We won't know for sure if hacks are patched until the servers actually are up again.
1. To start the game without the website, go to your combat arms folder and find CombatArms_Direct. It's the original way to start the game.
2. You can actually start the game with the direct launch but it will d/c you no matter what. Even if you don't start with hacks it will disconnect. My error was something bout the Hackshield and how it didn't properly start.
