Stop the Hacking Heavies
We've probably all seen this before. A Heavy with an aimbot, crits, sometimes bizarre noise and particle effects, and more speed than a Scout on a caffeine drip enters the server and ruins the game for everyone. This type of hacker always has a name-changing hack which copies the name of other people in the server, often leading to kicking and banning the wrong person.

We know that VAC probably catches these people soon enough but it seems that they still show up way more often than they should. If Valve has done the most they can in catching them, then the least Valve could do is simply make it so that your name does not update in game in real time. This would solve the confusion and innocent banning/kicking which results from the name-changing hack.

If you agree that something more should be done to stop this, then join this steam group. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/stopthehackingheavies Valve has shown that they listen to their customers in the past. Maybe they will again.

I'd rather "waste my time" than letting a good game like TF2 go to waste due to cheaters. They must actually be that terrible at this game to cheat in the first place.

lol, this guy just don't get it
This is a direct consequence of F2P game.
If working hack exists and new accout is free, hacker will always win.
Only way to fix is to fix the hack quickly (I'm sure valve is on it now) or having premium-only server.

lot of em aren't that smart, i've tracked a few, their accounts weren't f2p or new... don't give these people so much credit, you'd be surprised how stupid some of them are.

Nothing will be done to combat this, the hackers always find a way to cheat the system.

A simple fix would be a one name change per day rule. Natural Selection 2 is seeing a similar problem in troll commanders quickly switching names between games over and over. A steam wide one name change per day would probably help ALOT of games from scumbags like that.

That said, the F2P aspect does make hacking TF2 easy. Just create a new account and hack again.

Still, Valve seems to be doing the best it can. It bans them and new hacks come out.

You're better off playing on a server with Admins. At least Admins generally have the capacity to ban a player entirely from a server.
