Just the other day Counter-Strike received a huge update that fixed many bugs but more importantly, we received an updated Inferno! Inferno has been a veteran map throughout the years for this game. Although, this map has had some of its faults previously, this update is definitely a change for the better. In a matchmaking standpoint, this map was very CT sided because it was very difficult for terrorist to move around. The choke points on this map were very tight, allowing the counter-terrorists to easily defend from pushes. Inferno now feels more balanced and open, allowing for a more diverse experience.
The new map has opened up a lot of possibilities for a push on the T side. Banana has been widened substantially and a wall has been built just before corner. This allows for the terrorist to jump peak and spot anyone holding that angle. Previously CT always had the upper hand on this corner, they had the option to nade stack or a hold with an AWP. Now, there are more possibilities for a balanced push.
A huge thing to note is that the terrorist exit has now become 2 exits! No longer can two trolls keep your team stuck in the spawn area. Thanks Valve! There has definitely been more positive responses to this update as compared to negative so I think this was indeed a successful update.
Overall the visual upgrade for this map has been a huge improvement and I do hope they update many more of the maps in the competitive pool.
