CS:GO community servers provide valuable experiences to players and
communities, and are serving more players than ever before. Over the past
month, 3.1 mln unique players were observed playing on community servers and
this number keeps growing each month.

We're aware that some server operators are offering to their players false
inventories and/or profiles as a free or paid service via mods on their
servers. These mods inaccurately report the contents of a players' inventory
and/or matchmaking status, devaluing both and potentially creating a confusing
experience for players.

Therefore, we are asking server operators to remove any mods and plugins that
falsify the contents of a players' profile or inventory.

To be clear, the services that should not be offered on a community server
include (but are not limited to):

- Allowing players to claim temporary ownership of CS:GO items that are not in
their inventory (Weapon skins, knives, etc.).
- Providing a falsified competitive skill group and/or profile rank status or
scoreboard coin (e.g., Operation Challenge Coins).
- Interfering with systems that allow players to correctly access their own
CS:GO inventories, items, or profile.

If your server provides any of the above services then we request that you
disable them. If for some reason you are unable or unsure of whether a
particular plugin should be removed, feel free to contact us.

We will continue to monitor the players experience on community servers, and
may reevaluate if further actions need to be taken to ensure that server
operators comply with the request above.

Thanks,
The CS:GO Team

From comments: Valve will blacklist servers with "banned" plugins so people wont find the servers.

TF2 all over again.
