SCEA Cancels GT Academy Round 2 Due To Cheaters
Hey! You. Yeah, you. The one who thinks you can cheat and get away with it... Okay, you got away with it but you won't get away with it again.
The Gran Turismo Driving Academy is supposed to be all about precision driving, but we've been hearing reports of cheaters in Round 2 of the US GT Academy. Participants have complained about cheaters cutting corners and doing a bit of "wall-banging" on the Madrid and Rome courses. But instead of trying to figure out who did what and when, SCEA has decided to simply cancel Round 2. Everyone involved will just move on to Round 3, which has been delayed; it was supposed to start on February 14 but we're awaiting the next GT5 update. This update will "introduce more sophisticated corner-cutting and wall-banging detection mechanisms to prevent this type of inappropriate driving." It's probably the best course of action at this point.
In our estimation, Madrid should never have been used, anyway; that thing is ridiculous and not really one of our favorites. Let's take a turn on Nurburgring...won't really have to worry about "wall-banging" or cutting corners there; only fine driving will produce good times.
