It's much worse giving people something then take it away than not giving them anything in the first place. Why add coaches at all then?

This is why u dont talk to VALVE at majors anymore - its no point

Some even went as far as suggesting a player strike.

@csgo_dev Is this the time when all the teams Decline to play in Major, and any other tournament with such rules? Coach in CS is essential.

Time to put up or shut up pro players. Play no more matches of CS until valve reverses the rule. Force their TO partners to back you all.

The changes are certainly radical, and some teams will struggle with adapting much more than others. Na’Vi, in particular, will likely be hit by the changes. They've been using former pro Sergey “Starix” Ishchuk as their in-game leader from the coaching role, as well as just releasing former in-game leader Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko.","datePublished":"2016-08-17T18:18:37Z","dateModified":"2017-03-16T08:56:47Z","headline":"Valve changes coaching rules in CS:GO, and the pros aren't happy","mainEntityOfPage":"https://dotesports.com/undefined/valve-coaching-rules-csgo-3774","name":"Valve changes coaching rules in CS:GO, and the pros aren't happy"}

Valve changes coaching rules in CS:GO, and the pros aren't happy

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professionals are in uproar after Valve announced it will limit coaching contributions during tournament play

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professionals are in uproar after Valve announced it will limit coaching contributions during tournament play.

The new ruling, released earlier today, states that coaches will only be allowed to communicate with their players during half-time and tactical pauses. This is a large difference between the previous set up, which allowed coaches to talk throughout the entire game. Because of this, many teams used their coaches as in-game leaders, often calling strategies in real time as the round progressed. This will no longer be possible.

Players and experts have not taken too kindly to the change, with many coming out on social media to criticize the decision.

Some even went as far as suggesting a player strike.
