    Wow hax are getting bad in this game. For the longest time I didn't notice any blatant hax, but for the last couple hours I couldn't find a game without out one. Still not as bad as some other games, but the problem seems to be growing. :( Oh well.

    How can you report someone that he is cheating?

    Log in to support.ea.com with your EA account.

    Click 'Contact us' and fill out the form. There is a section to attach screenshots too.

    Got a reply this morning from them

    Not sure contacting EA support is of any use. Better contacting Evenbalance or some of the streaming sites like pbbans? You would really need their GUID number to be effective. I bet EA support don't do a single thing about any of the reports.

    Anyway all these losers will get caught when the next ban hammer comes. Thats how it works.

    They let them get away with it for 2-3 weeks and then they all get mass banned and the cycle continues as new hacks are out and the next ban hammer comes.

    Either way I'm not too bothered anymore about these things I'm pretty much a casual gamer these days and rarely run into cheaters maybe once or twice a year and if I do I just change server. It's not hald as bad as say in MW2 where VAC just sucks no end.

    I understand it is more of a concern for people in clans playing competitively where this is a bigger issue.

    That is exactly how you are meant to do it.

    Evenbalance are to be contacted if you find a new hack program, EA contacted to report cheaters.

    That's always how its been done. DId you not read the reply I got from them above?

    It is a waste of effort really, because EA nor EB are going to act on any evidence you produce. Only supplying the hacks to get auto detected by PB will work.

    The only change to get them banned are with passing the edvidence to the server admin and get them banned per server or to get them put on the streaming ban list that is not supported be either EA or EB.

    Not much effort invloved.

    That's the procedure EA state on their forums, so that's whats done.

    For singling our single cheaters, PBBans recommends you contact EA also.

    And I seriously doubt supplying hacks to PB will help at all.

    All they have to do is go to artificialaimaing.net and other hack sites to get the hacks (paid hacks).

    If they were really that bothered, that's what they'd do.

    But its a bit like cancer research - if you cure it, your income stream is gone.

    Best for them to continue get paid by EA and whoever, and just ban accounts, rather than banning hacks that are providing them with revenue (indirectly).

    From what I've noticed, they're usually low rank "test" accounts or high rank accounts generated by the cheat.

    Deal with it in the pubs, or stick to a server with good admins.

    That is the thing though their not mass banning accounts, only few get banned. They mostly only ban known hacks and if detected they ban the player from PB enabled servers. Often it is just a temp ban too they only perm ban those who hack the PB software..

    Best thing to do is find a good well admined server and stick to it and any evidence pass to the admins there to add to their own ban list and by pass PB and EA who are too slow and too soft to be effective.

    Again, most clan servers stream to pbBans, so that generally keeps hacking in check. Granted, its up to Evenbalence to keep PB nice and updated, so there are periods where hacking becomes an issue.

    No, I just got done playing for a few hours.

    I occasionally have a problem where after I log in I can't join any servers and just get a "cannot connect to EA". This is fixed by exiting the game and logging back in.
