Hey guys, since hacking is currently a major problem in AVA I decided to provide some tips on how you can reduce the chances of being in a game with one.
-When making a room, leave the title as default.
-Demo rooms are less likely to have hackers, statistically.
-Invite as many friends as you can, and ask them to invite their friends they trust.
-Check for s/d, if its over 3.0 and its a green rank, I wouldn't take any chances. Kick him
-Check for wins/losses, this is a key indicator for cheat engine hackers.
-Turn free join off and be sure to tell everyone it is off.
-If everyone agrees, turn Friendly Fire on
how to tell if someone exp hacked:
These are typical numbers from legit players
2nd Class Sergeant lvl1: 20-50wins
2nd Class Sergeant lvl5: 90-160wins
Light blue rank lvl 1: averages around 90-180wins
Light blue rank lvl 5: averages around 250-450 wins
Dark blue rank lvl 1: averages around 400-500 wins
Dark blue rank lvl 5: averages around 700-900 wins
Lieutenant lvl 1: averages around 700-1000 wins
Lieutenant lvl 5: averages around 1200-1900wins
1st Lieutenant lvl 1: averages around 1200-1800wins
1st Lieutenant lvl 5: averages around 1600-2600wins
Captain lvl 1: averages around 1600-2800 wins
Captain lvl 5: averages around 2600-4000 wins
Major lvl 1: averages around 2500-4000 wins
Major lvl 5: averages around 4000-6000 wins
Lieutenant Colonel lvl 1: averages around 4500-7000 wins
Lieutenant Colonel lvl 5: averages around 5000-9000 wins
Colonel lvl 1: averages 6000-9000 wins
Colonel lvl 5: averages 7000-10000 wins
General: averages 9000+
*These aren't set in stone numbers, but they give you an idea on what a normal record would look like. There are exceptions. In the past people have achieved captain rank with only 1200 wins, but that was with exp boost the entire way. ShamanRoy hit Colonel with 5000wins, but he exp boosted the entire way. Make note of these exceptions, some people do exp boost legitimately.
-If you notice a low level player is using an exclusive weapon (Tar Cherry/Groza/preRelease) report him immediately
-If an aimbotter joins your game report him if possible and tell everyone to leave to room immediately. Start up a new room. The last person in the room is usually the hacker. Take note of his name.
With this method I usually avoid the bulk of the hackers. Once in awhile one will spring up, making a new room is simply your best option.
