Fall Guys Cheater Island™

A tweet from Mediatonic tells the tale of Cheater Island, which is where they sent suspected Fall Guys cheaters before they came up with a plan to add the cheat detection used in Fortnite (thanks VG247). Here's a bit of the lengthy story, which is illustrated by a couple of videos:
I've got lots of spicy content for you this week - The Dev team have been super busy on the new update

For now...

BUCKLE UP

Let me tell you a wild story

It's called

The RISE and FALL of Cheater Island

Tagging @Netflix incase they want to make a film or series out of it

At launch, we had some of our own cheat detection built into the game

We weren't banning anyone at this point, just gathering data carefully

We wanted to be 100% sure that our cheat detection would only catch people who were legitimately cheating

No false flags!

After we confirmed that it was working - We secretly launched

Fall Guys Cheater Island™

It was a magical place where cheaters could happily compete against themselves for the Cheater's Crown*

*Literally just a normal crown but tainted with a hollow feeling of guilt and regret

I don't play the game, and don't plan to, so, I have no dog in the race here, but, why does a cute press release in character get everyone to completely ignore that Fall Guys is implementing an anti-cheat with Ring 0 privilege?

It's not just because people like the game, because Doom Eternal got flayed alive for doing it, and people love that game. It can't be just because people don't like Denuvo, because half the people here have a hate-boner a mile wise for Epic/Fortnite/everything related, and should be vomiting a mixture of battery acid and tears all over it right now, but, no battery acid tears.

Is it literally because it's cutesy with a story and haha.lol? I'm genuinely interested.

It's actually quite possible that it's because people don't know what the hell an Anti-Cheat With Ring 0 privilege is? Please clarify and Ill get back to you. I for one quite like the idea of NOT banning cheaters but instead forcing them to play with each other.

Click on the link if you want to know how this experience ended.

Spoiler: ppl start to upload videos of games full of cheaters. It makes the game looks bad. The developers shut down cheater island.

Still awesome of them to even attempt this.

I don't get how this is better than a permanent ban. There should be nothing for a cheater to do but delete the game.

Don't get me wrong, I hate cheaters and cheating. It's one of the reasons I don't play MP games with people I don't know. But consider:

1) Cheaters get to play the game on their terms without bothering the rest of us.

2) If you ban them they'll just go and get another copy of the game (why do you think PUBG is eternally in the top 10). This way cheaters are quarantined without being able reintroduce themselves into the gaming pool to bother the rest of us.
This. I'd rather let cheaters play the game they've bought and keep them occupied than have them buying another copying and impacting legitimate players.

Cheaters don't feel guilt and regret. They only care about winning by any means necessary.
