Valve’s warning to CS:GO pro teams

CS:GO professional teams have received a warning from Valve about ownership dispute with players. Seven competitive teams have been warned including the giants like FaZe, MIBR, and Evil Geniuses. Valve responded with an email that spoke about the disputes found in declarations of interest. This potentially threatened the Major League tournament!

The developers said, “In order to participate in Majors, we require that players, teams, and tournament operators confirm that they have no existing conflicts of interest, or if they do, disclose them and work to resolve them.” Valve has requested that these instances be resolved before November,  2020, when ESL One: Rio is scheduled to take place. Failure to do so will result in teams being ineligible to attend the major. 

This new unyielding stand looks more appropriate. Most of these infringements have to do with ownership of shares and financial interests. We can assume that this no-tolerance policy by Valve is a way to make the tournament fair. 

While we are talking about resolution before  ESL One: Rio, let’s put a bit of light into this major; the ESL One Rio Major 2020, also known as ESL One Rio 2020 or Rio 2020, is a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major Championship. It will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from November 9 to November 22, 2020. It features a US$2,000,000 prize pool and twenty-four professional teams from around the world as with previous Majors. Twenty four teams around the world will qualify through regional qualifiers called the Road to Rio. It will be the seventh time ESL will be hosting a Major.

Valve has rightly taken a strict stand towards these disputes, as an event as big as this can’t be allowed to be disrupted by these issues!
