Dust2 returns to Active Duty map pool in latest update

Professeur
April 21st, 2018 09:32

The legendary map makes it return to the Active Duty map pool in place of Cobblestone, accompanied by some other minor changes in the update.

The map pool change goes live on 4/20/2018, with the title "Smoke Mid Every Day" Valve reintroduced Dust2 to the map pool and announced that it would be used for the upcoming FACEIT Major in London.

Dust2 will be played at the FACEIT Major

Cobblestone was moved into the "Defusal Group Delta" casual map group, and will still be playable in different game modes. As of now, it remains to be seen how different tournament organizers will react to this news and when Dust2 will be added to their tournament map pools.

Alongside with the biggest change, Valve have added Nuke to the Wingman mode and fixed a bug that was impacting server performance.

You can find the full patch notes below:

[MAPS]

  • Added Dust II to the Active Duty map pool.
  • Removed Cobblestone from the Active Duty map pool.
  • Added support for Nuke in Wingman.
  • Moved Austria and Shipped into Defusal Group Sigma casual map group.
  • Moved Cobblestone into Defusal Group Delta casual map group.

[MISC]

  • Fixed an exploit that impacted game server performance.

Why did they have to remove Cobble? It's one of the best maps ever. Just euthanize Nuke or something, wtf?

I missed that. When did this happen? I guess I can't argue with them. Surprising to me really. Though even if it's boring, I'd think you want to compete on maps that are fair and make sense. Thus not on Nuke.

Wow, that is damning. Like I said, I can't argue with the pros so godspeed I suppose. I am actually surprised they hate Cobble so much more than Nuke. What if pros are playing a game to make dragonlores become even more rare by removing Cobble drops for majors altogether :thinking:

why not replacing cobble collection with dust2 collection ? that would be way better
2018-04-21 10:54
Cause cobble collecion has the knight times theme and d2 collection has the dusty desert theme

the only thing that could happen to the D2 collection is that they will add 2 or 3 new skins. But that didn't happen when Inferno got back in the Mappool either so I doubt anything will happen.

even though i love cbble, I have to agree with them. This map is simple, too simple. Same strats since years, same control map and same retake play style (when G2 used only to save, that was the only difference).

Exactly what I was thinking, same strats nothing creative to do just a boring map in general. I may be biased because I personally hate Cobble but I think this is a good change and can’t wait to see how teams perform on the new d2.
2018-04-21 13:14

It’s Also boring to watch, FYI. Only negative impact this will have is total viewers at majors since the Dragon Lore will be unavaliable. And Well... No, that might not even happen, because viewership was at the top on Inferno between C9 and FaZe, and there is no DL there. So yeh. But yeah It’s boring af to play too.

Well from a total of 47 guaranteed maps in the current major format (and 54 maximum), that is not much now is it. And the peak was on Inferno as I said, probably most due to the teams playing but yeah.

Sure thing. My only question is: Why Cobble over Nuke? Sure, Nuke has had several reworks, but teams STILL perma ban it and (severe) underdogs pick it in hopes of winning at least a single map. Everyone seems to hate it.

It's more down to a lot of teams don't know how to play it, rather than not liking it. There are a few teams who will play it, VP, Mouz, G2, EnVy and Heroic. It's a hard map to play well, so teams will just avoid it.

I agree that cobble needs some changes but really I think D2 will only be interesting for 2 or 3 tournaments and after that it will get even more boring. Should have replaced it with some other map... Season, Tuscan... lots of options out there...

Problem is every one knows dust 2. Cobble was less practiced by most teams. SS has to get really good at two extra maps now if they want a chance against top teams - which won't happen because there is not a real awper. Staying tier 2 forever.

It’s so much more fun to play & watch cbble, you have strats, more angles, it’s balanced unlike shit II (saying this as a player who has played that map in tourneys with teams), 1 TIGHT entrance onto the B site (can be smoked off, but the CT’s have still many opportunities to see you), mid is just pure bullshit, 1 CT at mid can literally stop a mid rush, A site is just even more utter bullshit, long is just cancer, just have a CT awper on site & let him watch long and it’s a done deal, short or cat seems like the most balanced part of the map, altho CT’s can hold it from the hs angle on-site, so getting forward from short is really tough... Also the skybox is terrible, literally 0 opportunities for smokes, flashes & nades in general

