MeGa Caught Hacking.

Date March 25, 2009

The ETF2L “anti-cheat” department has certainly been working overtime this week, another hacker has been caught.

Whilst we were reviewing the evidence, mega’s account got VAC2 banned and he pm’d an admin admitting to what he had been doing. Unforunately he created a new account, with the same name, same team, avatars and friends. Both have been banned.

[15:59] Mega“: i want to report my self for cheating
[15:59] Kop: We already know m8 :(
[16:01] Kop: you realise your going to get a minimum 1 year ban right ?
[16:02] Mega“: yea im quitting gaming

Original Account: [Link]

New Account: [Link]

Both accounts have been banned for 1 year.

    Well that’s at least better than the pathetic french guys…

  6. Demourge: EPA said:

    I already knew! .. Oh wait ..

    When will you learn mega? :)

  7. gEEk!: Mc\\\'s said:

    @Wuff : yeah, turning yourself in just when its obvious you are going to get caught is just really heroic.. FFS stop the racist comments about french ppl, thx.

  8. xncc.: flowerpower/ - wayne tag said:

    maybe you should change name to megaDEATH
    It’s turning meGa in a bad light ;)

  9. xtala said:

    Wtf has this got to do with racism?
    Some French guys got caught and they (and their friends) kept posting about it.
    Wuff is simply referring to the French hackers, as in the guys that recently got caught…

    Anyway, good to see the AC department is doing what it’s supposed to do.

    Not the way the admins are handling things. There’s a new sheriff(s) in town.

  13. miikka: [MIPC] - [MIPC] said:

    it’s amazing how little these cheaters seem to affect the results of the matches…

  14. cook: FB said:

    Yeah, you can’t kill everyone in 1 hit and the bullets don’t travel in a perfect straight line so it doesn’t have a huge effect.

    Plus there’s ubers and all that, making them completely useless. Still give them an unfair advantage though.

    Aaaw mega :(

    Gonna miss you <3

    When you go from Div 5 to Div 2 over night, it’s a bit obvious matey :)

    As CL of Blame I had suspicions about him for around a week now, ever since he ” had his old account hacked and brought a new one” which as most people are aware is a obvious tell tale sign of someone up to something no good :)

    He was confronted by me and removed from Blame yesterday after he admited he had used XX cheat in a pcw.

    For those teams who Blame have played against I apologise if we had known prior he obviously would not of been accepted, I dont believe he cheated in the majority of games played with us but can never know and is rearly irrelivant.

    We as a team despise people who cheat and welcome the admins decission.

    I’m genuinely shocked D:

  22. veronika said:

    Sad story. It’s really not a great thing seeing players who one played with getting banned.
    Gl to blame though. one shouldnt make the mistake blaming a clan for its cheating members, if they didnt know it.

  23. frooker said:

    Don’t blame blame! :O

  40. mnsu1vrh said:

    Is sad. I liked Mega, and although we have to not like cheaters. Remember he was a person too.

  41. fallen seraph: rEJ said:

    well, tbf admitting it and moving on is a lot better than ‘BAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWW’

    gg

  42. Wlv: RaWr :: said:

    So admitting to it, then going off to get a new account – after saying that you’re giving up tf2 is a good thing?

    I don’t want to start a flame mega band wagon but Christ, credit given when credit due!

  43. Iller: tGa said:

    Im beginning to suspect that there are a lot of cheaters out there in this league waiting to be found.
    Keep up the good work admins !

  44. d0llar said:

    Team counter strike?

  45. MaceWindu said:

    Itis said that he cheated, but it was a lot of fun playing with you Mega. I know for sure you didnt cheat at the start.
    The one who said about Mega going from Season 5 tot season 2. If ya don’t know why he joined the div 5 team at start. Don’t judge then

    Greetz Your Buddy Mace.

  46. fallen seraph: rEJ said:

  51. Typh0n: AUTOBOTS said:

  52. daf: yoyotech - Hey dats! said:

    Love you mega, but you’re a dick for cheating. Was fun playing with you but im glad there is one less cheater in the game.

    Bye

  53. Space: [eLD] said:

    he was a nice guy but cant have people cheating tho :(

  54. mag: [DA] - [AD] said:

    nice guy, very nice guy, but cheater is a cheater at the end of the day.

  55. Newbie said:

    I think we all have to video record our monitors externally in the future and upload on request to prove we’re not cheating! *END SARCASM*

  56. Chopin said:

    mega was so cool! :(

  57. fabetroma said:

    But he is a fucking CHEATER !! Burn him :)

  58. gryzor said:

    I somehow find it distasteful and sadistic to include the word “cheater” along with words such as “cool”, “nice” and so on. Morons ruining spare time hobbies for other people, needs a good hard bashing.

  59. ulv: h. - Liero said:

    @gryzor: i believe a ban is enough.

    omg

  61. The Postman said:

    Why are there so many posts when someone gets banned?
    He cheated, he got caught, get over it.

  62. hezitate: snuke! - r7an will fold said:

    I disagree Postman, I think the fact that the community as one is pretty much saying ‘Well that’s fucking lame’ is a good thing showing it isn’t tolerated… GJ admins.

