Well this could be sort of delicious. Titanfall developers Respawn are now using a system called FairFight to detect cheaters on PC. And when they find them? Those players get lobbed into a server with fellow miscreants, in what the team describe as "the Wimbledon of aimbot contests".
Here's the brilliantly acidic message Respawn have for cheaters.
"Great news: you get to keep playing Titanfall! Less-great news: you only get to play with other cheaters. You can play with other banned players in something that will resemble the Wimbledon of aimbot contests. Hopefully the aimbot cheat you paid for really is the best, or these all-cheater matches could be frustrating for you. Good luck."
Also, while just being in a party with a banned player will send you to this cheat-happy nega-zone, if you quit said party you'll be invited straight back to a real server. You can read the full post on the.
Seems like an amusingly creative way to deal with aimbot users and other multiplayer cheats. One of the problems with anti-cheat programmes is that inevitably innocent users get accidentally stitched up, but it seems like Respawn is doing what it can to make sure that if you get falsely accused, you can appeal the verdict. There's an email address to contact if you think you've been unfairly treated.
