New update fixes Terrorist income

Valve has released a new update for CS:GO which was aimed at fixing a major issue with the game's money system.'s own writer Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen had flagged up the problem in an article published last week, in which he had stated his belief that the Molotovs should be removed from the game.

An update released on Friday made the Molotovs less powerful, and Valve has now addressed the issue of the income earned by Terrorists who choose to save their weapons.

With this new update, Terrorists who survive a round no longer receive money - like it was in 1.6 -, instead of receiving full money.

Below you can find all the issues that were fixed with the last update:

  • Eliminated the vignette effect from the scoreboard.Scoreboard has been narrowed
  • Smoke grenade visibility on the edges of smokes has been adjusted to obscure vision less.
  • Improved some cases of particle sorting between smoke and molotovs and other particle systems.
  • Adjusted the loser bonus for Terrorists when time has run out.
  • Surviving Terrorists get no income, but dead teammates receive a normal payout.
  • Removed match start and round end info panel animation sfx.

nice i guess
2012-11-17 13:37
The fact that they made it so that the entire team didnt get any money if one guy saved proves that they have no fucking idea about what they're doing at all.

yeah.. played 7 GO-matches yesterday, and three times it happened that we as CT just decided to run away in different directions, and at one point we let the T kill a few us just so that he'd survive the round :P
2012-11-17 14:37
Yea, they released update extremely bugged. It's good they fixed it same day...
2012-11-17 19:43
exactly! No one can convince me that Valve know what they're doing!
2012-11-17 14:57
+1 That's too bad you know still wondering how many valve 3d artists/programmers/etc.. are working on this opus.
2012-11-17 15:03
yeah man, sad shit. What makes it worse is that even some Valve/CSGO fanboys keep defending these ignorant devs.

No more "vroom vroom" sound at the end of the round? Yay!
2012-11-17 13:47
Updates moving the game in the right direction :D Still not quite sure why they didn't take this advice from day 1.

2012-11-17 15:26
I'm almost sure they sat down with the pros at ESWC and said "Yeah...we're not sure when the round ends, so could you like put a...i dunno "Swoosh" sound so we don't get so confused?"

If you really were contributing with "stuff" then you wouldn't use that in an argument. It was an ego stroke for yourself, and a way for you to beat someone in an argument. Just dont.

Valve: "I have no idea what I'm doing" I'm sad that they only fixed this like 4 months into retail? this was asked many times during the beta and they ignored most of the feedback in that stage. They are only updating the game because of PR, not cuz they want to make CS good again, sad.

actually the idea is pretty clear here: they're coming back to 1.6 system. They should have listened the community from the beginning instead of thinking we were just bitching them because GO was new. I hope they'll listen to the community too about the movements
2012-11-17 14:47

Even if Valve did 1.6 stuff in CS:GO people would still moan, if Valve simply rebranded 1.6 and called it 1.7 people would buy it instantly and say its amazing. What you have to realise is that generally the community is quite fickle, it's why Valve moved away from CS in the first place, they got far more appreciation from TF2, DotA, Portal, L4D Communities than the CS community will ever give.

tbh I think you're partly wrong here. The community is indeed whiny and it always pissed me off, but if valve had come up with a game with a gameplay closer to 1.6 (only when it comes to movements & aiming, would have been enough for me I would have even accepted new maps and all the rest if it wasn't for that), I think more people would have followed. A pretty large number of us here have already joined even though most said they didn't like the game, so not everybody here is narrow-minded enough to simply reject is cuz it's new
2012-11-18 13:45
how about adding some maps to the find a match feature? it would be nice if mirage was there..

Their actual team is quite small in comparison to other companies like EA and DICE etc

Well I can't really blame them. That's easily going to be one of their most profitable games.. They stole one of blizzards babies.

in matchmaking they need for sure new maps if you play inferno isn't the comeptitive mode i hope the dev. team put de_nuke_ve and mirage and change for example inferno to inferno_se and the other maps for the same mode!!
2012-11-17 15:31
so go have 1 problem and valve try to fix it and make another 5 problems ... nice

the problem is that developers (or whoever is making stupid decisions) dont believe that gamers know more about how to improve gameplay than them. they may be better than gamers in 90% of things in life but you cant beat gamers when it comes to games. hope they will realize this before year 2026
2012-11-17 15:38
Really nice and I like how fast they fixed their mistake from the previous update ;) Still it was hilarious to see how players were telling each other not to kill the last T as his team won't get money then :D:D

2012-11-17 17:19
these updates were necessary but whats more important is the core gameplay, i doubt they will make any significant changes. but may be valve realise later that the game is failing badly, then may be they do some relevent updates to see how it plays out.

I'm really starting to think that they made 1.6 so good by accident :D Jesus how come they could have so much luck ?
2012-11-17 20:19
tr all save :D revive D.Shield too
2012-11-17 22:44
Ok. So everybody is crying how 1.6 should be forgotten, and CS:GO should be played instead, cuz ... you see ... it's a new game, better than the old one, blablabla. In the same time all the suggestions by the community are to make CS:GO a more CS 1.6 like game. dafaq is my reaction :)

Good job. I'm just hoping Lurppis doesn't show up this time. It was sad to read the last news item comments. He undoubtedly has some good ideas and enthusiasm but he lacks the professionalism that is needed when you are representing something (in this case, e-sports). I would never hire anyone with that kind of personality as, for example, a spokesman for my company.

For everyone who havent noticed, becouse theres nothing mentioned in that update now u can use smoke to extinguish fire made by molotow/incindiary grenades. Well molotow's and incindiary grenades no longer work in smoke. So the game should be much faster now when u can stop fire :)
2012-11-18 07:03
bunch of sourcer come here ( and bashing 1.6 or defending their game Seems legit
2012-11-18 07:28
So, now also when Valve makes a good update you guys have to hate. Why can't you just enjoy good news?
2012-11-18 12:37
Good update from Valve. It was a good move listening to pro players.
