Just a day after releasing the new battle royale mode for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve has dropped an update that solves a few important issues that cropped up with the December 6 update. 

After much speculation, Valve dropped a bomb on the CS:GO community in the form of a huge December 6 update that not only introduced the new battle royale mode, Danger Zone, but also made the game free-to-play. 

Along with that update, though, a few issues popped up that needed immediate addressing, which led to the December 7 update to clean things up a bit.

While the patch isn’t very long, it nonetheless was important for Valve to get ahead of some of these issues as soon as they could. 

One of the most important issues addressed centers around bullet penetration, as it was found that it was behaving as it should. This update fixes and regression that was occurring, allowing gunplay to get back to normal. 

For non-Danger Zone players, the molotov received a small adjustment to fix an issue that was causing it to not detonate in mid-air in other game modes. 

In addition to these fixes, Valve included a number of other minor UI adjustments for Danger Zone and fix crashing on Intel GPUs. 

You can find the full patch notes for the December 7 update below:

Real Madrid and Brazil football star Casemiro has announced the launch of his own esports team, CaseEsports.

The defensive midfielder’s team will initially compete in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, debuting in the qualifier for DreamHack Masters Winter on November 3.

The decision to start a team, according to the org’s official website, was birthed from Casemiro’s “enthusiasm, desire to enjoy and passion for this game” – speaking specifically of Counter-Strike.

The organisation will provide a team of sports professionals to enhance the performance of their players. They plan to “lead the European esports scene” through “effort, perseverance and teamwork.”

CaseEsports will be hoping for land1n to make an instant impact.

The all-Brazilian roster that has been assembled includes former paiN Gaming and Tempo Storm players Denis “⁠dzt⁠” Fischer and Paulo “⁠land1n⁠” Felipe, former FURIA Academy duo Yan “⁠yepz⁠” Pedretti and Vinicius “⁠n1ssim⁠” Pereira, and former Imperial player Felipe “⁠delboNi⁠” Delboni.

CaseEsports has already secured the support of multiple sponsors, including peripherals brand HyperX, glasses retailer Hawkers, gaming chair brand Drift, and “fashion soccer” line BŮH.

“This team was created out of a hobby of mine that I really enjoy,” said Casemiro, according to HLTV. “I wanted to take it to a professional level, and just like in my career, I want them to be the best. I know that creating a new team and winning titles will take time and require a lot of work, but I hope that the players and the fans will really enjoy this project.”

Athletes starting their own esports teams is not a new trend by any means.

In the last few months alone, David Beckham launched Guild Esports, Manchester City star Sergio Aguero founded KRU Esports, and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster started Team Diverge.
