(opinion) Cheating in video games
Written by: NeoPGX - 14:58 Mar-18-2019

I just wanted to write this short blog on about my thoughts on cheating in multiplayer.

Just play fair. It is NOT too much to ask.

Real winners play and win their games fair and square. Only losers cheat.

If you cheat, you are a loser. Simple as that.

If you get banned for cheating in any game, I will NOT feel sorry for you.

Yup, cheating in multiplayer is absolutely unacceptable, hardware bans should be a staple for every game, but most companies are too greedy to skip on cheater whales that would buy their game again and again… :/


For singleplayer it doesn't matter and can be fun in many games once you've beaten them multiple times.


Also, cheaters can get others banned as well… which is sad.

Which reminds me, Apex legends does hardware bans.

Yup, well technically you can change hardware IDs, but how many people even know what's going on? From what I heard you make a new account and they ban you within minutes, so yeah.


Otherwise, Hardware ID, IPs, MAC addresses can all be changed, but again who will bother or even know.

Can't argue with this.


The worst thing about cheaters is that they then introduce an element of doubt into every game you play. Did you get killed fair and square, or did they have cheats on? Pretty much kills my enjoyment if I think there's cheating going on.

Absolutely agreed. In games I've spent a lot of time there is always doubt when someone kills me easily or does something of higher skill, just can't be certain, but statistics come to help, for example having more kills than your entire 12 man team should ring a bell when the server has low cap on kpm and kdr or there is a skill based matchmaking algorithm. But of course Smurfs exist and very good players exist, but as you said you can never be certain.
