TO's are absolutely thrash at fighting cheating. Booths are scarce, and never have a peripheral been properly checked for cheats. I have yet to hear of an incident of a peripheral being physically opened to gain direct access to the onboard chip. And this is the only way to properly check it. All other checks are merely for the show, and a waste of human resources.
Booths and no personal peripherals would be groundbreaking.
That players are still allowed to use personal gear, is kind of a green light for cheating.
