Faceit = MM


#1

Faceit = MM, the community is full of cheaters already. It’s not worth paying to play like the MM. It is very sad, but it is like that.

If you think someone is cheating, please report them with thumbs down feature in the match room. There’s a FACEIT Support article which explains:

  • How to report a potential cheater on FACEIT platform at the end of the game.
  • How do you know if someone is tagged to use the anti-cheat?
  • Where can you play where all players have to use the anti cheat client?
  • What happens when a player is banned for cheating?
  • Do you get a notification of the player’s ban after you report the player?
  • Does the accuracy of your reports have a greater effect when you report cheaters?
  • Do you get some sort of compensation for your reports to the system?
  • Is there a limit to how many matches elo is returned to?
  • What types of automated cheat bans do FACEIT perform and why?

Please read it:

Also, there is a public ban list - https://beta.faceit.com/en/bans. This list shows players that have been banned due to the identification of cheating.

Please note: I’ve moved this thread to Community.

Actually it’s the opposite, MM is known for having a lot of cheaters.
Faceit AC have greatly improved which makes it a lot harder to cheat on the faceit platform.

To make this point valid you can google and check cheat forums for yourself to see that there is almost not any public cheat/bypass for faceit AC.
After you have checked that you can check up for regular VAC bypasses and public cheats that are working and have been working for YEARS.

Conclusion; If you play on Faceit with Anti-cheat as a requirement you will meet LESS cheaters than regular valve MM.

Faceit free version (Without anti-cheat) does have cheaters on it,
(that’s why you want to play with premium/supporter queues where the anti-cheat is a must)
so for that side of the coin you have some truth to it.
This is also something that have been suggested before, to just enable Anti-cheat on the entire platform… hopefully they’ll do it in the future. If you want to meet legitimate players i recommend getting the supporter/premium in order to play in the Anti-cheat required queues.
