So, you know that hack S.A.M (STEAM ACHIEVMENT MANAGER) That can unlock all achievments ye, if its so ez to get achievments unlocked wouldnt it be ez to hack your steam lvl? you know have like lvl 1000 and that stuff?
yeah and get easy banned huh? its for them way easier to monitor high ranked steam players cus theres only a few with that high level so if you come out of nowhere with a level of 1000 its pretty obvious
They're majorly different, steam level / rank and all of that is completely server sided. Whilst the game achievements are mostly client sided, only things the server checks afaik is to make sure you have the game & that the game is supposedly running when they receive the message from the client.
