Battlefield 3 Cheat Reporting Improved

3BF3Blog has word that DICE has improved the functionality of the "Report" button on Battlelog that can be used to snitch on Battlefield 3 players who cheat, or, you know, kill you too often. They say: "DICE has improved the “Report” player functionality, which now lets users report cheaters and stats padders, and lets them submit links to Battle reports, select the soldier that’s suspected of cheating. DICE promises that reported cheaters will be manually checked by the anti-cheat team at DICE. Hopefully the system will work better this time."

Last time we had a post about BF3 cheating, I claimed that I never saw a cheater, and it's still the case. I've even started being called a cheater sometimes, and I'm not even that good. I admit that I did sometimes get my ass kicked in strange fashion, but I just couldn't claim it was a hacker. The moral of the story is that it in no way breaks the game for me.

As for PS2, I'm definitely interested, but I don't see both games competing. PS2 looks like space fantasy stuff, and it doesn't look as robust as BF3. It looks more mmo-like. But, I haven't played it, so...

One of the things that turned me off Battlefield games (BF2 was the last one I tried to get into) is that although it sort of felt like a battle in a war it was still basically a 'match' that had a clearly defined start, an ending and although the maps and player numbers were much larger than any other FPS they were still basically following a variation of team deathmatch gameplay. It was still basically a shooter and there were better ones around at the time. (IMO)

PS2 (and PS1 I guess) takes this a huge step further. There are literally thousands of players online in a persistent world fighting battles on a number of ever changing front lines. (Sometimes even behind enemy lines, although that is inadvisable :)) Yes its an MMO but first and foremost its a FPS, the immersion and feel of being in a battle that actually matters is unmatched in my experience.

I think they will compete for this very reason, people who are tired of the typical shooter formula but still like the FPS genre will find a lot to like about PS2 and will try it. Battlefield purists will probably dislike it for the very same reasons.
