New update adds DHW stickers

MIRAA
November 21st, 2014 12:29

Valve has released a new update for CS:GO that adds stickers from the teams that will attend DreamHack Winter.

Following the disqualifications of Titan and Epsilon from DH Winter, only 14 team stickers are currently available as the last two participants at the Swedish major will be determined through a LAN qualifier that will be held on Saturday.

HLTV.org knows that, in order to take part in the qualifier, teams had to submit their sticker art, so it is believed that the final two stickers will be added to the game as soon as the tournament is over.

As usual, a portion of the proceeds from the sticker sales will go directly to the teams attending the event, which will kick off on November 27.

The new update also brings back the Pick'Em Challenge, which allows the fans to gain trophies by correctly betting on the winning teams as DreamHack Winter progresses.

Below you can find the patch notes in full:

[DREAMHACK 2014]

  • Added DreamHack 2014 Team Stickers and Legends Capsule
  • Enabled the DreamHack 2014 Pick'Em Challenge
  • Enabled DreamHack 2014 tab in the Watch Panel

[OPERATION VANGUARD]

  • Added Mission FAQ to the Operation Vanguard website: http://www.counter-strike.net/operationvanguard/
  • Mission cooldowns now display hours remaining in the mission panel and journal.
  • Added a display showing how many missions a user can complete in the mission panel and journal.
  • Added help text tooltip for the mission panel.
  • Added Steam rich presence and twitch.tv integration data for Operation Vanguard maps.
  • Fixed de_dust2 Galil mission
  • Fixed bonus deathmatch weapon score calculation for missions.

[MATCHMAKING]

  • Added three restrictions to Competitive Matchmaking:

  • If a player does not have a competitive Skill Group, they will not be able to queue in a party with a player having a very high Skill Group
  • Accounts are restricted to two Competitive wins per day until they receive their competitive Skill Group
  • Unless they are in a party of 5, players will not be able to queue for Competitive Matchmaking if their skill group range is very large.

[MISC]

  • Fixed a case where the deathmatch bonus weapon panel was showing an uninitialized weapon icon.
  • Made host_framerate convar accessible with sv_cheats enabled ( for movie makers )
  • Spectators and GOTV viewers can now spectate grenades thrown by players.  To do this, press and hold the Left Alt key when the player you are observing throws a grenade.  Your camera will follow the grenade until you release the Left Alt key or the grenade explodes/expires.
  • Fixed Alerts panel showing incorrect layout for certain bans and cooldowns.

[MAPS]

  • Bug fixes on Workout, Season, Facade, Bazaar and Marquis
nice :D

2014-11-21 12:33

2014-11-21 12:35
Kqly is dead to me now. I can't believe I called him kukli like we were brothers or something. Now I'm gonna go cry in the shower.

2014-11-21 15:05
Epsilon,Titan sticker pls?
2014-11-21 12:30
No, they were removed because of having less than 3 top 8 finalists from the same team in esl one due to KQLY and Sf hacking
2014-11-21 13:15
False they got disqualified because they are vacced
2014-11-21 15:08
Thats what he just said, but in a different way!
2014-11-21 18:20
no he said the teams dropped them but thats not true (at least for sf) and therefore they cant attend because they only have 2 players of the old lineup instead of 3. titan coudlve picked uziii to have 3 again only epsilon couldnt pick a player cuz they are in LDLC/Titan now.
2014-11-21 18:53
Its literally IN the news story
2014-11-21 15:08
hype
2014-11-21 12:30
And with new incoming bans the stickers will have to be deleted... :E
2014-11-21 12:30
Only if iBP loses azk skadoodle or swag teams were removed due to not having atleast 3 finalists from esl one cologne on the same team and same goes for qualifiers
2014-11-21 13:17
ibuypower and C9 looks nice

They are even worse than Cologne stickers huh I hope they will finally listen to community and will make similar stickers from Katowice 2014 for next major who will take place in Katowice probably, 2015 ;)
2014-11-21 12:32
scream...
2014-11-21 12:32
KQLY/Sf sticker or riot
2014-11-21 12:32
doesnt it seem odd that the vac bans roll out before this update...it seems that valve knew about the bans and used the timing as an media stunt?increase the viewership...
2014-11-21 12:33
and i bet esea says more are coming but no more will come now
2014-11-21 12:33
Actually more can come because if one gets banned the team does not get disqualified
2014-11-21 14:48
Yes they do any team that has a vac banned player is kicked out the tournament no matter what.
2014-11-21 17:05
When did they say that? Titan and epsilon got disqualified because they had only three people who were in the previous events top 8 and one of them in both teams got vac banned
2014-11-21 17:13
exactly mate the other guy doesnt get this
2014-11-21 17:36
hltv.org/news/12793-esl-to-exclude-vac-b.. Read the last line This is for all majors funded by valve.
2014-11-21 17:44
no they say that VAC banned players cant play and if they havn't got 3 players from last years top 8 finishing team they dont get a invite
2014-11-21 17:46
can you read? Moreover, the ESL stresses that, should they come across a team fielding a player who has been VAC-banned, said team will be disqualified from the tournament. Edit: Titan could have added Uzzi but they still got disqualified.
2014-11-21 17:49
hltv.org/news/12793-esl-to-exclude-vac-b.. Read the last line. This happens for all majors that are valve funded.
2014-11-21 17:43
of course they waited with the update because they had to remove the stickers from Titan+Epsilon.
2014-11-21 12:47

2014-11-21 12:36
Buy a lot fnatic and ldlc sticker. Watch LDLC and Fnatic get disqualified and stickers removed. Wait for fnatic and ldlc sticker to go up in their prize. Get rich. Thanky me later.
2014-11-21 12:36
I just followed your advice. I'm off to church now to pray and hope for the miracle of JW and LDLC getting VACbanned. God bless, and thank you.

