VAC bans in waves, you do not get banned immediately when you hack, you will get banned 1-2 weeks later.

VAC also does not release info as to what you were banned for.

VAC also does not make mistakes.

There are three recorded instances of incorrect detections, all under VAC1 and all quickly rescinded. These were:

1. On its initial release, VAC would issue bans for faulty memory. Valve quickly updated VAC to only kick for faulty memory and reversed all bans for faulty memory.

2. The effect of running the VAC-protected game through the Cedega software compatibility layer for Linux.

3. An apparent server-side glitch on April 1, 2004.


Hur hur.

Notice how it says under VAC1 (which I was previously aware of), which is no longer used. Therefore there is no way that the thread starter didn't cheat.

This version of VAC doesn't make mistakes. (There, happy?)

oh and also Cheats may be hidden inside otherwise legitimate mod or skin downloads that are created to maliciously get innocent people banned. Since the source of a cheat installed on a computer cannot be proven, bans due to this are never rescinded. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valve_A...ive_detections

My point was, that VAC has made mistakes in the past.
