Machine Medic: anyway, subnetbans will not solve it, if someone really want to break some game round then he can use proxy and obtain totally different ip.

I was going to say almost the same thing actually Rotacak.....

My version was if a real hacker wanted to get in he could just change his ip...
Formally known as the "Stat Padding Try Hard" on World of Tanks.....

Any possibility of banning a MAC address?

No, Mac address is vissible only in LAN and it can be changed too.

I think that best way to prevent griefers to access servers is just this:

1) Commercial game + unique account (you can 100% ban it)
2) Password protected gameserver (suitable only for CW and similar)

Everything else is not 100%.

Well I thought MAC address is traceable not only on the link layer, nevermind.

I agree with the possible precautions, it's as good as it gets.
