    CS:GO Blog Graveyard Shift

    CS:GO just got a whole lot spookier! For a limited time players can fright their way through a midnight makeover of Cobblestone. Along with Cobblestone’s haunting new look, players can torment their enemies from the grave as a ghost in Casual, Demolition, and Flying Scoutsman game modes. Spray graffiti, meet up with other undead, or just mess around with some breakable objects using a spectral ghost knife – it all makes for a scary good time! And don’t forget about the chickens – they’ve also dressed for the occasion… Happy Halloween! View the full article

    CS:GO Blog Hot and Cold

    There’s a lot to digest in today’s update, which includes some new maps, positional audio settings, and gameplay. Click here for more details! Entering the Rotation Two new maps have entered the game, Biome and Sub-Zero, and they’re currently available to play in the Casual Sigma map group. We’re measuring playtime on these (and other) maps in CS:GO, so vote with your bullets and let us know which maps should stick around! There are other changes to the map pool. Austria has been a popular Casual map, and is now available for Competitive Matchmaking (and has been moved into the Casual Delta map group), while Canals has been moved out of Competitive Matchmaking. Additionally, today we’ll be saying goodbye to Shipped and Insertion. Starting Conditions Today we’re shipping a change to the start-of-half economy aimed at reducing the immediate impact of losing a pistol round. In Competitive Matchmaking, both teams are now considered to start the half with a one-round ‘losing streak’ that is reset following a round win. Instead of $1400, the Round 1 loser receives $1900, then $2400 for a subsequent loss, etc. We’ve also made some gameplay changes to the CZ75a and the Tec9, as well as a price cut to the SG553 and AUG. So take a deep breath, dive into a match, and see what’s new! View the full article

    CS:GO Blog Winning is Everything

    In just over a week the next CS:GO Major Championship will get under way! At the opening Challengers Stage (September 5-9), we’ll watch the top two teams from each region (Americas, Asia, CIS, and Europe) battle the bottom eight teams from last Major’s Legends Stage. However, next time we will not extend an invitation to every bottom eight team from the Legends Stage. The two teams who finish 0-3 in the London Legends Stage will need to qualify through the Minors for Katowice 2019. And so, two teams will make an early exit from the Major Championship circuit. To replace them, two additional teams will qualify from the regional Minors: the third-place teams from each region will take part in a brief playoff, with the top two advancing to the main event. (In other words, two regions will send an extra team to Katowice) Which teams will live to fight another day and which two will get sent back to the drawing board? Join us in London and find out!

    CS:GO Blog Smoke Mid Every Day

    Today we’re updating the Active Duty map pool; Cobblestone is out and CS:GO’s most iconic map, Dust II, is back in! The revised Active Duty pool will be featured at the FACEIT Major in London later this year. And don’t worry – if you were hoping to queue for Cobblestone, it’s still available in each game mode. Nuke available in Wingman We’re also adding a shortened version of Nuke to the Wingman map pool. This version of Nuke features some experimental changes to the B bomb site, so queue for a match if you’d like to get a sneak peek. Casual Map Groups The casual map groups have been adjusted based on map playtime. Cobblestone has been moved into the ‘Delta’ Map group. Shipped and Austria have been moved into the ‘Sigma’ Map group. Oh, and we stomped a nasty server bug. Have a good weekend everyone! View the full article
  19. Today’s update includes a host of adjustments to Nuke, Dust II, and Canals, so jump into a match and see what’s new! Along with those map updates, we’re also making an adjustment to CS:GO item trading, described below. For details, click here. Revisiting Trade Steam trading was created to allow customers to easily exchange items with each other, and each day we see thousands of customers using Steam Trading in this way. Recently we’ve been looking into ways to reduce some negative unintended uses of trading in CS:GO (such as fraud and scams), with the goal of preserving trade between players. Starting today, CS:GO items received in trade will have the same seven-day trade cooldown as items purchased in-game or via the Steam Community Market. Over time, third-parties have developed services that use automated Steam accounts to mimic players and make use of Steam’s trading functionality. Unfortunately, some of these third party services have become a vector for fraud or scams. Unlike players, these services rely on the ability to trade each item very frequently. In contrast, a given item moves between actual players no more than once a week in the vast majority of cases. We want to make sure that Steam item trading is a useful feature that continues to provide customers with the freedom to give and receive items as they wish. However, we realize today’s change may also be disruptive to some players. We’ll continue to evaluate trading policies as time goes on, and if you have any feedback or concerns about the change you can email us at CSGOTeamFeedback [at] valvesoftware.com.

    CS:GO Blog In support of the Negev

    When we reworked the Negev last year, the goal was to identify a supporting role for the weapon. The Negev featured attributes that promoted suppressive fire — ineffective at first, but a controllable beam of death moments later. At this point it’s clear that the upside of the weapon isn’t enough to compensate for its downsides, so we’re making additional adjustments. The goal hasn’t changed, but the implementation is a little different. First, the good news: the Negev is now a little cheaper, a burst of several bullets is now more useful (at short and medium range, at least), and the “beam” starts a little sooner. With its improved ability to deal damage in short bursts, the Negev can be useful in closer engagements like the one pictured above. The bad news: the Negev now has lower armor penetration (no longer lethal to a helmet) and movement speed has been cut in half while firing; no more moving turrets. Want to get a sneak peek? These changes are currently available to test in a beta release, and will be live for everyone in the coming days. Click here for more details! View the full article
