CS:GO update - the latest changes to the world's best FPS

CS:GO update

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive isn’t updated like other esports. While the likes of League of Legends and StarCraft 2 spend weeks testing every small change, CS:GO’s come out of the blue. While Dota 2 will reinvent itself every three months, CS:GO’s changes are so subtle you might not even notice them logging in from day to day. To help facilitate you in noticing this, we’re going to track the latest updates to the game in this post. Each time Valve upgrades the game, we’ll let you know what’s worth worrying about, what isn’t, and provide as full a changelog as able.

If this isn’t enough change for you, try one of the other best FPS out there.

CS:GO's latest version was released on January 12. 

Boston 2018

100 Thieves have withdrawn from the Boston 2018 Major.

  • Their sticker is no longer a valid game piece for the Boston 2018 Pick’Em Challenge. The sticker and graffiti are no longer available for purchase directly or through the ELeague 2018 Boston CS:GO Major Championship Mega Bundle.
  • Boston 2018 Attending Legends (Holo/Foil) Capsule and Autograph Capsule are now available for purchase (these capsules do not include 100 Thieves).

Miscellaneous

  • Compatibility versions of official maps now show the official name of the map in the scoreboard.
  • Added missing drop shadow on team logo for Sunny autograph stickers.

The update is roughly 5 MB in size. You can check out the full notes via the Counter-Strike blog or on Reddit via wickedplayer494, to whom, as always, thanks.

I played over 400 hours of CSGO and I have to say the Devs are doing nearly nothing compared to the immense attention their game gets. It must be the same phenomenon when thousands of flies sit on a pile of shit they draw in the attention of more flies

What do you even want them to do, besides get better servers for competitive

Work on really basic things like the worst in class mouse issues if you turn on Vsync that have been around since TF2.

That's an easy enough fix. Just turn off v-sync. If we're gonna talk engine level shit they may as well work on the netcode which has been pretty mediocre in Source engine since the start. Hopefully they do that with Source 2

According to who? Is Justin Bieber's music the best in the word if it's played more than any other music?

Shame all the shotguns except the mag-7 sound exactly the same and possibly even use the same file for their sounds. Also they do not sound like shotguns at all.

I threw up in my mouth at the title, CS:GO is trash and needs to be put down like the dog it is. low system requirements not a good game doth make.

Well, why do you say that, I have spent a great deal of time on other fps games, and i find CS:GO the most fun. Battlefield was never my favourite, however I did play Black ops 2, and 3 and enjoyed both a lot, even though i am better at the 2, and am bad at CS:GO i enjoy it more. It is a harder game with a steep learning curve and demands team play, while the other 2 do not. I have no intention of hating other games i would just like to ask why you like others/dislike this one.

Bloody idiotic. Another cash-grab from Volvo.

The exclusiveness of the pins is no more....
