    It's not about the developers making the game uncheatable because that's literally impossible, if they can build a wall someone else can break it down. It's about making a real effort to fight against cheating and accepting that if you want your competitive online game to survive you're going to have to fight this as hard as you can forever.

      There are NO games that are cheater free. Every single online game is full of these losers. It ruins them all.
      You can find a game with 100 players, 12 years old, no budget, and you will still have many cheaters. Its that bad now.

    G0at uploaded an update video and I'm still giggling about a point he made in it.
    He points out that the cheat creators actually advise that players running them uninstall Valorant and Vanguard because Vangaurd actually catches their cheats...
    I found that utterly hilarious, Riots own anti cheat Vanguard for a totally different game is catching some of these cheats while on it's tea break 🤣
    There was way more in it so well worth a watch 🤗

    The radar hacks are even more insane. They run off a separate computer and read packets from your router to display a fully interactive map of everything on your 2nd PC. All the loot on the map, all the peoples real time location and direction, absolutely everything. It's insane. And no software is being run on the main PC.

      This was what made me quit really. Id rather die to an aimbot and KNOW i died to a cheater, than have this constant nagging suspicion that this or that person might have cheated and i would never know. Especially in a game like tarkov where theres so many oppurtunities for the enemy to aquire info on you without you knowing.

    The tarkov situation is so sad because I have nearly 2k hours in the game at this point and you get pretty good at telling when stuff is off. This wipe me and my friends all noticed how it was just so much more rampant. We realized how bad it was when we started on purpose looking away in fights and every time we would suddenly get pushed like clockwork. It was so consistent. We would use keys on rare loot rooms and more times than not it would be empty because someone sucked it all up. You would check the flea market and 50 graphics cards just up for sale in a bundle. It was too much and even though it was my most successful wipe it was also the most soulless and I quit

      I've gotten that in the past when I actually bothered with competitive multiplayer games. That was one of the best feelings when everything falls into place and you just dominate a match. I remember I had someone call me a cheater in an old 360 modern warfare 2 match. I had a sniper in a ghillie suit agaist the hedge wall in whatever map it was called. Died once getting to the wall, but clean sweep to the nuke afterward. Very short match. Never happened again but it was amazing.

      @King Karlito i don't mean 2b a punk, but i believe his take was along the lines of revealing the focus of the video, & using his insider information on his own you tube video, & ruin the hype behind his friend's own video.. if you were hip to yt analytics, you would know that the initial numbers post upload is reliant on not being 2nd to cover an issue, especially a niche one.. plus being the 1 who did all the work, and then your video was discussed on a larger channel, could've also went the other way fairly easily.. i think1 of the reasons why it didn't, is cuz luke withheld specific details, and didn't bring up the video to do anything maliciously, so his respected character acted more in an advertisement/ cosign, vs the opposite--which is why the idea is far from DAFT

      @Alex Bebb The way Luke is talking about it, it was pretty unplayable already. The only people who still play Tarkov are the diehards who enjoy the game in spite of the rampant cheaters and game-breaking bugs. If anything, this is a wake-up call to the Tarkov devs that if they don't get their shit together, their days are numbered.
      And really, the only aspect of the game this video "ruined" is that now the cheaters have to play against other cheaters more often, effectively leveling the playing field once more.

      ​@Alex Bebb He ruined everyone's fun by saying that the emperor indeed has no clothes?
      As someone who has already checked out of any PvP game, regardless of how you view the experience, the only thing he has ruined is people's willful ignorance towards this. Like Luke said at the beginning, _cheating is rampant._
      The fact that major televised eSports tournaments can feature players who still try to get away with cheating should say how commonplace it is. G0at hasn't done anything but inform, and if it ruins things for you, that's entirely on you.

    It was nuts seeing Luke show up in g0at's video and everything he said about the problems with Tarkov are 100%. However I think there's something important that he left out (most likely because he wasn't aware) about Nikita, the project lead of Tarkov and the COO of BSG: he is on record saying that cheaters are good for business. His previous project was a F2P shooter riddled with MTX's and P2W stuff and he's talked about how constantly banning cheaters was good for a game because they'll "buy more copies". This is why nobody trusts BSG when they talk about cheaters.

