No competitive game escapes such a situation, and the studios do everything they can to ensure that it does not disrupt the player experience. Cheating is obviously a term used to describe a game that can quickly divert players from it. Steam's most recent technique has proved to be quite effective!
40,000 accounts have been banned thanks to an inventive technique in Dota 2.
Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Warzone, League of Legends, Starcraft II, and of course, Dota 2, the Steam game that was created and published by Valve. The competitive scene is supported by hundreds of thousands of players daily papers, which confront each other more or less happily.
Teams at Activision have chosen to utilize a variety of anti-cheat tools, keeping players on servers by depriving them of various features to gather as much data as possible on potential cheaters. In other cases, players who are displaying toxic behavior or cheating with more or less discretion are moved to dedicated servers where they can no longer harm others, without making any false positives.
Valve has indeed imagined a loop, the behavior of which was exposed following the deletion or suspension of the identified accounts. The answer is quite simple: in a recent, very minor client update, Valve has integrated a new data section, the lines of which can only be seen by cheat software.
A must-do battle against cheating
The fight against cheating is a real cat and mouse game. Cheers often have a head start, and it takes time to discover a new strategy to succeed.
Dota 2 is one of the world's top three most popular games on Steam, with an average of 402,000 players connected simultaneously in the previous 30 days, for a recent peak of over 680,000 players. The MOBA seems to be on the verge of breaking out.
