Coaches warned against cheering on players at Major

Teams were informed that enforcement of coach-player communication rules will be stricter during the Legends stage.

A Tweet from Danny "⁠zonic⁠" Sørensen made the rounds following the conclusion of the PGL Major Challengers Stage as the Astralis coach shared that he would not be able to cheer on the players starting tomorrow.

Teams were already informed that physical contact between coaches and players wasn't permitted at the event, but the latest update from the PGL admin team clarifies that shouting is also forbidden and that coaches that don't stay quiet will have to be removed from the tournament area.

HLTV.org confirmed that the directive is not coming from PGL, but Valve, who according to zonic want coaches to sit in the chair and only do something during tactical [timeouts]."

No more loud coach celebrations at the Major

Community reaction followed swiftly as coaches, players, and analysts criticized the newest instructions, with Katowice 2014 Major winner Wiktor "⁠TaZ⁠" Wojtas claiming that "emotions are what CS is all about". However, freelance Esports Referee Michal Slowinski speculated that the goal is most likely to maintain the integrity of the game and stop any sort of nefarious information sharing between the coach and the players, and a consequence of the coaching bug scandal in 2020.

While the news comes as a shock to many who are used to seeing coaches such as zonic, Nicholas "⁠guerri⁠" Nogueira, or Damien "⁠maLeK⁠" Marcel fist bump their players or loudly celebrate won rounds, Copenhagen Flames' Rasmus "⁠HooXi⁠" Nielsen noted that similar rules were in place from the start of the tournament.

A clip from BIG's game against MOUZ shows an awkward interaction between Johannes "⁠tabseN⁠" Wodarz and Nikola "⁠LEGIJA⁠" Ninić that implies that the German team was also aware of such rules, while Movistar Riders's Alejandro "⁠mopoz⁠" Fernández-Quejo Cano said that some coaches couldn't cheer from the first day of the PGL Stockholm Major.

The update from PGL Admin team reads as follows:

"Valve has instructed us to have stricter rules for coaches. NO touching the players except for timeout. NO shouting at all. Coaches can not even say "nice". They have to be quiet or we will have to tell coaches to leave the tournament area."

Sorry, but that does not make any sense. Valve have made tons of stupid no good rules, for as long as there has been CS and never been approachable when there was real problems. Like the coach bug. And if you somehow are right and valve is doing this in response to their bug, then you should just hate them even more, as they don't have the balls to deal with the stupid cheaters and then lash out in anger with the worse rule ever in counter strike.

If this rule is supposed to be some cheating prevention it is laughable the least.

I Agree the community as a whole has to protest against this, tbh i wouldnt mind if coaches were allowed to talk on the freeze time of every round, i just dont like the idea of them calling mid-round.

Well there is many sports, especially 1v1 sports where it is not allowed to yell anything from the coach bench unless timeouts or such. It is not as restrictive as this is in paper, but we will see how restrictive this in the end will be.

Refuse to play. Come together as a community with CSPPA and don’t join the servers. Valve obviously makes a ton of money off of majors so hit them in the pocket to keep the spirit of the game alive. Remove a coach if and when there is something suspect.

A better solution would be to remove coaches all together during matches. It is dumb to let them stay there but basically cant do anything. IGL role will be more precious then (like valve wants). LoL has the same rules and it's ok I guess. Coaches can still talk to the teams between maps. Valve, if you want to kill coaches do it well at least...

Sooner or later the valve itself will kill them all! believe me, we can't laugh without making a sound!

so basically the coach has now been made almost redundant.. let them shout let them cheer, let them have physical touch all these are ways that a coach can have a positive or negative influence on there team. retarded decision which i hope gets boycotted and all the coaches start screaming NICE and massaging there players for the whole round just to say F you to valve
2021-10-29 21:34
That’s so stupid lol. At a major event are the coaches not being watched by admins/referees/ whatever? Are people not monitoring their team speak at lan events? I’m confused as to how they could get away with anything by being able to cheer and fist bump

to be fair in most sports player coach communication is completely unrestricted, hypothetically coaches could shout encouragement that seems random but could be a signal to their igl to do a strat or focus on a site or to switch to their backup gameplan or switch their default etc etc so if ur gonna restrict coach player communication as dumb as this seems it makes sense...

is astralis, they probably bought some strats, so PGL is trying to avoid cheating with this.

They've seen all the scrutiny that PGL has come under for their coverage of the major over the past few days and they decided to take some of the heat off them by implementing some utterly incomprehensibly stupid soulless rule like this and sharing in the flack PGL is receiving. Valve is a truly stand up business partner and friend, I am moved.

I don't like restriction as much as the next person but after a large group of coaches got caught cheating blatantly for years, I can't blame Valve for talking certain measures especially with the first Major in 2 years. Frankly, they need to earn back the trust from Valve. Valve relaxed the communication rules between coaches and players sufficiently in the past and they abused it. Now, Valve took it all back. So you can't say Valve is being a party pooper.

A coach can carry a hidden device(like moresecode shoes or some bluetooth hearing device) and can very well get realtime information from outside which can be conveyed to the players that will give them an unfair advantage. This is a great rule, anyone who hates this can go and cry since it's free :)
