    EA are so kind to cheater develoment they give them 10h for free to see if their cheat is undected if it gets detected alter cheat some more and test again untill its undeteced.
    They gotta remove this free testing and it will get fewer cheaters becouse i dont think people wanna fork out full game cost everytime they get banned.

    Given that's its clearly not working well I'd rather not see it not working well. So would love to hid it.

    Rainbow Six Seige is probably the most cheat free game on the market due to BattleEye. Overwatch is close and CSGO is also pretty good. Battlefield 1 with BattleEye or a custom state of the art anticheat developed in-house by EA would do wonders for this game. They really should get on it before BattleFront 2 comes out.

    Really, they know that long term the platform that will provide longevity for this game is PC. They want those battlepacks/skins to sell? Get the cheating sorted. Look at how much Rainbow Six Seige has grown since they fixed their cheating problem.

    Like it or not, the PC is the platform for competitive FPS, it always has been and probably always will be. You want your game to be a watched title on Twitch and bring in tons of money long after you created the initial content? Fix the cheating problem, have tight balanced gameplay and profit.

    R6S is full of cheating. BattlEye was ok for clearing out some of the cheats during an epidemic of cheating. But cheats have found ways around it. I feel sure that people are experimenting with AI in games as well. Question is whether people will continue spending lots of money on PCs for gaming. If most gamers are ok with cheating because they cheat themselves then I think cheating in PC gaming will just be accepted.

    Its still happening and its really annoying, any chance they can turn it off like before.

    It really is as useless as a chocolate teapot.

    If DICE turns off the spam announcement, then everyone will think Fairfight isnt doing anything.

    EA is soft on cheaters because console sales outsell PC 10:1. Why invest money on anti-cheat when PC platform makes the least amount of money. It's simple business logic.

    Did you know EA gives out unlimited free trial accounts that let cheaters play for free over and over again?

    https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/free-games/trials

    I'll never buy another EA multiplayer game on the PC platform. I'm considering buying a Xbox One X but having a hard time justifying the cost, considering the CPU is less powerful than an i3 processor. It would solve the cheating problem though because unsigned code (cheats) can't run on console hardware. So long as the hardware hasn't been jailbroke. Which neither the Xbox One or PS4 has been.

    Guess I'll wait for Xbox One X benchmarks and make my decision. One things for sure, EA has lost my confidence in their ability to protect the PC platform from cheaters. The new competitive mode for BF1 is going to be nothing more than competitive cheating on PC.

    You guys read any of the cheat development forums? They laugh at FairFight's screenshot feature and write screenshot cleaners which provide clean screenshots to FairFight on a per-frame basis every 16ms less. These **** cleaners even defeat FairFight when it takes two consecutive screenshots back-to-back milliseconds apart and injects color coding data in order to tell of the two screenshots are identical or unique.

    So yeah, this is why I'm looking to consoles in order to enjoy a cheat free experience in EA multiplayer games.

    Those trials are for Origin Access though, and right now you get most of those games free anyway. I can't be sure, of course, because I have Access and I'm not making another account to test it. :)

    The Xbox One S is a fairly powerful little thing though, with dynamic scaling and the rest of it, and all the games you get are optimised for the architecture. CPU doesn't matter, but the S and the X have real 8 core Jaguars (not the shared compute modules like Bulldozer). So I haven't noticed any issues playing on it, and I think that although the PS4 probably looks a bit better it suffers from framerate drops - its dynamic scaling isn't as efficient.

    Although fair warning, Battlefield is a different experience because nobody PTFOs. Call of Duty and Titanfall are much more fun. And I have the One X on order, because I've seen it playing FM7 and F1 2017 at 4k 60fps. One X's graphics performance is supposed to be on par with an RX 580. But I don't know. I just know that even with the One S it's a great substitution for online gaming.

    It's really not, on the popular public sites there are virtually ZERO hacks that have broken through BattleEye. You can't ever stop cheats, nobody can stop cheats and no game is cheat free on PC. CSGO, Rainbow Six Seige, and Overwatch are very low cheat in general. I see more cheat in Battlefield 1 for sure, but even BF1 these days isn't unbearable. Only PC game that has unbearable cheating is Call of Duty.

    I hate the fact that its enforced in the servers. I do not want those fairfight messages in the chat box for they are nothing but spam.

    Agreed, if the message isn't actually naming the players so we know the guy with "78-3" is/was hacking then what's the point?

    "FAIRFIGHT BANNED A PLAYER" spam (should really be titled as per game message in caps).

    Started sometime this afternoon. Spamming messages every 30 seconds or so.

    Has it got that bad at detection now that you cant even name the players its banning due to so many false positives and false negatives?

    The sharp enders think they can hood wink us idiots into thinking
    they are stopping cheaters.

    It was in overdrive last night, one point there was about 10 in a minute.

    Very annoying and utterly useless. Please Remove.

    Problem here is the useless spam that means nothing, before names were listed be them correct or incorrect bans, now it just says FAIRFIGHT BANNED A PLAYER.

    What difference does it make if it banned a random unknown player and why change the messages to show no name? I suspect either, the ban rate of fairfight is pathetic as we already know. If fairfight was working there would be many more bans than the messages indicate. OR They now have that little confidence in the banning process that they cannot identify the players banned as its incorrectly naming and shaming players that will be unbanned in a couple of days with no explanation or apology.

    Here is an idea, stop messing around with silly messages and do something about the blatant aimbotters that are not detected as this tinkering is getting boring and unproductive.

    LOL do you realize this game would be dead if they found a way to ban all cheaters. really surf the web they say (if I remember right) 80% + are cheaters in FPP games. I spawn Immediately I am being shot or 2 tap killed. I love BF games but on pc I am not good enough to compete with so many cheaters.

    I think 80% is a little exaggerated

    Its what I read. that's for all FPP games so I'm sure the % would be higher agreed??

    Still sounds way high. If you are "underperforming" in Battlefield its not because of cheats btw.

    How do you know certain people don't come up against cheaters on a regular basis in a game that has no AC to catch and stop ESP, rage and closet cheaters?!...enough to knock their performance that is. Are you sitting there watching over people's shoulder?! That's a rather ludicrous call to make otherwise.

    Cheating is at an all time high in BF1. Cheats have made a lot of folk pack it in. It is certainly possible many are indeed underperforming due to the level of cheats in this game. Without any ac, you are no wiser than anyone else as to how many are indeed cheating. It could be much more of a problem than you might want to believe based on the numbers playing at peak vs the amount of downloads for 'extra skill'. I'd put cheating up around 35% of the pc playerbase but it's hard to know how many are active currently. Still a crazy amount compared to previous BFs which had PB.. metabans.. bf4db.. 247fairplay.. admins.. procon. BF1 is a cheaters paradise! Really hope that changes soon and on the qt. Imagine the banwaves!! Might knock numbers substantially at first but the game would become very popular once word got around it was clean(er).

    I'd be surprised if its more than 5% to be honest (which would be still quite high mind you) but you do you xD
    You dont sit behind those people that claim to have "quit" due to "cheating" either.

    I have been in the same rounds as friends where 2 or 3 blatant cheaters ruined the match and made it one sided. These friends are highly regarded and mature professionals. Based on my own experiences in BF1, I would take their word for it. (Our figures are actually rather close.) The evidence/facts are there for anyone to research. BF1 has some of the highest levels of cheating sadly due to EA's and Dice's poor choices of scrapping PB, Procon and other ac helpouts.
