In a recent blog post following feedback from Valve’s previous post titled “Keeping Things Competitive,” the CS:GO developer has decided to update the 2020 Majors rules.
“Keeping Things Competitive” spoke on the conflict of interest that might result from the relationships between teams, players, and organizers in CS:GO leagues. The response Valve received from teams and organizers favored the idea that there is no conflict of interest.
Although admitting that in some cases, there have been clear cases of conflict of interest, Valve has decided to focus on data collection and transparency to ensure that these conflicts can be appropriately evaluated.
The new addition to the rules states:
“Teams and players registering for the Majors will be required to publicly disclose their business relationships with other participants and/or the tournament organizer so that public conversations can be had about the value that leagues and other entanglements offer versus the risk that they pose. Failure to disclose any business with the TO or other participants will likely result in disqualification.”
Valve also mentioned that there are no plans to make any further additions to the 2020 Major Championships requirements.
