Alex McMeekin, known as “ALEX,” is a 25-year-old British CS:GO player who has been playing for Cloud9 since September 2020. Before that, he had been representing Team Vitality for a year.

Last year, it has been revealed that some of the coaches have been using an exploit that gives you an unfair advantage during the live matches, and ESIC gave a temporary ban for these coaches.

However, Valve released a new update two days ago and announced that they decided to remove all the coaching processes during the online matches on Valve-sponsored events alongside announcing the future of the ESIC banned coaches.

Following this decision, most of the community disagreed with Valve and claimed that this is not a great solution for the competitive Counter-Strike, and ALEX is also criticized Valve’s decision by sharing a new post on Twitter.

In the post, ALEX pointed out that this is a lazy solution from Valve and said that he is not a fan of these changes. Additionally, he mentioned that they could have found better solutions if they wanted to take a time and spoke with the tournament organizators.

Here is what ALEX said:

“Banning all coaches just seems like a lazy solution, in online tournaments it’s become pretty hard to do anything since there’s an admin on teamspeak recording, POV recordings, the anti-cheat monitors all of your pc, and some events even have the coach screen sharing, not a fan.

I’m sure if they’d taken time to speak to the main TO’s in our scene they could’ve found a better solution, that’s all I’m trying to say.”
