Getting Banned From Modern Warfare 3-For 5,000 Days!

THE BUZZ: An image has been floating around the internet today, proclaiming to show somebody who was banned from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for 5,000 days. Turns out—it’s real.

On his Twitter account today, Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling had the following to say in response to the image (and story) showing up on MP1st.com:

Player Banned for 5000 days?! Yes. If you see this message, it means you’ve been Permabanned (for something bad)

 

EGM’s TAKE: So, the 5,000 day ban isn’t just a cruel joke on the part of Activision and Inifity Ward—it’s basically the means of handing out a permaban. I guess for some players, though, that is indeed still a cruel joke.
