VAC-Banned CS2 Pro Ousted Mid-Game in Major Qualifier

Former Counter-Strike pro Joel “emilio” Mako, who was handed a VAC ban in 2014, made a bold attempt to join a CS2 Major Qualifier, only to face disappointment as he was abruptly kicked mid-game. 

The PGL Copenhagen Major open qualifiers has seen its fair share of controversies over the past few days, with Mako’s mid-game expulsion being the latest. 

The ex-CS:GO pro was streaming his Major Qualifier game in front of a live audience on Twitch when he, along with his entire team, was kicked from the game. 

This isn’t the first instance of Mako being removed from an ongoing game, as his previous VAC ban also occurred during a CS:GO tournament. Back then, emilio was playing for Team Property and was seemingly doing well in their 2014 Fragbite Masters game against HellRaisers when he received his VAC ban mid-game.

As a result, Team Property was disqualified from Fragbite Masters 2014 and emilio was banned from participating in their events.

On top of that, due to the nature of a VAC ban, emilio is permanently ineligible to qualify for any Valve-sanctioned event, as outlined in the Major rulebook.

In the aftermath of this incident, the CS2 community is perplexed, questioning how emilio managed to sneak into the Major qualifiers undetected in the first place.
