FACEIT representatives said that in matches on the platform, skins from the operation Shattered Web in CS: GO can no longer be used. Previously, many players have stated that these cosmetic items can give an unfair advantage on individual cards.
Prior to this, FACEIT forbade the use of skins in their competitions, including the Esports Championship Series Season 8. Other tournament operators – ESL, ESEA and DreamHack made the same decision. Companies noted that the association of professional players in CS: GO recommended abandoning the innovation.
The update with the operation Shattered Web was released on November 19. With him in CS: GO appeared skins for commandos and terrorists, which can be obtained for completing missions of the combat pass. Later, many players complained that the new models are different from the classic ones in size, and are also less distinguishable in some positions.
