Cheating in Halo 2 out of control...

ParryAllParryAll Dangerous PostsJoined: Posts: 3,159
Playing team slayer, and my health just starts magically depleting. Everyone on the team is like WTF until its 10 zip and we realize they are using standby (or thats what my friend said its called). We start bitching and the other team can here us, they tell us that if we stay they will play fair. We all bail, and later realize one of the dudes was a 34!

Not two games later in team skirmish, we are in the base when our flag magically disapears, the game goes to the configure screen, when it comes back "round over" 1-0.

Big team battle, we go up 1-0 and are on defense. Again the magic health depletion/instant death. We somehow manage to hold them regardless and win despite the cheating.

This is just way out of hand now. If you can get all the way up to a level 34 by cheating, and not get banned, something is wrong.

    Ok I'm gonna inform you about a few things.

    On Zanzibar if you grab the flag and put it in the corner where the stairs are then you can go outside and jump on some crates and grab it from inside the base. Thats probably why they were able to grab your flag without you knowing about it.

    And on beaver creek if you like to use the battle rifle/plasma pistol combo then all you have to do is grab the battle rifle and walk to the back wall of the base, run along the wall and you can pick up the plasma pistol from inside the base.

    Theres plenty of other shit in halo 2 that you can do involving going through walls.

    I played a lv42 that played like a lv8 or something........and about the cheating, alot of people started to use the rocket/sword trick alot in zanzibar.......it's getting annoying seeing one guy fly from the other end of the screen and kill you.

    Yeah, the other day I played a group that was all level 29. Their clan name was something Standby.

    All I know is that I was standing at the flag when it suddenly disappears. And they score immediately. I thought maybe I was tripping(because I was high), but it they managed to score again immediately. The game was over in less than 2 mins(which IMO is impossible). I say it is impossible because we played at Coalugation(sp.).

    I do leave feed back but it seems that it does not work too good. Especially since it had already happened, and all you are doing is preventing them from doing it to others.
    The last 10 years playing MvC2, I can honestly say I still see things playing marvel now that I've never seen before. crazy - clock

    I'd rather buy 6 copies of MvC2 than buy 1 copy of TvC3!

    I am now playing ____ when _____ comes out I will be leveling up in that game, even if it is crappy because I am a gaymer!

    LOL Super MvC3? The game isn't even a year old and they are already scrapping this game.

    The bottom line is Halo2 Matchmaking is garbage because of Standby and the luck factor due to SMG start.

    I just played with 3 standbyers in a row in Head to Head. I think one of them got banned mid-game though. :rofl: The match wasn't listed in my match history at Bungie.net, so that's what I'm assuming.

    But still, I didn't realize it had gotten that bad in HtH. I just deal with it until they get their undeserved win, and leave them feedback after all's said and done. One thing you guys have to remember: DON'T QUIT! Remember that that quitter penalty is still in effect, and you lose like twice the amount of experience you would've lost if you had just lost the game. So just let them win it, leave the feedback, and move on to the next game. I know it's hard, but if you care about your ranks that much, it's wise not to quit.

    Me, I got no choice but to play Matchmakin' for the time being. I don't play during the late hours much at all anymore, so I don't meet up with any of my friends. Only freetime I have is during the day, when there's only 3 or 4 people on the list I don't like. :bluu: Solution: clean up my Friends List, I know. :razzy: I'm gonna get around to it one day.

    [EDIT] - Good thing is that Bungie is going to be addressin' this shit real soon. Copy and paste from their recent update:
    Fixing Cheats and Glitches: UPDATED

    Autoupdate for the Masses



    As it stands, the Autoupdate is scheduled to be a small Xbox Live download, and when it becomes available (as soon as testing is finished), it can be implemented by logging any Xbox with Halo 2 onto the Live service. While we encourage non Live users to borrow an account, try a free trial membership or take their box to a Live-using friend's home, we are looking at ways to distribute these improvements to a wider audience and we'll have more news about this soon.

