    COD players on PS3/PS4 being *targeted*, as you may notice we may have another *Call of duty Blacks Ops 2, ban wave* situation here. Those round of bans seem to target PS3 and PS4 users primarily, source stated.
    Activision decided to show their face to face those complaints of Angry banned gamers. Saying that this those ban waves have been places on casual players *who only put a few hours into the game, each week*, oddly enough they clame that they have a history of hacking or cheats.

    tcsdaniels (COD gamer) spout his venon over COD ghosts official board. Which got a perma banned without doing *nothing* just turning off his PS3. (lol)
    So even if this player got banned by mistake, Activision replied the following:

    “All bans are final and will not be reversed. Nor do we provide any additional information or specifics in regards to the ban.”

    Long story short, they owned a poor guy and ended with a perma-ban. While he/she stated that he was not hacking nor cheating.
    Strange?, nah. Actision being a douchebag yet again.

    Funny though, main target are PS3/PS4 users….

    To quote:

    Call of Duty: Ghosts developer Infinity Ward appears to have enacted a widespread round of bans that seem to target PS3 and PS4 users primarily. Activision has responded to complaints that the bans have been placed on casual players who only put a few hours into the game each week, and claim to have no history of hacking or cheats.

    Over on the Call of Duty: Ghosts forum, user tcsdaniels wrote, “I was playing COD Ghosts with my son and after a few rounds 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 and when we went back on about an hour or so later to see if my account was an error or something low and behold an error appeared on both our accounts, now stating our console is permanently banned.”

    He added, “If we got banned for simply playing in a hacked or cheated lobby (not knowing it was hacked or whatever) then that is not right and concludes that a thorough investigation is NOT conducted prior to a player and/or their console getting banned.

    “I hope infinity ward makes this right soon, we have been very loyal customers (FOLLOWING ALL THE RULeS) If we are not thoroughly investigated we will be sending weekly letters to Activision and infinity ward to please investigate our accounts and console.”

    This Reddit user also posted a complaint that echoed the sentiment above. The user claims to be a casual player with no past discrepancies on his account.

    Activision posted a response to the Reddit post that stated, “bans are put in place after an account has been investigated into. Any code of conduct violations WILL result in a ban. The user is responsible for all actions taken on the account.

    “All bans are final and will not be reversed. Nor do we provide any additional information or specifics in regards to the ban.”

      PC *hacking* or cheaters are other history. COD PC community is not so big as in consoles.
      I doubt they will take any action towards those PC users, thus is easier to hammer a console user than a PC one. In this case, maybe i'm wrong.

      Easy: If you are innocent and got banned anyway then return the game to the store for a refund and they lose the profit. Spread the words around.

      Arrogantvision don't care really in the end
      They could do a lot more - a simple check or monitor all "suspect" stats/accounts - but they don't
      Most hacked accounts stand out easily but they (Arrogantvision) wait until it is reported and see if they can be bothered to investigate
      COD has become a victim of its own success - but Arrogantvision have been taking players money and doing very very little to ensure their games are played fairly online
      At Ghosts launch very little recognition was given to the people who bought and played COD - or in other words the ones who lined Arrogantvision's pockets over the years

      Online game hacking is worse in my opinion than playing fairly with cfw ps3 - still hacking I know, but not ruining 11 other peoples game like hackers - but that is just my opinion
      Ghosts - not even 6 months old and ruined already - cheers Arrogantvision
      I think I will pass on the next COD and I'm sure I am not alone

      How are you suppose to know if a lobby is hacked or not?

      I can understand banning people for doing 'obvious' stuff e.g. modifying saves, CREATING hacked lobbies, etc. But when it's something that can be done accidentally I'm actually concerned about playing the game now (I only got this game to play against my brother, on the Vita COD I would create the game and we'd allow others to join).

      If the lobby is *infected* and you see erratic behaviour from those players or one **** kills/too much perks among other things.
      Just get out and done.

      But personally i think, this guy did something to get his account terminated.
      Even if his *innocent* he has to prove it but well...Activision clearly doesn't give a **** about this, so they will go for CFW users and *kill* sometime an innocent bystander which is not using any kind of moddifications and hammer it.

