First my son tells me that he is banned. I look at his email and sure enough, there was a email from SOE. Before I wrote the support I done a scan, nothing.

My son swears up and down that he never even done it. I believe him without question. So he is banned for 3-4 days, without him doing anything.

 

I am only putting this here as a warning to you guys. I know some of you may be skeptical (hell I would too). But we as a family are getting rid of our SOE accounts.For a company to do this and show no proof or even say what he was doing, is a company I will not support any longer. We both were subs...........

 I don't believe this really, I've seen young kids who know full well how to cheat in a game. I also find it funny that your son was banned from DCUO while when I played the game when it originally opened and fully exploited it.

 I originally found and exploited the pistol glitch. I was able to take out raid bosses in seconds with it and I used it in PvP while being able to annihilate entire teams at once. The funniest part of it all is that I had even talked to the GM's about it and they for some apparent reason allowed me to exploit the game. I even knew they were there because I killed a GM in the Heroes base. They then turned on god mode and turned invisible while myself and a guildie were running dungeons and randomly appeared in the middle of it. We had a nice little chat and they said it was fine. They were actually curious about the cheat. I explained to them that with the use of a USB controller and using a J hook action on the joy stick while doing the sweep attack proc'd the ability to hit 250+ times in a single attack versus the normal 5 times in a single attack.

 I didn't even get banned for breaking their EULA and TOS and the knew full well that I was doing the exploit. Which is quite surprising to hear that your son all of the sudden was banned for hacking. I'd personally check for the common things like cheat engine. These programs are one of the easiest to pieces of software for your son to get a hold of.

I hope you don't take such an oblivious approach to all your parenting methods.

I was using Netbus to hack friends computers and cheating all over the place in Counter Strike when I was 10, and that was 15 years ago, when technology was far less accessible to 10 year olds than it is today, before you could type the question into Google for your answer. 

I had also discovered online porn and how to hide my access from my parents, how to cheat on homework, and chat rooms via the internet by that age. Just because he is a good kid, doesn't mean he isn't impervious to the temptations around him, especially considering how easy they are to obtain.

You were someone on a computer. My son plays football, Xbox, takes guitar lessons (why I have no idea). But he or his friends have no clue about computers, none.  I understand being skeptical, i really do. 

 

It doesn't matter anymore. He is pissed because I view it like the company called him a cheater. So he isn't going to play anymore and neither am I (SOE games).  My intent was not sympathy or a SOE bash. Just watch out, simple enough. There are many good MMOs out there to take this kind of crap, imo. I will call them Tuesday to file a complaint if it helps or not, I have no idea!

 

 

 I could easily find a hack for a game of my choice and follow their simple steps on how to install it. Step-by-step, kids today don't have any issue obtaining any information about this. I would also not disregard your child's intelligence with computers. They might actually know more than you think.

I have a 9-yr old nephew, not much younger, who is years away from understanding anything about hacking or getting on to porn sites, so there are some kids who are not wise in the ways of the world yet. 

That would involve admitting to SoE that a 10 year old was using the account, which is against the EULA and would probably result in a ban anyway.

The ESRB is not a law. It's not mandatory for people to follow it. It's there to show people what to expect when purchasing said title.

I would ask sony in a ticket, or call them if they have a phone and ask them for details about the ban if they refuse to provide it then yes I would quit sony.

Sony as a service puts consumers last as when they target George Hotz, and compromised millions of user accounts knowing what would happen because of their mistakes I was a sony customer myself for years, but I disagree with their entire gaming service now its complete crap.

EverQuest 2 wont even run properly on my pc, its my pc at fault, same thing with Planet Side cant max out graphics or lag, but any other game works perfectly yeah I don't know but its only sony's games that work like crap I would say from experience DCUO the only game that would run decent although I quit because after awhile it gets very boring constant repeating, limits when I should be able to learn all ability and power on a single character and freely change them out.

While Sony has the right to ban, an account for any reason as per TOS, they usually have very bad customer service, now another thing I can think of besides your son using hacks, its possible that he accidently used an exploit or glitch in game which again isn't his fault maybe he didn't know  or know how to report bugs as he is only 10 and sony banned the account for 4 days again sony's fault for allowing the glitch in the first place.

I would do a complete scan on the computer, and just check for hacks just in-case and also consider the fact that the account could have been compromised, change email/password just in-case.

OP  7/23/13 2:22:36 PM#66

After looking and looking at my son's computer, no hacks, no nothing other than Steam, World of Tanks/Planes and Origin. 

And I have been looking at the DC forums and there are way too many people talking about getting banned for no reason.

My son was telling me the truth.

I am only posting that if you happen to get banned you have two choices. One is to deal with it, the other is to quit.  There is nothing you can do , so please don't waste your time.

Also you may not have done anything wrong to get banned. I have no idea what SOE's software looks at when flagging a account. But if you or your son gets banned at least by DC universe, take it easy..................

I believe your son did nothing wrong

my 8 yr old nephew got banned in GW2 for unknown reasons - he appealed it w my assistance and got unbanned

 

I think wrongful bans are very frustrating, especially when the game company doesnt spell out what you did wrong

I remember I was a computer whiz at the age of 11 and using my Commodore Vic 20 and making games out of machine language.

So could your son be hacking a game at the age of 11, it's possible, but just playing devils advocate here and not accusing your son of anything.

Just know even at 11, we are pretty damn smart as well to figure things out.

I was also banned and IDK what the hell a "Hack" is or even how to get one.

FYI, I was banned from DCUO PS3 version.

I got a letter the other day from SOE stating they were sorry for the inconvenience and gave me 1000 Loyalty Points for my trouble and gave me a free month of Legendary.

Dosent make up for it but it's a start.

It pays to fight back. I will NOT be quitting the game or SOE games because of a mix up.

ha!

 

was thinking the exact same thing. i think many people on this site are the kind of people who totally obey the rules, do what they're told at work, etc. but secretly they fantasize about being a total scumbag.

 

so when someone may or may not have acted like a total scumbag many users here can only assume that this person did what they personally have been fantasizing about for so long.

I think the problem is the OP posted it on a gaming site where most people have been gaming forever so they most likely knew all the cheats at a young age. I was a different kind of nerd back then though strictly  pen &paper rpgs. I never even owned a computer until 99.

This thread is hilarious.  Apparently the majority of people in this thread were geniuses as kids and breaking into top secret installations.  As a 10-year old I had no idea how to do any of this and expect very few kids do either.  As I said before,  i would sooner believe a concerned parent than people here claiming this kid is a hacking genius and must be guilty.

just because he is your son , dont remove the fact that he cannot cheat or use ingame glitch. we always tend to forget that even our own kin can be something we are not and have always tried to teach otherwise. also to the guy above and person who +1 it. dudes you need to realize that world is so much different today than when i was 10 for example, even my daughter who is becoming 4 can use internet and go to play games on for example some children based websites. so easily 10 year old knows how to use glitches and hacks.

Just to explain to you OP that had your son used a "real" hack he would have been perma-banned faster then you can say quality time.

 

Most likley your son or one of his friends used some of the more common exploits the float around in game, especially as he is at that age where winning is very important. Ofc as an exploit is within the game you will not find any traces of it on the computer it self.

 

But i think you (if this is a true story... I somehow hope it is for your own sake) very much underestimate your sons ability to digest info, i guess that you will be the same parent that in a few years think your son does not surf porn and wanks, and will be in complete denial once he start drinking.

 

Any way it is a lesson in life for your son and a fairly good one actually as it teaches him many things.

This have been a good conversation
