Competitive CS: GO went through a relatively significant change today, with Valve eliminating bots from the video game. Traditionally, if somebody was kicked or detached from a competitive match, they would be changed by an AI bot that another member of the group could take over after passing away. This function has now been gotten rid of.

Bots in CS: GO have actually never been great and players have requested improvements to the AI. Instead of entering that direction though, bots are being gotten rid of from competitive (5v5) and Wingman (2v2) entirely. This brings CS: GO more in line with Rainbow Six Siege, which does not include player-replacing AI bots in competitive modes either.

There is still some room for improvement here though. Valorant for circumstances offers the team with a money increase in the event that they lose a gamer, providing them access to more gear and providing a better possibility of battling back while missing out on a teammate. For now, Valve is not going in this direction however maybe it is something the designers will consider later on.

There are other tweaks being made as part of today’s CS: GO patch, all of which you can discover HERE.
