Without serious Anti-Cheat, this is all for nothing
Most games I get into now either on Bo2 or MW3 are almost always marred with hackers now, whats the point of all this extra work when the lack of a good anti-cheat is going to take this whole effort down. There is absolutely no way this can sustain or gain any more popularity without another wave of modders. THIS is where priorities should lie.
I disagree for MW3, i rarely see hackers. You'll never get an anticheat that has a 100% detection rate.
BO2 is due to get the same anticheat but it takes times. I can see your frustration here.
If that's not good enough for you, then feel free to play the Steam version and not complain about a free project. Creating an anticheat is not an easy task and we all have day jobs and do this for free in our spare time.
IW4X has no anticheat yet has players, so your point is moot.
Yep, Android pretty much sums it perfectly. If you don't have patience, don't play. Simple as that.
