the charm of pro CS is that the pros create the meta, not the devs. that's the problem with Riot games (Val and League) and Overwatch specifically
CS2 is already change of meta. Everything feels a bit different.
It also feels like Valve purposely abandonded certain weapons and maps because they realized they didn't work, unlike a lot of other games (especially Overwatch) where Blizzard is still trying to make hero's like Sombra a meta character when she just isn't fun to play as or against. Another problem is characters like brigitte that require very low skill to get a lot of value out of are still in the game.
Same thing could be said about Riot.
Though i will say i think Vertigo and Ancient are both pretty objectively bad maps and should be changed more or removed entirely. I thought CS couldn't get good new maps, until they added Anubis which i think is a very solid map.
I thinks they should definitely do updates more often
Especially some changes on pistols, shotguns and smgs
I think Valve thinks the meta is in a good place, nearly every gun is viable and serves a purpose. It's really the players who define the meta in a sense.
valve should add mini-bosses in the middle of the map, the team who kills it first gets a 5k bonus for the next round, also add towers in every site that the T's have to destroy before executing a site
i dont see why you would need constant big updates and meta shifts
CS2 will be the biggest change of meta since nade drops. New smokes, no skybox, just think about all the possibilities. Think about taking site on Inferno without skybox mollys. It will be great for the game.
New smokes will already be such a huge change its not even funny.
i do not think at all that the "meta change" is happening, i just think that they're balancing things
yeah as if csgo is in a great state right now? Map pool is pretty shit lets be real, and it doesnt help the fact they fucked the economy so saving is 95% of the time the best strategy possible.
All the maps go to 30+ rounds and shit is boring to watch. Of course you get some anomalies like Ence v FaZe, but Paris Major was fucking terrible at times with how these games kept going to overtime.
I realy want to se a smg buff with more expensive price ofc. Amd aug and galil buff. Just to se more variation in the guns. Tiers to se ak,m4 and awp in every buy rounds.
Maby this buff can change the meta more than it is today. I dont think the smoke chamge will change the game.. its more like a cool feture to nade smoke in a eco round or something.
