Valve just implemented a new money system, which made 2nd round buys significantly stronger, as your reward after the pistol round is higher. Glace talks about all the relevant subjects revolving money management, and which approaches you should take. There’s a lot of thoughts going into money management, but the general idea is to play wisely and dont lose any unnecessary weapon or utility. This doesn’t only apply to anti-eco, but in overall. Keeping your economy stable, balanced and equalized can determine the outcome of a game. But money management does not only concern your own economy. It also includes the enemy economy, which means keeping track of how many they survived and when. This can help you determine when they’re on eco, or when they might force, giving you a better approach to the round.
