A new CS:GO update got released in the early hours of the morning on 18th August, bringing some small but meaningful changes to the game. This is definitely a minor update from Valve but there are some changes relating to the scoreboard and displayed wait time which some players might be happy with.
New CS:GO update details
There's not much to write home about in the new CS:GO update, with the exception of two improvements. First up, with the end-of-match scoreboard, you will now see which players were in a party together when the skill groups are shown.
The second improvement in the new CS:GO update is all about wait times. Basically, the average wait time for finding a match you see after the latest CS:GO update is now region-specific on official game servers.
This little improvement could be meaningful to those who live in countries with smaller CS:GO communities, as there, wait times often used to be misleading.
Release Notes for today are up. End of match scoreboard will now display which players were playing as a party when Skill Groups are revealed and more: https://t.co/hNulcqtJdd— CS:GO (@CSGO) August 18, 2020
New CS:GO update notes:
- End of match scoreboard will now display which players were playing as a party when skill groups are revealed.
- Average wait times for finding matches on official game servers are now region-specific.
- Rcon connection from client will now get established asynchronously.
- Rcon address cannot be changed while connected to a dedicated server.
- Added a setting “rcon_connected_clients_allow” to disallow clients from connecting to other dedicated servers via rcon.
- Several stability improvements.
As you can see, there isn't much to the new CS:GO update, especially for your average player.
The "rcon" notes are for server-side commands, so unless you are running a server, these shouldn't be of much interest to you.
