Microsoft Flexes Muscles With Second Cheater Sweep
Since the big shakedown that started all of this, back in March earlier this year, Microsoft has been selectively picking off individual Gamerscore cheaters here and there. And with each Gamerscore correction, with the help of our watchful readers, we’ve been trying our best to track both Confirmed and Unconfirmed Cheaters alike.
Today, Microsoft reminded everyone that it is still very committed in locking down these cheaters, and not just piking off a few random cheaters. So with what can be considered as a second major strike by Microsoft, our Watch List grows by over 100%. If the first wave of punishments was a shakedown, we’d like to look at this sweep as a crackdown.
Here is the list of Confirmed Cheaters that have been punished today (click on each Gamertag to view their Xbox.com profiles with the cheater banner):
- The Splinun
- Kawasaki 450f
- Essential Matt
- Rifle Doez Work
- Copper Nitrate
- Dr Unterrified
- Gambit 6996
- NSH x Smok3y
- FARD0 NL
- Ix UK Woody xI
You might recognize a few of these Gamertags, as we’ve reported them previously as Unconfirmed Cheates here at Xbox Cheater Watch. In all though, we are thrilled at this sweep – and at the huge statement Microsoft is making with it. So with that, we’re going to raise a glass to Microsoft and its preservation of the integrity of the Gamerscore system. We would also like to give special thanks to readers “Rance6” and “II Zeriam II,” for their keen and watchful eyes. Cheers!
