The latest CS:GO update introduces players to Regional Major Ranking (RMR) Stickers for 2020 circuit. These stickers will be provided to teams who have made it to the ESL One Rio Major qualifiers on the basis of their accumulated points across qualifying tournaments.

Additionally, Valve will reset the leaderboard RMR standings for CS:GO 2021 and the teams which held Legend credentials in the previous versions of the Major will proceed to the New Year rankings circuit with 600 points.

Economic changes in CS:GO update

Spearheading the economic alterations in the latest version would be the Wingman & Competitive ranked games, which will now come with a $1000 award for all team members with one player deficit, for three successive rounds.

If a player disconnects from either team, a timeout will be immediately applied. As soon as the player rejoins, the game shall resume despite the timeout phase still remaining. The Elyson map has also undergone changes and gamers can discover these in the patch notes for the latest version.
