Whether they're stat boosting or straight-up hacking the Gibson, Battlefield 3 players with a penchant for the illegitimate should be aware that EA has just banned "hundreds" of accounts for not competing all fair-like.
This was recently posted from the official Battlefield 3 Twitter account:
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) ... We'll continue to be monitoring and taking action against the minority that doesn’t respect the integrity of the game.
I guess it's good to know that guy on the leaderboards with over five billion points probably isn't awesomely better than you. Just better at using the hacks, though not discreetly.
I haven't played Battlefield 3 online yet — in fact, I don't even own the game. For those that have indulged in DICE's shooter, what bothers you more — players cheating or bugs that cause bizarre human centipedes and eternally-flipping jeeps?
