  • Headshot! Steam VAC Bans 40000

After Steam's annual summer sale wrapped up this year, Valve's Anti-Cheat (VAC) system detected a 40,411 mischevious users, almost triple the previous all-time high which was 15,227 in October 2016. The previous record high took place on October 12, 2016, and saw only 15,227 accounts banned, a paltry number in comparison.

IShares MSCI Japan ETF Plans Semiannual Dividend of $0.35 (EWJ)
Investors look at the Volatility 12m to determine if a company has a low volatility percentage or not over the course of a year. A reading under 20 would indicate no trend, and a reading from 20-25 would suggest that there is no clear trend signal.


Dot Esports, who first noticed the bans, said that VAC detected 30,000 cheating accounts before 12pm ET on July 6 alone. Should they get caught and their account banned, they'd still have their main account elsewhere operating normally. The big swing took place on July 6-the Summer Sale ended on July 5-and is far and away the biggest single-day ban wave in the history of Steam, almost tripling the previous mark of 15,000 bans that was set on October 12, 2016. Cheaters have been an unrelenting force, especially during the summer, in Dota 2 and even more prominently in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive because of this cheap workaround. When a player receives a VAC ban, they're restricted from joining Valve servers, essentially rendering their skins useless. The VAN ban rate has since settled back to a more reasonable rate: On July 7, the day after the big spike, 954 VAC bans were handed out, while another 735 were delivered yesterday. An additional 4,972 were also banned after players reported the cheaters in-game.
