After seeing results at dreamhack, and online games, I think it will be split into a few different player groups,
1st - At the top you'll have the top 1.6 players, like get_right, forest, neo who are just in a league or their own and will probably get to the top of GO like they did in 1.6, they have won tournament after tournament and stuck to 1.6 as they were so taleneted and making money.
2nd - you will have the naturally talented players like weber,rattlesnake, kennys, nbk, hughsy, re1ease, ones who you just watch and think "how the fuck did he do that" these will still be a step behind the top 1.6 teams, much like they were at 1.6 (i remember a finnish guy slating rattlesnake for never being able to beat a top 1.6 team?) i just dont think they have that extra ability which the above bracket has.
3rd - then you'll have the top source teams, players that were in the next bracket down, 4th-5th place down on source tournament final standings... just falling short - henryg, ritch, angeldust
4th - then i think you will have players like batham, zed, neiL etc... ones who were good at source but never really made a massive impact, until the very late stages of cs:source. maybe a few keen cod4/bf3 players who are willing to put time in to learn the game.
All in all i think its going to be a really exciting scene, reminds me a lot of when cs:source was released and everyone was pumped about learning a new game, just there seems to be a lot more money pumped into it
