Major teams reach agreement not to use smoke cancel bug

All 16 teams competing in the PGL Major Antwerp Legends Stage have joined the gentlemen's agreement.

Early on Sunday morning in-game video footage of Ilya "⁠m0NESY⁠" Osipov in G2's matches against Imperial and Natus Vincere surfaced, in which the Russian AWPer used a special smoke that negated a part of the opposing team's smoke in Window on Mirage and allowed him to see through it from his side, but not from the other side.

The situation immediately sparked outrage among pro players, with many representatives from teams competing at the Major calling for this type of use of smokes — which is widely seen as an unintended mechanic and a bug — to be banned.

PGL had been approached by G2 during the RMR tournaments and allowed the smoke, and the organizers went on to put out a statement saying it is allowed during the Major, which resulted in teams coming together in Antwerp to discuss a gentlemen's agreement not to exploit the mechanic for the rest of the tournament.

HLTV.org, Dust2.us, and Dust2.com.br have reached out to all the Major teams and learned that all 16 of them have now come into the fold and agreed not to exploit the bug.

The Counter-Strike Professional Players' Association (CSPPA), who had Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk take it upon himself as one of the board members to gather votes, has confirmed that "all teams at the Major have agreed to not use the smoke exploit."

So its scumbaggy that they asked an admin before the RMR if they could use it, PGL allowed (and still will as long as its in the game) them to use it, and then G2 voted for this agreement
2022-05-18 17:29
1 reply
It was obviously not approved by valve that's why they patched it so quick. G2 knew it would be controversy around the smoke that's why they asked or else they would've just used it without asking. PGL is a bunch of noobs for even allowing it.

There are many unintentional mechanics that are used in the game all the time? Just because it's a bug or unintentional, doesn't mean it's automatically illegal Only gross misconduct or use of bugs is illegal, which PGL ruled this doesn't fall under

Certain boost locations, definitely. Bhopping originally started as an unintended mechanic of the Source engine. Crouch bug is an unintended mechanic. Using layered textured through smokes is an unintended mechanic

You're right, it's worse. A pro organization took advantage of incompetent admins and willingly condoned exploiting a bug that is clearly used as an advantage that cannot be countered as it exceeds beyond the bounds of the game mechanics.

Ofc, they made him agree, the same one that Tweeted "PGL allowed it" now agreeing not to use it. Other pro players had to come up and be like "Hey, you know that's cheating, and we won't use it, you shouldn't neither" Imagine how the media would react if he doesn't agree LOL

G2 asking PGL prior to tournament means they have knew it may be arguable, tournament organizers gave a green light - meaning use of smoke was not done in bad spirit. "they made him agree" sounds like you just hate on the kid as you don't really have ANY sources that confirm that. You also claim you know how conversation went on to agree on it.

It literally cancels the effect of the enemys smoke, ofc it's not supposed to be like this. It's a bug smoke, it's not supposed to work like that, just because PGL says it's allowed, surely valve wouldn't tolerate it. You will either see mirage get pulled out of map pool anyways for update or valve will fix this bug instantly after major

that's not even an argument here. If PGL allowed it - it means G2 did nothing wrong as legally they have it all covered. When new things are found it's always an argument if those should be accepted. Point of the argument is that G2 are being called cheaters, and monesy getting hate for doing nothing wrong.

????????????????????? You don't have any arguments to not call it cheating. Other players were unaware of it, believe or not other players are not looking for smoke bugs. Coaches got bans for using the coach bug once even if they didn't know what gas going on, the fact they stayed in the bug and not disconnected from the server gained them the ban and other people calling them cheaters. m0nesy who I'm assuming has been practicing the smoke since the RMR tournaments, didn't know that his one way smoke would be cancelling the existent smoke ? Lmao alright, I mean have you even watched the thing? First he gets smoked and then he does his smoke to cancel the enemy's smoke. IF YOU DONT THINK THATS CHEATING MY MAN DONT EVEN BOTHER WATCHING PRO TOURNAMENT IF YOU DONT KNOW WHATS GOING ON

