Teams to vote on coaching rule for ESL One: Road to Rio

ESL has asked the teams who will take part in ESL One: Road to Rio about changes to the coaching eligibility rule.

In an email sent out by ESL and obtained by HLTV.org, teams have been given a 24-hour deadline to vote on the possibility of coaches being allowed in the server during the ESL One: Road to Rio tournament and talking to players "without restrictions".

This option will require the "unanimous approval of all participating teams" in the tournament. If at least one team votes against it, then coaches will not be allowed inside the game server and will not be able to speak to players during the matches.

The future of the coaching eligibility rule may be in the teams' hands

The proposal came after Valve "reviewed additional feedback on the coaching rule", the email read. In August 2016, the game developer limited the impact of a coach to pre-game warmup, half-time breaks and tactical pauses, explaining that unrestricted access would make coaches "function as a sixth player, and not solely as a source of guidance or training." The rule initially applied only to Valve-sponsored events, but other tournament organisers quickly adopted it as well.

ESL One: Road to Rio will kick off on Wednesday in Europe and in the Americas, with the CIS tournament scheduled to start on April 30, while the Asian and the Oceanic divisions will begin only on May 6. It will be held online as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and will be the second tournament to award Regional Major Rankings (RMR) points towards the ESL One Rio Major.

im talking more about some pre-developed ways for players to hear the coach without it being heard in teamspeak also theyd have to hire like 30 admins alone for what youve come up with, doesnt seem too easy

players could stream their entire game privately for the admins so that all the audio the players hear (including teamspeak) to ensure no cheating.
2020-04-21 04:43
And coach can just stand behind them in their office (with the teams that have one) Thats the problem bud.

only ones getting fucked over are teams who would be against it. this would be big buff on already strong teams that have been able to gather lot of strong players and now have opportunity to go for 5.

For those of you that got into the pro scene after 2016, just to clear up a couple questions: Yes this would make IGL's useless in the majority of scenarios. That was how it was done pre-2016, and for the most part coaches acted as in game leaders. Valve decided this wasn't the direction they wanted the competitive scene to go in (i apologize but i don't care enough to go look for exact quotes atm) and decided something to the effect of 'Our goal for Valve sponsored Majors is to determine the best FIVE MAN squad in Counterstrike; allowing coaches to communicate in server essentially adds a 6th player to the squad, which we deem to conflict with our image of the game'. The rule at the time technically only applied to Valve sponsored majors, but because no one wanted to play non-major events with a coach and then be lost at the Major, the rest of the scene followed suit. They're bringing a vote on it now because there is no current LAN scene, everything's being played online with teams playing from their own respective homes and/or team bases, meaning that while there may be no way for a coach to speak to players in game, theres nothing stopping the whole team from joining Teamspeak or Discord outside of the server and allowing the coach to IGL while watching the game over their players shoulders (or im sure theres a way they could watch live on their own screen, not sure). All this new vote is really doing is allowing the teams to decide to forego the effort of using teamspeak or discord and let the coaches legally be in the server. The big question mark (if the vote passes) is how this would affect the way teams approach their lineups for the Major, as it wouldn't make much sense to allow coaches in the server for the online qualifiers and not the actual Major itself (assuming Covid dies down by November and the Major is played on LAN). Also if it does pass, would Valve continue to allow coaches to IGL after the Rio Major, or would they reinstate the 5-man rule. It all has HUGE implications on the business side of the game, as IGL's usefulness would be cut drastically and lineups and contracts would be changed to reflect that. TL;DR Teams can use discord right now to let coaches IGL, valve giving teams option to forego that extra effort, might cause huge lineup changes post-major, will be interesting to see
2020-04-21 00:56
thanks for the clear up!

I think its more on the line of making it equal for all. Teams bootcamping will have the coach talking all time behind them, while teams with each member in his home may have some difficulties, so theyd be in a disadvantage.

2020-04-21 01:00
This is stupid imo. It completely changes the dynamic of how teams are built. You can stack your team with more firepower as IGLs become unnecessary. It's an important role, that is needed for aspiring players that may not have the skills of the very elite players. There is nothing wrong with the timeout system.

I am fine with the new system if its only for the online matches during thr current crisis. I guess most teams would not change their lineups by kicking their IGL if they know that they need him fot LAN-play again. On a permanent basis this is trash and just removes a really big and impactful part of the game.

"coaches being allowed in the server during the ESL One: Road to Rio tournament and talking to players 'without restrictions'". Imagine a coach spending the full round time looking at a well-positioned guy in the crowd that gives him the other team's spots. Nice.
2020-04-21 01:41
why can't it be 90% ffs why unanimous wtf. Ofcourse 1 team will vote against lmao
2020-04-21 02:08
yeah this is braindead
2020-04-21 02:57
I think this change would be ideal for the current situation, but it simply wont happen. Any team without a coach, such as MIBR, would automatically have no reason at all to vote in favor of this.
2020-04-21 02:26
Even with a coach. Every team has to ask. "Do we have a coach that can give us permanently input or being IGL? If the answer is no, you vote against it.

