VAC: Banned

So I've been banned from playing MW3 which is fine, I was cheating all that and I expected to be banned, I just wanted to enjoy some of the fun that all the other cheaters were obviously having hahah....

my question is, can I buy another copy of the game on the same account and be able to play online or is the ban on my account? I don't want to pay $60 for the game then find out I can't play it...

No that isnt possible.

You need to create a new account and purchase the game on that new account. Make sure all cheats are removed. If you are not 100% sure about all traces being removed you may want to consider a full format of the pc and reinstall your OS.
