Rampant cheating on Valve TF2 servers
Hi there,

I'm curious if anything is being done to address the cheating on the Valve TF2 servers. I've found that I will encounter a cheater at least every couple of hours. Cheats include aimbot, wall hacking, kritz bonus, and speed hack, among others. They can also change their names to match others on the server, which means that vote kicking is useless and the wrong person is kicked more often than not.

A lot of TF2 players are forced to play on Valve servers because we can't stand this new Pinion service that prevents us from setting up for up to 20 seconds at a time, especially those of us who have spent a decent chunk of money to support this game. But I find that I come across these hacks on Valve servers the majority of the time.

I've sent at least a half dozen reports to CS from within TF2 but I'm not sure if these are processed or they end up in a black hole somewhere.

Is this something that might be addressed or are we basically SOL?

What you're saying is true, that much I can tell.

Thing is that popular games such as TF2 will ALWAYS have their fair share of stupid cheaters. Nothing you can really do about it, I guess. Valve does care to some extent but they also know that there will always be a scriptkiddie using some hack.

i actually saw my first tf2 cheater recently(been playing since the WAR update, so thats really good)but 1 cheater is 1 too many. if you ever see a legit cheater let him kill you on purpose and when the kill cam zooms in on him press f7 to tag him in an abuse report

Getting a job to play tf2 would be nice, but getting a job to play on valve servers all day would be a little iffy.

just to let you know, when attempting to kick a name-changing cheater, try to match the picture next to the hackers name in the scores list (most often the standard question mark) with the duplicate name in the kick list. This makes kicking the ♥♥♥♥ers easy and fun! :D
