A CS:GO skins account worth $5 million was permanently banned from Steam
A CS:GO account worth approximately $5 million in skins was banned from Steam, making it one of the costliest in the world. On September 15th, the player known as “Seacat” was banned from all games, thereby cutting off their access to the service and possibly making their skins unusable forever.
Rare CS:GO skins can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars. A lot of them belonged to user “Seacat,” whose public stock of unique and special cosmetics was valued at over $4.7 million.
But as of September 15th, the game restriction could mean those skins are gone for good.
Twitter user “Exerpas” shared the news about Seacat’s ban on the skin community, and even displayed some of their large stock. One of these StatTrak M4A4 Howls has the best wear rating in the world at 0.0033, and all four of them have iBuyPower holo stickers.
They have a large supply of Katowice 2014 Major stickers and a few souvenir Dragon Lores, all of which are in mint condition. Additionally, there are knives, which have a wide variety of sapphire, ruby, and jade skins for virtually every knife in CS:GO.
According to ‘GaryTCxD,’ another skin care fanatic, the account was last properly valued in July at $4,693,106.86.
Valve claims that a ban on their Steam platform is equivalent to a ban from the VAC.
The website notes, “The effects of the game ban are determined by the developer, and must be consistent with a VAC ban,” meaning that features like online play and item trading are disabled for those who receive a ban.
This suspension, however, could be due to something other than cheating. It is possible that players collectively reported Seacat’s account for being toxic. The nearly $5 million in stock will probably never be released again if the prohibition is not overturned.
