Biggest VAC Ban Happened After Steam Summer Sale

The Steam Summer Sale is over and Valve made a lot of money selling games. If you bought a bunch of new games, you'll want to make sure you're not a cheater. There were over 40,000 cheaters that got banned right after the sale - and I'm sure the Valve is not willing to refund these pond-scum suckers any money. That's the price you pay if you want to cheat, and I have no sympathy for them. Still, it would have been a little more honorable if Valve had banned them before they took their money. Karma is rough.

July 5 was the last day of the Steam Summer Sale; subsequently, Valve cracked down on cheaters the next morning, knowing that they’d want to get their game on another account at a discount. 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.
