Titanfall cheaters only allowed to play against other cheaters now

The hottest game since Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty is here and it's called Titanfall. As with almost any online game, Titanfall (for PC) quickly became rampant with cheaters using aimbots (auto aiming assistance hacks) to plow through enemies shortly after its launch. But, now, those cheaters are about to get the worst kind of punishment.

Titanfall developer Respawn is out to clean up its first-person online multiplayer in which players control giant mechs (aka Titans) and their pilots to unleash destruction on foes. Aside from banning cheaters, the developer is tweaking the game to single out cheaters using aimbot hacks and only allow them to play against other cheaters. (Called FairFight, the tech is the same one used in Battlefield 4).

From the official Titanfall website:

"Great news: 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."

Respawn's revenge new rules echo similar ones from Rockstar back in 2012 when banished Max Payne 3 cheaters to a cheater's pool. 

The lesson of the day: if you want to enjoy Titanfall on PC, don't cheat. You might just find yourself playing with a bunch of cheaters. And when everyone cheats, even giant robot mechs and parkour-style gameplay is no fun.
