First ban wave in four months recorded in CS:GO

On January 14, CS:GO saw the first ban wave since last October. This is evidenced by the statistics from ConVars, which tracks 9.3 million player accounts.

Yesterday, ConVars recorded 1,704 game bans, nine times the daily average. That said, the number of accounts banned by Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) did not change significantly compared to the average.

It should be noted that the second half of 2022 saw several big ban waves. During this period, at least 40 thousand accounts fell under the mass-scale blocking.
