Shadow Complex Cheaters Targeted For Bans, Gamerscore Wipes

Illustration for article titled Shadow Complex Cheaters Targeted For Bans, Gamerscore Wipes

Chair Entertainment may approve of players sequence-breaking Shadow Complex, but it does not condone cheaters who "compromise our game." Microsoft's Xbox Live team will be going after dishonest Shadow Complex players, banning them from leaderboards and deleting their Gamerscores.


An official statement from Chair and the Xbox Live team sternly warns verified Shadow Complex cheaters that punishment is incoming. Beyond leaderboard deletion, that means a Gamerscore reset across all games and a public outing as a cheater on and the Xbox 360 dashboard.

The statement laments that cheaters "have not only violated the spirit of the game, but they have also violated the Xbox LIVE Terms of Use." Which could mean a virtual slap on the wrist. Might be a good time to brush up on exactly what those terms are, kids.

A message to the Shadow Complex community [Major Nelson]


Paradox me

I remember the good old days where you could cheat in your own games and no one gave a shit.

That's not to say some of this isn't warranted, falsely sticking yourself on the top of the leaderboards int's cool, neither is cheating for achievements I suppose, but to brand them a cheater for everyone to see and remove all their gamerscore from other games?

C'mon now, that's a bit silly in my book.
