What do you do when...

What do you do when you are accused of cheating in your favorite FPS?

Let me preface this with the fact that I would never, nor have I ever, cheated in an online game. The closest I have ever done is mess with some CVARs in RTCW (which at the time was not illegal in match play).

I've been accused of cheating in almost every online FPS game I have played. I just get in a zone and go on rampages. That is one of the reasons for my name. I get in patterns and know when to retreat and lick my wounds and when to advance. It works for me, so that's what I do.

When I'm accused, I usually just laugh. It's funny because no matter what you say to the other person...deny the accusations, laugh at them, berate them...they won't change their mind. After I laugh, I usually have my fun with them in one way or another.

Tonight I played on Daqing Oilfields and hopped in the F15. I did my happy bombing runs until I saw the opposing SU30. I decided to protect my fellow troops on the ground and went after him. After he finally shook me and I went back to rearm, I read on the global line, "Hey cocksucker in the bomber, leave me alone and bomb your own ground targets". I couldn't help but laugh, but all I said was that I didn't accept his proposal and decided to take it upon myself to hunt him more than I normally would. Honestly, who the hell would expect any opposing pilot to agree to that?

After taking him out, he said "no one can be that steady" and mentioned that I must be using a control program. After having some fun with him, I got on his tail and took him down, and he stormed off the server just after typing that he would report me to EA. Unfortunately, I couldn't get anything out before he left other than laughing at him. It really makes no sense to me to accuse people of cheating simply because they are better than you. I have been absolutely owned in the air, but I just attribute it to someone that puts more time into the game than I do.

The funny part was I decided to do a compare against this guy, and I really wasn't that impressed with his numbers. He had more overall losses than wins (marginally). He almost had a 1:1 kill/death ratio in the air, which boggles my mind actually. I guess if I were him, I would think dying after taking out one ground target would be par for the course.

*shrug* Just ranting I guess...

Carnage,

I get that in BF2 also... My favorite thing is when they make up impossible cheats like a M203/GP30 aimbot, or I use some kind of accuracy hack for mounted machine guns (that are pin point accurate already).

Sometimes I get pissed about it, but usually I ignore them. Depends on how well I'm playing. I've said "Look I am an admin on here, and I do not hack" and had people continue to go off about it. I then tell them "Go play somewhere if you think I hack, because I am not leaving" and they still go off. When the vote kicks start gaining ground on me (I have done this twice before getting kicked from a server I help admin) I have kicked the guy calling the vote. I don't do this imediately and I have only done it twice. One puke can get people to focus attention on you and then their imaginations run wild and they start to agree with the idiot.

I am wondering if there is something out there for flying hacks. I saw a guy tonight playing that twice went without being killed in a plane. The whole fucking round not once but twice. 44-0 and something like 38-0. It just wasnt right, I understand there are some good plane flyers (me not being one of them) but to go two straight rounds without a single death, fuck up, or shoot down by igla or something is just ridiculous.

if you are a cmder and you fly you can usually do pretty good. Just scan an area you are bout to fly over and strafe into them. I do pretty good at hitting known spots even when I haven't seen an enemy. People always hide in the same areas and use the same avenues of aproach so its not hard to kill a bunch of people.

That in and of itself would not turn my head. I have played entire rounds in the air without dying on many occasions. Now, if the guy is doing what Derfel said, then I would be suspicious...as long as the guy is far from any points of interest. I have done strafing runs to see if I could take out infantry near flags and along roads, or if the commander dropped a UAV somewhere and Im just shooting blindly where I think the guy is. If I was a spec ops in the middle of nowhere or in a building and was taken out by gunfire from a jet, I would be pissed.

if someone accuses you of hacking and you don't want to deal with it, go kill someone else... you don't have to leave server, just switch to helo or brush up on tank or something...

I think that is the last thing I would do. Why should anyone have to change the way they play simply because someone on the other team can't deal with being killed.

ha, when someone starts to rip on you, just do what would piss them off the most...find them and kill them like that was your sole purpose in life. Whenever I kill someone and they get me back later and add "u like that?!" I just go around until I find them and then I make their life hell. If anyone accuses you of cheating, just ignore them...Some guy in the server said one of the Porn guys was cheating and i'm pretty sure the Porn guy firmly bent him over for the rest of the night....those Porn guys are ridiculous....remember, this is just a fricking game and you never know if you are about to blow the head off a 30 year old or some 13 year old with an inferiority complex...
