@ShadowbaneR said in i want hacking addressed:
If someone who plays a fair amount claims they do not notice cheating or state that it is “rare” meet one or more of the following conditions:
1.) Head in Sand. Close your eyes and the monsters will “go away”. See it but don’t want to believe it.
2.) Don’t know what to look for in the slightest or simply do not care even when explained to them.
3.) Appeal to authority type. Think there cannot be rampant cheating because they are a TB/EPIC Fan.
4.) Unless they see a huge showcase of hours on hours of recorded footage, it doesn’t exist… and even if someone presents the footage, it still doesn’t exist because the goal posts just moved.
5.) Thinks there cannot be cheating because the game is new.
With that said, Yes, the netcode issue with making Chiv 2 resemble a 2001 title NOT a 2021 title does cause some wonky behaviour that can also resemble cheating. However, the stuff I clearly noted and explained in this thread is far more blatant and will show as consistent from that same player(s). A netcode/latency issue will not be any bit consistent from the same opponent. The engine isn’t new, and it utilizes the absolute worst Anti-cheat in the industry. An anti cheat well known for having completely free cheats bypass undetected. I can even name quite a new titles which utilize EAC and have flagrant cheating, even 2 in particular, stuff that allows cheaters to completely take over servers and use admin commands.
Yeah this is non-sense.
I’m level 93 currently, top of the scoreboard every match and play in a small region where you get familiar with the standout players. I would notice if there were any exceptional players in my matches that were acting strange and I’m just not seeing it.
I’m not denying that there could be the odd cheater running around flying under the radar not putting up huge scores, but there are definitely not blatant rage cheaters ruining matches in my region. These claims of rampant cheating are most likely accusations from new players that don’t know no better. Heck I get called out in game all the time by players that simply don’t know how to play.
So if there is actual proof of rampant cheating going on, I’d like to see it and would also like it brought to TBs attention. Is that too much to ask?
