SCEA Cancels GT Academy Round 2 Due To Cheaters

Hey! You. Yeah, you. The one who thinks you can cheat and get away with it... Okay, you got away with it but you won't get away with it again.

The Gran Turismo Driving Academy is supposed to be all about precision driving, but we've been hearing reports of cheaters in Round 2 of the US GT Academy. Participants have complained about cheaters cutting corners and doing a bit of "wall-banging" on the Madrid and Rome courses. But instead of trying to figure out who did what and when, SCEA has decided to simply cancel Round 2. Everyone involved will just move on to Round 3, which has been delayed; it was supposed to start on February 14 but we're awaiting the next GT5 update. This update will "introduce more sophisticated corner-cutting and wall-banging detection mechanisms to prevent this type of inappropriate driving." It's probably the best course of action at this point.

In our estimation, Madrid should never have been used, anyway; that thing is ridiculous and not really one of our favorites. Let's take a turn on Nurburgring...won't really have to worry about "wall-banging" or cutting corners there; only fine driving will produce good times.

Find that to be funny. They should just majorly slow down people when they try to cut corners, or just make the corner cutters fail the course and try again...like how they did with the x1 challenge.

Honestly, the GT community as a whole disgusts me.

Prior to the release the forums over at GTPlanet were littered with speculations, complaints and vibe of entitlement. "We waited for 5 years, so we are due!!" was the cry of some.

After the release, the topics and posts may of changed, but the mindset as a whole stayed the same. People are complaining about everything under the sun. Now mind you, some of it's warranted, for GT5 has issues, but just this morning, someone posted a thread about GT5's false advertising. Laughable!!

Let us fast forward 2-3 months down the road. People are cheating. Yes, I understand that cheating and video games in nothing new, but this time, it actually frustrates me.

I missed the cut for Round 2 by around a 100 or so places. How many people were cheating that had faster times then I did? How many seconds could I have gained if I cut corners? These are the questions that I pose!!

The entitlement mentality of this generation is one of the most destructive forces within our society. So many believe that they are entitled to things without having to put any effort into it. When they don't get what they want, that entitlement leads people to think that they are therefore entitled to act out in some fashion because they're entitled to their anger and hurt.

Wait.. yeah! Why can't they just do that? Get some mechanical damage into it to prevent the wall bangers from doing it again.

Actually, if the penalty was really strict like it should be, they wouldn't need it, but they should just do mechanical damage anyway. I don't see why not.

I don't know why, but this has the smell of inevitability about it. As far as I can remember, none of my times included cut corners or wall banging, and who has time to use the e-brake in a turn? About the worst you could accuse me of is hugging the rumblestrip on the inside of the corner on the odd occasion when I manage to get my approach just right. I can't remember how far I was from the cut, but it wasn't too far.

It's a shame that some people just can't stop themselves from cheating, but that is apparently the way of the gaming world now. Thank goodness I decided a long time ago that it was a 'world' I wanted to opt out of.

Well every game has cheaters. It's just a matter of time. People always find a way. Personally I don't blame Sony for giving us so many updates with no new features in a long time due to hackers and cheaters. Why do cheaters do what it is they do in the first place? Specially in CoD... have you seen youtube? There is CoD commentaries everywhere and quite often in the home page. They do it for that recognition or that #1 spot.

@Coverton
The game manual and help text indicates that you should be able to customize the ratios, so it's a feature that should be there.

Whatever the reasons for it's removal it very much hurts the customization of vehicles not having the ability to set custom ratios.

Tuesday, February 08, 2011 @ 1:04:14 PM

Funnily enough, the lack of ability to customize the transmission fully is a real problem for me, one of my favorite things to do in GT4 is to take a car that shouldn't be capable of winning a particular race and setting it up just right to match my driving style and the course so that I can take the win. Without that ability I get stuck with the game's top speed control which I personally find to be misleading anyway.

@ Highlander - This is too true, man. The whole top speed estimation is so far off, I don't even pay attention to it. I spend more time trying to iron out the unbalanced results I generally get from making adjustments.

I'm still confused as to why this customization isn't entirely allowed, to best my frustrations. If it's for the sake of competition, well then don't allow certain modifications... Scratch that, I'd be pissed about that too! :)

It honestly is a huge thing for me too. Every GT that I have ever played I have had a binder full of gear ratios for cars for given tracks that work the best for me.

It was always a large part of my enjoyment, finding that perfect set of ratios to get the very best time on any given track with any of my favourite cars.

Sadly, I have kind of been neglecting the game because I can't set the ratios. I'm not saying I dislike it, I just guess I don't enjoy it as much as past entries because of it.

You and I are on the same page completely on this one. I hate to say that it spoils it for me, but as I got to the higher races, it did spoil it a bit. It's not so much that Idislike playing it because of the lack, it's more that the irritation with that lack lets other games grab my attention. Plus I'm in more of a JRPG mood right now.

I guess we call it "cheating" for no other reason than the lack of a better word. The software let's you bounce off of walls to take corners faster. Back in the day we used to call it a "trick." You don't learn the trick, you get left in the dust. Doesn't give you the right to go calling smarter players cheaters.

