So simple, so straightforward, so brilliant.

Titanfall's Cheater System is Remarkable
OK, we'll admit it, we've occasionally been less than impressed with superstar developer Respawn and its Titanfall, online-multiplayer only shooty-shooty game. But even we've got to stand in awe at the wonderful way its handles cheats (aka 'Cheaters').

There is good and bad news for people using PCs to play the game in a cheating manner. The more you look at the resolution, the more you'll ask yourself, "Why doesn't everybody do this?" What happens when you get banned is...

"You get to keep playing Titanfall! Less-great news: you only get to play with other cheaters. You can play with other banned players in something that will resemble the Wimbledon of aimbot contests. Hopefully the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best, or these all-cheater matches could be frustrating for you. Good luck."

Brilliant. And it gets more harsh and more brilliant.

"Q.) If Iím banned, what happens if I make a party with my non-cheater friends?
A.) When anyone in your party is banned, then everyone in your party will be treated as banned for that play session. If you are a non-cheater and you invite a cheater friend into a party, you will be stuck playing against cheaters. If you stop inviting your cheater friend, you will once again get to play with the non-cheater population. You do not get permanently tainted just by playing with a cheater - you are only banned for cheating if you are actually cheating."

Sounds innovative, but is this going to encourage potential cheaters to cheat?

@realvictory I don't see how it would encourage them. But even if it does, it shouldn't affect the rest of us :D as long as it is quickly detected and dealt with.
