Details Emerge About 5000 Day MW3 Ban
Yesterday, MP1st reported that a player was banned for 5000 days, or about 14 years. At the time, no details for the reason behind the ban were revealed. The only response was from Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling who confirmed the ban was real and stated, "If you see this message, it means you've been Permabanned (for something bad)."
So what did the user, who has since been found to be HotShot__01, do to get banned? Thanks to Twitter, we are beginning to get the details of what he exactly did to get banned.
HotShot has repeatedly attempted to contact Robert Bowling about his ban which he views as "economy boosting". Finally, Bowling has caved in and responded.
When asked to explain the ban, Bowling responded, "You would know better than I. What did you do?"
According to a slew of tweets, the banned user bought 6 PS3s and 6 copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to boost. As you know, boosting is a form of cheating, and is in fact what resulted in his ban. The funny thing about it is that even though IW has made it clear that boosting is cheating, the user still doesn't see anything wrong with it.
"I bought 6 copies of #MW3 to boost, and now im banned for 5,000 days a little to far?" asked HotShot.
In my opinion, no. It wasn't too far. You broke the rules. You were crazy enough to buy 6 copies of the game. And you cheated. All to level up faster? Why didn't you sit down and play the game like it should've been played? No one feels bad that you are banned so stop seeking attention from Twitter. The game is much better off without people like you.
