SK @ the Digital Life, New York

I am sitting here at the John F. Kennedy Airport east of Manhattan and thinking about this wonderful weekend here in New York. The Digital Life exhibition was on at the Javits Center and Toxic and myself were the only SK members throughout the event. A new experience since we are usually more than two of us. Toxic arrived on wednesday me on thursday. He had -you could call it- a little holiday on thursday before the tournament started. During his matches I started long walks into town to check out the most famous sites and places. I realy enjoyed being a *ucking tourist this time. Before I came here and thought of Manhattan I didn't have any kind of imagination how big this whole thing is. First of all it is impossible for me to describe this to you. Checking out my pictures in the SK gallery might give you a slight impression. From the Central Park over Times square, up the Empire State Buildung, down Broadway, past Greenwich Village down to Battery Park, around Ground Zero..too much to see. After being here I hope I did not miss out on anything important. But there is always a second time, this time for sure. The tournament went pretty well for Toxic. His strongest opponent was av3k from serious Gaming. When he turned up, I was like ??WTF?? He is 15 years old, comes from Poland and is a pretty little guy but a bloody good player for his age. At the end of the day I can only say that a visit to NY is bloody worthwhile!

One day I started playing Counterstrike, it was Beta2 between 1999 and 2000. To that time we were maybe 80 Clans in the Clanbase Germany and everyone new everyone. The ESL wasn't even born, it was called DECL and was not nearly as interesting as the clanbase. Practice Clanwars were totally out, noone actually bothered to practice for a coming up proper clanwar.
The atmosphere between the players in those times were just marvelous. No flames, no swear words and no teasing. At one point of the counterstrike development always more and more people started to buy and play the bloody game. God knows why everyone chose especially this game. The boom started around cs 1.0 I would say. This is were I come to the point. I feel like that I belong to the "basis" of the counterstrike scene in Germany. With the other clans we built up a kind of community that lived in a total harmony. From time to time though the game became quite easy to learn and people only playing the game 3 months were so talented that they played as well as we did. The new players sort of took over the scene and always more oldschool players went inactive. In the German EPS this isn't much different. Out of 16 clans there are maybe 100 professional counterstrike players, and only maximum 5 out of the old times. Somehow sad.
