107 Banned, 167 Suspended

107 Banned, 167 Suspended - MMORPG.com

Mythic Entertainment is the latest company to start waving their ban stick. Sanya Thomas, their Internet Relations Manager, announced on the Camelot Herald that Mythic has banned 107 accounts and suspended 167 others in response to a radar hack that had been circulating in the community.

There has been some silliness on the message boards about an “unbreakable radar program” that “Mythic can’t detect.” Last week we demonstrated that this was pure fantasy on the part of the cheaters. We permanently banned the accounts of 107 radar users, and gave out 167 suspensions. Look for plenty of new “I, uh, I quit! Yeah!” posts on a message board near you!

Read on for the rest of the announcement:

Based on data gathered from in-game appeals (players reporting cheaters), observation, and our toolset, we know we’ve acted against the vast majority of cheaters. Some will slip through, unfortunately, but we have no ethical choice but to err on the side of caution. Those we identified, but could not prove were cheating will remain on our watch list, and we will eventually get them.

Also, it’s with great happiness that we declare this round to be the last of the second chances. At one point, the perception had been expressed on the part of some of our players that one had to have radar to be competitive. As the steady decline in the number of radar users has shown, the reality is that this is no longer an issue. What IS an issue now is the perception that “lots of other people” cheat, although the data simply doesn’t support that perception. Therefore, since there shouldn’t be anyone left who believes that they just “have to have radar,” we now proudly return to the original policy of “one strike, you’re out.”

It is good to see companies working to keep the playing field even! Let us know what you think in the news comment below.
