    Hello All,

    At LG we are doing everything in our power to prevent cheating, 2nd tagging and all other forums that tamper with the integrity of our leagues. One of the hardest challenges has been on the Sony side since Sony won't give us an oAuth System like we have for xbox. Its extremely disappointing and frustrating because getting a system like this would be our front line to prevent a lot of the cheating that happens at LG.

    We've made some major changes to our PSN verification system to catch people. I won't go into all the under-the-hood stuff we've done but i can insure you that this week has seen the biggest improvements into the system we can possibility do. Most of this is because we found a "public" Sony API we can use. This API gives us basic sony account info.

    One thing we've added that effects everyone at LG, is we can now verify if you actually control the psn account you say you have. This system is the LG "Playstation Account Verification" system, where we generate a random 8 char word that you can put in your PSN "About Me" that we can read. If it matches, you are verifed. To verify your account goto the Playstation Account Verification System under the info tab.

    Only verified accounts will be able to signup for PSN leagues going forward, Also if your account is verified you can free change your username now without restrictions. The restrictions where in place because people where changing their psn to tags that weren't there's just to get a shorter name.

    You only need to verify accounts once. I am sorry we all have to go through this to catch cheaters.

    Thank you

    We are going to grand father it in, So any new season of any psn league you have to be verified. But we aren't going to pull people off their s4 roster
