Yesterday, the latest episode of HLTV Confirmed on twitch.tv/hltvorg starred two very important guests. Legendary CS:GO player Wiktor “TaZ” Wojtas, and former ESL Referee Michal Slowinski were the guests as the hot topic was the recently discovered coaching bug exploit. Ever since the discovery was made, the impact was so huge that ESIC (Esports Integrity Commission) has initiated a large-scale investigation that covers 25,000 demos and several coaches were also suspended due to admitting previous use of this bug.

Slowinski is also a official contributor for this investigation. He was one of the biggest name in the discovery of this bug, and he also puts a serious effort to help ESIC progress through the content to be examined. In yesterday’s episode of HLTV Confirmed, he explained that the initially discovered instance of this coaching bug was fixed. The bad news is though, there may be various instances of this bug. He stated that the team is investigating the potential similar bugs before it becomes too late, and also mentioned that this may even be considered an advantage for the progress of investigation.

The most interesting point of these explanations was when he mentioned that one of these similar bugs was actually able to grant a spectator the third-person view of a player. It makes you able to stick on the player and rotate your camera around the model. Such an unbelieveable impact it would have, as we all can imagine. While they noticed these things in some of the demos, Slowinski also said that the activation sequence was different and probably random.

Possibility of more bugs surely worries everyone, but good news is that the process to check these bugs are totally same. Now entire CS:GO scene is focused on the results of this investigation to come, and the amount of surprises may be immense.