      I doubt a simple check will do the thing. There's a whole automatic process behind it, they don't have *3 wise monkeys* monitoring 24/7 online activity.
      Yes, sometimes someone will report and a *human* will take action from Activision side to sort out certain situation.
      But when it comes with *hackers/cheat0rs* if someone reports that user. Filters trough some kind of *grid* and if certain patterns match = Banned.

      I don't know how many reports they could receive per day or hour but i guess more than a human can handle.
      Not justifying their ways, like i said they don't give a ****.

      Online game hacking has a wide spectrum of different types of *cheat0rs* and obviously, cheats.
      Many purchase those hacks, others grabs a source and try to modify it using some tutorials over the net.

      Now, if the end user want a clean and fair gameplay. I doubt that will happen. If they get dead serious or some iron policy towards online hackin, more users will get affected by this. Because:

      1) They don't care.
      2) They will not investigate properly, takes too much time.
      3) COD hardcore games will continue to purchase DLC's and more COD games, well because they like it.

      With that criteria, they will continue to deliver mediocre content and people will buy it anyway.

      They don't care. Cheaters should be the only one's banned, but they're not. I legally purchased my PS3, I pay for my internet, and paid for my copy of Black Ops II. I was banned for playing it on CFW. CFW isn't illegal here, it's only unauthorized. I didn't cheat. There was no reason to give me an account ban and a console ban. F'k Activision/Treyarc, F'k Sony, and F'k anybody who agrees with them.

      They hate modified systems. Plain and simple.
      They don't care about cheats, they DO care about someone using a modified system while playing online.

      the only thing i know from is loadout modding/hacking, you mod your classes with ps3 cfw online and then you can use them with the ps4,
      since its the same cod profile, so you still cant mod/hack with a ps4 (yet)

      heres an example what i mean with loadout modding/hacking

      Lol, man. No problem. Sorry if i sounded like a ****** but it's the way i see this situation with Activision.
      I do hate hacked lobbies/infected and each thread that appears and if i'm online, i close them.

      Even if you don't bought those games, i'm no one to tell you what to do or not with your money.
      I mean this is not a piracy debate. It's your pocket and the one who says that NEVER downloaded a game from a torrent site, clearly is a hypocrite or lives under a rock.

      I have most of my games legit. I'm a legit user but from time to time, i like to make a *test-run* before purchasing it.

      Back on topic, i hate cheat0rs and in my stance against them is very clear.
      What i was saying that Activision in this case, doesn't mind *hackers*, they will attack the core of what they think is wrong.
      Not every user on CFW is a cheater, but for them seems that's better that way. I mean it's kinda logical from many standpoints.

      If a user is running a game on modified system, he/she is prone to modify something.
      So what's the best strategy for them?. Ban CFW at all costs but they aim to miss, OFW's got hammered too.
      As you may see, they system to spot a modified system from a one which has no modifications at all, is not working too well...

      I'm not saying I ha e never downloaded anything that way in the past to see if I enjoy a game cuz that's what I did with the first MW n a couple others but I have always enjoyed COD until now with all the hacks that are goin on n every time I turn around there is another lobby I'm in with it so how do I stop this kinda thing from me bein banned when it's almost every lobby? This is the issue they need to ready Fix it so ppl who actually pay for these games don't have issues or get banned cuz they ended in a server they didn't know. They say ban hammer but when I'm looking at stats it sure don't show they are doin anything

      All bans are final and will not be reversed. Nor do we provide any additional information or specifics in regards to the ban.”
      Uhmm, IMHO they should be obligated to provide information on why the account/console is banned.. Because if they ban you, there is a good reason for it, so they should be able to give that reason..
      If I was banned and I would live near one of their offices, I would certainly pay them a visit..

      When you get ban hammered by Sony, they don't specify why. They just terminate your account. Just error code and *account suspended*.
      Though Activision statement is worst than Sony's.

      If they don't provide additional info or specifics, there's no way to know why you got get banned.
      As you said, they should, but they aren't obligated to give that information. ****ty way of giving the finger to the one who actually purchased this game and got hammered by doing nothing.

