Valve has released a new update to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Hats for everyone!
Perhaps the most noteworthy part of the update, Valve has fixed a well-known issue related to reloading. Firing a gun after canceling reloading should now work as it is supposed to.
Moreover, Valve has decided to add some holiday cheer into the update. In true Team Fortress 2 manner, hats have been added to the game, but only for the Christmas holiday. However, the hats will only be displayed during the kill camera scene.
You can find the full change log below:
- Added the ability to commend and report players from the player details view that can be accessed in the scoreboard.
- Number of competitive wins, and unique commendations are now shown in the main menu along with skill group.
- Competitive scoreboard will show number of competitive wins needed to display your skill group if you have not displayed it yet.
- Fixed movement on ladders ignoring the walk button. Now climbing ladders while holding walk is slow and silent, which fixes previous exploit of being able to climb ladders at fullspeed without making sound.
- Fixed failure to fire after weapon switching away from a reload and back (fake-reloading).
- Whitelisted tv_password convar to set GOTV password.
- Reduced fps in main menu when not connected to a server from 300 fps to 120 fps to help with laptops and desktop video cards doing excessive work. Exposed fps_max_menu convar to control fps in main menu.
- Added one more minute of grace period for players to reconnect to their competitive match before a cooldown for failing to reconnect is assigned. Cooldown for failing to reconnect is now assigned after player has remained disconnected for at least 4 minutes, not counting the round of disconnection and not counting the round in which 4 minutes grace period elapses.
- Fixed Hammer crash on exit.
- Added some holiday cheer.

I played an arms race as soon the patch finished (just a couple of minutes after it was released). Maybe the matchmaking wasn't working, but it wasn't completely down.

They were aimbotting and speedhacking their balls off.
These are their steam accounts:

I heard they were actually fixing up EAC on matchmaking servers from a friend of mine who knows one of the developers.
I have no idea in regards to when it'll be done though.

Only CT weapons should have silencers, and famas isn't so good for a silencer since it has burst-mode imo
If so, rzyx was right when he wrote #31 D: ... If not, i hope you have good luck getting some more followers :D
Did I say that out loud?
Dont worry... i guess none was around when you said that :D mmm... good luck in the search for tasty followers tho :3
Though, it's a lot better excuse than saying I'm whoring my twitter :P
See the hat? F2P is right around the corner bud. Ah yea and some more cool hats too probably.

2 -- You are correct that CSP is a 1.6 clone. This is because 1.6 was the competitive standard in objective-based team FPS's for more than ten years. 1.6 has slowed due to a lack of graphical/HUD/convenience updates, and a splitting of community brought by the release of Source and GO.
3 -- The goal of CSP is to make a version of CS that will always play the same, even when new game engines come out. This brings continuity to the game, keeping players watching (because the game they use to play is still the game being played in the future, even though it looks nicer) and does not force older players to relearn things like recoil and movement. Additionally, keeping things constant allows for objective comparisons of players who have played many years apart (think about comparing ksharp or steel to fliflarren or whoever). You don't see euro football, gymnatics, or basketball leagues changing the rules of their sports every five years and we shouldn't do that in gaming, either.
This all being said, yes, we should all be playing and supporting CSP.
2 - It has no chance of bringing many other players than from 1.6 though. And most probably only those that don't play GO. Problem is, CSP is (with it's graphics) years and years behind now.
3 - Well then that just means there's nothing new to it. It does force players to learn new things, any other ones than those coming from 1.6. Obviously your point about gymnastics football etc. isn't very good when nobody is changing the rules of a game, they change the game itself. How can you even compare FPS gaming to real sports? It's just impossible. If you were comparing FIFA to real football, fine, do it, don't do it with FPS games.
I'm not saying GO is better than CSP in any way (I mean for everyone, for me it is), i'm just saying CSP won't bring new players since it's a clone of a game that mostly older players play. I think if you took a look at CSP players statistics, you'd see mostly people 20+ years old playing it ("actively"), which just means it will die as much as 1.6 started to after the years.
I'd be more than glad if FPS community started playing one same game, it just cannot happen though.

When you are in the first smoke, you can see him lolz
I'm tired of, "the game plays realistically therefore it must be fun and balanced" this is not a logical way of thinking in a video game.
Some of the best games ever are only the best because old software is plagued with bugs that made the game unrealistic yet incredibly enjoyable.

