It’s all going on in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive today. Valve has just launched a $1 million ‘Dreams and Nightmares’ art contest that’s looking for ten original, fan-designed weapon skin designs to bring to the game, and we’ve also got a new update, too. This one makes a change to how griefing reports are handled and folds in some tweaks to two of the FPS game’s maps.
“Players that receive unusually high amounts of griefing reports will get a warning, followed by escalating competitive cooldowns,” Valve explains in the latest CS:GO patch notes. It’s not clear exactly how this will play out from the notes themselves, as they don’t go into any more detail than this. However, it looks like fans on Reddit have spotted what the warning players who’ve received high numbers of griefing reports get will say: “You have been receiving significantly more griefing abuse reports than most players. If this continues you will receive a matchmaking cooldown penalty.”
Beyond this change, Pitstop and Mocha have received a fresh batch of adjustments. For the former, there are improvements to the map’s skybox and fog, and a new dev texture and some fixes to various bits and pieces.
