Regarding the current number of bans from Akros during the open qualifiers on the Challengermode platform. Since the beginning of the qualifiers, we have permanently blocked more than 30 cheaters from all events where our protection system will be used.

Almost all cheats detected by our team operate at the kernel level or are hardware-based. We continue to issue bans using automated analysis and review cases as they come in. Our experience during this event has taught us one very important thing: cheating in CS2 has completely spiraled out of control.

The open qualifiers for the RMR tournaments to the PGL CS2 Major Copenhagen 2024 are taking place in eight regions from January 8 to 17. Everywhere except China, the Challengermode platform is used for hosting, which uses Akros anti-cheat.
