Valve adds overtime in 3/7 update

Brett "Few" Sheffield on Thu, 03/07/2013 11:28PM
When Valve released CS:GO, it has a built in competitive mode that helps users setup a competitive match. Since then, they have not really made any major changes, until now. This update added the ability to use overtime in a competitive match, eliminating the match ending in a tie at 15-15.

The update also made changes to the workshop system and added commands to help the GO:TV replays to not cut off. Below is the full change log:

[MISC]
- Dedicated servers hosting workshop maps now record previously hosted collection information. This allows workshop servers to keep operating when steam servers are down.
- Old versions of workshop maps now properly remove themselves from disk when the map gets renamed.
- If a server is running a map group and has mp_endmatch_votenextmap set to 1, players vote for the next map at the end of the match

- Fixed a regression where leaderboards were sometimes not getting updated for classic competitive mode.
- Added concommand tv_time_remaining that prints how much time is remaining to the broadcast after the match has ended. This provides admins a method to confirm that the broadcast is complete before changing the level.
- Round backup files now correctly strip workshop path when expanding %map% pattern token.
- Round backups now correctly restore player team assignments even when restoring backup from other match half or from halftime.
- Round backups support restoring match in overtime phase.
- mp_warmup_end can now only be called if in warmup.
- Team changes in warmup now take effect immediately.

[ TOURNAMENT ]

- Added built-in game rules for resolving tied tournament matches in overtime periods.
- Overtime convars:
- mp_overtime_enable ( default 0 ) - match will go to overtime if tied in regulation time.
- mp_overtime_maxrounds( default 6 ) - sets number of rounds for overtime, teams switch sides halfway through the overtime.
- mp_overtime_startmoney( default 10000 ) - sets starting money for each overtime half.
- mp_overtime_halftime_pausetimer - when enabled will turn on another convar mp_halftime_pausetimer after tied regulation time and after each overtime half which would require match server admin/bot to set mp_halftime_pausetimer to zero when teams are ready to proceed.
