The former Heroic coach is accused of exploiting bugs during a match in 2018

Major-bound peacemaker implicated in coach bug exploit

Imperial will face scrutiny in the coming days as their coach is reportedly named as one of several individuals that abused exploits to gain an unfair advantage.

For months, the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has teased that there are several additional coaches that are known to have abused exploits within CS:GO to give their team an unfair advantage during competitive play. A report in March from Dexerto indicated that there were 52 coaches that could receive sanctions due to the abuse. The investigation and announcement has been delayed as ESIC continues to deliberate potential penalties for the suspected coaches.

In a report today, Jaxon reported that Imperial head coach Luis "peacemaker" Tadeu was one of the coaches. He is being suspected of using the coaching bug in 2018 during a match against "Mans Not Hot", a mix team of European players that would later join European organization Imperial, which has no relation to peacemaker's current employers. In a video released by Jaxon, it shows that the coach of Heroic was using a "no-clip" mode. This allowed the coach to move freely throughout the map, which is a different exploit from the previous scandal which forced coaches into a stagnant position on the map. The video below is courtesy of Jaxon.

peacemaker is seen moving throughout the map in the second round of Map 2, Inferno. With Heroic on the T-side, peacemaker follows CT players into apartments where they are quickly dispatched by his own players. After the bomb is planted and the round is over, the coach disconnects from the server and the clip ends.

At this point you guys could make an article saying who is NOT guilty and it would be news, I swear at this point I just assume every coach was using bug

I am a little confused with all of this.. are these bugs patched? Are there still concerns about this stuff happening? Are these 52 potential cases on top of the earlier reported ones? Is this bug easily replicated in any server?

I mean if it's potentially this big of an issue on the pro scene couldn't the lower scene be even worse? Almost 0% chance of any of them being caught.