    With the sheer number of variables on the Xbox Live service, the fantastic numbers of players involved and the vast disparity between ISPs, modems and quality of service, it took time for us to identify all the cheats, glitches and exploits. And unlike a PC game, even once you've addressed all of the problems, the solution isn't as simple as posting a patch on a website. A console game is largely immutable, and implementing changes is a significant task. The fixes we've implemented required a great deal of testing, tweaking and retesting to ensure the autoupdate process would go smoothly and provide satisfactory results for every Halo 2 player on Xbox Live.

    With all that aside, what follows is a partial list of the changes, bug fixes and anti-cheating measures we have implemented so far.


    Split Screen Enhancement


    Split screen players have long complained that their screens are too muddled with interface and messages to see what's going on clearly. The Autoupdate also removes the more trivial pop-up messages (like ammo pick up, for example) that have plagued split screen gamers. The downside is that they no longer see those messages, but in testing and polling, we've found that the cleaner screen presentation makes that a small price to pay. "Important" messages will continue to display as before.


    Geometry Glitches


    Flag Bouncing: We're fixing the super high flag bounce caused by collisions with certain objects like the conveyor belt in Colossus. Teams would often simply bounce the flag from one side to the other, thus ruining a vital aspect of that map's intrinsic design.

    We've fixed the flag-grab-through-solid-walls problem (although you can still toss a flag through legitimate places, like gates and windows). This will have a huge effect in CTF games on Beaver Creek, Zanzibar and Coagulation.

    Elite melee ghosting a glitch allowed a player (using a short sequence of button presses) to exit a vehicle and continue to an objective while all other players viewed the player as an invulnerable stationary "ghost" at the original point of disembarkation. This was caused by forcing the Xbox to "lose track" of the player.

    Sword flying will be gone from multiplayer, though we'll keep it in Campaign mode. This was basically an exploit that allowed players to "fly" by locking onto a target with a Sword while riding in a vehicle then later releasing a pent-up Sword lunge, and basically soaring, unhindered through the air. Although a noisy part of the community feels this was a fun, unexploitable bug, we have witnessed it used for cheating, and when we fix other problems, any we left in deliberately would be exploited all the more.

    We've addressed the "ghosted dropped weapon" problem, which was caused by a difference in object location tracking between different machines - a gun you just couldn't pick up, for example and is easily encountered during games between Pal and NTSC machines.

    We've fixed the tie resolution problems that automatically defaulted the red team as winner in a tie.

    We've made some changes to the way our system works when entering Clan matches basically making it easier to enter even when conditions are less than ideal. The measures used before were perhaps too strict and prevented some players from entering games with their clan.

    We've addressed the bug on Beaver Creek that caused double-teleporting this was related to poor bandwidth, and it would cause a player to bounce back out of the teleporter rather than passing cleanly through.

    We've fixed the glitch that would allow seemingly destroyed gun turrets to be used before they respawned.


    Cheats


    We've addressed the modem standby cheat. Can't say how, but we've implemented several fixes to help alleviate this problem. We can't stop people from pressing suspend modem, but we can make it less worthwhile to them. We've also added a number of ways to make it more difficult for players to abuse the fact that they are the host of a game.

    This is just a sampling of what we're fixing. Some things are insignificant, some you won't even have heard of, and others we don't want to discuss at this time. All in all, it should be a very pleasant and painless experience and one that improves your experience significantly.

    This is a partial list. Many of the changes we've implemented will be invisible to players. Some are simply minor tweaks to networking or performance code. Some are more important, but happen in the background. Some fixes will simply remain undisclosed to prevent further abuse of the system, and we realize that even this tremendous run of changes won't be entirely complete and that abuses by unsportsmanlike players will continue, but we're confident that these tweaks and adjustments will improve the experience for beginners and experts alike.
    Should've had this long ago, but better now than never, right?

    Hopefully this will improve things.
    There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment.
    A man's whole life is a succession of moment after moment.
    If one fully understands the present moment, there will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue.

    I hope they reset the Stats so all the gay Standby homos dont keep there 30's and above ranks that they dont deserve. Even though I like my ranks I will be willing to start over just so I know if the people I am actually playing are worth my time, cause I got like 32's and crap on my list that I never play with because I figure they Standby and prob arent even good and will just make me lose.

