There were no rules against doing so. If you earned less money than the lady cleaning the public school toilets, you'd do the same. Valve destroyed NA CS. They could have banned the lot for 2 years and that'd be it, but they stuck with their unwise decision and must now suffer the consequences. They could have had more large tournaments, in the US, but they were/are too thick-headed to understand their own business to be honest.
U cheat u get ban.
Question u r asking is how long. U say 2 years is fair. It could be one or three, whatever.
Problem is, match fixing, wallhack or using aim assist is to cheat. If u did in the past, why don't u do it again when unban? It was easy money after all. Next time u will just be more cautious to not get caught.
It's even worst. U want to unban them coz they might become top players. They cheated in meaningless match, what they will do in a million dollar final? They did it for skins, will they say no to 500k if they are asked?
Can you please stop abbreviating words like you and are. It makes you look completely uneducated.
Take a look at similar cases, where Valve did not serve a permanent ban. Granted it is two different entities within the company, but nonetheless there needs to be a consensus in Valve, so that the customers know what to expect.
Have Valve banned flusha? No, so they clearly do not give one single fuck if professional players cheat or not.
Stop defending a company that has no idea how to support a professional community.
The people that are responsible for the community, events etc. are not the same as in the olden days of 1.6. If you cheated, you were actually punished - as opposed to today where you are glorified.
Do you really need to ask why? He clearly cheated his ass off. Had this been 1.6 he would have received an admin ban long ago. The "admins" of today are nothing but decorative entities without any power whatsoever.
If the tournaments hosts and Valve actually wanted to provide a fair-play environment, they'd start handing out reasonable bans instead of being scared little children with money on their mind.
So it is an opinion, not proofs. Justice is not working that way but let's say he cheated without being ban.
So what? Others, got caught, deserve to be unban coz of that?
For u, if one murderer is not convicted every others need to be release? It's a strange way of thinking if u ask me.
The point is, without any 100% cheat free environment, u can't take the risk to unban them. They are cheaters, the chance they do it again is higher than for others.
Same for match fixing, which is in my opinion, the same as cheating. They did it for low stakes, u can't allow them to be tempted by high stakes.
They are not victims here, they are perpetrators.
