Since the update I just got now, after like 2 - 5 minutes of playing multiplayer I get kicked out of the game with the message:
Disconnected due to bad client.
I have never before got this error but I keep getting it repeatedly now.
Please look into it!
I am having the same problam. Can you please fix this and let us now that you are doing somthing about it. I am finding this very annoying
I found this info.
The latest PC patch includes added security measures to prevent our legitimate players from matching with players that are known cheaters and hackers.
Every time a legitimate player automatically quits a lobby or game due to a bad host or client they will receive a message.
"Disconnected due to bad client"
This means that we've prevented continuing play where some players had an unfair advantage (aka hackers). These players are also reported and banned when appropriate.
We believe that our legitimate players should only be matched with others that play without cheats/hacks. We realize that this may cause some issues in the short term as we begin to find and ban the bad players.
Please be patient as we let the system do its job, which is to provide you with a fair and balanced multiplayer experience as it was intended by our designers.
so why automatically quit a legitimate player and not the hacker. we have not done anything wrong but we are the ones geting kicked out
I totally agree that the cheating player should be banished and KICKED out of the game. this is most annoying. I get this message every other time I play.
It shows how many rotten eggs there are out there cheating, I don't even bother to report them anymore..
If this approach eliminates the cheaters I might continue to play the game when the worst has blown over.
as it is now its too frustrating with the pre-terminating games (I mean -who wants to spend all that time in the game lobby)
Hopefully activision removes cheaters from ranking when banning
