    Another huge step forward for iOgaming - Steambans!




    The admin staff is pleased to announce that all iO servers are now enrolled in the Steambans system!

    What is exactly IS steambans? Steambans is a global database of known cheaters. By registering with steambans, our servers are now protected against players that have been PROVEN to use hacks in other servers around the world. There are currently over 37,000 steam ID's in the steambans system. That's 37.000 known and proven hackers that would be blocked from joining one of our servers. Indeed, within the first 2 hours of installing steambans, we already snared somebody who was in the steambans database!

    Steambans is a two-way street, as well. Not only can we benefit from their huge database, but we can contribute to it as well. The admin staff is currently learning how this process works, but we will soon begin submitting our own bans to the system. The "burden of proof" for getting a ban accepted by steambans is even more rigorous than our own guidelines. When a steambans participating community submits a ban, it must be accompanied by a demo file. From there, it goes through a rigorous review process by impartial steambans staff. At least 3 steambans administrators must agree that the demo proves without a doubt that the player is a cheater. Only then is the ban entered into the database.

    This is a huge step for our community. One of the things we're most proud of is that we have relatively clean servers. This is thanks to the hard work of our dedicated admin staff and keen eyes of our members who often bring incidents to our attention. Once in awhile though, a cheater slips through. Now we have "big daddy" steambans watching over our community, 24/7/365.

    Just by participating with this program, we should see even less cheating activity. Cheaters now face a huge risk by playing in our servers, because if they get caught, they will not only be banned from our servers, but also from the nearly 2000 other servers also protected by steambans. The consequences of getting caught cheating here will just be too high.

    Finally, a huge shout-out to senior admin d_morals who worked hard to get this all up and running. We can blame him for this awesomeness!

    Good games!

    Another reason to love iO servers. I never go elsewhere unless iO servers are empty or down.

    Same here, unless I want to play warpath, which will probably never be on an iO server

    The efforts the admins put in to make the iO servers as sweet as they are is appreciated by many players, members or not. Hats off to the entire crew !!

    I'm guessing this means I should turn off my uber l337 hax now

    My mother never saw the irony in calling me a son-of-a-bitch.

    Hey Easy, you got me good on your sig. At first I didn't notice it at all. Then I thought, "oh the sig must change to insult every person that sees it." Then I realized, you made it just to rip on me. DAMN YOU!

    ROFL! I was wondering how long it would take you to notice that! Seriously though, when I see you join the other team I just shake my head, sigh, and stand in line to take my beatdown like a man. At least last night you were an engineer and I only had to deal with your sentry rather than a thousand rockets to the face!

    This is good. Last night I did see it say something like: "[steambans] no match found for [iO] Alucard" then under that it said my Steam ID and stuff. I wasn't sure what it was until now. But this is really good. It's a good way to discourage hackers. At least, the smart ones.
