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.

You have anecdotal evidence that there are lots of "subtle" cheaters and I have anecdotal evidence that there are not lots of "subtle" cheaters.

The cheats exist and are a binary thing, it's not opinion. What percentage of the player base using them is anyone's guess but that's not the point. People want cheating addressed as much as possible, it shouldn't be handwaved away with some silliness about player skills. Cheating will always exist in some shape or form but right now Dice allows far too much client side control which makes it too easy for these things to exist at all, subtle or otherwise. It is a design issue that needs to be addressed regardless of how good the player base is at this or other unrelated games.

People moan about lots of things in BF3 that don't bug me either but that doesn't mean they aren't valid problems in the game.
