Titanfall Anti-Cheat Pairs Cheaters With Cheaters
You’ve cheated enough! As of last week Respawn Entertainment has begun enforcing anti-cheat measures on the PC version of Titanfall.
The game is using FairFight to detect players who are using illegal software and other means to cheat in the game. This past week saw the first wave of bans but we’ve yet to officially know as to how many exactly got shown the door.
The usage of the word “door” here does not necessarily mean that they have been permanently banned from the game. According to a post that details their anti-cheat system, Respawn explained that cheaters detected will be forced to play with other cheaters.
“You can play with other banned players in something that will resemble the Wimbledon of aimbot contests. Hopefully the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best, or these all-cheater matches could be frustrating for you. Good luck.”
Seems like there will be no redemption tickets for them and they’ll be stuck playing against other cheats for life. It gets worse though. Inviting a banned player to your party will have the game treat you all as cheating party. Hence, you’ll be then playing against other cheaters. To stop this, you’ll have to let your cheating friend go and find yourself a substitute.
“We will be continuing to tweak the algorithm over time to catch more cheaters,” Respawn promised at the end.