I don't participate in GT academy, but when the seasonal events hit and forced a certain tire restriction and hp limit, I found it incredibly hard just to place second or third. Then I realized I could cut corners and jesus, I was in first the lap before the finish line. Is that cheating? Yes, but that early seasonal set up was bogus and unfair if anything forcing you to play with a certain car while the competition had way better cars. And forget the driving perfect bullish, because I drove a perfect as possible and 2 was always the highest.

But they fixed the limitations for seasonal events, but now I come overpowered sometimes and now that big lingering issue with GT5 appears...lackluster competition. This is one reason why I haven't played it in a while...it will most likely be shelved by March along with most games...ish is getting serious now for me.

So the "Real Driving Simulator", that the average game reviewer isn't qualified to review, allows you to bang your car into walls to pick up speed? How charming.

Hitting a wall will not decrease lap times, if you're stupid enough to think so.

But then again, your insulting tone doesn't really warrant a reply in the first place. You're going to moderate that tone in the future or you will be gone.

Tuesday, February 08, 2011 @ 2:34:53 PM

well, there's cutting corners, and there's cutting corners. In real racing if you completely miss a corner you can and will be disqualified. In my book a driver misjudging a corner and taking the long way around, or bouncing the car across the grass at the apex isn't a problem. But if people have discovered lines that let them completely miss a corner, then just like in real racing, it would seem that a disqualification is in order.

When a cheater beats you, they suck because they relied on a cheat to win. In my case I've cheated so many times in the GTA series it is not even funny. It really adds to the gameplay and really playing single player games I think it is really fun. When playing online, I can't think of a way to cheat because no cheat codes work at all online. I'm a fair player when it comes to online gaming as i don't cheat but also there really isn't a way I can think of cheating other than this incident here. How could someone cheat on cod besides hacking? Is hacking cod servers even possible?

Well, the easiest way to Spike that is to introduce an invisible piece of geometry that causes the car to flip when it does that in competition....LOL!

Seriously, I guess that they could use their knowledge of the cars and course to set minimum gatekeeper times for specific sections of a course that people are exploiting, that way the game knows what laps to disqualify.

Then again, changing the geometry a little,causing their car to flip off the course, would provide a nice deterrent since their time would be awful and posted for all to see

As long as 2 wheels stay on the track, corner cutting is often permitted.

In som, half the car needs to remain over the track.

As for wall bumping, I just don't get that issue. Surely if you hit too hard then it does slow you down. If it's a glancing hit then it doesn't.

I know that even if I only glance a wall then it knocks a couple of mph off my speed.

Anyone make it to Round 2 here? I made it around at around 101 rank (at my region). I moved on to Round 2 and I was really disgusted after watching the replays of what I thought was "impossible" lap times at Indy. Before the news became official, I didn't bother trying to advance any further.

I'm done not just because there are cheaters though. It's also because I know I would stand no chance to the fast guys that I've always known in GT5P and GTAcademy Demo that I always saw on the rankings. Yes, there are cheaters now, but the whole Academy thing is strict, so I'm confident that in the end the deserving will be selected anyway. It's not like they can't see the replay of top ten.

SCEA should take a look at Socom Confrontation Wich is an online game ONLY and has more cheaters than all the game out there all together.It's a shame that they leave us "the clean players" alone.
Slant Six , Zipper and SCEA dont give a crap about costumers Socom 4 is the final of the best shooter of all times.

Do you file a grief report about the cheater?

I'm not saying you don't do that, but *most* people don't. Believe it or not, it helps the developers and service operators to know who is cheating and when. that way they can review the online data to figure out what is being done and how to stop it. Now, if a game is no longer developer supported, you are probably out of luck. But, for games that are still actively supported, people need to understand that filing a grief report does actually help, even if the effect isn't immediate.

TheHighlander, it's a lot more complicated then that. See, the community that created the developers got screwed over big time. Slant Six know they screwed Socom Confrontation big time. They people that played Socom 1 & 2 beg for Socom 4 to have the Socom 1 & 2 feeling again. There is a fair amount of people begging for this & Zipper Interactive seems to not listen to the people that made Zipper Interactive today. They ignore their fans simply bacause they want everyone to be able to jump in Socom like if it's CoD and be able to play it. The community who played Socom 1 & 2 go to Socom(.)com & post comments on Confrontation how should it be improved but get deleted right away so people buy their game. Socom Confrontation was very falsely advertised.

If you don't believe me YouTube up BlackWido88
this guy might curse a lot & bash on Confrontation, but all he wants is the real Socom. Look him up, he speaks the truth & he drives the developers, Slant Six crazy!

@killa,

Oh, I believe you. I've seen that happen where a dev has changed direction leaving the original 'hardcore' players in the dust while dumbing dow...er I mean embracing the new 'more accessible' gamer requirements.

SMH. round 1 i got 220 in the academy. 2 of my affiliates got 140 something & the other 1 132.... glad to know out of the thousand & something people who where involved i wasnt that far off.

its suprising hearing how far some go just to be a finalist but i guess they forget they will have to drive in the final stages. no matter how much u put into a creation there will always be that one or group who wants to break it.

I haven't gotten it, either. Not even sure how you get it.

I've used the FGT a lot, though.

Just cancel the whole GT Academy thing and then when the cheaters start complaining tell em Tuff Sh*^. When I was in an racing league back in the day they always had people watching, if you were dirty driving you got a 2 race suspension which cost you points at the end of the season. We never had problems with cheaters. Races and qualifying were held at certain times and on certain days. That way everybody was under observation.
