Say cheating = a lifetime ban & Valve makes one of loading screen messages that VAC ban = you will NEVER compete.
Who decides to cheat?

Its a simple suggestion and one that might as well prevent a lot of cheaters in the current scenario. We have seen others trying their best to cheat. While IBP did get caught out, there are several others who have definitely not been caught simply cause they are at a much lower tier / less amount of money exchanged hands. Indeed there is nothing to check on a pro player if he decides to bet a few hundred dollars against his own team.
