Nintendo implements new anti-cheat measures in Splatoon 2

Well, I guess the hacker that begged Nintendo to protect against cheaters in Splatoon 2 through the game's leaderboards got their attention! It turns out that a little less than 2 weeks ago, Nintendo implemented some new measures to protect against online cheaters in Splatoon 2. The game is now actively monitoring for people getting involved in funny business, and flags their accounts for banning. If you're a Splatoon 2 cheater, it seems your days might be numbered!

To be fair, I have a feeling they were aware of the problem before that.

Let's hope the system works well.

Fantastic news! Less cheaters = more fun to be had.

Thanks to the hacker who uses it for the good to send that message to Nintendo! Thanks Nintendo for listening.

Good job, Nintendo. I guess better late than never.

Hope they go back and apply some similar checks to at least Mario Kart too.

Edit: Actually if the post is true, measures were implemted in June... But the high score hack happened after that... So... probably not very good system so far if that is still possible.

From the source link, people speculated that Nintendo waited a few months after they implemented the anti cheat to make sure it only flags hackers not illegitimate users. After they see a lot of hackers properly and correctly flagged they started banning

Would be hilarious if hackers can edit the patch and remove the anti cheat coding lel

What's forgotten is that Nintendo banned "the hacker that begged Nintendo to protect against cheaters in Splatoon 2 through the game's leaderboards". Even though he was trying to do good.

Nice. This is one good thing about the subscription fees too. Having your account banned sucks a lot harder if you paid for it.
