Call of Duty Ghosts Bans Players Who Weren’t Hacking or Cheating
The past couple of days, Infinity Ward and Activision have been shutting down a large number of hackers and abusers in Call of Duty Ghosts buy banning them permanently.
The majority of the bans were targeted at PlayStation 3 and PS4 players who were presented with the following error message upon launching the game:
This profile [xxxxxxx] has been permanently banned from playing Call of Duty: Ghosts online due to a violation of the posted Security & Enforcement Policy. For more information, visit http://support.activision.com/ghosts.
One of the biggest problems with this wave of bans from IW and Activision is that innocent players are getting banned due to a possible faulty anti-cheat system. One of the comments from the community forums read:
I was playing COD Ghosts with my son this morning and after a few round of domination I took a break and when I returned to play few more rounds with him my account was banned. He continued to play under his account until he wanted to take a break. He turned off our PS3. Just a little bit ago we went back on COD Ghosts and low and behold an error appeared on both our accounts, now stating our console is permanently banned.
So it’s apparent that not all of the bans from the last couple of days were legitimate and the possibility of getting the ban removed by an employee of Infinity Ward is slim-to-none.
