  1. Well...... It's an ongoing multiplayer game, that needs running servers -> servers cost money, so i am somewhat fine with them trying to cover their monthly cost without cutting too much into that sweet initial game purchase cash. Let's face it, 90% of the gamers ( if not more ) have bought the game already and i doubt that re-buying cheating account cover much of the costs. That being said, i am totally fine with the Season Pass - you get guaranteed stuff, if you need/want it. No chance, no gambling - grind and you get. As much as i have read, they stopped the renting with the pass, so all is fair in my personal opinion. Same with the skins, that you can buy - if you feel like shelling out 10$ for a skin, cool for you, not my money. The Lootbox/Key system on the other hand is a friggin scam and should be seriously reworked. Yes, it IS gambling and everybody knows it. Having 5 of 7 boxes every week locked is pretty much on the same level as EA with their Battlefront desaster and if we gamers would be at least a tiny bit on the smart side, no one would buy keys currently. Keep the keys, eliminate the chance of getting doubles, triples etc. - cool. Let players opt out of getting locker crates and just the regular ones - cool again. But paying 2.5 $ for a beige rugged skin, that i already have 4 times - nopes, that's scamming and keeps me from actually buying keys anymore. Would be perfectly willing to shell out a few bucks every now and then, but not within the current scheme.

    Cheating Discussion

    Well, as a guy i know from the eastern part of EU is saying "why you not cheat ? everyone here cheats" and yes, he was seriously baffled about the concept of playing fair. Thats actually whats bothering me most....everyone is picking on the chinese and yes, they ARE problematic, but the EU got its own cunts to care about too.

    Same on EU....at least one in every single game, there is a bit on the positive side though - we got WEAPON SKINS now and i am SO, SOOOOO excited about that. Milk that cow as long as you can, from a business perspective - kudos for your balls PUBG "Corp", seriously !

    Given this wonderful piece of information also implies, that the "Open a ticket with video evidence" is pretty much a smoke bomb Given the amount of tickets opened, we can assume that the attachments are not being saved for a long time, if not immediately being erased. If you don't attach anything you get a copy paste in the sense of "Unfortunately we can't do anything without video evidence" So, spending our time and bandwidth to help BH improving their game is essentially being disregarded and unless a number of x reports are going in for a cheater, nothing is happening at all. Further we can assume, that the "number of x" value is pretty much known in certain circles and at least the not completely braindead cheaters will take care, that they stay under the radar. Can't wait for any AAA company to give me exactly the same game with more server side calculations, ping locks and an actual interest in more than a quick buck (ok, last one will be tough). I honestly think that unfortunately the game will be a footnote at the end of the year due to bad business decisions.

    But you can emote your displeasure about it now ! And no, different teams do different stuff does not really work for me anymore, since in the last months the excuse for lack of new content has been "Most of the ressources are being put into Anti Cheat" Can't wait to hear about the major victories from BlueHole, like we managed to ban VMWare !!!! Weeee ! I bet there was a lot of high fiving and fist bumping going on after that accomplishment. Also i am still missing an explanation, in what way the Ping approximation solution is way better than a Ping Lock....this puzzles me greatly.

    Todays Anti Cheat update is pointless too. As it seems, they did not even have to upgrade their Aimbots. Good job, seriously GREAT job ..unfortunately by the Cheat Coders

    Not sure how true, so take it with at least a grain of salt, but since i experienced the same and did some googling, some cheatpages advertise a "not possible to report you" function, which might or might not be that. Still can report with page and replay, though i guess that if not at least 5 gamers are doing that on someone, it gets deleted anyway. That said, it might also be a plain bug, though it happened three times for me on VERY obvious cheaters.

    Technically i would agree, but the entire point of it is to actually keep the ones too stupid to google out with simple stuff and escalate your measures up to sharks with laserbeams. They will never avoid hacking 100%, but they could do a much better job at containing it

    Dude, srsly .... trying condescension ? fine..... Are you following the tiny conversation we are having ? You were not trying to be a dick and pointing out "facts" and telling that HW bans won't work, because they can be spoofed Me talking about DiD and explaining why HW bans DO in fact help You replying that IP change with router reset. Me saying that IPs are not what i am talking about You "explaining" IP Me....eh, too early for this, this ceases to amuse me

    And where is an IP a HW hash ?

    Doors can be kicked in and/or blasted open, but i presume you still use them ? Locks can be picked, but i presume you still use them ? Defense in Depth. Destroy the Playbook. If 50% would NOT spoof their HW Hashes, it's 50% less cheaters. I think you get my point

    I saw people weeks and weeks with active profiles and some are still not banned. Of course, some ....let's call them "the intellectually challenged".....are too dumb to even properly cheat, but the majority actually has some pretty advanced stuff. Sad thing is, technically they COULD reduce the issue by 99.9% ( number pulled of my buttocks, but let's got with a big one here ), but implementing those technologies prevents sales, would seriously drive some people nuts and as i see it currently - the key business is not really taking of, so revenue needs to come from somewhere

    I am aware that the sales boost work like this currently, but the logic is flawed. By now, the cheat developers KNOW how the anti-cheat works and it won't take them longer to develop / circumvent it, as is would with instabans. Given that most of the cheats work on a subscription model anyway and yes, most come with a new game key too, nothing is gained in regards of cheat prevention, besides that the cheaters can play longer until their bans. Only positive side here - more new copies are being sold. BH does not care as much as they could, otherwise a ping restriction would be in place, since - besides their insistance, that it's totes complicated to implement - it is not that difficult on the top layers to implement.

    ....and i was wondering why people shoot in the sky in killcam and attributed it to a stupid killcam Modified Paks are still there and turn your opponents into giant kaijus and headshots STILL register. Lordy, this game needs a complete code overhaul.

    Well, not to step on your toes, but it sounds like level100 3rd party tech support for OEMs Back when i was doing this, we actually checked the data on premise and on the servers and/or clients, which Bluehole should be capable of. Further, as has been mentioned about a dozen of times, provided links with youtube videos stay at 0 views, meaning no one actually cares to take a look. It comes down to a single fact - it is NOT our responsibility to keep the game cheat free - it's theirs, we can assist, but that's it. The technology does exist, implementation WILL annoy the heck out of some people though ( highly intrusive, privacy, probable Win10 only etc. ), but the current business model is - ban a cheater, sell a new copy.
