COD Ghosts bans provokes anger

By Alan Ng - Mar 17, 2014

COD Ghosts multiplayer may be one of the most addictive multiplayer experiences available on console, but recently we have also heard that it is also one of the most frustrating. Complaints are now coming in that COD Ghosts permanent bans are being handed out, some of which are to users who say they are completely innocent.

It’s not the first time we have spoken about Call of Duty bans, but it is the first time in which Activision appears to have taken action in such a mass wave targeting hundreds of users simultaneously.

While we support Activision finally taking strict action against those who use COD Ghosts cheats and hacks, unfortunately it looks like Activision has also banned those who are playing the game in an legitimate way.

Worst yet, we have been getting complaints from players who say that Activision and Infinity Ward have remained completely silent on the bans as well. We’ve been doing some digging on this and found the following evidence for you starting with one example from an affected user below:

There are also countless threads that have been opened on the official COD Ghosts forums on this issue, while we can also confirm that a petition has been set up accusing Activision of ‘theft’ for banning legit players after buying the Devastation DLC map pack – sounds a bit on the extreme side but it’s there to see.

As far as we’re aware, this is happening with different platform versions of the game, not just a single one. Activision has not made the mood any better either by responding to one complaint with the following statement:

“All bans are final and will not be reversed. Nor do we provide any additional information or specifics in regards to the ban.”
