A little more than seven days prior Respawn declared that it’s taking a more grounded position against cheating in Apex Legends. Today, it uncovered that it’s blocked 770,000 players, 300,000 account creations and 4,000 cheat seller accounts. The organization says this is only the start of its fight to takedown swindles.
“We can’t share details on what we’re doing so as to not give a head’s up to the cheat makers, but what we can say is that we’re attacking this from every angle,” the company wrote on its blog. Respawn says it’s made reporting cheats in the game easier, committed more resources to detect cheats and “other sneaky things to combat sellers and cheaters.” Respawn is reportedly working with experts across EA, as well as Easy-Anti-Cheat and developers at DICE, FIFA and Capital Games.
Apex Legends’ quick ascent to prevalence is one reason it has such a significant number of con artists, Respawn said in an ongoing blog entry. In its first week, the game pulled in 25 million all out players, and in its first month, its fanbase passed 50 million around the world. It’s needed to work out a couple of crimps and has discharged a few patches, including those to adjust its most dominant weapons, guarantee players’ progress isn’t eradicated and resize hitboxes.
Yet, the majority of that work in a short measure of time negatively affected the organization and its representatives. Respawn has since laid out an arrangement to space out content updates to maintain a strategic distance from crunch. It’s anti-cheating endeavors, however, will be progressing, and you can anticipate that those updates should take off as they create.
