Overpass decoy bug banned
FACEIT and DreamHack have announced that the train decoy bug on de_overpass will not be allowed during the event in Valencia.
Following July 9's update, the pattern in which the train on de_overpass passes has been changed from random to regular: the first train will start to move 10 seconds after the Terrorists leave their spawn tunnel.
Recently, it was discovered that, by throwing a decoy grenade onto the tracks approximately 16 seconds into the round, it was possible to stop the train, which would eliminate the option to throw grenades onto the B bombsite.
At the cost of just $50, the CT team could eliminate a series of strategies on the part of the Terrorist players. As such, FACEIT and DreamHack have deemed this move a "game-breaking glitch", one that will be banned from all tournaments they host, including the FACEIT League Stage 2 finals, which kick off on Thursday.
All teams caught using this decoy bug will be deducted three rounds for every time it was performed.
