they are, he doesn't work for Valve and doesn't know the logic behind them. Go into CSS and learn for yourself what the types you've never played are. I assure you. Just cause you've never played them, doesn't mean they aren't there

No special rules for close quarters

So what if they don't make sense? I want to know where the abbreviations came from, that's "so what." Please, show me where I said, "These are stupid and I won't accept them" because I'm dying to know where you got that thought.

Please also show me where I said that "I've never played them so they aren't there."

Look, I know for whatever reason you hate me (I have a bigger penis), but please, you're "hardass" persona is a joke and you don't offend me, you don't scare me, you make me laugh because you're pathetic and you are now on my ignore list. So please, continue your crusade against me; make fun of me, make your snide, sarcastic little comments all you want. I don't care because I am not going to waste my time reading anymore **** that comes out of your spitefilled mouth you pathetic troll.

And he TOLD you what they meant, and you STILL questioned him and complained about them "not making sense" still. Please show ME where I said "you are stupid for not accepting them"

And by saying "I assure you, they're there" it's saying "GO PLAY THEM AND FIND OUT" nothing more. Quit reading more into what people say than they actually say... sheesh...

Ah, okay...that makes sense.

I've seen a few maps titled "awp_insert name"...are those for using the AWP only (i.e. every player has one) or what?

I didn't complain about anything, unless in the fascist state of mind you currently reside in asking questions is complaining, then yes: I'm guilty of complaining. :rolleyes2

Did your teachers make fun of you when you asked for clarification on things in math class or something? Did you ever ASK questions when there was something you didn't understand? fy = close quarters...tell me, since you have all the answers, how close quarters is shorted to fy when neither of those letters appear in either word? Oh, whoops, I'm "complaining again."

And, you have a tendency to infer and read into everything I post, so I just do the same back to you to show how dumb, obnoxious and annoying it is. You didn't even quote yourself correctly: "I assure you. Just cause you've never played them, doesn't mean they aren't there" which has nothing to do with anything I said. I never said that I hadn't seen them, in fact, I wouldn't have asked if I hadn't seen the map names...that's the whole point of the thread. I wasn't disputing the fact that fy_name exists, I wanted to know what the hell fy stood for.

And now, I'm telling you for the last time: stop harassing me and stop sh*tting in my threads.

Was talking about the AS and ES maps when I said that. Which you did say, "I've never heard of one of these maps". So I encouraged you to go out and find out. Cause I assure you, they're there to play and find out on. Je suis desole

Ah, okay...that makes sense.

I've seen a few maps titled "awp_insert name"...are those for using the AWP only (i.e. every player has one) or what?

Normally refered to as "awp maps". Most of the time they just drop a line of awps in front of both teams, everyone runs and grabs one from their teams line, then the shooting begins

Most of the time. Exceptions are there, but it's the normal gist. Sniping sniping sniping

They used cs to indicate that it was a CounterStrike map back in the early days of the counterstrike beta. This was to indicate which HL mod the map belonged to, and CS was nothing but a hostage rescue game at first. It wasn't until beta 5 or so that they started adding the de maps (which meant destruction,) then in beta 6 they added es and as. I haven't seen any es maps in a long time though. I don't think ka and fy are official maps. Also I think ka would mean ka-bar, since during the early beta days of the game the knife model used to be an actual MC issue ka-bar knife instead of whatever it is now.

I remember a long time ago it used to be that you could drop the bomb in just any arbitrary location on the map, and it was one hell of a potent anti counterterrorist weapon :D On the overpass in de_dust (this was around when it first came out,) if you dropped the bomb on the down slope on the T side, it would actually slide very slowly but pick up momentum and slide its way all the way over to the CT side and they would never see it coming, and they liked to AWP ***** there so much since the awp was instant death no matter where it hit you (including the feet and toes.) The bomb would take all of them out and it made it so easy for the T's to come in and wipe out the rest of the team :D

the only assasination maps I remember that were any good was the old school oil-rig (one of my fav of all time), there was one with massive canals but I wasn't into it that much..

ct's help the guy escape... t's try to take him out...

for escape maps, there was a prison breakout map where the t's would win by escaping from the jail and out of the underground facility...ct's won by preventing escape or killing them all...

wow...see, some of these other maps sound really cool. I'll look around and try to find some of them.

There was also as_desert which later got an official release that became as_tundra (they just changed it from a desert map to a snowy map.) Might have been because the name was similar to cs_desert which was an official but way different map that was discarded in CS beta 3.

There used to be a whole bunch of AS and ES maps, but I can't remember the names of most of them.

the FY maps are kind of fun. Think DM meets elmination in a usally small place to fight. The weapons are spawned in front of you and there is usally no buy time. You pick one up and get ready to fight :)

man I almost forgot all about tundra...

that was a decent map too... dark in spots but still pretty sweet...

the only map I knew where the arctic skin worked well :D

The "cs" prefix is from when CS was still a beta and the only game mode was hostage rescue, hence "cs" for Counter-Strike. AS and ES maps were added in v1.0 if I'm not mistaken, and weren't very popular at all (except maybe as_oilrig). I enjoyed them, anyway.

There one AS map where you had to escort the VIP on to the roof top though the building was a blast. I still remember the first time I played it...took the elevator upstairs..it opened and 4 Ts with AKs showed me the error of my ways :)

There was the one jungle AS map I did not care for...I did so like the AS map woth the water cannals... ahhh they days...
