Apex Legends: Developers declare war on cheaters

Apex Legends

The battle royale shooter Apex Legends continues to be very popular and accordingly attracts many players. Unfortunately, there are always some cheaters and other spoilsporters among them. Although the development studio has been cracking down on these people for many months, they continue to thwart the honesty of the community. Therefore Respawn Entertainment wants to intensify the fight against the cheaters.

The team recently spoke up via Twitter and announced several steps to put an end to the spoilsport. These include:

Hiring additional employees to focus the manual ban more. Development of additional tools to automatically detect and prevent DDoS attacks. Examination of possibilities to detect cheaters more quickly and remove them from the game. Recommended editorial Content At this point you will find external content from [PLATTFORM].

How and when exactly Respawn Entertainment will tackle these steps has not yet been revealed by the team. It is clear, however, that the developers are definitely not taking this issue lightly. In the past, they did not shy away from carrying out large waves of ban and punishing high-ranking players. The team intends to intensify all of this in the near future.

Apex Legends developer Respawn commits to tackling cheaters

Apex Legends developer Respawn Entertainment has committed to fixing cheating in ranked, but in turn, has sparked a community hashtag that has trended on Twitter.

Cheating in the higher-tiers of Apex Legends ranked has been an ongoing heated issue for the game's community, and it appears to have spilled over past boiling point in the last day. 

Yesterday, Respawn Entertainment committed itself to tackle the cheating problem. In a post on Twitter, it tweeted out: 

However, sections of the community has hit back. In a TwitLonger post that has been retweeted over 11,200 times, professional Apex Player Chris 'sweetdreams' Sexton shared a post complaining about the number of cheaters in high level ranked. It reads: 'We are so done with it, it's to the point where we literally DO NOT know what to do, we just sit around month over month and nothing changes and it's demoralizing. Please take initiative and #SaveApexRanked, before it's too late.'

The hashtag #SaveApexRanked has now trended across the world. It has been used by many notable Apex streamers and professional players, including ImperialHal, Daltoosh, iiTzTimmy, and Nokokopuffs. 

Respawn Entertainment director of communications, Ryan K. Rigney commented on the post, agreeing with portions of it, but arguing with some of the language used. Circling a line in Sexton's Twitlonger that reads, 'don't let respawns tweet about intentions to help ranked fool you', he tweeted: 

Elsewhere, Apex Legends game designer Brian Vidovic added his take, echoing much of the sentiment saying:

He finished by saying: 'Again, I get the frustration. BUT! Game development is insanely difficult. It is nonsense any games ever get finished TBH. But I get it. Please be patient. We'll fix it. We always do.'

It's a salient point and one which is a reminder that the people behind the game care as much, if not more so, about the integrity of it as its fanbase. One way or another, here's hoping that Respawn can indeed get the cheating situation under control and make higher-end play a better experience for all.
