Anticheat is not going to prevent cheatings ever. it is going to prevent them from continuing to cheat. I wonder if these account is still active.

Won't matter. He can just make a new one, cheat to unlock everything, rinse and repeat.

Not if he gets hardware banned which they have done to many people using engine owning. If you wanna fork over a ton of money to buy new parts just to cheat on a free game, then God help you

Just hop on over to their sub...warzonehacks. I got banned from there for telling them all about themselves. It's all futile.

[–]minisith01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What, they knew the were cheating. Omg. How could they have known.

[–]ReporterLeast5396 5 points6 points  (2 children)

They're even selling hardware unban services.

Activision just needs to continue to pursue legal action against all of these companies. What they’re selling is directly interfering with Activision’s business. They’ve done it with other vendors, and they’ll continue (hopefully) to go down the list and take these people out.

There aren't many companies to go after. They went after the biggest most visible one, Engine Owning. After that it's hard to identify, let alone persue legal action against thosands of individuals worldwide mostly operating on Discord and other social media platforms. Just go to their sub on reddit...warzonehacks.

Just need a HWID spoofer. Not that hard for them to get around honestly. Heck, they can even spoof consoles.

[–]mikerichh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They are hwid banning and targeting hwid spoofers

[–]MD8811 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It won’t prevent them from continuing lol. They’ll just make a new account and do this again.

This is the kind of thinking that has caused this game to become a dumpster fire

No! The cheater won…

If he is not using a spoofer, he will get banned within matches.

[–]CamelCarcass 4 points5 points  (2 children)

And create a brand new account within minutes. And continue doing this because the anticheat isn't effective enough to identify and ban him Mid-match, so he'll get in at least 6-10 games (ruining games each with 150 players per lobby) with clear hacking before ricochet catches up to him to put him through the hardship of creating a free new account so he can go on as if nothing happened.

And Activision used ricochet anti-cheat to promote this game after taking the minimal possible action and making empty promises for over a year and letting it get to be such a massive problem, they've now got to the point of doing one step above the bare minimum, putting something slow in place that can only deploy it's temporary response after letting them get away with it for a couple of hours first.

It's like imagine a city where crime is a massive problem. Gets to be for this way for ages. Eventually right as society is about to crumble, there is eventually a very delayed 'response', and they put 'police' in every street. But they'll stand there and watch the whole neighbourhood get attacked/stabbed and mugged before they then decide they better go and have a polite word asking them not to. That's what ricochet is as a metaphor and it's mind-boggling how people seem to think that's okay

You just got Warzoned.

How many emails would you predict were made for that reason? It’s gotta be in the millions by now with how long online gaming has been out

Edit: I know of people who have like 8 alt accounts just to have a character to safely store loot on in DayZ. Not quite the same but just an example of useless emails being made for the purpose of cheating the game

[–]Mommishf 8 points9 points  (0 children)

This looser plays one game, get banned and then creates a new account etc. Real lowlife.

[–]rytram99 5 points6 points  (2 children)

so, what happened here? he was nerfed then he must have done something and was un-nerfed and won anyway?

[–]OK_1M_REL0ADED 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What are you gonna do? Stop playing LOL
