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

Valve has released a new CS:GO update on 28th January 2021, adding 2020 RMR Sticker Capsules, making changes to gameplay as well as the Elysion map.
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.
