Eurogamer: Activision has admitted that combating Call of Duty cheaters is a "struggle" - but it refuses to wield too heavy a hand when it comes to banning players.
Not only cheaters are an issue them haters might be another group to focus on....I'm just saying because there are a lot of people who hate CoD. Looks fun to me just not my cup of tea but I don't hate it by any means either.
As said multiple times , the way i see it , people like me who can't stand cod anymore should rejoice at its success . It's either CoD remains on top , or its "pernicious effects" , and its fanbase , will bleed onto every other fps vying for the crown . Enough games are already copying enough cod elements as is , we dont need a rush from every devs to do so .
How about using a new engine that at the very least delays wallhacks and aimbots? I've seen hacks from MW2 that were almost instantly usable in MW3. It's un-friggin'-believable.
Maybe if they quit milking 10 year old's for all their parents money by releasing a "new game" every year they would find the time to make the game operate the way it should.
BF3 had pretty advanced aimbots floating around on day one of the beta and that was a brand spanking new engine
Because it was a BETA. The measures to detect something like that probabaly wern't implemented yet.
How about playing on console? No hacks in the newest COD games. At least not on PS3.
I've played about 35 hours of MW3 on the 360, about the same on PC, maybe had one or two games with someone you might consider to be "cheating". No aimbots or whatever. To be honest I'd say COD is no worse than any other online game (PC) I've played, it's just the sheer player count means you get more bad eggs.
The killcam might be another thing. In CoD, it's usually easy to tell someone who's hacking because the killcam shows it. While in other games, I can't tell as quickly if someone is just skilled or uber hax.
With the obscene amount of money that CoD generates, I really don't understand how difficult it can be to deal with this problem, be it independent advice or relevant expert staff. Even just getting trigger happy with the ban hammer, ok they may lose a few thousand sales as a result but let's face it, those kind of numbers won't make a dent.
I don't understand why people cheat in online games. Cheating on tests, I get, Cheating on wives, I get. Cheating for money, makes total sense. But what's the point in cheating to win an online match? You don't gain anything from it and you certainly aren't fooling anyone else into thinking your a good player. I suppose griefing is fun, but that's a short lived kind of fun. The "fun" part is the competitiveness of online games, the chance that you might win or lose. If you win all the time because you're cheating all the time then victories become hollow and it ceases to be fun. Or at least that's how I feel.
What you are feeling is sportsmanship. Some people just arent built with those sort of values.. It sucks.
Griefing is definitely fun (and makes me and others jerks) but it's also short lived. I have yet to understand why people will spend hours playing with aimbot. It's like playing the campaign on easy. Incredibly boring.
Well AlterIWNet had a good anti cheat in place and you shut it down, why don't they hire these people , guess they don't care.
And yo cheatin us with your games Activision.
BS. Cheats & cheating have always been popular for some evil reason, especially with competitive online gaming. I think CoD attracts a lot of scum because cheating is easy, and Activision knows that and wants to keep it that way. Fine with me, that way they won't be playing my games. Every year it's hurray for the new sales record, more scum distracted for a few months:) Shitty for those who do not cheat, but I think they allow it on purpose. A lot of people probably don't even realise they're being cheated.
The fact that people cheat at CoD (one of the easiest shooters you can get your hands on) then brag about being a god of the console or PC is so sad. These people are only going to teach their children how to grow up and be dicks.
