As you know the access to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has become free-to-play with the launch of the battle royale mode. Apparently the move has increased the number of active players, but has also attracted a large amount of cheaters. This is evidenced by the very high number of ban imposed by Valve Anti-Cheat, or VAC, which only in December has hunted 609,375 players, according to data reported by SteamDB. This is a substantial increase compared to the 103,744 ban in November.
