Valve Adds User Suggested Feature in CS:GO, Even Gives Credit in Patch Notes

By   /   3 years ago

If you have ever wanted to feel like your feedback in games mattered, you might want to play a game from goold old Valve. Their latest update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive CS:GO adds a lot of improvements, some of it credited to their player base.

In a reddit discussion just two days ago, a user suggested a way to oversee purchases during the round start. A Valve employee chimed in that it would be a great idea, which can be seen by its implementation in the latest gameplay update.

Notes for fixes mention:

Weapons, grenades, and remaining money are now displayed as icons above player heads during freezetime. (Thanks R-arcHoniC)

This should help organize teams as to who is currently packing what item and how much buying power they have left. Furthermore, the update improves on a several other critical gameplay elements.

When planting bombs, the initial sound is now audible for everyone, but only the player planting can hear key typing noises. This will allow for the Terrorist faction to perform fake bomb plants to distract their opponents.

Focusing on sound some more, someone picking up an item normally will trigger a notification that everyone hears, while moving silently only makes it audible for the player. Hereby, stealth and surprise elements should become a lot more important.

Just imagine going after an opponent that you think is outgunned, but then shows up with a sniper rifle later. That will require you to keep good track of the level surroundings.

Since team play is vital in CS:GO, these fixes should boost good coordination, especially on the competitive level. To really complete things nicely, the update also allows users to link their Twitch.tv account to Steam for easy live streaming.

They thought of everything.
