ImageDiscussions about CS:S VAC bans getting transfered to the new version of the game have been seen on the Steam community forums lately. The responsible on that matter took the decision of giving CS:GO its own VAC ban list.

Just a few days before the release of the new version of the most popular first person shooter game of all times, new announcements concerning the bans matter were released.

At first, the main question about which anti-cheat system would be applied to the new Valve's game. Lately, since was known that the VAC system will be the chosen for CS:GO, new questions came to the users on the Steam community that planned to buy the game soon to be launched for sale.


VAC bans in other games will not be transfered to CS:GO

As we can see on recent forum, an user states that he has been VAC banned on Counter-strike: Source roughly a year ago, and that his ban has been transfered to the CS:GO beta.

The Valve Anti Cheat support information states that if a player gets a VAC ban on one of the games listed below, would carry as consequence a ban on the other games as well.

Counter-Strike: Source
Half-Life 2: Deathmatch,
Day of Defeat: Source,
Team Fortress 2
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

One of the latest replies to the post, was written by an user that is associated with the Steam staff, who stated:
"After further review we have decided to remove the link between Source VAC bans and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The FAQ linked by heffebaycay has been updated to reflect this change.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive is now a unique ban and bans in other games will not affect your ability to join VAC secure games in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive."

After this statement, we now know that any user with VAC bans in one of the top four games listed previously will not suffer the ban on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, neither on the beta stage nor the complete game.
