Leaving PC online gaming for Xbox 360 multiplayer cause of hacking.

post #1 of 68
Thread Starter 
I didn't play too many online shooters a while back, spent my time on WOW. I tried out BFBC2 and i sucked at it. So i waited till BF3 came out and was ready to test my skills again since my original xbox days. Things were going good at the launch and beta. It became evident that I was pretty good at it and i enjoyed the large maps and players. Then things started going downhill after that. A few players started getting rediculous K:D ratios and i started wondering how they could do that because of the way the game is designed that you can't really die once for about 30 kills. I started suspecting that a few people managed to get their hands on a few hacks. I thought BF3 would have better security implemented to avoid ruining the game. After a month of playing, i caught a server owner blatently banning me for calling out his friend who aimbotted the whole server while at the same time promoting the banning of random hackers. So I waited for EA to start the ban hammer on these people and it was sorta effective at launch, but now they are everywhere. I even avoided buying MW3 because I would get the same experience there too. One day I randomly decided to google aimbots and found out that people paid subscriptions for some of them. The funny part about this whole thing is that when I complained about cheating on the forums, there were so many people who said those players were just skilled and there were only a couple of cheaters. Some of those people even said they haven't even encountered a cheater in their whole time playing and that I was just raging cause i sucked.

It became apparent to me that there is a culture of elitism and denial with BF3. Some people cheat to feel good about themselves for "owning" other gamers and the others feel that the game is too hard for them that they dont know when they've been had. We all know about that guy who can't shoot someone 10 metres in front of him and can't tell if they died from sucking or an aimbotter. Only when some idiot runs around one shotting people from across the map without a scope is when its "evident there is a cheater".

So I tried my best to put up with it and just play the game with the cheaters. I just couldnt' handle it because I get pissed off when I try to test my skill against people and make a few fun kills here and there, but then i realize that the whole effort to take objectives and push the front was just ended by one hacker. This effect isn't just limited to the scope of one area too. It decides the whole round because of the fact that these cheaters have a disproportionately large advantage. Some of them will even turn off the headshots and just go for the neck and such, which results in them being more than twice as combat effective as you are. Imagine two people shooting each other at the same time and if one guy was using a rifle and the other a handgun, who do you think would win? I simply refuse to play like that.

So I'm going back to the xbox 360. People dont hack that thing as much because their console would get banned and not every person can easily google up aimbots. I'm willing to put up with the smaller player limit because of this. Maybe I'll enjoy going back to the controller and the difficulties of moving around with it. Unfortunately, it will be with casual gamers and not the hardcore ones that I expected from PC gamers.

Right now the Xbox 360 4Gb model is going on sale for 130 dollars at futureshop. I'm gonna get the VGA adapter kit to play it on my Dell u2311h monitor. Basically, its gonna turn into my second gaming thing whenever i feel like shooting people.

One last note. I know, I know. Don't let the door hit you on your way out. I dont think i'll mind a few teenagers and some grown ups with wives or girlfriends who let them play only a few hours. I just wanted to hear some opinions on how you see this so I can at least know if i did the right thing.

Play on well known servers with active admins is the best advice I can give. Also it is possible to have good K-D ratio if you play extremely safe. Recons playing the sniping game while flying/placing their mav's nearby are very hard to sneak up on. What servers/modes are you playing on?

Enjoy the graphics!

I've had a few games with hackers, and if there is one I just leave the server and find another. No different then any other fps with dedicated servers.

I stopped playing BF3 for the same reason, plus the game is kind of bad. IMO you should try out the Tribes Ascend Open Beta, it's free and really fun. There's also a lot of good single player games you can play like Skyrim and Crysis that are much better on PC thanks to mods. I don't really blame you though, being forced to either only play in certain servers or quit games because people are cheating is a huge turn off.

TBH i havn't encountered any hackers in BF3.... i guess it all comes down to which servers you play on.
