Boosters

DaRyuujin

You know..the boosting in this game is getting rediclious Obviously the "report and move on" stand on it isn't helping curb the boosting activity considering I'm finding boosters on a nightly basis. It pretty much ruins the fun of the game when you have somebody on your team 0-22 and somebody gets a swarm from boosting, then moves to another lobby and repeats whats the point in pl;aying this game legit when its obvious 3arc isn't doing much to deter boosting, IW ****** ALOT up but atleast they have a ******* enforcment team to tackle boosters instead of letting them run wild

    I've seen one pair in hundreds of games.

     

    Keep reporting... can't fix the community all at once.

  • Re: Boosters

    hmm what gamemodes are you playing? I play alot of dom/kc and have hardly seen any boosters maybe one or two out of my entire playing time.

    Have around 100 hours in and I can't say that I have seen anyone boosting for sure. In my 240 hours of MW3 I can say for sure I only saw two or three set of boosters. I have more to worry about than If they want to boost and have the false sense of accomplishment.

    Ive been finding alot in hard point. no lie I have come across atleast 20 dif sets of them. My point of IW atleast getting the anti-cheating part of their game right was that for MW3 was there was an enforcment team that made sure boosteres were found and punished, not relying on a unexplained system that may finally flag a  booster after X amount of people report him (often not many people realize they are boosting so they get away with it more games then not) how many reports does it take? 5? 10? 20? do they reset each week? If a booster boosts during januray but stops for febuary and goes back in march are they safe? Nobody really knows because its all "report and move on"

     

     

    Sorry I dont like to rely on or trust that to know cheaters go punished in this game when the whole general attitude towards them are "oh report and move on", I like the "show us proof so we can get those mofos" attitude ALOT better It just seems like IW was willing to put forth the extra effort to make sure cheaters were caught ASAP and taken care of preferably before they have ****** up god knows how many lobbies with their non stop non legit high kill streaks (Hell I ollowed one guy the other night trying to mess up his boosting and he got multiplble VTOLS, swams and lodestars throughout the night in different lobbies, and most post game lobbies I say "you know they were boosting right" the people with mics usually replied "what?? who was boosting" so if they can slip by that well whos to say they will ever reeach the un determined amount of reports needed for action, Ive found 10th presteige boosters with obvious boosting states in their combat record (almost all used guns have nbearly as many headshots as kills? yea ok) that had to of been going on for awhile..they sure havnt been caught by the "report and move on" tatic

    I'v seen a few in HC:TDM and as there is usually 3-5 of us playing together we gang up on the boosters and kill them before there boosting buddy gets the kills or just chase him round the map trying to get him killed by the other team, we all report the players involved and get the video from theater and send it to the support team.

     

    Thats all u can do really, we make it into a game of wind up the boosters as they are usually children

    Boosting is ridiculous in capture the flag. Clans are spawn trapping while holding the flag getting double points and then releasing vtol warships/ dogs/ swarms. Etc. I've been thrown into lobbies where I choose my class and instantly get killed. I check the scores and nobody on my team has a kill while the enemy is 30-0, 40-0.... And don't even get me started on hijacked that is a spawn trappers paradise

    • Re: Boosters
      prncdamd

      U could call it boosting but its actually spawn killing or spawn camping, but the boosting talked about in this thread is when there is a player on either team who are buds and they get in a corner out of the way 1 puts a tactical insertion down while repeatedly being killed by his bud from the other team.

       

      We actually did that today on HC:CTF but not to that extent 1 play got the flag on our team ran back to our flag and sat in a corner while we ran round killing, notice i say RAN not sat in a corner or used any scorestreak, that is why I dont play HC:CTF as its spawn camping heaven

    • Re: Boosters
      DaRyuujin

      Well there is a difference in spawn trapping and boosting, im talking bout the kids who hide off in a random corner far away from an objective and tac insert while their buddy head shots them 20+ times

    • Re: Boosters

      Spawn trapping if not boosting, but i know what your talking about especially when I've joined some HC CTF games on hijacked you can't get out of your spawn. Point is though those people manuvered as a team to trap you there and frankly if you and your entire team get trapped like that it's your own fault.

    seeing people with 100 kills on a AR with 100 headshots. hmm seems legit.

