DuckBullet, MrCool, BeastofLegends and KingShark were all being played by one person (!). The player has agreed to follow site rules from now on, and is on a final warning. No games affected. Duckbullet account remains, the others have been disabled.

Why are you so generous in allowing cheaters to stay? Cheaters cheat. They will find a better way to do it.

That's a fair question. I have to admit my own response would always be to ban any cheats, but wiser heads than man have counselled a nore balanced approach. The reason I am prepared to follow this approach is in the results. Basically, although we DO ban some players on the first offence, for those we decide to let stay the vast majority do not cheat any more. Often someone may try to cheat in one or perhaps two games and then once they are caught they realize they aren't going to get away with it and they stop. The result is we keep one more player in the hobby and on siite.

I understand your concern about finding other ways to cheat, but frankly with the new AI anti-cheating software we have, it is pretty hard. And of course as soon as someone crosses the line again, they are gone.
