I took today off to make a four days weekend.

LoL, I did the same. +2 for you. +3 for me. Thanks to my job they scheduled me to work next weekend so they also gave me Tuesday off too. 1 down 4 to go.

@Cutter, I thought all employers that require you to join or pay Union dues also had an opt out? Where I work I can opt out and give the money to charity. Without getting into the whole Union debate I think they are a necessary evil for lack of better words. Just like an insurance policy if you will....

Ah, yeah. Just one of the many reasons I'm still baffled that our country has turning anti-union.

I followed it for about three years but that was years ago. They did originally switch to the Torque engine to improve from what they had. But that was a long long time ago. Since then they have been changing a lot about the way the game plays. And fine tuning it.

I've always planned on buy it since it sounds like a game I would love to play. I even wanted to pre-pay for it years ago to help fund the development. But Vince decided he didn't like that idea. Can't really blame him.

I'm very much looking forward to it. I plan on buy the LE if they still plan on doing one. It was to come with the extras and a digital download so that you can play the game while you wait for them to ship it to you. Hope that is still an option.

WoW, has hell frozen over? I didn't think this game would ever be released. Years ago they said when the demo was released the game would follow soon after.

Look BF3 Hacks Galore > Nope No Hacks or Cheaters Here

Not sure why I am wasting my time but here goes... one last time. We are not on dial up anymore and latency can't help you explain away all the hacks that are out there. So glad you supposedly never see them. You can wear blinders all you like it matters not to me. Oh, and your breakdown made me LMAO, thanks.

"I just got done playing a few hours of CS, some guys were incredibly hard to hit while others were easy. It's not because they were hackers, they were terrible. It's because they don't set their rates right, their pings appear normal but they skip all over the fucking place."

This sounds like a short parody of my parody does it not? Well that is what you called it, right. Hmmm, because they don't set their rates right? Do you mean they may be altering something to make themselves harder to hit but they are still just normal? I'm sorry to you they are terrible players? Which mean you are so much better? You just gave a classic example of a hack or cheat that is not detectable and you yourself even said they were possibly doing it but that doesn't make them hackers? Hackers are cheaters, cheaters are hackers. If you alter the rate at which your packets are being sent to the server so that it makes you hard to hit you are HACKING. If you altered the game in ANY way to give yourself an advantage over people playing the game normally you are HACKING. Some might call it glitching or exploiting but it's all the same to me... you are cheating. And I am not saying you are but again you seem to be going way beyond trying to prove to us that there aren't hacks that are hard to detect... yet, you just gave us an example of one. Thanks for painting yourself into a corner. I promise you I will not come back with a response since you clearly see things in a different light. Sooner or later those rose colored glasses will come off or break. Take it easy kid...

Ah, yeah! Why haven't they expanded on this franchise? I know they made money. I love the games but the robot mech suits kind of ruined it a bit.

For the record, games by that same company, using various generations of the Silent Storm Engine:

Silent Storm
Silent Storm: Sentinels
Hammer and Sickle
Nightwatch(available in the US)
Daywatch(not available in the US? I can't find it)

LoL, thanks for all the info. I own them all except Daywatch. I've seen the movies but didn't know there was a game also. I've played through S2 three times, S3 once, and never finished the other two.

If you just mean this is going on and on for far too long you're right, I just hate being misinterpreted]

This... and me2. You said it best. You obviously weren't there. And yes...

I unload clips onto people all the time and either hit nothing or even get hit indicators but do little to no damage on the kill cam... This happens to me in ALL online FPS. Whether it's lag, choke, ping, bullet registration, bugs, or you name it, I don't think those same players that are my targets or my targeters are hacking.

Yeah, I see it all the time too... but for a couple hours straight? Nope. You conveniently over looked parts of my statements (as you still do) but it's all good. Please, no more... you feel strongly there are few hacks out there. But I having played the game around two hundred hours. And I know you are wrong.

Lets just agree to disagree.

Me thinks you have a reading comprehension issue....

I never mention that he killed me quickly or that it was suspiciously quick. I never said I couldn't hit him as well as he hit me. Those are things you are interjecting into what I said. I said he was able to kill me even after I had shot him repeatedly and then he showed no damage to his health. And the only time I ever killed him was with his back to me. Yet his scores were in line with mine and everyone else near the top of the scoreboard. Not to mention you skip over all the other examples I gave, strange.

The game has hit detection or have you not played it? So when you hit somebody you see an indication of that. So if I can see I have repeatedly hit him and yet he kills me with no damage showing on his tag when the game shows me who killed me then that would be suspicious to anyone with common sense, would it not?

Also, me thinks... thou dost protest too much!

Fire the tools who thought that a modern remake of this classic game needed to be dumbed down and made into an RTS.

WTB a new Silent Storm (without robots.)

d'Oh! Meant to cancel this one from my Steam purchases. Wanted to pick it up on the cheap in a few months when I have the time to play it. I enjoyed the demo but think they should have tried to implement a lot more features than they settled for.

I got to say it... too many good games out and those of us who work full time and have family's just can't play them all. I've found myself buying less and less. Trick is to buy those that are most suited to you.

"We have implemented changes which will greatly improve the game experience and final release will live up to the highest expectations. We expect launch to be a big opportunity for Blizzard. More details will be announced in the coming weeks."


