So, Blizzard just struck another strike with the Banhammer, and the reactions are delicious. Amidst legal 'threats', declarations of war, and a cringey speech about how buying coins on a hack-site will help protect you in the future, there's enough drama to go around; http://www.pcgamer.com/the-latest-overwatch-banwave-inspires-tears-threats-and-hilarity/

I wonder if these people realise how ridiculous they are.

Now you know why I generally don't play multiplayer games.

There's remarkably little in the way of cheating, from what I've experienced myself. Blizzard has been very efficient in making sure their games are clean of cheaters, and they probably have the best fair-play environment in the industry as a result.

Aye, the entire bloody Battle.net login system on this side of the Atlantic went down last night. Right as I was heading through the Dark Portal in Warlords of Draenor. Outrageous.

Dude, if you can't do the time, don't do  the crime. I hate that saying with all of my gut, but damn it's true.

I'm surprised there's still massive cheating happening in online games. Aren't most of the saved data stored online nowadays?

"Silberio"Dude, if you can't do the time, don't do  the crime. I hate that saying with all of my gut, but damn it's true. [/quote] Cheating in an online game is just plain stupid. Not only do you not gain anything, but the risks of getting caught these days are extreme. When Overwatch first came out, Blizzard was basically speed-shotting cheaters left and right. People got three bans in three days, with different configurations and stuff.

I'm glad to say I haven't encountered any obvious cheaters in my Overwatch games, so hell, if they want to continue giving Blizzard money and getting banned? Let 'em, I say. It just allows Blizzard to develop even greater content.

I'm not sure what you mean. Most of the cheating these days don't occur by editing clientside files and such. They mostly hook in to the game's memory, or in other ways reverse engineer the game to give them an advantage. Some cheats allow people to replace textures with transparent ones, for instance, to let them see through walls*

* Not sure if that's actually how it works, but it's my guess.

Most cheating is client side.  In The Division there was a client side cheat which would could make you shoot a thousand rounds a second.  This was due to a lot of the game being hosted client side however.

Oh, you still see aim bot snipers in Team Fortress 2.
