Valve has been tinkering with multiple maps and deploying updates focusing on bug fixes for what feels like forever, but with the latest update, new CS: GO features have been released. The updated is entitled “Scouting Ahead” and introduces new ways to find teammates, a way to follow track your favourite CS: GO events in-game and the ability to track your enemies in Danger Zone with a drone.

These three new CS: GO features are long overdue, well, at least the first two are, with the Danger Zone one not really being something I am personally interested in. Even so, it is great to see Valve deploying new CS: GO features and continuing to work on the game.
The first feature is all about events and tournaments. Players can now track their favourite tournaments and they will be notified when a tournament is about to go live so they don’t miss a second of the action. Valve is also leaving it up to players to decide which CS: GO event in June will feature on the main menu, as they explained that:
Players, you have until June 1st to decide which June CS:GO event will be featured on the main menu! Find and favorite events in-game by clicking the Watch tab.