      Something called *Consumer being too comfy*. If a Company delivers a mediocre product to end user and that user is comfortable with that and nobody *****es about it. They will continue to deliver the same product over and over again, prioritizing sales before quality.

      And guess what?, they will keep buying it. No matter what.
      Let's face some facts about COD:

      1) They have being using the same engine since MW3 or earlier. (Someone correct me if i'm wrong).
      2) Black Ops 2 was a total failure and was the responsable for a massive banwave.
      3) COD: Ghosts is nothing new, more of the same.
      4) They use always the same formula = Hollywood actor voices, Hollywood scenes, Awesome SP experience.

      When i bought BF3, i bought it not thinking about SP but MP.
      Even if EA managed to **** it up with BF4. There you have something that's not new nor innovative but practical.

      My point is, if COD fans already know that each time a *new* COD hit the stores is more of the same. Why keep buying it?.

      When I got ghosts for Christmas was pretty excited as I hoped they changed some things for this game as infinity ward was gone for awhile but I believe they use the same engine every time like they always do. I wanted another game a lot more but was never released due to the war n how ppl felt bot the game . I have only got the last 3 games n I found black ops n 2 were both garbage made by treyarch but the whole online is starting to make any of these games boring due to hacks n cheats . I won't be getting another COD as Activision don't care bot the ppl playing them or helping the community be a better environment anyway thanks for the insight

      Actually I think if actisucktion is making the accusation they have to provide the proof to support their claim. To make it easier for everybody they should just include their "proof" when they ban somebody. After being the guy was an idiot and spent $50 on the next rehash of COD the least this craptastic publisher can do is properly explain to the guy why this measure was taken.

      Of course I'm in 100% agreement with the systematic and utter destruction of online cheaters, but I don't believe there should be collateral damage.

      He spent that money but like most of us (me included) we rarely read terms and condictions BEFORE you start playing online with your new game.
      I will go that it's impossible to avoid collateral damage thus like i said since BO2 fiasco, they keep *hunting* CFW's.
      Now if a user which got hammered and shows proof:

      1) He bought the game.
      2) When he got banned.
      3) Under what conditions.

      Sure they could, investigate a little further and try to sort the situation out.
      Problem is that if Activision decides to disclose reasons why that guy got banned, hundreds will start to the same and will ask why the got banned. Even those who were cheating.

      I'm not OK with this attitude of them of not giving enough information on what you did wrong. Maybe they got tired of dealing with reports and decided to take this measure.
      I mean if this guy didn't do anything that was CLEARLY breaking those terms and conditions and he didn't mod or anything. If activision decides to gave him his account back.
      That will unleash a ****storm of more questions from their costumers.

      Eventually if Activision decided to drop their ****** attitude, they could make a section on their 1 millon dollar official site and hire real people instead of abuse of automated systems. Just to get a clean and clear feedback with their costumers.

      That's main problem that i see in this situation, yeah they hammered probably more OFW's that we can count. Question is: How many of them actually complained enough until they got a proper response and then how many CFW's they hammered?.

      It's crystal clear at least to me that they grew 100% intolerant towards CFW users and anyone playing online with CFW is cheating, that's their line of thought from what i've seen so far.
      They don't want another BO2 fiasco with a bunch of retards playing online with a pre-release, which in GHOSTS did not happend but sooner or later.
      But by the time Activision reacted, well this happened.

      I realize this is the reality of the situation, but I still can't bring myself to accept/excuse/agree with it. As you said:

      I think everyone should hammer activition with complaints until they do something akin to what you suggested and get actual people to do the bans.

      And what can I say about ToS/T&C? are we expected to hire a lawyer to be on call 24/7 everytime they throw a wall of text @ us? I bet you any of us could condense those 4 - 5 pages of drivel into an easy to understand half-page document, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO they need to make it confusing, extensive, annoying, etc to make sure we'll just skip over it...

