Patch 8.02 is another small patch, but it’s only been a month since the game’s last major update in Patch 8.0, which introduced the new Outlaw rifle, changed the map pool, and significantly reduced the effectiveness of The all-powerful Killjoy turret.

In the latest patch, Esports Hub is back in a big way, Viper gets some minor visual updates and some bugs have been fixed.

The return of Esports Hub for VCT 2024

Esports Hub, the in-game home for information on the highest level of VALUE DETERMINATION esports, has been re-added VALUE DETERMINATION before the start of the 2024 VCT season.

The hub will feature fixtures and tables of events across all four international tournaments, and will eventually include graphics and images for global events starting with Masters Madrid on March. This year, the center will be even more crowded with a brand new VCT China tournament joining and featuring 11 teams competing in each tournament.

Although this is yet to be confirmed, with the imminent release of the VCT team interface, this center could become ideal for VALUE DETERMINATION players choose skins representing their favorite teams like Sentinels, Fnatic, DRX or EDward Gaming.
