He's full of shit. Nearly everytime we do a patch they start crashing like crazy. All that "Artificial Aiming" crap is is someone taking someone else's work and putting a wrapper on it and selling it to other idiots.
not decompiled. correct. There are rats everywhere.. even in the cheater community. gotta love it when rats turn on one another.
These Artificial Aiming clowns just take other people's work and wrap it up and sell it.
As an ex-coder myself I can say with a straight face I at least respect the work of a truly good coder that's written an aimbot. I absolutely don't respect anyone that cheats in a game using one of these tools but I can't help but admire the coding that's gone into making them. If someone has gone to that kind of trouble they have a talent I would love to harness properly.
Taking someone elses code.. and sticking it behind a paywall. not so much.
If you look at these sites they have cheats for every single major game out there and a lot of minor ones. I mean all of them.
We take a different approach on anti-hacking and because we're not a retail game like COD or BF3 (both of which are great games) we can take a longer view on the business side of investing in consistent anti-hack efforts. At some point box products usually stop worrying about it. They leave it to Punkbuster and other tools that do an ok job but can't possibly be as effective as having the code embedded in the game itself.
Hacking is a big problem and it's a constant fight. Hackers will always be there and we will always be chasing them and getting them out of the game. There is no magic bullet solution. People think that charging money fixes the problem. Guess what.. a lot of these idiots use stolen credit cards or other tactics our fraud department works against.
just because you see someone on the leaderboards doesn't mean they aren't already banned. there is some latency and some other issues we are still working on. This is not some PR campaign. I'm simply refuting an outright lie. I will not tell you with a straight face that there aren't people cheating. I can say that there are a whole lot less then there were a month ago because we're breaking their hacks as fast as they make them now and banning them. There is absolutely nothing reactive about what we're doing. We've focused on a proactive way to break hacks and it's working.
