What a great argument, straight out of grade 6. I think it’s a dumb idea and I’m usually one to piss on cheaters when they come crying for VAC unbans.
Permanently VAC banning an account for all VAC-using games for one single VAC infraction is a wildly disproportionate response. It’s overkill. And it does nothing but encourage throwaway alts even harder, because now, if you want to cheat, you’d be risking everything on your account.
That sort of thing could actually land Valve in legal trouble, and that’s likely one big reason why they don’t do it.
“You stole a candy bar? 25 years in prison with no parole! Good luck finding a job or going back to your old life when you get out! Shouldn’t have been tempted by your hunger over a dollar’s worth of chocolate, you’ve ruined your life now!”
Clearly, that is what all justice systems are really supposed to be like, but we’re just too pussy to destroy society for the sake of rules.
