Top pros find flaws in CS2's movement
With the last big CS:GO tournament ending earlier today, all eyes are on CS2 coming into the end of the 2023 season. As pros test out and play the game, it's only natural that they would discover some incongruencies with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Specifically, Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski and Ricky "floppy" Kemery noted some issues with the movement and velocity in certain areas of the maps.
EliGE, in the tweet below, shows that peeking Overpass B site from monster feels sluggish and unsatisfying, a marked change from CS:GO's crisp movement.
User cosmictrigger01 on the Global Offensive subreddit made a post about a similar phenomenon, with the comments split on whether the issue was caused by the mud present when exiting monster or by the elevation change in the area.
On a similar note, floppy showed that in CS2, a player's movement changes when they are in water, with slower acceleration and maximum velocity.
In any case, the changes in movement are not certainly not well-liked in the professional community. Whether Valve intends to keep the movement system as is or continue changing and iterating on the Source 2-designed game will be a tale told over time.
