On BF3 Cheating

There's an interesting article on Kotaku on cheating in multiplayer games, focusing on malfeasance in Battlefield 3, DICE's military shooter sequel. Well, malfeasance is our term, the article takes an almost sympathetic tone, characterizing the cheaters it specifically portrays as regular players, and relating their complex rationalizations of how they are somehow more justified than garden-variety cheaters. The article also takes a surprisingly informative approach to details on this, choosing to provide links to cheat providers, prices of various exploits, and even de facto reviews of their effectiveness.

The more obvious "100-0 K/D" cheaters are actually pretty rare as people have to pay monthly fees for their hacks these days (comedy gold) so they're often smarter with them.
What the fuck is wrong with competitive games these days? What kind of enjoyment can you get from winning an unfair game?

Well, when you're 14/280 lbs you'd be surprised what counts as entertainment.

I can say that because I was 14/280 lbs back in 1991. Once I worked myself to a point I can enjoy mental/physical challenges I do.

It's the nature of the beast OTOH other developers can/do stay a step ahead of most of the cheaters out there, but not DICE/EA.


And the more I hear about cheating in BF3 the more I blame DICE. They seem to take an attitude of simply not giving a single fuck! I mean, with this kind of support who is willing to buy more games from them if they'll get so many cheats it kills fun but DICE won't move anything against them?

Didn't DICE say before BF3 got released they would take an aggressive stance on cheating? DICE is killing its own game and their own reputation on the PC.
