Finally we got the stickers update which is about 125 MB. I had to go to the dentist this morning which is why this video came out now, anyway enjoy. Hey guys, salut mes amis och hallå gubbar, Maxim here. So the FaceIT Major update has arrived today. The Major begins next week, but the team stickers, player autographs, and team graffitis are all available for purchase. And there’s a LOT OF THEM. Like always you have the Mega Bundle as well which includes all of this. 50% of the proceeds go to the players and organizations so buying stickers will support each team and team Stickers can be used in the 2018 Pick’Em Challenge. If you don’t know what the Pick’Em challenge is, basically you have to earn points by picking the right teams for the open slots.
It’s divided into 3 stages, the Challengers stage, the Legends stages, and finally the Playoffs. Depending on how many points you get, you will receive a dorito trophy, here’s bronze, silver and gold. Btw no one managed to get gold last Major you were LUCKY if you got silver. Also, when the games are live you will be able to receive these FACEIT Major Souvenir Packages for all the active duty maps. I was lucky to get a total of 3 from the last Major. Yes there’s no Cobblestone, but instead Dust2. Here’s another big change made for the Major, CS:GO will be freely available for offline play and GOTV viewing by installing “CS:GO – Free” from the Steam Store.
That’s right, so if you have a friend who wants to try out the game, play with the MP5 and even watch the tournament, it’s now possible. This is a very big and surprising change (that I REALLY like) as it introduces the game to more people at the perfect time, it’s a great strategy. I’ll talk more about the Pick’Em challenge in a future video, but now, the update. Oh no, it seems that the old scaleform UI is no longer supported, Panorama has taken over completely. RIP Scaleform UI, August 21, 2012 to August 30th, 2018.
However, Panorama has been updated to support low-end machines much better, which is obviously great news and a good compensation. They’ve also added support for weapon stickers and character gloves on this guy. But I can’t get it to work so I guess we’ll have to wait for a small patch. After that it’s mostly Panorama fixes, MP5 has had a little visual tweak and now you can finally get it to the workbench. There’s been a fixed texture blend on Mirage T-Spawn, and that’s pretty much what’s interesting from this update.
Oh and we also got ourselves the stability and security improvements, as always. What do you think about the stickers, which one is your favorite? Let me know down below. Team Liquid has a pretty cool one… Also let me know if you got more FPS from Panorama now. I’m really excited about the Major, it’s that time of the year when things start to get really interesting.
I also got a super cool announcement that will come in time for the Major, but I will announce it in my next video! Anyway, that was it. Hope you enjoyed it, I’ll see you guys in the next one, and go bananas. .
