Valve removed bots from competitive Counter-Strike Global Offensive

Any Counter-Strike player is familiar with the feeling when a teammate loses contact with the server. Since the game is aimed mainly at serious-minded gamers, CS: GO matches are played with a fixed set of players, and the punishment for leaving is getting longer with each release … although this does not stop many. But when that happens, the player’s place is taken by a bot with an AI so bad that even the greenest newbie can defeat it.

The CS: GO community has been asking Valve for years to make an upgrade for bots, and this time the developers have decided to meet halfway. They completely cut out bots from modes 5 by 5 and 2 by 2. What is called, instead of treatment, they made amputations. 

CS: GO players  have been mixed about the changes. On the one hand, the removal of bots is aimed at solving the problem with teams that kick a teammate out of a match after the first round if he is not playing well enough. Valve probably borrowed this idea from Valorant, where the player is not replaced by a bot, but the team receives a cash bonus. There is no bonus in  CS: GO , so the solution looks strange.

The traditional system solved the dumb AI problem by transferring control to the first player killed. When the match begins, the players give the command to the bot to guard the wall, and they themselves go into battle. The first dead man crawls into the skin of the bot, so that in general the game continues on equal terms, only one of the players has two lives instead of one. This is much better than playing four against five.

In addition, Valve introduced changes to the weapon ping system and fixed several bugs. There are also a number of changes on one of the maps. Read more on the official website .
