The Destiny community has been voicing their anger over players cheating in Trials of Osiris by DDoS attacking players.
In a post on the Bungie blog, the developer warned that it takes DDoS attacks very seriously and has already banned several players who have been called out for using the tactic to win in Trials.
“The Banhammer is being swung often. We take DDoS attacks very seriously,” the developer wrote. “We have automated systems in place to detect them and take action against offenders, up to and including permanent bans from Destiny. Some of the offenders reported this past weekend in trending threads fall in this category and have played their last Trials card. Your reports help us make sure these systems are catching everybody they should be, so please keep them coming.”
Bungie also encourages players to continue reporting players via the in-game tools and not to call people out in public forums.
“Please use these reporting methods, rather than starting posts about players you suspect of cheating on forums. Sending reports directly to Bungie ensures that we will see them, and we don’t want players receiving threats and hate mail. The Banhammer’s message is strong, and doesn’t risk innocent players being publicly attacked for false claims.”
