Sooo... every other MP game can get anti-cheat right but with the BF series we're supposed to "look for admins" because....? It's not a good enough game for that. Overlooking that massive, massive flaw and all the others is just too much for what is supposed to be a AAA game.

Every other MP game has anti-cheating done correctly? Are you serious? There are cheaters in EVERY game; the more popular the game, the more cheaters. It's an annoying aspect of online gaming that probably isn't going anywhere anytime soon. I could see the argument that client side hit detection makes cheating easier, but even if it was server side, there would still be cheaters. Look at CS and CS:S, Day of Defeat, Quake 1-3, you name it.

Punkbuster, as maligned as it is, bans thousands of people a month on average. Those that don't cheat egregiously are still pretty easy to spot, in my opinion, and there are enough BF3 servers (and eventually BF4) that you can just move to another game, if you can't just overcome them, which is usually doable anyway.

Don't get me wrong, cheat detection could be better, and ban waves could definitely happen more often, but what are you going to do, never play online games again because a cheater might join a server?
