I think its been tolerated at FT because its main use was looking up your opponents and just gauging of they were winners or losers. The new HUD means FT will be actively trying to find ways to detect the HUD and closing the accounts of people caught using it.
Before, so long as you didnt mention peoples PTR stats in chat you could get away with using PTR, the HUD changes that now.
