Noone likes a cheat – Warzone players are becoming increasingly annoyed with the amount of foul play in the game and tensions seem to be reaching boiling point following the news that one of Call of Duty‘s largest content creators, Vikkstar has quit!
But despite parting ways, Vikkstar claims that he still has an ‘open line of communication’ directly with Activision’.
Viskkstar, whose real name is Vikram Sing Barn, has more than 7 million subscribers on Youtube. He threw in the towel with a video where he said that the game was in “the worst state it has ever been.”[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7Lhin677Qs[/embedyt]
In the video, you can see Vikkstar apparently encountering a hacker live-streaming their actions on Facebook, while also playing the game. He said:
What an absolute joke. he said. We just happened to catch these guys in it but often you don’t even know when people are doing what we have just witnessed. Hackers could be encountered in almost every lobby of the game.
Where’s the dignity? Where’s the honour system?
Last year, Activision published a message via its website, which said:
Warzone has zero-tolerance for cheaters. We take all forms of cheating very seriously, maintaining a level and fair playing field for everyone is among our highest priorities. This is an area we have been working on heavily, but it isn’t always something we discuss publicly.
We recognise that there’s no single solution for combating cheaters, it’s a constant enforcement every day, 24/7. Rest assured, we’re committed to ensuring a fun and fair experience for everyone.
Vikkstar hasn’t said whether he plans to return to Warzone, but the fact that lines of communication are open is something right?
Regardless, one thing is clear, cheating has been an issue since Warzone launched back in March 2020 and with Activision under increasing pressure from its community, it’s do or die for the game.
