Home » Esports » FACEIT announces changes in the ban rule

The administrators of the FACEIT Pro League CS: GO will deal with the cheaters in a private manner. Players who use or have used banned programs will still remain under the microscope. Nonetheless, from now onwards each case will be unique. League participants believe that the context of incidents depends upon the circumstances. Though there are possibilities that some violators can get a second chance.

The head of FACEIT Circuit, Milos Nedelkovich discussed the changes in FPL. He talked not only about active bans but also about previous bans from VAC and FACEIT anti-cheat. When examining each individual incident, representatives of the platform will take into account:

  • The age of the player.
  • Where the ban took place (matchmaking or online tournament).
  • How many times the FPL caught the cheater and other circumstances.

For example, if a member of the league received a ban from VAC when he was a child, to have fun with friends in a normal match. Then this is will not be a serious case. But if the player participated in these activities as an adult, then he deserves to get punished.

Nedelkovich cited the example of the story of Robin robiin Sjogren and Alexander br0 Bra. The first one got a VAC-ban in 2013 for using cheats in another game. But Valve reviewed his incident and cleared him in 2018. The second is a 16-year-old player from Denmark, who competed well in the FPL. Unfortunately, he was not able to participate in Valve tournaments. Since he received a ban by VAC at the age of 12. The head of FPL revealed that all decisions depend on an individual basis. In short, they will announce the verdict after discussions with the players.

FACEIT Pro League (FPL) is a closed Ladder on the FACEIT platform for professional players. The players can access it by the invite from the organizer. Or if you are pro enough, then you can take the long path by competing through lower divisions. Monthly ladder participants play for $ 20 thousand each in Europe and North America.
