The old saying is that ‘cheaters never prosper’ but perhaps we should update the phrase to ‘cheaters get their accounts banned.’
Battlefield 3 developers DICE have announced they have been busy with the metaphorical ban-hammer and will continue to wield it when required.
“This week we’ve banned hundreds of offending accounts and have stats-wiped accounts for exploiting (such as boosting)” said the official Battlefield 3 Twitter account.
DICE have a ‘dedicated team cleaning out those who disrespect the integrity of the game’ including those who have been exploiting a glitch with the Engineer’s repair tool which allowed players to gain thousands of points per match.
The Twitter account also (jokingly, we assume) tweeted that a Tier 1 ‘beards’ crossover with the characters from Medal Of Honor was on the wishlist.
