I wonder if it has occurred to DICE that enabling stats resets has now removed one of the best tools for keeping hackers off servers?

Many people used to use Procons Insane Limits Plugin to check players battelog stats ON ENTRY to their server.

From there it was easy to check SPM,SKILL etc, or even use calculations, and then add a kick/ban for the shall we say shadier characters out there.

Since the release of premium, all that appears to be history, as it seems impossible to check those stats anymore.

More detailed discussion of the issue can be found in the Procon forums here.

This is just DICE's version of Prestige and to allow players to start again because they have not given the option to create new soldiers on your BF3 account. But I do think you have a good point there.

Yeah, those are fair points. Unfortunatly, DICE could give a flip. While at first look, they "helped" EB fix the pb_ss issue. But in the fix, they locked the x,y, to center screen. In other words, feel free to run mini-map esp and an aimbot.

Then the no demo/spectate on a "PC first" release. Maybe once EA/DICE figures out a way to monitize it, they will add a battle recorder when they offer the Platinum Edition for $130? NVG_side

I would like to see a web-based cheat detector stat analysis tool like someone made for BC2.

Maybe the external stat sites can add an option to show how many times a players stats have been reset or to keep record of stats before they are reset.

Eh, we're grabbing the JSON stats data off of Battlelog. I'm pretty sure that's not a supported usage. DICE are free to change that stuff how ever they want, no guarantee that any tools grabbing that stuff will continue to work after a change. It's use at your own risk.

Also, if there is too much complaining, DICE could stop providing the API for that JSON data altogether. Then we'd be really screwed. So count your blessings.

Besides, we've worked around the problem. You can now get every stat you want, all-time and reset, at the cost of minor rewrites to your limits.

I don't see this being a problem at all.

It only resets 4 stats on your stats page. Accuracy, K/D, SPM, and W/L ratio. On the top right of your page.

You total stats since the beginning are not changed. Your main stats still show the 'current cumulative' Accuracy, K/D, SPM, and W/L ratio figures

Good to know, thanks.
