ESL One New York to run on old patch

September 15th, 2017 11:50

ESL One New York will not be played in the latest patch, tournament director Jonas "bsl" Alsaker Vikan has announced.

In a Reddit post, Jonas "bsl" Alsaker Vikan states that, after discussing the matter internally and reaching out to the teams in attendance, ESL decided to use a previous patch for the tournament as players have had little time to adapt to the newest patch. 

Last night's update brought significant gameplay changes, with the unarmored aimpunch having been "significantly reduced", and the Glock and the P250 having been altered to emphasize "skillful use". 

ESL One New York will not use the latest CS:GO patch

ESL One New York, taking place at the Barclays Center, will kick off at 17:00 with SK taking on Envy, and FaZe locking horns with Virtus.pro. The event will run until Sunday, with $250,000 on the line.

It's great, P250 1 tap 4 1 last premier <3
2017-09-15 12:09
What ?
2017-09-15 12:27
'P250 one taps for one last premier tournament.' Referencing the fact that p250 can't one tap full health helmeted players in the newest patch.

valve tried to punish esl for unbanning cheaters and matchfixers haha

You think Valve are bad on CSGO? Bruh have you played TF2 recently? it's so fucking dead with the only updates being shitty cosmetic items and them bringing matchmaking fucking 9 YEARS after the game launched even though it was one of the most common thinks people asked for FOR 9 FUCKING YEARS. Also this is what valve said; 'Levels are a cosmetic feature that show how much you've played. They can never be lost, and they do not affect matchmaking.' Nigga they introduce matchmaking after 9 years and say that it's not even matchmaking, not really.

+11111 tf2 has been dead ever since the meet your match update. their matchmaking system is just cancer, and they somehow managed to ruin pubbing as well. if you want to play tf2 comp, you have to play in a league

We still have those 24/7 2fort or upward servers though lmao

2017-09-15 15:27

Probably because they were preparing the event for the older patch anyways.

I don't know why this would matter anyway. It would still be the same for everyone so unless people stopped playing after the patch there is no significant advantage to any team if they were to play on the last patch.

Yeah but with every patch there's a chance the game is broken. No need to risk that until it's properly tested.

One week on beta servers is not something I would be comfortable with as an event organiser
2017-09-15 13:44
Valve? Testing stuff? Do you remember the aug buff update?
2017-09-15 13:46
what volvo said is always true lmao
2017-09-15 13:48

Good decision!
2017-09-15 14:09
Quite bullshit, but if you think about that they still dont allow the r8 and the negev after almost half a year.....
2017-09-15 15:25
Should have played it on the new patch - it's not that much of a change where PRO players can't adapt. Would have made it a more interesting tournament imo
2017-09-15 15:43
Valve doesn't care about ESL
