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.

It's infuriating that they accept "John's" justifications without push back.

If the same justifications were applied to professional sports, I'm sure you'd see the author's article go up in flames.

"Timmy can't compete in the world of professional football as he is a albino dwarf with a bone condition. To make up for it, he takes a loaded gun into every game and aims for the groin."

...

Kinda want to play Blood Bowl now.
