Do you think there will be even more cheating in APB reloaded then what there originally was in APB?

Thinking of that its now free and people wont care as much to get their account banned because they can always make a new one for free and continiue with the same hacks!

The same hacks which got them caught the first time will only get them caught a second time.

Tbh the only reason RTW APB got to so many hackers as it did was because RTW did not know how to correctly respond to a hacking threat, and showed that it would do nothing to punish the cheaters, hence it blossomed into an pandemic.

G1 on the other hand has a firm "Do it once and you are f*cking gone"

So i'm not to worried about it, from the CB so far i have only come across 1 or 2 people id even to begin questioning no less call them a hacker

Maybe you should learn how to read Xostean, judging by your lack of ability to read, social district clearly says "Filtered" you've been reported for rude behavior

There will always be hacks in any game that has hack for it. The only diff thing this time round is that G1 seem to be taking more of a stand against the hackers and are trying their best to stop it. You wont stop them all though! But they can damn well try!

The re-creating an account everytime does worry me and Im still guessing how they will stop this, hardware ban by the looks of the countless threads about it seem like the only way but I dont even know how that works!

But honestly, if your hacking and your account gets banned and then you start over, rinse repeat....will people really just keep recreating after every ban?

farg that lol

But then again, they are hackin bastids so I wouldnt put it past them lol

I'd like to think that most Clans/Clubs/Groups don't want to be associated with anyone running a cheat. It's bad press, period.

Tough to brag on a hack, and everyone knows this.

Here's to keeping it clean!

Me, i have no excuse, I'm just old and slow...rofl!!!

cheaters in APB ...
While there are prog. like x22cheats there is always some sort of Joe and Ivan, who is willing to pay 10 -20 euros for such a dubious pleasure.
Although I think the fact that to understand the principle of such a program, it is necessary, in addition to purchasing it, to try to decipher complicated code.
I hope they do so. If not - it's a good idea.

Avigirl : "who is willing to pay 10 -20 euros for such a dubious pleasure."

newbies love to buy this kind of cheat because they believe themselves stronger and can purple rain off everyone. or if it is also those who will lose all the time who will buy it. And more as the game is free to play it as it was ca buy (and weapons to the cash shop)

You can not be sure that the player cheater, yet he did not turn on speedhack:)
Development of anti-cheat than it is similar to the development of signatures against the anti-virus. Need to recognize the algorithm. Only after you can be sure.
For example a person has a good connection, so it seems that he quickly switches the target.

It will be an ongoing battle to fight them. It tough to anticipate what cheat will arise. Fixes/patches are only to the cheats that are active.

Trying to get a screenie is tough as well. Some things can’t be shown in a screenshot.

I’m sure G1 will do what it takes to combat cheats. Of course that’s only if their funding holds out.

Almost a year later after the last posting in this topic and the cheating/hacking problem in apb still isnt resolved.

'I’m sure G1 will do what it takes to combat cheats'.....dont make me laugh. G1 dont give a rat's a-s-s about this as long there are paying customers (read: paying suckers). Why should they work seriously on this cheating problem as long as the money comes in from those idiots? People complain all the time ingame (where is a gm when you need one ingame but that aside...) but those skilled less hypocrites still pay monthly for their overrated and overpowered guns.

And instead of us delivering movies/screenshots etc. of people caught cheating or whatsoever, those lazy bastards called G1 should do this work by employing gm's ingame thats solves problems immediately, use better anti cheat programs like DMW (not for apb, yet that is, but there are better things than punkbuster..)and do something about these cheaters/grievers/ghosts/spammers in a serious matter.

I understand why this game loses people every week. Soon the only people who will be playing this game are paying hypocrites and cheaters. Sad...

I've seen more blatant cheaters reaching higher ranks lately.

It's really a sad sight.

People are so wise,
they necro'd this thread twice!

First after one year and then now.


Also, G1 does have a stance against cheaters, but executing it seems to be a problem for them.

Hacking isn't an easy problem to solve.
All games suffer from this.

The question is which side you're on.
Do you try and maintain a clean player base or hack yourself silly.
Make your choice.

G1 does more than EA, that should tell you something.

EA doesn't really care about its releases. That is nothing new though.

And to be honest, I rarely meet cheaters, so G1 seems to be effective enough.

EA cares when they have something to sell you and they use PB among other things.
They only act when the complaints are many.
When they have extracted as much cash as they can...they care little, like they do now. BF4 is now their cash cow. There hasn't been a major ban wave in months in BF3 for the major hack sites. Might get one before Endgame but I wouldn't bet on it.
As for cheaters...if you haven't seen a rise in such things then I guess you play on a different server.
At least I have the feeling G1 are actively banning ppl which is good...yeah, I know they come back...
Not all cheaters use hack sites though.
This game is far too open for those to gain an advantage.

I think G1 are upping their game.
It's a good thing.
