Bungie Readies the Halo 3 Ban Hammer
Halo 3 cheaters: you know who you are. But so does Bungie, and they are not pleased. Last week, the company left an ominous warning on their message boards that they intended to do something about this select group of people. Now, apparently a Bungie employee has confirmed that the ban hammer is being polished up and will be ready to use soon. They just want to make absolutely sure that the people being banned are really cheating and not abusing game issues:
Network attacks, by and large. Hard to prevent, easy to detect, but we’ve had to wait and make sure there were no game issues that could be confused for abusive behavior.
Banning a false positive is worse than missing several legitmate bridgers, DDoS’ers, and their ilk. So our process has been pretty methodical so far.
If you’ve cheated in the past, they’re probably onto you already, so prepare to say goodbye to the Halo 3 multiplayer. That’s right, I’m talking to you, guy-who-killed-me-in-one-shot-with-an-assault-rifle-five-times-in-a-freakin’-row. Your days are numbered. Ahahahaha!
