Valve has pushed a new CSGO update this morning which brings RMR Stickers (Regional Major Ranking) for 2020 circuit. This stickers are for the teams who have had qualified to ESL One Rio Major on the based of points they have accumulated in the qualifying tournaments.

Furthermore, the leaderboard RMR standings for 2021 will now be reset and the teams which held Legend status in the previous renditions of the Major will head over to the new year rankings circuit with 600 points.

Valve has also put light to the spectators exploitation with this update, where some of the coaches involved, were banned for life.

The organizational structure of a team is also affected by this new regulation by Valve where the managers will no longer be allowed to be present with the active roster during the game. A rule, which is been highly criticized by the CSGO community on social networks.

The rules not only bars managers from being present, but the support staff of the team will also be disallowed to communicate with the active players for any reason whatsoever.

Another segment of the update covers economical changes to the game. A minor, yet significant change has been brought to the Wingman & Competitive ranked games where $1000 will be awarded to all the team members with a player deficit, for three consecutive rounds.

Further, timeouts will be automatically applied for if a player disconnects from either of the teams. The game will resume instantly as the player joins in, even if the timeout duration remains.

There has also been changes to Elysion map, which can be found below in the patch notes for the latest update.
