Following a discussion in the Steam forums about Counter-Strike: Source VAC bans transferring to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, it was decided to make a separate VAC ban list for CS:GO.
A forum post from last week saw a concerned user stating that he had a CS:S VAC ban over a year ago and recently updated his ban, meaning he was also banned in the CS:GO beta.
In the VAC support article it stated that a ban in one of the following games, would result in a ban for all games.
Half-Life 2: Deathmatch,
Day of Defeat: Source,
Team Fortress 2
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
The most recent reply in the thread is by ChadW, a person clearly associated with Steam, stating the following:
"After further review we have decided to remove the link between Source VAC bans and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The FAQ linked by heffebaycay has been updated to reflect this change.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now a unique ban and bans in other games will not affect your ability to join VAC secure games in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive."
So any users with VAC bans in top four game titles on the list will not have a ban in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, neither the beta nor the full game.

I was replying to that
Valve feared to lose money so they made cheating in other games legit.
Seriously. People who cheat in CS:S will also try to cheat in CS:GO. It's a question of character. Scum will stay scum.
Of course, you could 'mirror' this new account the closest to the first one as long as it does not cost you additional money (I wouldn't spend more if besides the vac ban affected games there are other paid games in the 1st account that one could still play with vac).
The thing is that you can not play a game that is not released yet due to past abuse just because they share the engine so to speak. Which actually leads, and I do not know if Valve is aware of this depending on how long the Source engine will last, that any future affected game will have to feature a separate ban list too to respect this 'CS:GO pact'.
so technically they make less money by allowing banned VAC users to play CS:GO
(i would prefer all games on your account to be banned if you were caught cheating)

actions have consequences so fuck them cheaters. If he is n00b enough to use it in source he is n00b enough to use it in CSGO.
To be honest I think people who cheat should get there Steam Account closed or like they did in Max Payne 3 "cheaters Hell" if your caught cheating then your domed to only play with other cheaters. Then they can cheat as much as the want.

People are raging at something that is completely pointless. The people who are VAC banned would have been playing this game even without this decision.
Wow, grow a brain :)

i just tried csgo again and for some reason i had around 40fps, before i had around 100 (less in heavy action of course). quite irritating. either valve made some bad changes or my pc started suddenly suck more
My original 5dig was banned when we played a cs event at an internet cafe.
This was in maybe 2007. Back then the cafe needed to have a "Cafe License" or at max 5 connections to steam.
Obviously 40 of us logged in and we all got instantly banned. Steam did offer to remove the bans if you had the correct ID. I was one of the unlucky ones to not have my original CD Case, and the email was a sponsored team name on some crappy webmail service which went bust within a few weeks and domain lost.
So lots of us lost accounts that day.

Might be worth checking, it's been like 5 years.
But when they changed to permanent all those bans also
became permanent. Even if your ban was like two days
away from becoming unbanned.
Is what a friend of mine experienced anyway.
Thankfully i've still got my original account, even
after logging in at an inet cafe once. PHEW! XD
ggwp valve :D
I preordered csgo and still isnt avaliable

once a cheater always a cheater.
many pros cheated in the past and now theyre top5-10 world. ban 4 life?
retard use ur brain if u have one simple-minded island monkey.
Fucking moron... Most of these cheaters didn't play competitively, they just spent their days on deathmatch aimbotting and speedhacking. We do not want these people back in the community.
Explain how i was not using my brain when coming up with the conclusion that we don't want people that cheat in our community? Fucking stupid children.
ah yeah to someone get vac banned in 1.6 ,it is almost impossible.
i love valve... would be nice if they would update their anti cheat for hl1 at least... if they see that the game is still alive and it is top3 and was top1 for many years in steam ... why dont focus on a game with a community? i dont understand the team that is working on cs:go...
I think it's news for cheaters then.
