Valve introduced official game servers for Argentina in Counter-Strike’s Jan. 20 live update. The developers have opened up the South American region, helping to stabilize ping and latency. 

The servers in Brazil—a country with a large CS:GO following—had previously been bogged down by players from bordering countries. The Portuguese and Spanish language barrier, and relentless lag, had been an unpleasant experience for all parties involved. 

The update, which went live last night, also included changes to Retakes, helping repair bugs in the game mode, along with adjustments to Apollo, fining tuning the map, and fixing common boost spots.
