    • Amen!  I can't divulge any details, but it's impressive watching the GM's work! And as BLKHWK8 said, every report is looked into.
    • I'm satisfied the GM's have dealt with this. Thanks everyone.
    • Yes, he's cheating. The question is what to do about it. This game has nothing whatsoever like Punkbuster or other anti-cheating software, and to my knowledge there's nothing under the hood that would let the Rats automatically detect this kind of crap. Right now, the only detection method we have (and have ever had) is decent folks like goreblimey stepping up and pointing out this BS. In the past, this has largely been okay (given the rarity of cheating), but cheating software is prolific and arguably easier than ever to come by these days. In the meantime, the only possible solution I see in this particular case is to permanently ban and hope he doesn't simply create another F2P account. @goreblimey please keep us updated on this. If the Rats do nothing about this, I want to know. If the people in control now really love this game, then I'd like to see zero tolerance for this crap.
    • This is concerning. 4 kills a minute with a rifle @ 300m? Something does not seem right here. I know the players killed are good players so I’m pretty sure they were not just running in the open asking to be killed.  I ran across a similar situation last campaign, and one player basically killed our attack. The player was .reported and was banned. However it still stopped the attack, and several squadmates logged due to frustration.  A quick google search for ww2ol cheats will show sites that offer cheat programs. I’m sure CRS is also aware of them as well. I just wish when a player is .reported numerous times in a short period swifter action would be taken to at least suspend their activity until it can be determined if they are cheating on not.
    • @major0noob Yeah i guess i am. I mean, i dont think it would be that hard to come up with a set of very generous parameters that when tripped with a high percentage would take punative action. It shouldnt be super aggressive. I dont know the percent of time that a gm is online in game. However i assume they have lives so i would bet it is less than 50% of the time. And, their time is valuable. Why waste it with obvious crap like this.
    • So was the problem no GM online? Or something else? @choad , you suggesting a kick bot? The guys with boots already do most of that, they're even more sensitive and can recognize exploitative/bugged/cheating behavior and act appropriately. Its like HC though, When they're not on the jobs not done...
    • I'd look into becoming a gm but honestly i dont think they would accept my application I read something along the lines that a GM should consist of player "having exhibited the correct temperament". I am quite sure my record on the forums and private correspondence with CRS doesn't always rise to that level. Anyways. It is not my intent to disparage the volunteer team. My whole point was the GM team is volunteer based and has limited capacity and that is precisely why they need to leverage technology to assist them.
