PS2 full of hacking. SOE takes down leaderboards to cover it up!

    I"ve been playing since beta and am an avid FPS player, and have been for years. Mutliple years CAL-IM experience in CS and am pretty savvy at knowing when I've been had. Quite honestly, I've pulled off some ridiculous shots with a T9-CARV and the M77 that I have no doub that people would assume I've cheated. I've never cheated in any game. I'm a slightly above average FPS player due mostly to experience with the genre and a decently steady hand and understanding of the game mechanics.

    That being said, I don't feel like I"ve ever been in a situation where I've been botted quite honestly. Alot of full sprays, some random headshots from snipers, but in all, nothing that I can say the game is broken. If there are aimbots, then they're very few and far between, and if you're talking wall hacks, that's a different story. Good aim and play will even out the wallhack. Seeing people doesn't mean killing people. 

    Yes, I'd prefer no hacks obviously, but in its' current state the game is far from broken or unplayable, and I don't discount some form of hacking, seems that there is ample proof. You'd be surprised what people think is cheating ending up being superior gameplay in alot of accounts, or at the very least, lucky gameplay, especially in the mass chaos of PS2 battles. 

    Aimbots are distinct. Advanced aimbots will pepper a body shot here and there to throw off the count, but there's no missing a full on aimbot. Headshot after headshot, clearing a path wherever they go. I haven't seen much of either. I currently hold a 1.5 K:D ratio, which I find acceptable given the mass amounts of people and the futile base defenses at times. 

    In closing, I think the problem is severely overstated. There may be some validity to the claim that there are dirty players, but by and large if 75% of the playerbase is hacking, then they clearly are pretty bad at it.

    Encountered a two people using aimbots tonight.  They were able to take and hold bases without a problem.    We had upwards of 25 people and we could not take them.   I just gave up for tonight.    They were reported, but I doubt that anything will happen.    Oh well.    Back to playing Skyrim.  ^_^

    So I can't help but laugh at all this. Suit yourselves :).

    Should they be permabanned when caught?

    of course you should be permabanned if your caught cheating, it just shows how pathetic these people are. I mean really you got to cheat at a freaking video game, just shows how much a coward they are in real life.

    Nothing new to me,  was no different than how it was with the first planetside


    Reporting does work, and they are gathering data on those who cheat- all the script kiddies are doing is giving them what they want while they themselves can careless if they get caught or not.


    While i understand many are upset that SOE is not working fast enough to get rid of the hackers,  since while many DO get banned, many more just take their place via alts and so on.

    Its really up to the community to really be proactive in not only continuing to report cheaters, but also exclude them away from joining any outfits.


    cant say i wont be going anywhere, maybe soul calibur V, but thats it.   im sticking with PS2 for the long haul.

    I'd love SOE to give us all a Christmas present and ban the hacks, including my friends who I don't play PS2 with because the game is just boring when hackers are using ESP to scout the enemy. The only good part was that he could see others using ESP to track him through walls and hills, I've been told by aimboters that they estimate there's about 75% of the players using the aimbot.


    [mod edit]


    I'm still playing but alot less than before since playing against cheaters ain't much fun,





    The leaderboards were broken and weren't showing accurate K/D, that's why they took them down.

    Even if they are aimboting that is quite an un-trustworthly statement that you've put out, because in Planetside 2 there are tanks and air, both of which can easy flushed out those 2 stragglers and they won't be able to do a thing. 1 guy in your squad with MAX armor would probably ben enough to tank their damage and finish them off.


    It is simply not possible. I've never seen 2 people ever held out 2 squads (around 20 something men).


    You must be thinking of some other games, like APB, lol.

    If anyone is letting hacking stop them from playing... they are just being silly, stubborn, or ignorant.


    I've played this game a LOT over the first 3 weeks... run into 3 instances of obvious cheating - 2 in one morning...  It's a fantastic game - a possible GotY and certainly a leading contender for best MMO-type game of 2012.


    If you haven't tried PS2, you're just missing out.

    All mmos have cheating scumbags even pve orientated tab Target ones.

    Look at all the teleport into dungeon & boss farm on a hunter hacks in wow.
  • ShakyMoShakyMo BradfordPosts: 7,207Member Common
    Also 75% Is bullshit, but is exactly the sort of thing "a friend" says to self justify their cheating. Hopefully "a friend" will be ip blocked soon.

    Well this makes sense. Also explains why yesterday I kept getting killed by the same guy. Instantly after exiting a safe area, bullets flew my direction. But to say a lot of it is going around, I wouldn't think so. Same time yesterday he was the only one that looked like suspected aimbot. No where to be seen, but always get killed by him.

    lold pretty good at this.. if you even mention the hacking problem in ps2 at PSU you'll get a ban


  • EnerzealEnerzeal WarringtonPosts: 326Member
    Guys seriously you need to stop this, you're just bad - I've got about a good week in so far, not seen a single hacker on my server, not one.
  • PurutzilPurutzil East Stroudsburg, PAPosts: 2,951Member Uncommon
    Kinda silly, specially since they basically made a response back about hackers, to the point one of the head haunchos in charge of the game basically said they will hunt down the hackers and their family, which btw was hilarious reading that.

    Ignoring the bickering and tolling, the OP does have a correct statement.  The leaderboards showed obvious hackers, and was down (but is now back up without those people)

    I think on mattherson there was a few obvious hackers, it wasnt like the first 50 or 100 top scores were obvious hackers, even the top 10 didnt have all hackers, just a few.


    These were the people with the 9000 to 1 kill death ratios.
