World’s Largest Video Game Fraud Operation Completed

Published

on

Chinese police, with the participation of Tencent, conducted the world’s largest video game fraud operation. The arrested group created and sold cheats for games like Overwatch and Call of Duty Mobile. The illegal income was about $ 76 million.

During the operation, police confiscated $ 46 million worth of property, including several expensive cars. The site that sold illegal subscriptions was called Chicken Drumstick. Its users from hundreds of countries and regions of the world paid between $ 10 and $ 200 per month. In the city of Kunshan, ten people associated with this criminal group were detained.

This kind of activity takes a heavy toll on the video game industry. Tencent is one of the largest gaming companies in China that suffers from cheaters. Back in 2019, a poll showed that about a third of players use cheats. Several world-famous players have withdrawn from popular games due to the increase in cheating. This was the case with Vikram Singh Barn, known as Vikkstar. He has over seven million YouTube subscribers. However, he stopped playing Warzone, claiming that the game was “in the worst condition of all time” due to hackers.

One of the most common cheats is the use of the so-called “aiming bot”, a system that allows you to more accurately shoot opponents without the need for manual aiming. Another popular trick is “wallhack”, which allows the user to see the location of other players in the game and attack them through opaque walls. Other cheats allow users to heal themselves an infinite number of times.

Intel says older games may not run well on Arc

Intel Arc graphics cards have issues running older games – they will run but slower than similar Nvidia/AMD cards. Games based on the DirectX 11 and DirectX 9 graphics APIs are reported to experience significant framerate drops. The company explained this by poor optimization of games for new cards.

Intel says older games may not run well on Arc cards

Intel Graphics spokesman Tom Petersen explained that some games on DirectX 11 will work as well as on other cards, but others may slow down. It is assumed that this is due to the peculiarities of the video card drivers. Older types of GUIs rely on the GPU driver for memory management.

According to Petersen, Intel needs more time to improve and optimize graphics cards for games. At the same time, he clarified that Intel cards work very differently than Nvidia counterparts.

He also clarified that Arc accelerators have been optimized for games running on the new DirectX 12 and Vulcan APIs. For example, the version of Shadow of the Tomb Raider on the Intel Arc A770 card produced about 80 FPS when using DX12. And on DX11, the rate dropped to 40 FPS.

Earlier in China, they introduced the A380 video card in the version from MSI.
