Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the new multiplayer-only first-person shooter from Valve and Hidden Path Entertainment, has just received a brand new update on Steam that solves a variety of smaller issues, from problems with the warmup mechanic, to bugs on the Vertigo map.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive came out back in August and delivered an impressive first-person shooter experience reminiscent of the franchise’s good old days, when it dominated the online multiplayer segment of the industry.
Now, a brand new update for the game has gone live on Valve’s Steam digital distribution service for the title’s PC and Mac versions.
The patch brings a variety of fixes for some of the game’s different issues. These include problems with the warmup mechanic, bugs that caused the game to stop accepting input from the mouse, as well as quite a few glitches encountered on the Vertigo map.
Check out the things included in the update below.
-Added a vote to continue playing competitive match with bots after a human player abandons the match, unanimous agreement of remaining human players is required to continue playing with bots.
-Reduced time required for confirming match when searching for competitive players and servers.
-Improved overall search times in competitive queue mode.
-Added a client message when the warmup period ends.
-Extended competitive match warmup period to 90 seconds.
-Message of the day will automatically dismiss itself when competitive match starts.
-Added an explanation to competitive cooldown timer for clients.
-Added a condition to apply competitive cooldown to players who have disconnected from the match.
-Implemented scaling cooldown periods for repeat incidences.
-Rearranged props below the boost-up ladder to prevent players jumping onto the ladder without boosting
-Clipped off various tiny ledges
-Made small props protruding from walls non-solid
-Fixed visible nodraw in ceiling hole
-Fixed a long standing bug where you could lose mouse input when you got to the team select screen.
-Fixed a bug where the color correction during freeze time did not account for the players also being invulnerable during the new warmup - this fixed the CC gap at the start.

-The chat now displays when the warmup has ended, just like when it is in progress.
The new update is live on Steam and will be automatically downloaded the next time you start up the Steam client.
