When we announced the Rio Major, we were excited to bring a CS:GO Major to one of Counter-Strike’s most passionate fan bases. At the time, we couldn’t have imagined the global challenges that have limited live events throughout 2020.
We’re not going to ask players and fans to risk their health in order to attend a Major while the pandemic still poses a threat to travelers. Therefore, we have made the painful decision to cancel the November Major.
So, what’s the plan? First, we’re going to hold off on scheduling Majors until, at a minimum, Regional Major Ranking (RMR) LAN events are safe to hold around the world. Until then, we expect to continue to hold online RMR events to keep track of the best teams in each region.
Recently we’ve been made aware that several coaches of professional CS:GO teams exploited a bug in the game in order to gain an advantage over their opponents. It is unfortunate and frustrating that we did not respond to this bug sooner. But bugs are the reality of software—and until they are resolved, we need to be able to trust players and coaches.
We won’t spend much time here reiterating our stance on the importance of integrity in CS:GO matches. At a minimum, we expect that players and coaches will play by the rules, and immediately pause the match and alert tournament admins if they know of an issue that may give them (or an opponent) an unfair advantage.
Any teams that were disqualified for exploiting this bug during an RMR event will have their RMR points reset.
As for taking action against individual coaches, we’re going to wait until we get a complete picture of the extent of the bug abuse and the punishments handed down by third parties. Regardless of those penalties, mid-match coaching will always be a tempting opportunity for some teams to violate the integrity of the match. So we may also consider limitations to coaching.
We’re looking forward to getting LAN events started again, and hope that we can all find a safe way to do it soon.

— O CS:GO exibirá um erro caso seja iniciado fora do Steam.
— Correção de caso em que jogadores no modo confiável enfrentavam problemas com a taxa de quadros do jogo, causado por certos aplicativos de terceiros.
Hoje, estamos lançando algumas alterações no CS:GO que são parte do nosso constante combate contra trapaças.
Agora, o CS:GO restringe significantemente os tipos de programas e arquivos que podem interagir com o jogo.
Por padrão, jogadores iniciarão o CS:GO no modo confiável, que bloqueia a interação de arquivos de terceiros com o jogo.
Caso deseje jogar usando softwares de terceiros que interajam com o CS:GO, use a opção de inicialização “-untrusted”. Observe que, neste caso, o seu grau de integridade pode ser afetado negativamente.
