Recommending cvars that don't exist is absurd (especially without explanation). Also, forcing everybody to use the highest rate for everything is not a good idea. You can't assume that everybody has a good efficient PC and a real good internet connection (most do but not all).

There are enough recent threads that can be found that explain this stuff.

I'd probably recommend a decent range with the max settings at 100% of the maximum value and then the minimum at about 80% of the maximum values.

Ultimately, nobody can tell you the "best" rates for your server and your clients. Start with a reasonable range and test it for a while. You can always change the rates a little bit and see if things improve (as long as you don't tell any of your players that you changed it so that you prevent the placebo effect).

- Those are internet related commands, nothing to do with "efficient PC" or fps.
- Its 2018, litterly everybody has good internet (specially for CS:1.6 requirements).
- Nothing happens if you play with highest rate values on CS:1.6 on a low-speed internet (i tested it my self before, on a 1-2 MB speed internet and it run smooth).
- There is absolutely no point setting a minimum value to 80%, you want players to have the maximum smoothness/lagfree experience, so it must be set to 100%.

TL;DR
I have made extensive tests my self, if you happen to have a 2018 server with 2018 internet and 2018 players, then use my values, they are the BEST and highest values you can use in CS:1.6. Or you can make the tests your self and find out you wasted many hours of your life just to realize Syturio values were right.

Can somebody please delete this thread?

Someone just messaged me about "fixing server rates" and they literally copy/pasted this guy's comment, saying "These are the best rates since 2018, tested by me extensively"

I basically googled sv_maxcmdrate cs 1.6 and this thread appeared as the first result... this thread should be purged

Server's been since 2013 and maybe we already know a thing or two about rates...
