I was in a server the other day, can't recall the name, and while I was playing as the commander I noticed that two people were getting points WAY too fast...like 2 points a second non-stop. One was on the Opposite team and one was on mine. The offenders being =*******= , =*******= , and a third accomplice =*******= . I saw where the three were gathered and watched them as one of them from the other team killed the guy from my team, and the third guy, also on my team, revived him over and over. I have heard of this exploit before but I have never seen it being practiced. I tried to have them voted out but because there were relatively few people in the server I couldn't get enough votes. What I ended up doing was getting in a chopper and just blasting the heck out of them every time they gathered together. Some of you may say this is just adding to the problem, but as far as I was concerned I didn't care if I got kicked for team killing cause it was no fun playing with these guys anyway. What do you do when you encounter cheating? Also, you can see that *******score is way out of proportion...the others that I checked don't have such outrageous scores, but maybe they haven't been cheating very much.

If they are cheating PB will eventually get them. If you have a problem with cheaters, best thing that you can do is just move on to a different server.

good question. A few of our members had this happen to them. They had to disconnect. I'd say the only thing you can do is kill the axis guy that is their accomplice. If you TK you'lll get the boot and they will continue to exploit. I hope that EA can correct this by limiting to how often the padels can be used. The med pacs I dont see any problem, maybe limit the amount they can distribute or heal (I dont use the med class that often, heal rate should deplete and have to replenish like engineer's wrench).

From my understanding of punkbuster, it will only check if someone is using some kind of hack or patch, not game exploits...I may be mistaken though.

Its called Point Digging. Its always going to happen. Punkbuster is not going to do anything about it. Just get over it and move on. The only thing you can do is ban them from your server. If its not your server, go to another server. People just have to learn that its going to happen all the time. Its just the way BF2 turned out. So please people, just move on and play the game.:beer:

They have sadi they will fix it all in the next patch. They are probably going to need to do something like limit the amount of time that can happen with someone being revived in that such way and if the same killer and same reviver keep on the same guy they get booted? Or mabey they just stop getting points for it.

There is no way to stop this from happening unless you limit the amount of points given in any "minute of time". and that will agrivate some people who pull off some strategicly sound maneuvers. As pencil said. Get over it and move along.

As long as there are games there WILL be exploits.I usually just stick to clan servers where an admin is present and I've seen very few problems.

I admit to doing this - I deliberately make them TK me until they get banned. Not very nice - but they shouldn't be cheating.
