With this, It seems obvious that VAC Live is a new Valve anti-cheat system that will be in charge of canceling entire games in the event that it detects that someone is tampering with the competition through cheats.. Of course, at the moment there is no more information, so we do not know if it will be an exclusive feature of ranked games or if it is something that can be activated or deactivated in custom games. In fact, there is a possibility that it is not even available in the final version, so we will have to wait to finish clearing up doubts.
Those, what Valve has already confirmed is that in counter strike 2 there will be no second chances for cheatersso if you were permanently banned from CS:GO For cheating, you will not have access to the sequel.
