I personally do wish that the new Black Mesa deathmatch would be more like HL1DM, so that it could bring in the AFPS crowd.
I do. Still sad about Quake Champions. I have found memories of playing hl1dm. when servers were packed and boot camp was full. The routes you develop while running that maps, like Datacore, go for the m203 rounds, jump jets, shotgun was a 2 shell monster insta kill. Stalkyard was fav though. And how great were tripmines?!
