macros aren't hacks, they're still questionable ethically and they're even hard to detect, especially when they're built into the drivers for the hardware.
BenQ used to advertise that their monitors reduced teh duration of flashbangs in counter strike. Their black equalizer is still advertising that it can get rid of dark areas in the maps to make you see better. Both clearly gives players an advantage, and are ethically questionable features to use, but i've never seen someone getting banned from a server or an entire game for using a BenQ monitor, i doubt we will see any major developer ban someone for using a mainstream mouse manufacturers' drivers as long as they aren't flagrantly hacking into the game's software.Edited by Atavax - 10/27/13 at 12:42pm
