Any ban should originate from SteamID based checks, would also eliminate all pirates from playing.
Yup, they'd need to get a new Steam a/c and re-buy the game.Of course you could email and apologise for your sins and ask for forgiveness, but a warning saying something like 3 cheats results in a ban. This ban may be revoked after x days if you explain actions etc, a further 3 cheats after removal of a ban results in life time ban.Or something to that effect.
well if your using a roommates/ friends or spuses account too cheat you just fail out life
Speaking of cheaters... http://www.audio-surf.com/song.php#845 imo this would be the three offences to warrant a ban.
3 cheats? That's gracious.I reckon 2 or out. 1's a bit too risky, but 3 will get the cowardly bunch who thought cheating is fun to stay.People who stoop that low don't really deserve second chances. See doping in sports, too. One catch and you're gone for years. Second time round you're gone for good.
