Another Update - Fixing the "Save" Penalty

On November 15th, Valve introduced an update that reduced the impact of fire grenades, and with it introduced a "penalty" where if a Terrorist was left alive at the end of round time without accomplishing the map objective, the entire Terrorist team would receive NO money towards the next round. 

Today, Valve fixed this with a minor update to be the same as it has always been-- the player "saving" or surviving a round without a successful bomb detonation receives no new money, but his teammates still do. It's very common to see players flame the Valve team for pushing updates that introduce bugs or issues like this, but big time kudos to Valve for listening to the feedback and fixing this one very quickly. Well done, guys.