      @Dark because Tarkov isn't as popular as people think it is and it's a game that more people enjoy watching than they do playing. It has some serious design flaws that keep it from actually being great and is hamstrung by developer incompetence.

    This is why I miss servers with admins on it that was some random player. They could be toxic sure, but you can favorite servers that you liked. And most of them could view a player anytime during the match and kick them or ban them depending on the situation. It was like a forum administration of a small company that is a super fan of them doing it for free. Which in the gaming community happens very often when there is 100-1,000+ players. I never played Valorant as I heard even being AFK can get you banned/temp banned or even quitting in the middle of a match.

      @Gry Gaming disagree. i played alot of BF4. most servers owners were pretty fair on who were good players that dominated those servers... as long as they were playing legitimately. there were always a good portion of ''badmins'' that would kick legitimate high-skilled players out of servers due to them being well...''bad'', and got salty over being farmed over and over again. Most guys I played with (including myself) would not get kicked out of servers or have issues on servers when on super high killstreaks.

      No kidding, during Battlefield 3/4 days....I had 20 servers and donated to at least 10 of them to keep them operational. Those games were never complete blowouts, victory was always decided by no more than 10-20 points. The funny part was, if you played enough you got to know who were the good players and people on both sides actively hunted them down to make them a non-factor in fights often leading to someone going on a 30kill tear....or seeing the said guy run around in a tank just to not die every time they popped their head out.

      Cheating was much less of an issue when we could host our own servers.
      I ran Day of Defeat Source, Team Fortress 2, and Red Orchestra 2 servers for quite a few years.
      It was labour intensive, but we had a good community that we could rely on and know that our matches would be fair and enjoyable for all.

    This sort of thing happened a ton in Dark Ages of Camelot back in the day, but we didn't have dedicated content creators exposing how bad it was, so we never knew exactly how bad it got. No one ever believed me, for instance, when I said I was keeping an eye on a warband from outside of render distance - while also being at the very edge of the zone and behind a tree - and then as soon as they got within render distance the whole warband turned on a dime and came straight for me. Up a hill, through a forest, around the huge tree I was behind and smashed me, then they returned to their original heading. (In DAoC you could zoom out REALLY far. Like almost all the way to render distance for objects.) After that, I questioned EVERYTHING, that happened. How much were people cheating? Was it just radar? What else were they doing? Had no way of knowing and very few people even agreed that it was possible.

    It's nuts. I've had at least 5-10 instances where I knew that I had gotten within earshot without them hearing me, like they were sprinting while I was sneaking. I'd be trying to wait for them to leave. And then for no reason they come in my direction, a direction they realistically should have never gone, they walked straight up to me and mag dumped me... I was certain he was going to walk on by.
    To be clear. I once had to take a phone call in the middle of a match on customs. I went prone in a bush on the side of old gas. I was on the phone for 10-20 minutes of the raid, I watched 6 players walk within 15 feet of me, and continued on, they had plain sight visuals of the bush I was laid prone in and not one shot me. I then went on to safely extract, and then to be on a map like woods, hiding in one of the thousands of bushes on the map, and then having a guy come straight to me and shoot me, it legitimately is a near 0 chance that they would have been able to identify me in a bush when being even decently stealthy.

    The invisible player thing is interesting because it sounds like a moderator/admin function. Like something someone would use to monitor players for cheating without getting in the way of the game. Identical functions have been put in other online games for this exact reason. If for some reason that's the case, that there is some mod/admin privileges being given randomly to players, then it could be a pretty big security flaw.

    It is now 20 years since I joined my first online game and I felt like I would be playing it for life at the time. It awoke all sorts of positive feelings in me. Cheaters were present from the start, but it was never anything too invasive; just some dope who would rather have his computer play the game for him, while he'd go pleasure himself to his favorite episode of Inuyasha or whatever, but after a little under 5 years, the bots were running the game. Entirely. It's a meme now, but it was "literally unplayable". It's so heartbreaking.

      GamersLounge you can detect it by reverse engineering the AI.

      Plus there are just things player can't do and you will be able to detect that. Repeat inhuman reaction time and control.
      There not easy or fast fix to advance cheats but there is a solution to all of them.

