Gotta say reading through the list of things you are adding… it is a lot of talk and not a lot of action.
Lets look at what you are actually doing to combat cheating…
Firstly SMS for accounts, could have been implented ages ago and now you finally doing it after 6 years. What a huge step forward, this should have been done years ago, there is no justification for how long this has taken.
Oh we don’t have a problem with smurfs, we like seeing the Bronze to GM runs
Hmmmmm but now you do care… why? Because you know that if your f2p audience have to play in games in Silver with people who are actually Diamond they won’t want to buy your precious skins… so you are doing something. But for OG players… you had the money upfront so who cares right?
Then lets look at your counters for Cheats basically a whole load of waffle. You don’t give any stats, you don’t list off anything your team have achieved. You go on about reverse engineering… why were 2 people in the top 10 using cheats in NA? Why is the ranked #1 EU using cheats?
Your cheat engine is terrible and you present no stats to backup anything you say.
You’ve removed global chat… wow that must have taken one like of code to remove, great job I can’t actually believe that counts as an update but well done on removing the odd twitch spam or genuine conversation about your terrible balance patches, experiemental blunders and the only place for people to chat whilst queuing upto 10minutes in games… gj!
Removing the rank when queued makes no sense, you are literally trying to cover up who is what level and how bad your matchmaking has been so far. You put two silver dps up against 2 gold dps and pretend there is no difference… when there is. You put a Diamond Tank into a Masters tank and think thats ok… its not and it ruins games. Now you are trying to hide it from the audience playing your game.
Also I don’t care if you record the toxic chat, you realise this system will just be a bunch of recordings with people saying ‘Swap off this character, you are throwing get the f*** off this character’. I hope that someone actually listens to these recordings instead of assumes because they said a bad word they are in the wrong.
Not impressed with anything you have added, it is really just words and an SMS authenticiation that has been implemented for money reasons.