    I just got stand-byed ten minutes ago. Every other bug they could have left alone, stand by is the one that fucks everyone up. My team sat there for ten minutes waiting to be host and then when we were it took another ten minutes to find opponents (because everyone is doing the same thing we were)

    Bungie announced they're gonna do that update that SaiST listed on Monday, April 18th. In addition to the stuff listed, there's also gonna be some rebalancing of the weapons. Grenades(plasma & frag) are supposed to be far more lethal than before, the brute shot gets a boost in power, and all melee attacks are gonna do more damage(with airborne melees being near instant kills).

    As far as the new maps go, four will be released before the end of April, two of them being free downloads that will be integrated into the matchmaking playlists, and two that will cost $5.99. For the time being the $$$ maps will have their own matchmaking set. JUNE 28 is when the five remaining maps will be released, either buyable through XBL downloads or through the "Halo2 Expansion pack" that will be available in stores(reportedly) around the same time. All the maps will be made free to download mid to late August, at which point all 9 new maps will be integrated into the normal matchmaking playlists.....

    Hopefully Bungie's gonna take care of a lot of problems. Every interview I've read...they sound downright vengeful when they talk about Halo 2 cheaters

    This might also be a rumor, but I heard all ranks will be reset when the patch is released.

    That'd be nice bonus. Zipper blanked the Socom 2 stats when they did this huge update back in September and started everyone at zero(of course the cheaters have since taken over that game AGAIN)

    The other rumor I've heard is that there's going to be a new cinematic sequence that will show up with the downloads...and while Bungie still maintains that there will be no content for the single player campaign mode, they are saying there's gonna be a few surprises that they haven't told anyone about yet.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    The stat reset is confirmed. However, they said it won't be on monday(The date of the DLC Package), but rather, later.

    And, didn't they say that the first 4(2 free, 2 premium) maps would be available with the DLC package(Which, I repeat, is scheduled for Monday)? Along with the 2vs2 playlist? It looks like the update is going to be 'huge'.

    The brute shot didn't really get a direct boost. Apparently, it's just a side effect of the work they did with Grenades. But yes, Bungie said they didn't particularly approve of how dual wielding weapons were so powerful at close range, and the damage boosts on grenades/melees are made to make the 'Close Range Game' more interesting.

    I'm loving it.
  • SF-Zero2SF-Zero2 Pronounced AlphaZero Joined: Posts: 1,373
    The Monday 4/18 was an AUTOUPDATE for the weapon balancing, grenade and cheat/exploit problems. No official dates been set for the DL maps yet, but it shouldn't be more than 10-15 days before it happens. The stat reset is confirmed, but I'm not sure if it's gonna happen the day the new maps are available, or if they're gonna wait til ALL NINE maps are integrated into matchmaking(when they are all free August or something)

    Otherwise, I'm digging the autoupdate. Bungie themselves said that they were trying to get Halo 2 to be more like Halo:Combat Evolved's multiplayer, and I think they're on the right track. Never was a big fan of dual-wielding anyway, so I like being to club someone to death easier....brilliant move with the grenades being pumped up. I used to say "how the fuck did they survive that blast??" Now I can say "I got that bastard with the plasma....and his buddy too." :rock: :rofl: :bgrin:

    They did finally confirm the offline package(with art, etc) will be available in stores June 28th.

    Cheating is an endangered species in H2 now. I play a lot of skirmish, and I've been standby'd "once" in the five days after the update. Secondary no longer exists, along with dummying, and though primary 'does', Bungie took advantage of the update to put a bunch of stat analyzing programs into place, that effectively detect & ban cheaters. Boosting is over(Cheating the system to bring your stats up, often in the 40-50 range), and Bungie is even proposing "prizes" for the top placers in the upcoming Premium Playlist.

    Regardless.. People like Ali making excuses for getting rocked like schoolgirls doesn't change the fact. The updates have made an awesome game that much better, cured the cheating problem, and with 4 maps due on Monday, things are looking hot.

    Halo 1 was a damn good game, but Halo 2 is an overrated game that every Xbox owner feels forced to buy. It's a decent game but it's nothing to gasp about. And yes Many games are overrated, but when Halo 2 is considered one of the best games ever then you know something is wrong. Halo's popularity comes from the fact that everyone with an Xbox has to have it because it's allegedly the best game to own for the Xbox.

