The latest update, named "Scouting Ahead", brings to the competitive CS:GO about a much requested change to the economy system alongside several changes to Danger Zone and the UI.

From this point, Valve capped the round loss bonus at five. This means that teams will no longer be able to build up a loss bonus of $3,400 that will continue for multiple rounds. The money received will step down to $2,900. 

Alongside, players can now list themselves as “Looking to Play”, notifying their friends that they are open to matchmaking invites and will now be able to see upcoming professional LAN events through the watch tab, thanks to an HLTV-provided schedule.
