    Thanks for sharing, Mateo. This is most interesting to me. I was just having a conversation with someone today regarding in-game advertising.

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

      I'm not comfortable with the idea, but sometimes ads make the scenarios more realistic, i.e. sports games.

          Cheaper for us, yeah right! Companies are always looking for ways to give their extra, newly generated revenue back to consumers.

          Next we'll have games sponsered by major companies like all the major spots events and stadiums.

          Interesting story Mateo - thanks!

            Hey, different ads could freshen up certain overplayed maps...

                      Just thinking out loud here, but if future maps made by our members, specifically for PCS play, have appropriate settings, maybe we could add TG adds.

                        That'd be cool. I have several ideas for some cool PCS maps, except I don't know where to begin learning SDK. I toyed around with it, it just seems so much more extensive than the last level maker I used, Duke Nukem 3D's build :)

                        Regarding ads in CS, I can't say it bothers me. I am usually too focused on the game to give any attention to an ad that changes every time the map loads. Initially, I suppose, it may catch my eye, but there is advertisement in everything nowadays (commercials, popups), something I choose to ignore. I say if they aren't changing the core game, well then let them advertise.

                          It's funny I have been doing alot of studying of marketing concepts recently and with the advent of TIVO and DVR people are able to record shows and fly right past the commercials so more andmore advertisers are relying on "Stealth Advertising". Product placements in all the shows. If you have ever watched the movie Truman Show you get the idea. I didn't even think about them doing it in in games. But their are whole maps out there as well...Best Buy, MC DOnalds Etc. At least we know they are advertisements and I do think they add to the sense of reality to the map.

                          Well I am hungry ...

                          Off to Subway....

                          MMMMM
