Jordyb liet weten dat de voor deze week geplande release van Counter Strike 1.3 niet door zal gaan. Volgens de laatste update op Counter-Strike.net kunnen we 1.3 binnen twee weken verwachten, inclusief nieuwe goodies zoals voice communications:
As you can tell, the anticipated "first week" of September has come and gone. Things change quickly with large releases like this, so I can only give my best estimate. Now it's looking like in the next 2 weeks (hopefully next week, but that could change). There are a lot of factors, such as Retail and Mod version issues lining up with Half-Life patches to support the new Valve technology. Regardless, we really think you guys are going to like the voice communication and proxy spectator mode -- both new features will add great depth to all Half-Life mods. We've tested the voice comm even on the slowest connections; everybody will be able to enjoy it. Keep an eye on cs.net -- things are about to get crazy.
