CS2 update changes system of spawn and improves Inferno

Counter-Strike 2 Release Notes for 2/28/2024

– Spawn position is no longer randomly determined when a player reconnects to a server during freeze time. The spawn point sequence is now configured at the beginning of the map and is saved/restored from round backup files.
    - In official matchmaking servers, players who disconnect and reconnect during freeze time will respawn in the spawn point they were assigned at the beginning of the round.
    - On community servers, players who disconnect and reconnect during freeze time will be assigned one of the five spawn positions assigned to the team that round.
    - When restoring from round backup files (which is recommended in tournament settings after disconnects/reconnects), players will spawn in the positions they were originally assigned at the beginning of that round.
– Fixed a bug where players would see a black screen after disconnecting and reconnecting multiple times during a technical timeout.
– Fixed a bug where players disconnecting and reconnecting to a competitive match would incorrectly interact with bot spawning algorithm.