They really need a replay system so i can at least figure out what I can do to get better or if the guy was just cheating.

    The downside to game streaming as a counter measure to cheating, is it would drastically increase the bandwidth requirements to play online, increasing the bar for entry past what some (maybe a most if my friend groups are much to go by) players have access to in their area.

    I always feel like when players do that with games is to basically kill it from the inside and pushing the devs to fix stuff, from what I'm hearing is that Tarkov basically need an Overwatch system just like CSGO and a heavy anti cheat system

      @MoA-Reload... "CS:GO is a f2play title so cheats have far less on the line if/when they get caught and banned. "
      That's largely irrelevant because of Steam accounts. No one will play with you if you have a VAC. They would obviously do it on throw away accounts, but then, why is it that the hackers I see aren't on fresh accounts?
      Even then, it's CSGO is it not? One of if not the largest Esports title ever? Created by one of the largest game developers ever? If they can't prevent hackers no one can. Yet people hold BSG to a higher standard for some reason.
      "CS:GO is also far more CQB with very little cover in comparison so it's far more obvious when someones pre-firing round corners or snapping to target."
      Yeah and when they're spinning around in circles headshotting everything it's super blatant. Which is something I've never seen in Tarkov.
      "A lot of deaths in Tarkov you're on the deck wondering "where did that come from?" and that's the game. "
      I'll get called an elitist prick here, but that's only really true before you have appropriate map knowledge. I rarely ever don't understand how I died. It's extremely rare. 99% of my deaths I understand exactly how I died. That said, I hear this complaint a lot, and I really don't know how to address it. I sincerely believe it's just people that lack map knowledge and maybe don't understand the audio. There are certain spots on basically every map that I simply won't go. There are ways into Resort that I never take. Once you eliminate some of those factors your deaths will make a lot more sense.
      "The other thing to consider with the content creators is while you have many hours in the game I very much doubt you're clocking in the time some of the streamers are pulling. "
      Yeah that's true, and I watch a few streamers casually. I've never been a big fan of Twitch but streamers helped me understand the game when I was first learning. That said, Streamers aren't getting hacked on in 60% of their raids. On top of that, hackers likely target streamers because they're streamers. So if anything that would actually inflate the casual hacking occurrences they experience. But when I talk about not trusting them, I mean, I seriously 100% believe that half the people Goat ran into were his friends. I seriously 100% believe that many content creators get their friends to log on throwaway accounts and install fly hacks to make a video that'll reach 100k views when their normal videos hit 10k. I'm genuinely at the point where the only thing that would change my mind is seeing all of the footage, unedited, with load screens and everything so I know they're actually going in solo. It's way way too easy to stage this stuff, and they have a direct financial incentive to do it. If there's financial incentive to do something in life, you can be damned sure it's being done. Period. End of story.
      "Couple of wipes ago "
      So my personal opinion from my experiences is that hacking was worse off a couple wipes back. I feel BSG really got a hold on the issue last wipe, and this wipe I've seen even less questionable incidents. I had four last wipe and one so far this wipe. I've never seen fly hackers, never seen blatant hackers, etc etc. The five I mention could actually be legitimate players with extremely good luck.
      "the borked sound."
      I feel you man, I took a solid break earlier this wipe because the sound was just broken. It does feel a lot better now though.
      "Plenty of times I've been kllled and wondered "wtf was that?" but then default to "wp to them I suppose". "
      Same here, but mostly because I've had a fair amount of people add me over the years and accuse me of hacking. I'm not even that great at the game, I think I'm sitting around 6.0 KD right now with a 61% survival rating. I'm not a Tarkov god, but I still get accused of hacking. Then I see some of the shots Streamers pull off. There was this one video a streamer did awhile back about an encounter that he swore was a hacker, but it ended up being another streamer who was also recording. It turns out that he didn't even get killed by the person he thought he did. It was in Interchange, and he scoped down the hallway between a bunch of obstacles and saw a head, then he died. He assumed that the guy got an impossible shot off considering all the debris and obstacles. Turns out it was actually the guys team mate on the second floor of Interchange. I'm dead certain that the majority of hackusations are the result of situations like that, desync, audio glitches, general lag, and players that are just cracked out.
      ""they're just straight up invisible""
      I'm not going to deny that was happening, but I never actually saw it this wipe. Well, actually, I sort of did. I entered a raid with my buddy and he was invisible, to me. I crashed half way through the raid and when I relogged I could see him. Other people could see him as well. So it wasn't really an invisible player, but, yeah. That's a serious glitch and I understand people being upset about it and holding BSG accountable for it.
      "I do find it less likely that a whole community of CC's are BSing for the views though, "
      There are quite a few CCs that don't create that sort of content and called out people like Goat. It's not universal, I probably should have phrased all that better. But yeah, the ones really hyping this stuff up-- just look at their average view counts compared to the views they get when talking about hackers. That creates an incentive for them to embellish and even stage the events. New CCs see that as well, they study the successful ones etc.
      "Big gamble to BS about something like that as when found out, that's their reputation derped and for what? "
      How could it ever really be proven though. They're pretty safe, and I think a lot of them see that the community is pretty gullible-- or rather, people in general often let their preconceived notions get confirmed by others with less critical thinking than normal. If they want to believe, and someone gives them a good reason to believe it, they won't question it as much as if they didn't want to believe it.
      "I don't think I've seen a community as good sports as Tarky players."
      That's why this drama frustrates me. You're right. In general the average Tarkov player is really chill. However like I said above about preconceived notions, I'm really worried that all this drama will change things. Why would the average player give a damn about anyone else in game when they're now convinced that the average player is actually a hacker. I think it's going to seriously erode the comradery.
      I just wish there was a way to prove it, even if I'm wrong. I'd just like to see hard evidence I guess. What I've seen so far is so ridiculously easy to stage and fabricate that I just don't buy it-- especially when it goes so far from my personal experiences. I understand anecdotal evidence doesn't mean much, but after thousands of hours? With my duo who also has thousands of hours coming to the exact same conclusions I have before we even discussed the drama?
      Sorry for the wall of text, and thanks for responding with more than just vitriol.

