Following the end of the StarLadder Berlin Major 2019 where it was seemingly impossible to stop Astralis from winning on Vertigo, the dev team has stepped up and introduced some major changes on the map.
The A-site has undergone a major transformation which might change the way CT-side sets itself up for an attack from the opposition.

Apart from the specific changes to the bombsites, some other changes have also been made around the map.
While all these changes are absolutely perfect, there seem to be dots added by the devs to help players land a boost smoke on the transformed vertigo as well.
While massive changes were introduced to Vertigo, some gameplay changes were also introduced.
