CS:GO update 28th January: RMR Sticker Capsules, Elysion map and gameplay updates

CS:GO update 28th January: RMR Sticker Capsules, Elysion map and gameplay updates

In the early hours of the morning on 28th January 2021, released a new CS:GO update which adds 2020 RMR Sticker Capsules to the game, while making gameplay adjustments and updating the Elysion map.

At the same time, the developer also gave a 2021 RMR update, and put its foot down when it comes to CS:GO coaches in online matches.

CS:GO 2020 RMR Sticker Capsules

In 2020, the top CS:GO teams in the world competed in RMR events for invitations to a Major Championship. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a CS:GO Major never took place last year.

To celebrate and recognize these top CS:GO teams, Valve has released 2020 RMR Sticker Capsules, which players can now purchase.

These CS:GO Sticker Capsules represent the teams which would have received invites to the Fall Major. They are broken down by their invitation status, namely: Legend, Challenger, and Contender. 

Valve also announced that 50% of the proceeds from the CS:GO 2020 RMR Sticker Capsules will go to directly support the teams.

 

CS:GO update: Gameplay adjustments

In the latest CS:GO update, Valve made some important gameplay changes to Competitive and Wingman modes.

First off, if a team has fewer players than the opposing team for 3 or more consecutive rounds in the half, each of the team members will receive a $1000 "Shorthanded Loser Income" following a round loss. This bonus does not apply when a player is kicked.

Sticking with Competitive and Wingman game modes, Valve also added an automatic 2-minute Tech Timeout which will begin when a player disconnects. This timeout will end early if a player abandons or reconnects to a match.

Lastly, pinging will now display the name of the pinged location.
