Anyone of whose every played any competitive game online knows that feeling whenever an opponent’s luck seems a little too good. Unfortunately for PlanetSide 2 beta players, that feeling is all too real right now, as an aimbot program is currently clearing out their servers.
PC Gamer got a hold of Sony’s Senior Public Relations Manager, Taina Rodriguez, who said “SOE takes player use of in-game cheats very seriously.”
Rodriguez also said SOE would be “aggressive” in tracking down, and banning, cheating players. “Players who use cheats ruin the gameplay experience for the entire community, and SOE will continue to be extremely aggressive in detecting and banning players who use cheats.”
No official plans were laid out, but for the sake of the integrity of PlanetSide 2, we can only hope that the cheaters get discouraged early on.