      I also can't say that despite what it would say on the ToS banning a paying customer is ok/legal without providing proof upfront, or at the very least not providing it after it's been requested. If they are so against CFW users then just be sure you're targeting us... well actually them because while I have CFW I don't play online, and the last COD game I bought was the first Modern Warfare, and no I haven't even bothered to download any of the COD games after that.

      Lastly, if disclosing the reasons why they banned a paying customer causes them problems, then that right there should tell you there's something wrong, As I said before, the burden of proof lies with activition who is making the accusations... I wonder if they could get sued for slander????

      Incorrect Bans Reversed
      We understand some players were incorrectly banned over the weekend of March 15th and we have since corrected the issue. For those of you affected, please try playing again now. We apologize for the inconvenience.
      lol - that is funny - Arrogantvision look even more silly now with their recent bans:

      “All bans are final and will not be reversed. Nor do we provide any additional information or specifics in regards to the ban.”
      they forgot to add: Ergh unless we screw up again

      I realize this is the reality of the situation, but I still can't bring myself to accept/excuse/agree with it. As you said:

      This is not the first time that something like this happen. Those who got ****ed by Activision will ***** over the boards for some time (2 or 3 weeks or less) and then move on with it.
      Unless they bought the ULTRA edition of the game and they got hammered for no reason.
      Think they don't read those complaints over and over again but they take it as = *Ah another useless moron crying for help for a stupid ban*.

      Once you bought the game, you are FUBAR. That's true, nobody will waste his time to read for an hours all terms and conditions. Nobody does that.
      But hey, they are a Big Company after all. They have to cover their asses in case something like this happen.
      When you play online, you already agreed like it or not with those terms and conditions, which some might be slightly different because you are now online. Once you are online, they OWN you again.

      They need to make it confusing in order for you to not to READ. When you buy something less you want to do, unless is a book is READ.
      If it's a game, you start playing it right away. Reading NOTHING about their TOS.

      Happens with COD and any other Big company out there. More you pay....
      They target CFW's since what happened with BO2. With this situation is even more clearer than before that their stance towards CFW's is stronger than ever.
      Why?, because those who *cheat* could end messing up PS4 gameplay too.
      So we could add that special thing, nobody likes cheaters not even in PS3. How can be that tolerated on a next-gen console?.


      Nobody will sue their asses [MENTION=204892]malex[/MENTION] and if they want to sue, this will be long buried and forgotten.
      As always happens:

      1) The angry mob.
      2) They trow a tantrum over official boards.

      To finally forgot this situation, because doesn't worth the time. It's better to grab another ****ty of copy of this ****ty game because is *cheaper*, than keep *****ing at someone that will do NOTHING to fix the problem.
      If the end user doesn't have a minimal quota of self-respect as a consumer. Nobody will agree to make a move and like always happen, most of them forgets what happened and move on.

      By doing that, they will probably kill 20% of their online gaming community...

      They can even remove 80%. I do not see any fun to play with someone in goodmode.

      Irrelevant game - check
      Bad attitude company - check
      Brainless costumers - check

      All sides get what they deserve here, I don't see any issue. If, me, the [average retarded COD player/gamer] costumer, show to a company that they are my gods, I'm going to get treated like a mortal "second-grade-citizen" in the world of videogaming and my opinion is going to get censored and I can blame no-one but myself for that. It's a constantly re-occuring theme in the industry that gamers learn nothing from that hence they will be forced forever to be treated like that.

      I'm actually glad this is happening, in the long run it might mean the end of these stupid yearly updated games. THAT DAY that they will eclipse, intresting things might happen, just remember those words.

      And which Store exactly will take your Game back for a refund, much less for a Store Credit then?
      Well, if best buy then you get full refund.. Game Stop.. Good question.

      Really I thought most stores had a policy that went as far back as I can remember that you could NOT return opened Software (i.e. Game Cartridges this example. It was still the 80s after all), for a refund, and you could only at best replace a non-working copy for one of the same title, and system. At least that's how it was, at our local ToysRus back then. I find it kinda surprising that Best Buy would do so however. Give how much easier it is to allegedly copy these games now.

      Well, you shouldn't have gone online with a CFW at all.. that's the risk you take when using CFW and log into PSN....
