The introduction of Vertigo to official map pool caught everyone off guard and pro players, commentators and public figures once again went online to vent their frustrations.
Some were defending the developers and their decision, most were actively complaining. Others tried to maintain calm and offered how the current meta might look on this new map.
These and other reactions to Vertigo in our collection of tweets from top CS:GO personalities.
Vertigo being added sucks mainly because it seems less viable than a slew of other maps and will most likely be banned every game. If they added Fire, Mill, Tuscan, Contra, Russka, Season etc.. you would probably see these played more then other maps in the current pool 🤷♂️

I love the idea of having new maps into competitive CS. But I’m not sure about that one 🤔

Valve can do whatever they want, it’s their game, they can add any map, they can remove any map, they can change any weapon, understand this already please and instead of "crying" in social media just keep working hard in any different situation

Alright I've spent an 1hour~ on vertigo trying to figure out things. Executes on B will be possible but on A it's gonna be really tough. You will most likely end up playing first minute behind smokes and molotov as T.
Now I don't know what the meta will be but it's just a feeling
