THE BUZZ: Battlefield 3 developer DICE is currently looking for an Anti-Cheat Administrator to further strengthen its online security.

“In our continued effort to keep our games free from cheating, we are now looking for an Internet savvy administrator,” the advert reads. “The administrator will compose an absolutely vital function to secure the online experience our games represent by actively be a part of the community and keep up to date with the current cheat exposure. [sic] The administrator will also own the analytical work with our player behavior data to keep our leaderboards and game play filled with fair play.”

EGM’s TAKE: This move has been forced after a group of hackers managed to ban a number of innocent Battlefield 3 players last week, over anger with the firms Punkbuster anti-cheat system. Along with more and more hackers are appearing in matches as the months go on and many legitimate players are becoming annoyed. Cheats are fun when used with everyone concent or just for fun, for instance big head modes, however when players start using cheats to gain an advantage, especially in ranked matches, it crosses a line. You will never be able to truly eradicate cheats, but you can minimize what happens in your game with the right security system set up, hence the need for DICE to create this postion.

Have you come across many cheaters? How should they be dealt with? Let us know below.
