More Cheaters Get Banned From Planetside 2, One Of Whom Spent Over $230
SOE is cracking down heavily on cheaters in Planetside 2. The game, which was launched as a free to play title late last year, has seen numerous instances of cheaters who’ve attempted to gain an unfair, Lance Armstrong-like advantage through the use of aimbots.
Not one to mince words, SOE boss John Smedley wished the cheaters good riddance on his Twitter account. He wrote: “Our CS (customer service) guys are banning the crap out of a whole bunch of idiots.”
He added that two of the players who received bans had over 300 hours of playtime, while another player had spent $230 on the game.
“Thanks for playing. Bunch of aimbots crashing like crazy now,” he added in a later tweet.
SOE appears to have no qualms with banning players who break the rules, and by doing so make the game unenjoyable for everyone else, regardless of how much time or money they spend on it. The studio stated their intentions to crack down on aimbots last year, and it looks like they’re making good on their promise.
