SK Gaming's FalleN Has Some Advice for the CS:GO Developers After the ESL Pro League Group Stage

SK Gaming's in-game leader, Gabriel 'FalleN' Toledo, has taken to Twitter to let the CS:GO developers know what he wants to see changed following the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals group stage. SK Gaming was the class of the field in Group B as the EPL Finals got underway in Odense, Denmark.

The Brazilians dropped only one match in the group stage, to OpTic Gaming, on route to first position and a direct ticket to the semifinals of the $750,000 tournament. The second and third placed teams from each group will have to play through quarterfinal matches, so the strong performance in the groups was important. But FalleN, one of the Counter-Strike's greatest pioneers, had other things on his mind after the end of pool play.

Taking to Twitter, the Brazilian legend stated that Nuke had not been picked a single time in the group stage despite 30 matches being played. Using this to back his argument, FalleN tweeted at the CS:GO developers saying "you know what to do".  

  The veteran's point is clear - remove Nuke from the active duty map pool and bring back Dust 2 or another new map. There are a number of professional players that want to see Nuke removed, despite the fact that it was only added to the active duty map pool in April of 2016. Others have suggested that Cobblestone, or perhaps even Mirage, could do with a rework but there is no denying the fact that Nuke is one of the least popular maps among professional players. FalleN's suggestion could be somewhat self-serving, though, as Nuke has been SK Gamings permanent ban for a long period of time. Adding Dust 2 back into the mix would likely give SK a wider map pool than they currently have, making them an even more dangerous team than they already are. Dust 2 has not been in the active duty map pool since the reworked Inferno replaced it back in February of 2017.
