View Full Version : Update on Cheating

29th Apr 2014, 00:04
Just wanted to brief you guys since I've seen more and more concerns about the cheating situation.

Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC) has been enabled. However, VAC does not ban people instantly so it may take a little time for Valve's system to identify and lock out offenders.
We're implementing additional server-side validation that should curb some of the speed-hacking cheats we've seen.
Player reporting tools are in the works to allow you to report suspected cheaters or bad people in general. For now we are relying on community reporting and metrics investigation.

We take this issue very seriously and are working daily with Square-Enix and Valve to make life very difficult for these people using third party tools to gain an unfair advantage. We appreciate your patience while we sort things out.

Great to see the player reporting being implemented! I haven't seen any of the cheaters myself but I've heard about them, I'm glad there are steps being taken to ban them.
