Battleye does a great job in the games I play that have it, so battleye it is.
Same impression. It really does seem a step above any other client-side anticheats. Probably also more expensive and perhaps too late to contemplate upon. (if they added such significant anti-cheat 1-2 years ago, then the size of APB would have remained far more healthy than it currently is).
Of course if they could negotiate a deal with BE, considering how small APB now is, then yes it would be awesome & should run alongside FairFight.
quote from BE's homepage:
Fighting cheaters in all games with success, it was obvious that BattlEye had the potential to be more than a traditional anti-cheat that only kicks or bans players after the damage has already been done. Consequently, BattlEye transformed into a proactive system in late 2014 completely preventing most cheating from happening. This marked the biggest milestone so far.
The cheater-plagued DayZ community has confirmed many times that cheating has been reduced to an absolute minimum ever since the new proactive system was introduced in February 2015. Mission: Success! Being passionate about protecting games for almost 11 years, we are looking forward to assisting game developers in their fight against selfish cheaters for many decades to come.
I've never played DayZ, so I can't confirm nor deny, but I play H1Z1 with friends (battleye) and I've yet to encounter anyone I got the feeling was cheating and definitely yet to encounter anyone that straight up was spinbotting or speedhacking etc.
Anyway, yes bring it on ... Tiggs, please contact BE and see if they're lenient on the price for a small-time game? (if you haven't already).
Next step, deal with selfish de-threat scumbags running away the few new players daring to venture the streets of San Paro.
They're imo almost as detrimental as the cheaters. (and don't get me started on your interfaces and new player tutorials lol, obviously they've been needing a re-haul since the years n years back when you announced the elusive engine upgrade)

Being online doesn't mean you're suddenly not responsible for who you are. Embarrassing, threatening, harassing, attacking and insulting - based on gender, race, nationality or simple difference of opinion? ...This shows who you are as a person, sitting behind the monitor. You think nobody will care? Think again.
