CS: GO roster player Natus Vincere Alexander s1mple Kostylev expressed his opinion about the release of updates shortly before the start of the tournament. As an example, he cited the traditional sport, where the rules do not change before the start of the championships. Kostylev wrote about this on Twitter.
“It is sad that patches do not come out at least 7-10 days before the start of any tournament in all disciplines. I thought that e-sports became closer to traditional sports, but there people do not change the rules shortly before the start of any professional competition.
I’m not saying that Valve should not change cards or any details at all. I just want all teams in all disciplines to have more time to prepare. So the matches will become more interesting and beautiful. ”
On January 30, Valve released an update to CS: GO, with which it changed some maps. On Dust2 and Train, it became possible to make new splits, and on Mirage you can now jump onto the window yourself. Later it became known that the open qualifiers for the major ESL One: Rio 2020 will be held on a new patch.
