well before if you submited a ticket with video they got a 3 day ban so im guessing you can still do it that way. dunno im on console so i dont have to worry about hackers just the glitchers. which are almost as bad.

This will be an ongoing battle for PC users, but I'm glad to see they've stepped it up to permanent bans. Interesting to read that there needs to be documentation and specific processes for legal reasons. I was always under the impression the EULA and TOS allowed companies to institute whatever policies they saw fit for their games.

The issue is between Ubisoft and Massive. Massive apparently didn't have direct access to User emails through the Uplay client. Ubi manages the distro platform separately from Massive. So they have to work out a process/system to be able to alert users to account actions and that requires Massive being able to get user emails directly from the Uplay client. Something that apparently wasn't setup prior to launch. This is an internal Uplay/Ubisoft policy that Massive has to abide by from my understanding.

I have submitted several reports for hacking, and every time they have responded with some form of "we need video evidence".  So essentially, to ban hackers you either have to be A) permanently recording or B) killed or witness it once, turn on recording, and then hope to find them hacking again.  This is essentially no change in the policy, which has been, functionally: no one gets banned ever.

Furthermore, many of the new hacks cannot even be captured on video.  If they aren't teleporting, shooting through walls, or using RoF hacks it isn't observable.  Players now have the ability to choose whatever talents they want on their weapons and even activate double 4-set bonuses for the gear sets.  Video evidence captures neither.  Nor does it capture aim botting, the no-recoil hack, or incremental RoF bumps.  It rarely captures players who bot to teleport to all the division tech chests, loot, and leave unless you happen to be there and see them disappear--which could also just be an instance transfer (like when someone joins the party and the instance is full), which is visually indiscernible. 

Until there is some form of guardian/warden detection system in place on the developer side, players will continue to abuse the fact that so much of what happens online doesn't originate from the server.  There was one during beta.  What the hell happened to it?

ban waves incomming

 

First, we have implemented new cheat detection methods that have allowed us to identify many more players currently using cheat engines in the game. We have already caught more cheaters in the last few days than we had in total during the previous weeks. As a result, we will be handing out the biggest wave of suspensions and bans to date over the course of the next few days.
