What really surprised a lot of die-hard fans was the fact that Dust 2 was not at the top when it comes to popularity. Surprising everyone Mirage took the crown for the most played map.

What makes Mirage so great?

Mirage was added with the release of Global Offensive. Since this is one of the classic maps of Counter-strike, different iteration of the map has made its way into different versions of the game. In 2012, with the release of CSGO, Valve also remade Mirage from the ground up.

Mirage has this distinct balance to it. Both attackers and defenders usually have pretty fair advantages over each other. The whole map design has this classic counter-strike vibe to it.

However, both Inferno and Dust 2 are also great maps depending on whom you ask. All of them showcases what great competitive map design looks like.
