Call of Duty Warzone 2FA (two-factor authentication) has been added by Infinity Ward on PC, and it has made life hell for cheaters.
Good, I don't even bother playing online PVP games these days because there are so many cheaters. If this stops some of them then it can only be a good thing.
Yeah, this is definitely good news. Hopefully, other games can do something similar but I can see why they wouldn't want to though.
It sucks coming across cheaters especially when there are only 5 teams left....*sigh*
What was that online forum before reddit that made you use you ISP email to create a account because they had to ban so many people? Trolls were mad about that.
NeoGaf, which stood for 'new gaming age forum'. Terrible nazi mods there, even after a mass exodus that forum is still chugging along. Ugh.
Good news though is that Ground War doesn't require crossplay anymore.
Wait that got rid of that?thats why I never touched that mode
Yeah, must've been a recent change but definitely not required now. It still asks you everytime you select it "are.you sure you don't want crossplay? You may struggle to find a game." Lmao, with the amount of people playing this game you'll never struggle to find a full game. Even when it had found me a game with 63 out of 64 players, it asked again if I wanted to enable crossplay.
I blame consoles greedy companies like EA, Sony, Activision and Microsoft loved these closed systems on console and try to bring that mess to PC. This wasnt a Issue when Pc had Private dedicated servers for most games. They ran better we had better tic rates and we instantly banned hackers when they joined our serves they never stayed long. These so called AAA games have taken all the control from the communities so its been a dumpster fire ever since. People saying racist crap in chat some guy kills everyone on the server with a Knife hack and he does it all game before hes kicked or he may not get kicked at all. In the old days you would get kicked for sitting in a bush all game by the admin. Also when EA decides to shut down servers the private servers take over and you can still play to this day.
Ah the way gaming is going we're lucky to have any control these days, not just on the network side of things but on aspects like ownership, denuvo, always online, etc. Sometimes gaming now almost feels like a chore, instead of something special and fun. I know my standards for good games have slipped as well as I say things like "at least the microtransactions aren't shoved in my face" or "oh the DLC is free". These companies ruin everything, some worse than others of course.
Consoles are not to blame for all the pc cheaters. Also crossplay isn't a greedy move. It actually takes money out of companies like Microsofts hands since people don't need an Xbox to play with their friends. Next time you want to make a pointless rant at least use a little logic.
It's the PC crowd that's cheating. Should just rope them into their own mode and let the other consoles crossplay.
@Servbot41 There is cheaters on consoles forever their are plenty of used xbox's and playstations in pawn shops that have been perma banned from online services . Its been going on for years thats why you dont buy used consoles unless you know the person. Plenty of modded consoles out there that have been modded all the crap so they are banned. And you can report them all day long and nothing happens to them because you have no control.
@shloobian Yes they are Microsft tried this crap before with Games for windows and DLC crap they tried it on pc and we told them to go to hell. But consoles bought Horse armor like crazy people and off to the races it went. The Loot boxes that was Fifa on console that started it then everyone started doing it.
Oh? I haven't played Ground War in a long time. Might look into it. Lots of under-the-floor spots stil though.
To be fair I've not been killed on a Ground War map with that under map horseshit in a long time. Worst was under B on the port map. I tell ya, I was just about ready to quit when it happened xD.
Cheaters upset? What about all the legit players they made upset? So much entitlement and hypocrisy. Goes to show what kind of person a cheater is.
Good. Give the cheaters as much hurdles so they're discourage to even think about cheating. Now Activision just need to go after the cheat makers and send them to the gulag with lawsuits.
What a disgrace another developer going against cheaters, these poor guys all they want is just to win but what world we live in where cheaters can't cheat!
Not a tear was shed,
Oh no! What'll they do?! Cry me a fuckin' river, you skillless, simping cucks. Finally can log back on Warzone PC for some actual games, not being infested with this cancer. If I were Sony & Microsoft though, I would have totally blocked PC from crossplay, but they're both pussies being afraid of the backlash from the noise that the tiny minority of the players from the PC will make due to this & think that might affect their stock market to go down (a tiny percent like what the fortnite crossplay/crossave thing happened for Sony), especially now, as both these companies are stepping into the PR stage pf their new consoles' launch this year, & they DON'T want ANY negative PR associated with them. Sony learn't from PS3 about a disastrous PR and launch, and so did Microsoft, with the Xbox One. It's almost a crime that console players are not making noise about blocking PC crossplay for ALL the games.
Hey console gamers - a PC player here, you DON'T NEED PC players in the crossplay pool, it's us, who need you, because we don't have players to play with otherwise. Games made by Valve/Blizzard/Riot Games/ F2P games/MMo's, we can manage. But every other game, "ON AVERAGE", that releases, dies within a week or a month tops, on the PC, because we don't buy as much as you do, It's a cold hard fact that new retail games & paid digital games, sell 10 times more on consoles, & thus retaining 10 times the concurrent player count of the PC on consoles. SO, you DON'T NEED us, WE NEED YOU, to even survive in some of these games. It's pretty much the reason Ground War and Warzone are forced crossplay on console (I heard that now it's changed) and it's crossplay "ON" by "default", else PC would NEVER be able to find games in these playlists, as our daily active population isn't even 1/5th as big as yours. You're being cucked by your console manufacturers who are afraid of bad PR, and they're letting us use you as guinea pigs for our pleasure, and we are THE ONLY people who get the advantage of having PC crossplay, on top of ALL THE UNDENIABLE HARDWARE ADVANTAGES (which are NOT ONLY KEYBOARD & MOUSE). The developer WILL NOT LISTEN TO YOU, and THEY SEE YOU AS A GUINEA PIG as well. This is because, they cannot extract money from a dead PC playerbase, so they want to push the propaganda and lies for PC crossplay, like "tHiS gAmE iS dEsIgNeD wItH cOnTrOLLeR iN mInD", which is a fucking bold faced lie in itself as ANY shooter will be obviously better played on a KB/M combo, and they would pretend that "KB/M IS THE ONLY ADVANTAGE PC HAS, WHICH HAS BEEN MITIGATED BY OUR GAME DESIGNED FOR CONTROLLER", which is another lie. In the end, they want money, and they are using you to resurrect the PC playerbase to nickel n dime PC players for microtransactions. So, make your voices heard to your console manufacturers. Tell your executives like Shu Yoshida, Phil Spencer, Aaron Greenberg, Major Nelson etc, on twitter, that you DON'T WANT PC crossplay, and the ONLY advantage PC crossplay brings, is to the PC platform and NOT YOU. You get ZERO advantage by crossplaying with PC. You get hardware disadvantages while crossplaying with PC, which are UNDENIABLE. Post on popular forums on resetera, neogaf and reddit (where these game journalists lurk and gather information to write their articles, and places like resetera, where these industry executives from Sony and Microsoft, even hangout sometimes, because they (these places) are powerful joints which shape the whole narrative of the industry. You will be insulted, and your argument, FACTUAL UNDENIABLE ARGUMENTS you make against PC crossplay, like the hardware advantage on PC, will be downplayed with irrelevant nonsensical garbage prior to a single line low IQ shite like "no advuntej jerp derpa LUL", as most of these places are infested with PC trolls who control the narrative of crossplay and the vehemently push the propaganda of PC crossplay, by cleverly hiding behind the "But! My FRIENDS!" curtain. Fear not, there are some of us from the PC, there, who would speak the truth & back you up with truth, facts & evidence, instead of emotional garbage. Start posting. DEMAND CONSOLE-ONLY CROSSPLAY. If this PC crossplay becomes mainstream, your platforms are as good as dead.
"Most people have releases, dies within a week or a month tops" This happens on consoles for most people, that aren't in US or Europe. Either that or shitty ping. Makes more sense to block games with the most cheaters. PlayStation and Nintendo can easily single player games. Microsoft is Microsoft.
Let's get this on all pvp games.
Poor cheaters, they just can't ever seem to prosper.
Players are not thrilled with the future prospects of cosmetics like these.
Scummy company and garbage tactics.
i agree hence why i do not get all the money sony is spending over making sure this ip is on there platform. Compared to the old titles numbers are less revenue is down and look at the other games in the revenue space cod is small. All these scumy moves they are doing is not making them genshin impact money or activisions candy crush numbers.
