Valve Bans 40,000 Accounts After The Steam Summer Sale

You have to admit that this is pretty damn funny. I wonder if the timing was coincidental or planned? Who cares, it's still funny.

More than 40,000 disingenuous gamers lost access to their games, items -- and in some cases, their entire accounts -- last weekend after the Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) system flagged them for violations. No, that's not a typo, 40,411 players have been nicked by the company's robotic rule enforcer. That's nearly triple the previous banning record from 2016, which stood at a meager 15,227 players.