    • Re: Boosters
      DaRyuujin

      its about like seeing somebody with 5,000 kills about about 4800 being headshots..and they are 10th presteige...yea boosters are getting banned alright  (just wanted to point that out before foxhound comes in and acts liek a politician and avopids the issue with "report and move on boosters will get banned" before locking the thread instead of explaining how if boosters get banned some have been at it for so long

    Every single person that plays Black Ops 2 has the ability to report booster/cheaters. Every single player can help improve the community. We are all enforcers on Black Ops 2. So use that feature in game to keep the community solid and get rid of those that boost/cheat.

     

    See a booster? Report them in game, move on and enjoy yourself in the next lobby.

    You mean like the TWO why was I banned threads on the front page right at his moment ?

    • Re: Boosters
      DaRyuujin

      no I mean like the 10+ high presteige guys Ive caught doing it that have been doing it for awhile by looking @ their combat record, of course the few who get caught are gonna come here and cry, its not like the ones who are getting away with it will come "omg This is stupid I havent been banned for boosting yet this is stupid im going to quit COD if im not banned soon!!"

  • Re: Boosters

    yuup a second set of boosters in a hour span..glad to see how well 3arcs report and move on approach is working...I might as well start cheating for my titles/camos =.=

    • Re: Boosters

      I have to agree the report and move on doesn't really work and it doesn't really inspire confidence in the community . A player has to be flagged a number of times to even get noticed 

         I still look through the modding sites etc and its a bad day when the cheaters are complaining that boosters aren't getting dealt with lol I kid you not ! But in Treyarchs defence I have noticed a slight increase in OMG I'm banned threads but nothing significant :(

      I feel your pain, but it doesn't happen instantly. It takes a bit for them to filter through the hundreds of reports, go through all the data they need to go through and then ban them. They can't just say "Oh, looks like xXSOandSOXx got reported for boosting" ~flips a switch~..."Well that takes care of that".  I once gave video proof of some boosters and it took them a couple months before I saw them banned. Give it time. They will eventually get banned.

      • Re: Boosters

        I have to disagree as part of IWEnforcers if someone sent me a report it was normally delt with that day . I would get all the reports check through them separate the BS from the real reports and send them

        all off at about 7 PM GMT and the excellent work from Candise etc it was all done by (normally) 8/9 PM GMT every single day !

          Bahaha I think your the one I had on my friends list that I was putting vids  in my vault for haha lord i know i got alot of people reset through you

        • Re: Boosters
          jwaller123

          My apologies for being misinformed then, , but here is a question if you are able to answer it. If one sends video proof, then how can it take so long? Like in the matter of my comment. It took almost two months. (this was in MW3) Was it maybe just reported in a wake of many others and it just took that long to sift through it? I am glad that the boosters and cheaters do get dealt with, but I do wish it was a bit more swift than my previous experiance. Do you do anything for Treyarch or are you just part if IW?

          • Re: Boosters

            It depends where you sent it ? No they closed the Enforcers near the end of MW3 life . I did hear through the grape vine that Treyarch where going to set up a similar system but the powers that be decided against it . I was asked if I wanted to do it again and said I would as it was a good experience and you know stuff that the public don't lol .

                  But I'm not quite sure on the credibility of the person that contacted me about Treyarchs plans it may have been BS but all the ex community enforcers where contacted so who know ?

    • Re: Boosters
      nicedrewishfela

      Don't blame the Devs, blame the idiots who are doing it. What you can do is REPORT THEM. There are a lot more of us out here than there are of them. REPORT IT and move on.

       

      I wonder what game mode you are playing that you are seeing this so much. I have seen it happen one time in hundreds of games of HC TDM.

       

      Report the people you catch. Get the people in the lobby to report them. Get your friends to report them. Go to their GamerCard and Avoid them.

       

      Stop obsessing.

