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%?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
