BF3 Anti-Cheat Ramps Up

The Battlefield Blog has word that DICE is turning up the heat on Battlefield 3 cheaters. They say they have handed out a bunch of bans, and are implementing new methods for reporting cheating: :

We have always taken cheating seriously. Starting today, we will further intensify our efforts to hunt down and rid Battlefield 3 of cheaters. Stats wiping and banning this disruptive minority is the only way they will understand that they are ruining the game for others. We do this for the millions of dedicated players out there who deserve a fair game, every game.

If you believe you have been the victim of outright cheating, the best way to report your concerns is to go to Battlelog, enter the profile page of the person you suspect and click the triangle in the top right corner of his name.

This will open up a window where you can describe to us at DICE what happened. Please enter as much detail as possible, describing what specifically makes you believe this player has used unfair methods, and preferably include a link to the Battle Report for the match in question.

These reports are then received by our analysts here at DICE who will do a deeper analysis of the situation and take appropriate action, including stats wiping and/or banning players who are confirmed as cheating.

Reducing the number of cheaters is an ongoing endeavor, and one that we will never stop. Thanks for your co-operation, and see you on the battlefield!

Step 1: Go to stats system and look at top 20% of the players. Run a quick algorithm on score vs time. Ban.
Step 2: Sort players by % of headshots. Ban.

SO many BF2 players are thrilled you watched out for them and now your loving protection once again.

Golly gee willikers, thanks for caring ea.
 
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Step 1, ban many legit players that had better gear on their side. Full surround sound and high precision mouse that allowed them to pin-point and shoot their enemies, more so since their system could handle the game at full specs.

Step 2, again ban players because they had high end gaming gear that allowed them to preform these actions. I've seen people do headshots like nothing and have a very high headshot % without the need of cheats. Combine a large screen monitor (which makes everything, including heads, larger and easier to see/hit) combined with track-ball style mice that allow massive pin-point accuracy. If someone has this setup and knows how to use it, its not hard for them to jump around people headshotting them while being almost impossible to hit.

You can't just sit there blindly going "Ok, these are our top players and no one can be very good at our game so they MUST be cheating". The right gaming gear tuned to a person that knows how to correctly tune it to their needs can play these games amazingly well. I used to watch my brother play Call of Duty on the PS3 with 5.1 surround sound headphones which let him rock almost every game. With the surround sound alone he could pin point were people were running and shooting around him. Run out behind a rock behind him and from the left? Quickly turn while jumping to the side and shoot him. You can hear and in turn know he's exactly there. He wasn't cheating, but the gear made a huge difference.

Agreed for Step 1 emphatically. Anybody getting thousands of points per minute is hacking.

Step 2... could get dicey, but I know what you mean.

What's described in the blog does very little to address the scope of the problem.
