Bungie promises to ban cheaters in Destiny

You guys are still here?

It’s not exactly a drastic reach to say that people shouldn’t cheat when playing an online game. People should definitely not be cheating during Destinys Trials of Osiris, and it gets even worse when the means of that cheating involves keeping your opponents from reconnecting to the game. Yes, apparently you could do that, but the “egregious” offenders who did precisely that are now enjoying a brand-new ban.

There’s no word on exactly how many players were caught in the bannings, but the intention seems to be to make it clear that cheaters are caught and punished. Some players ran afoul of a bug as well, causing them to lose connection and have similar troubles, so it’s also unclear how many players were impacted by either issue. Regardless, take this as a life lesson: Don’t cheat. Good advice all around!

Isn’t that article image from Warhammer 40k? I know I’m tired today but that’s what it looks like to me.

I always liked the karma aspects of games creating “cheaters’ areas”.
“Guess what? Your punishment is to play with people just as skeevy as you are!” :-D

I’ll believe it when I see it.  Cheating is a game unto itself for many.

Damonvile the only way to stop cheating 100% is to stream the game from a server out to million of players.

that way if somebody loads in with a 3rd party program active it gets rejected.

of course if this happened there would be all kinds of other problems. Also modding is out of the question.

No matter how many people games ban for cheating there will always be more ready to do it again. It’s just human nature to think nothing bad will ever happen to us. Prison is full of people who thought they were so smart and would get away with it…till they didn’t.
Cheating is the same way. In the moment they laugh and think it’s so funny, till they get banned and it’s ” they never saw it coming”

Banning may be a necessary punishment, but it will never be a prevention.

boredinBC SpookyDonkey24 Lheiah I’ve heard GTA:O tries to do this too – throws cheaters into a “cheaters pool”

A game where you have to cheat to win, but if you’re caught you lose?

Hmm…. interesting….

How long will it be until the outcry against “cheat shaming” begins?
