Valve To Take Action Against Team Fortress 2 Gamblers


In a blog post today on the Team Fortress 2 website, Valve announced they will begin blocking TF2 gambling accounts. The statement is short and direct.

In July of last year we outlined our position on gambling web sites, specifically noting that Valve has no business relationship with these sites. At that time we also began blocking many CSGO gambling accounts. You can view the original post here.

The news arrives just after ESPN broke down the $5 billion Counter-Strike: Global Offensive skin gambling industry. Which is not the kind of news Valve wants attached to them.

I wonder if Valve will curb skin gambling throughout this year. Looking forward to seeing ESPN's 2017 investigation.
