Microsoft Cracking Down On Shadow Complex Cheaters. Gamertags Beware!


Posted September 15, 2009 - By Jake Gaskill

Comic-Book Author Peter David Wrote Script For Shadow Complex

Gamers who have been cheating their way around Chair Entertainment’s brilliant Xbox Live Arcade title Shadow Complex could soon become intimately familiar with Microsoft’s Xbox enforcement team (Probably the coolest sounding name ever for something that geeky). Apparently, there are enough gamers out their violating the Xbox Live Terms of Service to warrant such a reaction.

To help curb the cheating, Microsoft's Major Nelson posted on his blog about what cheaters who are caught can expect for behaving in such an abhorrent way:

  • The player will be deleted from the Shadow Complex leaderboard.
  • The Xbox LIVE enforcement team will investigate individual players removed from the leaderboards for potential resetting of the user’s gamerscore. The reset would include all games, not just Shadow Complex.
  • Those accounts determined by the Xbox enforcement team to have their gamerscore reset will be branded on Xbox LIVE as belonging to a cheater, and this information will be reflected in the gamer profile, both on Xbox.com and in the Xbox Dashboard on the console.

Ouch. All because you had to cheat? Doesn’t seem worth it to me. I’m currently waiting to hear back about what exactly people are doing to ruffle Microsoft’s feathers so much, so when I know more, I’ll let you know.

Anyone here know of any possibly ban-worthy cheating going on in Shadow Complex?