  64. Predz: [DA] - [AD] said:

    why cant u edit on this shit

  65. byte said:

    It is unfortunate, don’t know which is better either the fact we caught u mega or u admitted it after 2/3 weeks. Either way dude not the right way to improve urself and be known to the community :/

    If your quitting gaming for your shame i wouldn’t i’d come back same alias, and try to make a point, that you’ve changed and don’t cheat.

    Just remember people when someone does cheat in anything whether its a game or rl usually when they are caught they serve a punishment, once that punishment is over they have paid the price for the “crime” they did! So lets not hinder a player once he does make a comeback in the future.

    I can also vouch for WildCard’s clan (Blame|) knew nothing of this and also would never condone having a cheater in their clan, they are a clean clan ;x

    gl Mega if you do make a comeback in the future!

    Cheers

    Well done! ETF2L “anti-cheat” department did good work!
    Keep it up, lads!

    CHEERS

  67. fabetroma said:

    A clean clan with a cheater ok … ::)

  68. Agron: Relic said:

    I was gonna flame-blame Blame, but I see Byte vouched for them, so nvm!

    oh +1 me, bcus I’m funy )))

  69. neO: L51 said:

    Did he admit just while the axe was falling on his neck or just during the seconds after the cut ? Coz it’s interesting anatomically speaking.

    Btw demo of beheading ! During which tick did the axe touch the neck ? Do we have the axe’s steam_id ?

    @gryzor: i believe a ban is enough.

    made me lol :D

    @ neo, we had found him guilty of cheating but was in the process of finishing off the “inhouse” evidence as VAC banned his 1st account. So he owned up AFTER being caught

  71. byte said:

    fabetroma: Ã said:

    “A clean clan with a cheater ok … ::)”

    Sadistic much? Just because one person is found in a clan to be cheating doesn’t mean the rest in that clan are dishonest and cheaters too…

    I know WildCard hence i can vouch for him he wouldn’t cheat nor allow cheaters in his clan, just because he didn’t pick up on it doesn’t mean he allows cheaters or mean his clan isn’t clean.

    I’d learn to think before speak/post fabetroma: Ã

    <3 Agron :D

    Cheers

  72. fabetroma said:

    I wasn’t speaking about other members of this clan but telling that this one was not clean during the last season because of a cheater in it…Then maybe other members are clean (sure) and they didn’t know that Mega cheated… well
    Keep going on cheaters hunt :)

  73. Gobi: WSB? said:

    OMG ! A NEW POKEMON IN TOWN: TSHIIITAZ !!!
    CATCH DEM ALL :D

  74. Wlv: RaWr :: said:

    When did byte specifically say “clean last season”??!!!

    Read the comments properly before making sarcastic comments.

  75. ^dazed said:

    If we had known that mega was cheating we would have kicked him out straight away. No team is stupid enough to knowingly have a hacker in their team, because when they get caught they will have all their wins turned to losses (as iCon did) and get a lot of bad publicity about the clan. So think about it and stop being such a suspicious paranoid sadistic prick.

    Thanks to all those who posted usefull and supportive comments :)

  76. ^dazed said:

    (that was directed @ fabetroma: Ã )

    why cant i edit posts FFS

  77. fabetroma said:

    I though i could add a sarcastic post like many people did concerning last news specially bans of french players…Many people did it :), anyway he admitted, and for this season arriving this clan is now clean i agree. gl hf

  78. daf: yoyotech - Hey dats! said:

    lol @ the “racist” comment… get a fucking grip

  79. cook: FB said:

    English people joke about me because I am Welsh.

    Therefore all English people are racists.

  80. gEEk!: Mc\\\'s said:

    French players are getting flamed on every pcw/pickup etc since those cheaters stories came out… That’s juste what i wanted to point out, and “racist” might not have been the best word, sorry for that, but i admit it can be hard to understand for you (seem that you cant read between the lines).

    Anyway, gj admins, blablabla

  81. RaCio: GoT² said:

    “French players are getting flamed on every pcw/pickup etc since those cheaters stories came out… ”

    That’s because it’s fucking funny to see some French people crying everytime someone makes a joke about french people being cheaters.
    Grow a spine and please get some sense of humor please.

  82. Tsu: RaWr :: said:

    Yeah, be men, French guys :)
    Be k1cked :)

    More seriously, as a French and, most of all, part of the ex-k1ck team, I know it’s the hard price to pay, due to some brainless/stupid/whatever_you_want attitudes of my ex-partners (and it hurts more when u didn’t have a clue about it before).
    But I also know (hope ? :p) for sure that a majority of the community doesn’t believe a second that all French are cheaters (except for my man Fragga :) ).

    So please, French mates, take it easy and… stop talking about racism, it’s just insane here :/
    Let’s talk about Pokemon or dr. Justice strip-tease session !

  83. Fragga: FRAGGA`s - RIP said:

    I dont believe for one moment all french are cheaters, doesn’t stop me joking about it though.

    Besides, ever since the war in Iraq it’s fasionable to blame France. Don’t blame us, blame Hollywood!

    Or Canada ;)

    Anyway, good job anti-cheat police!
