As far as I understand the Broken Fang update is only if you pay for it, and it still doesn't have one of the most major gripes about MM servers: 128 tick.
Still retake servers sounds fun.
What I would love is more and better anti-cheats. The issue of course being that those tend to be invasive AF, but playing last night (we play two nights a week) and having two out of three matches with cheaters was just... it breaks your heart, it really does since now you've spent about an hour and fortyfive minutes on a game you just can't win and can't quit without being punished.
I'd agree that this update is a bit over-monetized but most of the premium features are those that are in line with what is to be expected with "game passes" these days. There is a decent amount of free content added and it's probably only a matter of time for the map vetoes trickle down.
I'd say you are a bit unlucky to encounter that many cheaters as they seem to be fairly rare (especially in comparison to the frequency of cheating accusations) in my experience playing prime but I guess there may be some regional variance.
We did a run through of the matches we played using some chrome extension (one of us did) where you can check past opponents and if they have been VAC banned and there are insane bumps at times so I am guessing we're currently in such a bump.
Some claim that certain levels are more commonly populated by cheaters as the accounts they run simply stack in to either first-run (Upper Silver) and then the level bump many cheaters can achieve and plateu at (cheats that are hard to detect rely on some skill from the player meaning that often you can still win against them). So might be that the rank we are around, DMG, is sort of filled. Combined with christmas holidays, Covid restrictions, and on and on - plus a dollop of bad luck... well there we are.
For those not playing CSGO, here are the Skill Ranks mentioned above
