Boosters banned in Battlefield 3

Gamers using a recently discovered "boosting" technique in Battlefield 3 may have woken up to discover their stats reset - or worse, their account completely banned.

EA and DICE have wielded the banhammer against "hundreds of offending acounts" in the game - and have promised to continue monitoring the rest of you just in case the issue pops up again.

Don't get the idea that DICE thinks you're all a bunch of dirty hackers - that's not the case at all.

We take cheating and exploiting very seriously in Battlefield 3 and want to make it clear that it will not be tolerated ... We’ll continue to be monitoring and taking action against the minority that doesn’t respect the integrity of the game.

The bans took place over all three platforms, and - hopefully - will make the leaderboards a little more representative of the skill actually being displayed in-game.

DICE have also discussed plans for a new patch, which aims to rectify some balance issues in BF3 - including adjusting the brightness of the tactical flashlights. Right now, they're awfully shiny, blinding gamers standing up to 10 metres away. That, unsurprisingly, isn't how they're meant to work.
