Title: Cheaters Justice
Post by: Ubercat on December 26, 2020, 06:05:16 AM
I laughed so hard that my stomach hurt. I don't think I've done that since I was a kid.

             I'm not a FPS player but that was pretty funny.
What benefit did the cheaters think they were getting from the software they downloaded and did it deliver that? Otherwise wouldn't they just uninstall it? Perhaps I am over thinking it and it really was bad but caused them to waste a few hours figuring that out and generate a lot of fun for us in the mean time.

Most hacks for CS:GO (and shooters in general) are either wallhacks (you can see other player's outlines through the walls) or aimbots (automatically get headshots on players).  I'm not sure how the software in question was advertised but you're likely right that it didn't accomplish more than wasting the hackers' time and generating fun for us.  Though I like to think that fake cheating software is also designed to trigger Valve's anti-cheat system (VAC) to get the cheaters permabanned.  Too bad the game is free now so they can just make another account and keep hacking.   :uglystupid2:

My sense is that these were designed to happen just often enough to make them annoying and counterproductive, but not always to result in insta-failure.

Very cool concept.  The only game I play where I come into contact with cheaters is Battlefield V.  Wish he made something for that game.
