EA Has Banned Hundreds of Battlefield 3 Cheaters

EA announced it has been dropping the ban hammer on hundreds of “offending” Battlefield 3 accounts and has stats-wiped accounts for using exploits, such as boosting.

One way to look at this is that EA has banned hundreds of cheaters, and that’s awesome. But another way to look at this is that EA has only banned hundreds of cheaters, and there are thousands more. I don’t know what the numbers are — I’m sure they’re smaller than those of a certain competing game — but we can at least take solace in the fact that EA is cracking down on the matter.

How often do you see someone cheating or using an exploiting in Battlefield 3?

But another way to look at it is that they do absolutely nothing about the hundreds of sites that subscribe such crap to the thousands in the first place? Take solace in that fact.
And its been eight years+/- of “cracking down on the matter” with punkbuster, VAC and banning what has it really achieved in all this time?
Not a gawd damn thing, and that’s awesome.

VAC has never been used in a battlefield game Garbage, VAC stand for Valve anti cheat. none of the battlefield series has used steamworks.
