Recently, waves of VAC ban have coourred all over the world.
We already know what causes VAC bans in CS: GO. It turns out that this is about one of Valve’s new security features, i.e. the trusted mode. This one is supposed to detect potential threats in various programs and simply ban without any warning.
Sounds familiar? Of course. Some time ago, Valorant players had the same experience when their drivers, desktop recording software etc. were blocked. It’s just that it ended with a warning there.
Valve is simply issuing VAC bans
Some time ago we mentioned a high-profile scandal in which a large number of Asian professional players got bans. Today officially announced what was the reason.
It turns out that in this particular case it was the “E5” client. It is a matchmaking platform aimed at Asian players. This, however, confirms that previous ban waves could have been caused by similar problems with Trusted Mode, or rather external software.
Valve sees no fault here and points out that it is the E5 that should fix its client. When this happens and the ban stops, all ban will be lifted.
Exactly the same pattern took place during the bans a few months ago. Then tens of thousands of people were banned on one day, and unbanned the next. The reason was never given, but you can guess that the problem was similar.
