Also no-spread and pSilent have been patched out Two commands commonly used by LMAOBOX cheaters to autoaim and to make it seem like they weren't using aimbots. Going to be fun to see who can't aim anymore with this update due to relying on those cheats.

Oh man, the LMAObox forums are a hilarious thing right now, lots of "OMG VALVE RUINED TF2 I QUIT".



One particularly amusing reply on the TF2 subreddit:


I'd like to think that Valve have planned this whole elaborate scheme out to ban as many hackers as possible in preparation for competitive.

First, they need to update TF2 with a change that breaks the most "fun" aspects of the hack, without entirely disabling it. They've done that through silent aiming and nospread. Without those two small features, the community will uproar. As we've seen, people have been abandoning the hack and TF2, and some have asked for refunds. Afraid of losing business, lmaobox needs to fix the hack as soon as possible to minimize damage. This begins the second part of the plan.

Knowing that lmaobox would be in a panic trying to bypass this, Valve update VAC with what they expect him to do. By fixing it this soon, lmaobox has shown that he has done it quickly, perhaps sloppily, falling into the trap in the process.

The final part of the plan is waiting for the scout to return with good information; they are like the ants that follow it blindly, and they, too, will end. Those who find the hack to be safe and working will tell others, and bring them into this mess, only for VAC to detect them. With the bait successful, Valve pull the string, banning unprecedented numbers of users, ending or at least crippling the hacking community. The plan was huge, and it makes gaming news everywhere. Premium hack accounts have been banned, and the entire world sees that it is unreliable. Lmaobox takes a hit to business now that no one buys his program, and he eventually goes under. This intimidates other hacking communities, and they crumble under suspicion and doubt.

Valve release the matchmaking update to a community grateful for an environment free of hackers.

Now we wait for it to go according to keikaku.
