Someone I know got an overwatch ban but he’s saying that he never cheated. He’s not that good at cs but all the sudden he starts top fragging. Is it possible to get Overwatch ban even though you’re legit? Is he cheating 100%?

pretty sure you know how Overwatch works
2020-08-11 21:08
overwatch cannot be wrong, he was cheating
2020-08-11 21:08
+1 u can not cheat on CSGO user overwatched games
2020-08-15 21:17
It is possible. Fl0m and Pimp got overwatch ban as well and i think they are probably not cheating :D
2020-08-11 21:09
Yes but they are pros though ofc they will dominate
2020-08-11 21:14
Your question was if its possible to get a OW ban even though you are legit. I just took them as an example.
2020-08-11 22:00
Ah ok but I’m talking about some average player

Pimp got banned for griefing, not for suspection of cheating.
2020-08-11 22:03
Both griefing
2020-08-11 22:11
But it is still an overwatch ban i guess :D Do you get notification for what you have been OW banned?
2020-08-12 13:18
yes you get different notifications and punishments for griefing and cheating
2020-08-12 13:22
griefing = minor cheating = major
2020-08-12 13:24
not for the second griefing ban, I don't think
2020-08-12 17:24
ye 2 minor = 1 major
2020-08-12 18:04
Griefing first time goes away after 35 days. 2nd time is perm, just like cheating
2020-08-12 16:58
ah okay, didnt know that!
2020-08-12 18:39

Maybe a clean player could get banned but I really dont think so. I think it's MUCH more likely that your friend cheats, maybe he's just careful when you are watching him.

Overwatch cases are reviewed by a lot of people and they have to come to the same decision, so it's very unlikely that your friend is legit
2020-08-11 22:10
If he was banned for cheating then he was cheating, they are reviewed by a lot of people, not just one. If it says he was banned for griefing then he wasn't cheating obviously.
2020-08-12 13:23
most of the overwatch bans are correct, but some of the overwatch bans are not, there is a possibility that you don't cheat but you can still get an overwatch ban. many csgo pros got overwatch ban too.
2020-08-12 13:25
for example, xantares had overwatch ban back in 2015. here, check the forum posts from 2015 also i agree with #4
2020-08-12 13:26
also ScreaM got an overwatch ban on his smurf or something
2020-08-12 13:37
yeah i remember scream's ban too :D
2020-08-12 13:42
The most recent ban wave (10th-11th aug) banned players by "Overwatch bans", but they were not Overwatch bans. It is a VAC ban wave, I can't tell you why they decided to make them look like game bans instead. If he got banned in between those dates, then he could have been cheating at any point in the past 6 months, and got flagged -> banned yesterday.
2020-08-12 13:41
really? are you sure about this stuff
2020-08-12 13:44
Yes. A Team Liquid admin got banned yesterday, multiple over lv 100-200 steam profiles of closet cheaters, thousands of skins worth banned yesterday (at least 100k total). edit: theres no bloody way they all got OW banned at the same time lmao unless someone is exploiting OW, which i can't really believe.
2020-08-12 13:48
ok that may be the case I guess.
2020-08-12 15:04 Take a look at this Video. This is actually an insane OW Exploit used by cheaters to OW ban innocent people. Scary shit.
2020-08-15 21:10
I knew this existed, this has nothing to do with the banwave. Sparkles is spreading misinformation, but I don't mind as long as it makes Valve take some action.
2020-08-16 08:18
wait so it is actually a vac ban?
2020-08-12 19:31
Yes, everyone that had a "game ban" and was in the wave just had their accounts changed to a VAC ban/ You can check your friends profile, maybe it shows as VAC. If it still says game, then it was an overwatch ban.
2020-08-12 19:33
Wait I got one too now but I didn’t even hack!?!? What do I do will it be removed?
2020-08-12 19:47
Fuck knows mate. I'm sure some innocent people got caught up in this wave, we'll have to see what happens.
2020-08-12 22:13
obv got sick of being bad and started cheating
2020-08-12 14:24
Overwatch is a shit game anyway, tell him to play Valorant or cs

If its perma ban the 100% cheating liar, please unfrirnd him if its temp ban then probably griefing
2020-08-12 17:02
It's possible that it's a mistake but very unlikely. He should complain to valve, they remove OW bans quite easily (happened to 2 friends of my despite one of them cheating for real).
2020-08-12 17:03
If it's a game ban(overwatch) than he could actually not been cheating, if is a VAC ban than is for sure a legit ban, the overwatch ban can be removed if you make a ticket and you weren't cheating.
2020-08-12 17:08
Overwatch bans are non-negotiable and cannot be removed or reduced by Steam Support. If an automated cooldown or ban is determined to have been issued incorrectly, it will automatically be rolled back by our servers. If you wish to discuss this system with the community, you may do so her
2020-08-12 17:38
You cannot cheat on VAC-protected servers.
2020-08-12 18:01
Overwatch bans are removed by admins, a romanian youtuber(lvl 10) got few years ago an permanent overwatch ban for cheating and he made an ticket and the ban was removed because it was a wrong one.

2020-08-12 18:07
Its possible many pro players had gotten overwatched, yet your friend is prob trash so he prob cheated
2020-08-12 19:50

90% of overwatch is wrong cus only triggered gold novas do it
2020-08-14 12:05 Look at this Video. Hackers managed to exploit OW and can get banned everyone involved in an OW case. Not just the suspect but everyone else as well.
2020-08-15 21:16
The OW exploit is correct and innocent people can get banned, this is right. But Sparkles is wrong by linking it to the recent banwave. It has nothing at all to do with the recent banwave lol.
