CS:GO update brings more changes to Vertigo

The latest update to the game saw big changes to the A bombsite of Vertigo and addressed several miscellaneous bug fixes across the platform.

Described by Valve as a "Post-Major gameplay update", the patch features extensive changes made to the A bombsite, this time focusing on how players move in and out of the site, most notably removing the forklift located at the bottom of A ramp, closing off the gap seen in the wooden fence near the crane on A site, and creating a new exit and entryway into scaffolding.

Valve added a new way to enter the A site

Other adjustments to the map include a widened entrance from CT spawn into the B site, a sealed a gap located in the sandbags of lower A ramp, and a few cosmetic changes to the lighting and bombsite boxes.

The rest of the patch notes focuses on several bug fixes, while Valve also noted that, as an “onboarding experiment”, they would be restricting some users' access to both the Casual and Deathmatch game modes until their accounts have reached Private Rank 2.

You can find the full patch notes for October 9 below:


–As an onboarding experiment, some new users will be restricted to Casual and/or Deathmatch until they reach Private Rank 2.
–Fixed the XP progress bar not filling to the end when ranking up.
–Improved shutdown sequence of official servers when rolling over to the latest version.

He means to say its unlikely they will remove vertigo from the pool as theyre stilll working on improving it.

Why would they remove vertigo.. hopefully they will remove mirage and add something new, not cache with one new boost and some green shit all over

Why rework mirage? Good map and when they rework it they just gonna add some useless details and make graphic better and its ruining counter strike

How can you ruin the game if all of the remade maps are better? - Train looks and plays A LOT better than the original. - Nuke is best looking map in the game, and improved the old version by a huge margin, specially the T-side. - Inferno went from a ridiculous CT-sided map to one of the most balanced and fun to play/watch. - Dust 2 plays almost the same way, but revamped the visuals for better. Cache is the only one that is disapointing, since they don't even changed the textures. They could have gone the same way as Dust 2, keep the way the map is played (as the only T-sided map), but remake the visuals and add new spots for utility and executions.

New cache is ugly rn. Hopefully it will get some cosmetic touch ups before re entry

Thats right! 👍 Remove vertigo, include the New Cache!
2019-10-10 16:48
they should just remove vertigo for cache tbh
2019-10-10 09:37
Won't happen. Valve devs probably still salty Canals was trashed on so now they're pushing straight to competetive.

No, Valve trying really hard to save vertigo so that they -Mirage + Cbble Cache will be there after they fix the new changes and get opinion from the community. In future, -Overpass +Cache possible

Overpass is the map that it shouldn't be touched!

OFC not. mirage will go for cache because it needs a remake. It looks bad compared to the other maps and it is overplayed and outwashed

Vertigo is becoming more competetive with every update, so i think cache should replace Mirage, just so Mirage can get a facelift
2019-10-10 09:40
+1 -mir and +cache when competitive enough

What if it doesnt replace anything but join the map pool instead, would be better imo

Good map we as a community of CS love that changes
2019-10-10 11:14
What have they done to vertigo? How are you supposed to play ct side of A site? You cant even hold the new pathway from anywhere on site? You are just supposed to let them go up to site without even seing them? or you HAVE to take full ramp control, but since they removed the shortest way to getting to the ramp the T side already got the map control before cts do? If you are holding the new path to A site you are visible from the ramp area aswell? What were they thinking? And now you cant do a A split or a B split since they removed the door in mid and they removed the shortest way to A from mid.
2019-10-10 11:17
Russia syevad 
Wtf men You have 0 understanding of cs
2019-10-10 11:28
You have clearly not gone into the map and watched the timings of everything. The whole ramp control is in favor of the T side now.
2019-10-10 12:21
+1 these changes are awful. Post plants at A were hard enough for CTs already, now they're even worse. Also, mid was made even less appealing for T's. No clue why Valve thought these changes would be good for the map.
2019-10-10 20:23
7 years old and the community does not want a new map haha <3
2019-10-10 11:19

" would be restricting some users' access to both the Casual and Deathmatch game modes until their accounts have reached Private Rank 2. " Formulated like that it sounds as if they can play all other gamemodes but not casual/DM :o
2019-10-10 13:50
LOL everyone here is shitting on vertigo and wanting cobble back lmao... do you even play the game ? both those maps are equally bad
2019-10-10 13:56
cobble at current state is even hard to call a map. before removal it was super fun gimmicky map, prob my favorite, just pro matches were boring to spectate considering how little approach versatiliy was there

After vertigo, they can actually put office into the map pool and I wouldn't be surprised anymore.
