For example, if you see some player standing on a hill in PUBG, picking off 5+ other players one by one all around them, then you know they are hacking, because every other person wouldnt be able to spot all the people around them and would very quickly be picked off themselves because of that and thus they wouldnt even dare exposing themselves like that.

But this is exactly how Fugglet and Shroud play. Would you ban them for being too good?
https://www.youtube.com/user/Fugglettv

Like he will climb to the top of a hill, jump up and down to draw shots, and then, assuming he has the Kar or a sniper rifle from a drop, headshot the responders one by one.
Of course there can be situations where there are simply really bad players around them. But that would be rather rare, because especially in a game like that everyone instantly looks in the direction of a gun shot and goes for it.

Accusations of cheating against the named players are nothing new. On Youtube there are quite a few fishy videos of them doing stuff like that. Maybe we will see them in one of those "Top 5 Streamers exposed as cheaters" video at some point.

Especially in the case of Shroud its very fishy. He doesnt have a very consistent gamestyle. But sometimes its like a switch he flips and suddenly he is god.

But his headshot % isn't above 25%. It is easy to locate cheaters vs watching their streams and videos. Most of their talent is mouse precision and tactical.

You'll watch the Death Cam and see them firing into the ground over and over again, since many of the cheats circumvent line-of-sight mechanics

That is actually a bug with the death cam as well as the spectate cam. When they are near something, the gun glitches into the ground - that is not a cheat.

News Comments > PUBG China Cheating Backlash Heats Up

There was a cool video that described the lag problem in PUBG. Basiclly said the client/server relationship gets better after about halfway through the game as the server doesn't need as much data to keep track of.

Makes sense, I can rarely kill people early on if I drop with a bunch of people, my shots don't hit and I die around corners.

My typical strategy is to land where there are just a couple or no people, loot up, then after 1st or 2nd circle only about 40 people left, and shots connect. I win a fair amount.

/they banned a swath of cheaters, they are already back. I recognize variants of names in the top 10. HS% > 70%!

@jdreyer get DSFix. Game is unbearable without it. It gets much better with this fix, actually some parts are even beautiful, and it's quite enjoyable and not as difficult as people make it to be (it's about learning attack patterns and move in consequence.. apart from one boss in a cramped area, they offer fair fights). Going to the end is really nice, and the DLC expansion while a bit more hardcore on the fights (one boss leaves almost no margin for reaction times) is also enjoyable. This game has deserves its reputation.

The Steam Forums for the game have all the required info. They are doing a good job of keeping the game playable for people.

The Countries Working The Most Hours Every Year.

Article threw me off, as almost every country works less than 2080 hours (the equivalent to a full time worker for 1 year) - but they must take into account all jobs? PT, etc etc etc. But it makes it sound like full time people. Noted at the bottom "Average annual hours worked per worker in 2015" with no details.

I average about 2,300 a year with overtime, training, court, meetings, etc.

Engineer Mark Rober exposes cheating arcade machine.

Per several discussions on crates in games, wouldn't this finding make these games illegal for minors to play?

Sand Master - why you want the right tool for the job.

Cool, but how long does it take to prep the skid?

Hope everyone had a good new year. I went to bed at 6pm. Got up at 7am! Was amazing.

Now a full day of demo of a bathroom in the basement. Maybe a couple extra walls as well......

(stand up shower is 3 walls of cement and metal mesh. HUGE SUCK!)

LOL. I love you armchair detectives. You have no idea how the real world or tactical situations work.

i mean, like i said in yesterday's article, it's the cop's job to risk their lives to protect their citizenry. yes, even from themselves. it should be their standard operating procedure to assume a suspect is innocent until there is incontrovertible proof he's a danger.

yes it will lead to more cop deaths.

but if more cop deaths leads to a corresponding drop in innocent people being murdered in their own homes by the police, i am perfectly ok with that. i know personally, if i was a swat officer, i wouldn't shoot until i actually saw a gun. would that be too late? likely, but at least i didn't kill someone i was supposed to be protecting in his own home. the death of police is an inevitability of the job. the death of innocent people by law enforcement should not be.

This. If a cop is ready to kill, he needs to be ready to die. And paid accordingly. In many places, they're paid far more than soldiers. Around here, six figures with pensions.

I think anyone stating a human should die because of their job is a puke.

Or park down the street, point a shotgun mic at the house wall from 100' away, then call them. Listen to what's going on inside the house before, during, and after the call.

Illegal.
But it's legal to shoot an unarmed, innocent man who is pulling up their pants.

It's OK for a cop to break the law if they decide it might help them avoid breaking a more important law?

What's needed for that sort of surveillance? Is there a warrant, and if so how quickly can one be got?

No. The US Supreme Court has ruled surveillance that penetrates houses is not legal. ie: Thermal imagers, sound, etc. It violates people's right to privacy.

Seriously I wonder if you guys are right.... if the companies put an end to items that you could sell for real cash, would that cut down on the foreign hackers farming for crap constantly ?...or is their always going to be some kind of workaround to sell?
Like high level gear on a character w/ great weapons - they sell the entire account then or what ?

I don't have the answers. I'd just like somebody to figure it all out and implement it.

Remove money related items, and 99.9% of cheaters move on. They will farm something else.

where you have to click like 5 times to pick up an object or open a door.
Isnt different on the PC. I regularly got extremely mad because it didnt close a door even though I hit the key several times, or when picking up things...
Delays drive me nuts in a game, and this one is extremely bad.



If you are clicking things to pick them up, you are doing it wrong. TAB drag loot.

Rubberbanding ruins games. They better figure that shit out quick.
u gotta make sure u pick us servers...mine was set to asian and didnt realize it till i happened to look down and see it....gameplay was much better afterwards ...though not perfect

Yup same. I apparently played 6 games on AS servers before I realized it. Even after moving it, I have to make sure it is NA, as every restart of the program it goes back to AS? odd.

Haven't played since the 1GB update yesterday? Been busy around the house with projects. Hope it helps. I have been killed more recently by hackers in about 50% of the games I play. Watching replays makes it so obvious, they aren't even trying to hide the fact they are cheating.

I made some posts and I do see a few were removed from the top 10. When the headshot % is 60%+ I don't understand how that escapes their checks and balances.

/edit: Played 4 games. Not noticing any cheaters, but didn't watch full replays or pay much attention to kill feed. My deaths were all legit.
