Rumor has it:
Upon the next time you start the game, you'll be greeted with this introductory popup to the MP5-SD: https://i.imgur.com/pm0bcDy.png
Like the MP7, the MP5-SD can be used by both the Terrorist and Counter-Terrorist sides, for the same price as the MP7 ($1500)
Sorry, this isn't League of Legends, because there are no release skins for the MP5
You can have a peek at the MP5's in-game attributes like recoil, time for recoil reset, and more through the local copy of the item schema
Size is ~50 MB
– Added the all new MP5-SD, available for testing Offline and in Official Casual and Deathmatch servers. It can be equipped in your MP7 loadout slot.
The MP5-SD's stats are HEAVILY based off the MP7's. Many aspects of both guns are completely identical. Their recoil patterns are identical as is their standing/crouching/firing accuracy. I'll list the differences below:
The MP7 has a "tracer frequency" of "3" (one tracer every 3rd bullet) while the MP5-Sd has a frequency of "0". Like other silenced guns the MP5-SD does not fire tracers. Its muzzle flash is also significantly less noticeable.
The MP5-SD's audible range is also significantly reduced compared to the MP7. The MP7 can be heard at basically all ranges, though the MP5-SD is audible up to a maximum of 800 units, same as the M4A1-S and USP-S. This clip showcases the distance. (The title claims the range is bugged, it is not. It has the same audible range and falloff as the M4A1-S and USP-S)
Unlike the M4A1-S and USP-S this silencer cannot be removed. It's almost missing one other notable feature present on the other silenced guns. It scares chickens when you fire! Valve please fix. :(
The MP7 has base damage of 29. The MP5-SD deals less damage with a base damage of 27.
The MP7 has a rather sluggish max player speed of 220. The MP5-SD has a higher max speed of 235.
The MP7 is pretty accurate when moving with a total movement inaccuracy of 30.46 (InaccuracyStand + Spread + InaccuracyMove). The MP5-SD has worse movement inaccuracy with a total movement inaccuracy of 40.60
The MP7 has a reload time of 3.13 seconds. The MP5-SD has a faster reload time of 2.94 seconds.
Edit: I forgot to mention the clip ready! (It's when your ammo count goes up in a reload allowing you to switch to another weapon.) For the MP7 it's 1.43 seconds. For the MP5-SD it's slower at 1.97 seconds.
If you know how to use the MP7 you should have no trouble picking up the MP5-SD as they share the same recoil patterns and play styles. Assuming you were never a fan of the MP7 in the first place, it might be best to stick to your preferred SMG. Because this gun is so similar to the MP7, and the MP7 is still often out-shined by options such as the UMP, I don't predict this gun will see significant use in high level play, though it is by no means a bad choice.
The MP5-SD is almost identical to the MP7 in terms of stats. The MP5-SD is less accurate when moving and deals less damage, though has a faster movement speed, slightly faster reload, and all the benefits of a silencer (no tracers, reduced volume and audible range, reduced muzzle flash)
Edit: My spreadsheet is now up to date with the new MP5-SD stats.
Congratulations on getting your A Level results and getting into university. The next few years of your life will be full of fun and new experiences, why not make CS:GO a part of it?

As a fan of hipster maps I really miss these maps. Just Office and Agency isn't cutting it anymore. Please Valve, I need my dose of Assault wallbangs, Vertigo boosts and jumps and Aztec 15-0 CT scores.
Valve just fixed the packet loss issue.
Fixed a bug causing some players, especially on DSL connections, to experience high packet loss due to packets being delivered out of order.
So for those who changed their net_maxroutable value to 1100 set it back to 1200 since this might hurt your packet loss and hit registration.
Have a nice day
Pretty much the title. I think there is high probability of valve doing this. Replacement Dlore comming?
After going 14-2 in regular season (+99, including a forfeit loss against a team that wouldn't reschedule to one hour later) and 4-0 in playoffs (+89, not a single map dropped), Team One win the league in a dominating fashion.
They take the $3300 and will continue playing in 12 days for a MDL spot, with 15 teams (top 8 from advanced, bottom 7 from MDL since one team forfeit their matches) fighting for four spots in next season's premier tournament.
