Tournament operator BLAST notes that at the upcoming BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2021, teams will be allowed to communicate with coaches.
On January 28th, Valve released a new rulebook that prohibits coaches from sharing a room with teams during RMR tournament matches. Since there were many moments with trainer bugs or streamsniping.
BLAST stated that they have enough mechanisms to keep track of all the trainers' actions when they are on the server and in the room. This ensures the fairness of the competition. BLAST Prime Commissioner Andrew Haworth spoke about this.
