Titanfall Cheaters Must Play With Themselves

Or is that each other? Anyway, the Titanfall website announces Respawn's mech shooter's anti-cheating enforcement is now operational (thanks Gamasutra), and those flagged as cheaters are stuck playing with other cheaters "in something that will resemble the Wimbledon of aimbot contests." Here's how this will work:
Q.) So what happens if I get banned?
A.) Great news: you get to keep playing Titanfall! Less-great news: you only get to play with other cheaters. You can play with other banned players in something that will resemble the Wimbledon of aimbot contests. Hopefully the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best, or these all-cheater matches could be frustrating for you. Good luck.

Q.) If I’m banned, what happens if I make a party with my non-cheater friends?
A.) When anyone in your party is banned, then everyone in your party will be treated as banned for that play session. If you are a non-cheater and you invite a cheater friend into a party, you will be stuck playing against cheaters. If you stop inviting your cheater friend, you will once again get to play with the non-cheater population. You do not get permanently tainted just by playing with a cheater - you are only banned for cheating if you are actually cheating.

Q.) How do I get unbanned?
A.) You can contact anticheat@respawn.com if you think you've been banned unfairly.

How is this a good business decision? I thought gaming companies made tons of money banning accounts and getting people to buy new ones? Interesting. BTW FYI this post is Trolling Free.

I was going to ask the same thing. I dont think cheaters should be allowed to play the game in any fashion. This is cutting them some serious slack. Also while this sounds fun on paper, I have trouble believing that this system is 100% fullproof. There will be a lot of false positives and regular people will get stuck in these cheat servers.

So you would rather the false positives be banned from the game entirely? Confused!

Whats worse? Playing with cheaters or not playing at all? Id rate them about equal. With that said, when you are banning people you need to make damn sure you lower your false positives to an absolute minimum. Since this isnt really banning, its just 'flagging', and since this is EA we are talking about Im thinking there will be problems down the road with this system. A lot of poblems. No wait, strike that. A shitload of problems, if any of the other EA games are anything to go on...

And THAT is one of the reasons no one has implemented such a system. You simply CANNOT be 100% sure.

if they were really smart they would make various cheat DLC's as well, only available to the people that are already cheating/banned.

double your money that way hah

Just curious, but why do you rate it as overpriced and average?

For me, the novelty wore off very quickly, and then there wasn't much substance left to keep me coming back. It's highly overrated, and I have a lot of way more fun games to play right now that don't cost friggin $60.

Oh and then they go and fuck gamers over with $10 DLC that should have been included with the game instead of rushing out a game with less content than the average modern game. Typical EA.

It's not a terrible game, it's just not as great as their hype machine would have you believe.

Appreciate the reply. From what it looks like, they're giving new game modes away for free:


Earlier this month, Zampella confirmed that Respawn was going to add in new content that it wanted to ship at launch but had to put on the back-burner due to time constraints. He made no secret of the shooter’s free DLC, and confirmed that private matches will come for free, and that the game will not implement microtransactions.

The novelty also wore off for me, but it was replaced with fine tuning my play. I'm thoroughly enjoying it still, which is why I asked.

And I also think it feels closer to Unreal Tournament than Call of Duty. Personally had my fill of "tactical" shooters with CS 1.6, and have been jonesing for a more arcade feel to a mainstream shooter.

Q.) What if I need to cheat so that I don't end up with a 1:20 kill death ratio and consistently finish at the bottom of the server rankings?
A.) You just suck and should stick to singleplayer games.

Well I can try to speak for the overpriced part at least. There are much better PC games for a lot less. It's priced like a console game. New PC games of late seem to be selling best on Steam in the $30-$40 range. DayZ is a good example of that.

Rockstar also did this for GTA5, but never really enforced it all that heavily, sadly.

The whines and cries of the cheaters who DID get banished to the shithead pool were awesome, though.

All mp games should do this. Play with other sad little cuntsacks like yourself.

It's a good idea (and funny) but it can backfire. Respawn needs to be on top of monitoring the cheating server in order to benefit from the cheater playground (where cheats could be developed more easily than on live) since it does consume resources.

Both, and they get thier own pools. Cheaters play with cheaters and greifers play with greifers.

It has been done before on Max Payne 3.
