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, 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.
