Halloween mode enabled on PGL Major Antwerp 2022 maps – as Valve required

People watching PGL Major Antwerp 2022 have noticed that a "Halloween mode" is enabled on the servers of official matches. As it turned out, the festive atmosphere at the Major is a requirement of Valve.

Former ESL referee Michal Slowinki explained that the Valve's set of requirements for servers at the Major implies an "sv_holiday_mode" command in the convars set, which is responsible for adding holiday elements like scattered Halloween pumpkins and confetti shooting from weapons. The reason behind this decision of the company remains unknown.
