[EGN]Battlefield 3 "cheaters will be banned" DICE said - Page 9

I'm sure if your name is in the thread they're not just going to ban you, they'll investigate your activity.
post #82 of 112
well its closed now we'll see what happens from here if a few of the well known guys actually get banned i.e 11-15% accuracy but over 7 marksman medals (the full blown medal not damn ribbon) are you kidding?

Quite funny if you ask me

So this another fix for you if you are cheating or using hacks
Not if they hardware ban you. Which, I'm sure is a definite possibility, and they should.

Swapping harddrives, reinstalling windows, placing the gpu or soundcard or raidcontroller in and out nullifies that
I know what i speak of, cuz we have that with the hack
EA is not that smart, been hacking for months without getting banned

I just worry about mistaken bans~ which can happen. They have happened, and most likely will happen.

Banning is similar to how DRM can affect good people instead of pirates. It can be used for good, but sometimes will affect those it shouldn't.

I've seen this first hand with my girlfriend, who couldn't hack a game for squat. Investigating her system revealed no viruses or any wrongdoing, but she still received a PB ban which couldn't be disputed. One of the most agonizing and frustrating experiences ever.

I can't even begin to convince her to play a PB based game these days. Not with her WoW addiction going on anyway~ lol... but still, it's not a perfect system. Reports can be abused as well.

I've known people to get banned on Xbox Live just for being good players and frustrating people who feel it HAS to be a hacker, and knee-jerk reactions from administration instead of real, thorough investigations.

Oh I have a funny story. I tried Combat Arms once (I was broke and wanted to play a new game.) Anyways, installed the game, got banned on the second server I played. Not just banned from the server, but from the entire game. 12 year olds just can't handle getting their arses handed to them in a crappy F2p Fps

They can ban the mac address, which means you'll have to change your motherboard and they have before.
I can only hope they do this to the fullest.
By the way, Do you feel good about yourself that the ONLY way you can win is by cheating? What comes around goes around. Sooner or later you'll get yours!

Got dual lan

I get stressed at work and they only real thing by relieving that stress is by doing that
They can ban me idc, they arent doing the hardware id ban anyway
Because hackers will stop paying for the game
I was banned 3 times in the beginning of bc2 (bc2 key was like 25 usd)
EA doesnt care about there users, they only care about money

Not fond of global bans for hacking. If people want to experiment with things that are commonly regarded as cheats or hacks, they should be able to, if they are on a server that supports such things.

Most reports of cheating/hacking are complete nonsense. From what I've seen, at least 90% of accusations a false, and a good portion of those are outright malicious. Even if the reports are just going to be used for investigations, they are going to need some filter (say 20 reports of a single name required) to justify really looking into things.

Also, as has been mentioned, there are many programs that have no influence on the game that can be flagged by cheat detection software.

Nothing really replaces a server with a competent admin who has direct control over things.

If you want to 'experiment' hacks and degrade other people's enjoyment of the game, play on servers that don't have Punkbuster enabled.
