The developers from Apex Legends have a special gift for cheaters, and that is a big ban. More than a quarter million of them, months after the launch of the game, were no longer provided access to play. Hackers are all over the PC version of the game as no fee is requested for playing. However, this situation is being kept under control by Respawn, the developer.
What is Respawn planning to do regarding this issue?
The Respawn Community Manager decided to asses this problem during a recent update post by talking about the effectiveness of Easy-Anti-Cheat which is a software used in the game that bans cheaters.
Capital Games, EA Security and Fraud, their fellow developers at DICE, the Origin teams, FIFA and the developers themselves are all working as a team even though Easy-Anti-Cheat can be relied on. Several updates have already been rolled out, but it takes a while until they settle in the game. However, the updates do not stop there.
What Respawn has to say about their plans?
“While we can’t share details on what we’re doing so as to not give a head’s up to the cheat makers, what we can say is that we’re attacking this from every angle, from improvements to detecting cheaters, bolstering resources and tools, to improving processes and other sneaky things to combat sellers and cheaters.”
The counting of cheaters being banned out of the game does not stop and Respawn even mentioned in their last update blog that almost half a million of them received their gift. By now Apex Legends has lost 770k cheaters thanks to the tool the developer is using to get rid of them. New cheats have also been discovered thanks to it as well as detecting the ones that could not have been earlier.
