"Hopefully the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best."
While the 360 version is still in the works, 'Titanfall' is out for the Xbox One and the PC. By all accounts, the game is a multiplayer blast that brings a new dimension or two to the shooter genre. Naturally, the game has a huge community. That community has been frustrated over the past day with server issues, but of much bigger concern has been the many instances of cheaters in the PC version.
Today, Respawn has announced that their anticheat solution is in effect. "Titanfall uses FairFight to detect cheaters on PC. Since the launch of Titanfall, we've been collecting data on people who are cheating on PC but not immediately enforcing bans. As of Friday, March 21st, that has changed and we have started banning cheaters in Titanfall."
Those who have been banned will see "FairFight: Cheat detected" when in the lobby.
Now Respawn is being courteous. Those who are banned can still play 'Titanfall,' but they will only be able to play with other banned players.
"Q.) So what happens if I get banned?"
"A.) Great news: you get to keep playing Titanfall! Less-great news: you only get 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."
What's also interesting is that there is taint to trying to play with a banned player. Having a banned player in your party will get the user banned for that play session. "If you are a non-cheater and you invite a cheater friend into a party, you will be stuck playing against cheaters. If you stop inviting your cheater friend, you will once again get to play with the non-cheater population. You do not get permanently tainted just by playing with a cheater - you are only banned for cheating if you are actually cheating."
Banned players can contact [email protected] in order to plead their case.
