Major June 10 CS:GO Update
Valve released the patch notes for today's update. This time it's obvious that they have finally listened to the community's requirements and revealed that they flipped Dust B's B-bomb doors and reverted to version 1.6. In addition, the developer has made some minor changes to Mirage, Inferno, Train, Overpass and Cache.
Except for a slight improvement in rendering and a few others. The update has made many changes to the main cards like Dust 2, Overpass, Mirage and Cache, most of which aim to improve the visibility of player models across parts of the cards.
A new option called "Boost Player Contrast" has been added to the game’s advanced video settings. This tweak allows for a variety of small visual tweaks to ensure that players can see enemies from any distance without affecting the visual design too much or offering too much of an advantage.
Enemies appear sharper at greater distances, the fog intensity on character models has been halved and some cards (like Dust 2) have also been slightly modified. If the model is against a background that is similar in color to it, a small halo is also used to make them pop out more.
To get a feel for how long this was a problem for the game, in the days of Counter-Strike: Source and Day of Defeat: Source there were modified character models that had bright, bright colors to increase visibility. They have been considered a scam by most people, so it's nice to see that Valve is finally officially addressing this issue
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is a brutal game in which you can play a whole round with one slip. Anything that gives people a chance to fight without compromising their competitive character is a good move. It will likely not turn a newbie into a professional sniper, but with luck, it could keep him in the game long enough so that it is no longer a problem.
