How Secure is the Game?

★ Guide

Hi guys and devs, just wondering how Secure is Anthem? Is there any work or programming to prevent hacking and cheating?

The game (thankfully) has no PVP, so I'm not convinced it's exactly a hacking & cheating magnet. Oops

Just wondering sometimes I get disconnected from the  server, could it be someone hacking the main server?

very unlikely. maybe ISP problem or anthem server issue.

as said this isnt PVP so no point in hacking and i dont think its P2P either so even harder than with say destiny.

Hi.  I think the cheating here would be termed exploitation.  I would go out on the limb and say that we are being monitored for exploiting via some sort of fluid, configurable data mining app (ok how many found this spawn in Free World?)  I personally have not come across a mainstream MMO that did not have a "exploitation clause" stating something like, "if we botched or missed something and you splurge or go on a shopping spree on us, STOP NOW, as we're coming after you with the Full Arm and Power of the Game Master Law and ban you far into next-gen MMOs.

 

This usually amounts to gaining an advantage that is outside of the intended designed gameplay or mechanics.  There are reports of such bans, temporary or not, happening to a few Anthem players.

If it were that kind of server problems we'd probably be all experiencing them.

 

In the past, I've encountered problems with online games due to internet exchange points along the route my ISP was using suffering from DDOS-attacks. All friends using the same ISP suffered the same problems.

Lol, there is literally nothing to gain from that in this so called game! 

 

Absolutely NOTHING!

Well, I am usually not experiencing connection problems, and that's what we're talking about here.
