Did you Cheat in Americas Army? Traitor.
« on: 18 Jan 2005, 22:22 »

The following was written by America's Army executive producer, Phil DeLuca, in what i must assume to be the offical fourms. It has since been removed, for obvious reasons....

Quote from: executive producer Phil DeLuca

Some of you (and clearly the bad guys are among them) don't always remember that this game, and all accounts and derivative products, are the property of the United States Army. When you tamper with the game, not only are you breaking the EULA you're misusing Army property - and, worse, you're misusing US Army computer programs and equipment.

"Tampering with software and servers owned or used by the Army is cyber crime.

"In the early 1940's, Japan learned an important lesson - "let the sleeping giant lie." We may not react swiftly, but when we do it's with unstoppable force. The Army has partners that deal with cyber crime as a matter of course. These include not just various Army IT departments, but also the Department of Justice, the Secret Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

"It's going to get uncomfortable for some of the bad guys, but you know what? They brought it on themselves. Knowing this anyone who continues to be bad is just plain foolish. Keep trying, though. Sooner or later the bad guy will realize we've known about him for a while... and by then it's too late.

"Allow me to speak directly to the bad guys for a moment: When you get banned, know that we know and have records showing you were doing something that's a violation of terms of service, breaks your EULA, and also happens to be against the law. We know who you are, and can track down where you play from. We have incontrovertible proof you did something illegal. The Army is angry, and we're coming for you.



Over-react much?

Holy shit, that knee-jerk clocked in over mach 1.  This is why my thoughts about the existence of the game have always been "leave gaming to the gaming industry and leave blowing up third world countries to the army"

Either way, it's hilarious. Although I hate to be on the same side as those who say "Well, if you aren't breaking the law you don't have to worry."

It's even more hilarious because it gives more power to people who are just cheating.  Sure it's tampering with softwere, etc etc but it almost seems like a given that when a game is released for computers someone with "l33t skills" is going to change something for their benifit.  I like the direction that some companies take of supporting mod communites.  

I really have lost and forgot the point and am just posting this because I took the effort to type it.  Heh.

I hate cheaters so I'm with them,  It gets so frustrating when you have to sit there and deal with pre-pubescent (and some post) fuckwits who are hellbent on ruining the gaming experience for everyone else, just so they can look good.

I'll assume you mean the Army and the Air Force. Because the Navy will rock your socks off.