      • Re: Boosters
        DaRyuujin

        Like I said I've been finding them in Hard point...and its kind of an issue when your having to deal with high level scorestreaks each and every night only to realize its from a high presteige booster thats been boosting for awhile...(I swear Ive had more booster Vtols and swarms called on me then Legit ones) it would be one thing if it was just low level people but the fact ive seen majority of them be up in the higher presteige and again with combat records showing that they have been boosting for awhile tends to make me think the "report" system isn't as solid as they would like top think

         

        I guess I just miss the days in MW3 where I could show video evidence to an enforcer and be able to look up their gamertag w/i the next 24/48 hrs and them be reset EVERY time

         

        Thats why I blame the Devs, they arent being ACTIVE enough to go after cheaters, instead its just "oh trust us our system works just fine*coughlagcompcough* when it obviously does not work as well as they would like to think or else boosters wouldnt be getting up in the high presteiges with thousands of boosted kills on multible weapons as often as they are, they dont like to admit when a system they make is flawed and dont want to make the small bit of extra effort to handle it

         

        Cause really whats harder going through a bunch of game logs to search for boosting..or looking at a 15 second video SHOWING it? Hell if they are worried about people wasting their time make a post

         

         

        "SuBMIT VIDEO EVIDENCE OF BOOSTERS HERE"
        explain what needs to be shown in video (both gamer tags, back to back kills of a tac inserter" and then go on to mention anybody subimiting false videos will be temp banned from the forums

         

        Bet if they did that boosting issues would drop drastically

         

        but that would require a tad bit of effot....

        • Re: Boosters
          nicedrewishfela

          Now that is a sensible argument.

           

          It sucks that boosters are ruining the game for you... there must be something about that mode that is booster friendly that I don't see in TDM.

           

          I know with the IW Enforcers there were issues with some members going overboard with their "powers".

           

          I think my biggest complaint has been the lack of communication from 3Arc on this title. No Patch Notes. No Hotfix info. No info on when HC modes may be added.

           

          I agree that they need to be more forthcoming and offer up a way to escalate these issues. It's not an easy fix, and things won't ever be perfect because this community always seems to find the cheap way out. But for now, the option we have is to keep reporting and do it often.

            DaRyuujin

            I've seen this video..and as I said their system does NOT WORK like they want it to/claim it to because again ive seen too many people that have gotten away with ALOT of boosting, which means they have ruined ALOT of game lobbies, its sad when the one response to boosting 3arc does has a guy saying "when X amount of reports are files...i dont know how many but when that limit is reached we look!!"

             

            Sure they catch some I wont sit here and deny that...but ever wonder just how many they arent catching? if one person can find atleast 10 high level people who have done TONS of boosting just imagine how many more must be out there

             

            My whole point is 3 arc needs to be MORE proactive in the pursuit of cheaters instead of "report and move on" because again that doesn't seem to work like they think it does

             

            When playing COD if you have died more times from high score/killstreaks that boosters have called out then you have legit ones then there is obviously an issue thats not being handled and is affecting players experiences (like we dont have enough BS to deal with)

             

            Imagine if casinos didnt actively go after cheaters "oh he got a royal flush 3 times in a row..ok we will take note of that untill X amount of people tell us..then we will look into the matter even though by then he will of swindled people out of thousands upon thousands of dollars"

            • Re: Boosters

              That's what I think IW done right they where really proactive in actually going out and finding cheats not just waiting for reports to come in .

                   Like the modding sites etc we made their lives hell lol :D and they knew they where being watched which was a good deterrent . They where all running scared go on those forums today it's a completely different story ! Cheating galore ! 

              • Re: Boosters
                DaRyuujin

                now the cheaters can see that they arent a very big concern in 3arcs eyes. The only thing that lowers cheating is knowing for SURE that cheaters are being punished, only way to do that is actively go after then not passively wait for reports that most people think dont work.

                 

                you know how many people have said "i dont bother reporting them, it never works"


                While in MW3 it was "i saved a video of your boosting enjoy your reset/ban

                  My question is.. how do you know they aren't? We don't know what is going on behind the scenes. And maybe that lack of knowledge on our part is part of the issue... but you are assuming a bit too much.

                  • Re: Boosters
                    DaRyuujin

                    Again, when I alone have found so many high level boosters that by looking at their combat records its CLEAR they have done alot of boosting it makes me have no faith in the system. no lie saw one guy with a AR that who had like 5000 or so kills and 4800 .were headshots with a insaine accuracy, and multible other weapons looked the same way

                     

                    so no its not lack of knolwledge, its seing SO many boosters that have gotten away with it for far too long, finding them damn near each and every night and finding more boosted high scorestreaks then legit ones that lead me to "assume" that their system isnt doing its job properly

                     

                     

                    I remember how it went in MW# TONS of boosters and i mean TONS, then the IW enforcment team came out, shortly after boosters were suddenly harder to find and much less frequent...
