Valve plans to punish Team Fortress 2 cheaters

Valve plans to deliver a blow to those using external applications to earn items in Team Fortress 2. According to a recent posting, the studio will begin stripping items earned with the help of idling applications, but in the future, Valve plans to remove every single item from the cheater’s inventory. It’s a zero tolerance policy that should send a clear message.

“Over the next few days we'll be removing all TF2 items that were earned using external idling applications,” the posting reads. “We're going to adopt a zero tolerance policy for external applications used to manipulate the persistent item system. Due to us not having a policy in place prior to today, this time we're only removing the items earned through cheating the system. Going forward, if we find users using external applications, we'll remove all of their items.”

According to the post, only 4.5 percent of TF2 players cheat and will be effected by this move.

People not cheating the system -- like, 95 percent of the players -- are to receive a free item “soon” for playing the game legitimately. A simple, but awesome gesture for the community. Go, Valve!
