E-Sport News: CS:GO - Changes to some maps

The new patch for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive mainly brings changes to several competitive maps.

The latest update of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive mainly brings changes to the competitive maps. Four maps from the current pool were changed by Valve in this update. Cache gets some small optimizations like a radar update, visibility improvements and minor bug fixes. On Train, there is one big change besides visibility fixes: The skybox that separates Ivy from the A-spot has been opened completely. So the attacking Ts can now throw new smokes to make it easier for them to capture the bomb site.

Change to Dust2 causes a furore

The longest-serving map de_dust2, which was released in March 2001 and is available in all games of the Counter-Strike series, has dusted off an innovation. The skybox above the catacombs in front of the B-spot has been opened. This allows the advancing Ts in CS:GO to take the B-Site with an organized wall of smoke grenades for the first time. This change will significantly alter the meta on Dust2, a solo player on the B-Spot will find it very difficult to master a coordinated attack in the future.

Mirage gets several new features

Mirage gets most of the changes. A new AWP wallbang has been added to the A-spot, allowing T-players to shoot from the palace towards the plateau or jungle. In the middle, the T-entrance has been widened, and recently a bench has been added next to the Connector entrance, allowing players to jump into the window. This was previously only possible by a boost from a Teammate.

From the new bench, you can also take a new angle to peek in the direction of B-short. At the B-spot a jump-peek in direction Kurz was removed, and the border of the balcony in front of the apartments was shortened.

Challenge for the pros

Especially for the professional Counter-Strike players, it is now important to find the optimal grenade lineups as fast as possible to benefit from the changes. In the coming days and weeks, it will become clear which tactics promise the greatest success. It is noticeable that most of these changes play into the hands of the offensive T-side. Therefore, the balance of power on these three cards could change significantly in the future.
