... beware. Via High Moon's Twitter:
Good to see they actually give a shit this time.
How long will they keep this up though.
I hope they're really careful with who they ban because sometimes my connection gets wacky and the game thinks I'm cheating and kicks me out of the match.
It kicks for cheating!
Kudos High Moon
This, ladies and gentlemen, is an perfect idea.
FYI the reason cheaters would be out of the gat already is that aimbots and typical hacks can pretty much be interchanged for any game using the Unreal 3 engine. So one aimbot can work for Gears, Transformers, SMNC, or any other game using the same engine. It's one of the weaknesses of using Unreal.
I hope we get VAC support for PC. Nothing better than banning a repeat offender from their entire games library.
Well its' flawed already. I was in a match today and got kicked for allegedly cheating. Let me tell you that I don't know the first thing about how to cheat on PSN. But I had back to back matches were I kicked everybody's ass because I am finally learning how to play MP in this game.
There will be more complaints of false accusations on cheating then getting the actual cheaters.

We just made a number of balance + weapon changes to the @FallofCybertron demo thanks to your feedback. We have started banning cheaters.
they stated on FB that they've begun booting the cheaters and balancing the classes and weapons. they also said they'll be raising the max demo level to 10 on August 10th
Major props to High Moon for doing all this.
Right on High Moon, right on!
I'm sure there will probably be a few bumps along the road but I'm sure they will get it right, eventually.
I didn't see anything saying it was level 10 that they'd up the cap to.
Yes, but I was lagging and got kicked for "Suspected connection tampering" even though I did nothing.
It only kicked for tampering, it can't detect glitches. I don't think. Unless they have 500 people in their headquarters monitoring matches and banning cheaters.
Thanks for the quote! Glad they're adjusting "loadouts", which implies they may not only tweak weapon power, but switch around the weapons entirely!
I sent them an email about that, I got kicked for the same reason. I wonder if they just kick the whole match/session or just individuals? Either way it's flawed because people who aren't tampering are getting kicked and I suspect that people who don't cheat will be banned soon.
I believe the kick is in place due to you needing the lag to perform the ability swap glitch and there was a couple ways to create that lag, so the kick probably insures you don't go doing that.
Now that you mention it, there was a significant lag occurring during that match. I found myself going back and forth between frames on the second floor and frames on the first floor then things got better and then I got kicked. I am curious if they abort the entire session.
