Agent Cyril M
( 3s ) Cyril M: Activision Support reporting for duty!
( 14s ) Cyril M: Thank you for contacting Activision Customer support. My name is Cyril. May I know your name and how may I help you today?
( 34s ) Distiny: Hi, I got a question regarding Ghosts' so called anti cheat.
( 48s ) Distiny: I see cheaters and hackers rampaging like crazy on PC
( 1m 6s ) Distiny: IW claims they got an anti cheat in place though
( 1m 41s ) Cyril M: I see. Thank you fro reporting this to us Sir. Before you ask, may I have your gamertag and console please?
( 2m 1s ) Distiny: I play on the PC, not consoles and there lies the problem
( 2m 32s ) Distiny: I reversed the game and noticed their "Live Anti Cheat" is purely stats based and only works on consoles
( 2m 44s ) Cyril M: I'm sorry for that Sir.
( 2m 49s ) Distiny: It gathers console ID, so it can or not apply a ban
( 3m 18s ) Distiny: and seeing Valve doesn't have a 64bit version of VAC ready yet it means us PC gamers are left in the cold
( 5m 50s ) Cyril M: Sir, in PC, players have Steam accounts. To report the cheats, there are three ways to do it. First is to report in in-game. Second is to report their gamertags or their Steam account name or ID. Last is to send an email to the Infinity Ward through their email address firstname.lastname@example.org
. You can send also videos to them.
( 6m 31s ) Distiny: I don't want to be rude here but you know that's just a placebo effect to ease the mind of the avarage gamer.
( 6m 45s ) Distiny: I know because I'm a hardcore cheater myself
( 7m 3s ) Distiny: The ingame report features isn't sending any info for PC players
( 7m 10s ) Distiny: I reversed the function
( 7m 45s ) Distiny: I prestiged to max 20 mins after the game launched, I topped the leaderboards with insane scores on day 1, now so many weeks later I'm still not banned
( 7m 54s ) Distiny: so truth be told I'm a bit baffled
( 9m 13s ) Cyril M: I see. Did you mean that you were hacked and got those high stats Sir?
( 9m 36s ) Distiny: is it the lack of people playing on PC and the big amount of cheaters that make them not wanting to ban a large amount of the players (which will ruin their stats regarding pc and all the consequences regarding funding, marketing etc etc)
( 9m 52s ) Distiny: no I mean I hacked them myself...
( 10m 39s ) Distiny: The "issue" I'm trying to bring up is why they lack the will to actually ban me and all those other blatant cheaters ?
( 11m 25s ) Distiny: The bad rep? Admitting their PC game is infested with cheaters ? Admitting they got 0 Anti cheat protectiong on PC?
( 12m 25s ) Cyril M: I see. Thank you fro verifying that Sir. Thank you also for reporting this to us. About the anti cheat you said, we at Activision Support don't have any information about it. I just heard it from you just now.
( 12m 41s ) Distiny: I understand IW/Activision can't just say, fu pc players but keep telling them to send vids and report them etc etc but you know as well as I do that info doesn't get looked at
( 13m 45s ) Cyril M: Here's the thing I can do about this. I will take this as a feedback from you and let our assigned team know about that concern of yours.
( 13m 51s ) Distiny: I understand you don't know much about the inner workings (game code) obviously but seeing a franchise like CoD fail so much year after year in IW hands it gets kind of... pathetic I think is the best to describe it
( 15m 8s ) Distiny: 3arc Did a great job regarding Anti cheat on PC, I got banned multiple times so their system works, I hope your company can convince IW to put a little more effort into their game
( 15m 40s ) Cyril M: Thank you for reaching out with regards to that. I certainly respect your point of view with regard to the game. If you wish, I
can forward that as feedback to the appropriate parties to let them know how you feel about this and if you have anything you might want to share as suggestion.
( 16m 23s ) Distiny: Get Valve to work on their x64 version of VAC
( 16m 47s ) Distiny: I want to thank you for listening and be honest about this matter
( 16m 59s ) Cyril M: I see. Thank you for sharing insights about the game. I'll be more than happy to forward them to the appropriate parties. These are very useful information to help us know how the games would be improved and can be used as future reference, so we highly appreciate you for taking your time just to let us know. Thank you.
( 17m 11s ) Distiny: Happy holidays
( 17m 35s ) Distiny: Good evening.
( 17m 46s ) Cyril M: Aside from this issue, is there anything else that I can assist you with?
