CS:GO Dust II Revamp

Counter-Strike blog points the way to this post on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive map Dust II, calling this "one of the most balanced and iconic CS:GO maps around." This sounds like something that isn't broken, but Valve outlines their efforts to fix it nonetheless. This involves some visual upgrades and changes, some of which impact gameplay beyond aesthetics. They also say they are planning more polish once the dust settles:

Dust II has evolved over the years into one of the most balanced and iconic CS:GO maps around. With this in mind, we set out to refine it further rather than performing a wholesale redesign. Your beta feedback will help us check if our initial goals were appropriate, have been realized and what the next steps are. After getting feedback on the visual upgrade, what would you like to see next as the map continues its evolution? We want to hear from you.

they removed the staircase in B so that little area doesn't look raised anymore for... clarity?

There appears to be a gradual incline in the ground, so it's still a raised platform. That will help a player hiding behind the box, before it can be difficult to tell exactly where your head is with the steep incline. Now it favours the guy hiding there.

they added new stairways on random inclines but only partway across them for... I GIVE UP

Do you mean the Terrorist side of mid? I like that change too, it's very common for an AWPer to be behind that box and along the wall to cut the viewing angle to B. Often just the top of his head is showing, but now with steps, the CT rotating by the door crack can run across a specific point and know exactly what a head will look like on that peak.
