To me, there is like those crazy IDs with cheating club titles followed by 8 RANDOM ODD NUMBERS are much less than before, because it used to be, you know, 300K of them on Taiwan servers, now there are definitely not as much as 300K. Just kidding, I think those old familiar spammer IDs are a lot less but I think, it is still, very essential to have a report system for spammers during the legend select phase.


I see almost none of this particular hacker nickname "ach**ng12345678." A month ago there were quite a lot of this ach**ng12345678 guy. These last couple of weeks I only saw 1 ach**ng.

Also the hacking is spreading to other countries as well not just from China. EA / Respawn might claim that they ban cheater / hacker over the past few weeks but the number is not reduced,  it is still the same, more than 1 hacker in every match.

Hey all, in the blog last week, I mentioned we’d have an update on anti-cheat for Apex on PC. We’ve got some updated stats and some interesting tidbits on things we’re doing.

  • Total affected matches on PC impacted by cheaters or spammers has been reduced by over half in the last month due to recent effort

Yes, spammer is almost gone completely, good job I guess?

But hackers are still going strong, their number is still the same, more than 1 hacker in every match, so it's not reduced at least not in asian servers.

Yes they need to allow us to toggle different players in the team that killed us to report the proper player.

I also had a few games today that had cheaters, all random names too... just jumbled letters and numbers...

This is how to rollout an update and fight the honest fight. We truly appreciate the details you can provide. A lot of us have been checking out the forums here and there more than actually playing Apex. I know I want to get back onto Apex! This is really reassuring.

 

I know I've been too much of a skeptic at times, if I misjudged anyone, I'm sorry. If not, I hope you got banned- flatout. I was just trying to do my part as well. The devs surely have spent sleepless nights solving this. I applaud you guys for the hard work, this game is special- keep it up! High five

Hey all, please do not share links to any cheats you may see as doing so is technically a breach of the AHQ User Rules and Guidelines.

 

From here on out, any sharing of videos or naming of users and accusing them of cheating or linking to cheating sites will result in bans.

 

If you are in game and suspect a user of cheating then please report them by following the steps in this link: https://www.easy.ac/en-us/support/apexlegends/contact/report/

 

We take all reports very seriously and will fully investigate.

It does not matter if it is a player or a website you are reporting @Latrix14. as neither is allowed on AHQ.


You can use the link I posted above to report the website selling hacks.
