Call of Duty Warzone growth not affected by Cheaters
While Valve and Ubisoft find ways to stop smurfing and cheaters. Activision is just tearing all cheaters apart. In a report by Activision Games Blog, more than 50,000 accounts were banned for cheating since its release.
Free Game, more hackers
The biggest issue with Call of Duty: Warzone, in my opinion, is that it is free. Well, if you look at it, it is not an issue from a cheater’s perspective. He can get banned for lifetime, but he can come back with new account and cheat again.
We have seen games like Fortnite and Apex Legends still struggling to keep their community clean. Activision should look forward to getting their IPs banned, this way they can never return after cheating. The game blog wrote various ways in which they are looking forward to improving the report system.
“We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities,” the company wrote. “This is an area we have been working on heavily, but it isn’t always something we discuss publicly.”
Activision says that there’s no place for cheating in Games, and Warzone has zero-tolerance for cheaters. Furthermore, they have a whole security team, that monitors 24/7 and investigate various reports.
The team also takes a look at aim botters, and those using wallhacks. Lastly, they are working to improve their reporting system. Improvements could make the report system much convenient and effective. Current in-game reports are properly analyzed before punishments.
