ECS Season 8 Finals to be played on the latest update

ECS tournament officials have announced that their upcoming Season 8 Finals event will use the latest CS:GO patch, which features a price increase to the SG 553 and buffs to the Famas and Galil.

ECS Season 8 Finals will take place in Arlington, Texas, on November 28 - December 1, with eight teams in competition for the $500,000 prize pool. Despite moving the action over to the latest patch that includes a plethora of changes, the new, purchasable player models — named "agents" —, will not be usable at ECS due to "concerns about visibility".

The new Galil and Famas will be in action next week at ECS

FACEIT's director of Esports, Roald Van Buuren, noted that the decision to use the latest update was made after consulting with the CSPPA and teams, which makes it likely that the same update will be used for all following events, such as the ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals on December 3-8.

I mean to be quite honest $3000 isn't enough for the krieg. More like $3200 - $3500 would do it justice. You have to make the people risk their money for it. Its still only $300 more than the ak which is still gonna be purchased a lot. But at least we won't see it on force buys. Now they would probably have to drop it leaving them with no money for armor to a star player.
