Yo les noobs, Hope they discuss how much of a scandal it is that the Major doesn't take place in Fra,ce or Denmark, and that PGL hosts it.

I think France won't be taken right now into consideration neither Denmark due pandemic lockdown

Sweden is the 'home' of counterstrike, they have produced more 'great' players across all versions of CS than any other country.

They don't care about CSGO period. They're just making updates while copying everything Valorant does. Well Valorant did copy CS and Dota so I guess that's fair. But that's not what we want from them at all. Hell there is a bug in the video settings of CSGO since october 2020, FXAA can't be enabled and doesn't work but it's still not fixed lol. Imagine leaving a setting in your own game and it's impossible to be enabled. That shows how much concern they're putting into the game.

Never noticed that lmao But Valve is hell bent on adding agents (which blend in with some maps) and skins, which poor people like me can't buy
