FACEIT: "Valve proposed rule on multiple team ownership"

MIRAA
May 18th, 2018 14:37

It was Valve that suggested that the rulebook for the next Major tackles the issue of multiple team ownership, FACEIT co-founder and Chief Business Officer (CBO) Michele Attisani has told HLTV.org.

The online qualifiers for the FACEIT Major will have an "entry restriction" rule stating that "teams and players should not have any financial interest in the success of any team that they are competing against."

The introduction of this rule aims to prevent multiple team ownership cases and will run throughout the entirety of the Major cycle, with teams and players having until the start of the stage of the competition in which they find themselves to disclose potential conflicts of interest and how they plan to address such issues.

Valve tackles issue of conflict of interest involving teams and players

Contacted by HLTV.org, FACEIT refused to comment on specific situations - such as RFRSH Entertainment's ownership of Astralis, Heroic and GODSENT, or Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko' ties to pro100 -, but confirmed that the rule was proposed by Valve itself.

"It was something that was proposed by Valve to include in our rulebooks, but something we fully support," Mr. Attisani told HLTV.org.

"The integrity of a competition, especially something as big as a CS:GO Major, should always be the priority for the publisher and the organizer and to do this we want to establish an open line of communication with teams and players.

"We will work directly with teams to understand how they plan to resolve the conflict."

When asked about what would happen should a conflict of interest be discovered after the start of the competition, the FACEIT chief guaranteed that teams face "the risk of being disqualified immediately."

Mr. Attisani also revealed that teams and players competing at the FACEIT Major will need to accept the following condition in order to be able to participate in the tournament:

"I am not currently aware of any conflict of interest that I might have with another participating team or any player on another participating team. If I currently have a conflict of interest, or become aware of one over the course of the event, I will immediately provide detail to the tournament officials explaining the nature of my relationship with the other player or players, and a plan for resolving the issue in the future. I understand that failure to report my conflict of interest may result in my disqualification from the event and/or forfeiture of proceeds.”

The qualifying process for the Major began on May 14 and will run through July 1. All four Minors will be held at the Twickenham Stadium, in London, while the Major itself will culminate with a live event at the SSE Arena, also in the British capital.

Do you know why they did that? They did it because they want to control more the transitions of the skins (money), in this way they are the "top1" transation. Whit this they won alot of money in the beggining , i don´t know what is their next "markting" strat!

2018-05-18 14:52
Same, Valve don't cares about CSGO. It's all about DotA
2018-05-18 16:53
valve is working in a big rebranding and that include care more about csgo. I think big changes are comming.
2018-05-18 17:32
That would be great, but through the last years i lost faith in Valve.

RFRSH don't understand why they are still allowed to own multiple teams which are on top playing in the same tournaments or leagues and even in RFRSH own tournaments. That's really strange and it was brought up multiple times already....
2018-05-18 15:16
Valve should be fixing the game and adding new maps not worrying about this bullshit

valve should respect their players before expecting them to respect the rules.
2018-05-18 15:32
This. Im pretty sure Karrigan is still a co-owner of Astralis, same with CajunB, will that affect player-owned orgs?

idk honestly but its quite disrespectful(not that they care) for valve to implemented all the rules they want and yet they can't fix the bugs in the game

Implementing rules are easier than fixing bugs. If it was so easy to fix bugs then there wouldn't be any

At max they can only own a very small part. Under 5 % or else they would be listed on virk.dk, the danish register of companies and their owners.
2018-05-18 16:51
Could be true, they both left quite a long time ago CSGO-wise. Still i believe they wouldn't allow themselves to be disowned of one of the largest CSGO orgs

Fu, valve. RFRSH ownership I can understand, but it would be such bullshit if pro100 can't compete only because it's owned by Zeus. By that line, YeaH can't play either cause, among their investors, are FalleN and TACO. (sorry for ma englando)

It's not that. But there are a couple of teams that are owned by pros who want to stimulate CS. It's not fair that they can't play.
