Report Hacker = Nothing happens for weeks/months

There are some hackers that have been at it for weeks if not months. Would be nice if this actually meant something.

  • Yep.... exactly as you sad! Nothing happends, a few very well known hackers still playing since beta, I will not name them cus mods will be closeing this thread = it will be a pity.

    They ruin whole servers than leave, all know that. Noone cares so sad. Give us a tool to decide like in CS:GO - Overwatch and than based on other ppl opinion admins can decide about BAN yes/no. The process will be much quicker and troll with insane blatant cheat/hack will be off forever!

    Sorry man but one shot hero through wall by CR-2 from one corner of map to the other is 100% unlegit - end this person what I talking about is playing since beta I meet him more than 100 times, 100-200 kills depend on map in GA. On kamino as deffender he got 97 kills :-D like a Chuck Norris :-D

    I can only recommend that you report the player.
    Perhaps mention to the people on the server that if they see anyone cheating that they report them too - maybe even explain them politely how you do report cheaters.
    Getting better and more precise cheat reports with links to video and screenshots is the best way to improve the system.

    Well... this is nice idea you know :-) my friends and me, respectivny whole my team 16 ppl reporting cheaters with vids... nothink happend since beta, those players still ruining game lobbies. Youtube is full of these one shot instant bullet and other bullshiets cheat.... still playing :-D make me laughing.

    BTW... your FF system work perfectly only for legit players you know, my team mate instaled czech language to game and he was insta banned... this make me more rofl than you even think :-D He play with me since close alpha and now only because you not have Czech language support for game he was banned - TOAL NONSENCE but still this hacker playing so sad, so sad....

    ---youtube video removed---

    just dont tell us to report someone who was reported 100 tmes... just do somethink!!!!! Gamers wanna see how much accounts was banned or why FF or EA terms of service support ban them, so ez to give your customers a little point of wiev to this case of cancer cheateting problem...

    @Carbonic you can close the thread cus your favourite words "name and shame" cus I post hacker vid, rofl!!!!!!! keep covering them.... Now I just have an idea about EA doing hacks for own game to get more profit KEK!!!!!!!!!

    FF banning people for skin mods but not hackers perhaps it has its priority's wrong me thinks.

    That one hack is worse than the other doesn't make the first one right.
    It's not really about priority. It's about files being changed are way easier to detect than modifications to memory and data being sent to the server.

    Totally agree with you sir.

    However just stating that FF doesn't detect modifications, its not supposed to.

    FairFight uses algorithmic models to evaluate gameplay against multiple statistical markers to identify cheating as it occurs. FairFight crosschecks these indicators using objective server-side reporting tools. It takes action when both approaches correlate to cheating - and because you establish FairFight's tolerances and the in-game actions to be taken against the hacker, you are in control of your game like never before. Algorithmic Analysis of Player Statistics (AAPS) compares each player's game play statistics across an array of performance measures and compares them against averages derived from all of the gamers playing your game. FairFight uses the results of these comparisons to find statistical anomalies that correlate strongly to the use of cheats.

    So skin mods should not really result in a ban for these people who used them.
  • I completely agree with Carbonic, it is very difficult for a game to do something that it is not designed to do.

    Than they need admit only one thing, they were choseing bad anticheat :-( that all I can say!
  • Reporting the player seems to do nothing. I understand that the support team has been basically gutted to nothing, but perhaps it is time to let a anti-cheat service step in and do the kicking and perm bans. Somebody like punkbuster or a few of the other groups would help. It is a shame that there is no crackdown from the developer side of it as well to prevent theft of code. Perhaps it would be best to finally catch a few hackers and just kill their families as an example. Maybe that is going to far, but something needs to be done, even if the mod community can step in and help. Who knows, they may even be able to add some new maps and fix some of the issues.

    Yep you are right.... I agree with you! BTW mod community (nexusmod) done more work than real devs. in BF2 cus is totaly sad, EA/DICE trolling us too much now!
  • Still hackers every day.. every other game

    I'm on the EU servers and I don't even find a hacker a month on average.

