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.
