Just completed our first official ban wave - thanks to all of you who submitted reports and provided links to videos of folks being dirty jerkface cheaters!
While we sadly cannot prevent people from creating hacks, nor can we prevent players from buying said hacks, please note the following truths:
If you install and/or use a cheat program/trainer/overlay/editor/whatever - WE WILL FIND OUT.
Buying cheat programs from some shady character who claims that his program is undetectable is not a good idea. Of course they're going to say that - they want your money, and are more than happy to lie to you to get it.
If we ban you for cheating, don't bother arguing with us - we will ignore you. Please take your cheating butt elsewhere to feed your inner troll.
If you've recently started using a cheat program, keep in mind that we have a ZERO tolerance policy on cheating. Do not make yourself a target for the wrath of the Banhammer!
I may not always announce when ban waves are going out, but I wanted to talk about this one a bit to give folks a better understanding of how serious we are about keeping things fun and as exploit-free as possible. Contrary to what some hack authors might claim, we do indeed have anti-cheat software in place, and we will take you out with impunity if need be.
