Battlefield 3 Bans Follow-up

The Battlelog forums have a follow-up on recent indications that Battlefield 3 players were being unfairly banned from playing by PunkBuster. Word is: "Together with the 3rd party service providers we have taken steps to remove the faulty bans, and improve the protection against future fake bans. We have determined that the root cause resulting in the server bans is not directly related to Battlefield 3, but rather related to select 3rd party services which server owners can use in conjunction with PunkBuster to protect their servers" (thanks BF3 Blog). Further, Eurogamer notes that DICE is now looking to hire an "Anti-Cheat Administrator" to further their efforts at maintaining a fair playing field.

Love the cheat deniers.

I've seen so many obvious hacks that it's laughable. Lucky for me, I found a server with admins on almost 24/7, so cheaters get the boot in the ass quickly.

There's the obvious aimbots. There's the guy teleporting around the map knifing everyone. Sniper kills through solid buildings. The one I saw last night was guy who could not be killed no matter how much he got shot. (And he swore he wasn't hacking, even though it was completely obvious.)

I do agree though, a LOT of people scream "HAX!" as soon as someone kills them. I've been accused by someone who kept spawning and running up the same stairs. Every time he rounded the corner I shot him. HAX! HAX! Um, no, you keep doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. I don't have a cheat, I just pull the trigger everytime anything wanders into my scope. Derp.

And people cry a lot about you knowing they were coming. Dude, MAV? We have caught someone cheating just because they claimed they were using IR and you could see that he didn't have IR when he killed you, but mostly you kind of can't expect to hide with MAVs flying around.
