Valve cracks down on griefers in CS:GO update
Valve has released a new update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which signifies an increased crack down in dealing with griefers on the ladder. If players get reported for griefing Valve will now sanction them faster with warning and even bans.
Release Notes for today are up. We’re shipping updates to griefing reports and how those are acted on, Dreams & Nightmare submissions may be tagged on the Workshop, and Pitstop and Mocha have received updates: https://t.co/qnFRvHYPEv

The change should make sure that players actively sabotaging their teams will get punished. Be it flashing team mates on purpose, buying Negevs to run down mid or other way of ruining the game for others.
While some players are worried that mass reporting could be abused the new algorithm by Valve is stated to only consider “unusually high” amount of reportings to act upon.
Hopefully this change leads to a better environment around CS:GO servers.
