CS:GO News: VAC Ban Wave Sets All-Time Record With 60k+ Accounts Banned
With titles like Half-Life, Portal and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Valve is one of the most successful developers operating in the video game industry. They have yet to release a title which fails to live up to the standards of the community. Now, as impressive as this is, there is a dark side as Valve is also notoriously known for their extremely laid back attitude when it comes to dealing with the demands of the community. Well, it seems they have finally heard the call, fixing one of the biggest issues.
Over the years, the entire community has been complaining about the usefulness of Valve’s anti-cheat engine, VAC. This was because, countless and we mean countless reports linking to in-game hacks and cheats have been spreading like wildfire, especially in the CS:GO community.
Furthermore, this is one the key reasons why many CS:GO players switched to softwares like Faceit and ESEA as their anti-cheat engines were far, far superior. But, it looks like things are about to change as Valve’s VAC ban wave just hit an all-time record of 60k+ accounts banned in a single day.
According to the Steamdb, Valve has just rolled out with one of its much-needed ban waves, hitting a total of 61,472 accounts in just a single day. Now, we understand that this will not completely fix the problem. But, it is a step in the right direction. Hopefully, if this continues, we will see CS:GO in a brand new light, bringing back a major section of its lost players.
And plus, with the developers looking to completely revamp the game with its upcoming Panorama UI Update, we think this is the start to something much, much greater. Finger crossed. Comment below and let us know what you think of the news regarding the latest VAC ban wave. Do you think the developers should continue on with the bans?
