Infinity Ward Bans 1,600 Cheaters from Modern Warfare 3

Posted by | November 20, 2011

I do love me a good banning. The Modern Warfare series has been plagued by hacking, griefing, and cheating right from the moment two people logged into the same server. It’s almost a contest now, a strange evolution of the game where players compete not for score or flag caps, but to bring out the most horrifying mods and superpowers. The battlefields have become a catwalk, where modders twist and turn, showing off the latest antisocial fashions to a captive and unwelcoming audience. So finally, there comes a good, solid banning. It’s a step in the right direction, sure, but only 1,600? Drop in a damn bucket. Add two more zeros and we’ll talk. GamePro has the story.

    I never got the point of cheating to win in these games. Aren’t they supposed to test your skill, instead of your ability to download hacks? It’s like playing Monopoly, yelling “Look! Elvis!” and swiping a handful from the banker’s cash drawer while everyone’s distracted. If you’re gonna hack, do it with style. Guns that shoot chickens. Grenades that shout out that old AOL jingle “You’ve got mail!” Shotguns that hit with enough force to launch people into orbit. Make it fun.

    Then get banned.
