  1. Current EA/DICE Info

    Was just on a server and saw the automated FairFight ban message. This time is said "FairFight Has Issued 6217 Bans in 24 Hours". Really? According to BF1stats.com, in the last 24 hours there was a peak of around 26,500 PC players. Which means, if the FairFight ban message is ACTUALLY true, it would indicate that around 23%-24% of the PC players out there are cheating? Hmmmmm. Maybe it's not that far-fetched to think so.
  2. Rage quit ? You bet !

    I think there must be better quality of players in the evening. You never play like this when I am on your team. LOL
  3. Microsoft started rolling out the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to PCs earlier this week, complete with features like Windows Mixed Reality and people integration for the taskbar. While most of the new additions are obvious, Microsoft quietly added an anti-cheat feature for games. The software giant first revealed the feature in a Windows 10 Insider build back in July, promising to share more information. VG247 reports that Microsoft is now documenting its new “TruePlay” anti-cheat feature, and it’s designed for game developers to combat activity like aimbots or wallhacks. LIMITED TO UWP GAMES FOR NOW It appears to be similar to Valve’s own ant-cheating software (VAC), and the system collects data within games and generates alerts when there’s something out of the ordinary. Developers will receive the information if TruePlay determines there’s something particularly nefarious going on. TruePlay is disabled by default at the moment in the gaming settings for Windows 10, but Microsoft is starting to make the API available to developers. Developers will be able to use TruePlay in their Microsoft Store games, so this is limited to Universal Windows Platform (UWP) games for now. There aren’t many of those in the Microsoft Store just yet outside of Forza, Cuphead, and other Microsoft Studios games, but Microsoft has been trying to tempt developers to adopt its Xbox Play Anywhere system to offer the same game across Xbox One and Windows 10. This might be a useful feature in the future, but as it’s limited to UWP it doesn’t really address the games that people are actually cheating in today. https://www.theverge.com/2017/10/19/16503452/microsoft-windows-10-fall-creators-update-trueplay-anti-cheat-gaming
  4. Do Not Pre-Order SWBF2

    they are. DICE version on PC is down 60% in pre order sales. In another section I have more details. Basically, Disney is about to pull the Star Wars Franchise from EA. Shit is hitting the fan at EA and DICE has been given a warning.

    EA has shut down Visceral Games, the studio behind games like Battlefield Hardline and Dead Space, the publisher said today. The Star Wars game in development at Visceral will be revamped and move to a different studio.

    OK, it has gotten real. Shit is hitting the fan as we speak. EA has shut down Visceral Games, the studio behind games like Battlefield Hardline and Dead Space, the publisher said today. The Star Wars game in development at Visceral will be revamped and move to a different studio. “Our Visceral studio has been developing an action-adventure title set in the Star Wars universe,” EA’s Patrick Söderlund said. “In its current form, it was shaping up to be a story-based, linear adventure game. Throughout the development process, we have been testing the game concept with players, listening to the feedback about what and how they want to play, and closely tracking fundamental shifts in the marketplace. It has become clear that to deliver an experience that players will want to come back to and enjoy for a long time to come, we needed to pivot the design. We will maintain the stunning visuals, authenticity in the Star Wars universe, and focus on bringing a Star Wars story to life. Importantly, we are shifting the game to be a broader experience that allows for more variety and player agency, leaning into the capabilities of our Frostbite engine and reimagining central elements of the game to give players a Star Wars adventure of greater depth and breadth to explore.” https://kotaku.com/ea-shuts-down-visceral-games-1819623990
  7. October patch noted

    It should also be mentioned that a huge website for cheaters was visited by dice and now most cheats are not working at this time. Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S7 using Tapatalk

    Yes RSp still has a long road to go before it is good. Why they allowed RSP to be put on the back burner is anyone's guess. I guess is DICE deliberately wants RSP to fail.

    Well according to the focus group, that is what will happen. No 3 day suspensions any more. That is the whole problem with Fairfight. It has no teeth. Its great at doing it's job of catching cheaters but EA/DICE hold the hammer on bans and they have refused to perma ban anyone fearing it would hurt their sales. Anyways, once the 5v5 incursion launches, expect the new system to get put into place a few months after that in BF1.

    I was think bfu sounded a lot like battlefield black ops 1 & 2. I will really laugh if Disney pulls star wars from ea. Dice has over 50 job openings. I wonder why?

    In BF 2018 rumor news: Sources close to Dice and EA state that there is a new Battlefield project underway called “Battlefield Unthinkable”. It is unclear if this will be the final name of the project but for now I will refer to it as “BFU”. BFU is supposedly set in an alternate version of the 1960s where the cuban missile crisis escalates into nuclear war between the united states and the soviet union. From there players find themselves in a world war III set in the 1960s/70s using vietnam style equipment across the globe. Two missions that have been described are set in cuba during the united states invasion and west berlin during a soviet offensive. Campaign moves away from “war stories” and focuses on a group of soldiers rather than an individual during three distinct campaigns. One multiplayer map has been described as havana during the 1960s and it is codenamed “havana_day”. Operations are also rumored to be returning on a bigger scale with branching storylines for each operation. 64vs64 will also become available for PC players- no details on console users. Overall the game has a very “fallout vibe” when it comes to the setting, like america during the 1950s/60s. You will be fighting on the american homefront as well which will be the first battlefield game to feature this since hardline. This is not from any of my sources and sounds like black ops to me but hey we shall see "SOON".

    Apparently EA is seeing DLC sales numbers, and end users plummet since the 3 rd month of BF1 launch. Preorders for their new star wars game is down 60% on pc.. Someone at disney told EA they would be losing the star wars i.p for good if sales of the new battle front 2 game were worse than the first game. EA has been shitting their pants for the last 9 months because they never planned on dealing with pc public hacks beyond what FF was already doing.. The source inside EA claims 5 ex hackers were employed for the last 9 months to rectify the problem, since sales have slumped so badly on dlc's. This came from an unknown source DICE employee My advice to you guys, is not to piss around with public hacks at all, and if you don't know how to get around a rootkit client side scanner beyond November 17 2017 (SWBF2 Release), don't run any hacks at all unless you want an instant ban. EA focus groups found that perma banned players would 90% of the time re-buy the game and play it legit.. With only 10% not re-buying their product. IT might be put in to other EA games sometime later this month as a trial run.. This is good news for us. That was from the well to do hack group. EA is getting real worried.
