Faceit takes cheating in games very seriously and has taken great measures to make sure that users can not cheat while they are playing a game on their platform. They have a highly advanced cheat detector to their server that disables users to cheat, while they are playing a game. Their cheat detector is then joined with a different server-side analysis that helps improve the functionality of the cheat detector as the volume of the game keeps increasing. Faceit has kept a close eye on the different kinds of behaviors users or gamers have used or displayed while they play the game and hence this particular observation has allowed Faceit to make a continuous analysis of these cheats and any new ones and they are automatically updated in the cheat library of Faceit so that each time, it is easier to detect a cheat. Faceit has also made sure that a cheat can be detected while the gamer or the user is on the server playing a game. This way, not only is a user not allowed to cheat and is caught but it also gives the others an assurance that it is a completely legit platform to play games on.