    The updates are hella tight and they really make the game feel more like the 1st Halo. Imo the Shotgun believe it or not acually more powerful now than it was in Halo 1. The battle rifle is even more of a wannabe pistol than before and the melee attacks are way better. I still havent noticed any difference in grenades, but I dont think the updates are done yet. It's like most of the things I hated about Halo 2 have been fixed. It feels more balanced.

    Try throwing grenades at people-they're stronger...A lot stronger...the weapon updates are finished.

    SNK Miguel....overrated, possibly, but name something that does what Halo does and does it better(and not a PC game)
    Anyhow...
    I'm burned by the four new maps....very disappointing, namely the Turf map-unless I'm missing something, this map's smaller than foundation.
    Warlock is another Coagulation in the making-big empty and Grade A boring...The other two are rather small....Bungie needs to steal some level designers from Unreal or something...the multiplayer maps are by far Halo2's biggest weakness.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    Whatever helps you sleep at night, Ali(re: noob)

    Burned?

    Containment is the best large scale map H2 has. It's "extremely" good. Sanctuary is a nuts good map too. And Warlock is perfect for 2v2, a playlist update due very soon, and I don't know what your problem is with turf. Have you never tried it on Team Slayer? It owns. The fact that you called Warlock "big" kinda makes your whole post a little stupid, though. It's the smallest map in the game. Meaning it will never be empty, as there will always be confrontation. It is, and will be hectic, as it was designed to be. =/

    Since when are Small Maps bad? Lockout is H2's best map, and what do you know, it's pretty small.

    Anyways.. The big change with nades was Plasma Nades. Frag Grenades got a tiny boost in damage, and blow up a tiny bit faster. Plasmas blow up way faster(As fast as the old frags), and do way more damage(100%, if it's at your feet).

    And, the melee does about twice as much, across the board. Basically, everything that did less melee damage than rockets now does as much as the rockets used to. Two hits kills, if done right. Brute Shot Melee does mad more damage, two brute shot shots kill, BR is more accurate, Magnum is toned down(Only thing I disagree with), warthog sword flying is gone, and rocket/sword lunging is much harder and complicated.

    I had the map names mixed up....i wanted a few larger maps because Big Team Battle gets fairly repetitive since all it ever plays is Coagulation, Headlong and Burial Mounds(at least for us, and usually it's Coag 3 outta 5 matches)...i was looking for more expansion into the big team battle sets. I don't have a problem with the small maps at all, but since the majority of them are ruled out if you have more than 4 people in a party...a variety of larger maps woulda been nice.
    Turf, I was just disappointed because from what I'd been hearing(expansive pathways, storefronts and buildings to trudge through) and to what it actually was. To small? In Turf's case yes, but I'll get used to it(hell, it was my 6 bucks, I can be disappointed can't I?). My biggest problem with Halo 2 is that there just isn't enough of it.

    One question though...I keep seeing people on my friends list pop up in matchmade games on the new maps, but I've yet to see the matchmaking autoupdate on my XBL...did I miss the update or something? Or do Custom games set to the new maps get filtered into the matchmaking? What gives?

    Dude,

    Halo 2 is a fun game.

    With the new patches it is debatable if it is now a great game.

    Is it a great as Halo CE..No. But still worth an honorable mention

    But it is still fun, if you don't like it don't play it.

    Warlock takes the crown for worst map IMO. I can't see anything on that map unless I jack the brightness on my TV to max. Everything is so dark and all those shadows, people just blend in. Not to mention 4 players is the max for that map. Playing that piece of shit in matching making is not cool. 8 people running around spamming nades, guys with BR's molesting you as you spawn and stealing your kills, shit is gay. You can utterly dominate one game and then come in dead last the next. Wizard was never a 8 person map but was best suited as a 1 vs 1 map, but w/e leave it to bungie to fuck up again.

    I'm w/ Flooper, Warlock is absolute shit. Haven't played the winter level in matchmaking yet, it's obviously Big Team Battle exclusive. Warlock should have been 2 vs. 2 exclusive. 8 ppl in Warlock for team slayer is absolutely retarded.

