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.

Maybe they should ban the bug with you not being flashed if you throw a decoy with right click and then a flashbang on the decoys position with right click as well right after. That way you wont be flashed but everyone else will. Try it yourself. Just ban it so we wont see some cheeky players use it at the event and then see everyone on hltv cry about it.
2015-07-15 23:47
Did u even test the flash?
2015-07-15 23:52
4 days ago. I doubt valve has patched it since
2015-07-15 23:54
I was watching a stream yesterday and he did the flash bug to the viewers so..
2015-07-16 00:20
Tried that yesterday and it didn't do anything remotely close to what all the videos proclaimed
2015-07-15 23:54
No one gets flashed with that.
2015-07-15 23:54
works but which situation you can use it for
2015-07-15 23:54
if you want to go through a door or something and you know he is peeking the position. Throw a decoy and then the flash and peek with it, easy.

well u dont actually gain anything from that bug.. since u have to be totally still, u cant move ur mouse or anything in order for it to work.. just in case u didnt know, I've discovered this shit like 2 yrs ago whilst trying to find out new flashes n shit messing around at the server and decided not to give a crap and post it anywhere since its not game breaking at all.
2015-07-16 01:29
nah, with this one you can actually walk and stuff

wut? I tried it and when I throw a decoy and then flash it doesnt work unless I stay still lol? O_O
2015-07-16 01:51
You don't need to be still to pull it off. You're just bad lol

it's not even that specific, it works with 2 flashes(instead of 1 flash and 1 decoy) and it can be used with any of the buttons (not only the right click) as long as you throw the 2 nades in the exact same way and don't move at all :< Broken stuff. youtube.com/watch?v=AAY04TC52rg
2015-07-15 23:54
No, it's not that one. That one is patched already, isn't it?
2015-07-15 23:56
Portugal dracø 
Not sure tbh, never tried it. The concept is pretty much the same as the one you described tho, so if one works, the other should work as well. (Or volvo fixed half of the problem, wouldn't be anything new xD)
2015-07-16 00:00
The one I'm talking about, you can move a bit and change your crosshair placement too.

Then you are right, it's a completely different thing. Still broken :P
2015-07-16 00:04
Which is why I want them to ban it because it's not like valve is going to patch it quick haha

2015-07-16 09:11
yea you can also do it with left click but into the ground :D this is op
2015-07-16 00:12
Too hard to check for the organizers + the move is unpractical to perform in an actual match anyway. Still true that it should be fixed asap.
2015-07-16 00:50
It isn't unpractical. It is even very OP. Consider this. You are ct on dust 2, and the t has planted the bomb at b. You have NO IDEA where he is. Lets just assume he goes car. If you throw a decoy through the doors first and then a flash on top of it and peeks behind it, then he has to turn around or he will get flashed while you can see and just take his head off. You even have time to look around to see where he is then since you have an advantage on about 2 - 3 seconds

Bug not working, no-one will be flashed
2015-07-16 03:51
I thought we couldn't move until the second flash popped out. Which is why I thought it was unpractical and pretty useless (if you peek with your back turned it's basically the same). But apparently the bug is still there but less effective than before.
2015-07-16 21:10
No because peeking with your back turned means you have to wait for the sound from the flash to pop which is what the other player is also doing since he will also turn around (Since you don't make a popflash with a flash like this). Then it's all about who turns around the fastest and adjusts his aim for a hs. Here you can peek in the flash without getting flashed, the enemy can't

Will happily abuse the fuck out of it thanks

2015-07-16 01:07
In that glitch it doesn't flash ANYBODY. Lmfao.
2015-07-16 01:26
yes it does
2015-07-16 01:36
No it doesn't, the flash goes inside the decoy and thus the decoy acts as a wall. It doesn't flash anyone.
2015-07-16 02:56
exactly, the decoy works as a wall so all you have to do is step on one side of the decoy and throw the flash a little further than the decoy. This has always worked in mm for me when I have tried
2015-07-16 08:55
Is that a joke? No pro player would ever use that in a real match. It's completely useless.
2015-07-16 01:41
It doesn't flash anyone.
2015-07-16 01:45
dude you realise that, it doesn't work.. Nobody gets flashed by it :P

Nice "bug", imo it should be allowed
2015-07-15 23:42
I don't know how many throws it prevents, but the glitch is clearly game breaking if you can stop the train only with one decoy...
2015-07-15 23:48
as far as I know, it's only the molotov that t's throw in the start of the right on short b so they can take sewers easily without worrying about a ct pushing unless he goes through the molo and loses a lot of health. They sometimes also nade and popflash that position. Every other smoke can be thrown from other positions, I think.

Time to use in MM now

well too bad cause it will be useless in mm since noone knows any smokes and mollies on overpass there

It's an error in the game. You can compare it with Fnatic's DHW boost. I mean; sure, it was kind of a strat, but the map was not meant to be that way. The map is broken, and it needs to be fixed. I don't even understand what a noisy, running train has to do in a competitive map... ._.
2015-07-16 02:58
realism? idek Volvo pls fix everything
2015-07-16 03:26
Yes! Meaning a well placed grenade on the rails should be able to derail the train and kill everyone on B site or crash the bridge so the sites merge and all cts just die.