Get used to things or just quit or end you life w/e.
I'm simply stating that realism should be left out of gaming it has no place in an unrealistic world. This has nothing to do with 1.6 or GO
regardless I still do feel restricted in GO and if you read the rest of my messages you'll see that I,m trying to keep an open mind about it as well.

It's really hard to do a new crosshair and decrease aim punch?
Still don't understand the fuzz about the silencer, there are more important things to do than that....
Recoil and movement, like many keep whining about... remember: this isn't 1.6!
Movement, you get used to it after some hours of play (and i played 1.6 since it got out, so that isn't an excuse), and recoil, it can have a little fix, but not much, it isn't that bad. I'm more bored about weapons that i never played before on 1.6, now being overpowered...
Overall, CS:GO is nice, and it was about time there was something new. :)
recoil is new, but can be controlled, pro players do it.
So there won't be 1.6 recoil, if you want to be good, just play more and more and stop asking for something that is just fine. (because you can't kill as in 1.6, is not an error)
Practice instead of whining = win
And yes, I want the recoil update, to see how it will change the game.
Don't take everything so personally. :)

About M4, they should maybe make it a little more accurate, but not too much..
tried spraying with scar?? let me show a clip on esea l8tr when i get back home vs lemondogsmix
hahahaha was quite fun how they got mad
Csgo is actually the hardest csgo thats why player like scream are so good with their aim.
you can only spray with pm .(i dont think its a bad thing that pm are goood , but just need a bit nerf )
cs 1.6 & css was just ak awp m4 usp glock mp5 deagle. Now you can see dual elite strategy (buykey) some shotgun , and also p90 or smg p250 (in pro game i mean this isnt a troll weapon anymore)
Usually guys like screaM who patiently picks his shots accurately while their enemy is aldready spraying are actually winning their duels and this would never happen in 1.6 pro level.

Not the best example but spare me
Stop playing balls with people with these unnecessary things.

Still so many important things to fix/tweak:
I do not hate 1.6, but I don´t like it. There are to many people that can´t accept that GO came out. If you "dislike" it, don´t play it and keep you're word for yourself.

Still don't understand the whining about the silencer, there are more important things than a damn silencer.
Recoil and movement, like many keep whining about... remember: this isn't 1.6, get over it!
As for movement, you get used to it after some hours of play (and i played 1.6 since it got out, so that isn't an excuse), just go on and play, you'll get the hang of it pretty fast.
Recoil, it can have a little fix, but not much, it isn't really that bad. Sprays are more tricky, you actually need to be more careful when you do it, and more precise with the bursts. I'm actually more bored about weapons that i never played before on 1.6, now being overpowered...
Overall, CS:GO is nice, and it was about time there was something new to play.
In the end, haters are gonna hate, it was always like that, and it will always be, just like when there was the change from 1.5 to 1.6 and when CSS came out, in the end, stop whining and just play the version you like the most, you aren't paid to play, so just stick with what you like and stop whining!
My phone sucks so it inserts random periods just ignore them.
You don't usually see pro's doing this kind of whining (not as much at least) in the end they just move on with what they need to do, adapt and give feedback to improve, and that's not what you see in the majority of people in here, plain and simple.
CS:GO is not 1.7! So why would it have same movement/recoil/maps as 1.6? What would be the point if all they want is a copy of 1.6? even if better graphs were the thing with all the same game engine, just play promod.
I have seen people in this so called "community" whine for everything that gets their life any different. Even when starcraft2 came out, i don't remember this amount of whining because of the transition (and we are talking about a game with a player base almost as big or even bigger than CS), and in the CS player base, this kind of situation is constant. People are never happy!
In the end, "play what you like to play" is exactly the point, don't like CS:GO? Don't play it! Don't like it as it is now, but you want to see it better? Give good feedback, constructive one so the game can in fact be improved! «F1x r3coil!!1!!» is not feedback!!
I thought that in the end, after so many years, the CS "community" would be older and wiser, but that is just utopic, I can see that the "older and wiser" just stay away and let the kids play, but that isn't healthy either, it is actually, very frustrating.
Enjoy the game, if you like it play, If you don't then unistall.
