VALVe release important update
Posted: Oct 10, 2018 Written by: do_0h

The guys behind VALVe have released an important Counter-Strike:Global Offensive update.


The most notable, the update will feature an economic change in the fact that at the start of every game both teams will start with one round loss bonus.


The move is ment to make the loss of the secondary round to pistols less impactful.


This means that the team losing the pistol round will receive $1900 instead of $1400, with subsequent losses earning them $2400, $2900 and $3400, which remains the maximum loss bonus.


The update will also make changes to the CZ-75 and TEC9 pistols.


The full log of the update is as follows:
