First day experience
I just played 4 hours straight. I don't believe media hype, and I'm a huge dayz fan, so the game sat well with me.

I tried at least a dozen different servers. The most reoccuring message is either:

aimbot Fairfight "playernamehere". Or: fairfight banned "playername here".

In one server i was there for 20 mins, you couldn't see anything else in chat but red ban messages :D

The there was this person called megan frost, i heard here name reported on at least 5 different servers. really comical, until you realize the game has a real money store.

The last situation that made me disconnect and call it gg:

Night time on the server, someone says in chat "aimbotter near smallville all report". I look at my map, see im in smallvile, bam im dead, while prone in the grass on a hill at nightime.

And to think some poeple spend real money to respawn :D.

its a 3 euro game with really bad cheat protection, and a user base full of cheaters. And this isn't an exagerration. I took screenshots of the game. and i do not have a single screenshot where there isn;t a cheat related automated message caught on it.

too bad, since it is a dayz alternative without frame rate problems. Its just ridiculous how many cheaters there are, being banned and being reported. It simply ruins the game. you can't have 1 hour perma death delay and sooo many cheaters. Just doesn't work.

You could create some other characters, I play with 3 but only 2 of them are getting much time in the game..

Fairfight bans people who are careless when hacking. Any person who doesn't rage hack isnt banned.

Didn't happened to get killed by a hacker, but yes, I can't read damn on chat because of banned messages...

all games have cheaters.

this game has both punkbuster and fairfight and the work together to catch, kick them and keep them out.

and since punk buster was added its as good of a cheat protection system as any other game who has pb and ff has...

basically the same thing ea uses for battlefield 3

so enjoy the game, dont worry about them, u actually wont be seeing many...

You DO realise you're contradicting yourself right?

In DOZENS of other threads you have stated, numerous times I might add, that there are NO hackers because YOU haven't run into them.

I haven't run into any but the more information I gathered on the supposed problem I learned that Punkbuster and FairFight are updated to fight hackers because they update thier means of employing hacks. It was so much simpler in my youth - Hackers would just copy a floppy and sell it to you as a back-up to game you were already supposed to own (complete with hacks to get past the verification codes).

"Supposed" problem?

There ARE hackers here. This isn't a "supposed" problem. People are running into hackers everyday now and the only reason people like you don't run into them is because you play on a locked private server.

It's a pathetic excuse to say the least and I grow tired of seeing it

I did not believe there were hackers in the game becasue I had not run into any that I am aware of however I did learn that these two services had to update thier hacker defense on a regular basis to keep up with the hackers because hackers were finding ways around the defense.

Don't get me wrong on this one.

No offense or anything mate. But you don't need to learn that there are hackers in this game. It's a universal FACT and complete common sense that there is.

Why? Because there are hackers in EVERY game. Period.

if it was only the banned messages, I would not be that dissapointed. but its more the messages where poeple report cheaters. if you have to manually type a command to report someone aimbotting, that is pretty horrid. these are not cases of i think hes aimbotting. you litterally get sniped during night time while prone in grass.

im not here to bash the game. the game itself is fun. but I can't believe they offer an option to pay for ressurection, when there are so many cheaters. I've never seen that many cheaters in any game, no exaggeration. Not to mention that aimbotting in a perma death game is 100 times more serious.

Despite enjoying the game, I can't see myself playing when aimbot is the most common word in chat, be it automatic message, be it player chat. dayz, eith its arma 2 engine tha is full of security holes, never had anything no where near this level of cheating during my 200ish hours of playtime.

I will look into private pvp enabled servers if theres no extra costs involved, otherwise ill move on to a different game. The thread is really just a warning to future byers, that even if you look past the media bashing, the game has a serious problem with cheating.

I have heard people claim aimbot when that wasn't the case at all. I'm not saying they are not out there but I am saying there are a lot of false accusations also.

Everything you've previously said indicates that you believe they don't exist at all.

Yes there are false bans. But those numbers aren't as large as ACTUAL bans.

I have said that I did not (didn't) believe if them but the reason that they keep updateing punkbuster and fairfight is because they are finding way to get in. Maybe I didn't say it plainly enough but you got me wrong. I didn't believe in them, I have never run into them but I do believe they get for a while until the updates ban them and then it happens again with the next Steam sale.

The more protection these companies put up the harder the hackers will work to find a way to get past that protection and they will always find a way in eventualy and then you have that problem. When the updates come they are banned and it starts all over again.

I think most hackers must be on the larger population servers because I play on small servers.

No do you understand what I am saying?

I'M SAYING THAT HACKERS ARE IN THE GAME!
