Valve updates RMR eligibility rules regarding VAC bans

The game developer has finally decided to review its policy regarding cheating cases.

Valve has announced that it has updated the guidelines for its events regarding the eligibility of players who have received VAC bans in CS:GO.

Moving forward, players who have been VAC banned will be allowed to compete at Valve-sponsored events if at least five years have passed since the ban came into effect. However, players who have received VAC bans after participating in a Valve-sponsored event, including qualifiers, will remain ineligible.

"Up until today, players were ineligible to participate in Valve-sponsored events if they had ever received a VAC-ban in CS:GO," Valve said. "These guidelines had not seen an update since the game was new and all CS:GO VAC bans were relatively recent. But VAC bans can now be more than 8 years old. So we’ve decided to update them."

The news comes as a major boost for players who have VAC bans dating back to the early days of CS:GO and have seen their careers hampered by what until now was a lifelong ban from Valve events. The most notorious example is Vinicius "⁠vsm⁠" Moreira, whose VAC ban dates back to 2013, when he was only 13 years old. Elias "⁠Jamppi⁠" Olkkonen recently left ENCE and decided to pursue a career in VALORANT after being unsuccessful in his attempts to overturn his ban, which also cost him a transfer to OG in 2019.

Valve noted that there are no plans to review the cases of players who are ineligible to participate in its events for other reasons (for example, match-fixing). "These remain unchanged," Valve added.

In pro matches cheating is worse but cheating in random mm as a 13 year old kid isn’t because you don’t play for money. Ofcourse match fixing is terrible also because you are playing for money and let the other team win for ez moneys.

Yeah it's TOTALLY okay to cheat, as long as you do it in MM or casual.. Yeah, TOTALLY OK................ Who cares that you're ruining the experience of the players who aren't cheating...

No, it's not OK, if a player gets caught cheating on MM/casual he will be banned and will have to wait 5 years before being eligible to play on Valve's tournaments again.
2021-04-16 07:08

and assuming you become a pro, which like less than 0.00001% of csgo players do, so cheating in mm is only bad for the enemies because you ruin their games
2021-04-16 08:42
I know. I was just going with what Nollegee was saying. It seemed as if the consensus was that cheating was okay, as long as it only happened in MM/casual. Which is obviously not okay.
2021-04-17 01:14
No, cheating is not totally OK and that's how Valve sees it also. The new VAC ban rule doesn't change this fact because ban in any level gives you a minimum of 5 years ban. And that's how it should be. However, this new change comes more in a line with common sense because it is a bit too harsh to ruin a CSGO career for kids doing something stupid at the age of 12 or 13. Anyway, those kids do get a punishment as ban of 5 years minimum. If you think of traditional sport then even a doping won't get you a life long ban from the first time you do it. Why should cheating in random MM give a life long ban, but not on doping crime?

The things that makes game random is very dumb to have in comp game no matter how much of a game changing they are where so much money is on the line in pro matches.

It's very likely that Jamppi's legal fight with them made them re-evaluate their VAC ban rules in regards to the pro scene. I don't think Valorant affected this change at all, since it doesn't affect regular people.

Exactly. It's still unforgivable that it took Valve this long to realize permanent bans in first offenses are stupid for these pros who are still very young. But at least they're walking in the right direction with this change and Jamppi still has a chance in the scene, if he decides to come back.

It basically means after someone starts playing CS:GO professionally it doesn't matter when the cheating happens. if you're playing at a level on which you reach valve sponsored qualifiers, you should not get vac banned for cheating.

Those aren't going to change. Valve has made it very clear that they want CSGO to be a 5v5 game. And unlike with this where almost the entire community disagreed with Valve whether 6 man roster should be allowed is controversial.

This is literally 5 years late, but .... finally. It doesn't make any sense for 14 y.o. kid who has no clue he can even compete later in his life to be banned for LIFE for childish stupidity. I actually like decision, that player who is already competitive and is cheating afterwards is punished harder, because he knows (or should know) that it is bad and how can that affect his - potential - career. I would debate that something like 2-3 years is more reasonable, but i see this as a reasonable start of the process.

