WESG 2018 World Finals to be played out with new patch; old economy*
The WESG 2018 World Finals will be played out with new gameplay update.
The WESG 2018 World Finals, which are taking place in Chongqing, China, and are now in the quarter-finals with teams like fnatic, OpTic, G2, and MIBR still in contention, will adopt the new update that was recently shipped out by Valve, as the game's IP holder has not left an older version to revert to.
The update, which is one of the biggest updates to the game in recent history, sees the AUG go back to costing $3,300, while the M4A1-S, which used to have 20 bullets in a magazine, will now have 25.
The most game-changing update comes to the economy, however, as it is something that will completely transform the way matches are played out. Hard resets have been taken away from the game and will instead have a counter that will change the loss bonus amount. More on the topic can be read on our update post.
Update: The matches will be played with the new patch, but the new loss bonus changes have been disabled in a last minute decision.