I had to lol. Sorry, I'm in the beta but the game isn't gripping enough to hold my attention. I do have OPADD. That is Older Peoples Attention Deficit Disorder for those of you who are not aware. But still the game is fun but not addictive. After playing the demo through twice I lost interest. I do need to go back and see what they have changed because it will effect my LE Pre-Order purchase, for sure.

As Paranoid put it: He has 60 ping, a normal score, and kills me quickly, quicker than others, therefore he must cheat.

Too funny you are complaining about other twisting your words and then you do the same?

Looks fun to me. I love TBS but also open to RTwP. I missed this yesterday and just got a chance to get the demo. Have the day off do to a last minute schedule change but I'm going out to shoot some real guns before I come home to shoot the virtual kind.

Looking forward to this one. Already bought it on Steam and hoping this demo doesn't make me regret that.

Wish Soldiers of Anarchy would have been better marketed. I would have like to play it from the look of it. Is it still available via download from someplace? I saw one copy on Amazon but haven't had a chance to search any further.

You have anecdotal evidence that there are lots of "subtle" cheaters and I have anecdotal evidence that there are not lots of "subtle" cheaters.

The only thing we can be sure of is blatant cheaters, ones who get caught and ones who do impossible things (normally constrained by speed, distance, etc). I have yet to see a blatant cheater (I know they exist) and if I'm just not noticing "subtle" cheaters then I guess it doesn't really bother me. Apparently their subtle cheats are not better than my vanilla client.

I think the main thing to consider and you said it yourself..."I haven't played too long (I think it's around 30hrs)". I've got more time playing since my account was wiped and three times that before it was wiped. Once you've play a hundred plus hours let's see what you think, aye?

I'm not even sure why any of us are shocked (well, most of us aren't) since the BF games have been bug infested and hack riddled since the very first. Not to mention DICE never seems to support them as much as they should...

Well, I'll admit its not beautifully phrased but its no joke... that guy was untouchable unless I hit him from behind. And I racked up plenty of kills against his team mates so I know I wasn't having a bad night or a lag issue.

If your playing on a server that has no hacks you're lucky. Of course you said you mostly play 64 player conquest maps which is pure pandemonium. It's total chaos in those games which makes it a bit harder to spot shady game play. I try to pick the best ping with a fair number of players. And stick to Ranked HardCore PB games.

I just played a couple hours with a sniper who was one shotting me from anywhere on the Karkand map with a Holo Scope. Not possible to do consistently like he was at those distances. That scope has limited range yet for him it was as if he had the x8 or x12 scope attached and he was killing me with one shot every time. That doesn't seem odd to you?

The thing about "spotting" cheaters is that the cheating has become much more subtle. The days of having a guy with a full-on aimbot are mostly gone - if only because they know they'll get banned fairly quickly. These days, it's mostly about assisted playing - assisted aiming, assisted spotting, etc. For example, having the ability to spot all enemies gives you a leg up, but it doesn't translate into something you can spot as cheating.

Exactly. Most hackers now are not retarded enough to run around sniping people while sprinting about the map... though I still see this on occasion. The majority of hacks I am seeing are in the realm of game assistance versus the old school instant winner hacks.

Almost ever day I play I see suspicious behavior. The most used hack I think are the location hacks.. guys who always know where you are. They come running at you every time as if they see you through the walls or terrain. And are always facing directly at you and shooting the instant they round the corner.

I played with some clan guys the other night, none were using recon so they had no sensors, they where on me within fifteen seconds of spawn every time even though I started camping after spawn to confirm they were wall hacking. There is no way to prove something like that but you would have to be stupid not to recognize it. Wall hacks have been the most popular types of cheats for more than a decade. And the only way to catch them is if the game has built in ability for the admin to see what the player sees. Otherwise the admin has to have the same hack running and sees the suspected player responding to things he can't possibly see unless he is using a hack to see player locations.

Last night this guy would kill me every time even if I had already shot him numerous times spending most of a clip on him. He rarely took any damage when I was hitting him. And the only time I ever killed him was when I caught him with his back to me. It was as if he was hosting the server if you know what I mean. He had a clear latency advantage though his ping was between high thirties to low sixties. Also you have to take into account that if it was skill then why were his scores in line with everyone else? If he was that good his scores should have reflected that but I played with him for hours and his scores never stood out he was just near the top ever time. If you are out gunned by somebody good that is one thing but just being out gunned ever single time even when you had the guy dead to rights that is something else. What else is there besides lag? Hacks of course. I wasn't having any problems killing others since my kill to death ratio was normal about two to one sometimes better sometimes worse. I tend to do worse while defending com stations for example.

Still anything DICE can do is better than nothing. Crazy thing... I still can't believe with all the brilliant hackers out there why none have out done Even Balance and their shitty PunkBuster crap. Oh, well... until then we just have to live with all the morons cheating or stop playing these games.

EDIT:Most hackers now are not retarded enough to run around sniping people while sprinting about the map... though I still see this on occasion. What I meant by this was the hack they have for BBC2 where the player can run around and single shot kill you while sprinting with a sniper rifle. Something that may be possible on occasion but not going to happen ever single time he pulls the trigger. That same guy was shooting everyone on the map from his spawn killing us all instantly within seconds of being spawned.
