I see the cheating problem is eating the game alive now.
Are we in for a future where competitive games are hosted with an active server monitor/admin watching for cheaters?

Anti Cheat just doesn't seem to cut it anymore.
I'm only in Gold but we never run into a cheater, I've only ever reported 2 or 3 people and only 1 was 100% hacking.

I haven't touched the game in months, I do however follow the game and the current playing climate and there is a definite increase in cheaters, especially in higher ranks.
I frequent the cheater forums as well, people showing off their ranks, bragging how they've played since the start of rank without being banned. Was watching Shroud, he had cheaters in 2 out of 3 games. I know it's a problem in every game but now that ranked is a thing, most of the high ranked games have at least a couple of cheaters in them.

hoping that for future game development, they consider adding a private game feature so you could theoretically have a private BR session with just your buddies when you do get tired of the randoms.

That's working out to be free anti cheat help pretty much like CSGO Overwatch because the hackers get reported much more and there is 20 different videos of them cheating because those high ranks are 90% streamers.

The other thing ranked did was pretty much eliminate hackers because they are all in Platinum and Diamond not in Gold and lower.

I'm actually watching the shroud VOD from his last stream and they haven't run into a single hacker in 4 hours, the devs have definitely been ramping it up.

You see unfortunately the game is free to play, so they can ban as many as possible and they'll still keep coming back.
Just look at CS:GO now, there were always cheaters but after the game went free to play...holy shit.
Just this morning I was watching a montage of streamers being killed by cheaters in higher ranks, sometimes more than 1 group of cheaters in a game.

I don't know how Epic does it, I suppose they just throw money at it because Fortnite is free too, month after month has days of 10 million concurrent players, 100 million unique per month but no hacker problem.

Lately I have been getting lag crazy AF. Seems Telkom also has issues on their network. From around 11pm its butter smooth, but before then its just rubbish.

I get 150ms ping. Normally plays fine but yesterday had moments of super long delays. Not rubber banding though cos it was like a 2 second period of standing still then back to normal.

Epic does throw money at it and they do have a cheating problem.
They''ve even caught players cheating in their open tournaments.
All free 2 play competitive games suffer from it.

I have experienced very high ping on telkom lines...been using rain mobile which works well for me...though, i get around 200-210ms ping. Seems to run pretty good for me, but noticed more often occurrence when matchmaking you get the connection error code: leaf or something like that...and it kicks you out to the start screen. happens for 1 or 2 games in succession then works again as normal...random.

have only experienced the rubber banding on telkom lines...

They are working on the code:leaf and code:net, that's on them not your internet.

My ping with Vox on VDSL is 188ms usually and unless the server is bad and I get the prediction error icon I'm very happy.

I figured its their issue...because in random parties as well noticed other guys getting it...so not to worried about that, i can live with it.

Well, for me, on Rain Mobile its actually running better than on Telkom...hopefully, telkom sorts out their infrastructure in my area pretty quick...they been doing "upgrades" for around a year now...

I started playing again today for the first time in months. A bit rusty, but enjoying it a lot. Since I’m taking a break from the pubg comp scene I’ll be playing a lot more Apex.
