On BF3 Cheating

There's an interesting article on Kotaku on cheating in multiplayer games, focusing on malfeasance in Battlefield 3, DICE's military shooter sequel. Well, malfeasance is our term, the article takes an almost sympathetic tone, characterizing the cheaters it specifically portrays as regular players, and relating their complex rationalizations of how they are somehow more justified than garden-variety cheaters. The article also takes a surprisingly informative approach to details on this, choosing to provide links to cheat providers, prices of various exploits, and even de facto reviews of their effectiveness.

If you are on a server that "deals with cheaters quickly" you are just having some idiot admin who can't tell left from right banning people because he is back with 3 to 17 stats while I have 15 to 3 (happened to me on canals hardcore tdm of all places). A good player can have a good run, I actually have days where I can EASILY play a 3.0 KD ratio for many rounds and have to hold back others I don't even get into the top 20 even if i try.

Fucking stupid admins are as bad as cheaters. Both equally damage the game. I just chalk it up as "it's their server" and honestly, being banned for cheating when you are not cheating, that is extremely good for the ego.

But as you said, too much on BF3 runs client side and this is why you got damage cheats, insta kill cheats and stuff like that. That said, those cheats, can all easily be found by the pb system if they have some people "inside" the cheat sites buying the latest stuff and then waiting some weeks before a ban wave. that is likely how PB currently operates
