          Sad but the only things you can do is leave the server and report them ing ame, plus on Steam and on Activision support page:

          Activision.com Customer Support

            believe me...I do that all the damn time...they need to put their own people in here to see what is going on for themselves how bad it has gotten over the last few weeks....will not play for a while and see if they do anything about it...might play again after next fix is applied for all our complaints ...will keep up with forums for updates and fixes but think that's it for me...it has been fun everyone...good luck

              half the time its bans for other games, not everyone is banned from BO2. Steam does allow you to play other games

              • Re: players tags show results of ban

                we know...cheat in one game should result in lifetime ban...not just that game...maybe then they would think twice, until then they will cheat and hack away....as long as cheats are allowed to be sold by the industry..players will buy them and ruin it for legit players...they need to close down the cheat sites....that would be a start...they are infringing on the company and players rights to play a fair game

                    Well, you do the exact inverse (I'm no Minnesotaburns fanboy), but he expose cheaters all the time and he get his xbox ban like every week or so now lol, but the actual hackers don't really get that kind of punishment. Anyway, they should close pornsite since young audience, satanic rock songs should be banned, religious site should be closed down, list can goes out a long damn way................. As long as the programming will not be perfected (and will prolly never will) there will always be someone to crack the code, and share it with other person. You CAN'T do **** against hackers, they will still be there... Just make a tons of money off youtube with your vids and you can buy a ps3-xbox every week like Burns... change ip... I never saw an hackers, but i bet they are a pain in the butt... Still you can rage all you want, this can't be dealt with, there is nothing to be done against it, just like ppl that copy music or movies or whatever, sometimes 1 will get caught, but the rest will still do it... I know it sux, but get used to it, cause Ghosts GONNA be hacked, and that wouldn't take too long i'm sure of it, really sad but nothing can be done

                    First, by far the worst single policy that I know is even WHEN (100%) 3arch (VAC) catches Cheaters in BO2 they do NOT get the label on their Steam accounts as VAC Ban -> http://community.callofduty.com/thread/200761118

                     

                    You're never going to catch all or for that matter even most of the Cheaters so I came-up with this fix -> http://community.callofduty.com/thread/200703909

                     

                    I still have a few more ideas to add to it, but in general good luck finding a clean match and with no players with prior's (VAC Ban). Now while not all cheat with VAC Bans in BLOPS2 many do and even if someone is in the gray who trusts them.

                     

                    To answer Necaross's question each copy is tied to a Player's Steam account so the game bad, pff cannot call it a VAC Ban, is Permanently Banned from BO2. There is no Console Ban or MAC Address Ban so in the time it takes to download the game many cheaters simply update their cheats and are playing literally in a matter of minutes.

                      guess its time to just buy games for single player only...lol...no cheats there.....just play the game over and over and try to have fun....sad cause pc was taking off really well til all the hack and cheater sites came out...will go back to playing Eve-Online I guess......have great community there...and we actually talk to each other without a bunch of spoiled children with their foul mouths getting in the way

                          The 'problem' or problems since there are many, is that Legit players get pissed-off and either quit the game (I get it) or they choose the, excuse the wording, go to the Dark Side and purchase Hacks to be competitive in the game.

                           

                          Basically what you have left is Pros, Semi-Pros, Uber Tryhards (me), and yep the POS Hackers playing this game on the PC. What's made things worst, rubber bullets & Teleporters, is the under 'powered' server centers and to a degree oddball Lag Comp fixes.

                           

                          So I don't have a clue what the answers are for you or to fully remedy all of the assortments of problems. For now the game on the PC is broken and quit frankly has been from the get go and exasperated by players in mass leaving for a variety of reasons (low player count).

                              I'm now pretty sure you can play (with cheats) over 700 hours without to be concerned. I just met an hacker prestige 0 level 40 in game and we discussed a bit.. He added me on steam, trying to prove he was not hacking. So he gave an other steam account to show me he was used with this game on this one and invited me to play .. His other Steam account is VAC ban *sigh* .

                              Told him it was just another proof he was hacking, so he "loled" and told me he was banned on MW3 on this account but he can play without problems on BO2 (over 700 hours). Told him I'll report him on this one too. He answered it's because folks like me that report hackers that COD games are dying (because of reports -_-'). Anyway he assured me he won't be banned on BO2 in any of his Steam accounts unless he is bad luck and told me "HF to make me ban lol" ... :/

                              I blocked his Steam..

                                  So cheaters know what they do and they also know they wont be banned immediately when using cheats.. Looks that Activision failed on this game as they failed on older ones with cheaters. The only difference is now cheaters looks like skilled and/or lucky players unless they aim too much through walls and make themselves too much suspect. Anyway, the guy I caught (who "semi-"admitted he was hacking on at least 2 Steam accounts with BO2) looked like a crazy quickscoper sniper and a deadly accurate handgun player, but in reality it's just an aim-assit + WH...pff..

                                    I've run across players, rare as it is, that have no qualms and emphatically stating that they are indeed hacking, and what is anybody going to do about it! I know the report button is no different than the Staple's 'That was easy' button i.e. useless and even reporting players on Steam ditto.

                                     

                                    Boutique and Custom Hacks rarely if ever get detected and I've seen Player's here who were lackadaisical about updating their Hacks get banned with > 1000 hours begging for forgiveness and their accounts unbanned from BLOPS 2 --- F'em!

                                        it's a shame, Activision argues hackers are banned within 48 hours, but how much time to catch/verify them ? Is there a big queue ?

                                        It's why I ask for a public detailed ban list since a while. I'd be glad to see statistics.

                                            Personally I don't care about a complied list, but I'm very angry that banned BO2 players aren't getting a VAC Ban showing-up on their Steam accounts. To date it's been stated that there have been 'hundreds of thousands permanently banned from Black Ops II.' I would assume that's across all platforms.

                                                I'd like Steam/Vac to show what games they are banned for and the reasons why. That's my Opinion and yes Treyacrh and Vac should work together to  sort it out

                                                  Yes it's for all platforms I guess. But you should care about the list since they do not show on Steam. Earlier (older FPS), ban lists were public and all servers were running fine like that. Now, all is hidden because of blablabla policy reason..

                                                  I do not like that.. I do not want to debate another time but why allow players to report suspect players so..?!

                                                      Yes on Steam you're damn right I want them published as Vac Ban's --- I just don't need a 'list' nor the reasons.
