It's coming: Bungie is getting the Halo 3 ban-hammer ready
Posted by XanTium | October 22 17:21 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From arstechnica.com:


If you're a cheater or an online trouble-maker in Halo 3, Bungie has it in for you. Last Friday they posted a message--more of a threat, really--saying that they know who you are, and they're not happy.

"There are those of you doing things you shouldn't be in Halo 3. Some of you have gotten a little too famous for your own good. This ain't a church and there is no redemption or salvation once you have been judged. Apologies are now officially too late to save you.

The storm approaches.
Love, Bungie"

There are several GLitches in the game but why ban just patch the damn glitches someone mentioned an example of warhawk for ps3 they are patching glitches not banning PEEPS for that .....to find out what are the glitches google SEARCH people

Now they just need to get rid of the people who join ranked and say "Anyone wanna get some achievements?"

They could also be banning people for being upleasant to play with too. I do have to say there are some real A**Holes on live these days.

At higher levels, various attacks like DoS attacks are becoming increasingly commonplace, as well as other means of attacking users' connections.

I've been bridged out of the game before it started, lagged out once the game is in progress, and so on (it's not my connection, and it's very hard for me to suffer a DoS attack as the bandwidth required would stop most users)

While it's not nice to cheat, it's an entirely different thing to abuse a glitch, and a whole different pile of shit to be banned for doing so.

Glitches are IN THE GAME, FIX THEM!
If I was banned for using a glitch in the game, I'd definitely be having my lawyer give Bungie a call. I paid for the game (That so called glitch is in), I pay for Live and I am entirely in my rights to play it on Live. If you don't want people using glitches.....FIX EM YOU LAZY BASTARDS!

With that said, I don't even own a 360, let alone Halo 3. I jut hate lazy developers that would rather ban people than fix their own mistakes. I'd sue.

Actually they'll be doing both in Warhawk just like I'm sure they'll do for H3.

Warhawk's 1.1 patch is hitting by the end of the month and along with it a new form of in-game judge and jury: The Arbiters.

First the patch info though, 1.1 looks to be mostly about dealing with ping issues, stability and stat problems. Hit the jump for all of the mumbo-jumbo. What I really find interesting is Warhawk's advent of the arbiter. The Warhawk arbiters are members of the online services groups in the US and Europe who will be keeping an eye on the leader boards, community stats and in-games, all undercover.

Essentially these men and women will be on the hunt for griefers and cheaters and will be armed with the ability to warn players or "call a player out to prove his or her skills." Their Judge Dredd like judgment can take the form of an email warning, forum post, a kick from a game, a full stat cleansing or banning. Pretty interesting idea for an online shooter I think, typically this is more something you see with MMOs.

There are a number of glitches in the game the game that if a player knows about they can be exploited for an unfair advantage

Standby cheating still works
DoSing your opponents works

And then there are those that boost in ranked maches by way of dummy accounts as well as the alternative language method.

on a whole though it's a lot better than Gears or Halo 2.

I'm guessing they're going after glitchers and rank boosters.

just because they haven't patched the game doesn't mean it's ok to shoot through walls, double melee or standby.

1. I HIGHLY doubt that Bungie is going after glitchers. It is soo much easier for them to push out an update to fix that stuff rather than deal with the rash of angry users who are banned or not banned or who are falsely banned, etc...

2. How are players getting the IP Addresses of opponents to DoS them? Are they threading their inet connections through their pc and getting ip connection info in real time or what? Are there really specialized programs for this stuff?

3. Where are they coming up with enough bw to dos a bunch of players

4. I wish Bungie could remotely fry those peoples' xboxen...

Anyhow...

What do you mean about bandwith for DoS attacks? I don't know anything about them, probably because it has never happened to me. Is having high bandwith good or bad or what?
