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 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.

Not sure what they thought would happen here: let's give bonuses to factions with a certain number of facilities and a different bonus to groups of players with less players but not enough to offset the facility bonuses. What???? I really don't get the whole XP bonus system? Should I even be trying to play?

Here's what happens in this game: Either A) you end up with a decent squad commander and he gets fairly involved in where you go and what you should be doing or B) you join a squad with someone clueless commanding it and nothing whatsoever gets done or C) you join up only to immediately see people shooting teammates or team controlled assets and think, "WTF?".

On top of all that I constantly see speed hacks. It's freaking ridiculous. In addition there are hacks allowing people to get to places they shouldn't have access to, too.

I have all but sworn off this bullshit until they can contain the insane number of people hacking it, which may be never since it's a F2P game and any jackass with an internet connection can join in.

To play devils advocate, stop for two minutes and think about the scope of PS2.....the size, the weapon variables along with empire specific stats, facility stas, gadgets for player, for vehicle, for armor and all the potential permutations when one combines all the aforementioned. its a fucking miracle that the game plays as well as it does. oh, and keeping free players competitive with those who are willing to spend a few bucks.

the game has its issues but cut the dev team some slack. Its an amazing game that has no equal currently.
