    Valve Anti Cheat ban displayed after overwatch grief ban has expired

    Story:

    I got an overwatch ban for 1 month, of course for griefing. around 30 minutes ago, it expired. Now it displays a VAC Ban in game. i am 100% still able to play on vac secured servers...

    Steam Profile:

    No VAC Ban

    Steam Account settings
    it says im good standing

    In-game
    it displays a yellow vac ban error, but im not banned. i can still play on vac servers, just not MM or casual


    help?

    i verified game cache 3 times, restarted steam a bunch, just did a bunch of cleaning, restarted my computer, played on other accounts, still shows it.

    apparantly its a bug but i was looking for a fix, im not gonna wait 2-3 weeks for steam support to respond to me when i already waited a month
