What is the timing of the lowest ban on Counter Strike: GO? And the top ban? I got banned so many times, for kicking afk and flamer guys, and I dont know why.

  • Is this a VAC ban or a server ban?

  • Were time bans, I think that were VAC bans

    That isn't very clear. If they're VAC bans, they're permanent. If they're a server based ban, it's for as long as the server is set to have you banned, which is determined by the server admin.

The bans start at 30m and end at 7days. They have a cool down path that can be found in this question here.

Any action that gives you a ban will follow this pattern, it doesn't matter the reason for it they all count towards the same duration/cooldown flow. It truly sucks right now that so many people are getting banned due to kicking players who are afk or deranking on purposes. I highly recommend you simply report those people as being Griefers (this is an option when you report players now). Its not worth what the ban times can get to.
