    Announcement: I'M BACK. HOLY SHIT, 360 MEMBERS!? WHAT THE FUCK AWESOME!

    JOIN THE STEAM GROUP! UNITE IN SHAME! (Moralists allowed as long as you aren't a halo-flaunter.)
    http://steamcommunity.com/groups/immoralcheaters

    You can now use an automatic generator created by Swedman. It's pretty nice!
    http://tfcheater.tk/

    Seems I've started a small avatar fad in another thread, so I think I'll make it easier for those who'd like to have it. Just put this over your avatar like mine is. If you need one made, I'll be happy to.



    If you want to change up the wording, the text used is tf2build (top) and tf2secondary (bottom). You can find them both in your TF2 files (both in the GCF and already in your tf folder). The colors are from the "you cheated" warning window that comes up when you logged in after losing your items (but you can obviously copy them from my image).

    UPDATE: Transparent PNG version! It's never been easier! (Thanks, xpod1!)


    MORE UPDATE: Wouldn't ya' know it? Daimao finally woke up! And now you moral high-roaders have a badge of (apparent) honor to mock us with:


    ALSO! Never idled and still don't have a damned Cheater's Lament or any other of those damned hats? Just want to keep using this faggy avatar fad after it dies tomorrow? Grimezy15 has done you a service:


    NEW! hexpunK decided to make a dual-tag for cheaters who also have no hats. It'll block out your avatar pretty badly if you don't have much to your avatar, but it's neat to have anyway.

    If somebody can make this into a transparent PNG for easier copy+pasting, do so and I'll stick it here in the OP.
    What'd you mean? Like blank out the areas your avatar would be?

    Sure.

    I'd like to encourage people to make their own, though.
    See mine<-

    We are not cheaters i think. I think we are smart. We actually have lives to tend to and dont want to sit in the basement in the dark in front of burning pixels and flickering lights. We instead just leave the comp on and go outside, or talk to friends, and do something constructive.

    Because we weren't cheating, we were just using resources to make Valve's shitty system less shitty.

    Why is it "Apparently?" I don't care if all you idlers don't agree with me, whether or not VALVe "Just changed it." You did violate the EULA.

    As a matter of fact we did not, READ THE BLOG POST ON TF2.COM

    Due to us not having a policy in place prior to today, this time we're only removing the items earned through cheating the system.

    Because if we actually cheated, we would be VAC banned.

    Well, it was an exploit used to give yourself an advantadge over others, regardless. Fairly obvious VALVe wouldn't want it around. Got me there, though.

    Thanks.

    And to those saying "I'm not a cheater, don't call me that :(", this tag is sarcastic (hence the "apparently"). Valve has marked us by giving every "non-cheater" a special item to signify their non-cheaterness...so I did the same to myself (but sarcastically).

    It's not that great, I know; I just made a thread about it since several people in threads I posted in started doing it.

    I'm not a cheater, I just didn't feel like after 450+ hours of playing before I got a dupe Ubersaw when the update first came out was not fair.

    My second time was 2 weeks later after continuous playing, jarate.

    I love the idea. No doubt someone going to circulate a non-cheater version and FP will become split.

    Edited:

    I only used the idle program in the first 2 weeks that it came out too. Oh well, at least I still have my achievement weapons.

    Well they should have SAID something like... you know... a few months ago, when the idler appeared, but no, they decided to keep quiet and ninja-screw-us-over.

    Don't cry for not having a halo boys, remember what happened to this guy?

    Used the idler, got a Camera Beard, and pretty much stopped after that.

    Whatever, didn't lose anything really.
