    So i personally am getting sick and tired that the secrets for practically EVERY map are quickly getting fucked over since everyone knows them, if mappers are willing, i was hoping we could slightly alter them, then go back to guarding them intensely

    It's not going to matter, bc the secrets will just get leaked out again and then you'll have noobs over running them again. The best thing to do is have maps that you have to actually use skill to get to certain spots.

    No offense but I think this is a bad idea. It's kind of not very encouraging to players who don't know them to have to get in.
    I think they should be seen as like a cade, because more often than not they require a few steps to get in which makes them able to be held off.
    It's one thing to get a lot of zombie kills but it's another to sit in a spot, that sometimes can go and make everybody have to wait what seems like an agonizing few minutes of sitting around for the next round.
    In a game as fast paced as CS:S that can feel like a lifetime to be able to get to play again with some kind of action.

      Security through obscurity NEVER works (by itself).

      I don't really think the "secrets" were meant to be a secret; secret spots are boring anyways (if nobody tries to get you from them). Just go to your secret spot and chill their the entire round?

      I pretty much agree with this. Secrets are eh, sure they're fun to us as veterans but to a new player who has no idea on a new map they're disheartening at best.

      And as stated above, the very same thing will happen - they will get leaked and then we're back to square one.

      I tell people map secrets all the time, how much fun can you really have sitting in a spot that no one knows how to get to?

        ^ Loves to make like 20 versions of the same map, but secrets alter monthly since he hates when others know them.

        Secrets only remain secrets for so long. If someone wants to find out the secret, they will find it no matter what.

        Plus, you could just decompose the map using something like Hammer and look for the secret; you could even find glitches and open holes inside of maps, etc.

        Haven't you heard? "Two can keep a secret if one of 'em is dead." Wise words. Secrets never last. Go fuck yourself if they do.

        Or you can just spectate the person. When I was new I used to just google the secrets, then act like a pro.

          I think it is good to share secrets and tricks with people. There are players that I have shared secrets or tricks with that I have never seen before and they become a regular on the server all of the sudden. I think they continue to join to use the secrets or tricks they have learned and to find out more. Usually there is an unsaid rule to not stab people at secret spots. Obviously if you stab somebody in a secret spot while you are a zombie and go there next round as a CT while they are a zombie then you are gonna get wrecked. It's all fair game though. Veteran players are usually gonna survive regardless of if they are in a secret spot, built a strong cade, hiding somewhere, or running around the map. I don't find it that disheartening. It's just like any other game. Veterans are typically gonna survive and achieve things new players cannot fathom doing yet. Dying is part of the game too. You aren't always gonna be safe in a secret spot.

          There is one player that has no mercy in a secret spot. Nebula? I forget. I usually bitch in admin chat about him, lol. It happens. I have no mercy on him either. Fair game.

            See what Aprz is implying? Nebula must die.

                why is secrets so important

                Edit: On another note, we shouldn't be responsible for your inability to keep a secret.

                Because secrets scream to be gossip about.
