Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt Now Uses Tough Anti-Cheat Measures and New Matchmaking System in September Update

September Update
September Update Sharkmob AB

Developer Sharkmob AB is dedicated to keeping Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt free from cheaters using tougher anti-cheat measures in the latest update.

Have you ever encountered a cheater in a multiplayer game before? If so, how was your experience? Cheaters can ruin the fun for everyone, especially if they wreak havoc in competitive games like the battle royale Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt.

For those who don’t know, Sharkmob AB uses the Easy Anti-Cheat system to detect hackers and cheaters. It seems that the company now uses the new and improved version because they were able to swing their “ban-katana” aggressively in the past weeks. This resulted in significantly fewer cheaters since the game’s anti-cheat can now easily detect them.

According to the company, the ban waves will continue and will be unannounced. This is part of their ongoing efforts to free the game from nefarious beings.

Improved Matchmaking System

Stricter anti-cheat measures are not the only highlight of the September Update. The community had always clamored for a better matchmaking system, and that is what Sharkmob AB has done with Bloodhunt’s latest patch.

For context, the previous matchmaking system used to take into account only your placement in matches. This led to a system where people could get matched up with others with significant differences in skill. This is what the company is trying to address with this patch.

Some changes in the matchmaking system are implemented so that player rating is now based on the number of kills rather than the placement in matches. The company is hoping that these changes will help you get matched up with players that have a similar skill level as you.

That said, the company is also resetting the current matchmaking ratings. While this may lead to imbalanced matches at first, Sharkmob AB believes this is necessary and will lead to much more reliable matchmaking in the long term.

It is important to note that the quality of the matchmaking process is affected by the number of people playing at any given time. In other words, if the player count is low when you decide to play, there’s a huge possibility that you will not be matched with people of equal skill.

So, what do you think? Is the game safer to play now, with the company swinging the “ban-katana” lately? Also, what can you say about the new matchmaking rating system?

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodhunt September Update is available on PlayStation 5 and PC.
