A new update has been shipped to the competitive shooter Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and it seems to contain a bunch of quality of life changes for the players to enjoy.
For starters, Valve has added an option to set presets for competitive matchmaking. Moving forward, players will be able to save and load their favorite map selections based on what they want to play. Furthermore, players will also be able to queue for Premier matchmaking alongside other competitive maps.
As a new measure to curb the number of cheaters in the title, a link to the CSGO Fair Play Guidelines has been added on official servers. This may potentially imply that the devs are planning to take more drastic measures to counter cheaters, but nothing has been confirmed yet.
Other than that, the new update also introduced some stability improvements and fixed a nasty wall bang bug that some players were experiencing on Inferno.
