 Игрока забанили навсегда за изменение скорости мышки ResetEra on the forum there is a discussion of an interesting case: a player in PVP-horror Hunt: Showdown banned for changing mouse DPI in the game. According to support the game, it gave him an unfair advantage over the others.

Mouse DPI — the number of pixels by which to move the mouse with minimal movement. On most gaming mice, this value is adjusted and initially different models have different DPI.

Player Hunt Showdown was banned for changing DPI, led to the fact that the player has received fair to the other players advantage. Writing in support, he received the following reply:

Hello,

Thank you for Your question. We carefully studied Your situation and was able to confirm that You have changed the DPI of the mouse during the game and were able to gain an unfair advantage over other players. In accordance with section 4 of the User agreement of Steam, we limit Your access to online services HUNT: Shownown. We can’t offer You any help in this situation, and we regret to inform that Your account remains banned in the HUNT: Showdown forever.

This statement caused the players outrage:

Ban your headphones
Ban your 1080 [graphics card]
Ban your macros

They banish all…— CozMick

Players can now see any of the cheaters banned on Steam. For Chrome and …

Some users did not believe the news, saying that this is utter nonsense, but some are not surprised at the behavior of Crytek — the developer of the game:

As if you needed more reasons to send Crytek.— SunBroDave, the user ResetEra

LOL Crytek is at it again. What a bunch of nonsense.— GTAce, the user ResetEra

Others noted that rejoining, the player may still be guilty of:

He had some script that changes the DPI while he was flying over the enemy, causing him to aim better? Or he pushed the button on the mouse while you were shot?— Burt, the user ResetEra

The guy just changed [DPI] between rounds, or he had a macro (short automatic sequence of actions), which itself changed the DPI in flight over the enemy depending on the distance between the sight and the enemy?

The second actually gives an advantage.— Lyrick, the user ResetEra

Macros are banned in most online games, as they give the player an advantage before other macros can perform actions per person faster and more correctly than himself, because of what the result turns out to be better not because of his skill, but because of the actions of the program.
