i hear dying light recently had a vac ban wave happen in the last 30 days or something that effected even single player hackers, is this true? i was jsut coming to find a table and learned this from steam discussion of the game, so like true or false?
I have no VAC bans, and you need to be using a VAC server to get VAC banned (it's in the UCLA, and that has real legal meaning in the US; but I think they also reserved the right to ban for any reason). If you play on VAC servers then, yeah you can get a ban at any point (could be any amount of time before they actually ban you, they tend to do this to make it harder to tell why you got banned). Most of the people claiming to only have played SP and get a VAC ban are most likely lieing, you tend to see this a lot; my favorite one so far is "I dropped my phone on the keyboard and CE opened and attached to the game, it's not my fault; I wasn't cheating" (while there is room for this to be true; I feel one should know better than to add a VACed game to the auto attach list, and actually play online with it; and then add keyboard macros to run CE).
But yeah, hackers will tend to proudly tell you they hack games (I say it on my steam page). But cheaters tend to try to hide it, I guess it makes them feel better about themselves.
EDIT: Most of the people on steam claiming they "got VAC banned for no reason", have multiple VAC bans on multiple games; this should tell you a lot. Just make sure VAC is disabled, there was an issue with it being enabled by default (in 2016) but the devs fixed this; they actually support SP mods.