Yes, pashabiceps was unaware of 99.9% of grenade lineups being used in today's CSGO - what's the point of that argument from you? Being unaware is not really a thing when you are discovering new things. It's about searching for an advantage. Cause it's hard to define what bug is. This may have been in game since day 1 and only learned recently. Them using in game mechanics legally, then having a debate on if it should be a thing sounds fine to me. You being irrationally mad at me for saying that it's overreacting to call 16yo a cheater for it is a sign of a very rational response from your hand. I sure will stop watching pro CS cause some toxic HLTV user told me to do so as I disagreed with your irrational response on topic XD dream on my dude Everything about this situation is fine, only toxic trolls are mad - no orgs, tournament organizers or ESIC are looking at any prosecution - only toxic no brain cancel culture slaves are mad

Just read the part of you saying the thing about being able to jump outside the smoke and play from the wall like, if that would have been the case he gets traded at least and would not have been a free round for G2, it's called REASONING man
2022-05-15 13:01
3 replies
It's called reasoning when you are making sense - point of me saying that you can stand on literally nothing outside the window shows that there are things in game that are on edge of being allowed or not. Cause you are not standing on anything, yet you are able to gain vertical advantage. Same for this smoke. Why is one cheating in your eyes and other one is fine? Cause you do get an advantage of being in a place where it looks like you cannot be there cause there is NOTHING to stand on.

when new things are learned about the game - it's usually ONE person that finds it, not everyone at the time. It's pretty dumb to share strats with others, checking it with organizers if it's fine sounds good to me. There are many things in game that are being used that are exploits, being able to stand on the other side of that smoke LITERALLY on nothing is not cheating? Cause you can stand on the wall outside the window on nothing, everyone uses that. So it just sounds like you hate on the kid without an actual proof of him doing it in bad spirit (they asked PGL so it cannot be in bad spirit).

I'm calling them for what they are. It was an asinine decision by a person who a, had no say in the matter, b, didn't represent the TO. The TO understood they'd fucked up and "allowed to use it" for damage control/saving face. You trying to defend the use of this bug shows how despicable you are. It's a cheat, it's now treated as a cheat and I don't understand what you're talking about.

The use of the bug was allowed by TOs, so it is ok to use it. Morality of the thing is different story, but teams are trying to win, so if they are ALLOWED to use a bug that gives them advantage, any team who would have figured something like that out would have used it.

Why would they punish anyone? It's PGL's tournament to chose whether this is legal or not. In fact, ESIC never punishes anyone. They give a suggestion to TO's and the TO's chose to punish. This was really just an admin decision that the pros don't agree with, which in my opinion is bullshit really. If I were a pro, I'd just say, "Fuck you, I'm going to use it. If you want to stop me, come and kill me in window after I use it."

But ESIC can't punish PGL for it, because of who they are and it's also not a breach of integrity. Should it be in the game? No. But if all teams are allowed to do it (I learned the smoke and how it works in 10 minutes and another 10 minutes to find a way to counter it relatively easily), it's not a breach of integrity or anything worthy of punishing PGL.

PGL didn't make a mistake, this is how problems should be solved, not from a fucking TO or centralized decision maker if problems arise. People should come together and solve it like this. Also now it's up to Valve who you really should blame to fix this shit.

The agreement will not take back the injustice that happened to the victims. Yeah Pgl allowed it but that doesn't make it right to use it. People who argue with that view just read "category imperative" I don't want cheaters in the game. Sadly that players need an agreement on that

2022-05-15 13:32
PGL clowns, if teams cant play a molotov in wall that is a game feature how this smoke cancel would be legal?
2022-05-15 13:39
Only good decision. G2 should have been wiser than make m0nesy use it but what can one do when they can't win otherwise.
2022-05-15 13:40
So their was a vote. Saying "all teams agree" would mean that no team voted for using it. I doubt that's the case. Personally, I wouldn't give a fuck about it and just use it. PGL allowed it, I'll use it. If you want to beat me, find a solution instead of bitching about it.

Can you link me to where I can find how it can be used in any circumstance? As it stands now, I'm personally of the opinion that it's just another one-way smoke and should be allowed in tournaments in general. Teams just need to learn how to play against it.

