The CSGO meta of 2014-15 saw the economy being one of the key factors in the game. We have seen teams carefully manage their economy in order to secure the best possible buy in future rounds. Of Course it added a very tactical aspect to the game which was enjoyable for people to watch.
The best rounds in CS used to be the ones w/ money control potential, putting incredible pressure on players.
That no longer exists.

The current state of CSGO sarees exceptional usage of the pistols. A pistol which usually costs around $500 in game, can be as lethal at times as a $3200 M4. It is important for Valve to distinguish a weapon and give it the advantage that it deserves due to its higher price.
