Finally, it has been made official: the ban hammer will come down on World, and it will come down hard. For many months the developer team said they were banning cheaters on a daily basis, but that isn't enough as World is plagued with cheaters and they just come back after the ban. So the developer team has finally put forward the idea of a more efficient anti-cheater measure, and they will very soon start to ban players on a large scale. Here's the official quote:
As you can see, both IGC and Speedboost players will be banned, so if you have invested real money in World but you also cheated, you will be banned. And that's the way it should be, really. Cheating is unfair for players who don't cheat; it ruins their game experience; it also ruins the cheater's sense of achievement because they are cheating. Overall, there isn't anything good about cheating... So, don't cheat. Just compete! Let's hope this will be Need For Speed: World's new slogan from now on.
