Teams come to agreement not to use "crouch jump"

July 17th, 2017 23:40

All 16 teams at the PGL Major Krakow have come to an agreement not to use the crouch jump mechanic that BIG brought to light in their matches against FaZe and Cloud9.

Over the course of the last few months, a new mechanic was brought to light that allowed players to spot over various objects without being seen by using a specific combination of a crouch and a jump.

After the issue was brought up at the Major, the tournament's head admin confirmed that the mechanic was indeed legal, which led to several teams making isolated gentleman's agreements not to use it in their matches.

All teams including BIG agreed not to use the crouch jump mechanic

Later on, more teams came together to discuss the issue in the tournament area, before the conversation was moved behind closed doors with representatives from most of the teams, including BIG.

In the end, all 16 teams present at the Major have come to the agreement not to use the mechanic in the remainder of the tournament, as explained by Scott "SirScoots" Smith, who helped the teams unite on the issue:

ofc BIG going to lose now lol

EU org with all South American players who play in America against American teams, doesn't really scream European to me. inb4 they play like europeans, no they play smart. -someone who doesn't even like SK

Well, it's their chance to prove that it doesn't matter, they're capable of it in my opinion.

Mark my words they're about to drop 3 in a row and take the train back to Naziland.

The problem is if they lose now vs sk or something, everyone will jump and start flaming BiG for only being able to win with the jump bug.

Wow, just as I posted that Big is confirmed to go up against SK. That really sucks, because either way they already have a low chance at winning that but now if they lose it will be because of the jump bug to everyone else
2017-07-18 00:24
+1000 exactly my thoughts!!! I mean come on Nex and TabseN outaimed C9, keev with some crucial picks, legija and gob b aswell with good kills.
2017-07-18 00:31
Crucial bannana..using the jumpbug..
2017-07-18 13:35
actually just for mad FaZe and C9 fangays. No, seriously..ppl who'll say that just want to bait. I think everyone fears SK and it's kinda obvious that you can't win against them :D
2017-07-18 00:34
ya dont see why some people are mad at big, a fair amount of teams used it as well and its not like using it a few times to spot a player wins you entire games
2017-07-18 01:26
Finally, a voice of reason :)

if it wins you rounds it wins you games Jump spotting banana with no risk of being heard or shot and then prefiring a guy you spot opens up a bombsite for your team. Or using it in pit when you're after plant to spot a walking CT trying to retake then prefiring him wins you rounds (Both examples used by BIG this major)

My personal view of situation...big win 2 game of bug will face sk...what will happen if sk go for the bug jump against big...dont get me wrong but i think will b 16-0 for sk if sk use this bug...without bug alrdy destroy australis...and everyone of sk know how to use the bug they just dont use obvious big acept this now..bcz if both use we know sk will wins this role major
2017-07-18 00:58
if you really think big only won those 2 games because of that exploit you are completely deluded

They earned that. They agreed not to use it, but they still use it. Dick move. They are NOT worth any trust now.

Not 100% sure on this, but I thought big only agreed after the c9 match?
2017-07-18 02:20
Kind of late, don't you think? :( Anyway BIG's reputation from now is: cheaters and dishonest players. Even if that bug had ZERO impact on game, they will be shamed as they used it.

but they didn't use after the agreement why would they be dishonest players? I think most of it is from cry babies they used something that was in the game and wasn't against the rules now that it is, use it would make them dishonest playing in a smart way don't make you dishonest.

I agree, and in my opinion ppl will not think that BIG were dependent on the bug because they lost to SK, I mean SK is the team to be beat now, if it were some t3 team I would see a point, but not against SK, besides, they can win, I mean, they are a very good team that can really upset SK.
2017-07-18 08:53
A few baits will of course But I think that it was very crucial for them because they had the upper hand in very important retakes and holds. I also think that when BiG drops 3 loses in a row maybe even one against C9 or F3 it would be good indication. (Of course if they loose against a Team like FaZe, Astralis, SK it doesn't mean shit)

3-0 inc to shut the haters up

It's irrelevant that they came to an agreement, it's just like "yeah, you used it, you're a piece of shit" they can still use it and just be assholes.
