Hey cheaters. Yeah, you. Real gamers don't think too highly of you, and neither does DICE.
If you're concerned about cheaters in Battlefield 3 , DICE is on your side and is prepared to be both vigilant and harsh when it comes to offenders. Just check out some of their recent Twitter updates ; a few of the more important ones have been summarized at The Gaming Liberty :
"We take cheating and exploiting very seriously in Battlefield 3 and want to make it clear that it will not be tolerated…"
"This week we’ve banned hundreds of offending accounts and have stats-wiped accounts for exploiting (such as boosting)."
So yeah, don't think you're going to get away with extensive cheating. To be perfectly honest, even though I'm not much of an online player, I can't see the fascination in cheating. Isn't that a completely hollow victory? Don't you know you aren't actually winning anything? Or is it just fun to be a di**? Maybe I'm just old-fashioned in my belief that if I accomplish something, I want to say I accomplished it.
And DICE will continue to keep an eye out.
"We’ll continue to be monitoring and taking action against the minority that doesn’t respect the integrity of the game."
So, you know. Take that.
