CS:GO is the first game in the Counter-Strike series where a competitive mode was added to play against professional and worthy competitors like in professional tournaments, where there is a team change, friendly fire, and unchanged list of players per match and titles. CS:GO first came to the user's eyes on August 21, 2012, and in that time, the game changed significantly. Nevertheless, in this theme, Cyber-sport.io will tell you about the five cutouts of Valve company features that almost do not affect the core gameplay of Counter-Strike.
While actively developing a competitive mode in the CSGO. Developers, updated on October 1, 2012, added a feature that, at the end of the game, automatically held a vote with the offer to take revenge. A rematch allowed you to play a replay with your current squad and required ten votes to pass.
However, the vote was automatically canceled if at least one player left the game or was against it. Unfortunately, on November 21, 2014, this feature was secretly cut from the game. That was most likely because most players refused to hold a rematch. Of course, except for those guys who abused the rank system because there was no need to research the match for all of them caught in the same game.
Previously, it was possible to communicate with opponents in competition mode in voice chat. Of course, only on three occasions: the first was in the warm-up, the second was during the change of sides, and the third was at the end of the game. Surprisingly, in the update of December 2, 2015, the game developers made it so that terrorists can no longer communicate with special forces now in competition mode. This feature was removed because players were becoming more toxic and, in turn, behaving less athletically.
At one time, on the pistol round, there was an opportunity to purchase some farmgun. Yes, and yet, in competition mode in general to buy, for example, mp9 or mac-10 was at the beginning of the round to save all your money without making any purchase from any gun, as quickly as possible to make one kill after which in the procurement menu is an opportunity to buy the cheapest farmgun.
Though in the update of June 15, 2016, any money earned by the player during the round became unavailable for use. At any rate, a pistol round should be a pistol round. So, it's not surprising that the developers did remove such a feature.
Signing the exchange contract
The exchange contract appeared in the arms deal update of August 14, 2013, and as we know then, CS:GO had an old interface in which the exchange contract looked a little different. Previously, a player's signature was required before the final sending of 10 skins. Someone left an actual signature, just drew on it, and even painted over the place where the received skin is displayed to save the intrigue.
However, in the update of July 7, 2018, a new interface also changed the appearance of the exchange contract. Now instead of a signature, you need to put a checkmark. The reason for cutting out the visual component of the exchange contract is probably known only to the developers.
Undoubtedly, many of you remember how it used to be possible to exchange and sell keys on the trading platform Steam. But on October 28, 2019, the valve company completely removed such a possibility. Now the keys bought in the CS:GO store can only be used to open cases. However, this change does not apply to existing keys, they can still be sold and exchanged. The developers said that most Steam cheaters launder the looted items using these keys.
So, it was decided that the bought keys would only be used for what they were bought for, which was to open cases. Even though some cool features were removed or significantly changed in the game, CS:GO adds a lot of useful and, at the same time, necessary functions. And that's it for me, everyone, goodbye and thank you for your attention.
