EasyAntiCheat is on a mission to provide game developers and publishers the best conditions for creating truly satisfying multiplayer game experiences that can be enjoyed by any player alike.
EasyAntiCheat's story goes back to 2006 with a founding team that has always been passionate about gaming. Having the goal of gaining insight in how game engines work and improving coding skills, the team's teenage years were spent by reversing and hacking games. Realizing the importance of an unharmed community, what started as a hobby soon evolved into the creation of an anti–cheat client used and relied upon by Counter–Strike leagues all over the world. From this point on, the client has constantly been targeted by game hacking communities, motivating and pushing the team to improve and continue learning about operating system internals and ways to scale the technology to millions of players.
In late 2013 EasyAntiCheat Ltd was established to take the challenge to the next level, and build upon EasyAntiCheat as a league anti–cheat to create and deliver an industry defining game security service. The team partnered up with Paradox Interactive who provided tremendous support in establishing EasyAntiCheat as a licensable service. EasyAntiCheat was integrated and launched into three Paradox games during Q2 2014.
Magicka: Wizard Wars chose to work with EAC to give our players the best possible competitive gaming experience, free from cheaters and exploiters. The technology was unique and has had yielded excellent results. Being one of the first titles to work with EAC there were of course many technical challenges, but we overcame them thanks to EAC's rapid response time and availability. EAC has matured tremendously both as a product and company during the development of Magicka: Wizard Wars and the player can play the skill based game without fear of opponents getting unfair advantages via cheating.
With an ongoing focus on delivering the finest end–user experiences with services that boost game developers forward, EasyAntiCheat attracted partnerships with many acclaimed game developers and world–class publishers all over the world.
Integrating EasyAntiCheat was simple, straightforward, and, crucially, didn‘t impact the performance of Warface for our players, which was absolutely vital. Before EasyAntiCheat, Warface was targeted by several communities of hackers. Today, EasyAntiCheat has helped eradicate the lion share of the cheats and hacks in the game, and when new hacks and cheats are identified, the team at EasyAntiCheat deal with them in a timely and effective manner. We‘ve been surprised at just how robust the system is, and are happy to highly recommend the service and team to anyone looking to defend their communities from hackers and cheats.
The rest is history – or the future actually. We are on a mission to deliver the finest end–user experiences, and provide game studios the very best conditions to create truly satisfying game environments. So far, EasyAntiCheat has already been used by 3 409 807 unique players around the globe. And we‘re not stopping. The game is on.
