      I hate PUBG. I hate Fortnite. I like Apex Legends. It's a hero and squad-based BR.

      I played it a few times on PS4.
      Pwnd every time.
      Just like PubG or Fortnite, you need to learn the maps/items to get proficient.

      ive played a few rounds. i suck at it.

      I thought my weapon was full auto, it was 3rnd burst, i got the jump on some baddies, hit em with 3 rounds then he and his buddies smoked me. Then i fell off a bridge. Then I just died a few times before i even know what hit me.

      Breakthru!!! more game need to do this....

      Permanent hardware bans

      https://www.dailyesports.gg/apex-leg...ermanent-bans/

      I don't really think it is a new invention. It is more like game devs don't want to do this to cut off their "customers". But I guess when you have 50M+ players, you can afford to do this....

      And I am happy these f̶x̶x̶k̶e̶r̶ cheater are complaining about this.

      While there are some ways (difficult as they may be) around Respawn’s hardware ban, most cheaters are still furious. Their anger isn’t just directed at Respawn, but at the websites or companies that sold them the cheats. A good majority of these cheats cost anywhere from $60 to $150, depending on the program. That is a lot of money to pay to have your account banned a day later. However, the websites that sell these cheats are promising the buyers undetectable and unbannable hacks. While some of these do get through the Anti-Cheat software, many are being flagged and leaving the buyers unable to play Apex on the same PC again.
      How much of a loser are you to spend this much $$ to cheat in game? a free-2-play game that won't earn you anything...

      I think they are either people with money to burn and just want to be jerks or people who think they can get a seat at an esports event and possibly win something (money) that way? Although i would think a more tightly regulated esporting event would reveal their use of cheats or their lack of skills playing without the cheats. Also stats padding. Back when i played CS decades ago wallhacks and cheats would come in waves and i experimented with some of them. I did it to see what i was up against and if someone was cheating in the server it was fun to turn the cheats on and troll them until they left. Nowadays i would think the servers are collecting enough data that cheaters will quickly be identified and at a minimum given a soft ban until a person can verify what was actually going on.

      One thing that's interesting is the methods to cheat in FPS games hasn't really changed much. In CS there was a cheat program that turned all the models bright red or bright green, then whenever your reticle was aiming at that color it would fire the weapon. It worked good for one-hit kill weapons but not much else. Another one modified the texture files and only worked on specific gfx cards for wall hacks. Another attempted to remove weapon recoil with mouse inputs. Nearly none of them worked as advertised, or at least my puny computer wasn't powerful enough to run the game plus the cheating software at the same time.

      it looks like more sophisticated versions of old hacks. im glad people are getting banned for it tho, it's pretty lame.
