Sounds interesting.

I'm not a fan of round based games, but we'll see how it goes. I can't stand waiting for respawn when I just want to play.

The new "Alpine" theme looks fantastic though. I really like it.

If by "gameplay of CS" you mean "in both games if you die you're out," then yes.

I'm more excited about the new environment in the lumberyard arena map! A very welcome break from the desert maps!

Same here.

I wish they would make a single player game of some sort using the characters and art style of this game.

So glad it isn't desert/industrial. Valve needs to make more maps with green.
