Cheating in Battlefield 4

There are obviously people who cheat on Battlefield 4. They are either using Aimbots or Triggerbots. The instantaneous kills they score is simply humanly impossible. They would appear from out of line of sight and the killing burst or shot would be instantaneous. I am not a good player but I am sure that I am the victim of a number of cheaters. My ping times aren't terrible, it wouldn't be lag.

I saw that three thousand accounts have been banned on Battlefield 4 so far, at least according to a site that I saw. According to the same site, forty-three thousand accounts have been banned on Battlefield 3.

I went to a site which describes different types of cheats. It is appalling as to  the number of types of such programmes available and employed. The site advised cheaters not to be obvious about their cheating as the cheaters can get reported and banned. I hope the makers of Battlefield 4 can find the means to clamp down most of these cheaters. Cheating spoils the game for everyone.

Under the stars

Sweetie and I were walking by the sea last week. The skies were awashed with stars, more than the miserable usual average. It was magical.

Entertainment at its best

This has been one of the most entertaining football seasons in a long time. There were many changes at the top of the table. Hilarious. First, a Manure meltdown, then, an Arsenal meltdown, then Chelsea, now, a Liverpool meltdown.

35.5 degrees

The temperature on Saturday afternoon hit 35.5 degrees. I cannot remember a time when it was this hot in Singapore.

Battlefield 4 first impressions

I started on Battlefield 4 six months after its release in October last year. I started late. Most of my friends have all stopped playing.

I thought most of the people who bought the game might have stopped, leaving only the hardcore players who had had lots of practice and are very good.

I was extremely rusty and I did not know the maps. I was massacred when I played a few games on Sunday. However, I gradually began to get some kills of my own. My weapons lacked accessories but it was my gameplay that was lacking. I was never as good as the average player in the past despite my practice, I had to rely on hiding and then shooting and then hiding again. That was the only possible means for me to even the odds.

I tried a few maps and the impressions were that that it was very open, it was hard to defend any point. The graphics was alright, it could have been better, and my entry level graphics card could do so much. My mouse appeared to be ill-suited for gaming as the buttons do become stuck at points. Oh well.

The infantry models and the weapons modelling seemed to be similar to the previous incarnation, Battlefield 3, in fact, it seemed to be simplified. On the other hand, the website seemed to be much improved. One could change settings on the website itself which was wonderful.
