Submission + - Vancouver area school featured in CounterStrike map (

Jabrwock writes: After multiple recent incidents of gun violence in schools, Vancouver area residents, teachers, and school administrators are concerned about reports of a CounterStrike map of Port Moody Secondary School.

The map creator (who wanted to remain anonymous) responded to concerns by writing:

"Let us start by saying Port Moody Secondary is a great school. Rest assured there is no malicious intent behind this production to any actual school property, nor any actual persons associated with the school."

While the original article's headline seems to be implying the game developers made the map, they do clarify later on in the article that the game allows users to create custom maps.