Cheating also scams people. If you bet on one team to win and they lose because the enemy team had a cheater you've been scammed. Luckily KQLY isn't getting unbanned
2021-04-16 02:32
2 replies
yes you are scammed then but as I can see you obviously dont understand what you read If somebody was VAC banned AFTER he played Valve event then he has permanent ban. So there is no unban for pro players who scammed people from money by cheating. The unban is only for people who cheated before and never played valve event. So those people did not scam you by cheating on some random MM games right? Or they could play some amateur online league but those are not in betting offer and if yea then its your problem that you bet those kind of games. How Valve handled it is very very good. Its absolutely fair, kids who cheated on MM when 12 should not be punished for life, if you are old enough you know how stupid kids are,its an age where every year is a huge differenxe in thinking. But when somebody already played some event he MUST know how bad cheating is and what kind of consequences there are, so its absolutely correct to give then life ban. And matchfixing is a crime and ibp players can thank god they are not in jail

Such a shame that VAC banned players can participate after 5 years. That's 5 years of practicing the art of hiding your cheat. Once a cheater, always a cheater.

Not really, most players VAC banned were kids when they cheated and in matchmaking, completely different than cheating in actual tournaments

Yeah maybe but he has always preferred cs over valorant. I think he'll switch if he gets a good contract from csgo. It's a hard decision since his salary is 3x bigger in Liquid valorant than it was in Ence.

yeah thats true but the only reason they are still banned is because Valve wants to make an example of them, but look at AU, people still matchfix. And the IBP game was the last game in a season and did not change the rankings whether they won or lost. It mattered way less than a MDL playoff game.

What is this, american elite corporatism actually being sensible for once? Lifetime ban were always way too hard punishment compared to any other elite sport scenes. Even 5 years is pretty hard punishment (I had vouched for 4 years personally) but 5 years is WAY more sensible than lifetime ban.

I see you have not understood my point but I guess yes, ultimately it doesn't hurt anyone, if you still get triggered over people cheating you need to grow up And in no way is matchmaking ruined because of me, I never cheated and never will :)

if you understood I was saying you shouldn't have a career ruined by cheating in matchmaking, why did you imply I was a cheating apologist and thought cheating was normal when I never said that? and yes, you need to grow up if you let a video game affect you emotionally

Matchmaking is first ranked matchs for people so if you cheat in ranked match what will it be when you're pro that's my pov. Being affect emotionally when you're wasting time in a non winnable game is normal men . If you dont , you're liar or robot. But let it be seems like you're fan of this Kyojinn/KQLY player .

You like to assume a lot it seems :) If you can't win a match why should you be sad or angry, just reset mentally instead of tilting And thinking that the "once a cheater always a cheater" thing applies to a guy when he's 12 and just cheats for fun or with friends and also when he's pro is retarded, sorry

I don't think he is. KQLY got his VAC ban in 2014, but started his career way before that. Therefore I guess he had already participated a Valve tournament or a qualifier for such tournament *prior* his ban, therefore making his VAC ban not being lifted after 5 years.

2021-04-16 09:21
5 Year rule should not apply if you are older than 18 when you cheated. Kids in MM have not developed the ability to consider the consequences of their actions, adults should be held accountable. Then again, i think there should be a pop culture movement that finds and beats the shit out of cheaters, might be better solution actually.

If you ever cheated in CSGO or basically any VAC secured game (Team Fortress 2 etc) and were caught, you got a ban on your Steam account which doesn't get removed (99% of the times it doesn't, only when it's false positive which is really rare). Having a VAC van on your account previously meant you can't participate in a Valve sponsored tournament, like the Majors and their qualifiers. With this change now, if your ban was more than 5 years old (ban also mentions the time since it's been there on your steam profile), it won't stop you from playing Valve sponsored tournaments anymore. Read the cases of VSM and Jampi that article mentions and how it affects them.
