Vac ban error ?
In my profil it says i have a vac ban...i havent used cheats or hacks...
Also the vac ban doesnt affect me.I mean i propably got vac ban from csgo
But i can still play competitive or join servers...
Why it says i have vac ban on the first place ?
And dont even consider asking if i have hacked or something similar.

It means you cheated

You can check which game you're VAC banned from in the Steam->Settings-> VAC section

VAC bans, save for some exceptions, on a per-game basis. You have a ban on a game and can play other games just fine.

No, you only get banned for hosting a hacked lobby, not joining one.

Whoever told you you could get banned for joining hacked lobbies lied.

no it is not possible
you only get banned if you hosted a hacked lobby (which is then requires a 3rd party software as console enabler)

Under Steam client settings, ''VAC status" it will tell you what game(s) your banned in.

pretty much what the odds and reality tells us

OP when you are able to search and download and install cheats, you should have enough brain capacity to read the " FIRST PINNED THREAD" in the VAC Forum,it should be easy to understand, atleast i really hope so.

Nothing there that we haven't seen a few thousand times before, no. Support will only confirm the ban was legit, or remove it. They will not tell you what triggered it. Though there have been very few false bans, all were corrected in short order. In some cases, compensation was offered as it did affect several thousand people for several days...

Bottom line is, Valve watches VAC very closely just to prevent false bans.

You will not receive any further details, all support will do is check the validity of the ban. If it is valid they will simply inform you of that fact and in the extremely unlikely event that it is not valid they will remove it but that is very rare.

Must I remind you of the rules here? It *may* not have been him that got the account banned. there is no reason to act like this to people. VAC has the final say.

Yes, Vac do try to make a approch to do banning wisely.
