The All Points Bulletin team is cracking down on cheaters in a big way stating they have “basically KILLED almost every cheater” on their servers, but are holding out one last olive branch to give cheaters another chance at coming clean.
The team is allowing all banned cheaters one last chance to come back and play nice, stating,
make a new account – and then play nice in the community for the next few weeks while we roll out the next several changes, and then pray we MAY let you continue on the new account before we launch the next anti-cheat patch
APB did not say how they were able to catch the cheaters only that they can no longer hide, stating, “we are ratcheting up the cheat hunting in such a manner that you cannot return. Ever.”
Along with this stern warning to cheaters, some stats were released about the type of accounts that were recently banned. It seems 50% of the cheaters were also paying customers, some spending quite a bit of money in the game, while others had over 1500+ hours of gameplay.
So not only were these players cheating, they were cocky about it thinking thet’d never get caught. I can’t stand cheaters in any game, so I don’t feel the slightest bit of pity for them, I’m glad they lost their accounts, time and money, they deserve it for ruining the game for everyone else.
I’m also glad to hear APB is so confident about their new anti-cheating system and I wish them the best of luck against these cheating bastards :)
You have ONE LAST CHANCE to stay with this game before we go live. Don’t F-that last chance up.
