The Major of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gave the surprise with a rule that puts in a complicated situation to the coaches. Although a few days ago it was not mandatory, Danny Zonic Sørensen shared that there can no longer be contact with the players or screams during the games.
It is not a rule that emerged on October 29. It seems that it was already in the guidelines of the Major of Stockholm, but it was not reinforced in the first days of the Challengers phase. However, Valve asked not to ignore. What explains the curious interaction of Nikola Legija Ninić, Big coach, with Johannes Tabsen Wodarz.
The screenshot of Zonic Plags that No coach can have physical contact with players : Only in tactical pauses. In the same way, they can not scream things because otherwise they should leave the game room. What is translated in a few celebrations together after winning some rounds.
The coaches no longer have the same degree of interaction with their players who before. They can only talk along the four pauses that correspond to them. Added to this, no previous competence had incidents by physical contact or shout at celebrations, in fact, it is not a rule that is in the circuit of CS: Go. So some figures like Rémy XTQZZZ Quoniam from Team Vitality and Luis Peacemaker Tadeu de Complexity Gaming did not hesitate to launch criticism.
Next to the complaints, there were also comments that understand Valve s decision. Recently, CS: Go had a scandal due to a bug in the spectator mode. Several coaches abused him and received the corresponding sanction. Then, to avoid being able to lack respect for the competition, the interactions between technical body and players were limited.
At the time of publishing the note, the Major de Cs: Go will continue with the rest of your days without changes in your guidelines for coaches.
