Pimp: "I still think Vertigo is by far the worst competitive map that’s ever been in the map pool"
Analyst Jacob "Pimp" Winneche said that he considers Vertigo to be the worst map in the history of the Counter-Strike competitive scene. He noted on his Twitter page that his opinion is based on personal feelings during the game and watching matches.
I still think Vertigo is by far the worst competitive map that’s ever been in the map pool— Jacob “Pimp” Winneche (@Pimp_CSGO) December 8, 2022
I can’t think of a map I personally have disliked more playing or watch being played
While it’s all personal preference (and that’s totally okay!) I must admit I’ll never learn to love it
Vertigo originally appeared in CS 1.6 and was added to CS:GO after a major update in October 2012. Five years later, the map was removed from the competitive map pool for rework and returned to the game in January 2019.
Interestingly enough, at the recent IEM Rio Major 2022, Vertigo was among the most popular maps, lagging behind only Mirage and Inferno.
