Titanfall gives cheaters a taste of their own medicine

I like to follow how different companies decide to deal with cheaters or pirates. In the past I wrote about the wrong player names in FM2014 and the ironic demise of pirates in Game Dev Tycoon.

Today there are news of the system Respawn just implemented to punish the cheaters in the PC version of the game.

You don't get banned, you get to taste your own poison, meaning that once you get flagged for cheating you will only get matched with other players that are cheaters! This is the work of genius!
"oh you like aimbots? Nice... you will play against a lot of people that have them"
Fantastic.
