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.

Why? Cheaters can only be stopped through social pressure, not via bans..

You think you're going to stop cheaters by chastising them? No... Cheating can't be stopped altogether, but it can be mitigated and minimized by a prompt and firm response from the people who run the game. In my experience, cheaters couldn't care less what the community thinks of them. Depending on the person, they're just out to rustle jimmies or feel powerful and advance faster. The entire act of cheating in a multiplayer game rests on a lack of empathy and concern for the people you're playing with.
