DICE introduces new anti-cheating measures for Battlefield 3

Thursday, 12th January 2012 14:10 GMT By Johnny Cullen

DICE has new measures to make it easier for cheaters to be banned from Battlefield 3, the developer has said. You can now rat-out the less-than-honest through Battlelog, by visiting the profile pages of offenders, clicking on a yellow triangle then describing in detail how they cheated. The introduction of the new measures follows a recent wave of stat resets and player bannings.

There’s more details on the Battlefield Blog. Thanks, Shack.

    If it’s like the last time I checked the top 10 high ranked players, pick 5 at random and they’ll most likely have cheated XD

    I’ve never (knowingly) seen a cheater in BF3, but the Battlelog forums is full of horror stories (although you can probably regard a decent percentage of these as fantasy).

    Cheaters have dead-giveaways in their stats though, things like ridiculous SPM coupled with ridiculous k/d’s (but usually underwhelming w/l) and usually stupidly high accuracy with weapons it’s difficult to muster high accuracy with (cheaters tend to favour LMG’s and have like 90% accuracy with them). It makes you wonder why they don’t have an algorithm that seeks these people out, monitors them and bans them.

    Right now I just checked the PC SPM leaderboard, there are guys with several thousand SPM (top is 9843 spm, 87.208 k/d, 95.3% accuracy [additionally that's mostly with sniper rifles and his best headshot is only 78m], and yup, w/l is an underwhelming 1.6). And the whole top end of the leaderboard is full of similar stories. It should not be hard to ban all these wangs.

    Fucking finally!

    Hopefully this will have a decisive effect, since Punkbuster predictably hasn’t done very much to stop cheaters.

    Now all that’s left is the final balancing and BF3 will be a true gem.

    @2 Honestly, I haven’t been able to play a two hour session without having at least one match ruined by a guy performing “unnatural” feats within the game.

    When someone is standing on the other side of a map, headshotting people with 3 second intervals using an M249, the explanations for that are pretty limited.

    I’m not one of those guys that can’t stand to lose to better players, I commend them on getting me, and I’ve also been accused of cheating many times in Battlefield and CoD myself, so I’m really not inclined to cry wolf just because the game doesn’t go my way. Sometimes it’s just too obvious.
