Bungie brings out the banhammer…

Last night Bungie post­ed on their forums that they were ban­ning peo­ple for exploit­ing cred­its. If you have seen any Lt. Col. a week after it’s release, they are not legit or they are and they have less of a life than this edi­tor. The way these peo­ple were doing it is in the video below.
WARNING! Do not use this video as a guide to get cred­its, you will get banned and stripped of every­thing. DO NOT USE!
The exploit dis­rupts the con­nec­tion and allows you to do a chal­lenge 20+ times in order to gain more cred­its. Bungie is in the process of hand­ing out over 15,000 bans, this process start­ing last night. This is what it includes accord­ing to Bun­gies forum post.
“We are in the process of apply­ing cred­it resets to approx­i­mate­ly 15,000 users who we have iden­ti­fied as the most egre­gious Chal­lenge Reset abusers.
A one day cred­it earn­ing ban has also been applied, most­ly to ensure that recip­i­ents receive an in-game noti­fi­ca­tion of the action tak­en.
As with any such mea­sure, we have tak­en the time to care­ful­ly select our cri­te­ria to elim­i­nate false pos­i­tives.”
Bungie is bring­ing the ham­mer hard with this in place and hope­ful­ly more game dev’s fol­low suit. Gears of War had a prob­lem with break­ing con­nec­tions and Epic nev­er fol­lowed it up and it con­tin­ued to break the game more than it already was out of the box. On the forum and com­ments posts that I have read peo­ple seem to agree with Bungie, except for the ones that think they are inno­cent in the wake of their ban­ish­ment. Cheaters will nev­er win and the sys­tem will bring you down. Games are a chal­lenge, they are here as a form of sto­ry telling and enjoy­ment, if you can’t play fair like the rest of us, dad­dy Bungie will come and take your toys away. If you got banned and are mad at Bungie for your lack of judge­ment then you can go return Reach and go wait under Moth­er Koticks mouth for the regur­gi­ta­tion know as Call of Duty:Black ops.

    fun­ny how peo­ple will put more effort into try­ing to cheat the game than play­ing legit!
    I guess that’s the amer­i­can way any­more get to the top first and screw every­body on the way

    What did they think was going to hap­pen? Real­ly? You find a way to cheat the sys­tem then you tell every­one and post a video on youtube show­ing how to do it.…stupid move. Kudos to Bungie for pulling out the ol’ Ban­ham­mer on this one
