yes
Yes, VAC bans are permanent for the game and the account of offense.

Consolation: They are kind enough not to disable your friend's whole steam account, which is even worse than VAC bans :D

Please, they are not doing that out of kindness. I can garuntee you that Valve would have only a fraction of it's current user base if they nuked accounts entirely for cheating once. Whether or not you're a cheater, noone would want to risk hundreds of dollars on such a draconian system.

peoples accounts get hijacked than VAC banned.
whatever you think of that it would not be fair to ban accounts.

edit:
Here is someone who was banned but isn't any more

http://steamcommunity.com/id/LolipopGT

why does he have a VAC ban on the profile?

Yes thats nice

what game is he banned in and can he join a VAC secured server in that.
if you can proof that we believe he is unbanned.
spoof Feb 4, 2014 @ 2:28am 
he could be banned in MW2 than you can play tf2 just fine on secure servers.
and if he is banned in tf2 he can play insecure servers.

You can't play on vac secure servers anymore

You could just not risk the 100s of dollars by not using cheats... your logic is so flawed. All bans should be for the entire account, and permanent.
My logic would be flawed if it weren't for the fact that false or 'unfair' bans have occured; accounts get hijacked and some games ban for the most harmless of cosmetic modding. If I knew my account could get nuked because someone hacked my account and used it to cheat before I get it back, I would buy from someone else, or pirate. (Edit: and no, telling someone "your account is your own responsibility" if they get it hacked/nuked is NOT good enough and will probably earn you a punch in the face as well) And that's before we get into the legal ramifications (I can garuntee you destroying an account with hundreds of games in it would not fly in the EU).

OP, your "friend" is not banned for ever, loads of hackers get unbanned. Valve barely gives a♥♥♥♥♥♥ Why do you think you found it so easy to hack as well as all the other stunted♥♥♥♥♥♥♥like yourself.

Please stop spreading false information. Unbanned accounts are about 0.006% of the total. The cheaters probably just latch onto the Steam deals that sell games for the price of a candy bar.

Also, judging by your other post, it would seem that you believe that VAC bans are global. They are not.

Bans are PER GAME except in the case of Source Engine games. Those two sets will ban you from every game using the same engine if you get a VAC on one of them. So just because your friend has a VAC and is still banned does not necessarily mean he's VAC banned from TF2. It's definitely not any sort of proof that bans aren't permanent.