#166 B site is absolutely CT sided, the entrance from tuns is so bad, even if you use smokes CTs can use tons of off-angles A site is a tiny bit more balanced, especially short/cat, long can be held by a CT awper from site & it’s a done deal, also even if you get short/cat control as a T, you still need to use tons of smokes to get to the A site
2018-04-21 15:53
absolutely CT sided? if you gain control of the entrances you can trap the CT's in the corner, an A site awper can hold you long or cat, but not both at the same time, agree with the smokes part, but that's not a bad point, I guess that's the fun in the map, the varying ways of smoke usage
2018-04-21 16:09
#356
NAF | 
Slovakia t4gg3d 
There’s only 1 entrance onto the B site, not counting from CT mid as it can be held by another CT (and getting through there like that is hell) An A site awper can hold long, but another CT can hold short/cat, or for example 1 ct is gonna camp car & hold long without peeking and the awper is going to watch short/cat, it’s that simple It’s a bad point that there is no way of throwing unique nades & smokes bcs of the skybox, yeah, the map may be fun in mm with friends, but not in pro, competitive play - the pros should be able to make strats & not just rely on RNG, luck & raw aim (this could mean that Na’Vi couldn’t lose on dust II as s1mple would dominate) Also the smokes - the only few smokes that are a bit helpful are the : xbox smoke, B entrance smoke (sorta useful), cat smoke.. and that’s all of the useful smokes Also the fact that you need 2 smokes to smoke off CT spawn entirely from A long is just ridicilous...
2018-04-21 16:16
if you think going to B through mid CT is hell then you're not playing very well, the only downsides I get are that in order to make an effective execution you need to let go some map control to the CT's coming from the other bombsite (althought this could work for fakes and fast executions) and that lurking (specially on B) is not an easy task

Well I’m not playing dust II at all, but I was (the new version). And why am I saying it’s hell is the fact that whenever I tried to push with/without smokes, flashes etc. me & my team would get destroyed instantly from the mid guy and even if not from that guy - from A site/car or window/b door

I agree with you, but I don't think you should prevent D2 from being played whatsoever. D2 has that kind of gameplay which relies on different things than every other map; And it's still one of the most balanced (And who cares about side balance, you play on both sides anyways, that's part of the game). You see, D2 is very basic and surely seems unadapted, but the team that wins is still the better one.

I agree, you shouldn’t prevent D2 from being played whatsoever, but it definetely shouldn’t be in the competitive map pool. As I stated the factors above, this map would be unplayable for pros. It’s good for mm, but not for important matches. About the balance - ofc you play on both sides, but if you’ve got s1mple for example on your team & the other team has fer for example, ofc s1mple’s (yours) team is gonna win as he has better aim. Dust II = aim clash = CS is not only about aim, it’s a TEAM game, that’s the issue.

I think you are the 1 retarded here, did you actually read what I wrote? If you aren’t smart enough to see the problem than let’s sum it up : Dust II - barely any nades avaliable bcs of the skybox - no strats avaliable - not balanced - 1 normal entrace onto the A site & 0 onto the B site Cobblestone - open skybox, many cool nades - strats available - 2 entrances onto both sites + all of them are balanced - the map is balanced aswell Also I’m not hunting for dlores and I never was, I watch the matches to learn + it’s fun to do Cobblestone is way way way better than shit II in the terms of playability

Cobblestone is rush B simulator, if you don't have 4 CTs stacked on B site you are probably going to loose. Drop is super OP for Ts, Main is more balanced but still is the main rush route, lack of cover on B site, everything is easily nadable... On the rare occasion T's go A where is the cover for CT's? Truck and behind site. Cbble is so T sided, how is DD2 unbalanced? It is pretty much 50/50 or ever so slightly in favor of T's not ridiculously in favor of Ts. Also who cares about pretty nades?

No lol, Ive never seen any1 play cbble as a rush B simulator, if you know the map properly you can hold off any sort of a B rush, drop is definetely not T sided, CTs can just hold off window & the main entrance to drop, long is just easy to hold from site, statue, chicken coop, pizza, ebox etc. 50% of the time Ts go A, and there is so much cover for the CTs : apc, site, wood, hut, under balcony, balcony angles with the awp, door, long corners etc. How is DD2 unbalanced? #166 Not pretty nades, generally nades, you cant throw any or barely any nades on dd2

Basically all the maps should be tweaked or generally changed more often or we will see stagnant plays with the same meta. I liked 1.6 better anyway, but if you want to make that game anyhow entertaining in the future, then just deal with it, that you are gonna have to make CHANGES. Drastic or not, but changes. E.g. diversify the weapons, make them different (like r8). You gotta catch the spirit of cs - 5v5 format, cts and tts. All beyond can be changed for the better. Haters are welcome :)

nuke is fine - to watch and to play if you are willing to learn something different than the standard window-layout maps. It's indeed the only map that offers some kind of variety.

-de_overpass +de_tuscan I do not understand it's been like 6 years the game was released and still we play without tuscan. Shame! Pro players,teams & organizations should voice up together to make a change.Apparently Valve doesn't give a f*** about regular/casual players.

it's good that cobble is out of the map pool... and it can be good that there is another aim map without to many tactics. now there must be a balance between tactical maps and aim maps and there must be introduced new maps please.
2018-04-21 14:31
What do you mean? Cbble is the best map, dust2 is yet another trashmap dedicated to awp-players. Digusting change, if anything they should have removed Nuke/Mirage(Horrible map that only cater to awpers)

Finally get to see the map in action. Although since most teams don't like practicing newer maps, this will be banned a lot. I'm hoping I'm wrong.
