Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has received another patch following on from the recent weapon balance patch. This one nerfs the power of the Desert Eagle handgun and adds a new spectator mode. The full patch notes are below:

[Notable]

  • Nerfed the Deagle.
  • Added a feature to spectate friends games via GOTV.
  • In ‘Play With Friends,’ if a friend is on an official matchmaking server the WATCH option will appear next to their name.
  • DM immunity changes:
  • Default immunity was raised to 10s.
  • Moving cancels immunity.

[Misc.]

  • Fixed dedicated server memory leak.
  • Reserved server with connected GOTV spectators will hold reservation after all players disconnected for at least TV delay time to allow spectators to watch the match to the end.
  • Added convar sv_hibernate_punt_tv_clients to also punt lingering TV spectators after all players disconnected and at least TV delay time elapsed.
  • tv_snapshotrate will now correctly adjust client-side rates automatically for smooth spectating experience.
  • Added convar tv_relayradio, 0 = off, 1 = relay team radio commands to GOTV (default value = 0).
  • Added convar tv_relaytextchat, 0 = off, 1 = relay “say” chat only, 2 = relay “say” and “say_team” chat to GOTV (default value = 1).
  • Team kills and team damage is now preserved for players in competitive games across disconnects and reconnects.
  • Fixed a regression in naming of tv_autorecord demo files.
