Then that's plain silly and unfair, because if someone with "low credibility" is asking for help from the staff/admins to monitor someone then he'll keep suffering the consecuences of the staff not caring about him because "this guy is always reporting people"....then 5 months later the suspected reported guy pops up in FairFight while the innocent player with low credibility was right but nobody from the staff cared about him and his concern about the hackers...
...you guys really need to scrip a proper built-in anti cheat because cheaters are even streaming while blatanty destroying the last remains of the game and they know exactly what times of the night/day to cheat wihtout caring and then you have the other kind of cheaters who jump into alternative accounts to test how far they can cheat till they are detected so then they can jump back into their main max rank accounts and keep cheating discretely avoiding being banned...
I don't know and I'm not questioning the way a report is handled but as a suggestion I'd like to point out that everytime someone reports a player the suspected player should be put under review not just for his ingame behaviors but also is needed to check on the multiple accounts they log and if possible check the chat logs of their private messages, many of them use to be very obvious and even admit they're cheating.
I insist, giving "credibility" and ignoring reports for those who doesn't have any is harmful for us the clean players who are suffering the consecuences of the lack of built-in anticheat scripts and is not only unfair but also disrespectful.
Every single report should be reviewed, in any normal multiplayer game you have admins constantly caring of everything that's going on in the game and they even contact you privately to ask you what is your concern about and why do you suspect a player so the admin can take a look at what you are thinking might be a player cheating.
Tiggs, you can't imagine how easy and how longer a player can get if they only cheat with wallhacks and the huge advantage that can be on a Third Person game...trust me, there are players cheating since years this way, a few of them, once they reach max rank on a character then starts to go a bit mor blatant since they know nothing is going to happen to them.
if you spam the /report feature 47 times on the same person you should not have the same credibility as someone who uses the /report feature once and moves on
i'd be willing to put money that the same person abusing the /report system is also full caps in /d asking everyone to report the people who beat him in a mission
