PlanetSide 2 Calls Out & Bans "Scumbag"

John Smedley tweets about banning a "scumbag" from PlanetSide 2, getting rid of a culprit in widely reported hacking incidents in the MMOFPS sequel, saying: "Haruhi at http://artificialaiming.com was just banned. all 3 of his accounts. Goodbye you scumbag. Find a new hobby or get good at the game." He adds the cheater hunt will continue: "we don't need to cross reference anything. Use it.. we'll find you. we'll find your family. we'll hunt you down." Thanks Eurogamer.

This game is free to play, right? So... hackers can just make a new account whenever they want... right?

I assume its tied to their steam account so they'd have to make a new steam account aswell? Which although not impossible sure would suck

PS2 is not Steam exclusive, you can download and play the game with its own launcher which is what I do.

I presume they could ban people by IP though, for the little good that does anyway.
