It has been several months now since it was announced that third party cheat detection is live on the production shards, and the devs are "weeding out false positives". I think I've been patient, but I'm starting to lose patience over this. The situation with regard to cheating has been better lately. At least some of those who were clearly using scripts in pvp (which is where I see cheating most clearly), appear to have stopped using them because of the threat of third party cheat detection, but there are at least a few who haven't, and the longer this stage of "weeding out the false positives" goes on, the more likely it is that many of those who stopped using third party cheats will start using them again, as they begin to assume that all this talk of third party cheat detection was just that, talk. I was forcefully reminded of this again last night. There is a guy on my shard, let's call him "the best pvp'r on the shard", or "tbpots" for short, that I can never beat. He is the only one on my shard that I can never beat one on one. I'm not saying I am the second best pvp'r on my shard, because there are plenty that beat me more often than I beat them, but this is the only guy that beats me consistently all the time. Well all the time, except for twice. Once was last night. Strangely enough the two times I beat him was shortly after a client patch. UO Assist had been updated and was working properly both times, so it wasn't that, but oddly enough, "the-program-which-shall-not-be-named" had not been updated. Now before someone starts offering all of the excuses that could be offered for this guy. I have a friend I trust completely, one of the few in UO that I do trust, that has been in Vent with him, and has received specific instructions from him on what cheats to use, and including which specific scripts to use with "the-program-which-shall-not-be-named", and how to set them up "properly". Oddly enough, both times I beat him when "the-program-which-shall-not-be-named" was not working, it wasn't even close. I obliterated him in under ten seconds both times. Maybe it's a sign of weakness on my part, but I'm tired of being beaten by cheaters who get most of their "skill" from third party cheats, and illegal scripts. I find it incredibly annoying that "tbpots" wins because he cheats, and not because he is smarter, or more skilled than anyone else. He wins because he has no principles, and no shame. So my question is, what is the status of the third party cheat detection, and when are we going to start seeing action taken against cheaters? I'm tired of waiting.
