Many CS2 players, who tried the new game on Windows 7, has seen their false VAC bans reversed
The CS2 launch was marred by a rather strange issue that now appears to be resolved. Windows 7 users experienced an unexplained decrease in their trust factor, which subsequently triggered bans through Valve Anti-Cheat within the game. Thankfully, the latest developments indicate that these players who were unfairly banned are now receiving the justice they deserve.

As news about these unjust bans started circulating on forums dedicated to the game, such as r/GlobalOffensive, they were met with a considerable amount of skepticism within the community.
Sometimes there are false positives, Valve ban & unban when necessary. Apparently, there are many false positives with "Windows 7" which had to be corrected with the last wave. ✅https://t.co/9ZdK36vh1R

Windows 7 CS2 Fans Bans Reversed
Counter-Strike had faced a persistent issue with cheating, especially in the case of Global Offensive, and it seemed that this problem had carried over to CS2. Given the widespread prevalence of cheating in the franchise, a significant number of users initially found it hard to believe that these players had been wrongly banned.
Countless ban waves had been deployed in the past, attempting to weed out the cheaters who consistently found ways to evade detection. This ongoing battle between cheaters and developers had created an atmosphere of suspicion, making it challenging to readily accept claims of innocence.
Amidst this sea of skepticism, however, there appeared to be a glimmer of hope. It became evident that Valve, the developer behind the Counter-Strike franchise, was intensifying its efforts to combat the cheating issue. Ban waves were unleashed with a newfound vigor, resulting in the expulsion of many dishonest players from the CS2 player base.
Valve's dedication to maintaining a fair and competitive gaming environment was apparent, and their actions spoke louder than words.
Beyond the issue of cheating, the CS2 launch has been marred by a series of complaints from players who have lamented the loss of various features they enjoyed in Global Offensive. These grievances encompass a range of aspects, including the absence of Valve-official retake servers, popular console commands like the “net_graph 1”, and the omission of workshop maps.
Additionally, CS2 has been plagued by a slew of bugs and performance issues. Some players have reported that the game does not feel as smooth as its predecessor, CS:GO, particularly in terms of hit registration and movement. These technical hiccups have detracted from the overall gaming experience and have left players hoping for improvements in future updates.