    As for all this debate over Halo 2 as a good game blah blah. Halo 2 is its own shooter, it is nothing like Unreal or Quake, it is much slower, and different, and should be judged on its own merits. The reason the game is so high rated is because of the insanely vivid 1-player campaign, fighting alongside a big group of little AI guys, Vehicles, etc. That is the draw. The multi player is good too, esp. w/ vehicles. Good? YEs. Overrated? Probably. Best game ever? Not even close. Still, people are not buying this because of "band wagon" syndrome. It's very fun and yes PC FPS are better but PC gaming is not mainstream like console gaming, that's why shit like GoldenEye and Halo is so popular.

    WoW, all you people are talkin about H1 and H2 like your good and know what your talkin about( Your prob decent at H2....but who isn't ). H1 One of The Best Game's ever ( Took skill, Strat, Everything )-H2 One of The Worst Games Ever( Takes No skill, just some strat ).

    All you who are saying Warlock is the worst map, that just shows how bad you are. MLG TS on Warlock will show the better team. It's the only map that takes skill and doesn't depend on the luck of the spawn.

    Bottom line....H2 sucks, and would be dead by now if it wasn't for XBL.

    I think the new updates are fucking great.

    Starting with Battle Rifles and having 3 Rocket Lauchers on Coagulation is the best thing to ever happen in Halo 2.

    I used to hate that map because of fucking snipers and Banshees (overpowered piece of shit). Now that there is more rockets for Banshees and actally having a fighting chance with the BR when spawned by snipers, I love the map now!

    Coagulation was an atomatic lost for me and the team before the update, but now, we havn't lost one game on Coagulation!! :D

    Collossus was one of our worst maps to, but now starting with BRs and the melees doing damage, we haven't lost on that map either. Before the update whoever had the Beam Rifle was going to dominate, but now it's whoever has better team work wins.

    I don't know why there's so much hate for Warlock? That's my best map haven't lost on that one either!! :D The key to winning that map is control the top with BRs. Just like in Wizard in Halo 1. Control the top with Pistols.

    There's is things I don't understand about the new update thou? Like the magnam being weaker. I read this article, The reason Bungie did that was because there was a bug that gave the player shooting the magam too much of a head shot bouns. What I don't understand is why fix the magnam and not fix the sniper, I don't know if it's just me? but it seems WAY too easy to a head shot with the sniper in Halo 2. Sometimes it dosen't even look like you hit the guy in head and you still get a head shot?

    Well anyways I'm just saying that I like Halo 2 and I cosign fatboy.
    If you don't like it don't play.

    Love, La Bamba

    LOL, ya getting on a sponsored team that I've never played with until Orlando then getting like top 16 in a game I really hate and don't play is getting GGPO'd. LOL, you talk like you know what your saying. Plus, my team mates were horrible it was like getting top 16 when it was only me playing. I've beat so many Pro's in H2 it's not even funny. I hate that game with a passion and barely play it. Yet I'm still better then 95% of the people who play it.

    Also I got like 4th in the Halo1 2v2 side tourney losing to the team who got second by 10 kills off-host on my worst map. Any time you wanna try me in Halo or Street Fighter feel free to put some money down on it. And stop tryin to be an E-Thug like everyone else on the MLG Forums.

    Now it's time for you to start talkin some random shit and make stuff up. That's what MLG is famous for. Don't come to SRK and try turning it into MLG.

    Also WTF!?!? He look's ugly to. Thanks for that I am really upset a guy thinks I look bad. LOL, I bet I've got more pussy in a week from hotter girls then you've ever seen. Then you've got in your life from your mom or anyone. Your mom's pussy is prob the ONLY Pussy you've ever seen. Oh and were you at Orlando?!?!? Also if you were and you knew who I was why didn't you come up to me and put some money down on those skillz you think you got? Your a scrub and always will be.

    EDIT: Damn, I just can't get over how this guy says I look ugly :lol:...........I'm just happy my g/f who looks like she could be a model or in Playboy doesn't think that. Ok, I'm gonna stop before I write a damn book about scrubs like you.

    A hand model, right? Do yourself a favor; use your "girlfreind" to grab the mouse, edit that post and click delete. Then have her punch you in the ovaries until your knuckles meet spine.
