Here is a video of well known racer Dannyboy having his Grid account hacked by some cheating scumbag. Part way into the video I'm chatting to Danny on xfire and explaining to him what's happening.

The fake Dannyboy was using a speedhack and hitting everyone from the track. The cheat car was indestructable.

Codemasters have still not addressed this issue, nor mentioned any likely patch to fix it. The community has already been waiting since early January for patch 1.3 (8 months+ and counting)

The same clone hack has been used on me, Dannyboy, datastreamdude, CAHEK, CometX70, DTM-fighter and many other well known racers who play Grid.

How has this affected us?

We get called cheats, speed hackers, crashers and rammers, to name but a few. All this comes if we can stay in a session long enough before being kicked.

We buy a game from Codemasters, somebody else download's a torrent.

We race clean and fair, they install cheats and crash us.

We tell Codemasters about it, they do nothing.

We get kicked from online sessions, the cheater hacks another account and continues his behaviour.

Well done Codemasters, very good customer support. Nice to know you look after your community...
