Cheating has become one of the biggest challenges affecting online games communities negatively. Cheaters are players that have been led astray by a mixture of motivations. To best prevent cheating, we must understand why these players turn to it. In this session, we will break down the primary motivations for why players cheat, how we can address these motivations, and share best practices to keep our communities safe.


Attendees of this presentation will walk away with a preventative mindset when addressing game cheating and hacking. As we look at the main motivators for cheating, we will provide best practices in game design, operation needs, and security technology for addressing each one of these motivations.

Intended Audience

Our session will be helpful for those that care about creating and fostering healthier communities through fair play. It will be of direct interest to anyone battling cheating. It will also benefit folks who directly work on game design, game security, and even community management.
