I probably already know how this thread is gonna end up, but I am just curious to see if there are others that feel different about it.
I personally like and dislike vac bans. I understand being banned from a game for doing wrong actions, but vac seems to take it to far. If you really think about it, vac is like someone from game stop bursting into your house, and taking every single game that runs on that engine. They then would proceed to tattoo a vac ban symbol on your forehead for all to see with no way of getting rid of the status. Now being strict and all is great, but I feel there should be some small changes made. Like if someone was vac banned 10 years ago, I feel that status should no longer be shown on your profile. Also maybe allow them the chance to re buy the game and remove the status all together after a couple of years. I say this because people do change over the years. I just feel its just insane at times. Like it puts all games into one category. Also there is a lot of hate that is flamed at vac banned people. People will be afraid of adding them even if they were banned wrongly. It also can makes people harass some of the vac banned people.
Should someone be banned from a single player game because they where cheating in it?
I know this can happen because Black ops 2 single player has vac, and so do some other games. I really don’t see why you should be vac banned because of cheating in a single player game. Valve also just refuses to talk to you about it. Which I feel is somewhat of a great attitude to go about it. The main issue with that attitude though is that, they do not get the false cases. It basically forces people to re buy their whole account because they have one vac ban on their account, that was wrong.
When it is all said and done though, this method seems to please most of the crowd, and it also gives valve a basically endless supply of money. I have only heard of one instance where valve actually removed a vac ban, and that was because of some virus I think.
What do you guys feel about vac? This is more of a discussion I want to see if people behave differently than the common" YOU A PIECE OF ******* HACKER… BLAH BLAH BLAH".
