Valve declares a mass ban
Valve also removed $2 million worth of in-game items as part of the account mass ban. Valve reportedly banned close to 40 Counter Strike: Global Offensive trade accounts. Because of this ban, $2 million worth of in-game items will be permanently removed from the game. This has led to many traders now apparently selling off their pending in-game assets.
The reports have also suggested that only those traders involved in gambling sites, especially, CS: GORoll, were the main reason for this, as Valve wanted to target them.
A gambling site, CSGOEmpire, has also published a list of CS: GO traders who were reportedly involved in a “cryptocurrency money laundering scheme”. Among them, reportedly CSGORoll has been accused of being at the helm of it.
Ever since the mass ban of the trader accounts was announced on 28th June 2023, the owner of CSGORoll has released a public statement on their official Twitter handle. In this statement, thCSGORoll denied all the allegations, stating that they have been facing attacks since May after they announced their partnership with the esports organisation G2. For those who don’t know, CSGORoll was banned in Australia soon after they announced their partnership. It was alleged that they breached of Australian gambling laws.