      MoA-Reload... 27 dni temu +3

      @Defiance A few differences, CS:GO is a f2play title so cheats have far less on the line if/when they get caught and banned. Tarkov is bloody expensive so they're far more cautious. CS:GO is also far more CQB with very little cover in comparison so it's far more obvious when someones pre-firing round corners or snapping to target. A lot of deaths in Tarkov you're on the deck wondering "where did that come from?" and that's the game. The other thing to consider with the content creators is while you have many hours in the game I very much doubt you're clocking in the time some of the streamers are pulling. I mean, it's their job so they're far more likely to be clocking 8-10 hour sessions on the regular and covering all times, not just peak and wknds. Couple of wipes ago streamer I mod for went ham on it and was pulling 15-16 hour streams for the first 6 days. Rest of that wipe he was pushing for Kappa and played in a couple of tournaments so while it wasn't idiotic hours, it was still 30+ per week.
      I do get exactly what you mean though. I only stopped playing due to the borked sound. Plenty of times I've been kllled and wondered "wtf was that?" but then default to "wp to them I suppose". It also doesn't help that this wipe latency is even more "interesting", Streets is an unoptimized mess and the good ole sound staging is somehow even worse. Plenty of sus kills can be put on lag, sound bug, the oh so fun looking "they're just straight up invisible" that was going on early wipe but same goes the other way. How many deaths are players assuming it was game bug or latency when it wasn't? I can't say with 100% certainty you're wrong. I do find it less likely that a whole community of CC's are BSing for the views though, especially the full timers and variety streamers. Big gamble to BS about something like that as when found out, that's their reputation derped and for what? A bump in views for a niche title that for some of them isn't even the game they're known for?
      I will say this for Tarkov, out of all the games streamed I don't think I've seen a community as good sports as Tarky players. Streamer I mod for carries TTV in his name so it's a regular thing that he'll pop someone and they land in chat. Obviously we get the childish spit their dummy out rants(it's the internet, can't expect to much) BUT most are really good sports and land in to say wp and ask how he got them and if anyone clipped it. Us Mods are usually happy when he quits Ships for the day and starts up Tarkov. Much nicer bunch to mod 🤗

    I'd say an acceptable level of cheating in multiplayer games is any amount low enough that it feels like a rare occurrence to run into a cheater, and that most people's default reaction to someone claiming to have been owned by a cheater is just "no, they were probably just better than you".

