CSGO’s latest update tried to fix some of the fundamental issues that were plaguing the game for a long time now.

As soon as the new update went live, players started to see a constant barrage of freezes and server crashes. Although it is still pretty unclear why it is occurring so frequently after this update went live.

This update was supposed to fix the problem with player visibility at far distances. The devs finally decided to boost player contrast so that they will be more visible from further distances where previously they would usually blend in with their backgrounds.

While this update did help players to detect opponents at further distances, it somehow introduced new random freeze and game crashes. Some players were complaining about how these crashes have made them lose some important rounds in the game.

As of now, Valve has not acknowledged these issues. Apparently players are having a lot of problems with their client launchers. Some players are reporting that they had to restart the game three times in order for it to work. And these random crashes are not exclusive to ranked matchmaking.

A lot of players are also reporting that they are facing an unusual amount of crashes in normal public matchmaking. Players are assuming it is some kind of new bug that Valve introduced to us with their latest patch. Valve should take a look at this as soon as possible.
