I never accused you of twisting my words. And I’m surely not doing it to you. It would be a lot easier if you would reply to me directly and use quotations if you’re going to say things like that. Because otherwise I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’m guessing you were referring to the segment in which you talked about Gears 5 being “worse” or having “fear” of cheaters? Ya, that’s not going to be an issue. Gears UE wasn’t a problem, Gears 4 isn’t a problem, and Gears 5 won’t be either. I mean, you said “rampant” hacking as if that’s ever happened in any Gears game ever… When you say things like that you are pretty much insinuating the idea that the game isn’t payable. However, I never said those were your words. You came up with that on your own. Probably because you truly believe that but don’t want to admit it because it’s a ridiculous argument.
I would love an anti cheat system that;s full proof. Fortunately Windows Store Games is almost at that point, Combine that with The Xbox Enforcement Team and its incredibly difficult to be a concurring offender. But is it “prevalent”? Not in the slightest. I think you need to Google what that word means because it’s factually speaking not prevalent.
Not even one hacker should be allowed. But what you are suggesting is the issue I have with this, Are we going to remove Cross-Play entirely because of the almost nonexistent hackers in this game? Like I said, out of the hundreds of thousands of players this Game had, there was only a handful of hackers. Your solution is way too extreme for something like that. And if you’re not suggesting to remove Cross-Play then please let me know what you have in mind.
I’m sure It’s very frustrating. But I don’t think they got to Diamond 5 by hacking. Unless it was a preexisting account or a smurf account that was directly put into Diamond 5 after their first 5 matches. And I’m sure their account was removed. There’s not a chance in hell hackers are getting reported on Xbox and the Enforcement Team did nothing. Most first time offenders and all repeat offenders of hackers on Xbox either get their accounts Perma banned or their console’s completely bricked from going online in any game. Therefore these hackers would have to go out and buy brand new Xbox’s, Xbox Live, and Gears 4 all over again just to hack Gears of War; no that’s not happening.
I completely believe that you may have experienced a hacker. What I don’t believe is that this is happening to you over and over again. I’m not going to put a number on it but over the course of 2 years if you compare the percentages of people you’ve played with against people who were hackers I don’t think that would fit the word “prevalent”.
Wonderful. More people should have that mindset.
And I will gladly back you up and report these people. But I don’t know where they are…
I don’t expect people to take time out of their lives just to satisfy some other dude on the internet. Unlike some people on the forums… So sending me a clip really isn’t necessary. As I said before, I completely believe you. What I’m not on board with is that you’re dealing with this over and over again in a short period of time.
