Wtf happened? I don't recall anyone ever cheating back in the Quake and UT days. Even when I was heavily into CS it was rare - at least the servers I frequented. Then again I generally always chose to play on heavily moderated servers - usually run by a good clan - and it became something of a community where most everyone knew each other. Now? It just seems like you have to cheat to "compete".
Are there really that many douchebags playing these games and cheating? Are they doing it just to be dicks or is this something that's only happened more recently with millennials and their sense of entitlement. I imagine most people cheating don't want to get caught but want people to think they're some wicked awesome player. That maybe they'll make it to the pros and make big money. Yeah, guess they're not really thinking that through, are they?
And these guys can't figure out a better way to end cheating in their game? Simply treating the symptoms and not the cause clearly isn't working.

Bleh, I'd love to play Morrowind again, but there's this thing I need more called sleep.

Can't be a peaceful miner and manufacturer anymore without your Hulk getting shot up by some douchebag. Trust me, this happened to me twice last week, which is why I will no longer play that game.
That same quote could also describe Eve Online, and yet that game absolutely has "winners" and "losers."

The loud objection will come when they drop Win7. Assuming Microsoft doesn't change their course again and release another reasonable OS (it would be nice, but I'm not holding my breath).
