You can play tic-tac-toe on CSGO's Inferno now, for real
It has been a long time coming, but fans of CSGO’s Inferno map can really, truly play Tic-Tac-Toe in the attacking spawn.
It has always been a pastime for the attacking team to engage in the friendly schoolyard game during warm ups, but Counter-Strike: Global Offensive’s latest update has added the ability to play Tic-Tac-Toe for real, complete with X's and O's, winners, and losers. Previously, players were left to shoot their own X’s and O’s on the grid in T spawn, but Valve has now added a script that allows them to play for real.
All players have to do is shoot a square on the board, drawn in T spawn, with any weapon to place the first circle. The second player to shoot a square will place an X. The best part about the whole thing is that CSGO keeps track and wipes the board when one player wins or the game ends in a draw. When someone wins, the game plays the iconic bell sound that Inferno is known for.
It’s a fun addition to the game, especially with the added update to improve the visibility of players that came alongside the update. CSGO’s latest update added a new setting in the game’s options that the developers say should improve contrast between player models and the maps’ backgrounds.
CSGO update adds Inferno games alongside contrast setting in new update
After the introduction of custom agents to CSGO in last year’s Operation Shattered Web, players have complained that many of the custom agents were difficult to see. The update aims to improve those issues.

The update may also signal that more custom agents are on their way in the form of another CSGO battle pass. If that is the company's plan, it may want to hurry. The start of the second set of Regional Ranking tournaments, including CS_Summit 6 and WePlay!’s Clutch Island, is right around the corner.
