maybe the non-competitive modes will allow larger teams.

Well yeah they intend to separate the competitive mode from casual mode. I'm pretty sure the casual play will be like traditional CS. They said competitive will have matchmaking, which I'm sure will be a lot like L4D's matchmaking system.

And even if they do limit the sizes, I'm sure a mod will come out that increases the max server size. I know there's a mod that allows 8v8 in L4D.

This. The poster of that video seems to have suckered in a lot of people though.

I seriously hope they do actually add in some good map specific player characters, such as Gearbox were doing when they were working on CS years ago:

Counter-Strike Online was just some CS mod made by Nexon of South Korea. It just has some new weapons and player models, a crappy cluttered UI and a bunch of different zombie modes. That trailer really hyped things up too much.

I am really excited to see what they do with this but I will be honest I will be pissed as hell if there is only like two new maps and the rest is just a revamped de_dust and all the other default maps from CS and CS:S. I refuse to play those maps, which would stop me from buying this game if that's all it offered. People always tell me "the gameplay is so solid on the old default maps". Well here is an idea, take the layout and give it a new freaking theme and call it something totally different. The name "dust" should be retired...

I believe they're heavily modifying most of the stock maps except for some slight modifications to dust.

This. If they're going to make a new CS, make sure it's actually new and not CSS with updated maps.

Guess I'll put my CS:S map on hold for a while.
