Following Infinity Ward Invitation, Streamer receives Warzone Ban.
Hackers plagued the warzone for several seasons. Many continue to fall through the net despite the best efforts by Raven Software and Ricochet anti-cheat. Many hope that another ban wave will occur as Season 4 Reloaded nears.
Many streamers are showcasing their talents to a large audience. Unsurprisingly, some accuse them of using hacks when they drop high numbers of kills during a match.
After several recent accusations, Warzone streamer FIVEBYFIVEx was permanently banned. This occurred shortly after Infinity Ward invited him to play Modern Warfare 2 earlier.
Accused Warzone Streamer Banned
Even though there is no evidence that the streamer used any hacks, it seems the anti-cheat sees things differently. They received a shadow ban a week before the “Perma ban,” which allows suspect cheaters to take on other hackers.
FIVEBYFIVEx claims they are innocent, saying they have “never cheated or VPN’d, unlock tools, camo glitches, (or) anything.” The ban was imposed after mass media reported about the streamer’s 40 kills and “couple (30 bombs”) in a very short time.
The ban was issued at a poor time. Infinity Ward has invited streamers to obtain Modern Warfare 2 before its release.
FIVEBYFIVEx allows anyone to check their computer for hacks and to see the most recent gameplay. This will prove that they aren’t cheating.
Although it is unclear what caused the ban on streamers, Activision and Raven Software have failed to provide any evidence.
