Battlefield 3-Hundreds of Players Banned for Cheating

THE BUZZ: Hundreds of players have been banned by EA and DICE from Battlefield 3 after being caught cheating.

“This week we’ve banned hundreds of offending accounts and have stats-wiped accounts for exploiting (such as boosting)…” DICE said on Twitter. The stat wipes are apparently connected to the EOD Bot exploit that allowed players to get thousands of XP points with no effort. “To report players cheating or boosting send us a direct message to this Twitter with a screen shot of the Battle Log Report,” the developer asks.

EGM’s TAKE: The old adage of cheaters never prospering comes to mind.

Are you glad that EA and DICE are addressing the issue? Leave your thoughts below.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
