wont this make it easier for hackers to avoid being reported?
I’ve seen hackers in DoD:Source changing their names numerous of times within seconds on the fly.
Yeah but it will still make it harder for your average person to avoid being reported for hacking. If your name is not associated with a steam name it makes it harder to report someone.
If hackers don’t want to be recognized, they’ll create a hack which allows them to change their names rapidly, even if they’re tied to Steam. Just like they did with DoD:S.
Plus, I’m pretty sure there’s a system in place in (most) UT-based games that can give every player/Steam account it’s own unique ID, whereby a list of those in-game can be accessed by a console command or, with the help of the devs, by a button/menu.
