I agree 100%!
It´s been exactly what I´ve told to Activision-Support and IW-Enforcers already weeks ago!
Another way would be to build in an "XP", "Points" per Match/Minute limit that would prevent automatically that hacks like we see now can succeed!
Further step would be to implement a tool that records player "skills" and "behaviour" in the matches - so cheaters, boosters and even hackers could be enlighted to the developers easily! (for example: if someone is reaching the "maximum possible" score per minute as average over a fixed time he must be a cheater, hacker or booster...)
The links must be there. I´m sure.
What do you think?
So Forumites, I've come to the conclusion that the reason there are so many Hacks, Cheats, and Boosters in video games is that the punishments for doing so aren't that bad.
If you exploit the game your IP address should be recorded and BANNED! PERIOD.
There shouldnt be a second chance in banning. It sends out a bad message, that we "allow" it on a first time offense. But how many people do it a first time? Thousands!.
you are going to have to purchase an entire new unit in order to play?? I truly and honestly believe that would cut this crap that we have to experience in half.
I went further and state that Sony systems should just ban the IP address. But this would also cause harm, banning the console from the COD servers.
Great post rid...hopefully its not removed...
You know what? Screw it. This forum is full of things that should be removed, the DEVS of CoD should hear our ideas and what we think should happen. I am sure that 95% of gamers (hopefully a higher percentage) despise cheats, hacks, exploits, boosters, whatever you want to call them and something needs to be done.
So DEVS I ask you, why do you put up with them?? The gamer community doesn't, but you seem to roll over and give people second, and third chances at playing your game.
I encountered a guy the other day that was on his second ban, on his third account... Does this make sense?? He isn't stopping his actions, only creating new accounts to stay one step ahead of the game. Now, if this guy received an IP ban for his FIRST offense, he'd be crying, screaming to the community, and it would be quickly known that you cheat on our system, you don't get to play. End of story.
We run into some issues with this though. You can't just create a new account on Xbox, you actually pay for it. So what we run into is a fairness issue between the two consoles
I don't think their should be an IP ban, my brother plays online and if he boosts on his PS3 then I shouldn't be punished for it. What would be nice is a humiliation factor:
Special Emblem, title, and clan tag
No leveling up
Can only use the 5 default classes
