Major Nelson has posted a stern warning to those who cheat to win in Shadow Complex. In his message to the Shadow Complex community, he said that in an effort to enrich the gaming experience of players, they will be enacting strict measures, even if it means "deleting leaderboard information generated by those who try to compromise our game."
The initial steps that the team will be taking to those player accounts verified cheating are the following:
- 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.
He finishes by reiterating the XBL team's and Chair Entertainment's firm stand on providing a level playing field, as well as the best overall game experience on XBL.
