    I will never understand why they continue to try and pursue client-side measures, they will always be cracked, fundamentally the only way to keep them out is to keep as much of the of the anti-cheat server-side as possible.

    its a losing battle too, AI trained aim-bots are here and do not need to be run on the same pc, you can do it on a completely clean system now.

    Having dedicated servers was the best way to counter cheaters. Not perfect, but way better that these software measures.

    I only had one time when I found a server whose admins were playing dirty with the rules.
    It was in Medal of Honor Warfight, there was a server that was run by a clan, but if you killed any of it's members you got kicked immediately.
    At this time, there was only a handful of servers running. So there wasn't much choice.
    And the worst part was that all of them were just average, and I was significantly better than any of them.
    So I got kicked a few times. :D

    One time, back in the days of BF3 I was playing Metro. I was using the G3A2 and having one of those days when every shot was landing. And I was doing headshots left and right.
    So much so, that the other team started calling me cheater.
    Fortunately there were no sour admins there to kick me.

    I saw this coming and honestly.. good riddance. Devs should never post bold public statements about their new awesome anticheat software. It will make these groups even more interested in bypassing it asap.

    You really believe that these kids who play online competitive shooters so hard, that they are willing to buy, install and use cheat software, don't know how to change a MAC address? That's naive.

    I don't recall the server or the clan's name.

    Wasn't Starforce the one that was destroying CD/DVD roms? Back in 2005 - 2007...

    not only for this game there must be a rule for every game that has a multiplayer option must give/support dedicated servers at least 1 year for indie games and other games AAA titles 3 years or smthing like that. a game that has a new addition to game as a dlc not fix so the publisher must give another server support 1 year more after the release of the new dlc (like season).. this MUST be a RULE for every game publishers for multiplayer games..

    I don't ever remember it being so rife back in 2000 - 2011 but it was also different times back then. There was no esports or gamer marketing back then. Gaming I'll always remember so much better on PC back in the 2000s. No console matchmaking, dedicated servers, game mods, no DLCs and so on.

    Back then there were servers run by the community.
    People would form clans, rent their private servers and manage it.
    If they caught a cheater, they could ban him right away.
    Although is very possible to trick humans, no anti-cheat software is as good as humans at preventing cheaters.
    But companies today refuse to give the community the tools to manage their games.

    Neither did I. And it seems it sells a lot.
    Meaning there are many more cheaters on console, than we thought.

    This is so funny. I can't understand such people, who are willing to buy a proprietary HW (or SW) to gain an advantage in an online shooter. They must be such a sad no-lifers.
