The developers of Respawn Entertainment published an impressive letter on Reddit yesterday, where they talked about their plans and results of the fight against cheaters in the acclaimed Apex Legends game.
“We are working on improvements to combat cheaters, and we’re going to have to be pretty secretive about our plans. Cheaters are crafty, and we don’t want them to see us coming.”
The Easy Anti-Cheat system rather effectively helps to fight dishonest players and thus has already “improved” the game on more than 355 thousand banned accounts. In their message, the developers indicated that they are looking for ways to deal with players who spam during character selection and after that leave the match immediately.
Respawn also told that AMD representatives will visit their studio soon and together they will work to improve stability and performance of the game.
“In the next client patch on PC we will be addressing some of the known crashes, but there will still be work to do as we haven’t nailed down all crashes yet.”
The developers mentioned the issue of reconnections to matches and explained why they are not yet working on this problem. First, they fear the abuse of this opportunity by the players. Secondly, the resources that will be required to create, test and release this system are currently going to increase the stability of the game. Therefore, those players who complain about the lack of such an opportunity will have to wait for some indefinite time.
At the end of their message, the developers emphasised once again that they consider every complaint of players, including they are aware of the problem of poor server performance at the beginning of the match - “unfortunately there is no silver bullet on this one. We’re just rolling up our sleeves and digging in. We’ll keep you updated on any progress we make.”
