In the past 6ish months they've started listening to what the people have wanted. People wanted AUG and SG nerf, and while they came months too late, they happened. Although they did nerf the AUG out of viability.
They said it at ESL NY. Also you don't need much of a change to any of CSGO maps rn. And they did a lot actually, check all the new flashes and plays you can on mid. They even made dots to help you aim nades at b.
Because I was interested to know if people actually thought r8, awp nerfs etc were actually good in their opinion.
The maps were quite shit in 2014 and could still be better in terms of colors the least
awp nerf was necessary and good in the long run and every rework so far (imo) has been great and adding mp5 was good cuz it was balanced instantly and every operation has been great also the krieg/aug price drop was great because the meta finally changed even though its closer to the old meta again but now we are seeing krieg and ak used pretty much 50/50. Those are my views on cs updates, I always try to find positive sides from every update. New player model update was pure trash though.
