Counter-Strike Sundays30 April 2005 10:19

To help local players strengthen the community, and to help new LAN teams get the critical practice time they need, we're pleased to announce the arrival of Counter-Strike Sundays.

What in the sam hell are you talking about?
I'm glad you asked. Every Sunday, competitive CS players will receive special pricing for computer time. Single players will get our member rate of $3/hr. Teams of 4 or more will get the low, low price of $2/hr/person.
