I had first ban message "Your account has been forever banned from call of duty black ops 2" and now he tells me "You are Vac Banned etc."
I want to know what is the difference between the two ban ?????
Both bans have the same effect so there is no difference in what they actually do, Ie. You're banned from playing BO 2. The scenario is Treyarch bans you from their servers, as they run the games servers and not steam. (Which is the opposite of IW and SH games for MW 3). Treyarch then reports you to steam and your steam account then gets updated with the lovely Bans on record tag. Which is visible to all others steam users. Basically it's a branding as a means to out those whom have been caught cheating, in order to act as a deterant!!!

The Ban hammer hitted me today for some reason lol. I didn't even play since the newest patch. But to be quite honest, I dont care. I managed to get at least prestige 1 so I consider it 100% completed. x3
Treyarch is defiantly being heavy-handed in handing out the bans. It's very black or white any difference in the games code and it's an instant ban! They have claimed that they have banned thousands of players already!!!
I was up to prestige 6 and was looking forward to the double XP weekend, but then the ban hammer put paid to that. The game is so full of bugs any-ways, we were more like beta testers. I bet that they never had a beta test for the PC version too? When MW 3 first came out there were over 2000 players on HC TDM at peak times. I never saw more then 1000 playing the same in BO 2. I don't think the game will last that long, especially as they are limiting the amount of HC game modes as well. There's already threads on the official forum's with lots of complaints about all of this. It looks like 3arc's after sales service is not customer friendly. Their attitude may change once the first map pack is released and sales are way down their on expectations???
I was thinking about re-buying it, but I'm in two minds as I don't really wanna give em anymore of my hard earned cash!!!
