When Destiny 2 jumped from Battle.net to Steam in late 2019, the number of players who cheated apparently increased. As YouTuber Aztecross said in the previous video, "you look at the players and their record, they would go from 0.5 K / D to 2.5, 3.5 or higher; you're like," What the hell did they eat? ? & # 39; "According to Bungie, cheating increased by about 50% during the first four months of 2020. Since then, Bungie has shut down PerfectAim, the cheat seller, and teamed up with Riot to bring GatorCheats in the courts.
As anyone who plays Trials of Osiris mode every weekend can show, Destiny 2 still has a deception issue. But it is possible that Bungie will step up its efforts against cheating and, based on current evidence, being a well-known "content creator" will not protect you from the banhammer. BakenGangsta, another Destiny 2 YouTuber, discovered the hard way.
After being banned a second time, Baken protested his innocence, tweeting that "this is a bit ridiculous" and asking that "some bungie people pay attention to it. There's no way they can ban me when I see crazy cheaters play for months."
Bungie community leader Dylan Gafner responded: "The bans are not published without reason. The team has validated this action several times through scam detection and investigation." It was also related to that of Bungie account restrictions and ban policies page. It was a pretty soft response.
Nor was it enough for Baken, who continued to press his case, saying: "I would like to see proof of what he was doing that led to this ban, because at this time it is shit. "
That's when I'd like you to imagine people taking a deep breath. This public conversation took place on social media and a streamer with thousands of followers on YouTube and Twitch had just entered the hotline.
"Following," Gafner replied. "It took me a while to check this three times with the security team. We detected 2 accounts of your property using trick suites while playing Destiny 2 and banned 4 accounts in total. (Includes & # 39; This is our final communication on this subject. "
If you're unfamiliar with reading between measured tone lines adopted by community managers in situations like this, a Bungie staff member — UI / UX visual designer Elliott Gray — stepped in to dramatize the exchange. In the form of a meme. The moral is clear: no matter how many followers you have, if you get caught cheating the banhammer.
