Valve’s recent decision to swap out Cobblestone for Dust 2 has received mixed reactions from the community. However, their blog post adequately confirms the fact that the Major will be using the new map pool. So we will have Dust 2 being played in the upcoming tournaments. starting with the upcoming Major and the tournaments leading up to the event.
The revised Active Duty pool will be featured at the FACEIT Major in London later this year. And don’t worry – if you were hoping to queue for Cobblestone, it’s still available in each game mode.
Lastly, we did get a heads up from Valve last night about the update. Much appreciated!
