About five months ago, it has been revealed that some of the coaches have been using a bug that allows you to watch certain points of the map, and because of that, coaches such as Hunden, dead, and many more got suspended.

Yesterday, Valve released a new update for the CS:GO that features new major stickers, some map updates, and most importantly, their decisions on coaches in the esports scene. Unfortunately, they decided to suspend all coaching duties during the online matches.

Following the coach bug exploit, most people were expecting that Valve will bring huge restrictions into the game about the coaches, which is the idea that they didn’t since the beginning. From now, Valve stated that only players could stay in the room or the server during the Valve-sponsored online matches.

Furthermore, they announced the fate of the coaches who abused the exploit and said that any person who got over a six-month suspension from ESIC’s coach bug case, will be permanently banned from the major tournaments.

In the statement of ESIC, former Mousesports coach Allan “⁠Rejin⁠” Petersen is banned for 19.8 months with a 45% ban period reduction, and former ENCE coach Slaava “⁠Twista⁠” Räsänen is banned for 15.75 months with a 12.50% reduction. According to this, they are now permanently banned from Valve sponsored events.

Also, the director of ESIC, Stephan Hanna, has announced that there are still a number of ongoing appeals right now and their decision on ban-time could change in the future. If they reduce the bans under six months of Twista and Rejin, they won’t be permanently banned from Valve events.

Here is the official statement from Valve:

“During online matches only players are allowed in the room and on the server. Neither coaches nor any other team staff will be allowed in the room, on the server, or to otherwise communicate with the team during an online match.”
