Lol

I just got steam banned for a cheating infraction. Which to me is not a big problem as I don't play anything on steam really at all anymore. I just thought it was a bit funny that I have honestly not even played a game on steam since around June of last year (not joking). I know that for a fact because August 1st is when I bought WoW and since then never even touched my steam, it's just always booted up with my computer and I was to lazy to stop it because I don't care. I just thought it was funny they banned me for "a cheating infraction" when I don't even have CS, CS:S, or HL2 installed (0nly steam, I got it, then forgot to even bother reinstalling anything after I reformatted just around a week after August 1st).

    Email them and tell them that you don't even have those games installed. What game did they ban you from?

    If you know these forums you know I have cheated and those accounts have already been banned. This account that just got the banhammer today I legitly NEVER cheated, downloaded a cheat, or installed a cheat on my computer. I didn't feel like paying more money for steam games so I called it quits in myg0t.

    So yeah, never even cheated.

    How long ago were those other accounts banned? They can usually check for multiple accounts by IP/email tracking.

    Its impossible to unban an account even if they wanted to, the way the steam system is set up to not lose the lists of cheaters in case of a security breach or server crash.

    It's not impossible to unban the admins do it for you if you have cheated, etc. There will be a timelimit until you can play again, usually this is about a year or so. For CS 1.6 it is. My friend has got banned lots of times for cheating, and on same account. xD

    I was banned back in 05 on my other accounts (2). I got the current one that was just banned about a month after July 05, and then played up until End of June 06 haven't touched it really since.

    Also they don't care if you buy another account. It gives them money. Same reason why if Blizzard perma bans your WoW account they will not ban any other new accounts you make or if you have more then 1. The reasons being there may be more then one person in the home that plays, and IP banning would fuck themselves over. If they banned all accounts in the household they would fuck themselves over again. And if they banned you twice you can probably sue them (I don't know why you'd bother sueing over like 20 bucks but there are crazy people) for banning an account you had ownership over that did not violate any TOS.

    It's impossible to be unbanned from a vac2 ban, because its all systematic, no-one touches the list of "ban-ies", and they only touch the actually system to update it. Admins don't touch the original VAC ban list either, if it takes a year to get unbanned, then thats systematic too. So it is impossible to be unbanned by the VAC systems unless you've passed the time limit on the original VAC system.

    Why don't they touch them it makes me wonder. Why make something you can't go in and fix if it fucks up?

    Well, I was probably over exadurating (spelling?), but they never do touch it, because they say it is always right.

    Yea, according to Valve, they are always right. Even when they cause so many problems.

    Nearly everyone here has stated something wrong. The VAC system has only flawed twice, and Valve quickly corrected the mistakes. I suggest you read this, because it IS possible to get unbanned, but you'll have to really force it through. I can proudly say I have never used a hack, but you windows95, you say you did cheat, so I must say, I'm glad you got banned.

    Did some people here forget how to read? I havent used a hack since like 2005 guys. And it was on a DIFFERENT ACCOUNT. On a different IP even.

    I am just saying I thought it was funny I got banned when I don't have any games installed and haven't played in almost a year. I don't particularly care even really. Just letting you all know VAC has a lot of wtfs

    ppl like this piss me off. Its no fun to hack, and its even less fun to play with a hacker. And to top it off, they're not really "hackers". Just Cheaters.

    Did you ever hack on that computer with a steam game with any steam account. I wouldn't doubt if they did what Sgt said, search for multiple IP's/Emails.

    Haha go windows, well done, but you must have done something to piss them off, Valve don't usually get that stuff wrong, you probably downloaded something that had a .dll file in it for css, they ban you for that.
