Steam Banhammers More Than 40,000 People After its Summer Sale

Steam’s Summer Sale officially concluded last week, but Valve had one last surprise in store for cheaters who had hoped to score cheap replacements on games (or to build up a larger stockpile of titles while cheating in others). On July 6, Steam banned more than 40,000 people — 40,426 according to Steamdb.info — vastly exceeding its previous daily ban record.

People cheat...for meaningless titles? Proving yet again that just because someone grows up doesn't mean they actually grow up.

Valve laid waste to a bunch of them as well..

" Valve still has a ways to go before it’ll match its total monthly ban rate, however. In June 2016, the company banned 172,262 people via VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat). That works out to a bit more than 5,875 bans per day and remains a high water mark for the company by a substantial margin. Since the banhammer swung on July 6, Valve has maintained a more sedate pace, at 700 to 2,000 bans per day during the intervening period."
