theory? oh i like theories...

Recommended Posts

in the past, when LO bans, the game gets a massive uptick in ddos. it's a massive disruption to not only the players, but to LO as a company.

 

so, here's what i think is happening...

 

  • get a ddos that works and make sure it works
    • let it run for a while... test it... tune it... confirm it does protect
    • although not perfect, what is cookin' now is certainly helping (and probably cost tens of thousands of dollars)
  • add a totally new anti-cheat
    • learn from what BE and the others didn't provide
    • give it some time to learn and profile as all these apps require
      • with all the cheating going on now, it's getting quite the education
  • time to clean house
    • kick the cheaters with reasonable confidence
    • prep for the pile of support tickets
    • huddle in place and brace for the ddos
    • rinse, repeat...

 

all of this has been done before, but it lacked the ddos protection. so it was 2 steps forward, 1 step back.

 

and, this isn't something LO would broadcast to the community. nor have they in the past. thus their silence.

 

i'm unclear as to what uniqueness the new anti-cheat provides, but... i am wondering if it can help with commercially available exploits. and updating the hack wouldn't really be worthwhile at this point for a 'company' as it would be hard to recoup the investment given the small player base.

 

is it possible that 'every little thing... gonna be alright...' ? or... have i had one too many cups of coffee today?

Only thing I would've added to this is that while LO remind silent, they issued an apology to the players alienated by the silence.

 

But that's just me.

How about trying crazy idea's? Can we do crazy idea's? I have one! 😁

Let's add one server where everyone is allowed to do whatever they want. No checks. no bans, no gm's. Big warning when you create a character. 😛

After the engine Upgrade is completed I really hope they add a new interface since our current one limits how many districts there are.

Then we can have all of this and more new content at the same time (in theory)

i dont get how the anti cheats dont work? If they work with other games using the same engine why dont they work with APB? BattleEye, FairFight and EAC are supposed to be the top dogs in the business. Why is APB not being protected?

the current interface can only support a certain number of districts.

once a new Engine and interface are made then there should not be a limit anymore

they spend more than that on anti cheat regardless.

I don't remember if RTW made it that way or if G1 did

either way for APB to grow and bring in more people , we need more districts and events etc.

and for that the interface is a must to be worked on.

Opening a support ticket directly with Easy Anti-Cheat might be a option. 

Try it.