    Well heavily depends on time you go to Q :-) and ofc. some bad luck needed to get blatant oneshot, through wall etc. 100% non legit. But our most famous one is still on... sad :-D¨

    Second issue is hardly recognized, good reflex or voice com, good aim in many times can looks like an Aimbot/Wallhack, but I think in 95% cases not, just good aim and skilled player output (maybe comunication with others players, mean sniper tell assualt where enemy are, ez like hell, we do this if we play group very effective!), that´s my opinion ofc you may not agreed.

  • Lucky you Carbonic! When your full hp heroes are one tapped from half way across the map in .25 seconds theres no doubt its a hacker. Also when a heavy is using t50 on endor to 1 tap speeders going full speed halfway across the map its rather obvious. Lots of experienced players know hackers when they see them and they are VERY common on US servers.
  • Or how about having a full hp Phasma with the hp boost fully on getting one tapped by a trooper in .25 seconds. You know the artwork and sounds and everything in general is pretty good in this game, but no anti-cheat detection or new maps for GA is going to be the end of this game.
  • No team shuffle after map change and hackers is really doing a number on the community. It also makes the game pretty boring when 75%+ of the time one team is completely steamrolled.

    It is quite perplexing that all we hear about this is "report" players when clearly nothing ever happens. How can reporting do something if you don't have the data to actually confirm they are hacking? All it boils down to at that point is hear-say.

    I have almost 700 hours logged on this game and can CONFIRM that the same old hackers are still at it including new ones every week. Also I don't mind playing very challenging teams and actually prefer it since I am usually in first place or am on the scoreboard practically every game. The steamrolls are boring and tired for anyone that actually plays the hell out of this game, but nobody wants to play against hackers.

    Also, from all the hackusations that go on from inexperienced players, even if you did have the data to confirm reports how would you ever get to them with all of the false reports by noobs. Not everyone has time to make video compilations of hackers to add to their report and we shouldn't be expected to. Especially on the slim possibility something would actually be done about it.
  • @WhatAShame man... 100% agreed with all you wrote here. I played 2,1k hours now (sorry for total tryhard :-D), cus I get some little xp with game mechanics, how to aim and where I can put my crosshair if target is far or close (plus weapon ofc... every one need a little bit somethink else), how he moveing etc, etc, etc, you know what I am talking about.

    From closed alpha was fine, beta - first hacking trolls, total obvious!, Rest is as it is know and comunity know it, we all know it. And it isnt hard to recognized ppl use unlegit help, as you sad experienced ppl can see it pretty clear.

    Only what "nooby reports" do are filling my spam folder with EA mails from Terms and Services to say me they are looking to my account and found nothink suspicius (from BF1 (2015) I got 77 mails with same text, only date was different and same situation with BF2 (2017) but it is better only 3 mails recieved yet :-D ) This is about reporting from kids etc, only doing garbage, and legit players with skill sufers from this (meaning salt in chat and rage about "I reporting you haxer" and many others with stronger words, but hackers still rage in lobby and doing 150+ elim. GG!

    And reporting? total kek to all ppl who wanna play fair, cus I post 20 plus reports with vids one shot hero ship, one shot hero, kill through wall (not lag situation issue), etc, etc, etc, and still see that person playing from beta to now, wierd?

    Only what we can is live with it, and everytime mass leave lobby with hacker only real solution :-)
  • Another hacker on this morning, he keeps changing his name but it is the same guy because of his profile picture.

    Yeah, they aren't banning anyone in this game. EA is trash when it comes to making games on PC.
  • Dude why don't they let us poll kick/ban in game? They could even set it to 80% to avoid people abusing it. It's so ***** up when I join the only ga game I can find and a first order jet trooper is one hitting my whole team. Give us a poll method to deal with them because obviously EA cannot handle banning hackers. Maybe a temporary ban that lasts 1 match?! I don't want to see that link again for reporting them because it plain and simple does not work!!! There is even a popular streamer who hacks and people watch it for fun.. takes the fun out when I finally get my villain/hero then get 1 shot from across the map by a specialist infiltration.
