Ideas for the future

Recommended Posts

Ok well I was wasting some time and I looked at the banlist of mainly the Battlefield series and I noticed that the servers that caught the person hacking are actually infact pistol or snipe or knife servers. So Im just wondering how this is possible if you dont allow ppbans on those types of servers. If you look the HK_ is a sniper only server.

 

I have noticed that a couple pistol servers are starting to change the name during the day and at night they change it back where it doesnt say pistol only. And even better they are using titan mode.

 

I think you should have undercover teams on your ppbans supported games to look for these servers and shut them down. If I have to waste my 50hrs trying for a badge so do other people.

 

Also I was thinking would there be a way that you can have ppbans streaming the computer and not the server if this is possible it would caught alot of people.

 

It seems that people (not saying any names) dont seem to care about the future hacks, oh and can someone tell me who to call about a known hacker. I have him baned so I believe I have his hash and IP/name.

Modded servers have nothing to do with actual cheating.

We do not see anything wrong in server admins streaming to us modded servers as long as they are not cracked ones.

 

If you want to complain about stats padding issues or anything related to EA's rules, please contact EA directly.

Bottom line is stats padding is NOT cheating. We define cheating as using a program, locked game settings, etc to give an unfair advantage against other players. Stats padding does not give an unfair advantage.

 

If you dislike a servers rule then find another it as simple as that. We don't tell admins how to run their servers with the exception of running cracked servers for the purpose of disabling cd key checks.

 

Stats padding is solely up to EA to deal with and admins running padding servers are more then welcome to use our services if they choose to do so.

Modded servers have preset configurations from the mod that alters the game to use enhanced weapons and such. Modded servers are NOT ranked servers.

 

Mods are not cheats!

Well I think EA, ppbans (or other anti-hack provider), and Server providers should find a happy medium. I dont like hackers as much as yall do but you three need to pull resources together and make a fun game instead of having a crack in the system.

EA doesn't care about us, all they care about is money. And we have tried working with other AC sites but not all of them wanted to work together.

See thats the thing the Server Provider follows EA rules or they lose the right to rent out servers if they get caught. EA seems to not give a hoot anymore they just look into the future and poop on the past. And (no effense) AC sites only care about hacks. Is there not a happy medium. Excuse my french but someone needs to grow some balls and fight for something.

Quick question would it not be easier to have ppbans stream the individual computer and not the server. Or would that be to much work.

 

Making anti-cheat entirely client side would be a massive mistake.

We fight to keep cheaters from ruining other players gaming experience. Stat padders are free to do as they wish and that applies to the server owners and players.

 

Stats are meaningless, it just ruins a game because people are more worried about getting a badge or award and don't focus on the game.

 

I still don't understand why some are so worried about other peoples stats. Only stats I worry about in games are my own. Boy I miss the old days when people played for fun and not for some icon in front of their name.

well Im sorry if i hurt your feelings not my intent. I look at stat padding as cheating because while I have to get a medal or badge the old fashion way they are sitting around get them done. Badges are challenge to the game that is usaully what is the point to games am I not wrong? With the stats I already have had 3 max rank players so its easy to rank but like the old days people tryed to have fun now all they care about yes are the badges and such.

 

And I hope you and I havent gotten on the wrong hand. Dont get me wrong Im dont dissing the work you all are doing.

I could understand if you were to say "Stat padding is not a form of cheating that we are set up to address or police here" ...but saying that it is "not cheating" is saying more than can be said without violating the meaning of the word "cheating" as it is normally used.

 

I am quite happy about the forthcoming Battlefield 2142 update, because after it is released I have been told I can expect to see the damage to my stats repaired, after my account was hacked.

 

This is important to me because like pretty much any fair-minded person, I feel compelled to see stat-padding as cheating, as it is breaking the rules that all players have agreed to when they installed the game and made an account, and because it is gaining an unfair advantage over players who play by the rules ...and I do not want to be lumped in with that crowd.
