Beware.. before you read this is a rant about cheaters.. yes, they are still out there.

I was playing CTF, Gazala as allied when someone (cant remeber his name but the tag was [DT]) dropped out of a plane and stole the flag. He then went over to the repair pad with the halftrack on it and seemed to dissapear.. his tag was still there.. it was like he was inside the fuel barell. Well, nearly the whole of the allied team was gathered around this barell with tanks and wespes but he didn't die. So I got out of my tank to take a closer look when a grenade flew out of it and blew me up.

We tried to kick him but the dam vote thing didn't last long enough so myself and my clanmate just ended up leaving the server.

Don't remeber if it was pure or not but still it was something i've never seen before and i was really annoyed by it.

Hi millie,

The normal, "getting inside the fuel tank/building" trick isn't technically a cheat, just unfair play, it's a problem with the clipping on the fuel tank and some building/bunkers where the player can get through a gap into the interior. It happens on Omaha Beach at the first bunker where I have seen some players get under the concrete by laying down on the floor at a particular point and crawling into the wall. All you needot know is the exact point where the clipping error occurs causet he skin texture covers the gap. The "pure" server setting won't fix that problem, DICE needs to go through their maps and fix errors like this and release them as part of a patch.

Have fun

Cheaters dont worry me. Its the tker's that piss me off. For a cheater he has to use some skill yet to play the game. And chances are ill still kick his ass.

I do tend to agree with VonMeyer, cheaters with no skill have little chance against a non-cheater with skillz. Never seen anyone on server I could really definately call a cheater actually. Only ppl taking advantage of accidental flaws in the game.

have fun

Exactly. I remember when Quake 3 first came out, there was this spot on Q3dm9 I believe that you could crawl into the wall and nobody could see you. From there you could rail anything in your sight. I remember getting fragged and wondering where the hell the shot came from.

ID fixed that in the next patch, hopefully EA will notice this. Mail EA about it.
