After reading the article and being a gamer for over 15 years I believe there is a solution but developers don't want to hear it.
The way games are distributed and played online today is the problem. There is no admin control over the servers. I played Star Wars
Battlefront which is one of the games listed in the article and it is filled with cheaters. Due to no dedicated servers with admins, cheaters have
destroyed the multiplayer experience.
Developers need to go back to old school and make dedicated server files. Allow gaming clans to come back and rent dedicated servers.
Give server control tools to Admins for their dedicated server and let them do the policing. It worked quite well with MOHAA, MOHSH, MOHBH, MOHPA,
MOHA, COD, COD UO, COD 2, COD 4 and COD WaW as some very good examples. A good many of these games still have servers up and running.
They are being policed by admins that keep the games clean. Anti-cheat programs are only as good as the last known exploit, BUT server admins
can more readily spot a cheater than any anti-cheat program. A good server Admin is not going to randomly kick or bann people because they want
players on their server that is the check and balance. Most server Admins make sure the suspected cheater is truly cheating before taking proper action.

My first experience with the new BF was a couple days ago, and the very first match had a rampant hacker, and the other players were like "This is normal." So I left, and won't go back, fortunately, I was playing through origin Access, so I don't lose out on my cash.

I agree with you on all of that JD. Things have changed and unless developers go back to letting admins have control of the servers and not keeping the control under their own houses then the cheating is not going to go away and the hackers will find exploits for every cheat fix they run into.
