The Competitive Matchmaking map pool previously contained every map in CS: GO, making it difficult for new or recently updated maps to stand out among the crowd of available options and generating poor matches as a result.

Over time, promising new or updated maps will enter the map pool, and less played maps will continue to be removed. Some of the least-played maps have been removed from the pool, and some new maps have been added: Austria, Shipped, Agency, and Insertion. As with the Competitive Matchmaking map pool, the Casual map pool and map groups will be updated over time.
