Hackers Ruining Battlefield 3 Servers... Already?

GB : We are receiving a lot of reports that Battlefield 3 servers on the PC are being hacked. The game just came out, like, yesterday so this is definitely a worrying news. Infinity Ward said they are taking adequate precautions on the PC, but what about DICE. Looks like all these reports are detrimental to the online atmosphere.

No... they didnt. No complains on the EA forums.

It's been one day since it came out. There are plenty of reports on Twitter. That's the place to be bro. LOL at EA forums.

Bu bu but BF3 isn't like COD, it doesn't get hacked. Everything BF3 fanboys have been saying bad about COD is starting to bite them in the butt.

I guess BF3 doesn't go "above the call" after all lol.

Punkbuster is failing already

Ummm battlelog has it's own forums. it's where all the battlefield players go. Even the devs. Theres been no mention of hacks.

Though I'm sure they are out now. to not expect hacks is foolish. The best way to resolve this is to join a server with constant admins. Clan servers or community servers like penny arcade, or reddit means hackers get insta banned.

this article is making it seem like the game is rampant with em. Very misleading

Unfortunately, random people on twitter squabbling over supposed hackers isn't all that concrete evidence.

It isn't uncommon for people to pull the hax-card whenever they get their arse handed to them in a round.

The people leveling up quickly is the only kind of hack I've seen so far judging from the forums, but that isn't really that big of a problem.

No ITS JUST SuCK face noobs who cant play and think there are hackers all over the place.

there usually come hackers within the first week but not so many that it ruins it. just change servers. odds are youve just met a player that can wipe the floor with you and your measly kcount

Just improve your skill and then things get better.
when your up against a real hacker youll know it because he'll be nowhere in sight and laying face up on the ground 500Meters away and killing everyone on the map one after another with auto headshots.

not because you suck and lose a gun battle.

and I know there are more subtle aim assist hacks and other special types besides the blatant hacker but still today the odds are you are just being paranoid and suck at shooting or your internet sucks or the server sucks. Much Much more reasonable to shout one of those as the culprit but not hackers.

And THIS is the kind of stuff I'm talking about when I say that consoles actually have some advantages over PCs.

If they go to the EA forums with their Origin login then we know they are actually purchasers of the game and not random trollers who are just complaining for the sake of complaining.

So until they figure out how to report issues properly then their complaints will fall on deaf ears.

Don't go looking for that lost contact in a better lit area just because it is easier to see.

We have access to different forums hosted through Battlelog so you wouldn't see it on the EA forums but trust me there is hackers.

Legion2313d ago

If I could get into Battlelog then I could maybe see the reports. Unfortunately I have fallen in with the numerous people who are getting the you don't have permission to login.

awi59512314d ago

I bet this is the stolen verion from torrent sites. I havent seen any hackers i been playing like mad. In bad company 2 hackers were everywhere havent seen any yet.

kaozgamer2313d ago

Dude, the people who pirated it can't play online

awi59512313d ago

Thats not what ive heard ive heard there are lots of ways to play online through hacks. It doesnt surprise me people who stole crysis 2 was playing online for months.

Ranich2313d ago

They're playing on cracked servers, but not on official servers.

showtimefolks2313d ago

and higher number of players i also feel like we also get a lot more issues too

but in a way a lot of this will be fixed in time its a big title so ea will make it right hopefully

"Clan servers or community servers like penny arcade, or reddit means hackers get insta banned."

You're so so wrong, reddit servers are always filled with hackers, clan servers cater to the clan exclusively so they'll boot you when you begin to whoop their ass. Penny Arcade is generally good thou.

kutocer2314d ago (Edited 2314d ago )

Yes there is Hackers already, saw 1 match report Bumblebee (now changed name) 179k 0d. Report's flooding in on forums. I can't wait for UK release and all my friends and I can play our our 64slot server and will not have hackers, cheaters or glitchers and will be banned. The ban hammer takes about a week to ban someone I've read.

StayStatic2314d ago

Well of course its a new game , not going to be perfect at launch.

No doubt a patch will be in the works soon.