      @Defiance If you really had "thousends" of hours then you would know, atleast if you've played the last 2 years or so.

Me personally i'm more angry at the hundreds or more content creators who DIDN'T IN FACT talk/show their community what is Actually GOING ON! SO, if you're still dead set on saying "eh there are no cheaters, the game is perfectly fine as it is" then you're just naive and NOT well informed about the whole situation!
      Fyi: Nikita said so himself that the cheater situation is out of control atm and who doesn't like it can go. So I and many others did. If you want to keep playing than go right ahead. I've said my peace.

    Luke's conclusion is the same as mine but back when I played Starcraft 1 and Counterstrike 1.6. Back then, it was real common to see cheaters in seemingly every game using obvious means but with no way from my point of view to combat it. From my memory, Starcraft 1 cheaters would use invincible cheap units (zerglings and marines for example) and Counterstrike 1.6 cheaters would use obvious aimbots (aim snapping and 100% perfect recoil/bullet spread). Those were ones I could detect just from playing the game. It's why I nowadays don't really pay attention to competitive online games presently because the chance of getting a fair match is just way too low. I share your pain Luke.

    I started playing tarkov a few years ago, and have also quit (2 wipes ago-ish). The cheater problem got progressively worse very quickly. It used to be fairly rare, 1 out of 50 raids you'd die in a sketchy way.
    My theory is that, after the game blew up with twitch drops etc etc, the RMT market really came to life. This incentivized more people to cheat. Labs became unplayable, since it was the highest value map by far, naturally pulling cheaters in for the best return on their time. Then, with a few changes, they started to spread out to other maps.
    I think over time, people started to cheat to counter cheaters. And now we're here. In comparison with every other FPS game I've played for the past 15ish years, I maybe questioned my death ~1% of the time or less. With tarkov, it unironically feels like 1/5 deaths are sketchy enough to question the other players legitimacy, which just causes pent up frustration due to the uncertainty and the massive time loss that each death brings. I could deal with BR's having a cheater every 5 matches, but in tarkov? Where you sink 3hrs of your life into the game just to buy 1 gear set and then all of that ends in you getting 1 tapped by a cheater? Nah, pass.

    I remember back in the day when the original MW2 came out, there were some cheaters but it wasn't enough to ruin the game for me. Then the next game came out and MW2 just got flooded with cheaters. It was fun at first since some of the hacked lobbies were custom game modes and low gravity, but it got to a point where every single match someone had a UAV cheat and made it impossible to have fun unless you were cheating as well. At a certain point, if you let the cheaters get out of hand, there is no going back.

    I'm on my 3rd wipe, and I love this game (setting my loadout now, getting ready to solo rat around woods looking for that damn sledgehammer). I'm a lucky case, haven't 'seen' an invisible player or flying player, but watched G0ats video (and many of the other videos supporting or being triggered by it) and can think of a few instances where I probably got 'ESP'd. I record my games, and go back to scrutinize my deaths and successful engagements to try and get gud. More than half the time I never saw someone, watching again i can see a muzzle flash in a bush, or something. It's disheartening to think about all the cheating, but after playing games on PC since before the NES even released, and playing some HARD games, NOTHING has challenged me like this brutal insane game. It made me basically drop a 15 year wow addiction because, as a no-longer raiding casual, that game was a simple faceroll and every second of Tarkov, you need to be on your game (99% solo player). I'm sad you decided to stop for now, and hope things can be done about cheating. Love the WAN show guys, and although it's a 'negative' subject, it was very exciting to watch you guys go in depth talking about Tarkov!

