Title says it all. Don’t take the post as a “I hate Evolve! Insert mindless bickering and complaining filler here. Oh and NERF!”
No. I rather enjoy Evolve. I don’t care about who thinks what is OP or balance issues, or whether or not Caira can fully out heal a stage 2 monster. No. None of that matters. What does matter is that the PC community on Steam has now fallen to under 5K players. Why? Longevity? Perhaps, but now that is has been proven to be about 1 in 4 players are cheating, then we have no desire to play publicly any longer. Due to no anti cheat system in place, the game is now destroyed over this very issue. I want to play online, but can’t. I don’t care how many of you got “lucky” and haven’t run into a cheater. I’m jealous I admit. While I on the other hand have been unlucky enough to find the cheaters. Your basic Google search of trainers will lead you straight to Lingon’s or Mr. Anti Cheat’s trainers in which you will not be penalized for in any regard as TRS continues to allow them. Though there is a reporting system via 2K’s website, nothing is being done. You can report and record all the videos you want to. Clearly hasn’t solved anything in almost two months.
While I enjoy the core game play, playing online is no longer an option. It’s just not fun anymore. I would love to meet new players and group up that way, but public match making is over. Never again until Valve/Steam/TRS implements an actual anti-cheat system.