You just need to make the smoke explode before time above another smoke, i though first need a conner or box but uf you do it right with your head close to wall and usualy all smoke drop near a wall u can make the enemy smoke invisible so yes this bug = wall hack on enemy smoke. If its fair game definilty not and g2 know it and adm know it and alow it, its not one way, oneway u try to hide on smoke at take a pixel but after get 1 kill u will dead bcz enemy will know, this bug alow u wall hack on enemy smoke so u can hide and keep shotting while no one can see it.

But the opposing side still knows you've thrown a weird smoke to try and one-way your way through their smoke right? While maybe it's more akin to wallhack, you can definitely approach it the same as a one-way. People just need to learn how to counter it. At the beginning when one-way smokes were discovered, it was also deemed bullshit and people didn't know how to handle it, but now it's an integral part of the game.

Now you said something doesnt make sense, all one way u have the right pixel vision to take advantagr but u will jump on smoke to hide yourself and enemy wont have vision bcz smoke bloked it, this bug you dont need to take the pixel conner on smoke to one way, u can see though smoke 100% clear while enemy cant see you though smoke, if was wan balance this bug both teams should alow to see though smoke, and if this happen they can take off from shop the smoke bcz if evrryone can see though smoke dont need to have smoke in game, this bug = wall hack on smoke and thats a total abuse but if you think thats fair its ok, if someone tell me its alow to rape steal and kill and i wont penalize, and i would recieve a title and recognize as hero and champion on doing those shit i would do hahahahaha

That is definitely not the same. The monesy smoke completely removes the window smoke like its not even there where you can see clear as day. This is more like a 1 way because he still couldn't see that well but that should be fixed as well.

I think you’re wrong. It’s the same mechanics being exploited. Stacked smokes giving vision from within but from outside it looks like two smokes. Granted the D2 smokes were not stacked as well as the mirage smoke by Monesy.

That's how 1 ways work. You can't see ct but he has partial vision. The monesy smoke completely removed the smoke from his vision on that corner.

Rewatched the link above. There is no one way gap on D2. It’s an elimination of smoke from the inside perspective.

How is it not a 1 way gap? 1 ways you don't have full vision from a CT juat enough to see and test can't see. A 1 way it looks completely smoked from the outside.

Monesy. Low ethics individual that’s desperate. Alexib. Low ethics individual who as IGL didn’t explicitly prohibit the use of a clearly bugged smoke. Niko. Desperate for a major didn’t shut down grimy tactics that’ll tarnish an trophy he may get here. PGL. Allowed this crap in the RMR and thereby soiling the major. Trash org. Volvo. Should strip any future major from PGL based on questionable ethics. Should consider having matches replayed if you want Volvo money. CSPPA - seems to have brokered the gentleman’s agreement. Monesy isn’t a gentleman though as a gentleman understood it was cheap and low brow.

apparently PGL allowed the smoke to be used, monesy said on twitter they explicitly asked them in the RMR if they can use it and they said yeah its ok. So it wasnt even by chance by them using it but intentional part of the stratbook. PGL should not have allowed that. Volvo could fix their game in the first place, many other bugs and stuff in the game left to fix

Yeah but it depends how pgl was shown the bug. Was it shown with just throwing the smoke without the window smoke being there so it looks like a crappy 1 way or was it shown with the window smoke and shows them how it completely neutralize the window smoke. If it's the latter then pgl is a scummy org for allowing it.

Coach bug would occur unintentionally, some coachs were even AFK, monitors OFF. Had video evidence, audio evidence that thei did not even knew there was a bug = banned FOR LIFE. Use a portable wallhack 5 time on a major legends stage = Fair game. I suggest everyone to just spam this bug on MM and enjoy Free Wins.
2022-05-15 17:28
I don't get why PGL didn't ask Valve advice before allowing it to be used on the Major, I'm sure they'd say to don't do it almost instantly and there's Valve's people working with them for the Major. I won't blame the kid, but it was a massive overlook from G2. They have people with enough experience to know how community and most players would react to a bug abuse so powerful.
2022-05-15 17:32

Exactly. But I'm wondering how the smoke was shown to pgl. Monesy could've shown just the smoke itself and not it being used with an already existing window smoke.
2022-05-15 17:37
The fact this had to be voted on is ridiculous. As a player and an organization you should know the smoke is unfair to the basics of the game and should've never been used to begin with.
