Valve Steps up its Game
Over the course of the Steam Holiday Sale, there have been hundreds if not thousands of amazing offers on a wide variety of games. One game in particular has been on sale more often than most, and of course that game is Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
With one of the larger Multiplayer focused FPS games on the market right now, and one having quite the pedigree, this attracted a lot of new players. Not all of these new players are what you would call "lawful", so hacking and cheating started to become more common.
Valve has recently upped its game when it comes to its Anti-Cheat Measures, which handed out a fair amount of bans using an "Untrustworthy" system. This system marks accounts as Untrustworthy and bans them from playing the game on official Valve servers for 365 days.
Whilst this improves the quality of the game experience, many people have been complaining that they have been unjustly banned from the game. Whether or not these complaints are true or not, has yet to be seen, however this is still a bit of salt on what is otherwise a solid move by Valve. The possibility of a slight hiccup is certainly better than the introduction of Hats, thats for sure.
