Update: spoke to Zebleer, the admin of one of the more popular Call of Duty cheats called Phantom Overlay. They do think that generally the new kernel anti-cheat will be effective. "I think that the 'cheating problem' in Call of Duty is officially over" vice.com/en/article/z3xjqa/c…

Sure - More successful in the same way that locking people up for thought crimes prevents crimes. Or something. It's not exactly easy to trust a closed system developed by a corporation whose sole purpose is to make money.

But banning cheaters helps them make money so not sure what point you're making

its how they're all going. So really, get used to it..every game will eventually function at this level..and eventually hardware, as W11 is incorporating TPM...so..yeah..:) give it 5 years till hardware locks. or less, depending on how fast they get around the kernel software.

Learning to reverse engineer software on video games is cool, but imagine playing baseball for years by the rules and having to play against teams that use machines to pitch 500mph fastballs and plays 50 outfielders. It's obnoxious. They should be banned for a period of time.

"kernel anti-cheats typically much more successful than others" - no source / case study / anything?

I'm curious why this is news worthy. EAC, BE, VGK, FACEIT, ESEA, and many more operate in the kernel and still have a difficult time keeping cheaters kicked back. The most effective are Vanguard, EAC, and ESEA/FACEIT (private leagues). Took 6 years for Activision to get the hint.

Game companies need to stop blowing tons of money on garbage like this and instead just hire staff to ban people that get caught cheating. This won't prevent people from cheating, it will just make cheats less accessible. Cheating can never be stopped completely