    What's surprising to me about this is that it has been known for YEARS that every match in Tarkov has cheaters. There was a guy who went on Reddit a while back and came clean about cheating and revealed this information. There was always someone in the lobby with some form of cheat according to them. They had a whole spreadsheet of their raids and how many cheaters were in each one if I remember correctly

    I’ve got pretty much all the level 1 hideout stuff. I’m one metal scissors away from having the gym built. My pmc is already at lvl 4, probably about 800xp away from five. I will admit, this is probably as far as I’ll be able to level, without doing a pmc run. I’ve got every item needed for fetch quests between lvl 1-20.

    edit: need to mention this, my VM uses gpu pass-through with a rtx 3060 ti and utilizes a linux hypervisor and is contained inside of hyper-v making it harder to cheat and more secure as a result

      1st and most notable one and ones I say this you think to you self wow
      A old school lag switch to make you skip so you can freeze the game for a split second and get out the way or block a attack
      And most people will always cover it by saying ooo crappy server lag or the other players as a crappy internet connection
      No lag switch I bet I have just blown your mind
      2nd one is the use off cronos and other macro like devices so you can load up button combinations and have them mapped to a 1 button press
      Ie hold the cronos button and then say X and boom that 10 key string combo is input automatically

For example the Berthier rifle is 3 shot rifle but when you shot one bullet and you want reload you need to take two bullets out and put new clip with tree bullet again and is long and clucky process or British experiment to convert single shot rifle to repeating magazine feet rifle is interesting and exotic gun.

    Edit: based on the number of people commenting about how I probably haven’t been killed by cheaters but rather just good players I can firmly say that although most of my time in game was fine I can say with certainty that I’ve been killed by cheaters a few times. The reason I pointed out the amount of hours I’ve played wasn’t meant as a “ I have lots of hours in the game.” More so, that I quit less than 30 hours in because of the amount of times I’ve died to cheaters. Believe me, I have hundreds if not close to a thousand hours in other tactical/survival and fps shooters. Games that are similar and completely different to Tarkov like DayZ, The Cycle: Frontier, Valorant, CSGO and Apex. I don’t deny that Tarkov is a completely different to other games and has a big learning curve (which I love) but I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I’m being ignorant or jumping to conclusions by saying I’ve died multiple times to cheaters.
    I wasn’t dying to cheaters every other game or so often but I had a minimum of 10 runs or so of dying to people I could visually see “speed” hacking. I’m not ignorant to peoples tactics in this game as I’ve seen many streamers play it, which is what got me into the game in the first place.

      30 hours... lol that's not enough time to even get good at the smallest map. Also yes, I have times where I die 5 times in a row only 2 minutes into a raid. You can not be for sure that it is cheats until there is a replay system and even then....

      “I played less than 30 hours”
      “I had 10 raids where it happened”
      “I’m not ignorant”
      This game IS that much different. You were probably being ignorant.

      Bro, you did right, people just jump on defending cheaters online, it`s a loud minority, probably cheaters themselves trying to cover up by stating "there are good players", I even had a guy defending a cheater with actual footage and proof the guy was using aimbot... F anyone who defends cheaters.

      @L. Ron Hoyabembe ​ That's because speedhacks are instantly detectable. It involves sending information to the game which is clearly illegitimate, the sort that can only be caused by a bug or a cheat. If a player is moving faster than the maximum movement speed, that's the cause. Many games will outright kick players immediately for that, even if it is a bug, because it's easy. A player walling is just reading information from the game that is normally not shown to the player and showing it to them. A player aimbotting is just applying a control to his mouse either using the same technique, or a visual identification algorithm on the display out. The only way to catch these are to know what the software is, or to do something like a recent Valve banwave, and have information that will never be read by a legitimate client, which gets read by an illegitimate one, showing that is has been altered. Because at the end of the day, these people are playing the game "normally" just aiming faster. Hell, even infinite health is easier to fake. You just have to convince the client that you were a small distance away. The majority of cheaters are using hacks that are simple and hard to detect via client or server from the results, which is why anticheat software is needed in the first place.
      But speedhacking? That's just instantly telling the game that you're cheating. The game knows that you were last, alive, running, at position a, and then on next tick, position b, you were 40 metres away in the space of 1/60th of a second. It has all that data, because that's how it outputs it to everyone else. Banning speedhackers is trivial. It's so trivial that you can see it being done years ago, and some games would disconnect you if your latency was bad enough due to the large disconnect between where the game expected you to be and what your client was reporting.

