CS:GO Comes to China:
Through a partnership between Valve and Perfect World, a Chinese based game development company, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive finally reaches the Chinese public. To obtain a copy of Perfect World’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Chinese players will have to provide a form of ID that will be linked to their Perfect World account. Arguably, this deters cheating in the game as a ban will cause for the ID to be banned along with it. Perfect World players have instant Prime Matchmaking instead of having to get the Lieutenant Rank 21 base. Perfect World players also receive new stickers and graffiti from the Perfect World capsules that will be released in October globally. The CS:GO maps, gameplay, and UI are slightly different to comply with the Chinese regulations on online video games, but there are no drastic changes that will change the base gameplay of the game.
Spectrum 2 Case:
The Spectrum 2 Case is the newest addition to the variety of CS:GO cases and collections. The case features 17 community designed skins, the two most-sought after being the AK-47 | The Empress and the PP-Bizon | High Roller. The case also features knives in Chroma finishes, but none of these knives are new to the game. The case can be opened with the Spectrum key introduced with the first Spectrum case.
P250 and Glock Reworks:
The P250 and Glock have both had reworks to their damage, accuracy, and armor penetration. Due to the drastic 1/3 reduction aimpunch, the two pistols will now be more viable without armor in starting pistol rounds. This means players can now buy more utility in pistol rounds instead of having to worry about armor. All changes can be seen in the second source below.