I seriously don't like the fact that Valve is disrespecting mousesports recent performance and instead nominates these crap teams to qualify for Dreamhack. It really is a shame and Valve should feel bad. Just my 2 nickels.
2014-11-21 12:39
The thing is though, mouz are definitely better than the teams that have been nominated, everyone knows this, surely even valve. That means that the only logical reason they didn't invite mouz is because the couldn't. As mouz wanted to be invited, that means they weren't invited because valve could not do so and the only reason I can think of is that valve are aware that one of the mouz players is about to permanently go on vacation.
2014-11-21 13:10
>one of the mouz players is about to permanently go on vacation. Or two :D RIP Allu RIP OnlineJ
2014-11-21 13:25
You can't really think that Allu would cheat? That's just stupid and ignorant.
2014-11-21 15:58
you do realize, that mouz played the ESL Pro League Qualifier with smn, who is now on VACation?
2014-11-21 15:06
all stickers are purchaseable @ 0.79€ ingame while on market they are @ 0.76-1€ if you want Holo's you can purchase those capsules :)
2014-11-21 12:40

2014-11-21 12:47
sweet, they added that grenade feature and made so noobs cant play with gods
2014-11-21 12:47
"Spectators and GOTV viewers can now spectate grenades thrown by players. To do this, press and hold the Left Alt key when the player you are observing throws a grenade. Your camera will follow the grenade until you release the Left Alt key or the grenade explodes/expires." Probably Anders asked Valve to add this. He likes to follow smokes and molotovs and watch how they explode :-) Pretty cool minor feature for GOTV.
2014-11-21 12:51
Yes, I've had a lot of suggestions and I hope they add them all =)
2014-11-21 12:52
I like how you want to make the Games more enjoyable to watch for Viewers. Keep the good job :D
2014-11-21 12:54
Well done. :D Can't wait for next game now.

2014-11-21 13:07
"Accounts are restricted to two Competitive wins per day until they receive their competitive Skill Group" >> This + 20 wins to get a rank + Not queue unranked players with ranked ones and 70% of cheaters will not have patience to wait. At least valve is trying to stop cheaters and smurfs.
2014-11-21 13:09

the copenhagen wolves sticker was the only good looking cologne sticker in my opinion
2014-11-21 17:32
and it was uploaded by a twat so i now dont like it
2014-11-21 17:44
Colonge stickers were only good , because katwice were better :> , like if there wasn't any katwice stickers , Colonge would've been the best .

2014-11-22 01:05
some good MM updates but they have to come with a statement about people being banned . this will make the scene ugly and people will doubt tournament results because some guy had a good game and was rolling in kills . Valve you need to wake up and release a statement immediately .

2014-11-21 14:24
stickers without boundary please
2014-11-21 14:27
They should add this to a contract. "if if get a VAC ban in the game of CS:GO, within the next 10 years, I will pay back the value of stickers and winnings to the Dreamhack organisation. Should I be unable to repay all the money at once, I will then obtain a bank loan. I will allow a representative of the Dreamhack organization to escort me to the bank, in order to monitor my attempts to get a loan. Should I fail to get a sufficiently large loan, I will allow the Dreamhack organisation to take ownership if any personal items that I own, such as computer, TV, smartphone, car or other items that will be deemed profitable to auction off." There, I'd like to see anyone that dares to cheat then :D
2014-11-21 14:30
something like this seems appropriate considering the growth of monetization in professional cs:go
2014-11-21 15:11
So if people who play this a little more seriously want to play with a friend who plays this casually (and has a much lower rank), they can't...? This makes no sense whatsoever for the average gamer. What qualifies as a very large range in the skill group? This doesn't sound like a good change to the game tbh.
2014-11-21 14:34
It's to prevent cheaters boosting other players. I see no issues in there.
2014-11-21 16:05
Would like to know what is a "very large range" in their perspective. Does anyone know?

Made host_framerate convar accessible with sv_cheats enabled ( for movie makers ) it still worked with a plugin... just fix the damn demos plz
2014-11-21 15:25
"if their skill group range is very large." Im curious what means "very large" :F
2014-11-21 15:27
I think it's like 3-4 ranks ahead of current. For example if u are without rank or like silver 1, u could not play with Gold nova and higher ones. That will prevent cheaters for boosting, as I had to play with a team of 5 supremes against 1 supreme, 1 gold nova and 3 no rankers. Awesome.
2014-11-21 16:00
I know for what is that, Im just wondering what means "very large". IMO 3 ranks its no very large gap. its like supreme and 2ak/sheriff togather
2014-11-21 16:04
Im global elite myself, and I usually play with dmg/2ak friends etc. :<

Unless they are in a party of 5, players will not be able to queue for Competitive Matchmaking if their skill group range is very large. so now I can't play with friends :DDDD there goes matchmakings only use

+1 for "Spectators and GOTV viewers can now spectate grenades thrown by players. To do this, press and hold the Left Alt key when the player you are observing throws a grenade. Your camera will follow the grenade until you release the Left Alt key or the grenade explodes/expires." :)
