Two cents from a lurker. Maybe EA/Dice should get rid of personal scores completely, and just have a team based score. This I think would discourage cheating and encourage teamplay. I could care less about my score. I'm just looking for a fun game. I'm sure everybody's best BF game experience had a large amount of teamwork in it. I think it has happened for me two or three times. It seems a lot of people are just playing for their score. It will never happen though. I'll probably even get flamed for saying this. Just my two cents.
Any modders want to work on a mod that doesn't show player scores?
Well granted not everyone cheats and it is only a few but those few can ruin the game for all.I can live with getting killed by someone with skill or the odd lucky shot but take last night as an example playing Aberdeen. I'm in a Panzer on the ass of a Sherman and I hit him 7 times and he turns around and with one shot takes me out.. Skill... I don't think so. Now I am not saying I agree with Dice/EA on this as I personally don't use any of the mods or skins (and some of them are damn good) but something has to be done. Granted Dice/EA should perhaps set up some kind of dialogue with the Modding community to address this issue but I doubt that will get done. The long and the short of it is (and some will not like to hear this but don't flame me!) It is their game and they can do what they like with it.Just because we buy the game doesn't mean we own it. The only thing we can do is stop playing it if we don't like it.(which I don't plan on doing anytime soon!) The question then becomes what can WE do as a community to stop the cheating? I don't know..... suggestions? S
I know that a lot of peeps are looking forward to the new patch for the simple reason of no cheats online. If dice/ea & nvidia servers go "pure" then i will be interested to see if the same peeps complaining about cheats, will play on some servers where all the good players hang out & will finally realise that "hey they weren't cheating before, its just that i'm crap at this game" ;-) & after you've been playing for a while you'll get bored of the "out of the box" look to the game & be stuck with it. Long live the Merciless mod !!!!!
"1. i should kill u for being happy for the next patch"
AH, the twelve year olds have spoken,lol. Idiot.
sejanus: Doesn't sound like a cheat, most likely it was just the crappy net code and hit detection thingy.....
Because of damn Counterstrike everyone seems paranoid about cheating, yes it can and probably will get bad. But its hardly noticible right now. I join a Counterstrike server and I see plenty blatent cheaters, alot of the time they're talking about there 'l33t Aimbot skillz' this totally ruins the game for me and is the reason why I no longer play CS.
But in all the time i've spent playing Battlefield, I might have seen 2-3 people that were obvious cheaters. Sure I see unusual things like enemy tanks taking massive ammounts of damamge, but that can be easily explained as being the crap netcode. I once saw a post on this forum about someone trying to ban all these people he saw flying impossibly fast in planes on Coral sea. He didn't seem to know that if you dive the plane you actully go faster
[COLOR=burlywood]Actually, Ranger, he said they were flying all across the map at that speed. Not diving and going into it, you just interpreted it that way. If we're talking about the same thread, that is.[/COLOR]
I rarely see fast planes except dive bombers, but I HAVE seen super fast jeeps (especially Kubels) such as going from the base across the bridge full speed in a Kubel on Hsuky, a teammate's kubel flies right by at almost twice the speed and he wsa promptly banned! I have seen posts in cheat discussions that they exist, it's silly as I thought the Kubel is already fast enough!
