CSGO Update Funny

Recommended Posts

"Counter-Strike: Global Offensive had one of its best ever months after going free to play, and a record number of VAC bans were doled out on Steam as a consequence. Over 600,000 accounts received VAC bans in December, with the first wave of bans happening days after CS:GO shed its price. 

Spotted by Nors3 on Twitter, five waves crushed naughty players throughout the month. Hundreds of games use Valve’s anti-cheat system, which ostensibly (if not always in reality) detects cheats and automatically bans the account in question from playing on VAC protected servers, but after CS:GO went free to play, the number of bans sky-rocketed. 

In November, only 103,743 accounts were banned, according to SteamDB. That’s around six times fewer than December, and it was a pretty standard month. The number of bans in a month has never broken 200,000 in 15 years, so it’s a significant leap to get past 600,000.

The move to free to play and the addition of a battle royale mode drew the ire of some existing players, who then review-bombed the game. Things have settled down since the initial reaction, however, with recent positive reviews outweighing the negative ones. "

I saw a similar post on reddit too, regarding the mass amount of VAC bans in the last quarter of 2018. I believe this is pure and utter bullshit. There is no major VAC waves currently happening. The reason there are high ban rates is because people are using detected cheats and VAC delay bans just like any other Anti-Cheat. The VAC delay bans are just grouping the people together before banning them which makes it look like a VAC wave but it is just people using free detected CS:GO cheats.

Bans taken off steamDB, I believe don't just account for the CS:GO VAC and Game bans. They also have bans from PUBG, Rust, etc. (Any game that has a third party AC (Battleye, EAC) or VAC (CoD franchise, Dota 2, DayZ))
