No More De_Dust 2?! Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Update for 2/3/17 (1.35.6.6)

No More De_Dust 2?! Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Update for 2/3/17 (1.35.6.6)

In the wake of the ELEAGUE Major (congratulations Astralis!), we’re making a change to the map pool: Inferno has returned to Active Duty, replacing Dust II, and will be featured at the next CS:GO Major. As in the past, the updated Active Duty pool is automatically selected when you enter Matchmaking.*

And in Casual and Deathmatch game modes, it’s now a bit easier to play your favorite maps. Map groups have been separated into additional categories: Active Duty, Hostage, Reserves, and Dust II.

*(don’t worry, it’s just as easy as ever to play Dust II. It’s now front and center on the Competitive Matchmaking map selection screen)

CSGO

  • Replaced Dust II with Inferno in the Active Duty Group.
  • Created a separate Dust II map group for Casual and Deathmatch game modes.
  • Separated Reserves Group into Reserves Group and Hostage Group.

MISC

  • By default, players can now apply graffiti quickly by pressing and releasing the graffiti menu key. This can be disabled from the graffiti menu via checkbox. To alleviate any initial confusion from this change, we added one extra charge to all unsealed graffiti.
  • Optimized water materials used in Inferno, Nuke and Aztec maps.
  • Added convars mp_teamscore_max, mp_teamscore_1, mp_teamscore_2 to display best of N maps series in the spectator UI.