    I watch a lot of Rust streamers and the situation in there is also pretty dismal. The worst thing is it's usually on a server-by-server basis so if the cheaters aren't playing on official servers their account doesn't get banned.

    I run a small tight-knit gaming community that always focused on playing CSGO, and with the ease of cheating in the game we always had a very strict no cheating rule.
    If you were caught cheating (and when suspicious we would review the games we played with them), we would ban you from the server, regardless of how nice you were as a person. The shame and being shunned socially really affected these people and after a year or two we would allow a second chance with scrutiny. This system, similar to the LAN party suggestion works well on a personal scale.

    I remember all the meme's from Tarkov mocking CoD's cheating situation. lol. I told them that it doesn't matter WHICH game it is or which DEV, that if the game was famous enough, cheaters will break it. lol. I think we need more of these fake bait cheats that not only mess with cheaters "hacks" but also fuck up cheaters computers.

    I'm greatly interested in seeing them combat cheaters but I also worry about game devs using this as an opportunity to ban a lot of innocents in the crossfire.
    And worse, this has an incentive for them to do so as often people will return by purchasing the game again. (Which means more money for the game company)
    I seriously worry this might turn into a nightmare. And BSG is too focused on small time RMT traders, they've already banned a few people for just merely sharing accounts I know about. One of my buddies shared his account with a good friend of his in another country and just a few days later his account gets banned. If you go vacationing with a different PC too often you might get banned yourself.
    This is just one example of over-banning.
    IMO bans need to be *almost* entirely focused against cheaters who use walls or aim, everything else shouldn't be a priority. I personally think BSG is mostly targeting the low-tier RMT people for bans as a means of further profiting from banning people.
    The economic dynamics of bans are truly horrifying when you consider BSG may be simply banning people only after they've cheated for a while (long enough to have their fun for their money's worth) so they'll keep returning and buying the game again.

    Same. I haven't played after 5 raids this wipe. The sound, the memory leaks, the jitter, the net code, the cheaters make it not worth it right now.
    Post raid replay is the only thing that will save the game. This is easy to implement with a raid log and the offline engine already implemented in Tarkov.

      @Literally Human So many great memories! I once fried a video card at one. Back in the days when there weren't limiters on the video cards and I pushed it just a little too hard. By hard I mean when I switched to the higher resolution it ran about 3-4 frames over a minute or so and then poofed. Half-Life multi-player, just before CS was released.

    Luke nailed it. I felt a change around .12, never went back. I feel like the game was a victim of its own success in a way, and for sure has suffered severe scope creep as a project with the resources BSG has. At least it popularized a "new" genre. I support Goat and his idea to show how bad it really is currently.

    I was invited to Tarkov by some friends, they were openly, blatantly cheating, everyone else they were playing against were also cheating the same way, they had map hacks, which showed where everyone was, and watching it, I saw that every single player was looking directly at other players through walls, which I guess makes it fair, no one's cheating if everyone is, cause then it's equal again, but I just stopped playing, I had less than 20 hours in game, but that just killed my will to play, forever.

    Not quite the same, as there's no human players, but you can faff about with the game much more.

    My heart dropped when in G0ats video the cheater wiggles back. At that moment I knew Tarkov was in a bad place like it never has been. I've been playing since 2017 and it's never been this bad and noticeable it was blatant cheating.

    At old school PDX lans it was in the agreement you signed that if you cheated you could not sue when they threw you out and literally threw your PC out the door destroying it on the pavement. Dunno how legal it actually was but they got away with it for a while at least.

    It absolutely destroys the competitive spirit and should be treated as a number one priority.
    But honestly it's the kind of thing that you either take in stride or you just stop playing. Depends on the game and the man. I've had a lot of really good memories punking cheaters in my favorite games because no amount of aimbot can make you not a bot. But on the flip side of that same coin I've totally abandoned games I was passionate about because of rampant cheaters.
    If your passionate about something cheating hurts you so much more. The soul damage is increased perpetually by how invested you are in the the game and how much a cheater can take away by screwing you.

    I've also quit. Got to level 41 and I feel like I've got into a really bad situation whereby I think everyone is cheating when I get killed. Obviously that's not true, but it's just not good to be in this mindset and it's impossible to get out of it after Goats video to he honest.
