Valve update VAC Ban ruling for CS:GO Majors

Valve have released an update regarding their VAC Ban ruling for the CS:GO Majors. Here is their announcement:


Valve update VAC Ban ruling for CS:GO Majors – What does it mean?

The statement that Valve released addresses that players that received a VAC Ban 5 years or more ago, are allowed to participate in Majors. Valve realised that their ruling on VAC Bans affecting majors was too old, and with the scene advancing and developing, they saw it necessary to re-shape how the rules around cheaters should look.

This comes with urgency as many players banned from CS:GO Majors have switched to VALORANT. The most recent example of this was none other than talented youngster, Elias “Jamppi” Olkkonen. He had formerly played for ENCE, but has recently made the switch to VALORANT to play for Team Liquid.

Despite making the switch to VALORANT, Jamppi still took to twitter to address the fact that he is no longer blacklisted from Majors. This means that if he decides to return to CS:GO at some point in the future, he’s able to take part in RMR events and show everyone what he’s truly made of.

What’s next?

With Valve updating the VAC Ban / cheating rule for CS:GO Majors, this will allow players that have done mistakes in the past to come back to the esport and redeem themselves.

With this news, Valve advised the public to feel excited for the upcoming 2021 RMR events. As it stands at the moment, the Stockholm Major is still on schedule to play out this Fall!
