  • Custom game devs ban ppl on cheat lobbies

    So it seems devs that host their custom game modes, can ban people from their games HOSTED on valve servers becouse people play/test thier own cheat lobbies ticked with password?

    Is this actually what cheat lobby with password shouldnt be?
    Considering that you actually use cheat lobby with password on PURPOSE to play with console commands, it shouldnt affect you in any way if you play legitly certain game mode.

    Just in case, I did not use any cheats except well known and used console commands. Yet I was banned from 2 games modes, even though the letter had nothing to do with the first one.

    same for me, used private lobby with cheats enabled shouldn't be banned for that. Didn't even think the game would count because it was on cheat lobby.
