Why is there not mobile phone number authentication and hardware banning on every multiplayer game. That should be bare minimum for anti cheat.
Because money.
Are they effective? Are hardware bans not spoofable? It's ultimately still just information being sent over the Internet, so I'd imagine there's the same arms race as for cheats and DRM. And it also leaves the Asian net cafe gaming population in the cold.

For mobile phone authentication, I think anyone can get a free VOIP number. If you disallow those (like Microsoft does) then that cuts people out.

But I don't know, I generally don't play online games. Do the top games usually do both of these, and it works fine?

You can win the battle, but you will never win the war.
