Facebook Gaming demonetizes cheaters: new policy after the Vikkstar case
While the skepticism of players about Activision's anti-cheating action rages, some interesting news comes on the front of in-game incorrect attitudes.

It seems that Facebook Gaming has decided to wage a real war against the cheater. The streaming platform, reports the eSport referent Rod Breslau, would in fact have decided to proceed with an action aimed at excluding content generated by incorrect players. The "Vikkstar case", which saw the well-known content creator communicate the abandonment of Call of Duty: Warzone, irritated by the number of active cheaters in the game and exasperated by the presence of gameplay videos published by a incorrect user on Facebook Gaming.

Following the case, Facebook Gaming would therefore have decided to revoke the partnership with the cheater reported by Vikkstar, whose contents have been demonetized. The same treatment would have been reserved for other content creators who used to publish streams during which cheats were presented and openly used. A first step for the platform to combat the phenomenon, which it no longer seems willing to tolerate on its shores.



In the meantime, Vikkstar has announced that it has opened a dialogue channel with Activision, to offer support in the company's action against COD cheating.