Not agree in professional sport coach is on the bench. This rule will destroy all the underdogs team cause T1 team also got the better coach and it’s will kill the in game leader roll.
2020-04-21 09:01
well new contenders will be expected to have a coach. that may be positive. I'm not so sure it will destroy underdogs. better and richer teams already got yoga class, gaming house, psychologist, nutritionist, guru etc and underdogs are still a thing nevertheless

Not going through teams like bad news bear from na will vote no and heretics will vote no.

PLEASE EXPOSE WHATEVER TEAM VOTES AGAINST, WE WANNA KNOW
2020-04-21 02:57
ESL wouldn't do that without their permission. Anonymous vote is an importan tool so people can vote what they want without punishment. People who live in a real democracy knows that.
2020-04-21 09:15
I hope they leak who voted : NO
2020-04-21 03:22
+1 lmao
2020-04-21 05:34
Why? So you can flame them cause you're toxic and cant accept a decision?

2020-04-21 04:44
lmao YNK he is the coach that just shouts and nothing else which results in a choke like 12-3 to 13-16 vs navi on train
2020-04-21 05:24
Both options suck I suppose.
2020-04-21 07:09
imagine Ynk notbeing listened to the whole game, not just in the tactical pauses.

I still find it funny that anyone thinks there will be a LAN major in november. It's not gonna happen, because of travel restrictions. E. g. the prime minister of Czech republic recently announced their borders should be closed for 1 year. I get it that organizors want to prepare but its a little silly. Holding online minor six monts before major is another thing i really dont understand.
2020-04-21 07:25
I think major will be held offline if online ain't possible, but I don't know. For sure you've got a point, though.

No reason for them to allow it, It strenghtens Na'Vi and FaZe while it doesn't help Astralis too much.
2020-04-21 09:14
it would surely help astralis as well. they arent what they used to be and the best coach in the world helping them whole game is benefit for them without a doubt. i agree with navi with you but i still think that astralis will vote for it... on the other hand mibr, heretic will surely be against

The negatives outweight the positives for Astralis. There's no way they are giving Na'Vi such an advantage. Gla1ve can call well himself, of course zonic would help, but Na'Vi being led by B1ade is just too scary for any of the teams to allow. And honestly for a team like MiBR or Heretics this doesn't really change much.
2020-04-21 09:19
"And honestly for a team like MiBR or Heretics this doesn't really change much." thats the point. heretics coach is banned and cant go with them anyway and mibr is mibr(with manager) so no way that those 2 teams will vote for:D

Well and do you think the teams won't discuss it? It's absolutely clear teams like FaZe or Na'Vi will be trying to change the minds of other teams.
2020-04-21 09:22
tbh i dont think that there will be some kind of discussion. this rule will boost some teams a lot while it will have no positive impact at all on others so those teams have no reason at all to vote for... also this rule would boost bigger and richer teams in the future and i dont know if it would be a good thing

Why wouldn't there be a discussion? Of course the teams will discuss it, it's not like they're completely isolated. Still the problem doesn't lie in the lower ranked teams that as you say have no reason to vote - those teams can be talked to voting for one option or another. Problem is in someone like fnatic who just aren't going to vote for yes. Also what about the future? We are only talking about one tournament.
2020-04-21 09:28
the point is that a lot of teams have no reason to even discuss it because they know that it will have no benefit for them while it will boost a lot your opponents. sure some team like fnatic, astralis, faze etc can have some discussion but they will not change mind of teams like heretic... "Also what about the future? We are only talking about one tournament." tournamet organizers follow valve and majors a lot so im like 100% sure that if this would pass somehow then other tournaments would use the same rule

You don't understand. It's pointless to debate in any further and to be honest it's foolish that you think this way. And Valve doesn't have such a dominant position anymore, organizers don't have to follow everything that Valve does and I'm pretty sure that it would cause backlash once again.
2020-04-21 09:38
dude im just realistic. heretic at very least will be against no matter what and no discussions will change that... and i didnt say single world about valve being dominant or that organizers have to follow them. i said that they do it anyway and if valve wont be agaisnt and 100% of majors team will vote for it you can bet that other organizers will immidiately change their rules
2020-04-21 09:41
That rule change changed a lot many teams had kicked their coaches cuz the coach was actually IGL. I doubt that teams agree to it that have no IGL coach and that are the most teams. Astralis, Navi would maybe profit from it but EG or Forze??

yeah thats true, but its strange like if 15 teams in eu say yes and 1 no thats all over, decided that no.. its should be like other sports where decided who vote most not enough only 1 no.

Blad3 could make navi a real top11 team that way.

Absolutely no point of this vote, teams without a good coaches will vote no even if they bribe them, and its unanimous as well so there is not a single chance this vote to pass

It's how a lot of important votes work, you assume the status quo to be fine, but then if literally everyone wants to improve the situation in the same way, then there's no denying that it's the right choice.
2020-04-21 15:31
But really, an unanimous vote? Surely a supermajority would work

I think it's just because it's been this way for so long, that if they're gonna change it here it has to be unanimous.

i agree with this action, if the coach can tell anything during the game, theres no need to get an IGL. this wont go to, they must keep coach to talk in warmup and timeouts.

This might be a controversial opinion, but coaches should ABSOLUTELY act as this "sixth player" we're all apparently so scared of. As much as football and other sports have captains that sorta lead on the pitch, the coaches are still leading in terms of strategies and adapting etc.
